Death, Resurrection, New Life…Text at 10 a.m. Easter Friday. It was Alex. 20 felines needed to be pulled… some sick – all vulnerable. Most were kittens, mom with week old kittens. Panic…okay but where do we put them? Texts and brain cells flying.  Buffer homes are full; we could not put at risk their felines by […]

We are so blessed to have wonderful foster families. They are patient and caring and go “beyond the call.” When we receive inquiries about a particular cat, we ask our fosters about their rescue’s personality, habits and whether they are suitable for the family inquiring. Invaluable. Some of our fosters welcome calls from potential adopters after […]

As you are aware, we are given notice and have to find space within 24 hours. As our buffer homes are closed due to holidays, we had to scramble to find a spot for a mom and newborn babies even with an extension. We also received notice of a few adults as well.  Thanks to Elizabeth […]

Jinxed myself when I wrote about how quiet it was. Sitting at the computer this March 14th Monday morning, an email arrived notifying us of some cats that have not been claimed and will be euthanized. “Please let us know by 8 a.m. on the 15th whether or not you will accept these cats. If so, […]

Talking to an individual about a fundraising possibility for next year. It would mean asking for volunteers to sit on a committee because the board does not have the energy/time/resources to do it ourselves, but the potential is exciting. It would not only help with fundraising for our Rescue and Adoption Centre aka Sanctuary, but […]

Or perhaps, knock on wood. We have had a number of adoptions these past few weeks – some of our cats that have been in care for months so we’re happy for them….AND we pulled one cat early this week leaving NO strays in the Stray room.  There are few stray unclaimed dogs as well. We’re […]

These past couple of months have reminded me of the importance of preparation. We have had calls from families looking for placement of cats belonging to family members who are ill or have died. We do not like to think about it, but illness and tragedy can strike a pet owner at any age, leaving […]

We know from the research how intuitive our pets are to our needs and how they improve our lives in every way. Little Crissy (although she looks like she hasn’t missed many meals) is my nurse maid. She knows when I am not well and will stay close to me and touch my face with […]

Sorry to be so quiet. Was sick – thank the Lord for OHIP.  Still am not back in the saddle. The Kitty Kare team carried on, adopting, answering inquiries, organizing….and I’m boggled trying to catch up to some degree.   Sorry to say they were also “in the dark” but respected my need for privacy…geesh – […]

….all is bright – now with a skiff of snow. It is also quiet which is such a blessing after a busy fall. There have been a few phone calls but no major panic requiring immediate action. Carol did receive a phone call about a person throwing a kitten out of their car window at Robins. Disgusting. Sometimes I […]
