Despite the loss this week, we were happy to save one. I received a phone call from an adopter complaining about her cat’s persistent condition which lasted over a year.  After some investigation, it became clear that his condition was not caused by what she described. The adopter was not providing the care required.  Not […]

One of our adopter’s kittens was sick and we hoped for a full recovery but it wasn’t to be. This is their second KK cat which was put to sleep within a year and we were so deeply saddened for them. We do our best to ensure our rescues are as healthy as can be […]

A text last night from a buffer/foster mom concerned that her pregnant rescue, Hermione, just pulled on Friday, had vomited and had diarrhea. After some questions and answers, we decided to wait and see before I ran over with some specialty food and sure enough….a  phone conversation at 6:30 this morning: Hermione had given birth to one baby so far, in the litter […]

Here we go again with song titles but thought of it as I was driving back and forth and back and forth and back and forth with vet runs for spays this week. We delayed a spay on one little girl and had her done the next day just in case. All is well. She […]

We are pleased to receive another cheque through an RBC grant. I believe it’s $1000…I hope it is….and another photo shoot tomorrow. People will think we’re rolling in the dough or is it fresh cat litter? Our bill on Friday was over $2000 and Marlys and I who pay most of the vet bills were […]

Do not go gentle into that good night. Rage rage against the dying of the light. Ruth fought hard to save little Squeakers. We thought we lost him a few days ago when he appeared to be lifeless but he recovered. Little Squeakers was just 2 weeks old when he was brought to Animal Services…a […]

Been quiet on this end. The usual “panic” which we should be getting used to, but never do – when we receive notice on cats that are to be killed and having 24 hours to say yes or no. So far we’ve been able to say yes to them all – except for the feral […]
