We were pleased to be able to adopt out 5 of our rescues on the weekend. Two were adopted out together which is always a delight for us as Gordie and Franny are bonded. They are now living in Nipigon ‘of all places’ – for those of you who remember that TV advertisement. We often […]

We were hoping that the cats pulled last week would be in relatively good health but most are suffering from upper respiratory infections – some more severe than others. Here we go again….. One newborn did not survive. New buffer mom was upset to find the little one dead in the morning, even though she tried […]

We had to resort to Plan B…rather, we had to create Plan B last night so more scrambling, brainstorming and keeping the electronic highways busy with emails, texts and phone calls. Moves were planned out with  moves today. It’s like playing dominos. If this works, then this can happen….. More cats are being shuttled from buffer […]

Some brainstorming this morning to figure out moves and thankfully a foster was available today to receive a little one and one of us was available to do the pick up and delivery.  Moving the kitten today […]

A flurry of adoptions on the weekend as a litter of kittens found their forever home. It was the culmination of weeks of emailing, checking our waiting lists and email/phone calls back and forth confirming or crossing off/adding names. We double check amongst lists we all keep. Anxious families awaited their arrival as Shelley drove them […]

A new town foster mom was disappointed but happy that the boys might have a forever home.  Last check of email before meeting the country foster in a parking lot to pick up the boys – family emergency. […]

We are blessed to have a board member and buffer mom who is a veterinarian. Alex joined the team last year and she’s probably wondering ‘what was I thinking?’ especially after yesterday. Alex has been caring for a number of cats she pulled from Animal Services last week including the mom and litter which developed severe upper resp. Yesterday […]

Everyone was settled in and we thought we could relax a bit until the cats were finished their buffer. All we had to do was think about where we could foster them. Email/phone call inquiries were answered. One caller insisted that one of our adopted cats was his tabby girl, missing for 8 months. We keep records of […]

We couldn’t get to Animal Services before closing but one of the kennel attendants stayed so we could pick up the cats. They identified 18 to be PTS and we pulled them all. How can you look at a cat and know it’s going to be killed and walk away?  Some will even reach out […]
