Also, keep VOTE VOTE VOTING for Feline Rescue, Saint Paul, MN. We’re only .4% behind first place and a $1000 prize! I was asked this weekend by a visitor to our shelter what happens to cats we don’t “sell.” Of course, we don’t sell any cats, but rather put them up for adoption. But aside from that point, I told her that whenever a cat is accepted into our organization, it has a home for life. If a cat can’t find his or her furever home with other people, they live comfortably with us. We have cats in their mid teens who were with us at the very beginning, in 1997. They have plenty of room to roam, things to play with, comfortable places to lounge, plenty of food and lots of friends. And if a cat is adopted from us and their people can no longer care for them, they are always welcome back at the shelter.
We have a 13 year old stray in our med room who was just picked off the street. He was scraggly and caked in mud. Now that he’s washed, he’s still scraggly, and oh so thin. You can feel every one of his ribs and each and every vertebra. This poor guy had seen a lot in his long life. And despite all of that, all he wanted was to be petted and loved (and of course, given plenty of food). And with us, he has that. Alhamdulilah.
Just 30 seconds, each day, can help us to serve and care for more cats.
