Cat Rescue Bleg – Minneapolis

From commentor & rescue angel Debit:

When I got home tonight, I saw two boys attempting to climb a tree in the park across the alley. Then I heard them calling “kitty kitty.” Then they saw me and asked if I was missing a cat. I was not.

I lured this little guy out the tree and brought him inside where he wolfed down a can of wet food and most of a bowl of dry. He looks about 6 month old, is probably not fixed and is the sweetest little lovebug. And with a household already full of pets I can’t keep him.

I have a call in to the local Humane Society to set up an appointment to surrender him, but if a local is looking for a cat I’d rather go that route.

He is such a sweetheart and was flirting like mad when he was in the tree, slow blinking back at me and me and rubbing his entire body along each branch.

I hope someone here can give him a home. Please, before my daughter convinces me that six cats is not madness.

Dayton, Ohio Dog Rescue Assistance Needed Immediately ASAP Bleg!!!!!

This is Murrey:

From commenter CliosFanBoy:

This little guy needs a home quick! He is in the Dayton, Ohio  area. My cousin told about him. A friend of hers adopted him but decided she can’t keep him as she  lost her old dog too recently. So she is going to return him to the shelter. It’s a kill shelter though and my cousin is frantic to save him. Apparently he’s a sweet little guy and house broken.  Can anyone in the SW Ohio area help? My cousin would take him but her dog is the jealous type.

His name is Murrey. He is about 2, chipped, neutered, well behaved, house broken, smart. Please, if you can’t adopt him can you help us find a rescue group in the area to help.  Thanks.

If you live in the Dayton area, or other areas somewhat near Dayton in Ohio or West Virginia and you think you can help or know of someone who might be able to, please sound off in the comments. CliosFanBoy will be checking in to see what you all come up with to help out this exceptionally good boy.

No pressure!

Thursday Evening Respite Open Thread: Did Someone Say ‘Sea Lion’?…

Also: Me, reading political twitter!

Since at least one Jackal asked about them, good news: Steve look-alike Kitty and his companion chihuahua Leila have a new home together:

… “A 6-year-old cat named Kitty and a 2-year-old dog named Leila arrived at the shelter on March 14 inside the same pet carrier.
They are each other’s best friend and keeping them together has made a very difficult situation much easier for them to handle,” Anna Rafferty-Fore, associate director of the MSPCA’s Boston adoption center said.

The inseparable pets share a makeshift quarters in a room apportioned for them, breaking MSPCA’s traditional housing protocol…

The tabby cat and chihuahua lost their home when their owners were forced to move and could not find housing to accommodate their pets.

Greater Houston Area Cat Bleg

I received an email yesterday from a reader/lurker looking for some help regarding feral cats in Dickinson, Texas. After a few emails back and forth, I got the details nailed down. Here’s what she sent me:

I live on 517 West in Dickinson, Texas and we have a very bad situation with feral cats. They are continuing to reproduce, too many kittens. We need some agency to come in with cages to capture, fix, and release these cats. This is a senior living center and most cannot transport animals. We need help with this situation. This is so unkind and cruel to these animals. Please respond so we can get some help. Thank you.

The population of cats is getting out of hand, there are some individuals who have been feeding them and don’t understand they are doing more harm than good.  Hopefully some of these cats can be adopted.  Thank you for your concern.

I talked to someone inside the city of Houston and they do not operate in my area.  I am just hoping for someone willing to come and catch the cats, etc. The lady I talked to didn’t know of any agency here that would do what we need.  I thank you for any help you can give. Once again thank you, Laraine.

So any Juicers who live in the greater Houston area and have some suggestions on how to help out Laraine, please sound off in the comments. I’m going to email her so she knows to check in in the comments, or at least lurk, so she sees what you all recommend.

Who Got Adopted???

This guy!

Baby won the lottery. Great family. Kids. Another dog. Work at home folks. Did all the right things while meeting him. Then I let them meet Scout – because he’s going to look a lot like Scout when he’s back in shape.

THEN I had them meet Bixby, just so I could say, no he won’t be that big. LOL  Bixby is a total kid magnet.

Baby jumped in the car, didn’t even look back to say goodbye. I’m okay with that.

Thanks to all of you who offered financial support! And emotional support.  Meant the world as we went through this difficult and chaotic week. And it turns out Baby’s anonymous vet bill donor is his new mom. So I know it’s going to work out great.
