Friday’s Featured Feline: Phoebe

Phoebe - available for adoption

Meet Phoebe

I didn’t get much information about this gorgeous girl so I am letting each picture of her speak 1,000 words. Phoebe is available for adoption from A-Pal Humane Society in Jackson, CA. Contact them at 209-223-0410.

Here’s what A-Pal told us about her:

Phoebe is a 6-year-old dilute calico. She was turned in at the animal shelter as a stray so we do not know much about her other than she is very sweet.

Friday’s Featured Feline: Spookie

Here I am with my very first kitty from A-Pal Humane Society in Jackson, CA. I’m excited to be an Advo-Cat for this terrific rescue organization and hope to make a difference in helping place their available kitties.

Adopt Spookie

Meet Spookie who is anything but — just look at that face!

Here’s what A-Pal has to say about him.

This handsome 8-year-old boy wants nothing more than to be petted. He is a real lover boy who would make a great lap cat. Spookie has had some bladder issues and needs to be fed Hills CD diet, but other than that he is healthy and happy and ready to go to his new forever home. Stop by the Feed Barn in Jackson if you would like to meet him.

Petco – More than Costumes

If you read my post, Hard Decisions, you know that mom is trying to find new homes for some of my adopted Petco - More than Costumes - Fontana available for adoptionbrothers and sisters. MeoowzResQ had their regular Sunday adoption event at the Petco in Anaheim yesterday so mom took Fontana to see if someone might see her and fall in love. Fontana is a beautiful Siamese mix with gorgeous blue eyes — almost as striking as mine! She is a sweet girl who loves to cuddle. You can read more about her here. She was really scared at first but mom held her for a while and she realized it wasn’t so bad there. Unfortunately, it was a really slow day … Continue reading

Helping Less Adoptable Pets

The celebration of Adopt-A-Less-Adoptable-Pet Week is coming to a close on Saturday, but less adoptable pets need our help all year long. Pets considered less adoptable wait for a forever home many times longer than a cute kitten or puppy. What animals wait the longest? Petfinder conducted a survey and here is what it showed:

Petfinder created Adopt-A-Less-Adoptable Pet Week in 2009 to help bring awareness to the plight of these special, unusual, or sometimes too common, pets.

Echo’s Story

Mom loves to tell us the story of how Echo came into her life. It all began with another kitty named Topper.

Mom found Topper when he was a tiny baby. She was at the stable where her horses lived. She and a friend were walking down the stall isle when they heard pitiful little cries. They looked around and finally found him hiding among some trash cans. Mom took him home and he sat right in her lap the whole way. Mom said that was pretty amazing for a little feral kitty. He made himself at home immediately.

When Topper was about two years old, he escaped from the house. The patio screen door was open a few inches in the morning when mom got up. Either someone had left it open or he had opened it! Mom looked for him for weeks and was so sad. Her search for … Continue reading

MeoowzResQ Saves Lives

I want to tell you more about the wonderful organization that saved my life as well as the lives of my adopted brothers and sisters. This is what mom has told me about them.

With most people, rescuing sneaks up on you gradually. MeoowzResQ started with one woman, founder Dani Ryan, who agreed to help a co-worker out with some feral bottle babies. Then she took up volunteering at a local shelter and with another rescue group.

To her surprise, when she arrived, there were 21 babies that would be euthanized if she did not take them. What would she do? She … Continue reading

Sunday Selfies: Black is Beautiful

I just read the silliest thing on Facebook. An article in the Birmingham Mail says that now Facebook is responsible for black cats not getting adopted. As if they didn’t already have enough problems! The article goes on to say, “Black cats are said to photograph poorly for Facebook, Twitter, Youtube and the like, with more colourful felines pre-furred. Owners just don’t like snapping selfies with them.”Black cat selfie

Really? I think this was just a publicity ploy for Cats Protection Birmingham (and I’m all for whatever it takes to get a kitty adopted) but mom took it as a challenge. Since we have little Beyonce, the foster kitten, here with us, mom decided she should learn at an early age how to … Continue reading

Foster Kittens JayZ and Beyonce

We’ve had some MeoowzResQ foster kittens in the house for about a week now but none of us bigger cats have gotten to see them yet. They are upstairs in the kitty room because they are sick and getting medication. Mom says they have an upper respiratory infection. Mom took some photos of them though and they look pretty cute! They don’t look so sick to me!

Mom says they are both so sweet. The black one holds mom’s face with her paws and kisses her nose. She had a hard time getting a picture of her. Mom says she is a ball of energy and is always on the move or wants to be in her lap and won’t stay far enough … Continue reading
