Congratulations Sterling and Solo!

Sterling and his BFF, Solo, then and now, have been adopted together! I'm so happy for them and their new and forever family! So many people wanted Sterling. I've had offers from as far away as Texas and for as much as $350 for him alone (he doesn't WANT to be "alone"!). These babies don't go to the highest bidder, or to far-away lands that I cannot do a home visit. They go to the most purrfect match I can find, and trust me, they are going to their most purrfect match ever. Don't forget, they have siblings and friends that are just as adorable, awaiting THEIR forever homes here at The Little Cats' Rescue Sanctuary.   See them under "our cats" and grab an application!   Hurry!!!!

Rest in Peace, Bojangles. You are deeply missed.
Bojangles left this planet today, 4/20/2018, while resting in my arms. We spent his last hour in our favorite spot with TyTy, Rudy and Texas. Bo didn't suffer and passed peacefully, fully aware of our presence. We are so very sad.   He was a brave little guy. 

I pulled Bojangles from "death row" at Animal Control six years ago.  He was less than a year old and was about to be killed for no reason other than "no space."  He was a happy kitty, and a very good boy.  Bojangles loved to be outside in our yard with his best friend, TyTy.  The past year, however, his health deteriorated.  We tried everything - he went down to five pounds, then gained back two, and we were so hopeful.  I think he was never adopted, because he was supposed to live out his life with me and TyTy.   My life will never be the same, having lived with and loved Bojangles.

Founded by RaeAnna Saks and Ruth Ritschel in 2002, The Little Cats' Rescue in New Port Richey, FL  has been rescuing, rehabilitating and re-homing at-risk cats (and a few dogs through the years!) while actively promoting and assisting with community spay/neuter endeavors.   We are a 501(c)3 all-volunteer staff, dedicated to the goal of no more homeless cats, no more senseless killing, and no more unwanted litters!  The 50 felines who reside at our Sanctuary range in ages four months - 15 years, all of them rescued from dire situations such as "death row" of various "shelters,"  abandoned in garbage dumpsters,  in our driveway, or tossed out or left behind by their families.  Upon arrival, they are tested for FIV/FeLV, medically treated as needed, appropriately vaccinated and spayed or neutered when ready.  Most come to us with deep emotional scars and/or urgent medical needs. Many of our population are special needs or senior cats requiring on-going veterinary care. More than half of our cats have been here longer than five years. We promised every one of our rescues a safe and loving forever home at our Sanctuary, if no suitable home of their own is found.  Our cats, once acclimated and medically ready, live freely, uncaged, in a 2,000 sq. ft. home environment.   We accept  our cats back, should the adoption fail for whatever reason.   As the population continues to age, our veterinary expenses increase.   
For example:  Nine-year old Gladys was returned from a one-year adoption in danger of losing her eye.  She's been undergoing treatment, with improvement, since November, 2017.  Her vet bills have been over $800 and counting.  

 Eleven-year old Hart,  ten-year old Tootsie, nine-year old Cameron, six-year old Bojangles all suffer from chronic IBD.  

Bubba is nine and lives with Stomatitis, having had most of his teeth removed.

Eight-year old Skeeter, 14-year old Cleopatra and others need critical dental care.
No amount is too small; all donations are tax-deductible and 100% of your dollars go directly to the care of our feline residents.  If you'd prefer, our mailing address is 4229 Abaco Court, New Port Richey, FL 34653.

LYNNE PAUL lives with us in memory and will for evermore. On March 24th, 2018, she would have celebrated her 60th birthday. Lynne was a beautiful soul, who will never be forgotten by her companion, Mike Robertson and beloved cats Max, Maggie and Maddie.

LYNN was a true champion of cats, and The Little Cats' Rescue's kitties and volunteers are so grateful for her support and that of her family and friends.
