Become a Donor, a Sponsor, or a Tooth Fairy!

In the past two months, we've spent $4,238 in vet bills, not including spay/neuter costs of new admissions or monthly flea prevention. While we are legally allowed to house 50 cats, we've placed a moratorium on new admissions. With a Sanctuary of (currently) 44 cats, many of whom are special needs/senior, the vet bills don't get less; they increase. Giving Tuesday brought in $1,075. Many of you are regular donors, and that's what keeps us going. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. 

In June, one of our vets came to the Sanctuary to administer mandatory rabies vaccines to everyone ($1,700). Upon examination, he recommended dental procedures/oral surgery for 20 of our cats. It's hard to know exactly the cost for each cat, as a thorough mouth exam can only be done under sedation. The best case scenario would be an average of $700 per cat, if we are lucky. Dentals are important to help prevent other serious issues as well as eliminating painful mouths.

Some of these cats have had failed adoptions (some multiple failed adoptions), some have simply never been adopted. When we admit a cat, it is with the promise of a forever home FOR LIFE. When we lost our adoption center six years ago, adoptions became harder to come by. (We lost the adoption center because, after ten successful years, a new manager told us we had to either stop doing vet references and home visits and allow their associates to approve adoptions, or lose the center.) 

It's been suggested to euthanize the cats that cannot find homes. That is not an option for The Little Cats' Rescue. It is not an ethical choice. If there is a "lifer" that you would like to sponsor, please contact us at If you can make a donation in any amount, we and they would be so grateful. Click here to make a donation by PayPal or debit/credit card.  We are a 501(c)3 nonprofit, and your donations are tax-deductable.

Here is the list of cats in need of sponsors for dental procedures and other medical issues...

Cleopatra, age 16
Carly, age 9
Bubba, age 11 (stomatitis, chronic URI)
Toby, age 12
Jupiter, age 12

We greatly appreciate any support your can give. We realize there are many worthy causes to which you can give. Thank you for allowing The Little Cats' Rescue to be among them.

Going Bananas!

This little guy was abandoned at our doorstep. He was in pretty rough shape, but Banana (named by Silas, our 5-year-old naming expert!) is feeling so much better, having been cleaned up and medication started. He was loaded with earmites and, as you can hear, is pretty much full of a kitty cold. The medications will kick in, and he will be better than new in a few weeks. We figure him to be about two months old. Please consider a donation toward his care. Your donations are tax-deductible and 100% used for the care and housing of our rescued kitties. Click here to make a donation by PayPal. 
Thank you! >^..^<

Banana, before and after. He's already looking and feeling better!

New Arrivals

Sweet little Purrsia was a homeless stray, and even though she's just a baby herself, she was pregnant. Now she is a young mother to four newborn kittens. Unfortunately, this is what happens when you feed without "fixing." PLEASE, if you are kind enough to feed a stray, be wise enough to spay her or neuter him.

We now have not one but five new arrivals to feed and care for here at the Sanctuary, plus upcoming vet exams for momma and babies to prepare them all for adoption when the time is right. We could really use your generous support and donations to purchase kitten food and all the other supplies necessary to give this sweet young feline family the best start in life. You can click here to donate with PayPal. Thank you!!!

Stay tuned... We'll be sure to keep you posted with photos and videos as the kittens grow and develop playful purr-sonalities of their own!

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!!!!
