THIS JUST IN: Bobcat Rescue

Crews fighting the recent Chips Fire near Lake Almanor, CA found a furry refugee: a lost female bobcat cub wandering dazed beside the road.


The cub, nicknamed “Chips,” was turned over to Lake Tahoe Wildlife Care group, where volunteers will nurse her to health before releasing her safely into the wild.

Kitty the ResQter

Just looking at me, you would think I’m an adorable kitten.


And it’s true, I am.

But, I’m more than cute, I’m a surrogate mother to squirrels.


When they are very tiny, they don’t try to run away, so you can cuddle them all you like, even when you get distracted by a strange noise or flicker of light.



One day, my little friend will be big and frolic in the trees. He won’t have the time to let me groom him. I’m making the most of it right now.


This takes ResQte to a WHOLE NOTHER LEVEL, Star Foxy!

Saving Miss Daisy

This one’s courtesy of Cristal G, who tells us the following story. (She even provided a tres’ appropo headline of “Scrawny McScrawnersons,” but the movie title play on words works, no?) “Daisy and her siblings went to see the vet this morning, and she was very happy with their progress and their level of activity is so high that it proves they are beginning to thrive. These kittens came to us in the nick of time, they were very inactive when they first came in. I hope to get more photos later of the rest of the group.”

Well done, CG, well done.

ResQte Makeover

Daniel writes a blog about DIYing, thrifting and fixing up his apartment called Manhattan Nest. Daniel has a ginormous heart and took a needful stray into his fold and then wrote about it.

Here’s Linus the pup before Daniel took him in:


Here is Linus after some tender loving care:

G’day, Mr. Schnozzle

Introducin’ “Caddy” the wombat.

Caddy has had a rough go of it. His Momma was kilt, leaving him in the good hands of the fine people over at the Warrandyte Wildlife Shelter in Melbourne, Australia.

Thankfully, he seems to have settled in with his Stuffy. Check the Snorfing Act-shons!


Baby wombats like Caddy spend about five (gulp!) months in their mothers’ powsches. Ehn!


Craig Borrow has a nose for news.

HEY YOU GUYS!

Could you cover me, please?


Miriam and Anne say, “When we heard that NYC has so much overcrowding of adoptable animals that they euthanize up to one hundred a day, we decided to go rescue some kittens. We ended up with ten foster kittens! They are bottle fed and burped!”
