ResQte Of The Week 2: Sproing Overload

Video created with Apple Final Cut Pro™ by Cuteporter KB, as well as this text which sums it all up quite well: “After months in the care of the California Wildlife Center in Malibu, California, five orphaned fawns enjoy their first moments back in the wild where they belong. Orphaned fawns are prevented from seeing human faces and forms during their time in the rehab setting. In keeping with that policy, this video was filmed from behind a camouflage screen in the woods, by a volunteer.”

ResQte Of The Week: Mr. Tux

Without a doubt, no one looks better in a tux (with the possible exception of Penguins and James Bond) than Mr. Tux!

Mr. Tux1
“This is Mr. Tux! He’s about 6 weeks old and I found him at my local cat rescue, The Long Beach Humane Society in Long Beach, New York. They have lots of babies there looking for their forever homes. This Widdle Guy was snatching my hair, chewing on my eye glasses and climbing on my shoulders. Thank you so much for your consideration!” -Rochelle L.

“It is hard to believe how adorable this litter of mystery kittens is, born immediately after the Napa CA. earthquake (Aug 24th at 3:20am) in my godmother’s carport.”

“We did not know the cat, but now she is a permanent part of our lives, along with probably 2 or 3 of the 6 kittens (as many as we can afford to keep!)”

“‘Lucie Morales’ is our new part-Lynx-Siamese Mama cat, and she has six kittens, now 7 weeks old. One Manx Siamese, one Manx Snowshoe, and 4 variations on Siamese/Tabby/Snowshoe combos.”

*Note: Michelle says all kittehs have been spoken for: “They were all claimed long ago! So, at least for the present, no more kitties are actually available. I can send an update if that changes!”

ResQte Of The Week: Sir Pounce UPDATE!

IMG_4025‘Member the story from last week? Sir Pounce has a home! Robin C. updates us. “He was taken in by a wonderful family yesterday where they’ve already made a special space for him. He will have a 3 year-old boy, 2 dogs, and a cat friend to play with. Thank you so much to everyone for your help and good thoughts!! His new mom says: ‘He’s doing great. Slept on my bed last night, slept on the dryer all day while I was at school. Using the litter box no problem and eats the food I’ve been giving him. He’s fitting in just fine.'”

Robin adds, “It makes me Squee to know he’s sleeping in someone’s bed now! And his new family found him through some posters we put up on Marshall’s campus. Will send pic when I get it!”

(Friday Edition) ResQte Of The Week!

bolt“I hope you can post one of these pictures…so unusual for this time of year. Baby skunks are active during the winter and this little guy is so behind…at only 4 weeks old, “Bolt” is our 1st ever fall baby. Found staggering all alone in a parking lot, he was rescued and will spend the winter months at Woodlands Wildlife Sanctuary. We are also hoping to win a grant for a new wildlife nursery and need people to vote for us!” -Monika M.

ResQte Of The Week 4: Wally

Got a note earlier this morning from The Furrtographer. “His name is Wally and he’s available for adoption via Grateful Dogs Rescue. I’m fostering him, and he’s a Mini-Aussie. He had his eye removed due to glaucoma- the blue thing is a donut to keep him from scratching the stitches.”

[*Note: Wally seems very stressed in this video. Not. Speakers up, and notice the Random Paw Twitching. -Ed.]

ResQte Of The Week 3: Do U Know Sir Pounce?

Robin C., Ph.D. at Marshall University in Huntington, WV sent us this email:

IMG_6403
“Not sure this is something you do, but I thought I’d try. Meet Sir Pounce; he showed up on my friend’s deck near Cabell-Huntington Hospital 4 months ago….and hasn’t left. He has a collar and is litter trained and he’s very clean, but he’s not chipped and we can’t find his owner.”

IMG_7939
“He’s very sweet and gets along with dogs. Neither of us can take him in and we’ve just about exhausted our resources for trying to find him a good home. He wants to come inside so badly, and we want him to have a wonderful indoor home, especially before it gets cold here in WV. There is only one non-kill shelter in our area and they’re not accepting cats, so we don’t know what to do!”

“If you could possibly post his pictures and info we’d be so grateful! I’m also willing to drive him a fair distance for a good home. Thank you for all you do. Your site is exactly what the Internets should be used for!” [If U are interested in adopting or know where Sir Pounce belongs, drop us a note and we'll forward it to Robin. Thanks. -Ed.]
