ResQte Of The Week (Black Friday Night Edition)

IMG_20141126_152612_310Look at this little face. (AND the Peeping Tongue.) And wait ’til you read the story that came along with the photo.

“To the Internet’s finest purveyors of The Cute: This is a photo of Cooper. I adopted Cooper this week. He was found as a stray wandering alone, had fleas, no tags and super skinny. He also had worms :-(. It saddens me to think about this sweet little 5 lb. pup scavenging for food and fending for himself outdoors. It’s seems a miracle that he wasn’t snatched up by a hawk. He is a very smart and sweet dog. We think he’s about 4yrs old. He’s had a rough go of it the past few weeks but I think he’s settling in nicely. I took this picture of him. I love this website so much.” -Julie H.

ResQte Of The Week 3: ResQte Noses!

SONY DSC“Attached are pictures of my foster kittens that would be perfect for Nosevember! Their names are Von (brown tabby and white, below) and Ralph (the Siamese mix, above.) The pictures were taken by me, Robyn A. I foster kittens and cats on a continual basis for a local no-kill shelter, Challenger’s House, and blog about them.”


ResQte Of The Week 2: The World Series Whiskers

15128397134_f7ec4246a0_oThe San Francisco Giants won their third World Series in five years a couple weeks ago- that’s how these Bitten By A Kitten Rescue adoptable guys got their collective and individual names! (See info below.) Sender-Inner Geri W. provides us with some play-by-play deets. “That’s Hudson (above, as in Giants pitcher Tim Hudson) who will be devoted to you forever if you rub his little chin and scritch behind his ears. Batting second, we have little Bumgarner, the teensiest kitten in the litter. He is a cuddly little love, with large bright eyes.”

“Joining her brothers at bat is Casilla (Cassi for short,) the one girl in the bunch. An affectionate sweetheart.”

“Buster is a 5-week-old explorer for sure! He is the first of his siblings to master purring, and his adoring rumble can be heard across the room. He is also cuddly!”

“Last but not least is Sandoval***, the mellowest of the bunch with the sweetest little gaze.”

They are being fostered in Milpitas, California (outside SF) via Bitten By A Kitten Rescue. Send an email if you are interested in adopting them.

(***Dear Giants, please resign Pablo. Thx. B.)

ResQte Of The Week: Like A Bolt Outta The Blue

Always fun to do a ResQte Of The Week post as they highlight a Furball that was saved from a precarious situation. Let’s hear about Bolt, shall we?

C. Wright says, “I would like to submit for Cuteness review the newest addition to our family Bolt. We recently adopted her from a rescue in Tampa and was told her name comes from the area she and her siblings were found. They were rescued at Amalie Arena where the Tampa Bay Lightning (aka the ‘Bolts) play hockey.”

“We were told she was a male but found out…that was not the case. He older brother and sister have not yet approved of our new addition but I know they will both come around and find her as Cute and lovable as we do.”


ResQte Of The Week: Barney

Processed with VSCOcam with e2 presetAlso workin’ in the Nosevember angle, too. Suppose we could probably do a Mayberry thing as well, so- wait, we’re getting off track. Imagine that. FOCUS. Let’s hear from Andrew S. “My fiancé Lilly & I recently rescued this little guy off the streets of Los Angeles after somebody had abandoned him. As you can see from the attached pic, he’s much happier now. Thought it might work for Nosevember. Keep up the good work!”
