ResQte Of The Week III On The Kings

DSC09554CHOTKaug24-2014Earlier this week we Checked In At The Cat House and saw some Kittehs that are Ready For Adoption! [Which is, um, why they were in THE ADOPTION ROOM! That's what the post said. Does ANYone proofread anymore? -Ed.] Now, these Cat House knuckleheads aren’t quite ready for Prime Time just yet. They will be soon. They just have to be old enough to be spayed-neutered before adoption and they’re still too little. [Of course, that DOES make them easier to snorgle... -Ed.]

ResQte Of The Week: Oswin & Twitch!

oswinsunbathingJust got this email from Hillary M., perfect for a Thursday ResQte post! “I look at Cute Overload with my kittehs nearly everyday (some days they’re too busy being maniacs to look) and I think that they would love to see themselves on the Interwebz,” she reports. “My husband and I adopted Oswin and Twitch after we lost our cat Po to lymphoma :( and they have really helped make our home feel whole again. They definitely display a love of Rule #40 (sleeping in a sunbeam,) Oswin likes to show her Toe Beans for some Rule #20 Action, and Twitch’s large ears qualify him for Rule #15. Pictures by me, OR nurse and mother of cats.” (Oswin above and next- Twitch shots three and four.)

ResQte O’ The Week 3: The Miracle Of Micro Fiber Sheets

0816141220“This is Clementine…our new rescue pup. She has recently discovered the magic of micro fiber fleece sheets. We call her “Sad Clown Face” but she is happy as can be. (Many thanks to my twin, Jennifer B., for capturing this snoozy moment!) And thank you, Cute Overload, for taking the time to glance at our new-found happiness!” -Janice P.

ResQte Of The Week 2: A Post 4 Our Fine Feathered Friends

“Hey C.O., I wanted to point your attention to B2L House, in Sunnyvale, CA. It’s run by a lovely woman named Friederike. She takes in special need birds, but mostly houses Cockatiels. Last I checked she had around 140 birds in her care. Naturally, she incurs a lot of medical expenses, and is probably always in need of funds to take care of the little ones. She took in my Cockatiel named Cloud (below) when her medical bills hit $5,000.” -Jonathan H.

ResQte Of The Week (Friday Edition)- New Haircut, New Beginning!

Buzz2People, meet Buzz The Fuzz. He’s had a rough go of it but IS ON THE WAY BACK!

Buzz3
“In February, Buzz, long haired Siamese/Persian mix, was rescued from a home under TERRIBLE conditions. He was neglected, and had to be shaved. Thankfully, CGHS took good care of him and we adopted him after a few weeks! When I saw him at the shelter, the instant I saw his amazing blue eyes, my entire body filled with love. I knew we needed to adopt him. Buzz was named after Buzz Aldrin & his buzzed hairdo. Now, he rocks a house in upstate NY with his new kitty sister Charlie, and his new Mom & Dad,” says one of Buzz’s new hoomins, Sandra S.

Buzz5
“The first day I got him home, I was nervous. I prepared the bathroom with all the things a kitty needs to keep him separated from our other cat at first. Once I was done setting up everything, I sat down. He got on his hind legs, looked at me, jumped into my lap, did a few circles, started purring and laid down. I was in tears. He’s the sweetest most well tempered boy.”

Buzz6
He has his own FB with a lot more pictures, and every week I update it with a new photo to show his fur growth. I call it The Fuzz Report. A new haircut, a new beginning.”

ResQte Of The Week: Toy Dog

There are toy dogs, like Gund™ and Steiff™…and then, there’s THE Toy Dog. “I thought this might interest you. We found this little fellow while travelling in Vietnam. The owners thought he would not survive because he was so tiny and weak, but he made it….he’s still tiny though! Due to a birth defect, he’s got stiff legs and a funny walk. Hence the name ‘Toy Dog.'” -David M.

Lucy Finds A Home (And A Leash)

There’s nothing better than reading about a Little Furhead that finds a home. Cuteporter Shawn B. says that’s exactly what happened with Lucy, her new kitteh! She says, “Exactly 2 weeks ago we adopted our girl Lucy from the East Bay SPCA (Oakland). She is equal parts snuggly and adventurous, and she loves to follow us everywhere we go.”

“When I told my friends that I was going to try a leash they thought I was crazy (I realize that cats and leashes don’t typically mix,) but it turns out that she loves getting some fresh air with us–and as you can see she’s a big fan of the view! Oh, and I’m throwing in a picture of her sleeping on my lap because c’mon, she’s too Cute!”

ResQte Of The Week (Bonus Friday Edition!)

Cuteporter Morjana C. sent this in earlier today. “First, thank you again for your wonderful site. My daily ray of sunshine (winter,) cool breeze (summer,) and hearty guffaw.

Second, [More importantly. -Ed.]…it’s fire season again. So, there are injured critters. :( And the Lake Tahoe Wildlife Center is doing their part again in caring for injured bear cubs.”

The LTWC is now caring for their 11th Bear Cub this season, the most they’ve ever had at one time. Wanna make a donation like Morjana did? Of course you do.
