Welcome to Kitty Mart 2, “The Rescute”

CO Peeps, my post about Convenience Store Kitties led me to a rescue story. Now, cats are known for thinking they can take care of themselves but, luckily, we know better don’t we? Yes we do, just as long as you let them think it was their idea. And so, a very kind peep decided to take care of the Convenience Store Kitty you will see in this absolutely adorbs video: (passes around tissues in advance)

Ultimate Momo ResQte + UPDATE!

8562869Calgary and Southern Alberta were struck hard by flooding last week. Cuteporter Leah H. fills us in on the story of Momo. “The small town of High River was particularly hard-hit. Kevan Yeats tried to escape in his truck with his cat, Momo. The flood waters overtook the truck and they had to swim for it.”

“I found this amazing turntable cat scratcher at a garage sale, and when I told them I was going to buy it for the no-kill shelter I volunteer for, they refused to take my money and made me take it for free. I decided to take some photos to show them how the kittens at the shelter enjoyed it. Here’s a link to the set on Flickr  in case you want to check out some of the others! The black kitten in these photos is named Squeakers, because every time the staff at the shelter picked him up, he squeaked!” - Andi M.

THIS JUST IN: Kazakhstan ResQte NewsFlash!

Cuteporter Wendy Q. has the 411. “Nellie was rescued from the streets in Astana, Kazakhstan, a few weeks ago. She’s now living happily with her new owners and has her own blog. She is fearful of many things at present – especially sudden noises or movement, but has a naturally feisty nature and is adept at plundering socks, gloves and underwear.”

From homeless on the streets of Kazakhstan to having your own website. (AND hoomins who love you!) Congratulations to Nellie!

Little Orphan Eggie

In over 40 years of rescuing our feathered friends around the world, this was one of the most anticipated arrivals of all for International Bird Rescue. A severely injured mama Mallard was brought in to their San Francisco Bay Wildlife Hospital and found to have a single egg. Mama could not be saved but the veterinary staff were able to save her one egg. 26 days later, after waiting and wondering, a perfect mallard duckling hatched!

Miami Marlins Adopt-O-Mania

On Sunday, June 2, the Miami Marlins did not bat 1000. They batted 102! That’s how many furry friends found forever homes thanks to the Miami Marlins Ayudan (Spanish for “help”) Team of community outreach volunteers, along with the Humane Society, Animal Services and The Cat Network! That’s some major league teamwork, peeps.

Go Marlins! Look who’s on the Home Team now!
