The One That Got Away

Last month I did a profile on foster parent and fellow blogger Heather Davies. I asked her at the time if she had a favorite foster story to share. While she said she had a couple, her nearest foster fail was a kitten named Hamish. So today, Heather is doing a guest post to share Hamish’s story with us. The quoted text in the story contains passages from original posts from Heather’s blog.

The Story of Hamish

Beautiful queen, Arabelle, and her six kittens were brought to Toronto Cat Rescue from one of our partner shelters outside the city. She was friendly and Continue reading “The One That Got Away”

Caelum Gets Adopted!

white cat with blue eyesSophie here! You may remember that the Human Lady Mama told you how she attended America’s Family Pet Expo last month. You can read all about that here. At the end of the post, she teased that she was going to be sharing an adoption story that came from that very expo. That is one of the things that makes the expo so great – all of the animals who find forever homes! Since the Mama said I could have more blog time, I thought I should be the one to tell you about this fellow kitty’s adoption.

So, it was a dark and stormy night… (Sophie! Stick to the facts.) Ugh, the Mama is no fun! But she’s right. We don’t have many dark and stormy nights in Southern California. Let me start again. Continue reading “Caelum Gets Adopted!”

But before you mosey on over to read the musings of Jo’s three cats, why not learn about how the gang of three came to be and how Jo became their chosen one.

Happy Tails – A Rescue Story: Bones

Fellow blogger, Luca, lives in the countryside near Rome, Italy and has rescued many cats. Luca shares with us how his cat Bones came to live with him in April 2006.

Where did you find Bones?
On the terrace of my in-laws.

How did you come up with the name Bones? 
I gave him this name because when I found him, he was sick, malnourished and dehydrated. He was very thin. He had severe rhinotracheitis and an intestinal hernia. He was in serious danger of losing his life. Continue reading “Happy Tails – A Rescue Story: Bones”
