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!”

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”

Happy Tails – A Rescue Story: Sophie

You may remember our profile on The Zoo Rescue in Southern Alabama, featuring Jennifer and her husband Tony, who rescue cats and dogs in hopes of finding them homes, but with the understanding that they’ll stay forever unless a good home is found.

Here is the story of one of their rescues – Sophie, who came to live with them in September 2015 and has made herself quite at home.

Jennifer shares Sophie’s story

How did Sophie come to live with you?
A friend of mine, Heather, who feeds stray/feral cats in her neighborhood, mentioned she’d been feeding a cat who she felt to be special. She could tell the cat had been in fights and that she seemed older because she moved very slowly and carefully and didn’t jump or play. Continue reading “Happy Tails – A Rescue Story: Sophie”
