Kings River Life Magazine: December Story

Julian and Miercoles…A Tale of Two “Man-Cats”

Julian

Miercoles

Everyone loves kittens…that is, every cat lover loves kittens. So when there are kittens up for adoption at the shelter, usually they are adopted pretty quickly, unless they are black. Multi-color younger adults also have a good chance of finding a forever home. Adult blacks, especially if they are rather large, are the last to be adopted. Sadly, that is a fact....

Obesity, Kneading, Eating Bugs, Symptom Checker

Obesity in Cats and How to Put a Cat on a Diet

 Ever wonder what to do about your overweight cat? Overweight and actually obese cats outnumber cats of normal weight and are being seen more and more commonly by veterinarians for various disorders. In fact, obesity in cats can predispose the cat to diabetes, ...and more. CLICK HERE to read more at PetMD.

 Why Do Cats Knead?

 Kneading is the motion cats make by rhythmically alternating their paws, pushing in and out against a pliable, soft object (such as a lap). Not all cats knead in the same way; some never push out their claws at all, and some even use all four paws. Read more at PetMD: CLICK HERE

Is It Safe for Your Cat to Eat Bugs?

It doesn’t take a devoted cat or dog person to let you know just how different these two species are—the signs are all around us. While dogs are considered “man’s best friend” and have been domesticated, the social contract between cats and people has a few gray areas. It’s as if cats considered our offer of being fed and having a warm place to sleep and answered, “Ok, we’ll take care of the rodents, but as for the rest of that stuff—you’re on your own.” Read more at PetMD: CLICK HERE.

September 2016: Cat of the Month!


Meet Floppy Ears!

I look like a Scottish Fold kitty, because of my ears.
But I am a DHS tabby, and when Paula rescued me I had
hematoma in both ears after surgery,
and they both fell the way you see them...I'm so cute!
I'm 4 years old, and I love to eat!
I love to talk and be loved on, in any position.
I think I'd be best in a one cat home.
I'm fully vetted and can't wait to have a new home.
I was rescued from Lancaster Shelter in So. California.

Black Cat Saved!


While at the CCSPCA High Kill Shelter I noticed this black kitty at the shelter,
with a note on the kennel card "Aggressive"
... plus had been marked to be put down. 

I was able to hold her with no issues. 

I made a phone call to a possible adopter that was waiting for a black kitty.
Told her about this one. She said YES! 

I pulled this kitty, and now it has left the shelter
and is now is at her new forever home (as a foster until spayed).
Then will become their kitty forever!

We love happy endings!

Saving Isabelle...


Another senior 12 years old making it out of CCSPCA High Kill Shelter today! 

Safe/Adopted 💜 Has already left our rescue to her new forever home! 

Didn't think we would have this beauty very long. 

Was adopted right after pulling her from the shelter today.

We love happy endings!

July 2016: Cat of the Month!


Hello...my name is Namaste!

I'm 2 years old, female shorthair: white/black/calico kitty.
My owner surrendered me to a high kill shelter
who took me to an adoption event, but I wasn't adopted,
so I was sent back to be put down.
Feral Paws Rescue Group saved me from certain death.
I am healthy (fully vetted), like other cats,
and I love to receive and give affection.
Do you have a place in your heart for me?
Because I have lots of love to give to you!
