Take Me Home for Christmas

Take a Rescue Cat Home for Christmas

There are many orphaned cats that are looking for homes. This is their lyrical plea to you to adopt or foster one of these beautiful felines.

If you fall in love with one of the cats rescued from 10th Life Sanctuary by Cat Depot or from The Great Kitty Rescue, we can help arrange transportation.

Or, you may choose to adopt a cat or foster a cat locally. Check for cat rescue groups and animal facilities in your area. Your local Petsmart may be teaming with a local cat rescue group, giving them space in the store to introduce you to the cats waiting for you to take them home for Christmas.

Bramble’s Story from The Great Kitty Rescue

Bramble’s Story from The Great Kitty Rescue

Bramble is a Scared Kitty

One of the most dedicated volunteers at The Great Kitty Rescue got to know Bramble better than anyone.

Dacia first met Bramble when she was assigned to Room 10, a room of “feral” cats. Dacia and the other caregivers soon found out that these cats were not feral at all; they were just traumatized and terrified after all they had been through.

Even Bramble whose cage sported a sign saying he was mean and untouchable.

I have seen first hand when a caregiver quickly labels a cat as “mean” or “vicious”. Yes, many of the most scared cats can come across as cats you cannot work with. But to label the, set a negative tone and turn your back on them is unforgivable.

Dacia ignored the sign and took a chance on Bramble with very positive results. In her own words, “This cat is NOT feral.  He purred. He is scared and traumatized and it has been a long time since someone has been kind to this cat.”

Read Bramble’s and Dacia’s entire story and see how a little love and kindness can bring out the best in a cat, even a “Mean” one.

Sylvester’s Story – The 3rd Time is a Charm!

Sylvester’s Story – The 3rd Time is a Charm!

Sylvester ~ Formally Feral
Sylvester ~ Formally Feral

Anyone close to the Great Kitty Rescue knows that Sylvester is one of the few documented feral cats saved during the rescue. Meaning that there is documentation that shows that he was truly born in a feral colony whereas the majority of the cats rescued seemingly had been abandoned, lost, captured or given up, but they had not been born in the wild as is the true definition of a feral cat.

As you will see after you read his story, for Sylvester, the third time rescued was indeed a charm.
