Lucky Shares Astro’s Cat Rescue

Shy Astro's Cat Rescue Story is a Very Happy One

I have shared many stories from my good furiend Lucky. He is a tough and brave feline. Lucky was abused by a cruel and evil human who burned him, but then he was taken in by the cat rescue group Homeless Animals Rescue Team.

Now this former street cat lives in a furever home where he is surrounded by felines and humans who love him. But he has not forgotten where he came from and helps other felines find loving homes.

You may be familiar with the work Lucky has done with the cat rescue group Rural Shelter Transports. These kind humans helped when a basket of kittens, who had been cared for by a kind human their whole life, were turned in to a shelter where the odds of them getting to live a happy life were very small.

The Basket Kittens, as they became known, were taken in by many cat rescue groups. One of The Basket Kittens, a silver tabby named Astro, did not do well when he was shown. He was happy with his brofurs and sisfurs, and he did not like having so many humans he did not know walk by to disturb him.

One day, some humans came by to meet Astro, He’s on the left in the picture. His foster human did not have much hope. This poor guy, no matter how much his foster human told potential adopters about his calm demeanor and loving spirit, just couldn’t get any humans to see beyond his shy nature.

But on this day, Astro finally was introduced to the right humans. They saw past his fear and shyness, and wanted to take him home. The wait was well worth it for Astro. After the final chapter in his cat rescue story was written, the human who took him home had this to say.

“Astro is absolutely fantastic! He has settled in very well and feels right at home. He and I spent some time this evening playing chase the light around the room. He even sits on my lap for a short while but like any young kitty he can’t stay still too long and wants to wander about.”

He had more to say about the kitten who so many humans had overlooked. “Astro is perfect,” he said.

Furiends, from unwanted kitten to shelter cat with little chance to overlooked kitten to loved family member, Astro has made quite the journey. It is a heartwarming story to share during the holiday season!

Give Perle a Home for the Holidays

Less Adoptable Cat Perle Needs a Home

During the holiday season, I understand that many of you humans go shopping for gifts to give to your family and friends. I hear it is sometimes difficult to find the right gift for someone. It is a lot easier if you are trying to find the right gift for a feline like Perle. All she wants for Christmas is a furever home.

Look at this pretty calico girl. She is not as striking as Jacey and Marley — did you expect me to not talk up my sisfurs? — but she would be a wonderful companion. Perle is one of the adoptable cats that are available at Angels for Animals.

This adoptable cat loves tummy rubs. Well, to each their own, I guess. I see the human doing that to Marley and sometimes Jacey, but I do not like it when he gives me a tummy rub and he quickly gets a swat!

Perle was scared and shy when she first arrived at Angels for Animals. But now she is one of the sweetest and most friendly adoptable cats they have. She loves to be pet and cuddled with. And since she is only two years old, Perle has many years of snuggling and petting to share with the right human.

This sweet girl has been at the shelter since February. Furiends, because she is shy, she is a less adoptable cat. That is bad because she does not like the noisy shelter and she would prefer to be in a quiet, calm home. That means that even if she were located closer to me, she could not join us. A home with three bengals running around and driving our human nuts would be bad for Perle.

If you are the right human to give this sweet but shy girl a home, please fill out the Angels for Animals adoption form. If you want to learn more about Perle or any of their other adoptable cats, please call them at 330-549-1111.

My Sisfur Marley is Getting Brave

My Foster Sisfur Marley Exploring

Yesterday, I gave you an update on my blood sugar levels and what they were doing. Today, it is time for me to update you on what is happening with my foster cat sisfur Marley. You will remember that the human moved her out to where she can see the outside and get more exposure to what Jacey and I get to enjoy.

You also know that Marley is a shy cat, and she did not like the move at all. I am her protector, so when the human moved her, and she complained, I let him know that she could not make my shy sweet sisfur angry.

Jacey, the human, and I were wondering what would happen with her. I am happy to tell you that there are good things happening with my foster cat sisfur Marley.

One of the most difficult things was getting her to come out of her crate when she was in the bedroom. It was easy for her to stay there, except to pounce on the human when he went to bed. Now, though, with so much more to explore, Marley has decided that she wants to wander around.

I have seen her sniffing at the opening to the balcony door, and peeking her head out. This foster cat is getting brave and has also started to wander around the living area. And even Jacey approaching her doesn’t make her as scared as she used to be.

Marley also does not growl at us as much as she used to. I think this may have something to do with her no longer feeling backed into a corner with no place to go. And now, she gets to work on her fur tan just like Jacey and me!

Many of you have suggested that the human make this move. I did not like it initially, because Marley was unhappy about it. But now that she seems to be adapting to it well, I like it.
