This is Hannah. She is approximately 2 years old. She’s a love, a sit next to you on the couch kitty and a lap cat. Hannah will be available for adoption in 2 weeks. Hannah will do best in a quiet home with no other cats, no dogs and no young children. Interested people should keep an eye on Petfinder for more information and www.happytailspetrescue.org to fill out our adoption application.

Rescue Pilot Flies 51 At-Risk Cats to New England Shelters for Fresh Start and Forever Homes

It takes a village...one with an airplane ;)

“Buckle your seatbelts, it's going to be an adorable ride.”✈️

We did it again 🎉🎉 51 more cats from rural areas of North Carolina and South Carolina flew to New England last week to start a better life.

Carolina Cat Rescue coordinated the travel arrangements for our 11 passengers and 3 other rescue organizations sent an additional 40 kitties for a 51 total count.

Anyone associated with animal welfare knows that volunteers and staff face long days, heartache, guilt, and pain. Volunteers and staff in rural shelters and counties are heroes to many unwanted pets. Quietly and without praise or adoration they spend day in and day out facing more unwanted animals, unexpected illnesses, low funds and public scrutiny when there is no room for more.

But then there are days like last week when we get a big win and get 51 to safety.

Many of the kitties that traveled had been in foster care for a while - some weeks, some months, some nearly a year. All are worth saving no matter how long it takes to get them healthy and ready for a furever home.

Thank again to Pilots To The Rescue for flying our kitties a big chunk of the way.

If you get a chance please see the great article People magazine posted about our flight last week and our pilots efforts to help save more lives.

Who new our little effort would end up in People Magazine...crazy!!

Will you help us find homes for this duo?

Little G & Jack are sweet older brothers who recently lost their home due to their owner passing away. No one else in the family wanted them.

Little G is the more outgoing of the two. He's a big talker with a lot to say. He loves to be petted and loves attention.

Jack can be a little bit more reserved at first but warms up very quickly. He also loves head scratches and to be petted. His favorite thing to do is sun himself in a nice window and is front declawed.
They are around 10 years old.
Thanks for sharing!

***Urgent Foster Needed***
We are looking for a foster for this beautiful girl Victoria! When she came to us, she appeared pregnant, but it turns out she wasn't. She went to the clinic to be vetted so we could find her a home but during surgery, the vet found cancer. She has had some follow up with the vet and we are awaiting results to see where we go from here medically. Meanwhile her foster mom is going on vacation so we need to move her today. (May 19th) This could be a foster while we determine if we can help her or could be a hospice foster to keep her comfortable and happy. If anyone is interested in helping this girl, please comment here or send us a private message. Thank you.

Three words of advice for reaching out to animal rescuers: assume the best.

Assume that if you’re reaching out to someone who does animal rescue, you’re reaching out to someone who has a huge heart. Assume that they care deeply about saving lives. Assume that if they don’t respond to you right away, or at all, it’s because they’re so busy helping animals. Assume that you’re the 10th, 20th, or 100th person to reach out to them today asking for help. Assume that if they can’t help you, it’s because they are already at max capacity. Assume that you do not know or see a fraction of what is on their plate. Assume that they might be exhausted. Assume that they might be grieving, or tender. Assume that they are a loving, kind person who is a source of good for the world. Assume that they are worthy of being treated with consideration and respect. Assume that they are human.

Because 9 times out of 10, if you assume these things about an animal rescuer, you will be right. So when you reach out to an animal rescuer, let your words be filled with gratitude, patience, and understanding. Don’t use your words to jab at animal rescuers for not being available enough, not doing more, not “caring,” not being able to single-handedly save the world. Treat animal rescuers with compassion, not just when they can help you, but even—and especially—when they can’t. And when they can’t, don’t assume the worst. Assume the best.

Borrowed off the Kitten Lady...no truer words have been spoken.

Happy Whisker Wednesday from Moe!
Moe used to spend a lot of time hiding in his cubby, but recently he's been spending more time exploring. He likes to sit under the cat tree and on top of it. He is becoming more social. His beautiful golden eyes have so much to say. If you're interested in fostering Moe to help him socialize a bit more, let us know. He's just under 3 years old. #whiskerwednesday #foster #adoptablecats

We hope that whether you are a fur-mom or a mom to a human that you're having a Happy Mother's Day today! Our mother cats are all doing a fabulous job with their kittens, and we are wishing them a Happy Mother's Day as well. If you would like to gift our mother cats a Mother's Day gift, they'd love litter for their little ones!

This is a wonderful organization in Hudson, NH, I have already sent several people who are looking for cats to you. We adopted brothers Cynn and Fluf, and we have turned them into lazy house cats!! We've changed their names to Chumly and Goldie. It's kinda funny they eat 3 meal a day and of course with snacks!! They never hide but of course tomorrow will be the big test when my cleaning-lady comes … In the beginning they would wake me up at 5am but that was only the first week. Yesterday they jumped up on our Bose and put music on maybe they were having a dance contest!! Now I have aluminum foil wrapped on the Bose to deter them. Thank you again for these wonderful boys. If you are looking for a cat this is the place you should go it's like no other it's the best!!!
