Feral Paws: Patty-Cake

by Paula Hunsaker


I received a call from a lady wanting to adopt a cat, and she explained it was to keep her sister’s seventeen-year-old cat company. She said that her sister had passed away and the cat is her only last link to her sister. While her sister was very ill, her cat was constantly at her side. But now her cat is grieving, and she felt that maybe another older cat will help with this sadness.??

This month I am going back in time seven years when my relationship with Feral Paws Rescue began, in February 2012. The first cat I got from the Rescue was a beautiful calico named Caleigh, and it went on from there. Each time Feral Paws Rescue would post on Facebook a black cat in need of saving from a kill-shelter, I inquired to see if they could pull him or her. In May 2012, one such post really got my attention.

Feral Paws Rescue: Three Lives Saved

Pumpkin is a beautiful, large, seven-year old orange and white cat who Feral Paws Rescue saved from the CCSPCA (Fresno) over two years ago. She had been surrendered to the CCSPCA after the death of her human owner. She was at the main rescue site for a while and acclimated to life there, when a call came from a senior citizen who was looking for a cat to share her small apartment.

Feral Paws Rescue: Mr. Mann

My name is Mr. Mann, and I am a handsome (if I may say so myself), large orange tabby. I am eight years old. Mom found me when I was a kitten, in a drain hole, on a rainy day. I was almost dead when she pulled me out. She rushed me to the vet and was so patient, because it took a while before I got better.

It was early 2013, and inside the shelter was a very scared white cat who was only one year old. He felt so abandoned and was so fearful, that he was pulling the fur out of his tail, yet he was very loving whenever humans paid attention to him. Feral Paws Rescue stepped in and saved him from certain death, as he wouldn’t be deemed adoptable with his self-destruction.

I have been volunteering at Feral Paws Rescue for a few years, and I have an area where cats are housed that I, personally, take care of. One day in mid-June of this year, I noticed a new addition to my area, a beautiful large chocolate-point Siamese.

Miguel was saved from the CCSPCA (Fresno) by Feral Paws Rescue on July 21, 2016, when he was six-months-old. He had been a very special kitten at the shelter as he had been saved from euthanasia by the Shelter Director and spent a month in the Director’s office where he was given a lot of love by the staff.

In early 2017, Feral Paws Rescue received a call from the CCSPCA (Fresno) asking if they would help with a cat who had a very bad injury that had caused tremendous swelling to his face. The shelter had already labeled this cat as “feral” since he didn’t want to have anything to do with the humans there.

It was late summer in 2017 when Feral Paws Rescue was asked to pull some cats and kittens from the CCSPCA in Fresno. They brought a mother and her two kittens back to the Rescue, along with others whose lives needed to be saved.

As those who know of Feral Paws Rescue are aware, the Rescue saves cats and kittens from high-kill shelters. This is the story of a different type of rescue, and definitely one that could have ended in tragedy.

It was the summer of 2012, and Paula of Feral Paws Rescue traveled to the Los Angeles County Shelter in Lancaster, CA to pick up cats who had to be pulled as their time was up at the shelter.
