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.

Willow, a pretty seal point Siamese cat, was dumped in the overnight drop off box at a county shelter. At only three or four-years-old, she was apparently no longer wanted by her family.

On April 20, 2016, Paula of Feral Paws Rescue made yet another trip to the CCSPCA shelter in Fresno to pick up kittens and cats, and as usual, she left there with her truck filled with cat carriers.

Congratulations to Lynea and The Cat House on the Kings on their 26th anniversary! Twenty-six years of saving both canine and feline lives is an amazing life accomplishment. Many thanks to everyone who has and continues to support The Cat House because without you, we would not exist.

As the end of the year approaches, there is still time to make a tax-deductible donation to The Cat House on the Kings. This has been a crazy year (meaning expensive) for The Cat House. The storms, the floods, trees crashing down, and fences destroyed. We had numerous cats dumped on our doorstep, cats rescued from cars, kittens rescued from dumpsters, cats/kittens attacked by dogs, hit by cars, abandoned in alleys.

Whenever one plans an open air event, the biggest concern is always the weather. There was much concern and trepidation, as the weather people were forecasting rain for Saturday, November 4, and quite a bit of rain, too. There must have been a whole lot of praying and hoping going on because the weather was beyond perfect. No rain, not too hot and not too cold.

The Open House is next weekend and the excitement is building. We are, however, a bit short on volunteers for setting up, breaking down, and lots of stuff in between. Please consider donating the gift of time. There are two shifts available to choose from for the 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. event. We all know that many hands makes light work so please shoot Tammy Barker an email right now. In the subject line write “I Want to Volunteer.” Email: tammy@cathouseonthekings[dot]com

So, I have returned from my two month summer hiatus. I generally only take the one month, with Harvie graciously filling in for me. However, this year brought many circumstances that were unyielding and very demanding. Well, of course, the onslaught of kittens was non-stop. Then in mid-July, I blew out my knee while simultaneously pulling the hamstring in my other leg. I suffered a torn ACL, a torn meniscus, and a fractured knee cap. Understandably, I was in a lot of pain and not too mobile. Fortunately my daughter was able to step in and help out with the kittens.
