Cat By the Tracks: Smudge & Kittens

Jeremy is coordinator for Cats By The Tracks, a California cat rescue. This is the first column from them about what they do and their rescued cats. You can learn more about their rescue in our recent article about them.

Meet Smudge! This sweet adult cat was unfortunately surrendered to our veterinarian in Santa Cruz. Of course, we said yes to putting her in our foster system and finding her a loving home. Her official owner had passed away, and the husband surrendered Smudge because it made him think of his wife who had passed away. Smudge has been in our foster system for about a month, and has been doing great. She has really adapted and is a great cat. We have been looking for a home for Smudge for quite some time, and are happy to announce she has found her forever home! She will be making the trip back up to Fresno on Tuesday where she will be adopted by a loving family. Stories like these are why we continue rescuing everyday.


These four kittens were rescued from Oakland Animal Services about a month ago, and had ringworm. Cats By The Tracks took them in, provided medication, and placed them in a loving foster home to heal. They have been on medicine for quite some time now, but are finally healthy and ready for furever homes! They are all being fixed, vaccinated, and microchipped this Wednesday.

  1. I am sharing the rescues appeal for funds and food. It is so important people know these organisations are out there saving lives every single day.
