Feral Paws Fosters—Arthur O’Brien Jr.

by Paula Hunsaker

Fosters are so important to rescue groups. They open there homes up to moms and kittens, cats, and kittens in need for special care. When a rescue group is so blessed with a foster that is amazing, its can be a life saver to a rescue group. Rescue work isn’t a forever one. It’s not cake and ice cream. It can be so ugly at times too often then we in rescue want to see. But we must remain strong and fight for the life that is in danger. Our rescue group has been so blessed with an amazing foster for one of our moms and kittens that are doing amazing well and are in the best care every. Thanks to our foster Arthur O'Brien Jr.!

Jackie Dale The Cat Mother/Cat Trapper: Diary of a Crazy Cat Lady

by Jackie Dale

The past month has been a virtual whirlwind of cats and kittens. Almost every single day I receive a call or text regarding some cat-related issue. Around the middle of March, I took in two females: one adult and one about six months old. Both turned out to be pregnant. Just by looking at them, neither appeared to be pregnant, so I was surprised by the news.

Valley Animal Center Golf Fundraiser

by Mallory Moad

It’s all in the timing. That’s a well-worn phrase that could describe a variety of situations, including the way in which Valley Animal Center’s upcoming fundraiser/adoption event came to be. According to Alisia Sanchez, Marketing Manager for Fresno’s nonprofit no-kill shelter, it was a matter of the right people being in the right place at the right time.

Adopting Senior Rats: The Tale of Jerry & Stuart

by Stephanie Cameron

No animal can escape aging, and sadly, some enter their golden time far too quickly. Rats are one such animal and are considered a senior by the time they are two years old. Because a rat’s life span is so short, and being a long-time rat owner myself, I have come to greatly respect the indomitable spirit of those who chose rats as their companion animal. Having to say goodbye to your beloved pets every 2-3 years can be challenging. It takes a big heart to care for an animal you know you will have to say goodbye to over and over again.

Feral Paws: Wednesday Beautiful Black Kitty

by Paula Hunsaker

Wednesday was rescued from CCSPCA High Kill Shelter as a one-month-old kitten with a sibling. They both went into foster care with the vet tech at Care Vet Hospital in Fresno. It was going very well while in foster care. When they became four months old, I got a phone call from the vet tech that was fostering them. She told me that she wanted to keep one of the siblings. A foster failure! That happens so much when kittens are in foster care and the foster parent becomes so attached to the foster babies in their care.

Jackie Dale TheCatMother/Cat Trapper: Time Wasters, Hoarders, Hustle and Bustle

by Jackie Dale

It has been a very busy month. So busy, that when people waste my time, I get upset. Particularly when they are the ones who asked for help. This woman asked someone I know for help finding homes for kittens and a couple adults. I contacted the woman who took her time responding. Then when I asked for photos of her cats, they never arrived. I finally reached her by phone to make an appointment to see her cats. First, she tried to tell me which cats and (one) kitten she wanted me to take. I told her I needed to see the cats in person. We agreed on a Saturday at four o’clock. I also had two other owner-surrender cats to pick up that day so after picking up cat #1 at 3:30, I texted her to remind her she had not given me her address.

Fresno Bully Rescue: Malcolm

by Terese Shaw

What makes Malcolm so darn cute? If there were boxes to tick, he would check them all off! He is unbearably soft and squishy with adorable light brown eyes and a cute read nose. I do have to add that one of the cutest things about Malcolm, is his broad and infectious smile. A genuine smile, the kind that radiates happiness, especially when he has a tennis ball.

This cutiepie never misses an opportunity to hoot it up with her friends, explore any nook or cranny, and make it her mission to check out whatever happens to be going on.
