Feral Paws Rescue: 4 Cats & 2 Dogs Find Rescue

by Paula Hunsaker


Our rescue over the years has seen and been through so much that is heartbreaking and joyful at times. But there are times when you have to stop and question the human race. I have learned over time that there is a huge difference between the mind of the public and the work of rescue. I have found over time that there are some very heartless humans. We get so attached to our rescue pets and some even become forever pets with the rescue.

by Lupe Gore


This month we’re featuring a beautiful young lady cat pulled from the CCSPCA (Fresno) by Feral Paws Rescue.
I will introduce you to Pepper. She is four years old, with a beautiful black and brown swirl tabby coat and little white mittens on her feet. She was an owner surrender to the shelter after being with her previous humans since she was five weeks old, apparently after being advertised as a free kitten on a web site.

Jackie Dale-CatMother/Cat Trapper: Keeping Cats Alive & TNR in Brutal Heat/A Flurry of Tinys

by Jackie Dale



In terms of heat, the past month has been exceptionally brutally here in the Central Valley. When the temperatures started climbing up to as high as 114°, it became an issue for my cats in outside cages. I had to make room inside for as many of the cats as I could. At the hottest part of several days, I put four of the cats each in a carrier and lined them up on my couch. At least they stayed cool during the extreme heat of the afternoon. I kept up this routine of musical cats for several weeks. The outside feral cats would lounge in the bushes where we would water everything down for them to keep it cool as possible.

Jackie Dale-TheCatMother/Cat Trapper: A Trickle of Kittens/Unwanted Donation/Good News

by Jackie Dale



I keep a log book of sorts in order to keep track of incoming cat and kittens, my TNR projects, etc. This month’s page is uncharacteristically blank. The relentless triple-digit heat and being full to capacity continue to bring things to a standstill. I had to say “No” to a lot of people. “Sorry, there is no room at The CatMother’s Inn.” But truth be told, there is always a bit of room for the tiny little muffins that come my way.

Jackie Dale—TheCatMother/Cat Trapper: Slow Motion Summer/Relentless Heat/A Couple of Rescues

by Jackie Dale



It has been a long month that seems to be passing in slow motion. Rescues are still full and not accepting cats or kittens due largely in part to the record number of owner surrenders. Lots of people adopted pets during the pandemic, but with life returning to normal, shortsightedness reveals itself. Such shallow thinking that one would adopt a pet without the intention of keeping it for life. Pets should never be a whim. Or a temporary distraction.
