Yes. There are angels among us.
"In July 2013, I moved into a duplex apartment at the border of Brooklyn and Queens. The plan was to sublet half of my apartment out to stray cats. Not only would they get to stay here as long as they need, but I would try to help them find permanent homes through the power of social media and occasional cat videos. This is a blog about my adventures in fostering, and the struggles of trying to make a living out of something that’s never really existed. Oh yeah, and I’m allergic to cats.”
We’re in the running to win 50k and ZipCar credit—this would be HUGE for us. The number of lives we could save is unimaginable. For all those who can’t foster or volunteer, this is a very easy way to help us!

Like listen: I know it’s a pain in the ass to click and click and find it and click again (I’m serious) but this could make SUCH a huge difference, so please just do it.
When we find cats like Jonesy Bones and pluck them off the street because they’re sick, starved, and dying, Kathryn Willis—our director—never says no. We need the funds to be able to continue to pull cats off the kill list at ACC as well as random, tragic cases like Jones or Donatella (pictured in main post), both of whom I fostered/am fostering.
"One stormy night my girlfriend saw what we thought was a dead sparrow below our balcony. he was barely breathing, covered in ants and completely blind.
We brought him home and put him in a box. after spending a night in our bedroom, he woke us up with high pitched tweeting. we tried feeding him, but without any luck, so we placed him on our balcony. he continued tweeting non stop for three hours.
Finally, his father found him and started feeding him. he brought his chick huge bugs and bread every 10-15 minutes all day long for two weeks straight.
He was getting bigger every day, but he was still blind. i called a vet, and he told me to try simple eye drops. it worked like a charm! he even started hiding from us behind our flowers. soon, his father started showing him how to fly trough the window.
One day he just left – we knew this day would come eventually. we became really worried because that same night, and for the next few days, there was really stormy weather. however, three days later, he came back and fell asleep in one of our pots.”
Even after Elvira the Itty Bitty kitty has found her forever loving home, she never forgets the person that rescued her and nursed her back to health.
“Found her and her brothers literally under cow poop in an old barn. She nearly died a handful of times. I took care of her for about a month and found her a home with a very lonely friend of mine. I drop off food once a month for her,” she wrote.
Every time she visits Elvira. The kitty knows and jumps on her to give her kisses and a lot of play time.
“She is fully grown and slightly fluffy. I walked in, she pounced on me, then gave me kisses. She also likes to suck on fingers, lips, necks and hands-cat sweater planned for the reunion.”
Here’s a typical visit where Elvira welcomes her with kisses then play.
A firefighter who rescued a cat from a well in west Coweta on June 29 stepped up to rescue the cat a second time on Tuesday. The cat, which was taken into the custody of Coweta County Animal Control following its rescue a month ago, was scheduled to be euthanized Wednesday morning. No one claimed the furry feline, which suffered from fleas, and it was not apparent whether it was wild or domesticated.
The Coweta County firefighter who descended 40 feet into a well at 866 Welcome to Arnco Road to rescue the cat on June 29 decided “for it to die tomorrow would be a waste of what we did.” Coweta firefighter Jim Cadenhead went to the shelter on Selt Road at lunch Tuesday to retrieve Wellie the cat. He was notified of the cat’s pending demise from a shelter rescue group who urged him to take action. But, long before strangers urged him to save Wellie, his two daughters, ages 10 and 11, had pleaded on the cat’s behalf. “They wanted me to get the cat when I rescued him,” said Cadenhead. “They’ve been begging for the cat. When I told one of my daughters about what was going to happen, she told me, ‘Daddy, go get that cat.’ “A group of guys at the fire department had some time and effort in getting this cat out of that hole,” he continued. “We did a big thing and had a positive outcome. This was quickly going from a positive to a negative. It made it worthwhile to go get the cat.” For now, the cat will reside with Cadenhead. However, its future residence remains uncertain because the firefighter already has two large hound dogs that “don’t like cats.” “I might give the cat to my mom — at least that way my daughters can still see the cat.”
James saw a Facebook post about some deer stuck out on the ice in the middle of Albert Lea Lake, so he called up his dad and they broke out the hovercraft. It’s a father son rescue mission unlike anything you’ve ever seen.
"If you’re planning to add a pet to your family, please consider an older rescue cat. Older cats have many virtues: They’re calmer, more socialized, and more experienced dealing with other pets and people (generally).
Shelters and rescue agency have a hard time placing older cats. It’s hard to compete with an adorable kitten when it comes to being adopted.”
