You can’t buy love but you can adopt it!!!!!

February 2014   A gentle touch, a warm lap, a hug . Our previously abused or neglected cats have maybe never known any simple acts of kindness until they came here. They are unloved. The unwanted. And they are desperately waiting to be rescued.

Most of our cats were rescued from a high kill Quebec shelter, a shelter that takes in all unwanted cats. Unfortunately, because of the failing economy in that area, the shelter is overrun and due to this high volume, cats must be euthanized if they can’t be placed within several days of their capture or drop-off at the facility. The shelter partly relies on Bay Cat Hospital to save as many as we can. We cannot save more cats from this shelter until our current family gets placed. So please open your homes and hearts if you can.

Thank you all for your assistance in our endless rescue efforts in the past and thank you for spreading the word about these previously disposed of cats. We couldn’t have placed them without you.

Please look at some of  the 100’s of cats you  have recently helped us save by clicking on the link and please help us save more!

Miss Patchi Maude 9/14/17

MaudeMaude in shelter aPatchi aPatchi bPatchi cPatchi dThis beautiful girl who was abandoned by her owners in Quebec. They left her behind when they moved. No flood, no fire…just because they moved! She’s a senior cat who needs a gentle, quiet place to spend her time… It has taken a bit of time for her to start showing her personality, she was very sensitive to all the new sounds and surroundings here. She’s so sweet, she loves tummy rubs, and can be quite chatty. She’s happy to snuggle on your lap, give you nose kisses, and purr and purr. She’s a little chubby with short little legs and the cutest squishbean (declawed) paws you’ve ever seen. I think she would be happiest as an only pet, in a home that’s quiet and calm. If you know someone very special who might be a forever person for Maude. She is in Foster home right now as we are full up! “Patchi. Patchi has taken a few weeks to really relax and seem to feel comfortable. (no surprise i guess at 14 all these changes). She spent a lot of time under the bed 🙂  I began calling her Patchi again because she really responded better to it.  Patchi is a tiny kitty but she’s a little chubby…boy, does she like her food. She will come get me and talk and talk at her breakfast and dinner times. She doesn’t seem to mind dogs, but doesn’t really like Ziggy much. She startles easily, prefers quiet and calm environment. She does like to be held and cuddled, though not for too long…likes to be brushed and petted. She will give lots of kisses to your face. Loves tummy rubs, when you rub her chest between her front paws she shoots her legs straight up (see pic). She has a limp, seems to be front right shoulder, but i’m guessing. She is missing teeth, incl a front canine.  She’s a very sweet girl.”

Ziggy 9/13/17

ziggy IMG_7491ziggy IMG_7492ziggy MG_7493ziggy_IMG_7725This is Ziggy and is currently a foster baby in a loving heart’s home! He  was on the streets in Quebec for a while. Can you imagine – this regal, elegant boy on the streets? It’s a guess that he’s about 10, he’s still full of playfulness and curiosity. He doesn’t seem scared (but still not fond) of dogs or his roomie Maude, but personality wise he would love to be an only cat. He is SO affectionate and loving. He is happy is be with you all the time for snuggles and belly rubs. He will lie across my desk while I’m working, and if I don’t pet him he just rests his paw on my arm. Just so I know he’s there.
Ziggy is seriously one very special dude, full of personality and love. If you know someone very special who might be a forever person for Ziggy, please let me know. His adoption is through Bay Cat Hospital.

Ziggy is playful and curious and so, so, loving. He lies on my desk while i work, on my lap when i read. he loves love. he tries to play with Patchi, who get upset, so I think he’s ok with other cats. He does not like dogs. He isn’t afraid to be in the room with them but does not want interaction. He’s not timid. Soft & wet food, eats well. clean with his litter. He looks big but it’s all fluff. Loves to be brushed. He’s funny and wonderful.

Why I rescue

RESCUE EXPLAINED……
The neglect changes you.
The abuse hardens you.
The suffering breaks you. …
The ignorance angers you.
The indifference disturbs you.
The injustice destroys you.
On a daily basis…your faith will be tested.
Your heart will be wounded….
Your soul will be altered.
On a weekly basis…you’ll question yourself.
You’ll question your strength.
You’ll question the world.
On a monthly basis…you’ll fall down.
You’ll get up.
You’ll go on…
On a yearly basis…you’ll look back…
You’ll see faces…
You couldn’t save them.
You’ll learn to mourn.
To grieve.
To sob.
You’ll learn to trust a little less.
To do a little more.
To fight a little harder.
You’ll learn to try.
To hope.
To pray.
You’ll learn to fail.
To succeed.
To accept.
You’ll learn when to hold on.
When to give up.
When to let go.
You’ll learn who you are.
What you stand for.
Why that matters.
Then… at times… you’ll forget why you matter.
You’ll question what you’re doing.
You’ll wonder if it’s worth it.
But…here’s the good news… When you forget…
When you question…
When you wonder…
All you have to do…
Is take a look around…
And you’ll see them.
You’ll see their faces.
You’ll see their smiles.
You’ll feel their love.
In their eyes, you’ll see their journeys…
You’ll remember their beginnings…
You’ll know how far they’ve come…
You’ll remember when they didn’t know you…
When they didn’t trust you…
When they’d given up.
You’ll remember how you healed them…
How you loved them…
How they loved you, too.
And as you look back…
You’ll want to move forward…
For them… and because of them.
In your darkest hours, you’ll look around…
To find the differences made…the hope given…
and the lives saved…
Because you existed.
In those moments, when you look into their eyes…
Every doubt will be erased.
Every question will be answered.
Every worry will subside.
Because in that instant…in each of your hearts…
You both share the very same thought: “Every bit of pain was worth it…for this moment here with you.”
And honestly…no matter what else happens…
Those moments hold all the strength you need…
To keep going.
Rescue is pain.
Rescue is joy.
Rescue is worth it…because they are worth it.
And that’s the honest truth.
