What Would You Do to Save a Kitten?

Posted on Thursday, July 2nd

What Would You Do to Save a Kitten? Last Thursday, we received a call from a volunteer who feeds a feral cat colony. A kitten had fallen 18 feet down into a storm drain, and had been there for DAYS! Local emergency services responded, but could not get down far enough to save the kitten, who was crying constantly, and in grave danger whenever it rained, as water flooded the storm drain. Somehow, she managed to stay on a small ledge. Can you imagine?? Her will to survive is amazing! Thankfully, our volunteer and her family managed to lower food and water down to the kitten regularly, but it… READ MORE >

Nitro Takes a Deep Breath - Volume! We love to share the amazing transformations of the animals we rescue, but sometimes the difference between "before" and "after" rescue isn't something you can see. When little Nitro came to us, she had a terrible upper respiratory infection. Just listen to her struggle to breathe in this video - and then listen to how far she has come! Not only has Nitro been ill, but her siblings also are recovering from intestinal woes.

Posted on Monday, July 29th

Is a Study Buddy on Your Back-to-School List? School is almost here!! Back-to-School time can often trigger worries that our kids might not buckle down and do their schoolwork. After a summer of fun, sitting down to seriously hit the books may not be that high on their list, right? Finding a way to positively and effectively reinforce studying is a challenge, as all parents know. At Furkids, we know that kids respond enthusiastically and look forward to reading with cats as part of our FurTales program. Of course, parents love it to. We have learned that having a cat or dog nearby can help distracted kids slow down and focus on reading and schoolwork.… READ MORE >
