We are rescuing stray Brooklyn kittens and their moms, bringing them to health and finding them great forever homes. We need funds to provide vet care and medication as the $$ is adding up FAST so we need financial help.

We are 1 day from the the end of our fundraiser but not done with the work ahead... THIS IS TOM-Cat :) .. .he might be one of the potential fathers of the kittens we found homes for. He was captured and will no longer be able to spread his genes to new generations as I got him fixed, vaccinated and microchipped to make sure he is safe from euthonasia incase someone traps him and takes him to a shelter.. HOWEVER we still have a number of other cats roaming that also need to get fixed .. with my new TNR certificate we get big discounts but it all still adds up... if you would like to help me continue this work please donate as soon as you can before this fundraiser expires... only 1 day left. THANK YOU!!!

DEAR ANIMAL LOVERS.....

I have yet to go out and look for an animal...  they always seem to find me. Over the years I must have rescued at least 2 dozen cats and dogs and this year kittens are flocking my way out of now where. Just this Summer we rescued 4 tiny kittens that were left in the middle of a scorching parking lot cuddled together in Coney Island ( Photo included)...all 4 are now in their new happy forever homes... but now we are faced with an even bigger challenge. A cat moved in with her 4 kittens into our friend's boat shop through an open window when temperatures dropped below the freezing point. Thankfully he loves them and he set up a heat lamp for them as there is no heat... and is feeding them, but they can not stay there. With help we were lucky to have found homes for two of the marina kittens already, after seeing the vet and getting medicated...and socialized. They have been unbelievably sweet kittens and I almost didn't want to give them up but then I would not be able to rescue the others.... so the work continues. 

NOW we have 2 kittens left to trap and their mom to make sure we can get her fixed.... AND THEN, another pregnant cat has been showing up at the marina at our freind's office/boat shop. After this little family is taken care of we hope we can get to the pregnant cat too... trap everyone and make sure everyone is taken care of and finds good forever homes. The moms might end up getting released in the marina again as they might be feral but that is yet to be determined.... if we can get them fixed, we will not have to worry about any more kittens... but VET Care is expensive and it all adds up very fast. 

I will be getting certified in TNR ( Trap and Release) which is a program that helps with feral outdoor cats. It will provide me with vet discounts and some help but that will not be enough.

Rescues are always filled up with no space and funds are always short so we have to do our part vs asking others to take on this challenge... so here we are. I am doing all I can but with Covid pretty much killing my business/job my funds are limited at this time...what I do have is time to help with this situation ...with that said I am hoping anyone who is still employed and wants to earn some good Karma points for 2021 will donate to keep this going... 

WE HAVE SOME CUTE KITTENS TO SAVE! 

THANK YOU IN ADVANCE!!!

SO EXCITING !!!..... but the work is not done... we now have 8 feral cats to fix before they have any more kittens .....If you can donate and OR share with your friends to help with this process as funds are limited, and I can only keep doing this work if donations keep coming, since Covid killed my business.. .your $ 100% will be going to this cause / rescue.

Update #6

I am so excited to announce that we found a home for little Louisa the 2nd. She will be going to a home where I will be able to visit her and make sure she is well taken care of... although her new mom will be a perfect fit for her. She spent a day with her on Sunday and made her rice bouches that are easily wormed up incase she wants a warmer place to cuddle into... I have never seen that before... but what a great idea :)

We will be going back to the Brooklyn Marina on Wed if we can to pick up the final kitten from this litter and then we need to get the mom to get her healthy and fixed... and then, onto the pregnant cat that is around if we can get her inside... so much work ahead of us. THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR SUPPORT ! There is no way i would be able to do this without the extra $$. THANK YOU!! More updates will be coming soon :)

We are making progress....she has gone from trying to climb the walls to sitting on my lap and not trying to run..... it took a couple of hrs today but we are making progress. Looks like there will be a lot of TV watching with the kitten to get her socialized and to gain her trust that she can be next to a human .... more to come !

Update #1

Tonight we picked up the 3rd of the 4 kittens at the Brooklyn Marina. This one showed of some serious acrobatic skills in the bathroom. Super scared so will be work in progress... but she or he will come around... just needs extra attention. If you can donate to help us cover the vet costs for this kitten it would be very much appreciated. THANK YOU!!
