Happy! Two Cats Saved This Week!

Lucky Diamond kitty is now in a no-kill shelter in Texas after she almost lost her chance at a future because she was biting. Latest report is that she's calm and happy at her new location, and is enjoying being petted and adored. Once we can be sure she's learned to trust and not bite, she'll be available for new owners. If she does not get adopted there, she will come to Nebraska. We've worked with scared kitties before.

The second kitty is Freckles, a sweet tortoiseshell rescued from a high kill shelter in Kansas. She made it out in time, but transports can be tricky, and she ended up laying over at a foster home a lot longer than planned. Finally, after about 4 months, she's here! And she is settling in fairly quickly. She's a little nervous now and not too sure about the other cats, but she's showing signs of taking over soon!

Our Next Emergency! Give Diamond a Chance, Too!

Little Diamond is still a kitten, but she is on the short list and will be put down very soon if we can't find a safe place for her. We don't know her history, but she must be very frightened. She has been deemed unadoptable because she bites. But she has not had the luxury of a loving relationship with humans who are willing to socialize her. So, she becomes scared when someone gets too close; and if they don't honor her warnings to give her a little space, she bites.

We feel that her young age is in her favor, because there is still time to help her learn that not everyone is out to get her. In other words, she still has the potential to become a great pet. We want to provide that chance. She needs either a ride to Nebraska where she will be given some loving assistance and training, or to be moved into a no-kill shelter in the Fort Worth, Texas area.

Please contact us if you have any suggestions:

Tweeter is Safe! But she still needs a ride...

Thanks to a lot of hard-working rescuers with big hearts, Tweeter was moved out of a potential danger zone into safety. She is now in foster care, which gives us a bit of breathing room to continue the search for a ride to her new home in Nebraska.

Please don't give up now. We're getting close!
