Never a quiet weekend when you are in rescue! This tiny baby and her brother have severe upper respiratory infections. Brother's picture is too graphic to post ={ His eyes are red and swollen to the point of protrusion and he has been rushed to the emergency room just moments ago but we fear it may be too late.
Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers.

Community Cat Coalition

Single Kittens – to adopt or not?Time and again rescuers are overwhelmed with so many kittens to place, and people who don’t do rescue are frustrated “I want a kitten, but I don’t want 2 – why won’t you adopt to me?” There is no absolute here – some rescuers will adopt out single kittens; many shelters will, but most will prefer there is a companion animal in the home. Why is this? Simply because kittens go through intense socialization during their first months of life, and when you remove a kitten from contact with other kittens or cats, you take away much of her “norms”. It is through the socialization process kittens learn how to be cats – the playing, the cuddling, the grooming, the mock battles all are part of learning how to be a well-adjusted kitten. Take one baby and put in your house, go to work and leave him locked up alone all day, come home tired and ready to relax – and what do you do when a little monster attacks your feet and hands, who is constantly in your face, who bites you if you don’t keep up the play, or who perhaps is destroying your house while you are gone? This isn’t to say all cats need to have another cat companion – the shelters are full of cats who only want to be an only cat. Unfortunately, many of them were only kittens, and never learned the proper social skills, and once they were not cute babies the biting and other behaviors were not tolerated. Sometimes you have a cat who never did like other cats or kittens- just like humans, they each have unique personalities, and some just are loners! But how much better for those who want only one cat to adopt a cat who is known to want to be an only, than to deprive a kitten of a normal socialization and create a problem kitty? And again, no, we are not saying ALL single kittens are problem kittens – but enough are that independent rescuers work hard to avoid it. THAT is why they insist on at least having another cat in the home when you adopt.The floodgates are open, the kittens have begun pouring out – and when YOU go to adopt a kitten this year, don’t do it – adopt TWO instead! You’ll have twice the fun, you’ll have happier cats, and you will have helped save TWO lives instead of just one :)

Coco can't believe it either! We were exhausted after spending the day at the #OmahaGives Viewing Party so after feeding the crew a cat nap was in order. We woke up to find that 67 of you have donated today!! 67!! YEA! This is GREAT! As you all know we give everything to our rescues and often we go without to do so. Knowing you support us is a feeling that can't be described.
Thank you all so very much!

This event will close down at midnight tonight. We are only about 20-30 individual donors down from making the top 5 to earn an additional $1-3,000 in prize money. So, please help us spread the word!
