Alumni News -Loki (Formerly Sprocket)

Loki 1

Feline Rescue thinks the best way for you to get a feel for the work of the organization and it’s many dedicated volunteers is by letting our adopters (and their cats!) tell their own success stories.

Today we hear from Dan, who adopted Loki (Formerly Sprocket) in the Summer of 2016

It’s been almost a year since we adopted Sprocket from you and after a few days, we renamed him Loki after the Norse god of mischief.  It seemed appropriate then – and is even more perfect now.
Loki 4
Loki is a very happy boy and loves to relax and play around the condo (including on our staircase, which is his own supersized kitty condo!).
Loki 2
Loki’s favorite toy is a feather flier that he “hunts”, perhaps reminiscent of his time in the wild near Owatonna before you rescued him.
Loki 3
Loki also is an ideal lap cat, always cuddling up on the coach or in bed with us.
Loki 1
Thank you for bringing this amazing cat into our lives!  We love him very much.
Dan

Alumni News -Adaline (Formerly Emma Jean)

Addy 2

Feline Rescue thinks the best way for you to get a feel for the work of the organization and it’s many dedicated volunteers is by letting our adopters (and their cats!) tell their own success stories.

Today we hear from Julia, who adopted Adaline (Formerly Emma Jean) in the Spring of 2017

Adaline, or Addy, for short, and I just celebrated her three month adoption anniversary.Addy 1 It’s also Adaline’s birthday this month!  She turns 15 years old this August.  Adaline (named after my grandma) is recently recovering from a dental procedure, with great hopes that she can now enjoy hard treats.  She is endlessly fascinated with the ethernet cord in our home (it’s part exciting and part a terrifying snake!)Addy (Ethernet) When not hunting the wild ethernet cord, she follows me around constantly waiting patiently for belly rubs and chin scratches.  Adaline and her 14-year-old little sibling, Skyler, mostly keep their distance from each other, except when the morning sunspots necessitate a close proximity.

Addy and SkylarAdaline  is simply the best!  Thank you, Feline Rescue, for taking care of her while she transitioned between her two families!

Keep up up your wonderful work, Julia

Thank You ASPCA®!

ASPCA_MadePossible_021-422-horiz

Thank you, the ASPCA® for grant support allowing Feline Rescue volunteers and staff to attend the Minnesota Animal Welfare Conference on May 25, in St. Cloud, MN.

16 volunteers and one staff member became better acquainted, mingled with other animal rescue organizations, and LEARNED a lot about many animal welfare and cat care topics! We have a great deal of new information from which we will continue to provide the best care for our cats and continue to improve operations.
