"Oh My Dog!" Kitten rescue update

Hiya everyone!
Yes, it is, once again, the dreaded Monday, but I will do my best to bring a smile to the start of your week.

You may remember 2 weeks ago, on one of my "OMD" posts, We had to rescue a little kitten that was outside of my house. This little kitten was being attacked by a couple of large male strays, and was not in a good situation. To see the whole rescue visit my previous post HERE.
In short, we were able to save the kitty, and after some determined escaping of kitty no name, we got him inside.



So I know a lot of you were thinking, and maybe even hoping that our "kitty no name" may have found a new home here with us. Unfortunately, keeping kitty was just not feasible for us.
With 3 cats and 3 huskies, our pack is all full. BUT, that doesn't mean I was not going to find kitty no name a safe place to go. Originally, I tried to get him into our local "no kill" shelter, however, being so packed full of animals, they could not help. I then did some research on a few cat rescues nearest my location, and found one I thought best for kitty. I asked my local shelter if they had heard of them, and asked a few questions, plus, I spoke with a lady from the cat rescue, and asked questions I thought relative to the situation. She answered everything wonderfully, and I was confident that kitty would be well taken care of with them.

They were coming out right away to pick kitty up, so I thought I would go in and have a few moments with my little rescue kitty. I also had to get him back into the cat carrier to prepare for his pick up.
He was still very scared, and didn't want much to do with human interaction, and it was very obvious to me that this kitty had never had a home to begin with.


I wrapped him in a towel, so that I could protect myself, and I cuddled him for a moment to calm him down. After a few moments, he calmed down, and allowed me to pet his head, and scratch under his chin.



This was probably the biggest mistake I could have made, because I was beginning to get upset that I couldn't be the one to provide him with a forever home.
I talked to him, and assured him that he would be safe where he was going.
I also let him know, that if he ever got lost again, he can find his way to my house, and I will gladly take him in and feed him once again.


I was heart broken when the lady came and took him away, but I am glad to share with you, that I have since been in contact with the rescue a few times, and he is getting the attention he deserves, and the vet care as well. He will be up on their adoption list as soon as they feel he is ready to find a home.

I feel good knowing this is one kitty whose life was saved, and is now off the street. I look forward to seeing his little face up on the adoption page, and I hope and pray he finds some great humans to love him.

Thank you all for following our kitten rescue story, and when he is up for adoption, I will be sharing him once again, and do my best to help him find a home. For those of you who are interested in checking out the cat rescue where kitty no name is currently located, feel free to check them out HERE.
They are located in Ontario, Ottawa.

I hope everyone had a great weekend!
See you tomorrow :)

    1. Oh I know!
      They sure do, and no need to thank me, I have heard some nasty things about rescues who aren't truly rescues, so I did my best to check it out :)

  7. Mom totally understands that. We could never provide a temporary home as the pet would end up staying with us forever. That is wonderful that you helped the little one out and he will soon find a forever home.

    1. I know! And thats what happened with one of our kitties. We found our kitten Loco just this past winter, and she was freezing and scared, and we took her i n and tried everything to figure out where she belonged, but no luck. SO we kept her! We couldn't do it again though, no matter how much I wished we could. :(

  8. You did great to find Kitty no name a safe place to go. I know it is so easy to get attached quickly, but you have to think of your current pets too, and do what's best for everyone, and iut sounds like that's just what you did. I'm sure one day you'll be posting on here that he found a happy home! I'm glad he's in a place where you can keep track of him too, so you'll know.

  13. You did the perfect thing by rescuing Kitty-No-Name and finding a great shelter for him to stay until he gets a forever family. Three dogs and three cats plus kids is plenty for you to take care of. I know it's always hard to say good-bye but without your intervention, he had no chance at all. You did good, Jenna! ♥♥

      It was hard to say goodbye, but as you said, I have a full house to take of as it is, and that's the best I can do. I hope he finds his home soon, and a good one!!!

  14. How pawsome that you rescued the little kitty. You were smart to check out the rescue to make sure they weren’t hoarders. What a cutie he is. Maybe when he gets posted, you could give the link so we can share it.
