Hi everyone, Katie here.

We want to introduce you to some VERY special kitties today.

Glogirly and her friend Angie Bailey (of the hilarious blog, Catladyland) recently visited the kitties of Feline Rescue Inc. in Saint Paul, Minnesota to share some exciting news. When we both were presented with BlogPaws Nose-to-Nose Awards in May, we received something MUCH better than trophies or treats. We each received 400 pounds of Petcurean cat food to donate to the rescue shelter of our choice.

Angie's hoping to be invited inside orange boy Black Foot's hidey hole. Since we visited he's been adopted!
Louie is loving Angie's arms.  Read Louie's story HERE.

Angie and Glogirly wanted to do something EXTRA special for one of their favorite hometown shelters. So they decided to combine their donations and give Feline Rescue 800 pounds of food. I did the math and that's about as much food as both Waffles and I would eat in TEN years! ...and we all know what a food hog Waffles is. 

Feline Rescue is one of the little guys making a BIG difference in the lives of homeless cats. They're an ALL-volunteer, NO-kill cat rescue organization with shelter, foster and outreach programs. 
Glogirly can't help herself with the orange sweetheart, Kanga. Read Kanga's story HERE.
Bella Donna just might be ready for a little mani-pedi! Read Bella Donna's story HERE.

Their shelter facility can house up to 70 cats. They have special rooms for FEL+ and FIV+ cats, quiet spots, even dedicated areas that provide privacy for cats that are very scared and are in need of socialization rehabilitation. Glogirly saw first hand how much time and care they take to help these cats feel comfortable and safe. They work one-on-one with them until they are ready for adoption.

All of the cats in the shelter facility are adults. A network of foster homes provide care for the kittens until they are adopted into forever homes.

Rufio and Tux T have a cozy hangout built for two.
In addition to safe shelter, Feline Rescue also provides rescue and relief to the homeless and endangered cats in our community through programs that offer foster care, social and medical rehabilitation, feral and stray management, spay/neuter subsidy and community education.

Main Coone Ray Charles LOVES his neck scritches. Meanwhile Louie cued up in line, waiting his turn.
Feline Rescue's amazing volunteers are patient, kind and so compassionate. Their hearts burst with love for these beautiful animals.  How could we NOT want to reach out and help?

  2. Oh good luck! We keep trying to vote every day but sometimes forget!

  3. Isn't visiting shelters and kitties is the best feeling in the world. When I'm feeling blah, I go outside and sit in gravel, humidity, get eaten by ants but I don't notice because the neighborhood cats come running to me and make me feel on top of the world.

  4. Thank you Glogirly and Angie for your generous giving. Thanks Gloman for the pawesome photos. And thanks Waffles for not eating all the food before they could get it to the shelter!

  6. What a wonderful post.
    You know we vote everyday!

  7. What a beautiful place with such awesome kitties!
    We think maybe Glogirly could take a little waffles3 home for fostering, so the orange teenage boy could have a playmate and not touch Katie so much :) What you think Katie?! :)

  8. What a special and heart-warming post! It is fantastic that you doubled-up your donation to help this wonderful shelter. Fabulous pictures. (Psst Katie, I did manage to save some KFC for you darling and thanks for stopping by to celebrate my Birthday with me, how great to see you!)
