The Little Cats' Rescue is a small, all volunteer non-profit that has been rescuing, rehabilitating and rehoming cats in need for 12 years. During that time, we've rehomed 1,021 cats! (and done TNVR on hundreds) Our sanctuary houses 50 cats, ranging in age 4 months - 13 years old. Some were taken from "death row" - some from the streets - some dropped on our doorstep. Many have "issues" that prevent adoption - but they will NOT be destroyed because of them. We've been systematically addressing their veterinary needs with the help of generous cat lovers. Right now, our most serious situation is:

MUFASA is only four years old and simply one of the most loving, gentle and intelligent kitties I know. MUFASA's life-saving surgery is scheduled for Thursday, 9/18. He'll have a full-mouth extraction to cure his severe periodontal disease. Then we can successfully manage the syndrome that causes him to have seizure-like episodes, when he becomes violent to himself and others. During these episodes, he viciously attacks his tail, while screaming and growling. Mufasa wants to live, and he deserves to live happily and pain free. We are so grateful to you who have contributed to his vet bill, which will be approx. $700. If there are any funds left over from your donations, we will pay down the remainder of the bill for Abby, Chewie, Texas and Sherrie, which totals $861. Then we will have a clean slate for upcoming veterinary needs. Please help us keep our rescued cats healthy. Our cats range in age from 4 months - 13 years old. As they age, their veterinary needs increase. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, with purrs and sandpaper kisses, for your support. It takes a village - thank you for being a part of ours. To donate,You can use PayPal (on the side of this page) or mail to: TLCR, 4229 Abaco Court, New Port Richey, FL 34653, or give directly to Animal Care Center of Pasco. (please let us know if you give to the vet so we can give you a receipt)

Update on Chewie!

He is doing extremely well!  Chewie eats Natural Balance canned and dry food now, and hasn't had a problem in over a month. He is slowly (the best way) putting on weight. Chewie is really blossoming into a wonderful cat!  The remaining vet balance for Chewie is $225. We would be so grateful if you would help us pay this down, so other cats can have their turn!  
Upon his return in April.  Chewie was emaciated, unable to hold down his food, and in a lot of pain.  He wanted nothing to do with anyone - feline, canine, or human. 
Today I caught Chewie napping on his favorite blankie!  He has blossomed into a cat and dog-friendly, loving lap cat, who is VERY talkative!  His favorite word:   "Hello?"  Over and over again! Chewie is so smart!  When he cannot find RaeAnna - she hears his "hello" and says, "Here I am!" He always finds his foster mom and leads her to his private feeding room for his special food, or sits next to her when he wants some loving as they watch the ballgame!
