Metro Cat Rescue needs your help so that we can continue to help cats left to die in the streets.   We are DROWNING in bills for food, medical costs and supplies.   Donate at our GoFundMe Page or click on this Link for the Amazon Wish List. Please DO contribute so that Metro Cat Rescue has the resources to be there to save abandoned kittens and cats.

Anthony Olszewski and friends have been saving kittens and cats for for many years. We intervene where a cat is about to die — like those abandoned to the cruel horrors of the street by heartless owners. We also care for kittens that shelters routinely kill for being “too much trouble” — like Little Blake with ringworm shown here. The Metro Cat Rescue Facebook Page shows just some of the many more cats and kittens that we rescued in only the last few years.

We recently began operating under the name Metro Cat Rescue and hope soon to establish a formal organization. All volunteer — receiving neither grants nor tax payer dollars — it’s only with community support that Metro Cat Rescue can save kittens and cats in need.

Our dream is to establish a facility to provide care for homeless kittens and cats with easily treated but contagious conditions — those innocents that now elsewhere regularly are made to die. Sadly, a lack of funds has kept Metro Cat Rescue’s goal on a distant horizon. Without the necessary resources, each day there are cats that we can’t help. Indeed, last summer, there was a dip in donations and adoptions. I would not let the cats go hungry, so I scraped by eating little more than bread, rice and beans myself.

Little Blake the Ouija Cat, is just one of our success stories.  On August 20, 2012.  she was rescued after being abandoned on Central Ave. near the post office.  Too weak to stand, the very young kitten was covered with fleas. She also had an eye infection, ear mites, ringworm and intestinal parasites.

Luckily, the tyke was small enough and the day was warm enough so that her entire body could be dipped in the bathroom sink. The fleas still on the head were carefully removed with a fine comb. And that was the easy part! The other conditions required considerable care and the application of medication.

Strength and confidence growing, Blake here had commandeered the recycling bin as her abode.

Just six months later, Blake has become a regal lady, as she still is today.

Little Blake is only one of the many cats that are happy and healthy today because of Metro Cat Rescue’s quick action.

Please do support Metro Cat Rescue! All too often I’ve had to spend my own grocery money to make sure that the cats are well fed. If Metro Cat Rescue had the resources for more space and basic equipment, there’s so much more that we could do. The donation of a used SUV or van would mean so much. With dependable transportation, we’d be able to save so many more kittens and cats.

It’s secure, quick and convenient to use the DONATE button at GoFundMe. If everyone reading this gave SOMETHING, we’d be well on the way to providing for suffering cats left to fend for themselves. There’s no such thing as a contribution that’s too small. Every bit — little or large — means a lot and makes a BIG difference!

It would be particularly wonderful if you chose to sustain the mission of Metro Cat Rescue by establishing a monthly donation through our PayPal account. The address to use is MetroCatRescue@gmail.com. Any amount will be a huge help. Unfortunately, right now we have no idea what our funding will be next month — or even next week. Helping to make it possible for Metro Cat Rescue to plan for the future will mean so many more kittens and cats will be saved.

THANK YOU!

Beautiful mom cat Spumoni with two of her sons. Spumoni was a feral cat. A Metro Cat Rescue volunteer saved her so that the kittens would be born inside.

Metro Cat Rescue brings inside mother cats living in the streets so their kittens can grow happy and healthy and hope for good homes. When the babies are on their own, Metro Cat Rescue provides a warm and safe place for the moms and continues to care for them. Here's the Link to help Metro Cat Rescue help kittens and cats in need:

Many hours are spent each day feeding, washing bowls, providing worm medicine and laundering the cats' beds. So that Metro Cat Rescue can do more, we need your help! We've run out of space to take in any additional cats. And there's the time -- with the kittens and moms that we have here now, the day starts at 6am and ends at 11pm.

Trying to fit more hours in the day by adding extra effort, I quite literally collapsed from exhaustion. For three days after that, I could only be up for 15 minutes or so and then had to lie down to recover some strength.

Metro Cat Rescue needs a bigger and better space. We also need the funds to hire someone -- at least -- part time to help with the chores. Hours are spent cleaning bowls and dishes. Having an automatic dishwasher would make a world of difference. A lot less time would go towards drudgery that then could be used caring for the cats.

Metro Cat Rescue has no cushion of dedicated funds for medical care. As it stands now, for each and every vet visit -- standard checkups and neutering, too, not just emergencies -- has to be paid for by pleading for help on Facebook. This sometimes means that a sick cat suffers for days waiting for medical attention.

There were quite a few empty houses -- most likely foreclosures -- in the area. A Metro Cat Rescue volunteer installed shelters and feeding stations in accessible areas of these properties. Many of these structures have been demolished to make way for new homes. That's good for the neighborhood economy, but bad for the cats who depend on a hearty breakfast for survival. Each and every morning -- no matter the weather -- the Metro Cat Rescue volunteer goes to the construction sites to put out food and water. On a second round an hour or so later, the trays and dishes are picked back up. This way, there's no litter. Also, people, possibly ill-willed, are not alerted to the cats.

Well I'm the sheik of Araby
Your love belongs to me
Well at night when you're asleep
Into your tent I'll creep
The stars that shine above
Will light our way to love
You'll rule this world with me
I'm the sheik of Araby

One of my teeth recently became infected. Until I could get to a dentist, I had to sip ice water every few minutes to relieve the pain. Through that -- except for one day when at 9pm I was no longer able to continue -- the schedule kept going from 6am to 11pm. Every cat was fed. Every litter box was cleaned. All the towels that are used for beds were changed and laundered. I did fall a day behind in the dish washing -- both the cats’ and my own.

Seeing the happy and healthy little crew, I do think that it's all worth it.
