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!

Ah! Memorial Day weekend and the start of the good ol' summer time -- unless you're an abandoned cat. Back in the fall, people brought in a kitten to keep themselves amused during the days indoors. All winter long with the windows closed there was no problem, but now allergies suddenly become an issue. Surely it's a coincidence that trips to the Shore or the mountains are on the calendar. And the allergy is always blamed on the cat;it's never suntan lotion or BBQ sauce.

Of course the truth is that irresponsible and heartless people simply don't want to arrange for a cat sitter. How can they enjoy themselves in the sun knowing that they've put out in the street the cat that loved them? What the poor cat most likely faces is pain and death from cars, dogs or cruel people.

This friendly cat out on the sidewalk was very fortunate to be spotted by a caring person who arranged for a foster.

Metro Cat Rescue coordinates the volunteer care of many outdoor cats in a number of colonies. We’re working hard to bring some inside to socialize and to place in good homes. This takes lots of time, space and money.

Our day with the rescue cats starts at 6am and ends at 8pm. Volunteer feeding of community cats is at dawn.

This rescue kitten is getting big! Named Tiger, he thinks that he's a jungle cat. He loves to climb up a pant leg and then sit on a shoulder.

This little guy is one of the rare lucky ones. Lovely Ginny, the mom, was living in an alley in Queens. Tame and friendly, Ginny almost certainly was a house cat thrown away by some heartless person who never should have had a cat. A mom to be, Ginny's great good luck was to be taken in by a foster in Bellmore, Long Island.

The first picture shows Little Mitzy last spring getting ready for a trip to the vet. She's one of the six kittens that were born in an old car about to be towed to the junkyard. Metro Cat Rescue save the whole family.

After just a couple of days of medicine, Mitzy was much better.

A few months later, Mitzy has gone from a waif to a princess!

Take a look at the Photos here on the Metro Cat Rescue Facebook Page and you'll see just some of the many cats that we've helped.
