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!

Here's Tiptop years ago as a kitten right after a Metro Cat Rescue volunteer saved him. Tiptop was a homeless young neighborhood cat. He and his siblings were abandoned when about 8 weeks old by people moving out of an apartment. A Metro Cat Rescue volunteer brought them breakfast every morning, but they still were subject to all the typical dangers of cats outdoors. Plus, the neighbors expressed hostility against the poor. The others kittens were shy, but Tiptop would run with tail held high to greet people he knows. He loved being petted. Tiptop was brought inside.* * *Metro Cat Rescue coordinates the care of community cats. We need your support now to continue to be there for kittens and cats in need.

The video shows Tiptop on the way to the animal hospital for a dental procedure. The estimate is $1,500. Poor Tiptop has many bad teeth and has been on pain medication for weeks.Metro Cat Rescue needs your help so that we can help kittens and cats in need. Here's the Link to the Metro Cat Rescue GoFundMe Page to donate:www.gofundme.com/f/metro-cat-rescueThere was a bit of drama taking Tiptop to the vet this morning. The little guy decided he wasn’t going. When putting him in the carrier, Tiptop bit down on my hand. Luckily, I was wearing the heavy gloves. Because of the tooth decay, Tiptop wasn’t able to get through the leather and so I didn’t get wounded again.* * *There are MANY more cats needing medical attention and care. The sad fact is with money so low that I'm worried about groceries for myself, there's none for more vet visits. Giving any amount will be a huge help.
