Amazon failed deliveries threatens to take food from starving cats.

Donate at the Metro Cat Rescue GoFundMe Page.

If anyone tried to donate gifts to Metro Cat Rescue, but had their Amazon.com orders returned, thank you very much for trying to help our little crew. Please do consider lodging a complaint with Amazon. Because of the many failed deliveries, Amazon has created a big problem for the kittens and cats that we help. Food is running very low.

Amazon’s private carrier — SAME DAY DELIVERY — either is not attempting delivery or is arriving after normal business hours. I’ve no idea what Amazon is thinking. This is a lot of trouble for us, a waste of time and irritation for those good and generous people helping us and a waste of money for Amazon.

SAME DAY DELIVERY showed up a number of times over the last couple of days after 6pm. They see that it’s closed, but go back the next day later instead of earlier. This has been a big problem for months, but has gotten much worse. They’ve failed to deliver many things this week.

I was on chat for an hour last night with Amazon Help. They were telling me that it needs to be explained to SAME DAY DELIVERY that this is a business address and deliveries need to be made during business hours. How I’m supposed to explain anything to them, I don’t know. When I see drivers, I tell them, but it’s always someone different and SAME DAY DELIVERY does not have an email. Also, they see that it’s a storefront, and note BUSINESS CLOSED, but keep going back later and later.

The shipping/postal address is Anthony Olszewski, CatRescue.tv, 297 Griffith St. Jersey City, NJ 07307. Deliveries are accepted by the barber on the corner of Kennedy from 8AM to 5:30PM. The corner of Kennedy and Griffith is the same building. That door is about 20 feet away from the door with the CatRescue.tv sign. There’s an 8.5 X 11 sheet on the door of 297 directing deliveries to the barber shop. He’s the landlord and accepts deliveries for the whole building.

For many years, we’ve gotten loads of things from Amazon delivered by UPS, Fedex and USPS — almost always without a problem. Why Amazon is hurting us by using SAME DAY DELIVERY that’s sending everything back, I don’t know.

Neighborhood cat backyard breakfast

Donate at the Metro Cat Rescue GoFundMe Page.

Neighborhood cat backyard breakfast

One of the breakfast regulars, this tortie uses a volunteer’s backyard installation.

In secure locations, dishes are provided. For the cats fed in front yards or the sidewalk, just enough dry food that the cats will eat is placed on the ground. This is to keep the ill-intentioned from knowing that cat feeding is taking place there.

The Metro Cat Rescue volunteers try to care for community cats in back yards.

The Metro Cat Rescue volunteers try to care for community cats in back yards. There, they can install shelters and provide dishes for the food as well as the water. Also, away from the street, the congregating cats are not obvious. This makes it less likely that heartless people will abandon house cats. Having the neighborhood cats in a protected space reduces the risk of abuse and cruelty.

When there is no access to private property, then dishes are not used for the food. This helps to keep unfriendly people nearby from being aware of the cats. Only the amount dry food that will be quickly consumed is placed on the sidewalk or behind fences. Water bowls are hidden in places that cats will see but that won’t be obvious to people.

The cats are now fed just before dawn. Our volunteers were going out earlier, but raccoons showed up in the dark. The masked marauders chased away the cats and ate all of the food.
Cat feeders have had to deal with people out early walking large and aggressive dogs that the owners either were unwilling or unable to control.

Outdoor Cats

Donate at the Metro Cat Rescue GoFundMe Page.

Metro Cat Rescue coordinates the volunteer care of many outdoor cats in a number of colonies.

Cats belong in a home, not out on the street. Care responsibly for the ones that don’t have a place of their own. Feed only as much as the cats will eat, not leaving any extra to encourage visits from rats or wildlife. Don’t let empty cans and other trash to accumulate and so create resentment from people living nearby. And — most importantly — NEUTER!

The beautiful Venus DeCoco was a feral kitten when she arrived.

The beautiful Venus DeCoco was a feral kitten when she arrived

The beautiful Venus DeCoco, born among the cars in an inner-city parking lot, was a feral kitten when she arrived. Indeed, when first placed in her temporary quarters, Ms. DeCoco delivered a solid bite to a finger with one long tooth neatly bouncing off of the bone. (The current bandage does not reflect that drama; the irritation so covered just is from washing the little crew’s bowls.)

Venus DeCoco’s days as a wild cat are oh so 2016. Now quite the lovey-dovey, she wants to be held all day.

Metro Cat Rescue more popular than Joe Piscopo on Facebook!

Metro Cat Rescue saved this kitten from the cold street.

Metro Cat Rescue
MetroCatRescue@gmail.com

Metro Cat Rescue has more Facebook Likes than Joe Piscopo, 6,226 to 3,793.

Metro Cat Rescue’s Anthony Olszewski – former bartender, former exterminator, lifelong resident of Jersey City and current member of Mensa — was asked to comment:
“I was surprised and humbled to learn that the Facebook audience finds Metro Cat Rescue’s pictures and stories of saved kittens and cats more interesting than Joe Piscopo. Piscopo – star of stage, screen, tube and speaker, ambassador of New Jersey culture and possible candidate for statewide office – has a 50,000 watt radio transmitter to let people know that he’s there. All I’ve got is a storefront on a side street in Jersey City!”

And the Metro Cat Rescue Facebook 6,226 Likes paw print is bigger than that of other radio celebrities, too. There’s Frank Morano (2,394), the 50,000 watt behemoth radio stations AM 970 (3,577) and WOR 710 (6,152), Gotti Family fan (NOT!) Curtis and attorney avec pony tail Kuby (6039), and even “One of America’s most listened to Radio/TV personalities, heard by over 16 million radio listeners a month” Mark Simone (5,868).

Anthony Olszewski and friends established Metro Cat Rescue to save kittens and cats — like those abandoned to the cruel horrors of the street by heartless owners. Metro Cat Rescue also cares for kittens that shelters routinely kill for being “too much trouble”. The 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.

Beautiful Venus DeCoco and the rest of the little Metro Cat Rescue crew want to thank everyone who donated through our Amazon Wish List. Each should have received a note of appreciation. If anyone did not, please accept a BIG THANK YOU with this post.

Perhaps due to the holidays rush, some of the Amazon deliveries arrived without paper work. Because of that, there was no way of contacting the donors to let them know how grateful we are.

Venus DeCoco was a kitten living in a cared for colony of ferals.

Venus DeCoco was a kitten living in a cared for colony of ferals. As the chill of autumn set in once and for all, the tyke’s health began to fail.

Venus came to Metro Cat Rescue sick with a cold and had to be kept by herself so as not to infect the other kittens and cats. Missing her life of freedom and friends, the little girl often sobbed with tears falling from her eyes. Very wild, human friendship at first was rejected.

After a trip to the vet, medicine, good food and warmth, Venus DeCoco became well, She has a kitten buddy. Beautiful Venus now loves people and is happy to be held all day.
