Up at the crack of dawn this #caturday morning to tackle the job of scrubbing & disinfecting our cat traps. Also got a little encouragement from the #black @meowdy cat. 😸
Just a friendly reminder to anyone involved in rescue, learn how to use a humane trap. Our favorite instructional video can be found on @kittenxlady YouTube channel, check it out!
Let’s say you hear about a litter of kittens, it could take months to try to “hand grab” & people who think they can lure scared kittens into a cat carrier better be prepared to quit their job & camp out for weeks. Maybe there’s a injured cat who needs help ASAP, or a lost cat who’s spotted, but too scared to come put on their own. Maybe you want to start doing responsible rescue, which to us means making sure a mother cat is fixed, you’re not just plucking up kittens.
We’ve trapped lost dogs & even we’re called to trap a small, sick coyote pup. Luckily we got California Fish & Wildlife to help the poor pup.
It always astounds us how many rescues have fleets of volunteers who have no clue about where the kittens actually come from, OR how trapping 1 female cat & making sure she’s spayed will stop the breeding. We “get it” it’s hard making everything happen, but it’s so important for people to know why rescues & shelters are flooded with kittens & how we can help address the root of the problem.
We’ll be @muddypawla tomorrow from 2-4 pm doing our Coffee & Kittens Adoption Mingle & we always have a trap so we can give a demo to anyone interested in learning how to #savekittens by fixing cats.
You don’t have to quit your day job to do #TNR, just trap & spay 5 female kitties per year, you’ll be preventing about 40-50 kittens from ever ending up in a shelter.
The goal of rescue shouldn’t just be more adoptions, if we truly want to save lives, we need to work on also decreasing the number of unwanted animals.

Our final #BlackCatAppreciationDay post is Bento, Liam, Cole, Milo & Morris’s brother.
2 years ago this month we started a heartbreaking journey [#helpingliamwalk] with 2 of the most special little souls. We tried SO hard to save them and lost the battle. Then we focused our efforts on their surviving brothers, Cole twin brother Bento & Liam’s twin brothers @miloandmorris. Baby panther Bento was adopted by his foster mom @whitneymannies & 7 months later, Liam’s twin Milo passed away of dry FIP. Morris & Bento are the only surviving kittens born to a pet cat who wasn’t spayed & had many litters over the years.
Our rescue effort has always been laser-focused on fixing cats to prevent all the unwanted kittens, but our journey with Liam, Cole & Milo, all their suffering happened because 1 person didn’t take responsibility to fix her cat.
We love you SO much baby panther Bento & on behalf of your brothers, we’ll do everything we can to make more people aware & beg for their support to help fix more cats.
We hope you’ll read through #helpingliamwalk & decide for yourself if YOU want to put an end to kitten’s being born with deformities, kittens dumped at shelters like garbage or left on the street to struggle to survive And grow up to continue breeding more unwanted litters.
We simply must start making #spayneuter our #1 priority & truly #savekittens.

Trap night #2 at the business complex was a double success! 🐱🐱 Two young kitties walked into the trap at the same time. (Teens are more daring, eh? All the older cats just raised an eyebrow from afar, like, “We don’t need any new contraptions, thanks.”)
.
Superhero rescue friend April will see if they’re big enough to get fixed! Thank you, April, and business owner Pearl for their incredible support!!
.
#spayneuter is the difference between life and death.
.
You may be seeing tons of adoptable kitten photos on social media, and while they are cute, what’s not cute is the very real fact that there are millions of homeless, “unphotogenic” kittens nationwide who are born every year, only to die.
.
They are cold, sick, abandoned, disease-ridden, flea-ridden, and suffering because there’s not enough educational and financial support for #TNR (trap-neuter-return) — a humane solution to fixing homeless animals and preventing their population from increasing and burdening overflowing shelters/rescues. Kittens are among the first to be euthanized at shelters because there simply isn’t enough room and there aren’t enough responsible adopters.
.
How can you help? Be a hero! ⭐️ Check out @straycatalliance and @fixnation! Reach out to your local rescues and say, “I want to trap and fix community cats. Teach me!”
.
If you wish to see no more overflowing shelters, no more senseless euthanasia, no more clear-the-shelter events, #spayneuter is the way! Be part of the solution!

Yay, 545 kitties in 7 months. So early this morning we ran in only 8, a small load of kitties for us, but we’re backlogged with kittens that need to get fixed so they’re adoption ready.
@mcsqweets has been spent his day off yesterday working to trap a mother cat, the cat daddy & their 3 kittens #Dtla. This is the same location where we had to net that poor kitty sick kitty a few months ago. Well we’re so overloaded with TNR projects & we didn’t make it back to fix the mom before she had a litter- VERY bad. Luckily Rita who works nearby has been feeding the cat fam & Jonathan managed to get all the kitties into traps. Rita will be fostering the kittens, cuz we just don’t have enough fosters.
We’re getting the work done, but if anyone plans to stick around LA for a few weeks & can help by fostering, we need your help! Head to SaveKittensLA.org & send in a foster app OR swing by @muddypawla Sunday 2-4 pm for our adoption mingle!

Mateo & Matthias: not brothers, but fast friends! Mateo was trapped after we noticed he had a nasty de-gloving injury on his tail (now 3/4 amputated) and little Matthias was scooped up after one of our friends called in an emaciated, mangey kitten sitting on their back porch. They are both doing great now! To foster/adopt: @luxepaws #rescuekittens #spayneutersaveslives #nomorehomelesspets #tnrworks #fixla

Hopefully you can see that one kitten is sticking his paw into his sister’s trap....TOO ADORABLE!!! He was trapped after his mother~his sister and other brother were trapped about 24 hours later. Happy to see you sis even through we are in these small prisons!!! 💕#kittens #kittensiblings #feralkitten #cats #feralcats #spayneuter #spayneutersaveslives #spayneuteradopt #chicago @felinefriendschicago

And the third kitten~a girl! This little girl and one of her brothers went in one trap at the same time. It was crazy! We had only put one trap out as we thought there was only one kitten left outside. When the trap shut, there was such a banging around and that was both kittens scared, going back and forth, until we put the sheet over the trap and brought them inside a neighbor’s house. We then had to put one kitten in another trap that night. So all three kittens got to near each other AND close to their mother, Oreo, who had been spayed already. #cats #feralcats #feralkitten #fosterhome #foreverhome #chicago #spayneuter #spayneutersaveslives @felinefriendschicago

Pretty much sums up the root of the problem. We WILL give people a slight break, because there’s so little community outreach being done to inform people about #spayneuter & #trapneuterreturn.
On any given day we get calls, emails, FB messages, DM on IG about cats giving birth, injures cats we should somehow come “collect.” For easily 10 years now, LA’s rescue community has focused on promoting adoptions. Pet stores have cages set up, shelter’s give animals away, heck the “ Adopt & Shop” model is a great marketing tool. What’s been missing is the “why” all these animals need homes. Where did they all come from, what can be done to prevent all these homeless animals. Is the goal more adoptions, or fewer unwanted animals.
Should we circle back & start directing more resources to help people FIX more animals, or just ignore the root of the homeless animal crisis & hope there’s someone ready to “collect” all the unwanted litters.
Did you even know there’s only 1 place in all of LA, @fixnation that will fix stray cats for free? Did you know most of the unwanted litters are born to stray cats, meaning thousands of kittens COULD be saved if there was a greater rescue effort directed to fixing more cats.
We don’t need more rescues, more kitten nurseries, more adoption centers, we need to re-think our approach to rescue, and invest in FIXING our way to “No Kill.” #fixtheproblem #spayneutersaveslives #wecandobetter #kittenseasonisntcute #fixcats #fixdogs #realrescue #solutionsnotbandaids #savekittens #losangeles

We'd like to introduce you to some wonderful doggies, below are Meghan, Rilee, Jane, Kenzi and Bebé, these 5 girls all have 1 thing in common, their owners didn't bother their hole spaying them so all 5 came to us heavily pregnant to have their litters in our care this month!!
They are all wonderful amazing mothers and all pups and momma dogs are doing well in our care..
We now have an extra 34 pups and dogs to vaccinate, worm, feed, microchip and all other expenses, if you can help us please donate €4 by texting Cara to 50300 or you can PayPal us at caradogs@hotmail.com
We are struggling with the bills at the moment so all and any help would be appreciated.

Pet Project Foundation and our partner @scdp_animal_shelter, through their A Rescue Mission Program, received 20 kittens from Stanislaus Animal Services yesterday. The transfer was made in Bakersfield. It is through this program that we are able to help other animal agencies, when we are able to, so that more animals will find loving homes. And it is through our supporters that we are able to continue to do this. After the long, hot ride, the kittens were cleaned up and fed. They will go into foster homes to be sure that they are healthy before being available for adoption. ❤️😻. #adoptdontshop #spayneutersaveslives #sheltercats

A message from Angela Chapman, New Leash on Life Executive Director:

Kittens, kittens, kittens everywhere. Folks, if you know of ANY stray cats, PLEASE help get them trapped & fixed.
The JOY Clinic for low cost Spay & Neuter services (@newleashtn), Sumner Spay Neuter Alliance, Pet Community Center (@petcommunitycenter) are 3 options for low cost spay neuter services.
There are other options too. And often there's funding/grants to help cover the surgery cost. There are safe traps you can borrow to catch them.

Little known fact: cats can get pregnant at 4 months! So 1 unaltered cat can quickly become a colony of cats; an overwhelming situation.
At the shelter we get calls all day about kittens found under homes, porches, cars, in barns, etc. The more cats that are fixed, the less homeless kittens there will be.

💔Discarded like trash at the dog park. Welcome to LA people, where there’s little effort invested in fixing kitties & decreasing the number of unwanted cats & kittens, but people think it’s “ok” to do cover the cost of spay/neuter for animals already at the shelter & then give them away for free or $10. Anyone ever consider how many litter we could SAVE if we gave away more spay/neuter instead of peddling these sweet little souls just to increase adoption numbers?
The LA news has been filled with stories of overcrowded shelters, FREE adoptions, oh a poor terrier pup was abandoned by two women on the Hollywood Freeway in rush hour traffic & a sweet pit bull named Valarie/Cargo was adopted for “free” from the Orange County Animal Shelter a few weeks ago & found raped, and subsequently died after being rescued by @ghettorescue.
Are we outraged at the sheer lack of compassion, yes. Will we stop preaching #spayneuter, no way. Are we hell bent on making the public aware of the fact that all these animals aren’t being discarded because there aren’t enough homes & sorry but it’s not about breeders dumping thousands of pups & kitties. The reason we have thousands of unwanted animals is because we’re not taking responsibly for fixing more dogs & cats.
We can donate to save 1 dog or cat, but we can’t seem to support saving hundreds by doing whatever it takes to fix cats & dogs.
A latte will set you back $5, what message are we sending by promoting kittens or pups for $10? Is there life that worthless. Heck if you move, or can’t afford vet care, no worries, go grab another animal at the next “give way” event.
Even more infuriating, the $10 kitties & pups are fixed, so “someone” is already eating the cost of a spay or neuter, so why not just save an entire litter of pups or kittens by donating that spay or neuter to an animal that needs it.
Our shelters aren’t flooded because of fires or hoarding cases, they’re packed because animal advocate refuse to demand & help fund solutions.
Yes we need fosters & adopters, but what we TRALLY need is for the public to stop talking about “No Kill” & help prevent the all the littering.

Just released this little polydactyl guy (all neutered and fed!) back to the bushes behind the business complex!

It’s trap night! 🐱 After being alerted of an explosion of cats and kittens at a nearby business complex (which will remain unnamed to protect the cats), I headed over to set out my trap and waited almost two hours.
.
Just as I was about to give up, one of the young kitties (a tuxedo) finally walked in! Woohoo - no litter of kittens for this one!
.
And a woman who came by and saw me trapping was ecstatic — turned out she’s a fellow Taiwanese business owner in the district who has been feeding these cats for the past four years! She used to have a rescue partner helping her trap but the partner unfortunately passed away. With English not being the business owner’s primary language, she didn’t know who else to go to. So I got her number - we're ready to fix the colony, one at a time! (Many thanks to superhero rescue friend April for her incredible support in helping us!)

Thank you so much to Michele of @milos_sanctuary for partnering with #mooncatcafe today in #losangeles for a private surprise birthday celebration and video segment! 😸🎉 (Will share the video when it’s ready!)
.
These three #adoptablekittens are all strong survivors and available for pre-adoption! 🐾❤️.
.
Mocha Latte (brown & white) is a ragdoll who was born with eyelid agenesis - a genetic condition resulting from backyard overbreeding. While Mocha has limited vision, he can still see and will be having corrective surgery to give him eyelids when he’s old enough (6 months old)!
.
Maverick (white & gray) was kicked by an abuser so hard that his femur and pelvic bone were fractured. Luckily, he got emergency surgery and he’s walking now! (No jumps allowed for little Maverick until he’s fully healed.)
.
And last but definitely not least, Onyx is an all-black kitty who was found with his lower lip completely torn and hanging off. But Milo’s Sanctuary helped get it sewn back on, and he’s been talking non-stop ever since!
.
For anyone considering adopting kittens (please do! kitten season is overwhelming!), note that solo kittens will not be adopted out without another kitten buddy or a playmate already at home.
.
For more information about the amazing work that Milo’s Sanctuary is doing for #specialneedscats (and has been for the last 14 years!), please follow them and check out milossanctuary.org!
.
And spread the word about #spayneuter!!! The city of Los Angeles provides zero funding for spay/neuter, and as a result kitten season gets worse every year and both cats and kittens are being euthanized at record numbers in the shelters! 🚨 #spayneutersaveslives!

⭐️ Happy International Cat from our 2018 rescue #cat of the year, Hef!
This video was taken when @twink6 released Hef back to the streets of LA after his neuter surgery. Poor baby just sat there & seemed to wonder why he was back. He’d spent the past 48 hours in a humane trap, but at least he was safe & well fed. He wasn’t dodging cars, scrounging for food, huddling under a car to stay safe at night. He was kicked out of the way by people who viewed him as vermin. He was being cared for, even if it was just in a humane trap.
Well, Gretchen watched as Hef sat there confused & instead of grabbing the empty trap, like we always do & walking away, she walked back, out Hef back in the trap & we made the choice find Hef a home.
He wasn’t a feral cat, he pawed through the trap for attention, purred like a kitten for gentle head rubs. He had a kitty cold even though he’d been given an antibiotic shot & we knew Hef probably won’t make it too many more years on the street, Hef was too friendly & too tame.
The next time you see a picture of an adorable, fluffy kitten, think of Hef, or any of the stray cats because they were all once fluffy, little love nuggets who struggle to survive on the street simply because there’s nobody rescuing them, and worse fixing them to prevent even more from taking their place.
Doing #trapneuterreturn taught our team a very different side of “rescue.” It’s thrust us into emotional holes, at times. We can’t take them all in, there aren’t enough adopters or funds to support them. We fix the cats to ensure more aren’t born to suffer & save the ones we can responsibly juggle. We rescued Hef because he needed someone to give him a chance. Now he’s overcome pneumonia, he’s shuttled to several different foster homes & will need another foster starting Friday. Jed’s a gentle, stoic teddy bear, who appreciates every ounce of love that comes his way. We 🙏🏻 we can find Hef a VERY special forever home & today, on International Cat Day we hope this image of Hef makes everyone stop & consider how many cats just like Hef are on the street now, they’re not in a shelter & nobody’s “networking” them or fixing them.

Yoda and Smokey we’re trapped tonight!!These two kittens are from the same litter as Mittens who we trapped yesterday and the babies of the calico mom we also trapped yesterday. We left two traps with the family who feeds them and both kittens went in the same trap tonight!
We will bring them to @thespayedclub tomorrow to be neutered. They are four months old usually too old to socialize but the family has been working with them so we will see how they feel about being inside and around new people 💗🙏 #tnr #spayneuter #kittensofinstagram #kittenseason #rescue #spayneutersaveslives

These numbers are staggering, and they are why we do what we do. Thanks to the generosity of @luvabledogrescue , we are able to provide $10 Pit Fix vouchers to help reduce Pit and Pit mix overpopulation. Help us spread the word about the importance of spay/neuter!

Thank you so much to @ritual for inviting #mooncatcafe back for another private birthday celebration! 🎉 But this time with a special twist - we’re partnered with Laura from @adoptmerescue to host #adoptablepuppies on board! 🐶❤️.
.
Buddy (white) was one of six puppies in dire need of rescue after his owner was evicted. Boo (brown) was found tied up next to a freeway with a bag of puppy food. And Peanut (black & white) was left neglected in his owner’s backyard until the neighbors luckily called for help. 🐶🐶🐶 They’re all vaccinated, fixed, and looking for their forever homes!
.
Interested in adopting, fostering, or volunteering? Visit adoptmerescue.org for more information! 🎉.
