     A few words to express my sincere appreciation for the on-line assistance provided to help two kittens (Jewels & Chili) find a loving home. The lovely family who adopted them are thrilled with both kittens, and Jewels is so happy to have her littermate Chili with her. I could not be more pleased. Thank you, Rescue Me!

     Thank you, Rescue Me! After four months, 'Skye' found his new forever home. She said she felt an instant connection. She came to meet him and everyone got along great. Skye is both lovely and loving. The more his new mom and I chatted, the more it became apparent she was the one. When I went to visit them two weeks ago, all was good. He's clearly been spoiled! After having been found weak and scared, Skye now has a good life. I'll always be his foster mom, and will always take him back if he needs. I cried for days and miss him terribly, but remind myself that two beings, Skye and his new mom, have a happy life together. Please encourage everyone you know to spay/neuter and microchip. There will never be enough homes or foster homes or shelters to save all the cats and dogs. And if you adopt, please consider an adult pet.

     Precious is getting familiar with the house. She doesn't wander far from our bedroom, but it has been less than a week. She has met Jerry and Betty, our other female cats. They are about three years old. We have not introduced her to the dogs yet. We will wait until she more comfortable with the house and the cats. She is a very loving cat and loves to be petted. She purrs when she lays on the bed with my husband and me. She is learning her way around the house. Jerry and Betty go outside during the day. We are very happy to have added Precious to our fur family. Thank you, Rescue Me!

     Rescue Me helped me adopt two orphaned kittens to a nice family. They were really caring and they drove in all the way from Pearland to pick up one kitten and fell in love with another one. They left with two. That night one of the kittens they picked got really sick and dehydrated and almost died. With the help of several experienced friends, they were able to save the kitten. I have not heard from them in a while, but I hope all is well.

     This little boy named Drake who is only eight weeks old was only on the Rescue Me site for 24 hours. The minute I got my email with new updated cats I immediately clicked on and the first cat I saw was Drake. I certainly didn't waste any time, so I emailed Kelsey the owner right away. I knew within a minute that he was for me. I was originally looking for a tabby cat but could never find any. So at first I thought Drake was all white in the picture, but he wasn't in person which made it even better. I then communicated back and forth all day and night. Then I got an email from the owner saying she found someone else. Honestly, when I read that I was heartbroken, but that didn't stop me from trying. I wrote her back another email expressing my love for him. I told her that he couldn't be in better hands, and that I promised her that I will love and nurture him for the rest of my life. Then about 1:00 AM, I decided to check my email and there was an email from Kelsey. When I opened it up and read it, I jumped for joy cause she decided to choose me in the end. Then the next day she brought Drake to me and we have been inseparable ever since. The only thing I did was change his new name to 'Butterscotch' which happens to be a tabby cat after all. I can't thank her or Rescue Me enough. You all have made my life so much better having him in my life.

     An eight year old cat can be very difficult to place (especially when kitten season has started). Alexis saw Holly on Rescue Me and contacted us about giving her a home. Holly is now right where she belongs. If it were not for Rescue Me, this beautiful orange Tortie would still be waiting to be adopted. Our rescue cannot express our gratitude enough to this wonderful group and the wonderful woman that responded to a pet's need.

     Blade was adopted in an hour on Rescue Me. His owner died in the apartment and the police were getting ready to put him in a shelter. But because someone saw him on this site a week or so before and had passed him on to a senior cat rescue, they had contacted me the day of the owner expiring. They went into action when I told them the situation. Blade was rescued just in the nick of time. Rescue Me was truly a blessing in this case. Thank you so much!

     I posted on Rescue Me for this wonderful cat who needed a home. To be honest, I didn't have much faith in this site only because I live in Italy and the site is not very well-known here (and most of the postings are in English). However, after a few months, I was contacted by someone who was new in town and looking for a cat. We met up and I was assured that the cat would be cared for and loved by this person. I am so happy that I posted here and will recommend this site to my friends here in Italy and abroad as well! Thank you, Rescue Me!

     Polar Bear is a challenging pet. He is strong and feisty and it is my belief that his actions are highly misunderstood. When we got to the point where most of the humans who came into the house were afraid of him, he went from being an inside cat to an outside cat. I thought if he could run and climb, it might help him expend some energy. But outside, he was extremely unhappy. His behaviors even intensified. We contacted the local shelter and they would not take him. They advised us to euthanize him. I searched online for an answer and I saw this site. When I posted Polar Bear on Rescue Me I had very little hope that this animal would be adopted. Very soon someone contacted me who was unable to adopt him, but had some great advice and words of support to buy some time. Then a few weeks later a true cat lover saw his picture on this site and was very interested in him. She contacted me and I explained his whole story to her. She is experienced with cats and she set up a plan for how to work with him to rehabilitate him. Polar Bear craves attention and his adopter will be able to give it to him. He can be affectionate and steal your heart if you can understand what he is asking for. He is quite a character. Now he has another chance. This site saved his life.

She made the drive the very next day and without hesitation knew she wanted him despite his shyness. I met her and her husband and felt instantly they were solid animal lovers and are excited to share their lives, love and home with him! And I might add he just added a zero to his new living arrangements coming from a 300 square foot apartment, he will be living large and being loved ten fold! I know they will give him what he needs and that he will love them in abundance in return! I thank them both from the bottom of my heart and wish them love and happiness!

     My husband and I grieved for two years over the loss of our beloved Turkish Angora, whom we had to have euthanized due to cancer. I'd been keeping an eye on Rescue Me for Turkish Angoras, but they have proved to be in short supply. I kept praying. I was astounded when the posting for Tabitha appeared. She is almost a clone of our beloved kitty, right down to the manner in which she first came on the scene for the kindly people who posted here. The adoption proceeded with incredible ease, and we are still doing double takes as our new girl has settled in, as though she has lived here all her life.

     My 18 month old granddaughter came to live with me. Shortly after, she began having many health issues. After multiple hospitalizations, we discovered that it was partially due to an allergy to my cat, Shimmer. I've had Shimmer since she was only four weeks old, and now she is almost 10 years old. Shimmer has a very peculiar personality... Not very social. She despises dogs and isn't the greatest with other cats. She ever only really connected to myself and one of my daughters... Everyone else gets hissed at and sometimes swatted at. She also has some very 'interesting' behaviors, such as, urinating on anything lying on the floor in the same room as her litter box. I tried for two months, very unsuccessfully, to find Shimmer a new home due to my little one's health issues. Unfortunately, everyone seems to always want kittens... Or even if they are looking for an older cat, they had no interest in Shimmer due to her personality. I then tried to find a no-kill shelter that could take her in, but every no-kill shelter within a four hour radius was full. I was hitting many roadblocks in trying to find Shimmer a new home. I stumbled across Rescue Me by accident as I was searching for more shelters beyond the four hour radius of my home. I figured it was worth a shot so I made my post. As I had done previously in my efforts, I remained very honest about Shimmer's 'quirks' as I wanted her new home to be fully prepared for the lengthy transition that would be required. Within five days, I had multiple inquiries. Conversations with the first few individuals led to me to believe they weren't 'right' for Shimmer. But, then I heard from Darla. Darla really seemed to understand the heartbreak I was going through and, more importantly, she understood what I was saying about Shimmer and expressed that she would give Shimmer the time she needs. We agreed to make Darla Shimmer's new mom. I drove Shimmer for three hours to get to her new home. Of course, she was very stressed out when we arrived. Darla was very patient with her immediately... But, what shocked me more than anything else is that Shimmer immediately connected with Darla. In 10 years, I have NEVER seen Shimmer allow anyone besides me and my daughter touch her without getting hissed at. Within the first five minutes, Darla was petting and scratching Shimmer and Shimmer was loving it. I was utterly shocked! But, so very happy to find Shimmer a new home that she will be happy in. Thank you, Rescue Me, for helping me find such a wonderful home for Shimmer!

     Today is day two for Christine and her pal, Cujo, settling into our home after their previous owner had to put them up for adoption due to her own living circumstances being disrupted. It is always heartbreaking to me to see older, much-loved pets threatened with euthanasia because they aren't as attractive to adopters as are cuddly kittens, so after keeping an eye on these two for a month, we decided to help their grieving owner and give them those additional years every kitty deserves. We have every expectation that they will bring joy to our lives, and will also send follow-up photos to their loving previous caregiver, so she, too, can be well-pleased with the outcome that posting on this wonderful website made possible. Thank you, Rescue Me!

     Charlie was adopted. Charlie was our cat who was totally deaf and needed some special care. His personality was so sweet that his foster Mom adopted him. The picture you have shows how 'scrawny' he was when we first found him; today he has gained about three pounds, his fur is glossy and he is such a happy fellow. He knows his way around his foster home and is a total inside cat--no more dirty ditches for Charlie. Thanks for the help, Rescue Me.

     Hi, I posted two, little kittens, Rosie and Roxy. I'm happy to say they've finally been adopted by a lovely man, JC. I'm missing them already, but I am enjoying the relief I'm slowly getting from my allergies. Thank you Rescue Me for helping find these little sweeties a forever home.

     We were able to find our sweet cat a home. I feel like the couple who adopted him was a wonderful fit for our cat. I know they will be happy for years to come. I am very pleased with the responses I received from Rescue Me. Thank you!

     Hero and Lucky were two cats that found their loving home through Rescue Me! They survived a huge wildfire before they came to my rescue. They spent months recuperating in our sanctuary or my foster's homes. Then they went to live with the perfect couple. I am sure it will be a happily ever after for them.

     When people viewing Rescue Me saw that poor Ming was living outside, but that she had been declawed, she was adopted in two days. I'm glad she and Debbie will be there for one another from now on.

     I would like to share my wonderful experience and appreciation for Rescue Me. My family rescued 'Toby' as a companion and birthday gift for our recently widowed mother with dementia, who happens to be an animal lover but was pet-less at the time. I personally scrolled through several cats to find the best match for mom. Rescue Me made it very easy with their lengthy descriptions and details about each cat along with a photo. I was looking for a cat who just wanted lots of attention, wanted to be held, would sleep with mom and didn't mind strangers coming and going. The color, sex and age really didn't matter to us . There were many that sounded wonderful, but when I found the description for Toby, he had it all and more! He was once a flea and tick infested starving cat almost getting hit by cars. We can't begin to tell you the joy he's brought to our 79-year-old mother, her caregiver and all our family He is amazing and very loved! In the past, I have gotten kittens for myself, but that stage only last approximately one year and you can't be sure of their adult disposition. By adopting an adult cat you already know the disposition. This would be my only way of getting cats in the future Rescue Me made it very easy from beginning to end and we are so thankful for them and blessed to have Toby! Mom and Toby are now one and have helped each other tremendously! Thank you, Rescue Me!

     I was so happy that I posted Scrappy on this website! He was actually adopted the first weekend. He went to a lovely family that had lost a Maine Coon and wanted another one. I took him there and though it was so hard to leave him I knew that he was in a good home when I saw a huge basket of cat toys. Thank you, Rescue Me.

     My husband and I got our beautiful cat Shyla from one of our local shelters. As her name suggests, Shyla was incredibly shy and had been at the shelter for most of her two years of life. We saw her picture on Rescue Me, otherwise we wouldn't have known she was there because she was hiding! We have had her for three weeks and she is really blossoming. She is incredibly smart and affectionate and she loves being in our home. She quickly learned that she could have the run of the house except for the kitchen counters and dining table. She is such a joy!

     Phyllis found my baby boy on Rescue Me, she e-mailed and we set up a day and time so we all could meet. She lived over two hours south from me. Phyllis and her husband, Arthur, were taken back by my little boys beautiful eyes and his cute and adorable face. They told me their 15 year old cat had died a month earlier and they have another one at home that is eight years old. I was happy to hear he would have a playmate and talking to Phyllis and Arthur. I also realized he will have a wonderful furever home. Thank you, Rescue Me!

     The gray boy was adopted today! I posted the litter's pictures two weeks ago on Rescue Me. I received two queries for gray boy. I know he's going to a good home. He's going to make a wonderful companion for a nice family.

     The kittens became part of Apollo's Pal's a few months back. There were four adorable kittens that someone was trying to get put in one of our local shelters. The shelter had no room so I decided to help. We were able to find homes for two of the kittens, but were unable to place the other two. I posted them on Rescue Me and were able to find homes. I am glad we were able to place these sweet loving kittens. I normally only rescue dogs, but I was not going to see these four little girls be put on the street with no chance. Thanks, Rescue Me.

     Save-A-Heartbeat had many, many success stories from posting on Rescue Me last year. It was our first official year in rescue even though we been rescuing since 2007. Almost all our kitties are rescued from death.... Literally. They are all facing the needle in a kill shelter and when we get them, they guarantee some sort of illness where we have to 'nurse' them back to health with medication and nutrition not to mention cuddles, warmth and love. Galaxy is going to a wonderful girl who is over-joyed. Samantha went to a family who makes a decent living and spoils her to no end. The mystery lives with a kitty that is a tripod and a Chihuahua, and they all play together. Bo lives with a family with two kids who adore playing with him. Loki is spoiled and has two older sister kitties that she terrorizes to get them to play with her. Bronx has a Golden Doodle as a playmate along with a little boy and a new mama who just kisses him to death. The stories are endless. We will try to keep up with them as they get adopted so you can all see how wonderful it is to change the lives of all these babies and the families that adopt them.

     Less than one hour ago both cats, Soft Paws and Whiner, went to their new family together. However, I still have several kitties that need to be re-homed. So, if you are reading this, please check my posts. Thank you from the bottom of my heart to Rescue Me.

     Chrissy was difficult to find a home for, and just when it looked like she would live alone forever, she was lucky enough to find herself a fantastic forever home with a wonderful family! She has two new delightful human sisters that took to her immediately and seemed to just burst if they couldn't get her home as soon as possible! It was a storybook adoption! Thank you Rescue Me and Chrissy's new family! Thank you.

     Salem and October were the last of six kittens from a colony that needed to find homes, preferably together. An adopter noticed them on Rescue Me and asked for a meeting. It turned out to be a woman I use to work with in just the next town over. The foster mom described the home visit as the longest and most comfortable she has been on. The boys are settling in this morning because Rescue Me brought us together. Thank you!

     Hello Jeff Gold and Rebecca Novak. Jeff, I first and foremost wish to thank you for making such an essential site available. And, Rebecca, I want to thank you for your kind assistance with ensuring my post and email were correct. We posted Emma and Rue just a few days ago on Rescue Me. We received immediate calls from families wishing to adopt. We were delighted to find a family with children who could provide a loving home for these wonderful animals. We tried other venues before just happening upon yours. The connections were amazing - and the love of animals is clear. You provide such a special and essential venue for our world's animals, and we want to express our deep gratitude for all you do. Warm Regards, Sandra and Anthony 'Until one has loved an animal, a part of one's soul remains unawakened.' Anatole France

     Star is the third senior cat that I have adopted through Rescue Me! It is a wonderful service that you provide, both for the animals and the people involved. I would recommend to any cat lover to consider senior cats as new pets. Tiger, GrayBaby and now Star are joys!

     Thank you, Rescue Me. Leon was adopted this past weekend. He's going to be strictly an inside cat which will be easy since the new owners live in an apartment. The owners have agreed to neuter him and not declaw him. He was taken to the vet today for check up and shots and all went well. I'm afraid the only thing Tiger has to fear is being loved to death! He went to a couple that have been married 65 years (90 and 85 years old) and have always had cats. They just lost their 17 year old cat two months ago. They have three adult daughters that live in the area and are already fighting about who will take him when the time comes. Tiger is a wonderful lap kitten and will get plenty of lap time with his new owners that adore him!
