Below is a letter from one of our former fosters Buffers and her loving parents. It lightens up our day and we want to share it with all of you out there. Enjoy!
--"Hi Mama Julie,
It’s me Buffers! My Mommy and Daddy call me Lucy (but I’ll always be Buffers to you)
It’s my 1st Birthday!! Can you believe it?
I wanted to let you know how great I’m doing and show you how big and strong I’ve grown. I just love to run and play games. One of my favorite games is peek-a-boo with Daddy, I sit on the stairs and reach my arm out through the banister and bat him on the head. I make them laugh a lot, they think I’m the funniest Comedienne ever! Most of all I love to snuggle up for power cat-naps. I’m a very good girl and hardly ever forget the rules, except I like to get the little “cutie oranges” from the basket on the counter (I’m not allowed on the counter), but I can’t help it, they make the best soccer balls! In fact I can turn ANYTHING into a toy – or a game, like making the bed, doing laundry, sweeping the floor. Who knew chores could be so much fun!
I was so happy to receive your Christmas card and to know that you are saving so many of my sisters and brothers through Cats Cradle Rescue. You are THE Best foster Mom!
Buffers (a.k.a. Lucy)
Kevin and I could not be happier with Lucy, she was meant for us. She is SO funny, and sweet, she fills our home with love and laughter. What else could we ask for?
Thank you again for all you do to save these wonderful little babies.
Kevin & Dana"
We reached our goal this afternoon for the Cali Fund
which has paid for the surgery this great cat needed. 100% donated funds!!
A HUGE thank you to all the donors for your generous gifts from the heart that funded Cali's surgery. You have contributed 100% of the money that were needed to bring her back to health - she is now officially adoptable and the lucky family that makes her part of their family will have a great companion. Each life saved makes a difference!
Thank you to all of you that helped over Christmas and spread the word that Cat's Cradle Rescue, while young, is becoming a factor in the world of cat rescue in the tri-county area.
Congratulations on being a part of a great group that makes a difference in the lives of cats in our area.
There's still $200 more to go with the Cali Fund but we are glad to announce that Sweet Cali had her surgery on Tuesday, and is recovering well and ready to find her forever home!
She could not wait longer for CCR to get the money together. She had 13 teeth pulled and the vet said "the inside of her mouth looked like hamburger". On her return to her temporary 'home' she purred and head-butted me, flipped on her back and made her Air Muffin feet. She ate canned food and even tried dry.
Now we really do have to start looking for donors - thank you - thank you - to the many people who have already helped as even $5 counts up! Cali will be at Petco Beaverton on Saturday (February 23rd) to meet with her fans and supporters. Show up to meet with this fabulous kitty!
Cali is a 5-6 year old female cat that staggered her way
to a home in Hillsboro for help when she was lost, starving and sick. After searching for the owner with no luck,
the Good Samaritan that found her took Cali to her vet as she was near exhaustion from exposure and lack of food.
It was discovered that she has a treatable dental/medical condition that
makes it extremely painful to chew and eat.
Cat's Cradle Rescue was approached to help this friendly, outgoing cat
when other rescues and shelters were unable or unwilling to help.
WHO is Cali:
Cali is a Dilute Tortoiseshell adult cat. During
her initial examination for dehydration, malnutrition and exhaustion it was
discovered that she needs expensive dental care to survive pain-free long-term. Cali has proven to be friendly with dogs and
children. She has not been tried with
other cats but her "get along" gentle nature makes us think there
will be no problem. She has tested
negative for FIV and FeLV. She is spayed
and will be microchipped and vaccinated as appropriate.
WHAT are we hoping to do:
Cat's Cradle Rescue needs to raise $580 for her discounted dental procedure.
Cali has Feline Chronic lymphocytic plasmacytic stomatitis/gingivitis
HOW you can help:
Cat's Cradle Rescue is a 501(c)(3) no-kill non-profit
foster-home based rescue group located primarily in Washington County, OR. As a rescue we rely on cash donations and
in-kind food and products given to CCR by people like yourself. Every donation no matter how small will add
up to the $580 that we are hoping to raise for Cali's procedure. Donating via PayPal (see the button below) is safe and secure. Please indicate The Cali Fund as a donation

Cat's Cradle Rescue is seeking qualified foster volunteers for cats and kittens. As a foster home based rescue group, we do not have a physical shelter. All of the cats and kittens in our care live in foster homes
until adopted by their forever families. The more qualified foster families, the more cats and kittens we can save. Foster parents help CCR save more lives and make our community a better and friendlier place for our feline friends!
When you join our foster program, you are expected to provide a safe and clean environment to the cats/kittens and care for them as if they were your own. By living with you and interacting with you and your family members, foster cats/kittens often acquire
better socialization skills, which make them more well-adjusted for their forever homes. You will also be able to assess the cat's personality,
likes, and dislikes so that he/she can be better matched to the right
Fostering can sometimes be difficult and time-consuming. But the reward is tremendous! "These kitties may spend a short time in your home; however, they will
stay in your heart for a lifetime. Fostering is one of the most
rewarding volunteer experiences offered".
