Right now there are 10 cats tucked away in all different foster houses and condos down here in South Florida, just waiting for their rides to their new forever homes. Black cats, big cats, tiny kittens and delicate tabbies and a pretty Siamese... We have a beautiful herd of rescue kitties, all saved from animal control!
This time, our fabulous friends at Forever Home Feline Ranch in Illinois have stepped up and offered to take in seven cats, all of which will find their forever homes very quickly up there! We are so excited! That's seven cats saved from that sad shelter... who are going to be off to the most wonderful lives ever! Hurray!

No way we could let her stay like that, poor baby! Luckily, Cutehead Mary C. saw this and just knew Pookie was meant to be part of her family. She quickly left a message saying she'd love to have her... and we quickly made the move to bust Pookie out of the shelter the next day! Mary is in Illinois, too, so Pookie will be in the car with the seven up there! She's now in a wonderful foster home with Cutehead Carie P. (who fostered senior sisters Sera and Chloe!) and she is doing fantastic! Pookie is getting spayed today, so send good thoughts her way.

|Puck. This is the face we all fell in love with.|

And last but not least, adorable little fuzzball Eugene. Eugene was at Miami Dade Animal Services (our first Miami rescue kitty!) with his two brothers. Both of them were rescued, but Eugene was left behind. Being a black kitten in a bad place like that was not going to work in his favor... but it turns out we have even more great friends! Cutehead Leigh G. (who adopted Zoro, Garfield, Count Blackula and Midnight!) saw tiny Eugene and couldn't let the inevitable happen to him. So she sent me a message saying she'd like to add him to her crew! Whooo hooo! Eugene will be heading to Alabama.
|Oh hai. Fiercely cute Eugene here!|

Whew! Now on to the fun part. These cats all need rides! The maps of their routes are below. If you are along the way and would like to help out, please fill out this form so I have your contact info and what city you live in. The more volunteers we have, the more kitties we can help!
