As you take time to reflect on what you're thankful for, we hope it will include a gift to rescues like ours in honor of the work we do every day 365/7/24. Our life-saving mission cannot be achieved without your love and support and today is a great time to show that love.

Please consider a gift in honor of a beloved pet or family member (we'll send a card acknowledging your gift if requested) or a gift just because you love what we're doing and want to share that during this special time of the year.

You can make a donation using the icon to the right that says "Donate Today" or go to our Donate page.

Gifts sent as checks can also be mailed to Kitten Associates, P.O. Box 354, Newtown, CT 06470-0354 or if you enjoy shopping, visit our WishList where you'll find gifts you can choose for our kittens that fit any budget (and we ALWAYS NEED CAT FOOD!).

Thank you and Happy Holidays!

2014 Dogtime Pettie Award for Best Cause Blog Goes to...

Shocked, honored and delighted to win our first Pettie Award! Thank you Dogtime Media and all our friends who voted for our little rescue and who believe in what we do.

We'd also like to Congratulate and Thank Ingrid King, who writes The Conscious Cat and Angie Holland Bailey, who writes Texts from Mittens who also won in their categories. Part of their award is a $1000.00 donation to any rescue or shelter and they both chose Kitten Associates. This means that today we have $3000.00 we can put towards our rescue efforts.

We couldn't be more pleased and grateful for all your support. THANK YOU ALL!


For Freya

If you're visiting our web site today, chances are you know about Freya, the little 4-week old kitten who has a serious birth defect that makes it nearly impossible for her to eliminate. We're helping our friends at Animals in Distress raise funds for Freya so she can get the CT scan, blood work, radiographs and eventual surgery that may give her the quality of life she deserves.

We've already provided a grant of $1000.00 to Newtown Veterinary Services (NVS) to go towards Freya's care. We expect we'll need to raise an additional $1500-$2000 over the next few days. We're asking Freya's friends to please donate to our General Fund-the donation widget is to the right. ALL donations that come in this week will go directly to Freya's care. If there is any additional funding we will bank it for her followup visits.

Thanks to NVS for supporting rescue efforts by giving rescues a generous discount, which certainly helps a great deal to lesson the burden of fundraising and makes it possible for us to help kittens like Freya.

We're sending our love and prayers to little Freya. We don't know if she will be a candidate for surgery or if she will have complications. All we can do is proceed thoughtfully and respectfully with regards to her future—which we all hope will be a happy and healthy one.

Sweet Dreams R Olson
