Thank you very much to all the people who have been sending us plush cat toys and food and toys for our foster cats via our Amazon.com WishList!

We had a rough Holiday Season and weren't able to send out our annual Holiday Card or do any fundraising. At times like these it makes all the difference to make sure donations keep coming in so we can continue to provide our lifesaving services not only to cats, but now we can also offer a chance to heal to the people of Newtown, CT.

GREAT NEWS!!!!!! Our fundraiser for Shorty was FILLED in 3.5 HOURS!!!!!!

Shorty on table sm.jpg

After a few days at the Vet, I'm happy to report that Shorty is “THRIVING” according to Dr. Ben. We couldn't be more pleased! Now we're helping find him a new forever home. Shorty is very sweet and friendly. He is FIV+ which means he has a compromised immune system. It is only contagious to other cats through a DEEP puncture wound. Shorty is too mellow to bite much of anything other than his food. Shorty needs to be on GRAIN FREE CANNED food to keep him from having another episode of urinary tract blockage.

Contact us at info@kittenassociates.org if you're interested in learning more about this gentle giant.

SAVE SHORTY!

We have en EMERGENCY situation with a kitty in Newtown, CT. His owner cannot afford Vet care for his cat, Shorty, who has a urinary tract blockage. This could be FATAL if not treated ASAP. His owner loves Shorty and realizes it would be better if Shorty had a family who could provide for his care in the days to come. Until we can find that new forever home, we need your help to raise funds to save Shorty's life.

Please help us make a little magic happen. We've GOT to raise the funds in the next 24 to 48 hrs if at all possible.

SHORTY's a sweet cat who needs our love and someday soon a new forever home, too. So if you have a mad crush on this orange and white cutie, let us know! We want to kiss that pink nose!

How Kitties for Kids Works

Kitten Associates is a small, home-foster based cat rescue group located in Newtown, CT. Due to the recent tragedy in our town, we're going to open our doors, by appointment only, to residents of this community. We know the healing power of time spent petting a cat or watching them play with a toy can bring to a child and his or her parents. Each session will last for 30 minutes, but longer periods or repeat visits can be requested. For safety reasons we can only allow children over the age of 4 to meet our foster cats and kittens.

After visiting our kittens we'll be giving your child a FREE plush kitty as a way for us to give back and say THANK YOU to the people of Newtown for letting us be a part of this community.

If your child is under the age of 4 and over 3 years of age, we can provide a plush kitty instead of having a visit with our real kitties.

We're here to help put smiles back on your child's face and we hope that in our way we can do that.

 

For more information or to set up a visit, just email us at info@kittenassociates.org

 

Unspeakable Tragedy & Offer to Help

Kitten Associates was born and raised in Sandy Hook, Connecticut-a district of Newtown, CT. As the Founder of K.A., and a resident of this town for over 21 years, I extend my deepest, most sincere condolences to the families of this town-the result of a tragic shooting at the Sandy Hook Elementary School this morning.

We're a tight-knit community where everyone is your friend. I know that won't change and perhaps it will help us be even closer. We realize that cat rescue may not line up with ways to help the residents of this town, but we'd like to offer to any families with children over the age of 4 to come visit our kittens and have some time playing with them and petting them. If that would help your child smile, don't hesitate to contact us at info@kittenassociates.org and we'll set up a time you can come visit our furry friends.

Congratulations, Tater Tot!

It's been seven long months since we first rescued Tater Tot from near death, living on the streets. Tater was covered in fleas, starving, full of parasites and sick with an upper respiratory tract infection.

After endless trips to the Vet and loving care from his foster mom, Maria, Tater survived and became one of our most cherished foster cats. A few days ago, Tater was finally adopted!

Thank you so much to Maria and the many people who sent us donations so we could provide for Tater and others like him. Without you we can't save lives!

Congratulations, Tater and his new family! We hope you'll be happy for a long time to come.

Meet Nico!

We can't believe this gorgeous cat was in a kill shelter on death row! Once we saw his photo we knew we had to save his life. Nico is 1-2 years old and a huge silver tabby Maine Coon mix. Add lovely green eyes, a big fluffy tail and cute white fur tipped paws and you've got yourself a knockout of a cat.

Nico has been completely vetted, microchipped and tested negative for Feline Leukemia and FIV. If you're looking for a chatty, playful, friendly companion, this boy is for you! Nico also fetches and loves to play with water out of the faucet-something that Maine Coon cats love to do.

Moo Kitty Lends a Helping Paw to K.A.!

“Moo Kitty Finds a Home”, the Mom's Choice Award winning book by Valerie Veltre, is the heartwarming tale of an adult cat who loses his home when his guardian passes away and is faced with the same real-life challenges that effect so many unwanted adult cats.

In honor of Adopt a Senior Pet Month, Moo Kitty and Kitten Associates have joined forces. The message of giving an adoptable adult cat a chance is not one to be taken lightly. Through the words of Ms. Veltre, penned for children, it's clear that adult cats have a lot to offer and should be treasured, not thrown away. That's why even though we don't have a shelter and taking on adults means we may have them for over a YEAR, Kitten Associates is determined to help all cats, regardless of their age or health issues.

During the month of November, for every purchase of Moo Kitty (at a special price of 20% off!), Kitten Associates will receive a $1.00 donation.

While that may not sound like a lot, $1.00 can buy cat food and in these trying times, every dollar matters.

With the Holidays upon us, we hope you'll consider purchasing a copy or two of this beautifully illustrated story for the children in your family or for your local school's library or donate a copy to a rescue group. Our senior cats deserve a loving home and Moo Kitty helps remind us of that.
