Almost Ready for Their Forever Homes!

It's hard to believe that our little rescues from Trumbull are almost old enough to be adopted! Turns out we have ALL girls in this litter of six, super-sweet and silly kittens.

Three of our six have extra toes! One has so many toes her paws look like baseball mitts! All the kittens have white fur in their ears, a scattering of white fur on their legs and bellies and two have cute white “eye lashes”!

The kittens will begin to be available for adoption around the first week of June. We'll be posting these sweeties on our Petfinder page in the next few days and begin the process of accepting applications. If you don't want to wait, you can fill in an application HERE.

Their mama, April, will also be looking for a forever home, too. April is very friendly and sweet and the best, most loving mama we've ever had. She has striking eyes, like to “chat” and needs some time to regain her former beauty and a healthy weight since she gave so much of herself to her kittens. Contact Animals in Distress if you're interested in April.

Emergency Rescue Times Four

Five tiny kittens were living outdoors with their feral mom. They lived on scraps in terrible conditions. Even though we don't have enough room in our foster program, we knew we had to act fast and worry about logistics later. As it was, by the time we were able to intervene, two kittens were gone, never to be seen again. Our hearts were broken, but we had to press on to save the others because they were all getting sick.

We've put together an emergency fundraiser to help this family. The little orange kitten, a girl, is very small for her age and may need extra Vet care. If you can help, please use the ChipIn widget below. Every dollar adds up and no donation is too small. Your donation is also TAX-DEDUCTIBLE

Help Fill Our Kitten's Bellys!

The six kittens, and their mama, April, are all doing well. The kittens just turned four weeks old and are starting to lap at formula on their own. We're so happy to see the kittens thrive, but the older they get, the more costs will be involved with their care and we need your help.

Use the ChipIn Widget, below, to make a donation for April's family. They'll need vetting (times seven) in the next few weeks and supportive care like cotton balls to help them eliminate, paper towels and cleaning supplies, kitten formula, baby food and new kitten-specific toys.

Our Latest Rescues! A Mama & Six kittens!

Kitten Season is here! We just took in our first family, a mama and her six kittens. The kittens were born on March 26, 2012 and are just 12 days old today. Three kittens have opened their eyes and we can't wait until their siblings join them.

This family hails from Trumbull and were living outdoors. We just couldn't let them stay there knowing how cold it gets each night. We hope you'll join us in welcoming our newest additions and give us a hand in naming these cuties!

If you have any suggestions, contact us at info@kittenassociates.org

THANK YOU HALO® & Freekibble

27534_10150173275380417_1631_n.jpg

Our friends at Halo and Freekibble are breaking the big news we've been dying to share! Thanks to their generosity, Kitten Associates, is going to be the recipient of 2,500 cans of lovely grain free cat food-or almost 900 POUNDS of food! We're not only beyond thrilled to know we can feed our foster kittens for the rest of the year, but we'll also share our bounty with another local rescue! Stay tuned for photos of the arrival-due in on Tuesday, along with more about this marvelous company and their devotion to helping rescues and shelters across the Country!

King, Transformed

It's been a little over a month since King (Arthur) was rescued off the streets. This amazing creature survived a serious birth defect leaving him to hobble along on his front paws-his back paws never developed. His back legs are a and inch or two short and end in either a callus or a partial paw pad.

Meeting King.jpg
King, the day he was rescued.

But King is a survivor and nothing gets him down. While in foster care King has thrived. His once filthy coat is shiny and clean. His body is no longer too thin now that he's put on some weight. King's been to an Orthopedic Vet and given a clean bill of health. There's really nothing we need to do other than find King a great home.

2.22 Lookin Great.jpg
King's amazing transformation. Yes, it IS the same cat!

King loves three things: People, Belly Rubs & Other Cats. We want to find him a very special home with all of those things, plus this home MUST have either wall to wall carpeting OR LOTS of big area rugs. King cannot easily get around on wood, ceramic or vinyl floors. The thicker surface of a rug or carpeting allows him to walk on all fours, instead of only on his front legs.

If you're interested in giving a VERY sweet, loving, 1 year old kitty a home, please contact us at info@kittenassociates.org for more information.

Our Most Emotional Rescue Ever!

Even though we don't' have a shelter and know it will be a long time before we can find him a home, once we heard about a kitty with no hind paws, living on the streets in a bad neighborhood, we had to jump into action.

Meet King Arthur-or King, as we call him. He's a little over a year old and has had a very tough life living at a Palette Factory. We don't know if he's deformed or survived a terrible accident, but this cat has been getting around on his front legs for most of his life.

Rub mah belly.jpg

When we rescued, King yesterday, we thought he would be feral, but turns out he was just the opposite. All this cat wants is love, a safe place to live and some good food.


©2012 Maria S. Our first look at King in motion. It's sad to watch but so very sweet at the end. You will fall in love with this boy! Beware!

We're grateful that we can provide that for King, but due to his condition we're going to have to get him to a Vet for tests and x-rays and possibly a specialist or two. We want King to have the best life possible and to be comfortable and pain-free and we're hoping you can help!

If you'd like to help with King's upcoming Vet care, and care for another kitty at the Palette factory we'd like to rescue, please use the Chipin, above. Your donation is Tax Deductible. Thank you!

Our Latest Rescue & New BFF-Jackson Galaxy!

Normally we don't promote television shows on our web site, but this is a special occasion. Tomorrow, Saturday Jan, 7th at 8pm EST on Animal Planet begins the second series of “My Cat From Hell.” hosted by the master of cat-listening, Jackson Galaxy. His deep understanding of cat behavior helps him guide cat-guardians in how to better live with their troublesome cats. Although not all cats behave badly and even if yours doesn't, you should watch this show.

We had the pleasure of speaking with Mr. Galaxy about his passion for saving cats lives. If you'd like to read the article you can find it HERE.

The day we did the interview, we also ended up rescuing this big, white, love-bug who we named, Jackson, in honor of Mr Galaxy. Jackson's a little over a year old and is already neutered and has all his shots. Jackson will be available for adoption in a few weeks. If you're interested in him, please contact us at info@kittenassociates.org

We're Having a White Christmas!

Who wouldn't want to have a White Christmas? Now you can with our latest arrivals! These four sublime siblings are sweeter than sugar and white as snow. Three of them have a delicate brush stroke of grey on their head. They look so much alike we're not even sure which one is which!

All Four Kittens_med a.jpg

What we DO know is these six month old sweethearts were orphaned when their mother was killed when they were only a few days old. Bottle fed by one of our fantastic foster mamas, these kittens survived and thrived in her loving care.
