Featured Feline Friday (OSCatR)- Charlie

This week’s Featured Feline Friday from the Ottawa Stray Cat Rescue is the lovely Charlie.

This sweet momma is in need of some help.

Charlie vet

Charlie came into care while she was pregnant. She is very friendly and affectionate. She’s very tiny and was born without a tail. Charlie is playful, curious, and she loves to chase little foil balls that she carries around in her mouth while chirping away. She really enjoys being brushed and will pat your hand until you scratch her ears.

While in care she gave birth to four wonderful kittens who have all been adopted. Now she’s looking for her forever home.

Featured Feline Friday (OSCatR)- Alun

I’ve decided to start another weekly feature; Featured Feline Friday! For now it will be cats from the Ottawa Stray Cat Rescue but in the future I may start a second Featured Feline Friday post showcasing cats from other rescues.

Our debut cat is a mature gentleman named Alun!

Alun is a super sweet, laid back kind of guy. He is calm and easy going, and being a little bit mature he is not all that interested in toys. This guy loves his canned food, and has really enjoyed going to bed with a full belly every night. Alun has melted the hearts of everyone hes met, will he melt yours too?

Oh we almost forgot to mention, Alun is polydactyl! You just have to love those big pawed kitties!!

Thanks for Giving Adoption Event

Looking for something to do in Ottawa this sunday?

Then you should consider heading to a Pet Valu store for the Ottawa Stray Cat Rescue‘s Thanks for the Giving adoption event. They are happening from 11am – 3pm at the Pet Valu’s on Greenbank, Merivale,  Alta Vista, and Beechwood (where I’ll be helping out).

Besides all the cute cats for adoption there is also merc from the OSCatR for sale to help raise some much needed funds to help the cats in care.  Just check out the pic below of Alun… he’s looking for a home and helping sell merc!

A Busy Saturday of Helping Animals

Tomorrow DRC has a full day of helping out animals in need.  I’ll be starting off the day at the PunkOttawa Fleamarket where I’ll be a vendor, and then off to a local show I organized called Titties 4 Kitties 3!

Both events benefit The Ottawa Stray Cat Rescue where I volunteer. While the fleamarket also benefits the Wild Bird Care Center, and Titties 4 Kitties 3 also benefits SafePet Ottawa.

For more details on both of these events check out the above links to the Facebook Event Pages.

The Ottawa Stray cat rescue helps get stray cats off the street and into loving homes via a foster care program. They also do TNR (Trap, Neuter, Release) to help control feral cat colony populations.

SafePet Ottawa is a new organization in the city that fosters the beloved pets of VAW (Violence Against Women) victims until they are safe and settled in a new life.

Rescue Block Party Was A Success!!

Rescue Block Party hosted by Chew-That in Ottawa. It was to help raise funds for the Ottawa Stray Cat Rescue, Sit With Me, and the Ottawa Dog Rescue. It was a hot afternoon but a great time was had by all. Especially all the puppies in attendance. They even got to take pics with a firetruck! Only saw one cat there though, and he was amazing. A huge Main Coon named Ranger. He was bigger than some of the dogs I met and he was the runt of his litter. Beautiful and majestic guy.  I managed to take a few pics while there, many of them of the same little guy who I would have adopted if I could have. All of the adoptable animals had  bandannas on saying they were adoptable and what organization they were with. This one little guy was so small that his bandanna turned into a cape. He was all sorts of super!

Rescue Block Party July 19th

For anyone in the Ottawa area here’s a great event in support of three local rescue  groups.  I’ll definitely be there! I’ll be doing some baking (ginger cookies & cupcakes) and may have some kitty toys for sale.

I just wanted to share with you a bit of info about a wonderful organization here in Ottawa that I just started volunteering with.

The Ottawa Stray Cat Rescue

OSCatR is  no-kill, volunteer-run cat rescue based in Ottawa, Ontario, established in 2011. OSCatR does not have a shelter or central facility and all cats are in loving foster homes allowing the cats more freedom to be cats and maximizing the use of funds and donations.

OSCatR feels that feral cats deserve the best life possible, even if that life is outdoors. Community members make this possible by feeding and monitoring feral cats, which are humane-trapped by OSCatR, spayed/neutered and released back into the colony. OSCatR does not test for FIV or FeLV; instead, we spay/neuter to prevent the spread of these diseases as much as possible.
