Cats Dumped In The Cold – Ten Lives Club Rescues!

Emery Park “Aristo” Cats

Around 2:30pm this past Thursday, January 30, a woman was in Emery Park walking her two dogs when she saw a dark colored SUV pull up close to the woods.  As she watched, the hatch opened and someone got back into the vehicle on the passenger side.  The SUV quickly drove away.  As she walked closer to where she had seen the vehicle pull over, she saw 6 cats sitting in the snow – scared, shaking with cold and confused.  One of the cats, a black kitty, was so frightened it quickly ran into the woods.

The woman called 911 who referred her to the SPCA.  The line was busy at the SPCA.  As she was desperately trying to get help for the cats, two people happened to drive by and began to help rescue the five kitties remaining.  They managed to get them loaded into their car and tried searching for the other cat who hid in the woods without success.  One of them knew a volunteer at Ten Lives Club and called our shelter explaining the urgent situation.

All five kitties were taken to our shelter in Hamburg, New York where they were thoroughly examined.  Thankfully, all of them were healthy and appeared to have been well fed and living recently in a home. The Ten Lives Club shelter vet will alter them, vaccinate, etc. to prepare them for adoption into loving forever homes.

Without the quick response and kindness of these people, five beautiful, healthy cats were saved from certain death.  The recent temperatures in our area have been in the single digits with wind chills of -25.  How long can a cat or dog – especially those who are used to living inside – survive in those conditions?  No shelter, no food or water, no way to keep from freezing to death.  A horrible and cruel way to die.

Unfortunately, the perpetrators of this unspeakable act of cruelty could not be identified.  The first witness was too far away to read the license plate number of the vehicle before it sped away.  At least she was able to get a description of the SUV and hopefully these criminals will be brought to justice.

In the meantime, the kitties – who were named after characters from the Disney movie “The Aristocats” – are in the loving care of Ten Lives Club. Their names are Duchess, Marie, Scat Cat, Tilou and Thomas O’Malley!

They will be available for adoption at our main shelter in Hamburg, New York by Friday, February 7.   They will be spayed/neutered, vaccinated, tested for FIV & FeLuek, treated for fleas/worms and thoroughly examined by our shelter vet.  All adoptions also include a certificate for a free vet visit within 10 days of adoption from an extensive list of veterinarians in Buffalo and surrounding suburbs.

But to prepare the cats for adoption and care for them until they find their forever homes will be costly for Ten Lives Club – at least $1,000 or more.

Mocha, a beautiful “chocolate” Domestic Long Hair with big green-gold eyes, had a Meet & Greet with prospective purparents this evening!  It went very well & we are hoping for the best.  Everyone who sees her thinks she is the most gorgeous, uniquely colored cat they’ve ever seen! And, of course, she’s absolutely the sweetest kitty EVER!

Melanie is a very sweet, very pretty little 8 month old female who loves to play & be loved!

Robin is a quiet, affectionate tabby who’s 2 years old.  She’s very thin & had kittens before she was spayed at Ten Lives Club.  She needs some TLC & some meat on her bones!

Jasper was featured on Channel 7 News at 6 on Friday!  He is a very active, beautiful black long hair domestic.  He’s very curious & tends to get into some trouble because he needs to investigate EVERYTHING & keeps us all on our toes!  He needs to find a home with lots of ACTION & Excitement.  Even though he’s 1 1/2, he’s still a kitten with a LOT of energy~!

All of these kitties get along well with each other and are very gentle & sweet.  Can you help them find their furever homes?
