    I adopted a new fur ball "MeatBall" from the SPCA a couple of months ago and it was the best decision ever! There has been a huge influx in cats needing to be adopted in my towns rescue shelters. It breaks my heart thinking of what might of happened to MeatBall if I hadn't adopted her. So I thought I would make a thread about Rescue Cats, showcasing how amazing they are :)

    Here is my wee devil, MeatBall :redheartpump:

    Thanks @raysmyheart! It's so nice to meet you too :) Haha she tends to curl up like a little meatball, and now I'm tempted to adopt a second cat and have MeatBall & Spaghetti

    @MeatBallCatMom - Welcome to TCS! Meatball looks like a real character, and as a special bonus - well, you know what Beethoven said:

    You're right, though - rescues are the best! Here are my current eleven rescues:

    Hello Meatball and @MeatBallCatMom :wave3:Welcome!!
    Meatball is adorable and seems well named. Our rescues are Capt KitKat Jack (who was 9 months when we found within hours of him being available for adoption). And Major Tom Snickers was feral born +taken into a rescue at 8 weeks). We were looking for a kitten similarly marked like Jack and found Tommy at 12 weeks. 63352.jpeg
    Jack is our photogenic "cool" gentle big guy, very kind and patient. Tommy is a mischief making snuggle bug who is constantly plotting his next stolen snack. IMG_20180216_202014.jpg IMG_20180305_172412.jpg
    I look for to seeing more pictures of Meatball!

    Welcome @MeatBallCatMom ! :wave3:

    We rescued a few great ones. All feral kittens. Peko and Bootsy were about 4 weeks old when I found them. Little Figgy was about 6 weeks old and a LOT harder to win over. That 2 weeks makes a huge difference. :hearthrob: :redheartpump: :hearthrob:

    AWW all these cute kitties!!
    Anyways, My handsome man Noob is not necessarily a rescue - he would have been surrendered by his originating family if I had not stepped up and took him in. Adopting him had to be the best, and possibly only!, good decision I made as a 20 year old LOL

    Two weeks ago, however, we adopted a rescue kitten from a great no-kill shelter 2 hours away from our home. We wanted to adopt locally, but after seeing her picture and reading her story, we couldn't get her off our minds. The adoption team notified us that she is very shy, and they were having a hard time finding her forever home. They just didn't find people as patient as us!

    Tatiana is the sweetest thing around! She gives kisses and adores her older brother. She is shy, but she's slowly coming out of her shell.
    20180520_231007.jpg
    We'd love to adopt more rescues! However, our landlord only allows 2 pets total in the home.

    Thanks :) i couldnt leave her.. it was downtown, and no one lets their cat roam downtown where i live so i was sure she was a stray, then when i got her to come to me i could see she wasnt doing too good. But the vet fixed her up and now shes my fluffy little princess :)

    Any time a stray comes to me, I put up signs everywhere, just like this:
