2 Office kittens and 2 ‘friends’ going to Del Moines!

The two office kitten girls and 2 other kittens who were just ‘turned into the vet’ are leaving tomorrow for Del Moines, IA. We have 2 happy families anxiously awaiting their new bundles of joy.

The other 2 office cats are heading out next week. And the black one has been adopted by
a local lady who just lost her beloved cat.

So happy days for Aruban Kitten rescue! Many thanks to Yessy, Michel and Mark of the Cafe Capri for
making this all possible. Thank you to everyone who has brought down supplies to make these flights

Here is our Facebook page with the pictures we took of 2 great friends to our organization visiting the babies:

Balashi’s story

A great family staying at the ABC fell in love with a cat they named “Balashi”. Their 11 year old son is completely head over heels in love with him and asked him mom if he could use his ‘Aruba money’ to take him home. Only problem is that they are flying Spirit airlines which is the only airline that does not allow pets at all (including service animals). We put the word out that we were looking for someone to bring Balashi back to NJ and his new family. A wonderful lady, Deb, got in touch with us and she brought Balashi back to his new home after he spent a week in boarding. What a wonderful story. Balashi has totally made himself comfortable in his new home and is getting lots of pats and love!

I will put pictures up as soon as I can because there are quite a few of them and it’s not as easy as facebook to put up pictures!

Office mom and babies are now in a safe place!

Here is mom and kittens who were found in an office. We are looking for homes for mom and kittens. We are working on what their age is and figure 3 weeks – but are waiting for the vet to tell us. They are now at the Conteras vet in Noord for safe keeping. If you are interested in adopting anyone, please contact us at info@arubakitten.org. Please contact via email verses a comment because sometimes it’s hard to determine if a comment is a spammer or legit post.

Office Mom and Kittens

We have been in contact with a very nice business owner who moved into a new place to find a mom with 5 kittens living there. They will be moved to Conteras vet for a few weeks until the kittens are ready for adoption. As you can see in the picture, Mom found a really good hiding place for them. If you are inter…ested in adopting one of these babies or mom, please contact me for details. Also a special thank you to Yessy for going and picking them up for us! Yessy has been such a godsend!

Oscar is now Canadian!

Oscar has made it to Canada! He was so good on the plane that Sue was amazed. It seems that all our cats know that they are going to a good place and are on their best behavior on the plane. Here is a picture of Sue, Oscar and Yessy from the vet. It seems that Oscar was quite the charmer and had stolen a few hearts while at the hotel! Sue is so happy with Oscar and he’s a very good boy. Thanks to everyone involved!

Hotel Cat Rescue and Orphan Rescue will continue on!!!

We are so happy to announce this!

Aruba Kitten Rescue is proud to announce that we have made arrangements to continue our hotel cat rescue program. Carriers and harnesses can be dropped off and picked up at Veterinaire Kliniek Noord which is past the light in Noord and at Contreras Veterinary Services which is very close to the hotels too. The vets will also assist with doing the checkup and issuing the paperwork needed. All proceeds will go to spaying and neutering cats of Aruba which is sorely needed. We are also continuing our orphan kitten program by supplying KMR (kitten milk replacement) and bottles at the vets for fostering kittens who are not of the age of eating food yet.

We are in desperate need of the following:
- Carriers (soft)
- Small harnesses and leashes

Please mark all items “aruba kitten rescue”

Eric De Cuba and the Contreras’ family have been wonderful these past years assisting us with our adoptions and we are so glad that both vets has agreed to continue this wonderful program. We would like to also thank Kiki from FCA for helping us out with our efforts too!

Here is the location, map, hours and information needed to the Veterinaire Kliniek Noord :

One special Rescue

One last rescue: While staying here at La Cabana, Susan met Oscar (the name she gave him) who was very hungry and mooching food from the guests on the main floor. Over the past ten days she had been feeding him real cat food, and he’s been lapping it up. She spent much of her evenings with him by the poolside. He is a dear cat, very friendly and affectionate and she fell for him. She was mourning the loss of her cat Emily but waited too long to decide and she left for Canada heartbroken. Now thanks to help from Kiki from Foundation Cas Animal , Contreras Vets (thanks Yessy) and us – she is flying in on Friday to pick him up!

All the Calico Girls left for the US on Friday!

A Miracle happened for the Calico Girls!

Pickles, Sweets, Toots and Edna fates were unsure. One of our strong supporters of our rescue operation, Lora, decided that she would take all four girls to Iowa with her so we could make sure they got good homes. On Friday, with help from her girls Abby and Alisha, she flew the kittens back to the US.   The girls were our ‘good will ambassadors’ and told everyone about how wonderful it is to rescue a cat from Aruba.   They also made sure that the kittens were happy and safe.

Toots had a small medical issue and another great supporter Andrea decided to adopt her and drove 5 hours each way to the Miami airport just to pick her up.

We are so grateful to these wonderful women, girls and husbands for creating a ‘miracle’ for us. These little kittens had been though a lot and we are so happy to know that they have the chance they deserve to be in good loving homes.

We love you guys and words will never express the happiness both Mick and I feel about you all! Would also like to thank our DC group for offering support to everyone  during their travels which had a few snags to say the least.
