Jersey City Free Books serves the entire community — including those on four legs! We need your help so that we can help both cats and people. Click on this Link for the Amazon Wish List or donate at our GoFundMe Page. Even just dropping off a bag of kitty litter (non-clumping) when the shop is open will mean a lot. If everyone reading even gave SOMETHING, we’d be well on the way to providing for suffering cats left to fend for themselves.

The picture above shows Little Blake the Ouija Cat, one of our success stories, on August 20, 2012. That’s the day she was rescued after being abandoned on Central Ave. near the post office.

Too weak to stand, the very young kitten was covered with fleas. She also had an eye infection, ear mites, ringworm and intestinal parasites.

Luckily, the tyke was small enough and the day was warm enough so that her entire body could be dipped in the bathroom sink. The fleas still on the head were carefully removed with a fine comb. And that was the easy part! The other conditions required considerable care and the application of medication.

The third picture is from a couple of weeks later. Strength and confidence growing, Blake here had commandeered the recycling bin as her abode.

This picture is from only six months later. Now Blake is a regal lady, as she still is today.

In April, we saved these kittens from a one-way trip to the junk yard. The little crew were in an old car that was about to be towed away. Jersey City Cat Rescue took them all in along with their mother.

Luckily her recovery was speedy, but the bill was $184.

These are just a few of the many cats that Jersey City Free Books has saved. More need help!

Jersey City Cat Rescue shared Metro Cat Rescue's Rescue kitten eats solid food for the first time. ...

This rescue kitten is eating solid food for the first time. A Metro Cat Rescue volunteer learned that a neighborhood cat was expecting. We took her in so the kittens would not be born outside and so grow up feral. This is one of the babies. They can look forward to long lives in happy homes, instead of a miserable existence of cold, danger and disease. * * * Take a look at the Photos here on the Metro Cat Rescue Facebook Page and you'll see just some of the many cats that we've helped. The dream of Metro Cat Rescue is to establish a facility to provide care for homeless kittens and cats with easily treated but contagious conditions -- those innocents that now elsewhere regularly are made to die. Sadly, a lack of funds has kept Metro Cat Rescue's goal on a distant horizon. Without the necessary resources, each day there are cats that we can't help. Indeed, last summer, there was a dip in donations and adoptions. I would not let the cats go hungry, so I scraped by eating little more than bread, rice and beans myself. Metro Cat Rescue needs your help! We are DROWNING in bills for food, medical costs and supplies. Click on the Link to DONATE. If everyone reading this gave SOMETHING, we’d be well on the way to providing for suffering cats left to fend for themselves. THANK YOU! www.gofundme.com/metro-cat-rescue Giving any amount will be a huge help. Unfortunately, right now we have no idea what our funding will be next month — or even next week. Helping to make it possible for Metro Cat Rescue to plan for the future will mean so many more kittens and cats will be saved. Please do support Metro Cat Rescue! All too often I've had to spend my own grocery money to make sure that the cats were well fed. If Metro Cat Rescue had better facilities and a used SUV or van for transportation, there's so much more that we could do. MetroCatRescue@gmail.com is the address to use to donate through PayPal.

Little Pat, one of the new rescue kittens, has discovered the pillow. Little Pat was a feral kitten. A Metro Cat Rescue volunteer saved this poor little soul from a vehicle wheel well after a very heavy rain. The kitten became separated from mom during the storm. Born outdoors, the kitten is quite wild and needs to be kept in an enclosed area until she is socialized and can be handled. If just let loose in the room now, the concern is that the baby would hide in some inaccessible place. If you look closely, you'll see that there is another kitten in the picture. Sunny is Little Pat's roomie. Sunny is learning to trust people, but now still hides in the box. * * * Take a look at the Photos here on the Metro Cat Rescue Facebook Page and you'll see just some of the many cats that we've helped.
