Bengal Rescue Update 35 Now 45

The 35 are now 45…

Here’s what the count is:

20 whole adult males of all ages

12 whole adult females of all ages

9 kittens

4 already neutered males.

I hope to have more pictures up within the week.

I have made appointments at the clinic for October. The whole adult cats will be getting fixed in batches. 7-10 cats will be brought in, according to what the clinic can handle. The kittens are not ready for their surgery, they will be fixed in a few months when they are older. If you can help us with this rescue, please send donations through PayPal to: donate@bengalrescuenetwork.org and write in the memo or subject head that it’s for California. We are a 5013C organization, so whatever you donate can be written off.

We have received fabulous donations from people. We so appreciate it. We’re not quite where we need to be yet. We have just enough to cover the spay’/neutering, but we need to buy hard plastic carriers for the cats. The clinic wants the cats transported in hard, plastic carriers.  And we need some money for food. We have gotten some food in which is wonderful, at this point we have enough for about one month.

We can also use another person or two to help with transporting the cats to the clinic and then back again. It’s about a one hour drive to the clinic. There are 4 different dates scheduled in October. It means early mornings, since the clinic wants them between 7-7:30 AM. We also need foster homes and good adopters.

Again, thank you everyone for your support, both financially and morally. I will post pictures when they come in, both here and on the California Bengal Cat Rescue site.

Segue to Rescue

Even though the intent of my blog is to focus on the wonderment of cat behavior, I am going to segue into another part of my life. Some of you know that I’m the coordinator for California Bengal Cat Rescue. I hate asking for help for a rescue situation, it just doesn’t seem right for me to use my blog for this. But I am…

Today’s blog is a plea for help, it’s a rescue blog.

I’m in the process of coordinating a major rescue. 35 Bengals are being surrendered to me. They come from a breeder who has been hit with severe economic hardship. She is surrendering all of her babies to us. It’s really hard for her to do this because she adores each and every one of her little cats, but she knows it’s the best thing for them.

Each of these lovely cats need to be spayed/neutered before they go either to foster homes or their forever homes. I have located a low cost clinic, run by Best Friends Sanctuary who can speuter them at a reasonable rate: $35 for the boys $45 for the girls.  We need financial help desperately! We have some funds, but not enough to cover all 35 of them.

We also need either hard plastic carriers donated to us, or money for 15 carriers. The carriers will be for transporting the cats in three groups to the clinic for their speutering.

We will also need help with transporting the cats to and from the clinic. The cats are in Lancaster, north east of Los Angeles. The clinic is in the Los Angeles area. I’m not sure but I think it’s about a one hour drive.

We also need foster homes and great adopters.

I have included pictures of 4 of the cats. As you can see, they are beautiful. One of the cats, Sandy, is a Supreme Grand Champion. Each cat has his and her own story, each cat is special and needs and deserves a great and loving home. If you can help us with this rescue, please send donations through PayPal to: donate@bengalrescuenetwork.org and write in the memo or subject head that it’s for California. We are a 5013C organization, so whatever you donate can be written off.

Thank you so much for helping.

I promise, my next blog will be about cat behavior.
