When introducing a new cat to your current feline friend, remember that close feline friendships can take anywhere from seconds to months. As long as your cats are not fighting in bloody brawls, you can let them hiss, growl and chase until they figure out their hierarchy. Please keep in mind though, there is a proper way to introduce cats, you can not just put them in the same room together for the first time and walk away. Rather the introduction needs to be gradual and you should be present. For more details on the proper way of introducing cats, please feel free to drop us an e-mail.


Cat Urine Odor Removal Recipe

For anyone that has problems in their house with the odor from cat urine, particularly on carpeting, this is the recipe for you! Believe me, I've tried almost every product out on the market today and honestly haven't had one work for me yet. This is a very simple recipe to make, the ingredients are easy to find and it really eliminates the cat urine odor! To make a single batch, you will need 12 ounces of 3% Hydrogen Peroxide, 1/2 teaspoon of Ajax dishwashing liquid soap, 1 1/2 teaspoon Arm & Hammer baking soda and a empty plastic spray bottle to put solution in once it is mixed up. If you have a large area that needs odor removal, you may need to double or triple the recipe. Mix all three ingredients together using a plastic spoon (not metal). Once it is mixed pour into your empty spray bottle. Always discard unused portion, because the oxygen in the peroxide mixed with these other products can make it all bubble up and out of the container leaving a big mess. Now for the fun part. You have to find all the old stains and odors, otherwise your cat will continue to go back to the same spot. Once you find the areas of urine, spray the spot with the solution evenly, making sure to saturate the carpet and the padding under the carpet (you may want to do a spot test on your carpet or furniture first, but it has never left a stain on anything I have used it on.) Once the whole urine area is saturated block it off to keep people or your pets from walking on it until it is completely dry. Do not blot up any of the formula because the stains need to be saturated thoroughly and left to air dry on its own. After it has dried completely, vacuum spot to remove any white powder left over from the baking soda. Scotch guarded carpet takes a while to absorb the liquid, but after it sits for a awhile it will absorb into the carpet and padding. You may have to pour a little extra solution on this type of carpet. This solution has worked on both fresh and old odors for me. The main ingredient in this recipe is peroxide, it works by bringing the urine to the top of the carpet and is removed by the oxygen molecules. Just a note, the smell of the urine may get worse when you saturate it with the solution before it gets better. The solution is literally pulling all the hidden odors to the top of the surface so that it can be dissolved for good. I just had to share this recipe because it really worked well for me!

ASPCA Pet Food Recall Center

Please Spay and Neuter Your Pets!!!!!

Did you know each day 10,000 humans are born in the U.S. and each day 70,000 puppies and kittens are born. As long as these birth rates exist, there will never be enough homes for all the animals. As a result, millions of healthy, loving cats, dogs, kittens and puppies face early deaths as a form of animal control. Others are left to fend for themselves against automobiles, the elements, animals and cruel humans. What can you do to stop the suffering? Spay and neuter your pets!

An unspayed female cat, her mate and all of their offspring, producing 2 litters per year, with 2.8 surviving kittens per litter can total:

  • 1 year .. 12 cats
  • 2 years ...... 67 cats
  • 3 years ........ 376 cats
  • 4 years .......... 2,107 cats
  • 5 years ............ 11,800 cats

*~HISTORY OF S.W.R.O.~*

"WHISKERS"

Please report Pet Abuse on: www.Pet-Abuse.com

The amazing cat that started it all is "WHISKERS" (see "Whiskers" pictured above). He was rescued from an abusive owner. Though he was a trusting and sweet boy, that did not stop his owner from abusing him so severely that he was paralyzed for more than ten weeks. Whiskers injuries included a broken back, cracked ribs, broken teeth and several visible abrasions. When this poor baby was rescued, he was thin and dirty and in tremedous pain. He had been kept in a cold, porcelain bathtub by his owner because he was paralyzed and could not make it to his litter box. To complicate matters, "Whiskers" has a damaged retina, most likely inflicted from blunt trauma to his eye according to the vet who treated him. Happily, though, "Whiskers" is now SAFE at home with the founder of S.W.R.O. Hence, the story of our mascot cat who is the inspiration behind Saved Whiskers Rescue Organization, Inc. ...there are too many silent "Whiskers" suffering every minute, of every day. It is our hope that with your help and support we can make a difference with our rescue.

Saved Whiskers Rescue Organization, Inc. (S.W.R.O.) was founded by Pamela J. Ott, a certified veterinary technician, and was incorporated May 6, 2003. S.W.R.O. is a non-profit organization, dedicated to saving the lives of countless felines by rescuing injured, abused, abandoned and homeless cats and kittens, providing veterinary care and shelter through our foster care program, until they can be placed into permanent homes.

Saved Whiskers Rescue Organization, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization as recognized by the Internal Revenue Service and donations are completly tax exempt. S.W.R.O is an all-volunteer organization which relies solely on monetary donations. None of the volunteers within our organization are compensated employees. All our are funds go directly toward the care of the cats we rescue. S.W.R.O. is supported by volunteers and concerned citizens who believe that all living creatures have a value in and of themselves and are deserving of an acceptable quality of life. So many of these unfortunate animals are victims of pet overpopulation, therefore, this lifesaving work that S.W.R.O. does is critical!

You must be at least 21 years old to adopt a cat from Saved Whiskers Rescue Organization, Inc. . Cats can live on an average of 15 to 20 years.

*~S.W.R.O.'s ADOPTION PROCESS~*

CLICK THE LINK BELOW TO BEGIN OUR ADOPTION APPLICATION

S.W.R.O.'S ADOPTION APPLICATION

Once you have chosen the cat that you would like to adopt, please take some time to fill out the required adoption application either on-line or by calling us to receive an application by mail or fax. Please answer all questions honestly.

Once S.W.R.O. receives your application, it will be reviewed and references will be checked. It may take a couple of days from the time you complete your adoption application until your new kitty can come home. The length of time can depend on how easy it is to reach veterinary and other references. If you rent your home, we will need some evidence that cats are permitted where you live, and that there are no limitations on cat ownership that would conflict with our adoption policies.

Once your application is approved, we will set up an appointment either to bring the cat to your home or meet you at a convenient place to complete the adoption process. In order to complete the adoption process an adoption agreement needs to be read, agreed to and signed by the person responsible for the adopted pet. Veterinary records for the adopted cat will be provided as part of the adoption process. You will need a cat carrier to safely transport the cat at all times.

If you are approved for an adoption, we will ask that you purchase the same type of food that the cat has been eating. If you wish to feed the cat a different type of food later on, you will need to transition to the new food over a 10 day period otherwise the cat may experience gastrointestinal upsets. We do recommend using a premium food, such as Chicken Soup for the Cat Lover's Soul for all cats and kittens-good nutrition helps maintain the cat's health, coat, and teeth over its lifetime. Premium food is especially important for preventing urinary tract infections that can cause a cat a great deal of pain and even death.

"CHICKEN SOUP FOR THE CAT LOVER'S SOUL"

S.W.R.O. recommends feeding Chicken Soup For The Cat Lover's Soul because it contains fresh, natural, whole ingredients from each of the five food groups: meat, dairy, fruit, grain and vegetables, to provide a balanced, nutritious and healthful diet for your cat. Chicken Soup For The Cat Lover's Soul is formulated with added antioxidant vitamins, and is rich in Omega 6 and Omega 3 Essential Fatty Acids for a silky coat and optimum health. For all the stages of your cat's life, Chicken Soup For The Cat Lover's Soul exclusively uses only the highest quality protein, foods that you yourself would eat. Chicken Soup For The Cat Lover's Soul is a pet food to take advantage of fresh whole ingrediants to create a cat food unequaled in nutrition and health benefits. Wholesome Food for a Healthier Cat!

ADOPTION FEES
Solution Graphics
Cat or Kitten:$85
Pair of Cats or Kittens:$135
Surrender Fee Per Cat:$100

The animals available for adoption from S.W.R.O. come from a variety of sources. All our animals are examined and treated by a licensed veterinarian and their health is continually monitored while under our care. Our adoption fee includes all age-appropriate vaccinations, examinations, deworming, nail trims, feline leukemia/FIV testing, Advantage Flea topical, and the AVID microchip.

If necessary, treatment for ticks, ear mites or any other aliment will also be done. All cats and kittens rescued by S.W.R.O. will be bathed. All these necessary treatments that are done by S.W.R.O. would cost you much more if your veterinarian were to do them for you. All cats wil be spayed or neutered prior to adoption. The adoption fee also helps to cover the expense of food and litter while the cat is under our foster care program. S.W.R.O. is a not-for-profit organization.

"CALLIE"

*~FOSTERING A S.W.R.O. KITTY~*

A big part of what Saved Whiskers Rescue Organization, Inc. does involves fostering cats until permanent homes can be found for them. A cat can be in foster care for as little as a few days or as long as year. We are always in need of reliable foster homes. If you are thinking of adopting a cat, fostering is a great way to find out if a cat is indeed the right companion animal for you. If you have no previous cat experience, we will match you with a low-maintenance, friendly feline and provide you with all the information you will need to care for him or her. If you have cat experience, you may consider taking a "special needs" cat or kitten. These are animals that need short-term medication or who need to be socialized or re-socialized (We always need people with experience taminig feral kittens or semi-feral cats). In addition, we often need long-term foster homes for Feline Leukemia, FIV or FIP positive cats. These homes should have no non-Feline Leukemia, FIV or FIP cats in residence, as these viruses are transferrable to cats (but not to humans or other animals). If this sounds like something you'd like to do, please e-mail Pam at
SavedWhiskers@aol.com . She can give you all the details and help you decide if fostering is right for you. The rewards of being a foster parent are tremendous! You are giving the cat/kitten a second chance at life and a warm cozy place to call their own while they await their new home. That is reward in and of itself!

Foster parents have saved many animals from a painful and dangerous life on the streets, and by having a place to live until they're adopted, the animals are saved from the euthanasia they'd face in animal "shelters". Most of the cats and kittens are turned into our rescue due to medical or behavioral problems, or because the novelty of the kitten or cat has worn off, while others were strays living an uncertain life in a dangerous environment. The foster parents provide security, love and someplace for the cats & kittens to call home temporarily. Foster parents truly are life savers, and all it takes is a spare room, a little time, and lots of compassion.

"ELAINE"


IN *ORDER TO FOSTER A S.W.R.O. KITTY, YOU MUST:*

Fill out a Foster Care Application, once approved, you must agree to and sign our Foster Care Agreeement.

Allow a S.W.R.O. volunteer to do a home visit.

Preferably, be experienced with cats.

Have a vet reference with a five year span.

Have a secure, cat-proofed indoor environment (this means no hiding places inaccessible to humans such as holes in walls, and no access to objects or substances harmful to cats). Foster cats cannot be permitted to go outdoors, so your windows and doors must be securely screened in.

A schedule that allows prospective adopers to make appointments to see the cat.

Approval and co-operation of landlord (if necessary), roomates or other household members.

Other animals (if you have any) that will tolearate a new cat.

Ideally, a room with a closing door where the foster cat can be confined and accesible to you until it becomes relatively acclimatized. This is especially important in the case of feral kittens or semi-feral cats whose first instinct is to run and hide.

If possible, the financial ability to provide food and litter for the animal (this eases our finacial burden). However, S.W.R.O. will pay for all vet services and medications, and we can provide supplies if you are on a fixed income or have limited mobility.

Remember that you can get VERY attached to foster cats or kittens, and letting them go can be emotionally difficult. In fact, a lot of foster folks end up adopting their foster cats! But there is enormous satisfaction in the job as well, especially with cats that arrive sick and/or feral (and who would have died or been euthanized by the large shelters) and leave healthy and tame to go to a loving home.

HELP!!! S.W.R.O. IS IN DESPERATE NEED OF FOSTER HOMES!!!!

*~SPONSOR A SPECIAL NEEDS KITTY~*

NEW :: Sponsor-A-PetBELOW YOU WILL SEE THE MANY FACES OF OUR SPECIAL NEEDS KITTIES, THESE KITTIES ARE DEEMED UNADOPTABLE BY MOST PEOPLE ,BECAUSE THEY ARE UNFORTUNATELY EITHER, LEUKEMIA OR FIV POSITIVE, DIABETIC, SUFFERING FROM OTHER MEDICAL CONDITIONS OR FERAL. PLEASE HELP US SUPPORT THESE KITTIES BY MAKING A DONATION TODAY.

SOPHIE STAR ELVIS JEZIBELLE ABBEY GUY SMILEY

NEW :: Sponsor-A-PetWe know that many loving people for a lot of reasons are just not able to bring a cat into their household. Perhaps you have allergies or the place where you live does not allow cats, but there are numerous ways you can still contribute to the care and love of cats. One way is through sponsorship! The cost of sponsoring a kitty is far less than actually owning one and you will be helping the volunteers who work tirelessy to give these kitties the love, companionship and care they deserve. For this reason we are introducing a sponsor-a-cat program that we know will benefit the kitties we rescue and people alike who would like to connect through sponsorship. A small donatation on a regular basis, as little as five dollars a month, can help defray the costs of veterinary care for the cats who are in foster care with us. While the kitty is in foster care our volunteers provide them with food, shelter and lots of attention. By sponsoring one of our rescue kitties, it allows us to continue rescuing the many abused, abadoned and homeless cats & kittens in our region. Remember, all of the donated funds go directly toward S.W.R.O. rescue cats. We are appealing to you to help us in our mission to continue our No-Kill, Non-Profit cat & kitten rescue through sponsoring.

"AUSTIN"

NEW :: Sponsor-A-PetFERAL CATS NEED OUR HELP, TOO!!!! AND SPONSORING IS JUST THE WAY TO DO IT! Even if they may not be suited to a life of leisure and safety as a housecat, they can have safer, healthier life if we feed them, have them spayed and/or neutered and vaccinate them to prevent disease. The cost to support the care of feral cats is rather expensive, but with your sponsorship and a small monetary donation either on a regular basis or just once, will help us to continue to care for these poor helpless kitties. Feral cats by nature pose a unique challenge, they are afraid of humans and avoid contact as much as possible. Even though caretakers are providing food on a regular basis for the many ferals colonies, they will hide until we are gone, usually the kitties only come out at night to feed. A FERAL CAT is cat who has been born outdoors without human socialization thus labeled “feral.” The cycle of feral cats begins when an unsterilized cat is abandoned or lost by his or her guardian. The only difference between a housecat and a feral is that the latter has a strong fear of humans. Ferals are erroneously labeled as "wild cats." A bobcat is a wild cat; a feral cat is a homeless domestic cat.

NEW :: Sponsor-A-PetSaved Whiskers Rescue Organization, Inc. would like to give you the chance to help these feral cats, through our sponsorship program! When you sponsor a feral cat, you help us provide the food, shelter, and medical care they desperately need. A safe, healthy environment is something EVERY cat deserves! These poor kitties are only homeless due to human ignorance and we at Saved Whiskers Rescue Organization, Inc. care enough to want to help what has been done to these cats. Through our Trap, Neuter, Release (TNR) program we can bring these homeless cats' populations down. TNR: Trap, Neuter, Return is an effective, internationally recognized method of population control for cats who are living outdoors without human socialization. The cats are humanely trapped and brought to a veterinarian for sterilization and vaccines and are then returned to the area where they had been living. A MANAGED COLONY is a group of feral cats living in one area are known as a colony. The term “managed colony” is used when a group of feral cats have been spayed/neutered, vaccinated, and have food, water, and shelter provided by a caregiver. A CAREGIVER is a designated person, usually a volunteer, who takes on the management of a feral cat colony. Responsibilities include spay/neutering all cats living within the colony, as well as providing food, water, shelter from extreme weather, and maintaining records of the colony. This person also provides medical care when needed and will assure that any new cat who joins the colony is spayed/neutered. All monetary donations of ANY amount are welcome and appreciated!!!! For more information, please contact Pam at SavedWhiskers@aol.com Below you will see many of the feral cats that Saved Whiskers' Volunteers care for on a regular basis, won't you please sponsor one of them?

*~RAINBOW BRIDGE~*

(Author Unknown)

Just this side of heaven is a place called the Rainbow Bridge. When an animal dies, one who has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to the Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends where they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing: they each miss someone who was very special to them, someone they had to leave behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. The eyes are bright and intent, the eager little body begins to quiver all over! Suddenly that lucky one breaks away from the group, and flies over the green grass, little legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. Happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands once again caress that beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross the Rainbow Bridge together. . . .

"LIL GIRL" R.I.P. 5/25/10

Lil Girl R.I.P. 5/25/10 was diagnosed with cancer just like her mother, Selena. Now poor Lil Girl's sister is all alone outside. Although Lil Girl was feral, the last few weeks of her life she really learned to trust people. I was actually able to pick her up and brought her inside until she let me know it was her time. Lil Girl will be missed greatly, but especially by her sister Gezibelle. Plese watch over your sister.

"BARRY" R.I.P. 7/1/10

Barry R.I.P. 7/1/10 was living in the founders back yard for 3 years before she could trap him. He seemed very feral, even the day we first trapped him. He seemed so aggressive. But really that aggressiveness was just him being scared to death. Barry was a total love bug who loved his rotisserie chicken and his comfy bed. He went through alot during his stay in foster care. He had eye surgery, had all his teeth removed, lots of blood work, but he was a real trooper. Barry had FIV, but you couldn't tell. He acted as happy as all the other cats. Sadly, Barry had a tumor growing in his abdomen that caused fluid to build up making it very uncomfortable for him. We chose to have him humanely euthanized since he was only going to get worse and would have to endure numerous needles injected to remove the fluid and many drugs.
