Meet Smokey Bear 🐱
▪
Smokey Bear is one of our best lap sitters. If you sit on the ground, he is the first one to climb into your lap and he will not get up willingly. He is still a little jumpy though, loud noises scare him and he will run if you walk up to him.
▪
He’s still pretty reserved, but is coming along. He really enjoys when we get down on the floor and call him over for pets and to talk to him. He prefers to watch all the action from the sidelines. He will need a very patient and quiet household, require daily brushing, and probably no other pets.
▪
We know that over time he is going to settle in and become accustomed to being handled and treated with kindness; even though his skittishness gets the best of him sometimes and he feels the need to scurry away, he always comes back for TLC and lap time with his new human friends. If you feel that you are the type of person who could give this sweet, shy guy a second chance, Smokey Bear is waiting patiently to meet you!

Our #ForeverHomeFriday update this week is from Lovebug, who celebrated her Gotcha day earlier this week— One year since she found her family! ❣️ “Lovebug has turned into the best cuddle bug ever! She loves to snuggle up on the couch, on her terms of course! She loves to be brushed and being the diva of the house, she demands she gets what she wants. She's definitely very vocal. 🙂 She loves her treats in the morning and at night. She's not best friends with her brothers, but they will finally share spaces. And they have bonded over their favorite pastime, watching the birds on the feeders. She also gets the zoomies every morning and at night. 😂 She's really truly an amazing cat and we are so thankful to have added her to our family a year ago. I can't imagine my life without her sweet purrs and snuggles.”

We know it’s snowing, but we’re hoping we still see you tonight from 6-8pm for open adoptions! Also, Dorothy wants to remind you that she and her buddies 3yrs or older and located at our shelter are discounted to $25 - GREAT time to add a new little someone to your family, young or “old”!

All cats from FOF are vetted, up to date on vaccines, spayed/neutered, and microchipped upon adoption.

Nia...MISSING a canine! I don't know if it was missing before I adopted her. I caught her yawning behind by closet curtains (her "kitty cave")! #cat #cats #catsofmichigan #catsofgrandrapids #catsofinatagram #feline #felines #felinesofmichigan #felinesofinstagram #caninetooth #missingtooth #kittyyawn #kittycave #sweetheart #joy #laughter #fun #love
Some say it’s too early for Christmas music, but I think we can all agree on one thing: baby, it’s cold outside.
.
With winter comes cold temperatures and the need for cozy shelters for the feral colonies we look after. TNR isn’t just about fixing and releasing, we also make certain that the cats we TNR have a safe environment with someone to take care of them. And a big part of that means providing them with shelter from the harsh weather that winter brings. While we have several permanent structures (generously built for us by a former volunteer’s Boy Scout troop), we also make lots of portable “container shelters.” Our goal is to make enough for both our colonies and for members of the community who are taking care of their own ferals. Unfortunately, this year we’ve run out, and we haven’t quite met our goal.
.
While we have shelters placed (thankfully just before the first snow!), we are still needing to build more. But, we are short our two major supplies: containers and styrofoam boards/containers (used as insulation). If this is something you’d be interested in donating, our outdoor critters would certainly appreciate it (and so would we!)!
.
You can purchase containers straight from our amazon wishlist (http://a.co/acUwLX5) or from anywhere you’d like! The only requirements are that they are 18 gallon tubs or larger and have a lid.
.
This is also a great group service project (wink wink 😉)! If you’re looking for an easy way to fit a project in this holiday season, this would certainly work! You can find some awesome instructions in this YouTube video put out by @coleandmarmalade!

If you watched the stories, you know I got WAY too attached to Jody, but I'm so SO happy she found her perfect forever home. I may have shed a tear on this one! 😭😭😭 Congratulations JodyCat ❤️ Adoption #132

Look at this perfect baby this morning. #exoticshorthair #catsofgrandrapids
Some of my favorite volunteers came in to see me today. @future.kittenfosterer brought me a potent catnip kicker that I FREAKING love, which is saying a lot because I don’t play with just ANY toy like a dumbdumb

Children are the future. They will be the ones to take over FOF and all the other rescues when our time is up. So when kids are willing to take the time to come up with service projects, donate their hard earned money, or simply want to learn while they are here looking at cats, we are always on board.
.
We want to foster that giving spirit and encourage kids to pursue their passion and become voices for the voiceless. Sometimes that means meeting them where they’re at: providing tours, showing them how their donation helps, giving them the opportunity to pet a cat or two, and encouraging them to hang on to their giving nature - because, like we said, they are the future and they matter too. Adults aren’t the only ones who can make a difference.

As the temperature begins to drop, outside kitties will look for warmth! That warm place might just be your vehicle.

Waldo was found in a field with a baby bottle full of cows milk and a sibling that didn’t make it. He was pretty sick (cats are unable to digest cows milk) and so he’d been alone in his fosters home for a while, but that was okay because he got his foster mama all to himself! Until, that is, the day his foster siblings joined him, and made it their mission to show him how to cat properly. Patagonia and Waldo (pictured here) have become especially close, always snuggling while she grooms him. We try our hardest to teach our bottle babies the ropes of cathood, but sometimes another cat is what they really need - and Patagonia has become that for him.
.
While they are still a little too little to go home yet, they are available to meet with an approved application. We’d love to see these bonded babies go home together, and maybe that home is with you!

Sinbad is one of our longest term residents, having lived with us for about 3 years. He’s shy and often hides during adoptions, so he’s always overlooked. But when it’s just the volunteers, he’s demanding of attention and as sweet as can be. He just needs someone to see his potential and to understand it may take a little work to gain his trust, but once you have it, oh is the reward so worth it.
.
Sinbad is also among our kiddos who qualify for our current promotion! Any adult cat 3 years or older and located at our shelter has a reduced adoption fee of $25! Come meet Sinbad and his buddies today from 12-2pm!
.
It’s also the last day of PetSmart’s National Adoption Weekend! We will have an adoption counselor at the PetSmart in Grandville today from 12-2pm!
.
.
Adoption Promotion applies only to qualifying cats located at our shelter and runs through the end of November 2018.

Our spotlight volunteer this week is Amy (@apertureoftheblackcat)! She is awesome and we can thank her for our great merch photos! “Not me in the picture but my husband who volunteered to be my model for the day :D
We both volunteer because we love cats. If we could take care of more we'd take them all home!” ❤️

This babygirl is Margaux. She has a French name because she’s très jolie. You gotta work your way into her favor, but once she lets her guard down, she’s a treat. She loves playing with a shoestring (she purrs really loud when she plays!) And she put her front paws on my lap while I petted her, so I’m guessing she’ll be a lap cat once she’s more comfortable in a home. Her previous owners said she’s cuddly. Ok, I wrote a lot, you can tell I fell in love with her. Go meet Margaux @hswmi They’re open for another hour!

It’s a PetSmart National Adoption Weekend! We will have adoption counselors on site TODAY (Saturday) 12-2pm!
.
Joining our PetSmart crew today are kittens:
.
Nash: The most playful out of his brothers. He is a chatter box and let's you know when he wants something... Usually food. In the last week or so he has started cuddling a ton. Good with cats, dogs, and kids.
.
Crosby: The MOST cuddly bean out of the boys. He will seek any warm lap to snuggle on, including the dogs. He is also playful, but would rather snuggle. Good with cats, kids, and dogs.
.
Stills: He is a good mix of super playful and a little snuggler. He often starts the play fights and is always up for a little wrestle with his brothers. Good with kids, dogs, and other cats.
.
Batika: most playful of her litter, always curious and wants to be right in the middle of play time. She loves to chase toys on a stick, whether it be ribbons or feathers. Not to fear though, she settles down nicely to sit and cuddle in your lap for hours. She loves being scratched behind the ears and have her tummy rubbed. She would do well in a home that includes other animals and kiddos.
.
Poppie: the most outgoing of her litter. She will greet you with meows and purrs the minute she sees you. She will often walk around with her toys in her mouth, especially puff ball toys. Although she loves to play with her humans, she is also very good at playing independently. She is very cuddly, and is content to settle in for a good snuggle. She would also do well with other animals and kids.
.
Hope to see you there!

It’s a PetSmart National Adoption Weekend! We will have adoption counselors on site TONIGHT (Friday) from 5-7pm and Sat/Sun from 12-2pm!
.
Our current PetSmart crew includes:
.
Cookie: This girlie is super sweet and always up for a pet or snuggle. She wasn’t a big fan of the other cats at the shelter so may do better as an only cat or with just one other buddy.
.
Plum: This beautiful little girl was surrendered to us with her friend Zia due to allergies in the home - so she would be okay with other cats and children. She’s a sweet, soft, fluffy, and playful girl.
.
Marco: This nine month old boy is a sweet and playful boy. He was born to a stray mama, so we don’t know much about his past, but he would make a good companion for any family!
.
Zia: This gorgeous lady is as sweet as sugar. She loves to be pet and almost never stops moving when out of her cage to play. She’s deaf, but that doesn’t slow her down, just tap her should, show her the toy, and toss! She especially loves catnip mice!
.
Hope to see you there!

Crosby, Stills, and Nash are hoping to see you tonight from 6-8pm!

Crosby, Stills, and Nash are hoping to see you tonight from 6-8pm! They also want to remind you that, while they are too little to count for the promotion, their big kid buddies 3yrs or older and located at our shelter are discounted to $25 - GREAT time to add a new little someone to your family, young or “old”! . .

There are no words to express our deep gratitude at your unending generosity. Thank you, friends, for helping us raise almost $5000 to go towards our vet bills - we couldn’t do this without you. Now excuse us while we happy cry over in the corner.

Grey Catsby is looking for a forever home.
▪
I believe that feeling safe and secure is something he hadn’t much of. He witnessed a great deal of verbal and some physical abuse in his former home, so he will just need consistency and kindness to allow him to start shining again.
▪
I can say with certainty that he now has the basic, but perhaps fragile, trust in believing in humans, and is learning that they can do right by him. In spite of his upbringing he is not a lot of work, cuddly without being clingy and is getting happier by the day.
▪
He is the perfect gentleman, and also very handsome. He likes people, but isn’t crazy about being the center of attention. Once he comes down from the cat walk though, he enjoys being by you (although he’s a bit shy at first). Anyone looking for a cat that has his quiet mannerisms will be very lucky.

Meet Gordo #ADOPTME
▪
Gordo LOVES bird watching, his treats and cannot get enough wet food. He’s an adorable, little tabby with a big personality.
▪
I think he’d do best in a home with one other cat as he tends to get bossy when overwhelmed with too many furballs around him.  He may even make a good companion for a dog and he most definitely has the energy to keep up with kids.
▪
He is a very silly boy who often demands to be held by climbing onto your shoulder. He is anxiously awaiting for someone to grab ahold of him and never let him go!

We have another happy cat in the room! Meet Bronn. You can tell him apart from his fellow orange siblings by looking at the color pattern— his markings are circular. Our adoption hours today are 3-5pm if you want to meet him! 🧡😽

It’s Adopt a Senior Pet month! So, starting TODAY, and running through the end of November, cats located at our shelter that are 3+ years old have reduced adoption fees of $25!
.
Often “older” or “senior” cats are overlooked in favor of kittens, teenagers, or young adults. But, these cats have many, often overlooked, wonderful qualities too! They tend to be calmer, cuddlier, and wiser than their younger counterparts, while still having playful sides! We love our big kids and firmly believe if you take the time to meet them you will too!
.
We have open adoptions today from 12-2pm at our shelter and PetSmart in Grandville!
.
The $25 adoption fee only applies to cats located at our shelter thats are 3 years or older.

NIGHTIME FEEDING TIME:

Here we have Montie and the other orange white one in the distance ive decided to name Cheddar. We have the cheeses.  So we had the one orange and white..my fave lil guy Colby Jack...and now weve got Montie (Monterey) and The new one is Cheddar.  Its the cheese crew. I seriously think that someone is dumping cats around here..because we have had so many different ones recently like the cheese crew and Gizmo. And they are all un fixed males. *
*
*
Please keep in mind friends..this is Michigan and we get HORRIBLE winters here. We are in need of many items to be able to make enough shelters. On top of that we NEED WET FOOD, blue pads, bleach, unscented detergent, cleaner, garbage bags, kitty treats, a new bucket with handle for cleaning purposes, rags and towels and blankets..ETC!!!! On top of that funds are needed for medications and other flea drops. Funds are needed for uber rides to take cats in for Spay and neuter. Funds are needed for vet appointments. Funds are needed to purchase FVRCP vaccines. Please know AND understand. Without these items and funds...i cant continue. Thank you. *

Our #ForeverHomeFriday update today is from Ridge! 🧡 “Ridge is seriously what I was looking for. He’s not attached at the hip, but he’s cuddly and loves to be pet and brushed. His favorite spot to be brushed is his belly, it’s so cute. We had a phase where he was meowing ALL NIGHT, but thankfully that has passed. He sleeps with jake and I every night and sits on my desk with me while I work all day. We love him so much. ❤️” So happy for Ridge and his forever family!

On this first day of November, we are thankful for our supporters. Every one of you plays an integral part in our rescue - always responding, to an overwhelming degree, to our pleas for help. This response allows us to continue to feed, entertain, house, and provide for our animals. It also gets some of our hard to place and long term cats their own loving forever home!
.
One of our supporters, Dr. Nylaan and his wife, have gone above and beyond for our shelter too many times to count. They learned of us in 2012 and upon visiting were quickly chosen by their love Aurora. They were impressed by our facility, the professionalism of our volunteers, and the care and passion we put into the care of our cats - prompting them to start supporting and donating to our shelter. . 
Over they years the Nylaan’s have donated not only financially, but have given us washers and dryers, rummage sale items, 2 large walk in kennels for long term housing of feral cats, hold Zumba donation events, and have donated countless other items - often in memory of the animals they’ve lost. They’ve also adopted from us three more times after taking Aurora home! They found their girl, Chelsea, on facebook and just recently adopted babies Edgar and Elsa.
.
Their dedication to our shelter has continually blessed us and we cannot say thank you enough. They support other causes and organizations in our community as well, and can often be found using their Practice to give back. So if you’re looking for a new dentist - this is the place to go! Not only do they keep your smile in working order, they also support your favorite local cat rescue - us!
.
Thank you, Nylaan’s, for your continual support. Our animals have and continue to benefit for your generosity - but they’re cats so they’re not always good at expressing their thanks, so let us do it for them: Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
