Cat's Cradle Rescue accepts kittens and cats of all ages some with medical and physical issues. It may take awhile, two cases I personally know of, took 1 and 2 years for the cats to be adopted. They stayed in loving foster care until their forever person found them. The harder to place cats, some older, some with medical problems take additional financial responsibility than typically needed. A way is found to provide whatever it is they need. This year with the abnormal amount of kittens born during 'kitten season', many arriving only 1 or 2 days old, an incubator was needed for their survival. Not inexpensive, a volunteer began the fundraising to purchase. It has been used repeatedly since its arrival. This cat rescue goes far beyond many others providing care to kittens and cats in their care.

Cat's Cradle Rescue is a wonderful all volunteer cat rescue that accepts cats of all ages, including ones with 'special needs'. Many times during the year a cat will arrive requiring immediate medial attention, sometimes surgery. They all live in foster care until they are ready to be adopted, no matter how long it takes. All adoption fees go toward veterinarian expenses and supplies. Whenever CCR can they accept cats from other cat rescues in rural areas that do not have the same resources. Some of these require immediate medical care too. They also have a program called "Offered by Owner" for people that find it necessary to rehome their cats. The cats can live at home until a new home can be found. I know all this is true because I have seen it while volunteering and fostering for CCR. My first foster had been injured by someone at age 6 weeks, and could no longer use it's back legs. She had been staying in a Vet clinic in Corvallis hoping a rescue could take her. I had her for 11 months before she found her perfect home. I have fostered 3 other special need cats since her, they all found people to love them too. CCR only sees a furry little animal looking for love, not their age or physical issues. There is someone out there for them, it just takes time.
