*** I am currently looking for someone who would be interested in transporting our kitties to their vet appts to get spayed and neutered. I live close to the Polaris mall, in Lewis Center, and the kitties would be going between SOS of Ohio or The Capital Area Humane Society. I just need someone to pick up and drop off for me. I am happy to give you gas money to transport them. My number is 614-832-2015. Ask for Lynn! Thanks!!***

The Angel Blog

I'm a crazy cat lady, not a blogger. 

So you have to be a little crazy to start a cat rescue. Well maybe a lot crazy. Or maybe just cat crazy? Since I spend 95% of my time rescuing cats, I probably have earned the distinguished title of "the crazy cat lady".  

At any rate, I'm a little new at this blogging thing. So for my first attempt, I just wanted to say that I am very excited to be making progress with the business side of things and I wanted to give you a quick update. We now have our not-for-profit status and donations are helping our cause. Our rescue is growing, the word is getting out, and today we went live with our brand new website!
I hope everyone enjoys our site. We still have some more work to do here, but it's a great start. Please share our site and feel free to share our adoptable cats on your facebook page by clicking on their gallery link. We will have more of our feline friends on the adoption page very soon.

This has just been such a blessing and a rewarding adventure for me. I hope I can find the time to share some of my experiences in this blog. I also thought I could use this forum to write about other things that may be of interest to my fellow cat lovers. So if you have any questions or suggestions for things you would like me to blog about, please let me know in the comments below.

Thanks in advance for putting up with my special kind of crazy.

Mary "the cat lady" Lopez 
(I left the crazy part out!)

    We have five former feral cats that we have fostered and socialized for more than 6 months. All have been spay/neutered, have all their shots, dewormed, defleaed, and are negative feline leukemia/feline AIDS. They are egyptian mau/russian bleu/tuxedo in coloration (father was a pure russian blue, mother was egyptian/ russian blue, four kittens are also mixed with a tuxedo(kittens are: russian blue. russian blue-mau length hair and bushy tail, gray tuxedo, black tuxedo). Mother is a russian blue with a very small chest star. We are looking for a good home for them. Anyone who is interested will go through the Angels interview process. These cats are GREAT mousers. Cleared out our mouse and chipmunk problem. They would make perfect barn cats. All can be picked up, cuddled, belly scratched, and will be affectionate when they get to know you. We would love to have AAF help us find a home for them.

    I adopted my beautiful Siamese bundle of joy Mello a little over a year ago through Mary and from day 1 fell in love with my furr child. I am so grateful for angels assisting felines for giving me him to add joy and happiness to my life! Mary is far from crazy. She's an angel that brought the light back to my life 🐱

    You are truly Angels! I thank you sincerely for your help finding a surrogate mom-cat for two kittens that were delivered to my house by neighbors. My work schedule did not permit the time needed for every 2 hour, round the clock feeding/stimulating for these neonatal kittens! Your organization found a surrogate mom-cat in less than 24 hours! Both kittens doing very well and wonderful momma accepted them readily with hers!! I just don't have that kind of time anymore to raise them properly and wasn't sure how I was ever going to manage it! I can't thank you enough!!!!!!!!!

    The Short Version: This is a truly heart, soul, physically and financially committed, HANDS ON Rescue. Mary Et Al goes above the line of duty to save these little soul’s lives. About me: animal angel but never rescuer from DC/FL/abroad, amid own urgent critical medical and financial hardship right now and every other Rescue Organization turned me down for help in effectively rescuing these two freezing kittens although I do have a lot of people to thank in the process, especially who suggested I call Angels Assisting Felines. Because Mary took ownership! One kitten was dying in my hands, the other was very weak. And she shared her own antibiotics to save Happy (Taz was lucky I rescued her 2 weeks before) then made and came through with no-cost OSU spay arrangements and is now committed to find them a Forever Together Home, with someone who adores and treats them not as animals but as family, in health and sickness, till death do everyone apart. These two babies are truly human! they follow, sleep and play with me, truly lap kitties. Thank you Mary, God bless you! And if anyone reading this would like to be a Forever Responsible & Loving, Parent & Protector, Home & Family for these two co-dependent precious spirited trusting fun-loving little sibling souls Taz & Happy, for good bad or indifferent, in health & sickness and away from any circumstances or inconveniences (moves, allergies, babies and the sort) please contact me GBejarano123@gmail.com Tel. 703 931 5006 or photos and visitations to get to know them or contact Mary. They are stunning! lap babies. The Long Version: I was first introduced by a neighbor then dumped into stressing for these two precious 3-4 month kittens struggling to survive 1 degree over Zero temperatures alone in the ice, rain and snow of a worn-out thicket/bush in a predatory nature preserve where--had they not made dinner for (or killed by) coyotes and other animal and human predators in the area, they would have surely helplessly died in the worst pain, hungry, frozen, alone. Originally 7 kittens I am told abandoned by their mother; 5 were killed by cars trying to find food near the dumpster of a busy nearby apartment community. These 2 --now Taz (for Tazmenian Devil) & Happy (Go Lucky)-- were somehow barely surviving but not for long. So in poor health, major crisis & hardship, high risk myself, from DC/FL not knowing a soul in OH, I submerged in a reckless rescue regardless. I recruited my partner who works 8-10:30pm and visited the bush twice daily. Neighbor help built a model Kittie Shelter (2 in fact) a feeding station, hot water, dry food, Temptations and sardines! to lure them. An amazing operation, wish I could post photos. Desperate to rescue them, sometimes flirting with them until 2:30am, we called, they answered, ran across the bushes to meet us while chasing & tripping each other and cried for help. Until one day prior to another drop in temperature, there was only 1 and cries were heartbreaking with such anguish, volume and desperation I armed myself with a live trap (not knowing how to use it and dreading the betrayal) provided by another caring Rescue Organization, sardines and we trapped little Taz. But happy was walking the roads in search of food, then coming back to Taz and NOT buying into this trap! wherever we put the trap, she would leave to end up right in front of us doing all sort of tricks for us up: climbing trees, rolling in snow, did you ever watch the cartoon RoadRunner? That! And right before the next freeze, the neighbor who had both traps went MIA. I was determined to get Happy that night before the freeze, who remained onsite due to Taz’ smell (fresh poop I deposited next to rescue shelter) along with warm water, foods, Temptations treats, toys. I sat on the floor in the rain, she showed up, we played. She came close, I failed. She reluctantly gave me a second chance and I caught her with my HANDS she almost ripped me apart. She was determined, but so was I. Taz & Happy were reunited--Taz very sick and Happy was dying in my hands-- I don’t know how she managed to climb trees, run and do tricks for us.  I called Mary to share the news! Mary gave me antibiotics for Happy, I nurtured them back to life with Pedialite, freshly chicken soup with lots of olive oil, Happy’s little body was in bones, shut down (no poo or pee for 5 days) had Miralax, I thought I was losing her but once she did there was hope again. Mary was supported me every step of the journey and she was there to provide no-cost spay. At the writing of this note --complications and all-- I can safely say they both made it and they are the most adorable lovable friendly tender kittens on God’s creation—both lap kitties—they follow you, groom you, sleep with you, speak with you, long for you. But they also depend on each other for Everything! Eating, playing rambunctiously, grooming each other, they are Yin and Yang, I’ve nurtured them back to life, loved, trained, made them perfect lap kitties for someone who will adore them like us Together in a Forever Home & Family, in health and sickness, regardless of circumstances, till death do everyone apart. Unfortunately, my own future is uncertain, I want the best for them.
