Regina Cat Rescue (RCR) is fortunate to have many dedicated volunteers who care for our rescued cats and kittens - from the tame kitties placed into foster care to the community cats who are happiest living on the streets with the support of our Community Cat Team.
We do the best we can for each and every rescue, but sometimes no amount of love or veterinary care is enough to save fragile lives.
We experienced our share of heartbreak in 2017, including the loss of several kittens to one of the nastiest cat viruses out there, panleukopenia. We also had to let go of a precious young kitten named Rocky due to neurological damage from unknown causes and one kitten who simply failed to thrive.
Whether it was a vulnerable young kitten who succumbed to a killer virus or an elderly feral cat who became overwhelmed with health problems, each and every cat knew love from dedicated caregivers and the benefit of the best veterinary care that we could provide. We are grateful to generous donors and an extraordinary fundraising team for enabling us to provide that veterinary care.
We are also grateful to the caregivers who accept these cats into their hearts and homes, and to the Community Cat Team that spend countless hours with our colony cats. It isn't always easy, but it is always appreciated by the cats and RCR.
RIP to the sweet felines who crossed the rainbow bridge in 2017. We're proud to say they left the world knowing love.
-Alanna, Regina Cat Rescue
