Metro Cat Rescue needs your help so that we can continue to help cats living in the streets. We are DROWNING in bills for food, medical costs and supplies. Please DO donate so that Metro Cat Rescue can be there for community kittens and cats.

Metro Cat Rescue coordinates the volunteer care of many outdoor cats in a number of colonies. We're working hard to bring some inside to socialize and to place in good homes. This takes lots of time, space and money.

Our day with the rescue cats starts at 6am and ends at 8pm. Volunteer feeding of community cats is at dawn.

Many dozens of cats in a number of colonies receive food and clean water every day. Shelters have been constructed for as many as we can. A daily census is taken. If a cat goes missing, a search is conducted to be able to provide medical attention if needed.

Beautiful Venus DeCoco, the cat in the picture above, is one of our success stories. Venus DeCoco was a kitten living in a cared for colony of outdoor cats.

As the chill of autumn set in once and for all, the tyke's health began to fail.  Venus was a feral cat when she arrived. Indeed, when first placed in her temporary quarters, Ms. DeCoco delivered a solid bite to a finger with one long tooth neatly bouncing off of the bone.

Venus came to Metro Cat Rescue sick with a cold and had to be kept by herself so as not to infect the other kittens and cats. Missing her life of freedom and friends, the little girl often sobbed with tears falling from her eyes. Very wild, human friendship at first was rejected.

After a trip to the vet, medicine, good food and warmth, Venus DeCoco became well, She has a kitten buddy.

Venus DeCoco's days as a wild cat are oh so last year. Beautiful Venus now loves people and is happy to be held all day.

Anthony Olszewski and friends have been helping cats in need for for many years. We recently began operating under the name Metro Cat Rescue and hope soon to establish a formal organization. All volunteer -- receiving neither grants nor tax payer dollars -- we depend on community support.

Please do help Metro Cat Rescue! All too often I've had to spend my own grocery money to make sure that the cats were well fed. If Metro Cat Rescue had better facilities and a used SUV or van for transportation, there's so much more that we could do.

It's quick and convenient to use the DONATE button. If everyone reading this gave something, we'd be well on the way to providing for suffering cats who have to fend for themselves. THANK YOU!

This community cat seems to be displaying mixed signals at the approach of a human bringing breakfast.

Ginny's kittens are here!

Loving Ginny was an abandoned cat living in an alley in Queens. A foster took Ginny in and so the kittens were born in a clean and safe place.

Ginny has her own ideas about child raising. "Mama Ginny does not like it when we put anything underneath the kittens! we try to keep a thin blanket or a towel under them to keep them warm but she moves them every time."

Does anyone in the Jersey City area go to Long Island? Metro Cat Rescue wants to send a quantity of cat food to the foster in Bellmore. Please! Anybody close to Jersey City who travels to Long Island, we need your help to assist the foster. If it wasn't for them, Ginny would still be outside amongst the garbage cans. The kittens now are in a warm place and can look forward to caring homes. In the alley -- if they managed to survive -- they'd grow up ferals probably with the hard, short life of many outdoor cats.

Email MetroCatRescue@gmail.com if you can help.

Lovely Ginny was living in an alley in Queens. Tame and friendly, Ginny almost certainly was a house cat thrown away by some heartless person who never should have had a cat. A mom to be, Ginny's great good luck was to be taken in by a foster in Bellmore, Long Island.
