Meow from the Anjellicles
If you agree with Ralph Waldo Emerson that the best tunes are played on the oldest fiddles, then you’ll appreciate the advantages of a senior kitty. It is a misconception that all senior cats require medication or are too set in their ways. Older cats provide a level of companionship that many youngsters don’t because they have outgrown the self-centered ways of even the sweetest kitten. They recognize that while laser pointers are truly awesome, so is curling up next to a friend on a snowy afternoon.
If all this seems like the purrfect match you’ve been looking for, meet ADRIAN, GINGER and JAMIE.
ADRIAN is a fluffy, gorgeous ball of love. Her former owners
surrendered her to the city shelter because they supposedly didn’t have enough
time for her. Quiet and calm, Adrian is not a demanding kitty. She loves to be
petted and cuddled, and is generous with her affections. She will gaze at you
with beautiful eyes and, when you whisper her name, will politely ask for some
love. Adrian is a submissive, but not shy, cat who gets along well with kitties
that won't bully her. She likes to play and snuggle with gentle felines, yet
would be happy as your only cat. Thanks to her easygoing nature, Adrian does
well with mature children and helps teach them to be wonderful pet owners. This
gray calico is about 8 years, 9 months old.
GINGER is a sweet, dignified lady with an enormous heart. After a decade with her sister, Ginger was surrendered to the city shelter when her owner moved in with another cat owner and it was determined three cats were one too many. This devoted feline greets her fosters at the door and shares good-morning kisses once they’re awake. Ginger adores people and ideally wants to be your one and only feline friend, but she gets along with mellow cats. Her inner kitten shines once the Cat Dancer and laser pointer come out! Always displaying impeccable manners, Ginger has never swiped or growled at her fosters. When naptime rolls around, she beckons them to the sofa or curls up on a welcoming lap. Ginger eats a certain food due to irritable bowel syndrome. This charming female is about 10 years, 4 months old.
JAMIE is a sweet, mellow gentleman who is friendly with people and other cats. He was abandoned and ended up at the city shelter when his former owner was evicted. Terribly underweight, he quickly regained his health and good spirits. Jamie likes to rub against you, especially when food is involved. But considers it poor etiquette to jump on or scratch you, even if you are late to feed him. Jamie likes to watch other cats play and will tussle with his own stuffed mouse. His tender nature came out when a pair of female calico kittens entered his life. He relishes the role of their protector, grooming and sleeping with them. When other cats are too rough with them, the kittens run past their mother to Jamie for comfort and support. This handsome tuxedo is about 9 years, 9 months old.

Former ACR kitty Nina was honored as the Cat of the Year at the 2012 Westchester Cat Show. She was a true queen in her castle donated by Sturdi Products. In addition to a certificate of achievement and the Scarlett ribbon, named after the show's first Cat of the Year, Nina received a generous donation of canned food and freeze-dried treats from Weruva.
Nina was calm and gracious in the spotlight, welcoming her fans to pet her and learn more about her loving relationship with the Diaz family. Two children in the family have pervasive developmental disorder and are high-functioning on the autistic spectrum.
Nina has become their therapy cat, helping them cope with day-to-day changes and activities. ACR wishes to thank the Westchester Cat Show for honoring Nina and the Diaz family for giving Nina such a wonderful home.
One look at their paws and you’ll understand why these polydactyl siblings are nicknamed “the mitten kittens.” Smart, funny and playful, these extra-claw kitties love attention and reward you with plenty of purrs and kisses. ACR caught up with Kristen and Kristopher at an adoption event where they were hogging the spotlight – as usual!
How did you end up with Anjellicle Cats Rescue?
A former volunteer who now works at Animal Care & Control recognized how amazing we are and told Anjellicle Cats about us.
Why do you think you are so confident and easy to handle?
Isn’t it obvious, just look at us. We are super cute and have extra claws. Our front paws look like we have thumbs, plus extra claws are good luck. Also we are brilliant, off the scale genius.
What is an example of your genius?
We can always find the so-called hidden bag of treats. Doesn’t matter where our foster mom hides it, we can find it. We always get a good laugh from the look on her face.
When you aren’t entertaining everyone you meet, how do you spend your days?
We love watching Jackie Chan movies! All that jumping and running gives us lots of ideas for our own training workouts.
What are you training for?
Once we perfect our trapeze routine using the hammock in our crate, we are going to be ready for hang gliding. We think we have just about convinced our foster mom to let us use the kitchen for our practice runs.

MUSETTA is a rare golden orange and white girl who always greets and gives nose kisses to volunteers. She is very curious and likes chasing feather and laser toys. When she is relaxed, she rolls on her back and is ridiculously cute. Musetta loves to be around people—especially if they have treats!—and is eager to return as much affection as she receives. She is also very good with other cats and makes friends easily. This lovely six-year-old had a difficult time bouncing around from the ACC to a foster home to Spoiled Brats. But Musetta’s good spirits have returned and she is ready to find a loving companion.
BELL is one of the most gentle and loving kitties we’ve had the pleasure to know. She looks right into your eyes with such a sweet expression, you just can’t resist petting her buttery soft fur and cute ear tufts. This seven-year-old is so engaging and friendly it is as if Bell wants to help the volunteers with their duties. She moved to Spoiled Brats in June when she lost her home because her former owner experienced some personal problems. A low-maintenance delight, Bell wants nothing more than to sit next to you for long, relaxing marathons of cheek and head rubs.
Musetta and Bell are living at Spoiled Brats. Volunteers are available every night to introduce you to these lovely ladies and the rest of the Cat Room Crew.

Scene Last Night: Kravis, Chelsea Clinton; Cat Pasties
At Carnegie Hall’s opening night, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra’s “Carmina Burana” sped by so quickly that the civic-minded could head home in time for the first presidential debate.
Others opted for dinner at the Waldorf-Astoria.
Guided by Riccardo Muti and only recently recovered from a two-day musicians’ strike, the orchestra was joined by the Chicago Children’s Choir. The audience included Chelsea Clinton, Sarah Jessica Parker, Henry Kravis and Peter May.
“I feel exuberant,” said Deborah Rutter, president of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra Association, at the Waldorf. “I was right next to the Children’s Choir. The kids were so into it.”
Rutter, in a Nicole Miller gown, shared her table with Bianca Jagger and Robert Caro for a meal of Portobello mushroom and grilled eggplant, followed by petite osso bucco and flourless chocolate hazelnut cake.
An orchestra played “I Could Have Danced All Night,” although there was no dancing.
Guests table-hopped and applauded the arrival of the Norwegian baritone Audun Iversen, who said he is giving himself one day to see New York. Among his goals: to find a pub where he can watch his favorite football club, Tottenham Hotspur, play Greece’s Panathinaikos in Athens.
Muti did not make it to the Waldorf. “He’s not here for a very good reason -- he got exhausted doing what he did,” said Sanford Weill, chairman of Carnegie Hall.
“And he’s got two more concerts in the next two nights,” added the hall’s executive and artistic director, Clive Gillinson.
The evening raised “a little over $2.7 million,” Weill said.
Friends of felines passed the donation bucket last night for Anjellicle Cats Rescue, a nonprofit that saves animals from the pound before their time runs out. The third annual “Catbaret” at the Laurie Beechman Theatre starred, among others, Broadway performer Trisha Rapier (“Sister Act”), Stephanie Sellars -- who as “Lusty Le Mew” stripped down to her pasties -- and singer-songwriter Laura MacLean.
MacLean’s rendition of Carole King’s “You’ve Got a Friend” drew tears from the audience as a slide show of animals in need appeared in the background. The benefit ended on a high note with the full cast singing the Beatles’ “All You Need Is Love.”

SOAPTOWN USA NEWS
Our long-time supporter, Robin Mattson, well known from her role on General Hospital, recently held a fundraiser for us!
Read below for the shout-out!
Thank you, Robin!
"A Taste of Italy" was hosted by Lisa LoCicero (Olivia) with guest Robin Mattson (Heather):
• Robin Mattson got a room full of cheers when the crowd asked who she’s like to return and she noted, “Scotty has always been a great partner in crime. He was always somehow able to deal with Heather and
her antics. I still talk to Kin [Shriner, Scotty] often. He looks great. I think he’d be up for it!”
Mattson also shared her real-life passion for kitties and during the weekend, raised over $1,000 for Anjellicle Cats Rescue, a non-profit cat rescue and adoption organization. “My husband went to a soccer game, he saw this kitten and this woman said she was fostering the cat for an animal rescue, and he suggested I give them a call. I did, and that was the beginning of everything. They work so hard and are so dedicated. It’s a wonderful organization and I’m so happy to support them.”

In a twist worthy of a Disney dog movie, today's animal rescuers may not be plucking stray dogs from the street or puppy mill, but from NYC's own Animal Care & Control center.
The euthanasia rate at the ACC has plunged from 31,701 animals killed in 2003 to only 10,188 killed in 2011.
That reduction is due to lots of factors, including the ASPCA's aggressive spaying and neutering efforts and the new trend of trapping and neutering feral cats. But much of the drop can be attributed to citizen rescuers who pluck death row cats and dogs from the shelter's "euth list," foster and get them medical care. Rescuers then market the animals to potential adopters via word of mouth and increasingly sophisticated social networking sites that sport irresistible pics and compelling bios. Read more.....
We are beyond excited! It's a moment for cats in the fashion spotlight! (can we all say Meowyou to Choupette for that? MOL)

Rescued from a hoarding situation, GARFIELD is an easygoing, peaceful kitty who enjoys helping you relax. His favorite activities include sleeping with one paw over his eye at the foot of your bed—where he stays put throughout the night. This four-year-old fellow would be happy as your only cat or paired with a female FIV+ companion.
Young MARIA delivered a litter of FIV-negative kittens that have all been adopted, and now it is her turn. Full of energy, this sweet brown tabby likes dogs and may have been one in a past life. She comes meowing when you whistle and jumps eagerly into your lap. Less than two years old, Maria loves company and would thrive in a home with another FIV+ cat.
JUNI is a lover not a fighter. He enjoys kissing your hand with gentle licks when petted and brushed. This vocal fellow recently celebrated his second birthday with a party on a tall chest of drawers—he likes to be at your eye level or above. Juni adores other cats, especially females. It would be wonderful if Juni and Maria were adopted together.
For more information about GARFIELD, JUNI or MARIA, email email@example.com.
It’s not often you hear that people are getting excited over cat litter. But on Sunday afternoon when a large van drove up with 180 eight-pound bags of World’s Best Cat Litter inside, many Anjellicle Cats Rescue volunteers were extremely excited and had to resist forming a scrum around the timely donation.
Just two weeks ago, ACR volunteer Felice Clyne-Davis contacted World’s Best to see if our little non-profit might be eligible for a donation of our favorite litter. To our delight, Regional Manager Scott Friedman immediately offered Anjellicle a “pallet” of their Original Clumping litter and their Multiple Cats Clumping litter (the debate is ongoing as to which is the most-preferred).
The pallet was ours, if we could arrange to retrieve it from their storage facility in Rhode Island. New Yorkers don’t have cars, much less vans, so thankfully another ACR volunteer, Nancy Moran, jumped in and offered to rent a van to pick up the goods.
The booty arrived safely and was distributed to ACR volunteers who foster cats and kittens that are pulled from the euthanasia list at the City’s Animal Care and Control.
We are so grateful to World’s Best Cat Litter for this generous donation, and especially to Felice Clyne-Davis and Nancy Moran who made it all possible!
The full amount will go towards care and health of our rescued cats and kittens!
Thank you to everyone who helped us reach our goal and we hope you enjoy your t-shirt!

La Crosse woman saves a Brooklyn cat from death
It’s a love story that could be straight from a movie. Nothing could keep them apart. Not 1,072 miles. Or different backgrounds. Not even death row. Meet Angel. She’s a 5-year-old long haired orange tabby that was set to be euthanized at a shelter in New York.
Meet Andrea Zenith. She’s a 31-year-old La Crosse resident with a cat named Hunni, which she’s owned for 13 years.
Hunni and Angel look exactly alike. Call them doppelgangers, even.
So when Zenith saw Angel’s photo last month on a Facebook group called Cats on Death Row, tears instantly started falling. Read more....
