has been a year of new beginnings for Muffin’s.
the semi-feral three-legged cat we rescued last year now has a new home. For
those who do not know or may have forgotten, my brother’s family in CT
adopted Peggy. However, new additions to their household included, two mini
goats, which survived the slaughterhouse, but put Peggy under great stress. It
was decided that a new home for Peggy, was best and she now lives with us.
Shortly, after PeggySue had adjusted into her new life with Scooter, our
sixteen-year-old cat, we adopted Calay a rescued six-week-old handicapped
kitten. *Please read about Teresa Romano below* Muffin’s created a PeggySue
catnip/cuddle doll, to remind people to ‘See Capabilities, not the
Disabilities’. The new joyful energy in our home is much welcomed. Another
new beginning is our work with the Mayor’s Alliance getting feral cats
altered. (See MAMA).
In addition to Adoptions and our Spay/Neuter work, we assist with medical
expenses whenever possible. Your support has been a blessing, helping us
continue our work. Included in this issue are just a few of the many adoptions
we have assisted.
In closing this year, we wish you all the Best for the New Year! Jude &
Norm Thank you and
new beginning is MAMA:
Muffin’s is teaming up with Valerie Sicignano,
Director of the NYC Feral Cat Initiative, a program of the Mayor's Alliance
for NYC's Animals, to create MAMA, a Spay/Neuter Feral Cat coupon program in
support of our ongoing efforts to make NYC a no-kill city:
a city where no healthy cat is euthanized. MAMA’s
pink coupon is for FERAL CATS only, covering the spay/neuter, Rabies shot, and
left ear tipping. The ASPCA and NEIGHBORHOOD CATS will also promote MAMA.

TERESA ROMANO, is a Guardian Angel for God’s orphaned kitties. Still in her
PJs and wearing slippers, Teresa responded to an emergency call about a
three-legged kitten with a dangling back paw. She flew like an Angel, and
grabbed the sick six-week-old Calico from the street. She was horrified when
she saw pus and blood pouring out of the infected little stump from the
malnourished, flea infested kitten. She rushed the kitty to the vet, who
thought the entire back paw might have to be surgically removed. Teresa gave
the Clavamox, and nurtured the kitty 24-7. The Healing Angel saved the kitten’s
life. There was no surgery on the little stumpy. God Kissed Her Little
Muffin’s adopted Calay.

Tabby in the Manger
Another wonderful legend about the origin of
the "M" tells about Mary and the tabby cat in the manger. It seems
that the baby Jesus was cold and fussing, and Mary asked the manger animals to
move in closer to warm him. The manger was simply too small to accomplish
that, but a little tabby cat came in and nestled next to the baby, and
cosseted Him with purring and warmth. Mary was so grateful; she bestowed her
own initial, "M" on the cat's forehead. -excerpt from AboutCats.
Loving Memory of Rose Abrams 1935-2006 Y
years ago, Noah, Muffin, and Biscuit, were adopted
by Rose Abrams and her loving family, Alissa and Jonathan. She was very
creative, loved animals and an avid supporter of Muffin’s. When ‘Katrina’
struck and left many frightened animals homeless, Rose prayed for Hope, the
seven-year-old lactating Beagle mother, whose babies were taken from her. Her
prayers were answered. Hope now lives upstate NY. Rose radiated with love and
joy! She will be missed...

& Calay adopted by Muffin's
a six week old, starving, flea infested three-legged kitten, with a 103 fever
was rescued by Teresa Romano, from Bensonhurst. The kittens right hind leg was
dangling and badly infected. Romano brought her to Dr. Sinha's Animal Clinic
in Bensonhurst. After examining Bess, Dr. Sinha prescribed Clavamox for the
infection. He feels that Bess was born with the shorter leg, and that the
entire dangling paw needs to be surgically removed. This beautiful semi-long
hair Calico kitty needs medical assistance and a forever home. Teresa called
Muffin's for help. Muffin's will be able to subsidize the surgery because of
the caring students from P.S. 273 and P.S./IS 206. They participated in the
Common Cents Penny Harvest program, collected pennies and made generous
contributions to Muffin's.
When Bess was ten weeks old, Muffin's
subsidized the four blood tests and shots. We prayed and anxiously waited for
the test results. Bess is a healthy, 3.2 pound playful kitty and does not need
surgery on her little stumpy. Bess was ready to
adopted. Finding a home for a three-legged kitty is not easy. Norm rescued
three legged PeggySue from the basement of our apartment building. She’s
accepted Scoots, our 16 year old Maine Coon X cat. She’s a youthful three
year old who wants to play. Grandpa Scoots is retired! He does not play! After
soul searching and praying, Jude and Norm adopted ten week old Calay AKA Bess
as a playmate for PeggySue. Precious Calay is a calm, sweet, funny, lap kitty
whose purrs melted our hearts. Scoots and PeggySue are not sure of this little
intruder, who is currently in a cage in our living room. PeggySue hides,
Scoots walks past the cage, but right now, neither cat is interested in
meeting calm Calay. The INTRODUCTION went very well.
Precious Calay is teaching PeggySue how to play. She loves Scoots and plays
with his tail. Thank you and God Bless!

shoot ..I'm the cat sitter
by Janice Foti
"As I was getting ready to feed the 10 cats, I heard a loud knocking on the door and someone saying, 'open up, open this door immediately!' So, with one hand holding the cat food can and the other holding a spoon, I ran over to open the door. To my surprise there were six police officers standing there pointing six guns at me! The police officer told me that someone had reported a break-in at this address.
He wouldn't even let me turn around to walk back into the house. I had to back up into the house with my hands up holding the cat food can and spoon while he still had the gun pointing at me! I
nervously told him that I was the cat sitter and showed him all the dishes I had lined up for feeding. I also showed him some identification and the note that my client had left instructing me on how and what to feed the cats. The officers were then convinced that I meant no harm and left." I had diarrhea for the next three days!

All in the Family
Three legged, semi feral PeggySue was
rescued from the basement in Muffin’s apartment building. The exterminator
was scheduled to fumigate the area where she was living. Norm rescued, vetted
and drove her to CT where she now lives with his brother’s family. PeggySue
responds to Norm’s weekend visits by running over and rubbing all over him,
talking, purrring, nudging his hand with her head and devouring all the food
he gives her.

is on the way for Katrina’s
seventeen rescued pets! Muffin’s received an SOS call from Moria
Holland who was going to Louisiana to rescue pets from kill shelters. Moria,
along with her husband Peter and Vet Tech Jessica Howard, rented a van, filled
it with food, water and medical supplies. After driving 2,000
and spending ten days in New Orleans, this heroic rescue team saved seventeen
cats, dogs and kittens. These frightened animals were starving and
traumatized. A beautiful sad eyed Beagle
was alone in a cage waiting her turn to be euthanized. She was weak and
quiet. For seven years, she had been used as a breeding dog. Days
before the wrath of Katrina engulfed Louisiana, she was taken from her
puppies, and surrendered to a kill shelter. This poor nursing mother who pined
away for her babies, was filled with milk. Moria's heart was touched by this
dog’s gentleness and sweet kisses. Along with four other dogs, five cats and
seven kittens, ‘Hope’ endured the 34 hour car ride back to Brooklyn NY.
The pets were vetted, blood tested, given shots and dewormed. Hope was loaded
with heartworm and treated at the Otterkill Animal Hospital upstate. Thanks to
our kindhearted supporters and their generous donations, Muffin’s helped to
subsidize the medical fees for Katrina’s survivors. The real heroes were
Moria, Peter and Jessica for getting involved.
Thank you and God Bless.

badly infected. Your generous contributions made it possible for Muffin’s to

Macy’s New Life...
When eight week old Macy was rescued,
both of her red bulging eyes were horribly infected. Dee applied Chamomile eye
presses hourly to Macy’s inflamed eyes. The following day, Macy was rushed
to the vet, who had to remove both her eyes. She was fighting for her life, as
she was anemic, and flea infested. After she healed, Macy was adopted by
Miriam and her four adult cats. She runs, jumps in the air and catches a toy.
She’s a fun kitty who is the Queen Bee in the feline family. Macy always
uses the litter pan...
During the NorEast ‘05 blizzard, a cat wondered into an empty shack,
where she was locked in for two weeks. There were no foot or paw prints in the
snow. When Dee found her, ‘Viva’ was screaming and scratching at the door.
There was blood the on cats paws and on the door. Viva was a starving three
pound malnourished, seven month old kitty. She went to the vet, had IV fluids,
was blood tested, given shots and dewormed. Ten pound Viva adopted Dee and her
four adult felines. Muffin’s was able to subsidize her medical due to your
generous donations and continued support.

The Story of Sammy....
the cat, is the very definition of "grace under pressure."
A long haired, black un-neutered male, we think someone may have shot him in
one eye with pellet gun, nevertheless, we've never met a gentler, sweeter
cat. Sammy is so grateful for any stability and affection that comes his
way, and he responds with deep and moving devotion---at some point in time,
somebody must have loved this cat very much, because you can tell by his
character that he has the memory of goodness in his life. His strength is so
inspiring, and he deserves to survive.
We found him, half-blind, helpless and
confused cowering inside the workings of a parked truck on 5th Avenue.
We were amazed that, instead of biting and scratching when we retrieved him
out of the truck, he took refuge in our arms. Poor Sammy---so
sweet and trusting... it must have made it all that easier to hurt him.
of Sammy's eyes can't be saved, but the other is doing well under treatment.
When he gets his medication, he is as gentle as a lamb. He needs an
operation to clear the lost eye away, and a home where he will be loved and
Please help Sammy--if anyone in the world
deserves to be safe and happy, it's him. He will return whatever love you
give him, and then some. Thank you! Jenny firstname.lastname@example.org

Three legged kitty
A small kitty with a missing front leg was discovered in our apartment
basement. She was half feral and very hungry. After feeding her for a few days
it became apparent that she could not stay where she was because of apartment

another more friendly cat had joined her. With your generous help Muffin’s
was able to get both cats vet checked and spayed. The three legged cat now
named Stella resides in CT.
