ADOPTIONS:
Hello Friends! 2006 has been a year of new beginnings for Muffin’s.
PS1029.jpg PeggySue 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 God Bless!
Another new beginning is MAMA: Muffin’s And Mayor’s Alliance. 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. For more information, call 718-833-7988.
*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 Paw Æ Muffin’s adopted Calay.
THE PEGGYSUE Fund helped subsidize medical for these and other needy pets. Your generous contributions made this possible.
Six week old blind Steve Wonder and Elton John his bro, were tested for Aids/Leuk, dewormed, given shots and antibiotics. They were adopted together by Rosemary in SI, NY.
Spike, 14 years old, needed emergency surgery to remove two broken teeth. He missed the cabinet and crashed landed on the table hitting his jaw. He’s fine now, playing with his bud Benson and Teresa.
6 week old Calay, was found with her little left paw dangling and badly infected. Blood and pus were pouring from her little stumpy. She was tested for Aids/Leuk, given shots, spayed and adopted by Muffin’s.

The 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.
In Loving Memory of Rose Abrams 1935-2006
Twelve 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...

PeggySue & Calay adopted by Muffin's
Bess, 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 be 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!

jancop204.jpg Don't 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! Purrs Tail: Introduce yourself to the neighbors as the cat sitter.

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.LÆve is in the air!
Help 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 miles 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.

MacyFund224.jpg 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...
Viva La Kitty. 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.

Sammy519.jpg The Story of Sammy.... "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.
Samm519.jpg One 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 nurtured.

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 jennyjoz@yahoo.com Please Donate to Sweet Sammy's Fund.

Muffin's own 'backyard rescue"
Three legged kitty saved!
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 rules and a scheduled fumigating of her surroundings. To make matters worse 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. Her companion Kitty411, is still at the vets recuperating from an infection but will soon be ready to adopt. Both cats, tested negative, were dewormed and given shots. If you're interested adopting the kitties, please email muffinspets@gmail.com
