omg, another stamp!! Yeah, I'm addicted now. -_-;

Anyway, rescuing strays is something I'm really passionate about, whether you go to the pound and save a pet that way, or you decide to bring in that scruffy stray from your neighborhood, I'm all for rescuing animals. The kitty in the stamp is my tiny kitty Bella. She was a beat-up runt, a grungy neighborhood stray that was more than happy to become a pampered house cat.

Feel free to use this if you like, just link back, you know the drill.

I found my little kitty in a shoebox at the side of the streets, I'm so glad I found her and now we have each other. c:

That's so awesome. Rescue cats are the best! Since I posted this, I've taken in a second kitty that a friend found in a dumpster. She's a little derpy, but the sweetest thing, and I wouldn't trade her for anything. :D

Thank you for making this. I have two shelter cats who i love very much. My first cat we adopted at the shelter and she was an owner surrender. She was already 3 years old which was perfect for us because we wanted an adult cat. She was only 5 pounds because in her previous home she lived in fear of a dog chasing her all the time. Well here we are 3 years later and I was working at a vet clinic earlier this summer and got talking to a shelter volunteer who mentioned they were looking for homes for some 30 cats rescued from a hoarder. I ended up with a little runt kitten who was sick and starving. We taught him to use the litter box and fed him milk. He started at about 12oz and now he is 12 weeks old and probably over 3lbs now.

ANYWAY thank you for making this <3

I'm so glad you can make use of it. :D My friends and I spent about two years (2006 - 2007) rescuing stray kittens in our neighborhood (one of which is the cat in the stamp); sadly, most of them were in terrible shape and didn't make it, but a few of them we nursed back to health and found homes for. And just recently I've found myself with a new kitten, which one of my friends found in a dumpster. She was in pretty bad shape at first, her feet were all messed up and she was just skin and bones. But now she's looking fit and sleek, and her feet are almost completely better, though she lost the end of one of her toes. I love my rescue cats because they have so much personality... and 9 times out of 10, they're wayyyy smarter than the purebreds some of my friends have. Hooray for rescuing kitties. :D

How adorable. If I could use stamps I would, alas, I'm too poor for a subscription and such. Anyhow, what a precious kitty. I'm with you about the strays.

Thanks. ^_^ She's about 3 years old now, but that pic is from when I first rescued her. She's a sweetie.

No, I don't mind at all. My fiance's family is very religious, and they had him on their prayer list at church. Even if I don't know what *I* believe in, I'm really touched that you'd want to include him in your prayers. Thanks.

I left a church cause they didn't believe animals had souls. of course I'll pray for the little guy ^_^
