Exciting Adoption Fair!

It was an exciting adoption fair last Saturday at MadCat! Our first spring kittens were old enough for adoption and went to wonderful new homes.

Congratulations to Kristina and Lillian, who adopted Bobblehead and Beanie Baby! 🎉

Richard and Catherine adopted Funko Pop, and they quickly posted on Reddit that they’ve already fallen in love. How could they not!? 😻 Reporting from their Reddit post, “We found this great little guy through 9 Lives Rescue. We’ve named him Leap because he was born on 2-29. … A big shoutout to 9 Lives for having such dedicated volunteers….” Awww, thank you Richard and Catherine!

If you’re looking for a new feline companion, please visit our Adopt page to view currently available cats and kittens. There you’ll also find an adoption application, and you can start the approval process. We look forward to hearing from you! 🐈

Adoption Fair, May 18, MadCat West, on Mineral Point Rd

Date: Saturday, May 18, 2024
Time: 11 AM to 2 PM
Location: MadCat Pet Supply, 7820 Mineral Point Road

Kittens and cats from 9 Lives are coming to MadCat’s Mineral Point Road location! If you’re hoping to adopt a new feline family member, this is the place to be! Join us on May 18 from 11 to 2.

Who will YOU meet at MadCat? Check out our adoptable kitties here. Let us know if there’s a specific one you’d like to meet, and we can make sure he or she is there – or we can make arrangements to suit you.

Be sure to submit an adoption application, especially if you’re hoping to take your new kitty home that day! Please allow several days for us to process your application. A real human will contact your references and confirm your status.

IMPORTANT: kittens under 12 weeks must be adopted with another kitten or go to a home with another age-appropriate cat. 9 Lives’ policy recognizes that cats are very social animals, and kittens will be happier and healthier if they can socialize with another kitten.

A big thank you to MadCat Pet Supplies for hosting us!

Thank you, Kibble 4 A Cause!

The 9 Lives Rescue coffers are $1,685 happier now, all due to the wonderful Kibble 4 A Cause radiothon fundraiser! 9 Lives’ Anna Goebel (far right) is shown at the station with Ski from JJO (also holding the presentation check) and the radio personalities from the other three participating stations. From left to right in the back: Pat Gallagher from Magic 98, Miranda from The Resistance, Kristi from Q106.

Live broadcasts were made from the event, held April 11, by all four stations. Donations poured in from the supportive community and sponsors. The event was held at Barks on Bourbon in Cross Plains.

In-kind donations were also dropped off at the event, including cat and kitten food, litter, toys and supplies. We took home quite a mountain of goodies provided by generous donors and sponsors.

Thank you to everyone who made this event possible, but especially to the local radio stations – 94.1 JJOMagic 98106.7 The Resistance, and Q106! They not only do a great job of organizing and promoting this event, they genuinely care about the work we do and the animals we help. We feel seen and supported, and we can’t thank them enough!

9 Lives Volunteer Social!

Nine of our 9 Lives volunteers enjoyed good food and conversation at the Longtable Beer Cafe in Middleton on Wednesday after work. Although the venue was a bit loud, the food and drinks were excellent. We enjoyed the chance to chat with fellow volunteers, and share 9 Lives news and experiences – with the added bonus of shared kitten photos and videos!

9 Lives Rescue at Kibble 4 A Cause

The JJO interview with 9 Lives Rescue’s Anna Goebel at the Kibble 4 A Cause event on Thursday.

9 Lives Rescue attended the Kibble 4 A Cause radiothon on Thursday morning, this year held at Barks on Bourbon in Cross Plains. We had a table indoors, while the radio stations had to set up tents outside in the chilly weather – they couldn’t broadcast from inside the metal building!

Four radio stations were present: 94.1 JJO, Magic 98, 106.7 The Resistance, and Q106, and each station interviewed many of the rescues participating. It was a full day of awareness for area rescues, and we’re so grateful!
