    Thanks so much Andrea for your kind words. We did arrive in Fla with 6 rescue cats, 1 kitten and our dog Alice. AA was great and we had no problems.

    Actually we did a 'trail' adoption in the last week and it worked really well. \

    This is how it will work:

    - Email me like usual and I will contact one of the two vets I am working with as well as some rescue people I know. I will be able to coordinate everything from here.

    We have all our supplies at two different vets.

    - You can contact me when you are coming down w/ supplies and I will let you
    know which vet needs the supplies.

    All proceeds will go to spay/neuter of the cats here and any 'kitten rescue' expenses where we have foster parents on the island.

    I'm so happy that I will be able to continue my work in Aruba. I am
    150% committed to keep my work going there.

    Aruba and it's cats/kittens have a very special place in my heart and
    I don't think I could ever stop doing everything I can for them!

    Thanks again everyone! Without everyone here on the boards, we couldn't have rescued and gotten homes for the 100 cats/kittens over the last five years

    I will still be active on the boards and keep abreast of what's going on.
    Couldn't just leave you guys!

    Is it still possible to adopt a puppy or kitten from Aruba? What website do I go to to look at the available animals?

    Stray Cat & Dog Rescue and Adoptions

    I am sure not many people know that there is an animal rescue in Aruba. We love our pets at home and when we see a stray cat or dog in Aruba that is thirsty or hungry, it really hurts! However, the organization in Aruba that tries very hard to rescue these animals has a tough nut to crack because they do not have the necessary funds to neuter these animals, build a shelter or the funds to feed these poor animals. As well, I was advised that if any visitor wants to adopt any of these animals and bring them home, it is very easy. I am not sure how this is done, but maybe Lizzardo from this forum who has done such a wonderful job with the animal rescue will be able to provide you with some information. The last time we were in Aruba near the Aruba Beach Club next store to Manchebo we saw a beautiful skinny gold and white tabby that was sitting on one of the first floor terraces at Aruba Beach Club. He was hungry and thirsty. I tried going over to him, but he just ran into the bushes. I remember seeing him with his family of beautiful kittens last November and now it seems he is the only one left. If anyone out there has any ideas or suggestions how to assist the Aruba animal rescue or wants to adopt a beautiful cat or dog and bring them home, please post on this forum. We love Aruba so let us see what we can do to help the stray Aruba cats and dogs.

    i think that i have been feeding the kitty of which you speak karen!
    the kitty i have befriended is very skittish. is a boy. will approach cautiously and climb onto my lap. he will not allow himself to be picked up and he is very very skittish. the staff here feed him and in his case, i think he is pretty content and relocating him may not be in his best interest. he is quite smart and content.

    Some resorts enjoy having assistance with rodent extermination.
    Is your new friend neutered Andrea?
