Mwrewouw! I do like to talk and let you know how I am doing, I guess that is why they call me Oracle. I am a sweet female tabby with a little bit of an opinion. Come visit me at the sanctuary.
Wild Blue Cats is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to saving the precious lives of cats and kittens who are abandoned, abused, neglected, displaced or surrendered, and to find them permanent homes or provide lifetime sanctuary or foster care. We also conduct TNR ventures outside city limits while supporting TNR efforts inside city limits to the best of our capacity. 100% of the cats we help are spayed/neutered, vaccinated and, when not feral, microchipped.
We are committed to preventing/eliminating euthanasia of treatable and savable animals. Euthanasia is a last resort for animals suffering severe injuries or illnesses which are causing extreme discomfort and poor quality of life for the animal.
Wild Blue is a volunteer run organization, with programs ranging from subsidized spay/neuter costs for low income families to kitten therapy for at-risk populations.

Wild Blue Animal Rescue and Sanctuary is located in Black Forest. We are currently raising funds for our “Special Care Unit” for felines with extra special needs! This new building will have a nursery where pregnant and nursing mama kitties for whom we have no fosters can safely raise their babies until weaned.
We will also have space for a few FeLV and FIV positive cats who need much longer to find their forever homes, due to their health concerns. Finally, the building will have a much-needed bathroom for volunteers, a laundry area for our rescue, and an area for storage of pallets of food and litter.
Donate today to help us build a place to “Special Care Unit” and care for those hard to adopt out special needs kitties!
Disaster relief has become an important part of the services Wild Blue provides to the community. We have learned that in a natural disaster it is not only the people and animals that need support, but it is also the community shelters and rescue organizations.
Wild Blue was eager to help out with both Hurricane Harvey in Texas and Hurricane Irma in Florida providing local support to the families and the community animal organizations.
Not all kitties are immediately trusting of their new surroundings and their new caretakers. Some of them need a little more coaxing to recognize that they are in a safe place with people who aren’t going to hurt them. When your kitty’s history is one of abuse, neglect, or abandonment,…

Declawing is Amputation Declawing is not just ‘trimming’ a cat’s nails, it’s a surgical procedure akin to removing the last joint on a human finger or the last joint of a human toe…except with a cat, it’s removing ends of all their toes on their front or back feet. Think…
Wild Blue has grown tremendously over the past year, so it’s no surprise that we rescued a record high number of kitties in 2017. To keep up with the demand on our volunteers and our resources (we’re a volunteer-run organization, after all), we’re making a handful of changes this year.…

Deming came to us as a teeny kitten with a bad case of feline herpes that fused his eye shut and ultimately required surgery. His herpes, though no longer dangerous to him, still manifests in some sneezes and eye goop, but it’s nothing a damp wet rag can’t handle. Unfortunately,…
