Shelter News 
March was another good month of adoptions with 26 cats finding new homes.  It was unusual, and very special, that seven pairs of cats were adopted, some of whom were siblings and some were mother and daughter.  If cats are bonded and very close to one another, we never separate them.  They are always adopted together to ensure their happiness.

A happy birthday to Dagwood, one of our alumna who was adopted at age 19 by a wonderful family.  Dagwood just celebrated his 21st birthday with them!
Congratulations to Vail who
was recently adopted.  Vail is a very special
kitty and we are so happy for him.


April Adoption Promotion

We are celebrating spring and thinking of all the fun ways you can play with your cats.  April 22 is National Jelly Bean Day, and jelly beans make great tossing, rolling, and chasing toys.  In observance, we have a $75 adoption fee on all cats 1 year and older.  Please come by and see if a kitty playmate is waiting here for you!

Please visit our Facebook page for more information.
Visit our website to view all our cats available for adoption.
Note: our standard adoption  screening process applies to this promotion. Further, for cats age ten and older and cats with chronic medical problems we offer our Perpet-U-Care Program which provides
$250 of veterinary care services at the CCS Cat Clinic annually. 
Opt to Adopt Ilari

Hello there. I'm Ilari. I was left alone when my person lost his home. It was lucky for me that I ended up at the Cat Care Society. They are taking really good care of me here and getting me ready for my new forever home. I'm really a good boy, but right now I'm a bit out of sorts and don't really want to be touched.  Who could blame me? I've had a tough time after losing my human. I'm getting better though, and I know that it won't be long before some wonderful person (preferably a guy because ladies and kids scare me a bit  right now) comes to meet me and we are new best friends. See you soon!

A cat does not have a collarbone, and so it can fit through very small openings.

The righting reflex, an orientation ability enabling a cat to land on its feet, has helped some cats to survive falls from 32 stories.


Cats usually give birth to between one and nine kittens.  The largest litter on record is nineteen kittens.
