News from the Shelter
December has been a good month with 29 adoptions so far. Due to the arrival of kittens in the last couple of months, we still have some young ones available for adoption (eleven last count!), and some who will be in foster care for some time yet. 
 
 
Our happiest news is that Nefi was adopted this month!  Nefi had been here almost three years, and finally was adopted by just the right family.  Congratulations, Nefi!

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 For those of you who like to visit our long time resident and mascot, Sue Sioux, she is now residing at the administration office across from the main  shelter.   We made this move so she could be on her kidney diet and still roam free. 

 



December Adoption Promotion


Even though Christmas day is past, we have many cats who are still wishing for a home of their own.  It's never too late to bring a new feline friend into your home and share your love with it.  We have an adoption special on all cats during December.  P lease come and visit our resident cats...you might start 2018 with a new family member!

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. 
Seminar -
The Benefits of Play

Cat behavior specialist Billie Reynolds will discuss the benefits of play for your cat, both physically and mentally.  Other topics to be covered are play and your relationship with your cat, the effect of play on behavior problems, and some of the toys to utilize.   If your cat has new Christmas toys, you might get some great ideas on how to use them!

Opt to Adopt Mehitabel
Mehitabel is ready for her forever home!  Mehitabel is an older lady who came to us after her human passed away earlier this year.  She lived her entire life with her much loved person, and really misses the close interaction she used to have with her.  Mehitabel likes to play, but her favorite thing is to cuddle  and get lots of attention.  She's very social, and will talk to people, as well as pat them on the arm if she thinks they've stopped petting her too soon.  Mehitabel does have early kidney disease, and will require a special diet, as well as regular blood tests.  Come in and meet Mehitabel today -  she's an amazing lady who would be a wonderful addition to any home!
 
Mehitabel is part of our Perpet-U- Care program! Please click the link to find out more:

Working Cats...
The Distillery Cat
 
You might think of cats as lively cute kittens, quiet soothing lap cats, or any number of other housecat types.   However, felines have been working for many years in the agricultural field, helping people to control the pests that are inevitable wherever there are grains to eat.  Distilleries, Irish and Scottish in particular, have battled this problem for centuries, and have come to depend on cats for rodent control.  In one of the oldest distilleries in Scotland, cat Towser the Mouser is reported to have killed 28,000 mice in her tenure which began in 1963!
 
Distillery life has been wonderful for many shelter cats who were born feral and not suited to being house cats. 
Of course, many working cats come to be loved as companions as well, and are valuable symbols of the business. 
 
If you would like to read some charming true tales of working cats, try Brad Thomas Parsons' book, "Distillery Cats - Profiles in Courage of the World's Most Spirited Mousers".

The Clinic at Cat Care

Dr. Abell and the Cat Clinic team continue to save lives and help cats heal!  Besides caring for the many clients' cats who come for appointments, the clinic staff has a great deal to do keeping our shelter cats healthy.  For example, many of our shelter cats need extensive dental work, like Valentina and Harvey had done recently.   One of our new cats, Mr. Peaches, had been hit by a car and had a fractured pelvis and leg.  Our doctor fitted him with a splint, and although he still limps some, is doing very well.  Another day was devoted almost entirely to spay/neuter work....the staff performed 11 spays and 8 neuters!  
 
The Cat Clinic continues to offer extended hours including Saturdays and longer weekdays. On Saturdays we are open from 8:00am until 2:00pm. Tuesday through Friday appointments are available from 7:00am until 6:00pm.
