News from the Shelter
We had 17 adoptions in January.  Included in those were a special pair....Leila and Shasta who are 14 year old kitties.  Leila is FIV (feline immunodeficiency virus) positive but that is not a problem for good kitty friends.   The virus is usually spread through bite wounds, but not through casual, non-aggressive contact.   We're so happy they found a home together, especially since one has a medical condition!  Lucy, another FIV positive kitty, also found a loving home.






                                        
                             
 
Many thanks to donor Gail Noble.  She contributed a mini-fridge to our veterinary clinic which was much needed.   Thank you so much, Gail!

Opt to Adopt Olive
Greetings! I'm Olive. I'm a gentle, low-key kitty and I'm really looking forward to meeting a wonderful person whom I can call my very own. I don't mind sharing my space with another gentle kitty, but I'm not comfortable with dogs so I'd rather have a canine-free home. I'm what they call a senior kitty, so I'm covered by the Perpet-U-Care Program which will pay for a portion of my health care for the rest of my life. That's a pretty cool program and I'm definitely worth it. I'm a very sweet girl with lots of love to share. I would like to spend some quality cuddle time with you. If you are otherwise occupied, I might gently touch you with my paw to remind you when it's cuddle time. But don't be surprised if cuddle time happens a lot!

Behavior Problems
with Your Cats?

 
 
Good Kitty Behavior Consulting and Training is a business owned and operated by Billie Reynolds, an expert in cat behavior.  If you have attended any seminars at Cat Care Society, you probably have met Billie as she presents many of our sessions.  Cat owners often experience difficult behaviors in their cats, and it is a leading cause of cats being returned after adoption.  Good Kitty's focus is on helping clients understand their cats so that pets and humans can live in harmony.  Billie's approach with individuals is to offer in-home behavior consultations, and in-home clicker training.  In-home consults work to correct a behavioral issue with the cat.  During a consult she gathers information about the cat and the details of the behavior problem.    Billie also studies the home and areas that are important to the cat.  She explains the "why's" behind the cat's behavior and provides clients with a plan.  Billie might also teach clients clicker training as a method to change cat behaviors.  In-home consults and clicker training sometimes entail other resources and products as well.  Email and telephone calls help with follow-up as the plan is enacted and questions arise.

If you are experiencing unwanted issues with your cat, please don't give up.  Problems can usually be resolved with the right approach!
