The Clinic at Cat Care Society
We are excited to welcome Kathleen Hoover, our new Clinic Manager.  This is a new position at Cat Care Society, and will serve to increase and improve the impact The Cat Clinic has on the shelter pets and in the community. Kathleen recently moved to Denver from her hometown of Kansas City. She was the Veterinary Practice Manager at Lawrence Veterinary Hospital for 5 years and prior to that was the Shelter Manager at the Humane Society of Greater Kansas City for 2 years. She has a degree in Architecture from the University of Kansas. Kathleen brings with her a wealth of knowledge in operating an animal hospital as well as a passion for our feline friends. 
Kathleen has a heart for the "special" fur kids and has adopted animals with various medical and behavioral challenges. She currently has a Cornish Rex cat named Wanda who was rescued from a physically abusive owner. Kathleen has also had the pleasure of sharing her heart and home with a sassy torti girl and a blind buff boy as well as a boxer, a pit bull, and a French bulldog. She enjoys hiking in the mountains and exploring downtown Denver. 
Join us in welcoming Kathleen to Colorado! The next time you are by the shelter, stop by the Clinic to say hello. Her door is always open should you have questions, comments, or concerns about The Cat Clinic. She is looking forward to meeting you all!

Shelter News 
Lapis
We had 27 adoptions in February, and one was very special.  Lapis, a young adult lady who is both FIV and FeLV, found her forever home.  We're so happy for her and know she is in a wonderful place.

A very generous supporter donated a full size Shark  vacuum to the shelter.  Thank you so much!

The first pregnant mom has arrived at CCS and has been sent to foster care until her kittens are born.  The kittens will remain in foster care until they are big enough for adoption.


One of our new residents at the shelter is a beautiful silver Bengal. 
Please come in and meet this unusual girl!

We are very much in need of canned cat food for the shelter and the food bank.  Please help if you can...we appreciate your support! 

March Adoption Promotion


March can be a scary month as National Alien Abduction Day is on March 20th.  There are various tactics to prevent abduction, but by far the best is the purr of a cat.  A cat's purr, also known as Pallasethesia Ultroneous Radular Rataplan, produces a sound wave that supposedly aliens cannot tolerate.  All cats purr, some louder than others, but if you have a cat with you it will ensure your safety from aliens!  Our March adoption promotion offers chances to win special discounts by spinning the wheel!  Please come in, try your luck, and see if you find a special kitty friend.

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 Moekie

Moekie is a sweet senior looking for her forever home! Moekie is so healthy and active that it's hard to believe she is 14!  She is a talker and promptly lets you know she wants some of those treats hiding in your pocket. When you spend time alone with her, she is quick to show her affectionate and loving side. Moekie doesn't care for other cats and wants to be queen of the castle.
She is on a special diet and takes an oral steroid for digestive issues, but she is well worth it.  

Moekie is part of our perpet-u-care program! Please click the link to find out more:  http://www.catcaresociety.org/adoptions/perpet-u-care

The Importance of Neutering
Every year 13-15 million dogs and cats are euthanized in shelters.  These are the ones lucky enough to end up at caring animal shelters.  The rest are not as fortunate and die from accidents, starvation, exposure, poisoning, disease, abuse, or neglect.  The best way to prevent the continuous breeding of domestic pets is by neutering.  A male cat can father thousands of offspring in his lifetime.  A female can easily have 100 kittens in her productive life.

Cat Care Society is dedicated to controlling pet overpopulation.  We spay or neuter every cat that is adopted out from our shelter, and the cost is included in the adoption fee. 

We offer low cost spay and neuter procedures at the Clinic at Cat Care Society.  If you have a cat that has not been neutered, please do your part toward population control and have this done for your pet.  Every single one makes a difference!
