Shelter News
     
We had 34 adoptions in October, and included in that are almost all of the youngsters who were residing in the kitten room.  We still have two kittens there now, and a number of kittens in foster care who will be available for adoption once they are big enough to be spayed and neutered!
Some of our older cats were adopted as well, including Spencer, an asthmatic cat.  Congratulations, Spencer!

A warm welcome to our new shelter technician, Jenn!  She is joining the terrific team that works so hard to care for our cats.

The shelter staff and volunteers are very happy for Ralphie, a sweet 10 year old special needs boy who was adopted into his forever home last week.  Ralphie was a business office cat for a number of years before coming to Cat Care Society.  While we will miss him, we know Ralphie is in a wonderful home now.
October Adoption Promotion


Today is the last day to take advantage of our Halloween adoption special on all orange cats and kittens.  Since it is actually Halloween, all of our orange cats are in high spirits and celebrating all day!  Stop in and see them, and perhaps take home your own special orange kitty.

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 Kit Kat

Kit Kat is ready for her forever home!  She is a lovely older lady looking for a new family.  Kit Kat is 15+ and a bit set in her ways, but still ready for love.  Kit Kat is very social and active.  She loves to climb into laps and be petted, and is still excited to chase toys dangled in front of her.  Kit Kat needs regular brushing to keep up with her long, lovely locks.  She's ready to find a home and family to spend the rest of her days with...could it be with you?
 

Kit Kat is part of our Perpet-U-Care program.  Please click the link to find out more:  http://www.catcaresociety.org/adoptions/perpet-u-care

November Adoption Promotion
Begins Tomorrow

Having cats in the home is a blessing that so many of us thankfully experience...a blessing for the cats and the people who love them.  If you do not currently have a pet in the home, please consider adopting a cat...kitties have so much love and companionship to give.  During all of November we will have an adoption special on all cats.  Please stop by and visit! 
Your Cat's Whiskers:
What They Are and Do!
 
A cat's whiskers - or vibrissae - are a well-honed sensory tool that helps a cat see in the dark and steer clear of  predators. Whiskers are highly sensitive tactile hairs with a sensory organ at the end of each whisker.  They grow in patterns on a cat's muzzle, above its  
 
eyes and elsewhere on its body, like the ears, jaw and forelegs.  
 
The vibrissae are connected securely to the sensitive muscular and nervous systems, sending information about the surroundings directly to the cat's sensory nerves, giving it a heightened sense of feeling and helping the cat to detect and respond to changes in its surroundings - sort of like kitty radar.   Grooming, trimming or cutting off a cat's whiskers is a big no-no.   Without their tactile hairs, cats become very disoriented and frightened.  In short, whiskers enable cats to analyze and make sense of their environment.
 
A cat's whiskers not only help it to gauge whether it can fit into a tight space (without even being able to see it);  they can even respond to vibrations in the air, such as when the cat is chasing prey.
 
Whiskers also serve as a way for cats to visually measure distance, which is why they are able to leap so quickly and gracefully onto a narrow ledge or out of harm's way.

Colorado Gives Day
December 5, 2017
Colorado Gives Day is one of our most significant sources of funding for Cat Care Society 
and donations received on this important day help us pay for medical care, food and litter for the 75-100 cats residing at our shelter year round. We need your support on December 5th!


Colorado Gives Day is an annual statewide movement to celebrate and increase philanthropy in Colorado through online giving. For the eighth year, Community First Foundation and FirstBank are partnering to present Colorado Gives Day on Tuesday, December 5, 2017. Donations are accepted through ColoradoGives.org
 
Colorado Gives Day
  • Colorado Gives Day is powered by ColoradoGives.org, a year-round website featuring more than 1,800 nonprofits. ColoradoGives.org encourages charitable giving by providing comprehensive, objective and up-to-date information about Colorado nonprofits and an easy way to support them online.
  • Colorado Gives Day features a $1 Million Incentive Fund. Every nonprofit receiving a donation on Colorado Gives Day receives a portion of the fund, which increases the value of every dollar donated.
Incentive Fund Key Points
  • The $1 Million Incentive Fund is a pool of dollars, provided by Community First Foundation and FirstBank, to boost every donation made through ColoradoGives.org on Colorado Gives Day.
    • For example, if a nonprofit organization receives 10 percent of the total donations made on Colorado Gives Day, that same nonprofit receives 10 percent of the $1 Million Incentive Fund.
