News from the Shelter
Cat Care Society had a great month of adoptions in September - a total of 53 cats and kittens went home with new families and to their forever homes!
 
We have now taken in our first cats from
 Hurricane
Harvey....five kittens that were brought to us by Colorado rescue workers who were helping with the disaster there.  The kittens, who are named Lightning, Coffee,  Donut, Sonic, and Valero, are all 6 months or younger.  They are beginning to receive their spay/neuter surgeries and and will be available for adoption mid-October.

A very heartwarming adoption took place in September.  Sweet Elvis, a senior and also a diabetic cat, found his forever home when a
 wonderful woman adopted him last month. Special needs cats can be special in so many ways....congratulations Elvis!
 

GREAT WORK by staff and one of our volunteers who rescued 
an adventurous kitten that got stuck behind a hole in the drywall at the shelter.  Through the use of a handheld camera the kitten was located, then the drywall was taken apart and the little one was returned to safety!
October Adoption Promotion

Halloween is one of the favorite observances for many people, and we are celebrating it all month long with an adoption special on all cats with orange fur.  It may be scary to think of bringing a new pet home, but it's usually very rewarding for people and animals alike!

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 Gizmo
Gizmo is ready for her forever home!  She is an active and playful 11 year old who is looking for a home to rule.  Gizmo promises to be a kind and gentle ruler, as long as you accept her as being always in the right and the eternally lovely queen!  Gizmo loves to run and play, and watching her you would never believe she is an older lady.  She came in as a stray who we had spayed and microchipped at our clinic years ago.  We weren't able to contact her previous family, so she stayed here with us. Gizmo would need to be the only cat in a home as she does not get along well with other cats. Come in and meet Gizmo today...she's waiting for you!

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

Some Interesting Facts about Cats
 
The ability of a cat to find its way home is called "psi-traveling." Experts think cats either use the angle of the sunlight to find their way or that cats have magnetized cells in their brains that act as compasses.
   
Cats' purrs are more than a way to communicate. Bio-acoustics researchers believe that purring heals cats, as frequencies between 24-140 vibrations per minute have been found to aid bone growth, and the repair of muscles and tendons. Purring also eases breathing, and reduces pain and swelling.
 
 
 
A cat's nose has a unique pattern of bumps and ridges. No two cats share the same nose print just as the human fingerprint pattern is unique from all others. 
 
One of the reasons a kitten sleeps so much is because it releases a growth hormone during sleep.
