$250 of veterinary care services at the CCS Cat Clinic annually.

Shelter News

February was another very exciting month of adoptions: we found homes for 51 cats last month!  We are so happy with this upward trend and that our mission is becoming more successful all the time....helping the many neglected, homeless, and abused cats in the community.

We had two very special adoptions recently...Peaches, an 8 year old with food allergies, and Gabby, a 16 year old with kidney issues.  It's wonderful when special needs kitties find loving homes and people to care for them.
 

Catty Hour
Friday, March 22nd
Our next Catty Hour is scheduled for Friday, March 22nd, from 6 to 8 PM at the shelter. Whether you need to unwind after the week, or just love cuddling and playing with cats, it's a perfect event for you.  This is an adults only evening, and donations are appreciated.  Please contact Suellen Scott at 303-239-9680 x 19, or email sscott@catcaresociety.org.
      
 
 

Roaring and Purring in Cats 
Ever wonder why big cats roar and smaller cats purr?  Well, somewhere in the evolutionary process, a physical difference occured in the voice box.  In big cats such as lions, tigers, and cheetahs, the triangular bone around the vocal chords is flexible allowing for more expansion and stretch than in smaller cats.  This greater range of movement is what produces the long, deep vibration of a roar.  In smaller animals, like our cat friends, the bone is rigid and the vocal chords are more contained resulting in the purr that we all love to hear.  Additionally, scientists have studied the purr of cats through the years and have discovered that the purr not only signals happiness, but can also be heard when a cat is in distress or pain.  The vibration of the purr actually has self-healing qualities.  The rhythm causes the body's connective tissue to open, moving more oxygen through the blood, more antibodies to a wound, and more pain reducing enzymes and hormones.
Yoga with the Cats
Sunday, March 24, 2019


Join our limber kitties for Yoga with the Cats on Sunday, March 24th, from 4 to 5PM at the shelter.  Whether you are experienced or a beginner, this will be an enjoyable class.  Water and music are provided, and the class is led by a certified instructor.  The fee is $20, and all of that benefits our cats. 
 
Space is limited, so please contact Suellen Scott soon at 303-239-9680 x19, or email sscott@catcaresociety.org

Fostering Seminar
Saturday, March 30th, 2019
Presenter: Rianda Copeland, Director of Medical Care at CCS

Date:  Saturday, March 30, 2019
Location:  Lower Level of Main Shelter
Time:  10:30am to 1:00pm
   
Rianda Copeland, our Medical Care Director, will give a broad overview of our foster program, and all that it provides to the cats in foster care.  This is a valuable class for volunteers who are already foster parents, and very informative for those who might be interested in fostering cats.   There will be plenty of time for Q & A as well.  With kitten season approaching, and numerous adult cats who would benefit from this care, we are in need of good people.  Click here to read about our foster program.

Please note that this class goes longer than our usual seminars due to all the material to be covered.

For more Information:
Please call 303-239-9680 or email: 
Please register soon as space is limited.
 

Opt to Adopt Jackie
Jackie, a lovely five and a half year old kitty,  is our featured cat this time. 
She was first brought in as a stray and was a mom to 5 babies. She turned out to be very cranky in the shelter environment and we knew she needed to be the only cat in the home. Jackie was adopted, but was brought back by the owner after she had been fighting with the neighbor's cat. We discovered that the owner had been letting her go outside, and she was injured during one of the fights. Jackie had  her wounds bandaged and was put on heavy antibiotics due to infection, but has made a full recovery and is now  very loving towards people. She still does not like other cats and would prefer to remain the only feline in the home.
