Adoption Tales: May Update from Cat Care Society Forever Homes

Tuesday, May 20, 2014
Adoption Assistant Karlyn Mendez shares this May recap from our new forever homes:
Bob - interacts well with his new family and the 13-year-old female cat and 10-year-old dog whom he likes to follow around. Bob loves his Neko fly toy from CCS.
Fudge - was lucky to go home to a lady who owned her own ice cream shop and she kept his name since it was fitting. He is super affectionate and acts at home like he has lived there forever.
Mr. Bigglesworth - is the only cat in his house and loves to sleep in his black sleeve bed that came from the shelter and enjoys the toys from the donated Chuck & Don’s gift basket from 9News Petline9.
Dwight - snuggles on his owner’s bed and is slowly becoming adjusted to his new home and coming out of his shyness. He indulges in cat nip and the owner is going out to buy more cat nip toys for him.
Salome - “Elondil” is very happy in her home. She loves to be held like a baby and hanging out in the bathroom sink and gazes lovingly at herself in mirrors.

Take a look for yourself: http://youtu.be/px_CPfNT_kE We'll also be welcoming Clay Cats to the auction (and we'll have those pictured soon).

Cat Care Society Partners with LoveAnimals.org to raise funds to help Shelter Kitty Wakko

Tuesday, May 06, 2014
Help Us Help Wakko!

You may know Wakko - Cat Care Society's darling teenage kitty in need of medical tests to better diagnose what we believe to be a birth defect. This defect is in his nasal passage, and it prevents him from breathing easily.

Initial estimates for just the diagnostics, not treatment, have been around $3,500. Again, that's just for tests and diagnosis. Treatment, if reasonable treatment is available, will cost additional funds, and we cannot estimate those until we fully understand what we're dealing with.

CCS has partnered with LoveAnimals.org to help us raise funds to cover the cost of Wakko's diagnostic tests. 100% of your gift will go to Wakko's diagnostic test costs - LoveAnimals.org does not keep a percentage of your donation.

And the best news - the board of directors has designated up to $1,000 to be used as a matching gift. All gifts will be matched by the board (up to the $1,000 value of the matching gift fund).
