Feral Freedom Drivers Wanted!

Cat Blog Articles, News & Happenings
Town Cats is in need of Feral Freedom Drivers!  Will you chauffeur a feral cat on a one-way, road trip back home? Because they certainly can't drive themselves home! As a member of the Santa Clara County WECARE Coalition, a partnership between local city shelters, Town Cats provides transportation volunteers for the spay, neuter and return Feral Freedom Program operating out of the The San Jose Animal Care Center on Monterey Road.  Community cats are driven back to their original location after they have been spayed/neutered at the shelter.   They are also microchipped and vaccinated.  The volunteer shifts run about 2-3 hours at a time and volunteer hours are flexible afternoons Tuesday to Saturday. Training and mentoring are provided. Requirements: Reliable car, cell phone, GPS, and team spirit. Must be 18+ and interested…

We love to receive emails from our adoptors about what inspired them to adopt and the impact our cats have on their family. Here is one from Michelle Lawrence, who adopted Dusty and Little Bit (now Shadow) in late October. Thank you Michelle for sharing this lovely story with us, and we hope these two sweet fur-balls bring you tremendous joy! "We will be forever thankful to Town Cats and their amazing volunteers who spend countless hours fostering cats and kittens then donate their weekend time to bring their foster fur babies to adoption fairs!      Our story of adoption from one of these amazing foster moms, Kim, began at Petco.

[caption id="attachment_2357" align="alignright" width="331"] SNAZZY, is a 3-month old male with special needs.  Hand has made tremendous progress! He is a lovely and adorable little boy who needs to be adopted with his sister Mazzy.[/caption] Snazzy, along with his two sisters, Mazzy and Jazzy, were days away from being euthanized before being pulled from a local shelter where they were surrendered, by Town Cats when they were 2 weeks old, still too young to eat on their own. Placed in special Foster Care where they were monitored and bottle fed around the clock every two to four hours for the next four to six weeks, and given lots of human contact and attention.   It was quickly discovered that Snazzy was born with a mild case of Cerebellar Hypoplasia (http://chcat.org/about-ch-cats/),…

Love Pays It Forward

Love Pays It Forward

Current "Mews", Happy Tails
Anindita adopted Ian from Town Cats ten years ago when he was six years old and renamed him Daku. He provided the family with many wonderful memories but sadly he passed away in July. His family loved him so dearly that they wanted to find a way to honor the joy that their beautiful boy Daku brought them. So, Anindita contacted us to let us know they wanted to pay for the adoption of the next senior kitty in memory of Daku.  It was their way of paying forward the love that Daku shared with them the past ten years. He was a handsome man-cat and Town Cats would like to thank his family for opening up the opportunity for another kitty to find forever love. Rest in peace Daku. Because of their kindness…

Miss Kitty Opens Her Heart to Love Again

Miss Kitty Opens Her Heart to Love Again

Cat Blog Articles
We met Miss Kitty and her four beautiful 2-month-old kittens back in April of 2013. Her human mom, 85 year old Charmaine, called a TC volunteer for help and advice. Really nice, smart and caring lady who just wanted to do the right thing for Miss Kitty. Wendy, helped Charmaine spay and neuter Miss Kitty and her babies, and the kittens found homes through another rescue. Miss Kitty went back to live with her mom, Charmaine and lived 3 more wonderful years with her. Last summer, Wendy received the news that Charmaine's family wanted to sell her house, she was to move into an apartment where she could not take her sweet companion, Miss Kitty. Volunteers Sara and Wendy jumped into action and helped Miss Kitty get into Town Cats' adoption…

Get Tatie a Kitten for her 10th Birthday!

Get Tatie a Kitten for her 10th Birthday!

Cat Blog Articles, Happy Tails
Kids are the best at making birthday wishes.  Parents receive requests for a new toy, a bike, video games, etc. What about a pet? What does a parent do when their child wants a pet so passionately that she leaves countless Post-it Notes as reminders that her birthday is approaching, including specific details of her birthday wish? And Tatum (who goes by Tatie) did just that!  After finding what seemed like a zillion sticky notes everywhere with specific details of her request, her parents, Aaron and Carrie started their search for a kitten to surprise their daughter.  She had been begging for a kitten for months and the sticky notes were her game plan--and it worked! On September 18, they came to Town Cats' adoption center at Petco on Blossom…

Wanted: Cat Whisperers to Help Community Cats

Wanted: Cat Whisperers to Help Community Cats

Cat Blog Articles, News & Happenings
Once in a while, we come across a kitten or cat that is either born in an outdoor colony or through back luck and unfortunate experiences is just not socialized and therefore hard to adopt out. However, just because a kitten was born outdoors, or a cat has been living in a colony does not mean they are destined to live their lives as community cats. Here at Town Cats, we often pull cats and kittens from the city shelter. Kittens under 3 months tend to be fairly easy to socialize. Older cats display interest in people but are shy or nervous.  Often, they appear feral, but generally we find out that they just need a little love, a little patience and some time to adjust to their new surroundings indoors. Tips for getting…

We are in the middle of kitten season and it takes many hands to save these precious lives. There are many ways to help homeless kittens. [caption id="attachment_1942" align="alignright" width="404"] Arya and Sansa, adopted.[/caption] Can you offer to babysit a litter of kittens while their foster is out of town for a week?   Are you patient and kind and willing to love on some reluctant kittens who are still unsure about people? We have healthy, beautiful kittens in need of more TLC and socialization. The kittens need time and love to learn to trust people. We use toys and food to win them over. There is nothing like it—witnessing their curiosity and courage. The feeling of satisfaction is absolutely rewarding when you earn affection from a formerly scared cat;…
