Happy Endings: Violet and Skippi Together at Last

Happy Endings: Violet and Skippi Together at Last

Cat Blog Articles, Current "Mews", Happy Tails
Violet was trapped in the San Jose area and brought into a local shelter a while back. The shelter asked for help from a rescue organization to help care for her, as she had a severe case of URI (upper respiratory infection), and a punture wound on her hind leg. We were able to step in and help Violet, thanks to one of our wonderful volunteer fosters. While Violet was being fostered, a former adopter shared the story with her sister Skippi. Skippi was thinking about adopting and wanted a long haired young cat, and when she heard about Violet she knew this was the perfect cat for her. Skippi was willing to wait for weeks on end so this beautiful girl could have the time she needed to get…

Darth Sidius aka Siddy was adopted two months ago, and we're happy to report that she has adjusted very well in her forever home. Her new mom said... "Two months today since Siddy came home with us and we see a huge change from the first day. She is not scared of the dog. She is a master gardener .. just replanting and rearranging the indoor plant. I am so thankful that you guys took such great care of her. She is so sweet and loving."

Foster Volunteer Orientation – March 16

Happy Tails
If you have a spare room, a flexible schedule and a warm heart, please consider becoming a foster parent for Town Cats of Morgan Hill! In exchange for free room and board, we can promise you lots of hugs and purrs! Foster parents care for young kittens and cats that aren't quite ready for adoption. The foster parents provide the personal care while Town Cats provides the medical care and guidance. In return for your care, you get training and support! And, of course, lots of love and gratitude too! You may wonder why an animal needs foster care. It’s simple. Like people who lose their homes, animals need time and a warm, safe place to get their bearings and to get ready for the next step. Ready to be…

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…

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…

How Kittens Ushered me through Grief

How Kittens Ushered me through Grief

Cat Blog Articles, Current "Mews", Happy Tails
by Betty Wenker Volunteer: Foster and Adoption Center Manager Geez, where do I begin? In the year 2014 I had to put down my cat who was on his way to being 21 years old. Then in February 2014 I lost an aunt that was like my second mother. In April 2014 I had to have my 17 year old male dog put to sleep from an injury he received. Then came May and I lost my son who had a heat stroke and died at the age of 50. I was recovering from all these losses and headed into January 2015 and lost my husband who was my best friend.  Totally unexpected!! I had an extremely hard time dealing with this loss, and with all the other losses it…

Twice the love! Twice the cuddles! It’s insanely fun to watch two kittens playing together! Two kittens can entertain each other when you're busy or away at work! There's not much added cost to having a second kitten!…
