On January 8 we had major flooding at our outdoor location in Morgan Hill, where we have offices and also have an outdoor area for feral cats. We had to evacuate the cats, and they have been living in an indoor enclosure at our other location in Morgan Hill for the past couple of weeks. The outdoor location (affectionately known as “Club Feral”) had additional flooding in the second wave of storms Jan 18-22, and we are just now finally getting everything dried out and cleaned up. We are asking for your help to get the place set up to return the cats – we have everything largely cleaned up but we need replacement bedding for the beds and feral dens for the cats. If you have used blankets or towels or cat beds that you can donate, we would appreciate it. Please contact us at email@example.com and we can let you know where you can drop off the donations (we have a location in San Jose and a location in Morgan Hill where you can drop items off). We are planning to move the cats back over the first week of February, so we would appreciate any donations of bedding in the next week. We could also use a couple of tall cat trees/towers. Finally, if you prefer, we would gladly accept monetary donations to help defray the cost of cleanup. Unfortunately we have had to spend several thousand dollars on the cleanup and dryout process. Thank you for any support you can give!...
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 in a long term commitment. Volunteer at least 4 hours a month. (evenings mostly) Responsibilities: Volunteer reports for duty, picks up several cats in their crates with a list of addresses where each cat is to be released. Once at the location, the crate is opened in a safe area away from the street to deter the cat from running in the street and into potential danger. Return empty crates to the shelter in the designated return location with the required paperwork. DONE!

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. We went to Petco on a Saturday to purchase some food for our fish. We went on a Saturday specifically so my two young sons and I could enjoy visiting the cat adoption fair. We had wanted to adopt a new cat at some point since our cat of 18 years had passed. That Saturday proved to be ‘the day’ where a volunteer walked up to me and asked if I would like to hold a kitten. He put a beautiful, friendly, loving, and happy gray kitten named Dusty in my arms, and I knew immediately that this little kitty was meant to be in our arms forevermore! All the animals I have ever adopted I always just had a ‘feeling’ the moment I met them and Dusty was absolutely the one for us! Kim was very kind and patient with me as I asked her questions about Dusty willingly educating me about kittens since I had only had a full-grown cat before. Kim also explained to me about the social...
