A Day in the Life of a Cat for Hire

A Day in the Life of a Cat for Hire

Cat Blog Articles, Happy Tails
A Day in the Life of a Cat for Hire   Meet Tiger, a lean mean feline machine who patrols a ranch down near Calero Reservoir along with his cat buddies. Tiger arrived at his home through Town Cats.  While in foster care, it was painfully apparent that Tiger was never going to be happy living the life of an inside pet.  This guy had been found living outside, he had introduced himself to his foster mother by bringing birds to her patio…this was a cat who’s heart and mind yearned for open space, for the hunt, for endless opportunities to climb and stalk…but who still sought out human company.  Humans were great for pets, for long naps on laps with the purr motor on overdrive, and for entertaining strolls…

Sometimes all it takes is time

Sometimes all it takes is time

The adopter Jerri wrote this from the cats: Dear Foster Mothers, We want to thank you for taking care of us long enough for someone to find us and give us a new home.  We live in a 2300 square foot cat-condo on the second floor that has over 22 windows. This makes bird watching a great pleasure and allows us to survey our outdoor territory in safety.

Lillie Bug’s Fairy Tale

Lillie Bug’s Fairy Tale

Happy Tails
One of the absolute favorite cats in 2014 at Town Cats Pet Food Express Adoption Center was 2 year old Lillie. Nicknamed  "Lillie Bug". Sarah our dedicated adoption counselor said that when Lillie first came she was extremely frighten and wouldn't let any one touch her.  It took a good 4-5 months before volunteers could pet her with a feather toy and then with their hands. Eventually she would jump out of her cage and would let people touch her as they walked by. She grew friendlier every month. A few days after Christmas Sally came in wanting a calm cat for her quiet home. She saw Lillie in her cage and felt so bad for her she had to take her home. Now Lillie enjoys laying with Sally while she reads a book. Of course her feathers are not far and she lays on them so…

Many kittens come into our care without their moms for various reasons and they need a foster family to help raise them until they are old enough to be adopted.
