March Adoptaversaries! Gathered by Denali R. March 2016 Adoptaversaries! Beth Johnson with Kimba: "We are all so glad we brought this baby into our home. He's headbutting my leg right now as I type. We renamed him Kimba (after the white lion in the anime series). He's a little rough around the edges, but when you start off in life as he did, it's no surprise the world is still a little scary. He went from bitey and scratchy to purring and cuddly. He talks all the time. He's just wonderful, and we adore him. You can see more pics of him on my Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/planetary_pan/ plus all our other cats, including our tortie, who also came from Town Cats. Her original name was Sabrina, but we call her Chessy.…

February Adoptaversaries   These are several adoptaversaries for the month of February! Thanks to our case managers, the stories of our lovely felines keep coming in. These are February's Adoptaversaries! February 2017 Updates Itohan Ellis with Loki: "Thank you so much for getting in touch and checking in on Loki - it's truly heartwarming. Loki is doing extremely well. She's 200% part of the family and knows it! She loves the girls and shows it.  Her personality is quite unique - she'll often lie on her back with legs splayed out and snooze, she considers mice friends and playmates, she likes to climb into bed with you and somehow ends up sleeping on your head... the list goes on.  Basically, we love her to bits and couldn't imagine being without her." …

Home For The Holidays: Ginger Finds A Home Written by Nin Parker & Jose Parra In most animal shelter settings, there is that subset of the population that requires a tad bit more time to build a trusting bond. At Town Cats, aside from some of our newly arrived shy residents, we have our Legacy Cats who, aside from ever so friendly senior Christy, are some of our most difficult to place due to their undersocialized personalities. One of these Legacy Cats is Ginger who had been with us since before Rosi, our founder, passed away. Fortunately, there are saviors that alleviate the undersocialized population by being able to form a bond, where others deemed unfeasible. Sometimes a person has such an innocent personality that a cat can sense humility…

From Fearful To Friendly!

From Fearful To Friendly! By C. M. Saracco He appeared near our porch one day:  a shy, striped grey cat.  Crouched beneath a bush, he eyed the empty food bowl that I’d left out for a neighboring stray. When I called him, he hissed and ran. I went inside, refilled the bowl, and placed it on the porch.  My mystery guest was nowhere to be seen.  But a few minutes after I retreated into the kitchen, he crept towards the bowl. Young and slim, he had a clipped left ear, which told me he was a feral or stray male who’d been trapped, neutered, and released.  By the looks of it, this kitty was well under a year old. Weeks passed before I could get close enough even to take…

A Special Story About A Special Cat

A Special Story About A Special Cat

A Special Story About A Special Cat Written by Amber Le As we frequently see many cats find their special homes, one of our most heartfelt stories is about Wendy (now known as Winnie). Wendy pretty much had the whole package: exotic looks, a loving nature, and her overall positive presence. However, it was a bit hard for her to be adopted. She has a condition called feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) which severely weakens her immune system. FIV is only contagious through deep bite wounds and cats with this condition tend to live long, healthy lives. Wendy’s charm and affectionate behavior usually caught people’s eye but potential adopters would usually worry about her health. As a result, she remained at the shelter for a while. As the days went by…

Naomi Smalls Goes Home!

All Posts, Happy Tails, Meet Our Pets
Naomi Smalls came to our shelter as a surrender in May when she was just 6 months old. Having moderate-severe Cerebellum Hypoplasia (CH), She cannot keep her balance and has trouble walking.  CH is a neurological condition in which the cerebellum is smaller than usual or not completely developed, and it has been reported in many animal species. Naomi lived in a wonderful foster home where she was socialized and given the love and care that her needs require.  She was adopted by a former volunteer who wanted to open her heart and home to a special needs cat. Ensuring that her home was made safe for Naomi and doing extensive research to be able to provide her with the purrfect home, she is now happy and healthy in her…
