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…

Jewels Incredible Journey HOME! If you recall, we had a beautiful blind female cat name Jewels that came to our shelter earlier this year hoping for her furrever home. This is how her story began: Jewels is a cat originally from Kuwait and was part of a mass rescue effort for cats which was spearheaded by our wonderful friends at Nine Lives Rescue in Redwood City, CA. A total of 50 cats were transported from Kuwait to Redwood City by airplane to start their journey in finding forever homes. As a helpless stray cat in Kuwait, Jewels was an amazing momma cat taking care of four small kittens. She fought daily through difficult circumstances to take care of her little ones. It was discovered that Jewels was intentionally injured by…

A TNR Story: How We Caught Our Cats By Gretchen Roberts This is a long tale of love at first sight. One late afternoon I was lounging on the deck of our house. I was gazing at the woodpile in the backyard when I saw a large calico cat making her way to the top of the pile. She sat down and started sunning herself in the late summer warmth. Then another movement drew my attention. A tiny gray tabby came out from under some of the logs and began a slow climb to the top of the pile to sit next to its mother. Immediately I said to my husband, “This is absolutely unacceptable!” I’ve always been a believer that cats don’t belong outside. Some cats may be successful…

Town Cats adopters Kyle Carbone & Lynze Silfies shared with us how Holly has settled into their home since being adopted to them 2 months ago: "Since the day she got here, she has brought so much joy to our everyday lives. She really enjoys working from home with Dad during the shelter in place and is always happy to greet us with the cutest little squeaks upon return from wherever we may have gone - even if it was just a 1 hour trip to the grocery store. When Mom & Dad cook dinner, she's usually right there behind us making sure we cook our meals to perfection accompanied by more squeaks. And anytime the TV is on and Mom & Dad are watching, she can be found within…

Max is a beautiful young cat that was rescued by Town Cats in the fall of 2017. He was surrendered to a municipal shelter for euthanasia because of severe glaucoma. He was only 7 months old, but his condition was so extreme that it was diagnosed as incurable. We took him in, had his condition assessed and determined that removing both eyes was his best option for complete recovery and quality of life. He spent some time in the shelter getting accustomed to his new way of life, and we helped him adjust with lots of socialization and love. He quickly blossomed and was eventually adopted by a wonderful family that was prepared to help him in any way they could, so we knew he was in the right hands!…
