Sunflower finds the perfect home!

Sunflower finds the perfect home!

All Posts, Happy Tails
Sunflower came to us as a senior cat with hyperthyroidism. She was very underweight, however, with monthly vet visits and blood tests we were able to stabilize her thyroid. As a senior cat finding homes is always a challenge, let alone a senior with medical needs. Her loving and affectionate demeanor won the hearts of a young couple who were looking for a friend for their older cat. Having had experience with cats with special needs they were willing to give her the loving home she deserves. Sunflower has settled in with the young couple's family and their older cat. Sunflower also had her thyroid medication readjusted and she is showing signs of having it improved! She has been eating some good food, enjoying watching her dad cook nightly dinners…

April Adoptaversary Updates! April 2016 Michelle & John R. with Ray Ray and Scooter: “Everything is going well.  Scooter and Ray-Ray have trained us well.  They are very sweet boys and love to be involved in everything we do. When we walked into the Town Cats room, Scooter immediately rubbed against John’s leg. I love to say that he chose John.  When I said that we really wanted a bonded pair or littermates, we were happy to find out that Scooter had a brother. We are so happy that they have become a part of our lives.” Martha P. with Tinkerbell: “Tinkerbell grew up to be a beautiful big girl, with a hearty appetite.  She has a sweet, shy disposition.  She loves to sit in laps when not chasing her…

Birds Love Indoor Cats!

Birds Love Indoor Cats! Written by Daniel V. Photographer Jak Wonderly’s photo “Caught by Cats” created quite a stir in 2020. Pictured are 232 dead animals that were all killed by house cats. In the United States, cats kill about 2 billion birds and 12 billion mammals annually. Of all bird deaths across the US, about three-quarters are linked to cats. In Australia, cats kill an estimated 230 million birds, reptiles, and mammals a year. The feral cat population there has posed such a threat to native species that, from 2015 to 2018, 844,000 cats were culled in an effort to protect native wildlife. Clearly, pet owners—cat guardians in particular—have an important role to play in the environment. Indoor/outdoor and outdoor-only cats kill more animals each year than aircraft and…

Is Cat Wine Safe? Written by Caitlyn Conville Want to get your cat something special to celebrate their birthday or adoption? Or are you just ‘feline’ in the mood for a drink and want some company? Cat wine is a beverage designed specifically for cats and is one of the more amusing trends in the cat-loving, wine-drinking community. But before you ‘purr’ kitty a glass, read on to see if cat wine is the right choice for your furry companion. Most importantly, cat wine does not contain any alcohol or grapes.

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.…
