Purr Prints of the Heart Fundraiser to Help the Cat Care Society Kitties

Sunday, August 09, 2015

Photo courtesy of Deborah Barnes.

Purr Prints of the Heart is a heartwarming and beautiful story told from Mr. Jazz's perspective (with a little typing help from his human, Deborah Barnes).  He chronicles his life from the time he was a kitten through adulthood to his afterlife at the Rainbow Bridge.  Cat lovers everywhere will be able to relate to the memories Mr. Jazz shares.  
This book touched me deeply.  When I read the prologue and discovered that Mr. Jazz had passed away exactly one year before my beloved Jewel (who passed away August 28, 2014), I immediately felt a connection with Mr. Jazz and Deb.  Little did I know then how much impact this book would have on my life and my grieving process. 

Mr. Jazz's passing made me cry quite a bit, and it may make you cry, too.  But please don't let that stop you from reading this amazing book!  The tears I cried were healing.  Mr. Jazz's story brought me so much comfort and peace.  After I finished the book, I felt I had more closure on Jewel's passing, and I felt a great deal of peace knowing that she is in a beautiful place now.  



Jewel was a gorgeous, loyal, and loving cat.  I miss her every day.

Deb has graciously offered to donate 10% of all Purr Prints of the Heart book sales for the month of August to Cat Care Society in honor of Jewel and Mr. Jazz! 

Please help the kitties at Cat Care by purchasing a copy of Deb's book.  It is an amazing book any cat lover will enjoy.  I believe it is especially helpful for cat parents who have had to (or will have to) say good-bye to a beloved companion.  

You can purchase the print or Kindle editions of Purr Prints of the Heart on Amazon.  You can also order the book directly through Deb.  When you order a book directly through Deb, she will autograph it, tissue paper wrap it, and send you a beautiful keepsake bookmark.  You can order a copy of the book directly through Deb by emailing her at: info@zzppublishing.com.  

We will be holding a book discussion group for Purr Prints of the Heart on September 26th at Cat Care Society in the lower level classroom.  

You can find Deborah Barnes by visiting her website, blog, Zazzle store, Zee & Zoey's Facebook page, and the Purr Prints of the Heart Facebook page.  

Author Bio: Deborah Barnes resides in the tropical paradise of South Florida with her fiancé and feline family of seven.  She is the author of the 5-star rated books, The Chronicles of Zee & Zoey - A Journey of the Extraordinarily Ordinary and Purr Prints of the Heart - A Cat's Tale of Life, Death, and Beyondas well as the award winning blog Zee & Zoey's Cat Chronicles that continues to cover the everyday journey she shares with her cats along with topics from the humorous behaviors of cats to very serious subjects on pet responsibility.  Deborah was awarded 2013, "Writer of the Year" by Friskies Purina on behalf of the Cat Writers' Association and she is also the Secretary of the nonprofit,Pawsitively Humane, Inc. of Miami, Florida, whose mission is to create public awareness and reduce the numbers of animals on the streets and in shelters through an extensive educational campaign.

Jarrett is a handsome black panther who should be available for adoption soon.  He came to the shelter with a broken leg and had to spend some time on cage rest while his leg healed.  He is still favoring his leg, but he is now able to roam freely.  

Jarrett is a friendly and affectionate cat.  He enjoys being held, sitting in your lap, and being pet.  He also enjoys playing.  Jarrett gets along well with the other kitties in the hall.

He is approximately two years old, neutered, up-to-date on vaccinations, and litter box trained.  He has tested negative for FIV and FeLV.  

You can find this handsome boy in the upstairs hallway at Cat Care Society.  Please stop by and visit him.  I know you'll fall in love with this sweet cat!  

ADOPTION SPECIAL

This Saturday, August 8th, is International Cat Day!  To celebrate our feline friends, Cat Care Society is holding an adoption special.  You can adopt any cat one year old or older this Saturday for $8.80.

A Fundraiser to Help Cover Jarrett's Medical Bills

Tuesday, July 28, 2015


Jarrett came to Cat Care Society when a Good Samaritan found him wandering around in their yard.  When Jarrett came to the shelter, his body was covered with scratches and bite wounds.  More concerning, however, was that Jarrett was limping.  An x-ray revealed that he had a non-displaced fracture of the metacarpal bone in his front left leg.  

Jarrett has been in a cast on cage rest and will need to continue with this treatment for four weeks in order for his leg to heal properly.  Once his leg is fully healed, he will be available for adoption.  Jarrett is a trusting cat who would like to find a loving forever home to call his own.

You can help Jarrett by donating through the Animal Rescue Site to cover his health expenses.  Please go HERE to make a donation.

Adoption Tales By CCS Shelter Assistant Karlyn Mendez

Monday, July 27, 2015
Our 'Forever Home' recap from June 27th:

London (pictured here) - “Jasmine” found a home with one of our new volunteer socializers and her family. She is doing quite well in her new home and her personality has improved ten-fold. She chirps during playtime with owners and loves the fresh air from the window.

Wyatt & Alex - “Oder & Uller” were adopted by two men. Both cats like watching owners do their yard work and hate the washer and dryer. Oder likes to bat toys and Uller window watches. 

Benji - “Arthur” also got a home with one of our volunteers. He shares his home with 4 other cats. He is still a bit timid but is content and purrs a lot.

Douglas - “D.C.” (Stands for Douglas Cat) is a very wired and hyper kind of guy. Definitely doesn’t need coffee to wake up! He is an only child and is adjusting to his home.

Cheddar - “Brio” feels very at home and tolerates the older cat. She enjoys her owner’s lap and loves pets.
