Opt to Adopt Lucy by Sierra M. Koester, Cat Care Society Volunteer

Tuesday, January 06, 2015
Lucy


Lucy is a beautiful Brown tabby and white Domestic Shorthair.  She is very sweet and outgoing.  She enjoys being petted, getting brushed, and receiving attention.  

Lucy came to the shelter when her person needed to go into an assisted living facility and could no longer keep her kitties.  Lucy is approximately 11 years old.  Don't let her "senior" status stop you from getting to know her, though.  Here are several great reasons senior cats make perfect companions.  Due to Lucy's "senior" status, she is part of the Perpet-U-Care program, which will pay for a portion of her veterinary care for the rest of her life.  

You can get to know Lucy by visiting our shelter.  Lucy is usually hanging out on the front counter in the upstairs hallway or behind it on one of the desks.  Lucy will be looking forward to your visit!

Elizabeth is a pretty mediumhair gray and white cat.  She is outgoing and talks a lot; she'd be happy to tell you all about herself.  Elizabeth is very sweet and friendly.  She enjoys being petted, and you can often find her on or near the front desk. 

  

As you can see, Elizabeth had fun at our Santa Paws Festival in early December.  She really enjoyed laying in the pile of stuffed animals; she was there for hours!

Eight Reasons to Adopt a Senior Cat by Sierra M. Koester, Cat Care Society Volunteer

Friday, November 21, 2014

November is Adopt a Senior Pet Month, and there are lots of wonderful senior kitties waiting for forever homes at Cat Care Society.

Why adopt a senior cat?  Here are just a few reasons.

1. Whereas a kitten's personality is still developing, a senior cat's personality has already developed.  You'll know right away whether your senior kitty is a lap cat, talkative, quiet, or playful.  Please keep in mind, though, that shelters are stressful places for cats, so a senior's personality might not shine through as strongly as it will once she adjusts to her new home.

2. Senior kitties often still enjoy play sessions with their people or other feline companions, but you probably won't have to worry about him getting into things he shouldn't.  Kittens, on the contrary, often get into mischief and need a lot of supervision.

3. Older cats are typically already litter box trained.

4. Senior kitties are typically more patient and tolerant than kittens.  They may be the best choice for homes with children.

5. Older cats provide great companionship.  Many adult cats are happy to curl up and nap in your lap or near you while you watch your favorite TV program or read a book.

6. Cats are living long, happy lives today.  It's not uncommon for a cat to live into her late teens or twenties.  Don't let the fear of not having much time with a senior cat keep you from adopting one.  She could have many good years left!

7. Seniors typically have better manners than younger cats.  An older cat probably understands he can scratch his scratching post but not your couch.  He knows he can sleep on your bed at night, but he shouldn't bite your toes while you're asleep.  And he understands he can climb his cat tower but not your curtains.

8. Many older kitties find themselves at the shelter through no fault of their own.  Perhaps their former owner passed away or went to a nursing home.  Maybe their family moved and couldn't take their cat with them.  When you adopt a senior, you are giving her a second chance at a happy, loving forever home, and she will happily reward you with her friendship and unconditional love. 

Cat Care Society has many wonderful seniors looking for their forever homes.  You can see them all on the Cats for Adoption page. 

Opt to Adopt Cairo by Sierra M. Koester, Cat Care Society Volunteer

Tuesday, November 18, 2014

Cairo is a beautiful senior black panther.  She's very friendly and affectionate and enjoys being petted and brushed.  

Cairo came to the shelter when her person passed away.  Though she misses her person, she has a lot of love to give a new human companion.  She would like to find a nice quiet home.

She is 14 years young.  Due to her age, Cairo is part of the Perpet-U-Care program, which will pay for a portion of her veterinary care for the rest of her life.  She is already spayed and up-to-date on all of her vaccinations.  

You can find sweet Cairo in the upstairs hallway at Cat Care Society.  She looks forward to showing you why she makes the purrfect companion! 

Opt to Adopt Jake… by Sierra M. Koester, Cat Care Society Volunteer

Monday, November 17, 2014
We'd like to welcome Cat Care Society Volunteer Sierra M. Koester to our communications team as a digital content creator. She socializes CCS cats usually every week at the shelter and will now be sharing her 'Opt To Adopt' columns and other interesting cat information with us on the Cat Care Society blog and Tumblr. In addition to blogging and freelance writing, Sierra is Cat Mom to two wonderful kitties, Carmine and Lita. 

Here's a posting by Sierra from last Tuesday about Jake in the Red Room: 

"Jake is a handsome black and white mancat with medium hair. Jake was adopted from Cat Care Society when he was younger, but somehow (nobody knows how exactly), he found himself at another local animal shelter who returned him to Cat Care to find a new happy home.

Jake's fur was a little matted when he returned to Cat Care, so they gave him a nice haircut. He looks super adorable and he's so very soft with it!

Jake loves affection; he gave me lots of head bonks when I visited him. He is also talkative and would make a good chatting buddy.

Jake is approximately seven and a half years old. He is declawed (not Cat Care's doing), neutered, and up-to-date on his vaccinations. You can find him in the Red Room at Cat Care Society, located at 5787 W. 6th Avenue in Lakewood, CO.

Jake will be eagerly awaiting your arrival so he can show you just what a great companion he is!"

November Adoption Tales from CCS Alumni Forever Homes

Thursday, November 06, 2014
Thanks to CCS staff member Karlyn Mendez, reporting from the Cat Care Society adoption desk:

Ohms and Wind-Up (pictured) - live with a retired woman. Wind-Up is more outgoing and Ohms is a bit more shy but coming around. Wind-Up loves the laser light and feather toys and Ohms beats around a squeaky mouse at night.

Amanda - “Miss Amanda” shares her home with an older woman. Being affectionate and loving the woman just adores her and considers her a good fit.

Macy - tolerates the 3 dogs in her house and loves laps and does great with visitors that come to the house. Her favorite hobby is to gaze at the birds in the bird feeders by watching out the windows.

Gregory - “Nelson” was brought home by a woman who also has a lab and border collie. He is adjusting to the dogs and will occasionally play with toy mice and balls but really prefers cuddles.

Pepper and Zyah - live with a couple and their adult children. Zyah made herself at home immediately while Pepper was a bit hesitant at first. They have a dog and 3 other cats for roomies. All the cats ignore the dog since they have their own personal cats-only club going on.

Panther - “Herbie” went home with a young couple. He loves his wand toy and is super affectionate with everyone he meets.
