Anthracite came to us from Ft. Carson practically blind in both eyes. One eye was too scarred, but after eye surgery, he regained use of his left eye. Now he has a new home and his joy and ours is complete!
Footloose found a new home as one of our volunteer’s mother’s Mother’s Day present to herself! Footloose is one of the sweetest and most beautiful young cats we ever have had at the shelter! When he lived on the eastern plains of Colorado, his family failed to notice that their kids had put a rubber band around one of his back feet, killing part of his foot. Remarkably the wound healed itself and we and our vet concluded that he didn’t need amputation or a prosthetic, but just a good home. Thank goodness a holiday occasion was around the corner to make all our dreams come true. Bon voyage kitten and have a great new life.
Here’s an interview I gave on March 22, about the abandoned cat situation.
I have removed and placed 25 of the indoor cats whose elderly owner left them behind when she moved into a nursing home. We will be trapping the ourdoor group to be spayed or neutered and released to the property as soon as this weekend. Financial assistance is greatly appreciated!
An elderly El Paso county resident didn’t intend to abandon her cats, but she has had to go into a nursing home just the same. She left behind 30 wonderful indoor cats at her home and a colony of up to 100 more cats outside.
We will be able to place most of the indoor cats with the Denver Dumb Friends League and Pueblo Animal Services. Hear the full report on Pets Matter on KRDO.
We will need funding for medical care for the outdoor cats. The shelters taking the indoor cats will be responsible for the medical costs for those cats.
We plan to start trapping the outdoor colony as early as Friday if we can make appointments.
Our lovely and well traveled girl won the forever home lottery this week and moved to Minnesota with a new owner. Logee joined us more than 18 months ago. She had been found on the mean streets of Pampa, Texas. She had been declawed at some time and was wearing her glamorous fur.
We accepted her as a transfer and she came to Colorado. She became depressed and then developed a kidney infection. She moved into our vet clinic and became the female clinic cat. After she recovered, she stayed on at the clinic and she prospered, in fact, doubled in weight!
A few potential adopters inquired, but no one was the right match. Some were afraid of ongoing medical treatments and some had too many other pets.
When the emails from Minnesota began, we crossed our fingers. The adoption went like clockwork and Logee has a new job as a watch cat for one human.
