The famous journalist announced that he would go on location at a cat shelter to interview cats and find out what shelter life is really like. In order to complete the experience he had to temporarily abandon human speech and pretend to only be able to meow. Then he disguised himself as a Siamese Flame Point with white hair and blue eyes and allowed himself to be "captured" at Ft. Carson. After five days in the Ft. Carson Animal Rescue, he was transferred to lookwhatthecatbroughtin. His second day at the shelter, he interviewed our vet and allowed her to examine him. He was found to be in perfect health after a snap test, exam and rabies vaccination. He will go back to the clinic on Tuesday for his neuter so that he will have a complete shelter cat experience.
Although we will not post video of the actual operation, we will keep the public informed of his progress.
Since January 1, 2012, 278 cats have found loving homes. Thank you to everyone who collaborated with us to make this number a reality – the best volunteers in the world, the kind and generous donors who support us, the caring fosters who give our kitties a chance to grow up in good health, the owners who make the responsible choice to surrender rather than abandon, the veterinary medical professionals who provide the excellent medical care for our wards, staff at Petco and PetSmart who work to provide caring adoption venues, and our neighbors who watch with bemused tolerance the never-ending parade of carriers come in and out every day. Bless you all and have a wonderful new year.
Malachi on his new couch
Malachi lost his home when an allergic boyfriend moved in almost two years ago. It wasn’t that Malachi is some kind of fuddy duddy, but he had been an only pet and he wasn’t adaptable to dogs or small children. He was adopted twice and returned twice by people with dogs, despite prior admonitions about no dogs.
He met his soul mate last week. He has a whole house to share with his favorite person and it is bigger than the entire shelter. Go Malachi!
