Footloose Hops Along to new home for Mother’s Day!

photo-6Footloose 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.

Osiris, pictured above, is about six years old. His son Tut is three. They are in relatively good health, but needed some deferred maintenance Tut also has a heart murmur. We prefer to adopt them together to someone who has experience with Sphynx cats.

Abandoned Cat Update

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!

Help Us Save Some Abandoned Cats!

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.

Logee moves to Minnesota!

Miss Logee-7816 (2)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.


Our beautiful girl lost her battle with mammary cancer on February 4, 2014.  We thank her foster parent Lynette and her veterinarians, Dr. Chris McReynolds at SCIVM and Dr. Cynthia Reed at Aspenwood for their loving kindness and expert medical care. Shekina will live in our hearts forever.
Beautiful Shekina
