Do Something!


If you can't adopt,
maybe you can sponsor a kitty.
If you can't adopt,
maybe you can foster a kitty.
If you can't have a kitty,
maybe you can volunteer with our rescue!

And if you can't do any of the above,
maybe you can donate to our rescue
so that we can save more kitties from high-kill shelters.

Thank you for your continued support of
We simply couldn't do it without you.

Cat Play

The All Important Play Sequence...

Cats are such agile, stealthy, and athletic predators. The same characteristics that allow a jaguar to ambush prey permit house cats to jump with precision off the sofa. We only need watch cats play to gain an impression of their predatory prowess. And yet many people are unable to get their cats to play at all. This is not actually so remarkable if you watch how they’re playing with their cats. In short, they’re doing it wrong.

To Care For Cats Or Not?

To Care For Cats Or Not – That Is The Question
via ASPCAProfessional

 A new study provides interesting info on those who care for unowned cats. Dr. Emily Weiss ponders how the results might impact how we reach out to these folks in our own communities.

Recently a study was published in PlosOne focused on cat ownership perception and caretaking. The manuscript is rich with valuable information for those conducting or developing programs and processes that rely on interaction with people caring for cats. Previous research has identified that individuals feeding unowned cats are likely to be supporting cats who are not sterilized, making the understanding of the perceptions of cat ownership and the behavior of those who care for unowned cats an important tool for the development of solutions to cat homelessness.

September Cat of the Month


My Story:
Meet Victoria!

I am a 10 year old female kitty
that was rescued from Lancaster Shelter
My family surrendered me because they were moving.
I'm fully medically vetted and microchipped.
I'm also super sweet, but it would be best
if I was the only cat in your home.
I love people and children.

I want a second chance at having a safe and loving
forever home...please adopt me.
I'm waiting.

If you're interested in Victoria
please CONTACT US.
