CC was brought back to the Shelter because she just did not seem to be doing well. She was not eating and not using the litter box. She is one of those cats that just seems happier in the Shelter rather than the PetSmart environment. All that noise, people, other animals, and different volunteers every day can be stressful on a cat. Don't worry about her...she will be fine with us!
Mira and Jerry came down to the store first and went into the big cage. They do not need to be adopted together. They were not together at the Shelter and are not litter mates. Mira came in as a very young kitten back in June. Jerry came in a way back in December of 2011. Poor guy has been growing up in a cage.
Coco and Paige went to PetSmart today. Coco is a torbi and is a little bit over two years old. What a lovebug!! She is a total lap cat! It is always amazing when we see cats like this continually get overlooked. She quietly sits and wait for someone to notice her and they don't. You guys are gonna love her! She loves attention and loves people.
Spring has sprung which means kitten season is right around the corner. Please encourage everyone you know and everyone you come in contact with to spay and neuter their cats. Many low cost and no cost options are available in Cape May County. Tell people to call the Shelter or call the Animal Alliance of CMC for advice and guidance. There is a clinic every Thursday next door to the Shelter. It is very easy to remember the phone number for the Alliance: 465-NEUT (short for neuter). Very helpful and very accomodating!!!
The April schedule looks great. Below is the dates that still need to be filled:
Sunday, April 7, AM Cleaning

Thank you all very much for taking care of everything while I was away. It is nice to have such committed and reliable people volunteering. You all truly make a difference!!
