Finally Some New Cats Arrrive!!

Dagmar left over the weekend and will be living with two dogs - a boxer and a mixed breed - and an adult couple.  They had a cat for 16 years and were missing feline company.  Happy tails, Dagmar!

I know you are all anxious to meet some cats!!  Well, they arrived at the store today and they are wonderful! Both of these cats are previous adoptions from us to the same home. We are not happy about what happened next. 

Kato, the black male just over a year old, was adopted from us in late summer of last year.  He was brought in as a stray in mid-March of this year.  Of course he was microchipped so we called the owner.  The owner said she did not want Kato anymore!  Nice, huh??  Well, THREE days later Happy, a black and white female about two years old,  came in as a "found cat" by animal control.  Happy was microchipped and had been adopted by the same person as Kato.  Again - we call the owner who does not want her either.  Now that person is on our Do Not Adopt list.  Fortunately both cats are nice and friendly and quite adoptable!  Happy and Kato can stay together or go to different homes.  Both cats will acclimate to a house with cats, kids or dogs. 
Below is a flyer with details about a promotion for the month of April.  Please share it on your Facebook page, print it out and distribute it, email it, just get it out there!!  Sonny DiCrecchio, the person covering the adoption fees, has a second home in Stone Harbor and is the owner of Philadelphia Wholesale Produce Market.  He approached me a couple of months ago with the idea.  You may recognize Shelter mascots Scottie (the police dog) and Mason (the prisoner). We so enjoyed dressing them up for Halloween and were excited to use their pictures.  We so loved those two!
Below are the dates that need coverage for the Month of April.  Please let me know if you are available to cover any of them.  Deb and Warren are finally coming home after a winter in warmer climates!  Starting April 23 Sunday mornings will have regular coverage.

Enjoy your life as Patch, Peach!!

Peach left on Sunday and is headed to a house full of fun!  The family he is joining has adopted cats from us in the past and also fosters kittens for us.  Now named Patch,  he will be joining two other cats, two huskies, twin seven year old boys, an 11 year old girl and mom and dad!  He is slowly being acclimated to their home by spending time in the little girl's room until he feels comfortable.

Adam was brought to PetSmart today.  He is just under two years old.  He is a bit shy at first but then turns into a lover!  He will tolerate being picked up to be moved but does not enjoy being held for any length of time. He may be afraid in a busy household so would require a nice slow introduction - especially if there are kids and dogs.  However a quieter home with other cats would be just fine.  He came into the shelter in April of last year as a stray.

Below are the dates this month that still need coverage:

Sunday, March 12, Adoption Table and Morning Cleaning
Wednesday, March 15, Adoption Table and Morning Cleaning
Sunday, March 26, Adoption Table and Morning Cleaning
