Volunteer of the Month: Shanti P.

Volunteer of the Month: Shanti P.

Cat Town has an incredible team of dedicated volunteers, many of whom go above and beyond just a weekly shift. One such volunteer is Shanti P., who volunteers in our adoption center, as well as helps with the Forgotten Kitten Project and the recently launched case manager program, which offers advice and support to recent adopters of cats who may need a little more time to adjust to a new home. Shanti has also fostered several cats for Cat Town, and as a registered veterinary technician she’s been able to foster difficult medical cases.

I talked with Shanti about her recent Cat Town foster fail with Huey and why special needs cats like him make for extra special companions.

Adopting Ogden Changed My Life

Adopting Ogden Changed My Life

I never thought there could be anything sweet about lying in a dark room disabled by the symptoms of my chronic illness, but then we adopted Ogden.

The day my husband and I brought Ogden home, he was a shy and skittish cat who hid under a desk and hissed at us whenever we came too close. He’d been found on the street by a Trap-Neuter-Return program for feral cats, so he was used to surviving on his own. We were going to have to earn his trust.

KITTEN WIRE: MELLOW MILTON NOW UP FOR ADOPTION

KITTEN WIRE: MELLOW MILTON NOW UP FOR ADOPTION

OAKLAND — We recently told you about a shy cat named Milton, a member of our Forgotten Kitten Project. Today, we're happy to report this mini-panther with a developing penchant for pets is available for adoption. 

To learn more about Milton's journey, we checked in with his foster mom, Cammane W., who took him in four months ago when he developed a bad cold, prompting his move out of the main adoption center.
