Eddie came to us as a shabby foster cat. He had a gum infection that made it painful for him to groom, and because of his FIV, and the severity of his condition, it was going to take a while to get him back into good health. Over the next several months Cat Town helped us cycle through medication, vet visits, and teeth removals until Eddie was out of pain. It took removing all but his last two teeth before he showed improvement, but after months of medical care and, I'd like to think, our boundless love for Eddie, he finally stabilized.
This Thanksgiving holiday, we’re especially grateful for our incredible group of volunteers, who day in and day out help keep Cat Town running. This month w’re shining the spotlight on Shelley G., a local artist and one of our regular volunteers who helps out in the Adoption Center Studios, socializing our hardest-to-place cat population. When she’s not at Cat Town, she enjoys spending time in her art studio with her two rambunctious cats, Lenny and Squiggy.
At the end of October, we’re happy to report that we helped nine black and tuxedo cats find homes during Black Cat Awareness month. That, on top of a number of other adoptions, makes for another successful month at Cat Town — what better way to celebrate our fourth anniversary of our Adoption Center?!
It’s no secret that Cat Town has the greatest volunteers around. Rachael P. is an integral part of our team, helping with things like our Case Management Program and socializing members of our Forgotten Kitten Project. She even serves as an unofficial Cat Town ambassador, spreading the word about the organization to her Lyft and Uber passengers.
