Quoting from the May 3 Print and Online Denver Westword:
"Each cat is a work of art, but if you're scratching your head, wondering what you'd do with a whimsical fiberglass cat by the name of Casino Cat, Sushi Chef or Meowscarade, Scott says they're lovely home decorations and, with a Clearcoat treatment, ideal for installing in the garden. But, she adds, "We were joking in the office that after you've acquired more than one, you'll have to start the attic rotation." All of the kitties but one will be auctioned off at a Painted Cats gala on July 28. (The last one, 'Claudia Monette,' by Jane McFadden Dorsey, will be the prize in a drawing; entry tickets are $10 each.)"

April 9, 2012 - quoting from the article 'Celebrate the return of the Cat Care Society's Tails of the Painted Cats' - "The Cat Care Society (CCS) of Lakewood is once again celebrating the Tails of the Painted Cats. This art auction fund raiser was a huge hit for the CCS during its inaugural year of 2011 and now this incredible event is back for more. Tails of the Painted Cats involved artists in the metro area designing, painted, tiling, drawing and anything else you can imagine onto fiberglass cat figures of various sizes which are then auctioned off to raise money for this cats' only animal shelter. There are 18 cat figures available and they will be unveiled to the public at a reception at the Lakewood Arts Council co-op gallery on Thursday, May 3. After the initial unveiling, the cats will then make their way to the Santa Fe Arts District First Friday event on June 1. Then on June 29 the cats can be viewed at Aar River Gallery in Westminster along with a wine tasting featuring Cat Care Society wines (see previous article about the Cat Care Society)."

April 23, 2012 - quoting from the article 'Cat traps for rent from the Cat Care Society' - "Cost to rent a trap is a $50 refundable deposit and trap rental is only 50 cents per day. The CCS has 20 traps available at any given time. The traps are humane and easy to use and CCS staff will show you how it works before you leave. Other items a cat trapper will need are a towel, newspaper and a can of tuna. More information is available on their website. To find cats available for adoption, visit their Facebook page. The Cat Care Society wants the public to know that rescuing a feral cat can be a time-consuming and frustrating experience with many outcomes to consider. For those willing to try, bringing a feral cat into a home can be a rewarding experience. Link to the posting
