Denver's Cat Care Society: News In Review

Quoting from the May 14th article by Clarke Reader:

"The Lakewood Arts Council Co-op Gallery is being overrun by painted and decorated cats as part of the Cat Care Society’s “Tails of the Painted Cats” fundraising event.

Eighteen cat statues — some standing, others sitting, but all uniquely created and about three feet long or tall — are currently making the gallery, located at 85 S. Union Blvd., home as the first stop on a two-month bidding tour of the metro area.

'This is our second year doing this, and we’re planning on doing it again next year,' said the Cat Care Society’s director of development, Suellen Scott. After next year’s event, the program will become an every-other-year occurrence, switching off with the Denver Hospice Mask Project."

Many thanks to the Fur Everywhere Blog for sharing the news about Cat Care Society's 'Spring The Seniors' promotion (and it's still spring... until June 20!). Quoting the posting:

"I wanted to inform all of you about an event that's taking place at one of my very favorite cat shelters this Spring. The event, called Spring the Seniors, allows you to name your adoption fee on any senior cat (10 years or older) at Cat Care Society until June 20.

I've been to Cat Care Society many, many times over the past several years. I really enjoy visiting the kitties, and most of the staff even knows me by name. :) I admire the way in which the shelter is run because unlike many other shelters, Cat Care Society rarely euthanizes cats."

May is Foster Cat Month and CCS's Abbi Collins was interviewed by Stacey Brecher for IAMS 'The Daily Cat' blog. Quoting from the posting:
"According to Abbi Collins, adoptions manager of the Cat Care Society in Lakewood, Colo., there are different types of cats that need fostering. Kittens that are too young to adopt out, feral kittens that need socializing, and injured cats that need time to heal may need to spend time in a foster home, says Collins. Depending on the individual cat’s needs, fostering can range from two to 10 weeks."
