  • We received a request to post this information:

    For the past few weeks a black tuxedo cat w/white paws (near as I can tell) has taken to our backyard. He's skittish, runs if you come near him (but lots of cats do that and then calm down once inside and safe). I put food out one evening for him and I got w/in about 20 feet from him and he ran, but about 15 min. later he slowly inched towards the food. Yesterday afternoon I saw him approach our deck and go under it; I went out onto the deck and he ran out from under it to the bushes at the back of our yard.

  • Blind KittyIt is with deep, deep sadness that we must report the passing of BC, the blind kitty rescued last week by a wonderful private rescuer. BC was quickly taken to her small shelter where he was given immediate love and care while he awaited a much needed visit to the vet. Once at the vet’s office it was determined that BC’s injuries were far more than his eyes.

  • We are always looking for new ways to try and help raise a few extra $$$$ for our never ending vet bills at the shelter. So, we are launching a new Pennies for Purrs campaign.

  • A local private rescuer from the Watsontown area is in need of foster care for pregnant mom’s and kittens. She will provide all vetting and take mom once kittens are weaned. If you can provide care for kittens until adopted that would be ideal. If not, but would like to help, please contact Eloise and discuss what you can go. You can reach Eloise at mkeithan@windstream.net or 570.538.5610. Eloise is a very reputable rescuer. She takes in many cats that local rescues are unable to provide shelter for.
