CAT-ch Spring Fever!

Shadow

Ah, at last, spring is starting to peek around the corner, and with it, we are starting to hear the pitter-patter of little kitten feet.

Since all those kitten feet will need someplace to land, we are hoping you will CAT-ch Spring Fever and welcome home one of our many WONDERFUL adult cats, on a DONATION OPTIONAL basis!

That’s right, once you have submitted an application from http://forgetmenotshelter.org/Application and have been approved, you can bring home any of the currently listed adult cats for… however much you wish to donate (even nothing at all)!

We have all different cats – big cats, little cats, fluffy cats, sleek cats, pushy cats, shy cats, and every one of them is the PERFECT cat – for someone.

Check out all the available kitties and apply now for your new best friend!

Bringing Home Your New Cat

Happy at home

Welcome home

One key to making successful shelter cat placements is managing the expectations of their new people. Here is some information, gleaned from various websites and the personal experiences of our adopters and volunteers, which we like to share with each cat adopter before the day they bring their new family member home.

Long-time shelter pets need your help

Spring is here, when our thoughts turn to… KITTENS!

Unfortunately, this year we have many juvenile and adult cats who have not yet found their forever homes.

Along with these beautiful cats, we have one amazing dog who just can’t seem to get noticed… he’s seen dozens of other dogs come in to the shelter, and then leave in two weeks, or a month, or two months, with their new people. Teague continues to wait, but he is growing depressed (see "The Big Black Dog Dilemma, featuring Teague").

We know many of you have already filled that empty spot in your family with a Forget Me Not pet, or perhaps you have used Forget Me Not to help a pet find a new home.

We’re not asking you to adopt one of these pets (though it would be lovely if you did).
