Events and Fundraisers This Month

posted in: Events, Fundraising | 0

It feels like we have a lot going on at the lounge beyond the regular business of visitors and adoptions! Chelcie was adopted today, Milan and Paloma go home tomorrow, and Mittens and Cami have an approved application! That is an excellent start to the month.

We’ve added an Events page to help guests find what’s happening more easily.

All month long we’re offering Valentines hearts again. For $5 you can get a 6″ paper heart to honor a cat you love. For $25 you can get two 6″ hearts plus a handmade heart-shaped pillow one of our supporters has made for us. All of the paper hearts will be displayed in our front windows for the month of February.

Information for Prospective Adopters

We hope this collection of articles and their resources will help you as you prepare to bring home a new cat or kitten!

Home Safety Check – this article is very thorough and this article has a nice checklist. If you have house plants consult this article from the ASPCA to be sure your plants are safe. Find a toxic one? Make a plan to re-home that plant.

Introducing a New Cat to a Current Cat – We love Jackson Galaxy’s advice and this article will walk you through it step by step! Absolutely worth the time to read through it and watch his videos as you get ready to bring home your new cat or kitten.

The Ride Home – most of our adopters have short rides home, thankfully, but any trip in the car can be unsettling and downright scary for some cats and kittens. This article has suggestions for minimizing the stress.

A Room of Their Own (to start) – even the most secure and extroverted cats can be scared when they get to their new home. Everything is different! This article talks about the benefits of starting them off in one room and how to set that up.

Food and Litter – we will let you know what kind of food and litter your new cat or kitten has been eating and using so that you can have that on hand to make the transition home easier for your new family member.

Suggested Products – this post has a collection of items that cats at the lounge have liked and that various volunteers have experience with.
