World Cat Day

August 8 is World Cat Day! 

Here are some great ways to celebrate with your cat:

  • Spoil your cat! Get your feline friend a new toy, a new bed, or a new scratching post. 
  • While your cat might not understand it’s for their own good you could also schedule a wellness vet visit for your cat. Catching problems early can help make for the best possible outcome. Keeping their vaccinations up to date is also important.
  • Spend some extra time with your cat. Maybe they love to be brushed. Maybe they’d love some extra playtime. Take a little extra time to show your cat how much you love them.

If you don’t have a cat, and still want to show your love for felines:

  • If you’d like to change that: adopt! You can find our pets up for adoption here.
  • Donate
    • Donations can be made online on our website here
    • FREE ways to donate at no additional cost to you
      • Give us your Econo Foods receipts. We get 1% of the money from all receipts we turn in. It adds up fast!
      • Support CCHS on AmazonSmile. More information on how here.
  • Volunteer
    • Visit the shelter and spend some time in the cat room. Most of our cats love the extra attention.
    • From home:
      • Make durable cat toys
      • Make scratching posts
    • Contact the shelter for other volunteering opportunities

Spread the word – help educate people on important pet information. Be sure to do your research. 

  • The importance of spaying and neutering your pets. It helps with overpopulation and can have health benefits for your pet.
  • The benefits of keeping cats indoors – we have a great blog post on that here.
  • Adopting is a great option when looking for a pet. 
  • Share cats (and dogs) up for adoption
  • The problems with declawing cats. Did you know it’s actually an amputation?
  • Microchipping can help get cats (and dogs) back home if they are lost. We also have a blog post on that here.
