Victoria was brought to our clinic to be spayed as a community cat. The caretaker didn't have funds to take her to a Vet for her nose and could only afford her spay surgery.
Our clinic staff wanted to help her so they asked if we could keep her! The caretaker let us have her and our Veterinarian diagnosed her to have a fungal infection in her nose. She was also very skinny, had trouble breathing, and had an upper respiratory infection and ringworm. The cards were stacked against this girl.
But, she is sweet and we all fell in love with her instantly!
During her recovery, a nice couple saw her on social media and fell in love with her too. She wasn't completely healed yet, so they agreed to be her medical fosters. After several months with them and 9 months of total healing, her foster parents officially adopted her this past weekend! We couldn't be happier for both of them!
Brushing your cat is so important! It helps remove loose, dead hair that otherwise would have two fates - floating around your house or eventually as the form of a hairball on your carpet. You know you'll step on that hairball in the middle of the night, so why not do your half asleep self a favor and work to prevent it?
In addition to preventing your own discomfort, it really helps your cat! It stimulates blood circulation, removes any dirt, and helps you spot any of those pesky fleas.
Brushing is also a great way to bond with your cat. Most cats really enjoy brushing and it gives you some intimate one-on-one time. Throw in some treats for good measure!
2-3 times per week is great for short hair, daily for long hair! If you have a long hair cat that mats frequently, you might need some other tools in your arsenal!
The two brushes in this video are shown below!
Every week at 7pm CST Katie and Steven go live on our Tik Tok and Facebook platforms. They answer questions, share cat facts and show you all the cats. It's a great time!
Busy at that time? Never fear! You can watch at your leisure on our YouTube channel!
Such a great adoption week! The kittens in foster care are slowly getting big enough for adoption and we are still having a bunch of teen and adult adoptions as well!

Kitten season certainly bombarded us last week! In a matter of days we took in 46 cats. Many of them are sick, scared and/or on a special diet. Don't forget the tiny feral kittens that tried so hard to be fierce but that melted away quickly! Of course, even if they look icky from being sick, they are SUPER cute and we're so lucky that we could help them. As you can imagine, we are going through our stock of baby food quickly so any donations are very much appreciated! You can purchase food directly through our Amazon Wish List - we specifically need Science Diet and Baby Cat canned right now !
You can also donate on our Website or PayPal We also have Cash App ($thecatterycc) or Venmo (@thecatterycc). Check out the video and pics below!
We just love this toy. When we clean the cat rooms, we pick up everything off the floor so we can sweep and swiffer, including toys. Cats will actually go through the piles of toys and beds to get to this toy and play with it. If it's upside down on the floor, they play with it. If it's sideways on the floor, they play with it! It keeps them entertained for hours!
