Catman2 Shelter

Not quite one month ago, Luke was dying from having indirectly ingested rodenticide (by eating part of a poisoned rodent). His lungs were filling with blood and hope was running out. Thanks to Dr. Black at Sylva Animal Hospital and quick action from Catman2, Luke recovered and was able to be adopted today. We will never stop fighting for the most vulnerable kitties in our community. Have a happy life, Luke! 💗😻

We asked #Kaleb for a picture of Kay (#MrsCatman) when we learned of her death over this past weekend. He has been sorting through a box of old photos trying to find a good one of Mrs. Sims and found this little gem. Here’s #DrHaroldSims with a tiny adorable #kitten many many years ago 😻

Porcupine: Story of the Day

A few said they'd be horses. Most said they'd be some sort of #cat. My friend said she'd like to come back as a porcupine. I don't like crowds, she said.

Porcupine: Story of the Day

A few said they'd be horses. Most said they'd be some sort of cat. My friend said she'd like to come back as a porcupine. I don't like crowds, she said.

There is a tiger in my room,' said Frances.
'Did he bite you?' said Father.
'No,' said Frances.
'Did he scratch you?' said Mother.
'No,' said Frances.
'Then he is a friendly tiger,' said Father. 'He will not hurt you. Go back to sleep.

Meet #Frankie. She is almost 10 years old and is a sweet chonk. She is scared and confused because after almost two years of love and devotion, her owner returned her for pottying in the house plants and didn’t even look back. Now Frankie has once again been displaced and has to go through yet another period of difficult adjustment. It is incredibly sad.

Frankie is a very sweet girl. She needs to be on a diet which is hard to do at the shelter where we are required to have food available at all times. She previously allowed nail caps to be put on her and has lived with multiple cats and dogs. Frankie doesn’t deserve to spend her life in and out of the shelter system. We are looking for a quiet home for her as soon as possible. If you would be willing to let this chonky princess call you hers, please tell her about yourself here: https://form.jotform.us/93037105972154

Remember, adopting a pet is a serious decision in which you take on the responsibility of caring for that pet for the rest of their life. Yes, there are unfortunately circumstances that leave that pet looking for a new home (death of/health of owner, etc), but some of the reasons for surrender we hear are just ridiculous and we’ve heard them all. Be committed to your companion pets, for they are devoted to you. You’re their everything and they do feel hurt and confused and scared when suddenly they’re no longer with you in what they knew to be their home.

The Catman2 family has experienced a profound loss. The sweetest cat lady who ever walked this earth Kay “Mrs. Catman” Sims passed away yesterday. She spent her working life helping children and families as a school social worker. Before she “retired” from shelter work years ago, she spent much of her post-retirement time taking care of the many rescued cats who came through the doors of Catman2. We all used to sit together after chores were done and listen to her tales of adventuring around the world. She loved to tell stories about living in Malaysia back when it was called Malaya.

Harold has vehemently requested *no flowers, please*. In lieu of flowers, he would like donations in Kay’s memory be made to the Catman2 Shelter (www.Catman2.org/donate) or The American Museum of the House Cat (https://www.wnccatmuseum.org), organizations he created with Kay at his side.

We appreciate your thoughts, prayers, and patience as we grieve the loss of a very precious woman.

The Master informs me that it is 'Valentine's Day', when messages of love are spread throughout the mortal world. I thought I'd join in and cross over into your human world with a message from me to my devoted followers, now nearing 40,000. Thank you for being with me on my adventures and for cheering Richard with your lovely responses to them. Love, The Topiary Cat.

How do you like this #TeaCupTeaParty by Mitchell Grafton

I grew up in Louisiana and every night my mom would fix a big pitcher of sweet tea that we poured over ice to drink with our southern country supper that almost always included cornbread. I really didn’t know that people actually drank hot tea for a very long time and I don’t think I tried it until I was in my late twenties. Of course I didn’t like it at first because nothing compares to a cold glass of sweet tea, but over time I acquired a taste for it and now I enjoy a cup late in the evening to calm my thoughts and soothe my nerves. I wouldn't be a bit surprised if the Mad Hatter was also from Louisiana, if so he would agree with me that iced sweet tea is still the best choice whenever cornbread is involved.

Our #MuseumCats love the #aliceinwonderland #teacup #teaparty by Grafton Pottery.
