A day in the life of #Shannon, one of Catman2’s #ShelterKitties...

Shannon is ridiculous. Here is a page out of Shannie’s daily planner:
8:30am - Stand with paws on the glass door and beg Uncle Manny for treats.
8:45am - Sit in front of the food bowl, graze, and wait for it to be filled.
9:15am - Crawl into one of the cat houses for a nap.
10:45am - Wake up and go find a cardboard scratching disc. Sit on it and stare blankly at nothing.
11:00am - Time to graze again.
11:15am - Pre-afternoon nap.
12:30pm - Spread out like a warm breakfast and shamelessly groom self.
2:00pm - Find cardboard scratching disc. Sit on it and do absolutely nothing.
2:30pm - Afternoon nap.
3:45pm - Get weirdly frisky and bound across the lobby a few times.
3:50pm - Well that was enough of that. Nap time.
5:00pm - Wake up and graze.

If her activities fit your lifestyle, Shannon may be the one for you! She’s been with us since Christmas 2017. She’s not the brightest cat but hey, we are talking about finding her a loving home - she doesn’t have to go to college!

She is 3 years old and ready to change her schedule only by location - she can do all this at your house! Call to make an appointment to meet this lazy gal - 828-293-0892.

Catman2 Shelter

Here’s the current adoptable kitties in our kitten room. We have many who are waiting to be spayed/neutered and vetted before they can join the party! You can help us find their human soul mate by sharing this post. If you’re interested in adopting, please give us a call at 828-293-0892 to schedule a time to come meet these cuties. All of our cats are spayed/neutered, negative for feline leukemia, vaccinated with age appropriate core vaccines, treated for parasites, micro-chipped, and certified pre-loved! Our adoption fee is $60 and we are committed to matching the right cat with the right human. If you’re not happy or the cat’s not happy, then we aren’t happy! Catman2 is a unique shelter with a full return policy, as we are committed to our cats for life and always want them to be safe and loved. www.catman2.org

What lessons has your cat taught you?

"I learned a valuable lesson from my cat recently.

There are so many lessons we can learn from animals, from how to be kind to how to know when a storm is coming.

They have good instincts about people. If your dog or cat doesn’t like a person, pay attention.

Of course, they have way better vision and hearing than we do. (Although, I would appreciate it if mine didn’t hear weird noises in the house at 3 a.m.)

They know the warmest spot in the house.

They know how to get what they want by looking cute."

Catman2 Shelter

We had a special moment here at Catman2 yesterday when our sweet but petrified Bryce allowed a patient cat whispering kiddo to pick him up and hold him. Thank you, Valentina for being so gentle and loving with our scaredy kitten! It warms my heart that she was willing to put her own excitement about being around so many kitties to the side so that she could earn Bryce’s trust.

We need more volunteers who can give cats like Bryce (who came from a feral colony) some gentle socialization and comfort. He felt so safe with Valentina and I know in my heart that he will be a wonderful companion to someone who is willing to give him a chance. Bryce would be best suited for a quiet home that already has at least one cat. Please call if you’d like to meet him! 828-293-0892
