Featured Cat of the Month
Chelsey is a gorgeous two-year-old girl with a luxurious dilute calico coat. She loves to be petted, scratched and brushed; she even tolerates nail trims. She looks forward to her play bonding sessions with her foster mom and goes nuts over feather wands and the cat dancer toy. Chelsey’s favorite little toy is her fuzzy Lambie Pie. She loves batting that thing around.
Over a year ago, Chelsey was found outside and taken to a vet for a microchip scan. She did have a microchip but sadly, the owners did not want her back and admitted to intentionally putting her outside. The angels who found her got her vetted and kept her indoors and safe. In January, they reached out to us in hopes that we could further her socialization and find her a forever home. Her dedicated foster mom followed every socialization trip and trick in the book. She gave Chelsey a safe space right in the middle of the action on the main floor of her home. The other fosters came to her kitty condo and befriended her. The resident cats and dogs came calling and befriended her, too. She now accepts people as her friends, too. Chelsey spend her day wandering around her foster home, splitting her time between relaxing on the couch with the dogs, sunning herself with the cats, and scratching the daylights out of the tall cat tree. She has really blossomed!
Chelsey will likely never be a social, outgoing cat who sits on your lap or answers the door when visitors come over. She likes to be petted and scratched, allows brushing and even nail trims, but is very independent. Each of the resident and foster cats have joined her on her couch perch (we think one of the boys has a crush on her) and she accepts them. Even two cat friendly dogs have napped with her and she is unfazed.
We think Chelsea would be happiest in a quiet home where she is loved and cared for and allowed just be herself on her own terms. She would probably love being part of a household with other cats and cat-savvy dogs.

THE MOVEMENT TO BURY PETS ALONGSIDE PEOPLE
The desire to be buried with a pet is nothing new. Eric Greene, a cultural anthropologist and the founder of the Green Pet-Burial Society, first realized that humans could be buried alongside their animal companions when he learned about a Natufian burial site from 10,000 BCE in what is now northern Israel. “In it lay the skeleton of a woman on her side and with a puppy’s skeleton by her head, her hand gracefully resting atop his head,” Greene remembers.
