December tends to be a busy month for The Cat Cafe. We get a lot of visitors coming for the Holiday Bowl as well as visitors who want to make San Diego a part of their holiday season plans. And of course, San Diego residents make the trip in to relax with furry friends. Purr therapy is a great way to reduce the stress of the holiday season!
Some of our visitors decided to give one of the cats they met the best present they could ask for — a forever home. The Cat Cafe sent five cats home in December. We’ll miss Manuel, Gracie, Roxy, Sadie, and Gidget. But we’re glad they’ve found good homes. And we’re happy all of the follow up calls were positive.
In addition to sending five cats home in December, The Cat Cafe raised $287 for The Rescue House. We’re glad we were able to raise this money to help them continue to add to the more than 13,000 cats they’ve saved since they started operating in 1999.
When cats go home, new cats arrive. And we’re glad to have welcomed in Jayden, Justine, and Bertie. Interestingly enough, all of these cats arrived during our cats on mats sessions.
Jayden and Justine are brother and sister. While they’re not considered a bonded pair, we’d like to send them home together. When Jayden went to the vet for a check up, Justine was looking for her brother all day. And here’s how you know they’re brother and sister. She greeted him when he came back, and when he tried to show affection to her, she gave him a swat.
These two one year old cats were found along with their siblings in a shed by a kind person. One of the vets The Rescue House learned about these cats. Thanks to adopters like the five who took home cats in December, The Rescue House had space to bring them in.
Bertie is also a relatively young cat, at about eight months. He’s an inquisitive and friendly cat. Soon after his arrival at The Cat Cafe, he was sniffing the other cats and rubbing noses with them, so it’s clear he likes other cats. Bertie also likes people, and quickly started asking for pets and chin scratches.
Come on in to meet the three latest arrivals here at The Cat Cafe and say hi to some old friends.
