A surplus of cats

The mild weather has meant more litters and fewer deaths among unwanted animals, cats especially, and some shelters say they're flooded with kittens.

This came in via e-mail from SCRAPS this morning:

Just last week alone SCRAPS received more than 100 cats and kittens. “We have been inundated with cats in the last week and need to do as many adoptions as we can over this weekend,” said Nancy Hill, SCRAPS Director. “Our shelter is so overcrowded with cats we have opened up our isolation area to handle the overflow.” SCRAPS will be offering a special break on adoption fees for cats on Thursday, Friday and Saturday this week. All cats and kittens will have their adoption fees reduced by $25 which will be taken off the usual cost of $62.70.

 

“We have some wonderful cats right now,” said Cindy Taskila, SCRAPS Kennel Maintenance Officer. “Many of the cats are already spayed or neutered and several of them are declawed. We have something for everyone from Persians to Calicos, from long hair to short hair, everyone should come on down to SCRAPS to see our wonderful animals.”

 

SCRAPS is open Thursday, Friday and Saturday from noon until 5:30 p.m. The adoption special ends on Saturday. SCRAPS is located at 2521 N. Flora Road, Spokane Valley. Call: (509) 477-2532.
