Kitten Shower!

Join the littlest Good Mews residents on Saturday, August 27, 10 a.m. - 4 p.m., for a fun kitten shower featuring a one-day adoption special of $20 for kittens nine months and younger. The adoption fee, normally $75, includes spay/neuter, vaccinations and microchip. The kitten shower will celebrate all of the Good Mews babies with refreshments, prizes, face-painting, and games. Bring shelter donations to earn raffle tickets to enter for a chance to win some great prizes. The more you bring, the better your chances to win! Shelter needs: scoopable clumping litter, Fancy Feast “classic-style” seafood variety packs, paper towels, toilet paper, dishwashing liquid, tall kitchen trash bags, gift cards for pet stores, Target or Walmart. The babies look forward to greeting you!

Yoga with Cats

Note: September 11th and 13th yoga sessions are full. Check back for new sessions to be added.

New classes added! Are you ready for some downward-facing cat? What could be better than relaxing, meditating and striking a yoga pose amidst the Good Mews feline residents? Join a certified yoga instructor for a one-hour, beginner-level “Yoga with Cats” class on Sunday, September 11 at 11:30 a.m., or Tuesday, September 13, at 7:00 p.m. in the Good Mews cat shelter. Expect a few giggles along the way as the cats roam freely among class participants and may even curl up for a nap on a yoga mat. Classes are limited to 15 students and will take place in the main cat room at Good Mews. Your $20 class fee will go directly to the care of the cats and kittens in our shelter. Grab your yoga mat and we hope to see you there! Meowmaste! Register here.

Reading to Cats

Good Mews is pleased to offer fall reading sessions for students in grades 1—8. Does your child love to read, need extra reading practice, or would he/she like to spend time helping socialize shelter cats by reading out loud to them? The program is designed to help children sharpen their reading skills and to provide enrichment for the cats and kittens. The interaction also teaches kids the importance of empathy, animal welfare, and community service. Each 90-minute reading session can accommodate up to 10 students, and one adult must accompany up to two students. Sessions are planned for:

Monday, September 12; 1:00 – 2:30 p.m.
Wednesday, September 14; 1:00 – 2:30 p.m.
Sunday, September 18; 11:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
Monday, September 26; 1:00 – 2:30 p.m.
Wednesday, September 28; 1:00 – 2:30 p.m.

Be a Kitty Keeper

Good Mews has a unique program called Kitty Keeper where you can sponsor a shelter cat. For as little as $20 per month, you’ll help care for a cat with special challenges that make him or her a bit harder to place in a loving home. In return, your sponsored cat will send you quarterly letters with photos and updates about what’s happening at Good Mews. What better pen pal?

Learn more about some of the Kitty Keeper cats in this adorable video.

You can choose which cat in the program you would like to sponsor, or you can allow our volunteers to choose a kitty for you.  Click here to sign up for the program!
