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?

Yoga with Cats

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?

Featured Cat of the Month

Monkey and Smokey

Sisters Monkey and Smokey are beautiful girls that have had a rough four months. They were surrendered to Good Mews in April when their dad could no longer keep them because his fiancé was allergic to cats. They lived in a loving home for 7 years and when brought to the shelter, their whole world turned upside down. They were terrified and had no idea what they did wrong and why they were sitting in a cage and not in their home. They hissed, swatted, refused to eat and wanted nothing to do with the staff and volunteers. It was heartbreaking to see how upset they were. But really, who could blame them? Everything they had ever known was gone.
