The Grand Opening of Sheltering Hands new Headquarters and Surgical Center is this Saturday, September 26th from 9-4. Volunteers will introduce visitors and friends to our surgical center, adoption area and gift shop. This will be your chance to see the steps involved in our Community Cats program as you move from the receiving area to each stage of the procedure. In Coco’s House we will have a few adorable adoptable cats available, as well as a variety of gift items in our new gift shop. Interested in our Seniors for Seniors program, think you would like to volunteer, have questions about our Community Cats Program? We have information about all these programs and volunteers eager to answer any questions.  Light refreshments will be served.

We look forward to meeting with you.

  1. A cat’s nutritional retnerimeuqs are much different than those of a dog. For example, cats require higher levels of protein than dogs. Cats must have the amino acid called taurine’ in their diet; dogs can actually make their own taurine. A cat eating food deficient in taurine can develop severe heart disease and other health problems. Almost all cat foods now contain added taurine.Cats require a different form of Vitamin A than dogs do. Dogs can use beta-carotene as a source of Vitamin A; cats cannot. Cats can not manufacture the fatty acid called arachidonic acid’ and must have it supplemented in their diet; it is not essential for dogs to have this fatty acid in their food.So, you see, if a cat is allowed to eat a significant amount of dog food, the cat would be eating a diet deficient in many of the cat’s required nutrients. For your cat’s health, be sure she is eating quality cat food.
