Cat of the Month
Zoe is our cat of the month. She is 4 years old and was adopted 3 years ago in December as a feral cat and was very frightened at first. She is now a complete cuddle bug who waits by her best friend Robert's door for him to come home. She also makes sure she wakes him up every morning at 6 am by jumping on the bed and pushing him with her paws.

Fun Cat Facts
- Every cat's nose pad or nose leather is different--like a human fingerprint. Cats use their noses not only for smelling, but also for detecting temperature changes
- Cats' eyes are so big that if our eyes were proportionately as big they would be about 8 inches in diameter.
- Cats are usually considered color-blind
- Your cat's tail usually tells his mood:
- Carried high - proud and content
- Extended straight - he's stalking
- Thrusting side to side - he may be angry
- An adult cat can weigh as much as 20 pounds and as little as 5.
- A cat scratching post is used to satisfy the urge to stretch, clean claws, and marking territory, not for claw sharpening
- Cats can make over 100 vocal sounds, while dogs can make only 10.
