Cat of the Month
Scooter is our cat of the month. He was fostered from Kitty City Cat Rescue in Macon, Ga. in 2012 along with his mother. Both were very sick but thankfully survived however he was left with some impairment in vision in his right eye. He was four weeks old at the time but it never has slowed him down. Everyone who meets him falls in love.

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.
