TO THE RESCUE! Cats like to find quiet places to have their babies – and their persistence in finding obscure places to give birth can surprise even the most experienced foster caregivers.
Our shelter veterinarian, Dr. Emily Bewley, took home a very pregnant cat so she could give birth in a home rather than the shelter. Mother Mayhem – as she’s since been named – proceeded to escape from her enclosure and crawled into the ceiling of the unfinished basement to have her kittens.
Are you looking for the purrfect feline companion? Now is a great time to adopt!

The Kentucky Humane Society (KHS) is reminding people to check their car hoods for outside cats seeking warmth this winter, after an injured kitten was surrendered to the nonprofit animal shelter this week.
“In cold weather, outside cats sometimes crawl into car hoods seeking the warmth of a recently turned off engine. A bang on your car hood or a beep of your horn before starting the engine can give cats a chance to escape or make their presence known and can help save lives this winter,” said Megan Decker, KHS Media Manager.

Saturday, August 8, is International Cat Day. It’s also the second anniversary of the opening of Purrfect Day Café in Louisville, one of the most successful cat café’s in the country. And earlier this week, Purrfect Day Café celebrated their 3,000th cat adoption.
In recognition of these milestones, Purrfect Day Café is inviting previous adopters to stop by the café this weekend for a social distancing celebration by having a drink on the café’s outdoor “catio” and sharing photos and stories on social media of the “furrever friends” they adopted at the café. There will be a sidewalk sale of café merchandise. The café is located at 1741 Bardstown Road in the Highlands.
