Cat of the Week: Mindy
Mindy is a green eyed princess, looking to be the queen of your castle! She likes to do things on her own terms, but is a very happy girl that loves to be the center of attention, especially from humans. Some of her favorite things to do with her people are brushing and head pets, Occasionally she will kick a cat nip toy around or swing at a wand, but she mostly basks in all her glory. When you look in the other direction, you might catch her rubbing her face against doorways, as she is always looking for a little scratch! Open up your home to Mindy and you will surely not be missing the last piece to your kingdom any longer. If you are interested, please fill out an adoption application here.

Stories from Andy's Alumni Roscoe!
Roscoe's new family has shared with us that he is loving his new home !
"He sleeps on the bed all night, curled up close to me and actually on a pillow sometimes.
One of the pictures I am sending is taken from outside, because Roscoe is usually sitting in the window when I come home. He has a great view of the neighborhood and all the squirrels and birds and an occasional fox, all from the safety of being behind glass."

Q: Dear Andy, I love my cat, but I also love my new couch! How can I keep my kitty from scratching the furniture?
A: There are lots of things you can do to discourage scratching of furniture. You may need to try a few, because every cat responds a little bit differently! Try some of these ideas from Jackson Galaxy, and watch the video below!
1. Make sure you have scratching posts! Yes POSTS! Cats can scratch vertically, horizontally, or on an angle. Your cat may like your couch because it is providing one of these types of scratching.
2. Discourage scratching on the furniture by tightly covering the culprit spots with a sheet, foil, tape, etc. Eventually, when presented with other more fun options, your kitty will forget about their favorite spot.
3. Use a natural citrus spray on your furniture. Cats have an aversion to citrus.
4. Keep your cats nails trimmed. Cats nails should be cut about every 2-3 weeks.
