The Kittens Are Here! The Kittens Are Here

reg spa kittnes0

By Joan DiPiero At the SPA, we’ve suddenly experienced a lot of leaping, cavorting, and frivolity, and that’s just from our volunteers, celebrating the annual arrival of spring kitten season. Who could resist the joy of spending time with these delightful little furry beings of all colors and personalities? Right now, they are getting to [...]

Why Are They Still Here?


By Helen Dickson That’s the question I ask myself every time I’m at the SPA and wonder why our older cats have not been adopted. Is it because they are black or that they are no longer cute adorable kittens (who incidentally need to be entertained for hours on end)? What they offer are proven [...]

Girls’ Club

reg spa4

By Joan DiPiero Calico and tortoise-shell cats, not a breed but a color type, are always female (with very few exceptions). Right now, at the SPA, we have perfect examples of all four types—calico, tortoise, and dilute versions of each. Madeline, a black, orange, and white calico sweetheart, is a mellow 2-year-old mama who prefers [...]


REG SPA Miss Nube

By Harry Burrus When I look at Nube, I am propelled into the Klondike—Yukon Territory. I hear the mushers call out their commands: “Gee!” “Haw!” “On By.” But wait, I am in the high desert plateau of the Bajío. No snow. No sleds. I do hear other dog walkers saying, “Leave it!” Déjalo! Nube, however, [...]

Shrinking Violets

REG SPA Scylla

By Joan DiPiero Most of our cat adopters decide on “The One” pretty quickly, usually choosing an outgoing cat who speaks “take me, take me” by either jumping on a lap, rubbing against a leg, showing a tummy for petting, or other dramatic moves designed to please. While we are thrilled by these adoptions, we [...]
