Glitter is a wonderful and social 2 year old kitty, who needs some special tender loving care.  Glitter came to us from a rescue in Freemont County Colorado.  She had been found wandering around a creek bed.  She was emaciated, dehydrated, constipated, and showed signs of physical abuse.  Her abdomen was so full of fecal matter that her internal organs were crushed, and the doctors had to go in and surgically clean out her colon.  One of the side effects was that her nerves in her abdomen were damaged, and she couldn’t defecate or urinate on her one.  With medication she has recovered enough that she can defecate now, but she still needs to have her bladder manually expressed two to three times a day. There is hope that she will continue to improve, and that the nerve damage can reverse itself in time.  Glitter also had to have part of her tail amputated.  It appears that her tail was wrapped in two places, possibly by rubber bands, causing circulation to be cut off, leaving the end of her tail dead.  We surgically removed the non-functional section of tail, and now Glitter has a cute little bobtail.  Glitter will always need to stay on medication to prevent constipation, as well as a prescription diet, and may never regain full nerve function.  She will need a human who is comfortable monitoring her stools, and who can manually express her bladder.  But she is sweet, social, and outgoing.  Glitter loves everyone, and wants to make friends with the world!  Come in and meet Glitter today, she’s an amazing girl!

About Cat Care Society

About Our Shelter...

Cat Care Society, a nonprofit organization, was founded in 1981 to improve the quality of life for homeless, injured, and abused cats in the Denver metropolitan area.

The Society's purposes are:

To sponsor educational programs that promote responsible pet ownership, humane treatment of all animals, and to reduce pet overpopulation.

To shelter cats in a healthy, cage-free environment and to provide compatible and responsible adoptions.

To provide community outreach programs that improve the quality of life for cats and people.

To be a friend to all cats.

The shelter provides a temporary refuge for up to 50 cats until an appropriate and permanent home can be found for each. Veterinary care, premium diet, and human interaction are lovingly provided.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Cat Care Society is located at 5787 W. 6th Avenue in Lakewood, Colorado. We are on the frontage road north of 6th Avenue, between Sheridan Avenue and Wadsworth Boulevard. It is easiest to access the frontage road via Sheridan Avenue.

CCS is open Tuesday through Friday Noon - 5:30, Saturday 11 - 4:30 and Sunday Noon - 3:00. The shelter is closed on Monday.

Our Adoption Process...

If you are looking to adopt a cat, we encourage you to visit our shelter. There are no scheduled appointments at CCS – simply drop by during the shelter’s open hours.

When you visit the shelter seeking to adopt, a Shelter Assistant will greet you. They will ask you to fill out a “Cat Finder Assistance” form that gives an idea of the type of cat you are seeking. If you have children, we require they visit the shelter with you. Also, renters should come prepared with a copy of their lease indicating cats are allowed, or their landlord’s phone number so we can verify pet allowances.

Once you have found a cat that suits you – which may take more than one visit – a Shelter Assistant will have you fill out an adoption application. You will then go through the adoption process to learn more about the specific cat you have chosen and to review the adoption contract. Adoption paperwork usually takes about 30-45 minutes to complete and review.

Cats available for adoption at CCS have tested negative for feline leukemia and feline AIDS (FIV). They have undergone a physical examination upon entry into the shelter, and received distemper and upper respiratory vaccinations. All adoptable cats and kittens have been spayed or neutered. All cats and kittens leave the shelter with a 15-day health care assistance plan, a collar and ID tag, and an implanted microchip used to help return lost pets to their homes. We also provide a cardboard carrier to take the cat or kitten home.
