Catmandu will be open on an extremely limited basis until April 30; with adoptions and surrenders by appointment only. We have many nice felines here that would love to keep you company as we all practice social distancing to stay healthy. However, please make sure you are adopting for the long-term and will not want to bring the cat back once normal life resumes.

WE DO NOT HAVE KITTENS AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION AND WILL NOT BE ACCEPTING KITTEN SURRENDERS in 2020. We can help with information and supplies if you find kittens and need assistance with your efforts to care for them.


We have some bags of food that were donated but are not the brand we feed our cats. We normally share this surplus with people feeding feral cats and low income people needing help to feed their cats. If you need cat food to tide you over for the short-term, please let us know and we will give you some. At this point, there is plenty of dry food to share but no wet food other than Urinary care.

Although our fundraiser is postponed, the kitties' needs for food, litter, medical care and shelter go on. Our expenses stay the same no matter what.
If you are in a position to donate during this uncertain time, please do so.
Together we will get through this.

Catmandu currently has more than 100 residents on site. We accept adult and senior cats on a space available basis. When someone is adopted, it opens up a slot for a new cat to come in.

We have many wonderful cats needing forever homes and would love to introduce you to your new best friend.

Every cat that you adopt makes room for another cat needing shelter and security.

Senior 2 Senior

Long-term Foster Program


   The  Senior 2 Senior program places senior cats with senior citizens in a long-term foster situation.

  Having a furry friend is incredibly good for a senior – especially one who lives alone It helps them physically, mentally, and emotionally.

  But many seniors don’t adopt.  There are many good reasons why. They fear what would happen to their friend if they should get really sick or die. They worry about being able to afford vet care. It would be hard to  transport heavy food and cat litter. They don’t have the money to pay for food and litter every month.

  Senior 2 Senior (S2S) removes the barriers and brings these two groups together for their mutual benefit. 

  Since the cat remains the property of Catmandu, if something should happen to the person the cat would return to us. Through a combination of nutrition, homeopathy and vet care, we provide for the medical needs of the cat. If needed, we can deliver food and litter to the foster. For those on a small fixed income, donations and sponsorships will cover the cost of their cat supplies.

Everybody Wins!

Catmandu has postponed the Birthday Bash party scheduled for March 28th at the Carson Nugget until June 6th. People that have bought tickets can either exchange them for the Plan B event this summer or having their money refunded.

We have had great support from the community and local businesses and have a fabulous collection of raffle and auction items for the Plan B party this summer! 

Many thanks to our sponsors, volunteers, prize donors and ticket-buyers for all their support and the great work they have done so far. It is still going to be a fun and fabulous party …….just at a later date.

About Catmandu

Catmandu takes a different approach to caring for homeless cats. Instead of shutting them in individual steel cages, we provide them with a catified cage-free group-home environment that better suits their physical, mental and emotional needs.

Catmandu is community supported. We receive no government funding; relying on donations, the Friends of Catmandu and community support to keep the doors open. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization; donations are tax deductible.
