Catmandu, an essential business, is open on an extremely limited basis with adoptions and surrenders by appointment only. 


We have several very nice cats and seniors that would love to keep you company as COVID restrictions continue. 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 CURRENTLY HAVE KITTENS AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION AND WILL NOT BE ACCEPTING KITTEN SURRENDERS in 2020.  We have a few newborns in foster care that snuck in with mom, but they will not be ready for new homes for a couple of months.


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 indefinitely, 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 85 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 indefinitely postponed the Birthday Bash party. Originally scheduled for March 28th at the Carson Nugget, it was then postponed until June 6th. 

Unfortunately, it now seems that date won't work either. Restrictions on large gatherings are still in place and it appears that will continue for quite some time. 

We are contacting everyone that sponsored or bought tickets and offering them their money back. 

Many thanks to our sponsors, volunteers, prize donors and ticket-buyers for all their support and the great work they did on this event.

We are sad it isn't going to happen, but there's not much we can do about it. Hopefully we will still be able to have a party of some sort at some point in the future.

Please feel free to contact Catmandu regarding your tickets or any questions you may have.
