Closed Saturday Sept 30 and Sunday Oct 1 for Floors!
If you have been following the Catmandu makeover saga, you know we have some significant issues with our new epoxy floors. In addition to some bubbles, none of them got enough top coat and are impossible to mop. One whole room needs to be completely redone. The contractor has promised to do everything necessary to make them right. He notified me yesterday that they are coming this weekend to do all the work. It will take 2 full days of work for them.
Consequently, Catmandu will be CLOSED to the public and most volunteers on Saturday Sept 30th and Sunday Oct 1st.
It's terrible timing, coming the week after our big re-opening but it's when they can do the work and we have to get these floors fixed!!
Catmandu will resume normal business hours the following week, starting Friday October 6th. We apologize for any inconvenience.
Catmandu is a very special cage-free facility, designed to provide the best possible environment for the 80 or so cats in our care. It truly is a kitty paradise.
Catmandu is basically divided into 2 sections, the sanctuary and the adoption center.
SANCTUARY -The sanctuary cats have a huge area that includes a giant covered catio, barn and fenced back yard. It is filled with cat trees, wall drawers, shelves, beds, a climbing tree and climbing wall. They are free to go where they want. The majority of sanctuary cats are either older (8 and up), have health issues, are shy with people they do not know, or have special requirements for their furever home. While many of our sanctuary residents are wonderful cats that can become fabulous companions and housecats, they require more time and patient work to gain their trust and help them adjust to a new environment. Consequently, they are seldom adopted and will be at Catmandu for years or life. That's okay. We love and care for them just the same, no matter what their degree of friendliness or sociability. We are at maximum capacity, with 60 residents in the sanctuary.
ADOPTABLE CATS - are short-timers and usually find a new home within a couple of months. We usually have several truly wonderful cats that would adjust quickly to a new home and make a great companion for you. We hope you will come and meet them when you are looking to add a new feline friend to your home.
Catmandu is adoption driven. We are always at maximum capacity and cannot take in a new cat until someone is adopted and their spot becomes available.
Catmandu is community supported. We receive no government funding; relying on donations and community support to keep the doors open. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization; donations are tax-deductible. Every little bit helps!!
We accept a limited number of 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.
We need your help to stay open! Please visit our donation page
Senior 2 Senior Long-term Foster Program
The Senior 2 Senior program places senior cats (age 10+) with senior citizens in a long-term foster situation. The cat remains with the person for the rest of their life. However, if something should happen to the person the cat returns to us. We also help with medical care through a combination of nutrition, homeopathy and vet care when needed. Everybody Wins!
