* All visitors must wear a face covering unless they are medically exempt.
* We believe it is important that prospective adopters spend time with the kitties in order to find the cat or kitten that is right for them.  To avoid the possibility of too many people showing up at once (especially when there are kittens) which would make social distancing difficult, we are now requiring appointments for prospective adopters. Appointments are 1 hour long and will give you the opportunity to interact with the cats and kittens to find the purrfect companion. Walk-ins are accepted if they do not conflict with a scheduled appointment. 
* Please call us at (775) 297-3419 or email to schedule your appointment. If we don't answer the phone, leave a message and we will return your call Wednesday thru Sunday.
* Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. 

Catmandu takes a different approach to caring for homeless cats. Instead of shutting them in individual steel cages, we provide them with a roomy, catified cage-free group-home environment that better suits their physical, mental and emotional needs. There is a giant catio and enclosed back yard where they can go to enjoy fresh air and the outdoors.


We take a more holistic and natural approach to caring for our cats, using homeopathy for much of their basic health care. We also use a vet when necessary. Dr. Sean Peck of All Creatures Mobile Vet does a fabulous job when one of our kitties needs testing, surgery or regular vet care. All Creatures supports Catmandu through discounted services; please support them with your business if you need a vet. 

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.

Catmandu accepts a limited number of kittens, as well as 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!
