Columbus Cat Crisis

by Maureen McCabe on June 8, 2007

Caesar the catColumbus has too many cats according to the Capital Area Humane Society. CAHS is overflowing with felines at their shelter. It’s kitten season.

Capital Area Humane Society has a kitten shower this weekend. Saturday noon to three o’clock. There’s a pdf with more details on the Capital Area Humane Society website. I am too impatient to wait for it to open. (I hate .pdf files… they are great for sending a contract, emailing an addendum but when I am reading the web I hate ‘em.. because they open slowly but I digress.)

Kitten shower? I’ve heard of dog baths…the Central Ohio group that does dog baths is starting their season shortly. I read about it online. Someplace.

Kitten’s shower? I have bathed a cat a time or two. Maybe it’s shower as in a baby shower? Open the .pdf if you have the patience.

Last night on Channel 10 News they talked about the Columbus cat population explosion, one unaltered cat (unspayed?) In seven years that cat will be responsible for the reproduction of over 400,000 furry feline offspring.

The kitty at the top is Caesar, a Capital Area Humane Society alumnus. Alumnus? singular… my dog is a CAHS adoptee too, together they are CAHS alumni?

We searched Cozy Cat Cottage in Powell, Cat Welfare in Clintonville; some special events done by some of the animal rescue groups but met Caesar at the Capital Area Humane Society and fell in love. He was an older kitten, it was not kitten season.

Visit the Columbus K9 page on my website for Central Ohio animal rescue groups and shelters. I was a cat person… then in 1990 or 1991 I was transformed into a dog person but since meeting Caesar I am torn… but the page on my website is still Columbus K9… it’s mostly dogs but a couple of the rescue groups do both. CAHS shelters cats, dogs, rabbits, pocket pets (?) and more.

Kitty, Kitty, Kitty

I recommend Cozy Cat Cottage or Cat Welfare in Clintonville, of course or there is always the Capital Area Humane Society, I believe all three will be sure all cats are spayed or neutered so there will NOT be more kittens in the future before they send them home. Good luck!
