Shelter Update: The Flood

If you follow us on Facebook, then you already know about the torrential rain one night in September that caused the canals on three sides of the property to overflow and resulted in about a foot of water in the casitas and ranch house!

Fortunately, all the cats & kittens found high perches and were not harmed.

We lost some food and three of our new cat trees, and Jose and Carlos were left with a muddy mess to clean up!!

Our contractor has already completed some innovations to the casitas to prevent water coming in the doorways in a similar situation, but fingers crossed it will never happen again!

Thank you to Trisha Aljoe for donating funds for this and to Heather Sullivan, Marc Serrano, Steve Owen, Christine Salidivar & John Roberts for offering to buy new cat trees!

Featured Felines: Tracie & Tina

These girls were both left together at the shelter gate in a box so we assume they came from the same home.

Tracie is about four years old and a “soft” calico with a very sweet nature and would make a great adoption choice for someone who wants an older kitty.

She is currently in our Acclimation Casita but will be released to the yard if not adopted soon.

Tina has typical Siamese features and is around 7 months old, but very shy and needs some patience from a loving human.

Someone must have once cared for her since she had one eye removed as a kitten.

Dra. Eva has spayed both of them and they have received all their vaccinations and are ready for a real Forever Home!

If you are interested in giving Tracie or Tina or any of our deserving adult cats a second chance in life, contact Linda at for more info.


Sahara/Frida’s Journey:

In last month’s newsletter we featured Sahara, a beautiful blue-eyed Siamese type who had languished at the shelter for almost a year after being declawed and then abandoned by her owners.

Pat Brumfield read the article and immediately fell in love with her and decided it was time to bring a new furry companion into her life….and already had a new name picked out….Frida!

She just needed to get her to the San Diego area.

As it happened, PuRR volunteer Bama Brasseal was flying to Los Angeles and Pat agreed to drive there and meet them both at the airport.

Pat reports that Frida adapted quickly and loves sleeping in a real bed with her human.
