Welcome to the Cats in the Cradle website!
Cats in the Cradle, Inc. is a no-kill, all-volunteer, 501(3)© non-profit organization dedicated to the rescue, care and placement of stray and special needs cats and kittens. CITC believes that all cats and kittens deserve the chance to live a life that is free of hunger, fear, pain and disease. Our kitties are loved and valued for who they are. Each one is a wonderful and beautiful animal, deserving of a loving and caring family. While they are with us, we try to prepare them to transition to their forever homes. They are exposed to a team of people so that they are used to human voices, touches and smells. They are taught to use scratching posts. Since we are cage free, they are used to other animals and sharing their space. By petting and picking them up, they learn affection and trust. Their distinct purrsonalities evole as they become oriented to a loving network of people and pets and they are better able to achieve a comfortably balanced pattern of behavior. When they finally do go home, they should have a good base of family living skills that will help them to integrate themselves successfully into their new environments.
Are you looking for kittens? We have a multitude of gorgeous babies just waiting for you! See them under "available cats"
Do you have a barn?
Are you looking for a natural way to reduce rodent population? CITC has many barn cats in need of good homes. All are spayed/neutered, tested and vaccinated. There is no adoption fee. We will transport and orient the cats to your barn.
Check out this article for more information on why your barn needs a cat, then contact us for more information at email@example.com.

CITC is continuing with an emphasis on finding homes for those kitties who have been with us for more than a year or who need a little extra help to gain recognition because they are shy, timid or somehow lack the self confidence to successfully relate to potential adopters and show their true "purr-sonalities." These kitties are wonderful and loving animals but they need a little extra help to orient to a new environment and will need the kind patience of a loving owner. The adoption fee is reduced.
The following kitties are members of Nona's Club. You can read their stories under Available Animals.

If a man could be crossed with a cat it would improve man, but it would deteriorate the cat."
