ABOUT: Morrie was a lucky cat for a couple of reasons. He was a stray and lucky to be rescued into the shelter, where he is safe from the dangerous outside world alone. He is a gentle, kind, well-behaved, bashful guy with cats and does not want any dust ups with other cats. He just isn’t a tough guy! While wandering on his own, he must have had an encounter with another cat and is now FIV-positive. Morrie is in excellent health, needs no medication, and can live as long as any other cat. The only stipulation is he must be an indoor cat.
The second reason why Morrie is a lucky cat: He is polydactyl, which means he has extra toes on his front paws. He is mostly a white medium-hair cat with black fluffy tail, brown tabby patches on his head and the back of one of his legs. He is one handsome cat with unique markings.
HEALTH: Morrie is in excellent health (even with the FIV+), litter box trained and neutered.

We are always looking for experienced dog walkers, foster care parents (for our kitten families and our birds), volunteers to join our cleaning teams, helping in the yard cleanups and mowing, and/or help in fundraising.

Don’t forget to bring your own shopping bags, and Crosby’s will give you a token or chip to place in a donation container on your way out. Make sure you ask for the token. Volunteers encourage you to put yours in the FOMAA can. Every token will count as cash to help us help local animals.
Safety from predators
If possible, we strongly suggest keeping your cats inside right now — and small dogs on leashes. There are coyote, hawk and eagle sightings all over town.
