Rosie’s Story
Rosie was just eight weeks old when she arrived at Cat Depot with her sister and her mom who was pregnant again. The little cat had lived a rough life, and despite being rescued, Rosie’s future was still uncertain. She was born with a neurological condition that caused her to have limited control of her legs. 
Rosie was in desperate need of physical therapy and a patient caretaker. Deb DeVogt, a licensed veterinary technician with neurology experience, and one of our adoption counselors, stepped up and became Rosie’s foster mom and therapy caregiver.  
Rosie has made great strides with her physical therapy, and, although she still has a journey ahead of her, her future is looking brighter every day. Rosie will most likely always exhibit some signs of her neurological condition. However, she uses her litter box, and enjoys quieter play. Rosie is a very sweet and special girl who only wants to grow up and live nine happy and healthy cat lives. 
Watch Rosie’s amazing story and progress.

Voted Most Enthusiastic

Cat Depot Cat Pella

Pella is one of over 300 animals who were rescued as part of a local cruelty case investigation. He was in pretty rough shape when he arrived, but it never dampened his spirits. FIV-positive, Pella has recovered from some minor ailments and is now ready to begin life in a loving home. 


There seems to be no limit to Pella’s desire for both fun and love. He keeps himself entertained with the variety of toys in his pod and is happy to engage the other cats in play. Always eager for attention, Pella sits at the front of his cage with paws outstretched, hoping to get a passerby to play. While he loves being petted and brushed, his favorite thing is to rub all over people’s shoes.  


Stop by and visit with Pella, and you’ll immediately see why he is this week’s winner for most enthusiastic!


The recent cruelty case cats are now available for adoption at a reduced adoption fee of $50 through April 30, 2014. The discounted fee includes a veterinary exam, microchip, spay and neuter, vaccines, and a starter bag of food.


Help ensure that Cat Depot is there when animals need us most.
