Welcome to Safe Place For Pets

Meet Cathy: Hello! My name is Cathy, and I am a new arrival at the Safe Place for Pets Welcome Center. I am about 10 years old and a spayed female Maine Coon/tabby mix.

Even though I recently lost my loving mom, I am adapting very well to my new “home away from home.” In fact, I think I am living up to my Maine Coon genes! Besides being adaptable, we Maine Coon types are very social, loving, and curious. It took me less than a day to want to be out and about, exploring my new surroundings and meeting the other kitty guests…and I have already made friends with several of them!

I lived with 4 other cats in my home and got along well with them, too. I have never met a dog, though, so I don’t know if I would do well with one, although given how easygoing I am, I just might with the right one!

My favorite things are lying in the sunshine, playing with orange pipe cleaner circles, snuggling with my people, and BEING BRUSHED for as long as your arm and hand hold out!

I look forward to meeting you soon! To set up an “It’s Just Treats” get-together to see if we might be a purrfect match, contact Safe Place for Pets by email at or by phone at 719 359-0201.

Safe Place for Pets is celebrating 21 years!

For 21 years we've been helping the pets of the terminally ill find new loving homes and families to call their own. We have touched a lot of lives in our 21 years, both human and animal. SP4P thanks all of our past and present volunteers, supporters, pet partners, and donors. Without you, none of what we do would be possible. We are grateful for you.
