Meet Cathy

Adoption date: 8/11/2017

Intake date: 5/26/2017

Adoption Announcement – 8/11/2017

Remember me? This is Cathy, the Maine Coon mix who arrived at the Safe Place for Pets Welcome Center a few months ago when I lost my mom.

I invited you to “It’s Just Treats” so we could meet and you would see for yourself what a great cat I am! It worked–my one and only IJT date was an instant match, and now I have a new home. My new mom and dad are very partial to Maine Coon cats and have adopted many Maine Coon rescue kitties through the years. They were very excited to meet me and were very happy when I liked them as much as they liked me.

Now I live in a very happy home in the Denver area, where friends, neighbors, and family visit often. I love the company of everyone, even the “little people” grandchildren which I have never experienced before now. However, I have discovered that even we Maine Coon types have limits—I am not thrilled with the family dogs who are staying with us for a few weeks. On the other hand, Mr. Bird, a parakeet rescued from the outdoors by my new mom, is very interesting—I am quite intrigued by him! Besides enjoying all the company, I love being brushed, sleeping with mom and dad, and welcoming them at the door when they come home! 

Life is good! Thank you to my prior mom and her daughter for taking good care of me and connecting me with Safe Place for Pets when I needed a new home. Thank you, too, to my prior mom’s daughter for taking me to Pikes Peak Veterinary Clinic for a check-up before I came to Safe Place, and another thank-you to Buxton Veterinary Hospital (Safe Place for Pets vet partner) for taking good care of my teeth, so I would be as healthy as possible when I started my new life! My story would not be complete without saying a big thank-you to all the dedicated Safe Place volunteers, who took care of me and made the very soft Snuggly fleece blanket and braided toy for me to enjoy in my new home, and one more big thank-you to my new mom and dad for loving me as much as I love them!

Adoption Bio – 5/26/2017

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 on the web ( or by phone (719-359-0201).
