We're expecting 18"-24" of snow between today and tomorrow. For that reason, we will be shutting down operations until Weds., January 28th OR LONGER if we LOSE POWER. We will answer calls if possible, but please understand we have no way to get OUT to help you with your cat until all roads are open and safe to travel on and our driveway is plowed out.
We may lose internet access and/or phones so please do not contact us regarding urgent matters. If it's a health emergency with your cat, please contact Newtown Veterinary Specialists at 203-270-8387.
We hope you'll all be safe, stay home and snuggle with your kitties until the good weather returns!

Also, Lady Saturday's dental cleaning has been postponed a week so there's still time to help with donations towards her MUCH NEEDED care. Thank you very much!
Lady Saturday, our sweet senior rescue has suffered a great deal in the short time she's been in our care. Nearly starved to death when we got her, Lady S.required over 3 weeks of intensive care with our Vet before she was stable enough to go into foster care.
Lady S., who may be up to 15 years old, has surprised and delighted us by growing stronger every day. Her latest blood work revealed that all systems are functioning normally and because she's doing well she is finally able to handle the last thing on our "to do" list for her care.
Lady S. MUST have a dental cleaning, along with extractions, no doubt, because her mouth is a nightmare of tartar covered teeth and painful lesions from so many years of neglect. We estimate it will cost about $750.00 (with our discount), but it could easily go beyond that once our Vet gets a better look at Lady S's. mouth.
We hope you'll be able to share your love for Saturday with a small gift in honor of a senior cat you loved, or just because being part of Saturday's rescue matters. We are a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization so your donation is tax deductible. Our EIN is: 27-3597692
You can click on the "DONATE TODAY" button to the right to share your gift or you can mail a check to: Kitten Associates, P.O. Box 354, Newtown, CT 06470-0354 with a note that it should be for "Saturday."
Thank you for caring about our girl. She's truly a sweet soul and we can't wait to help her smile again with shiny clean teeth!
We had a great 2014, filled with rescues, but a few too many vet runs. We ended the year saving 65 lives, a few shy of our goal, but every save matters.
Our newest arrivals, available for adoption are Jasmine (top left), Jules (top right), Josh (bottom left) and Junipurr (bottom right). All are about 9 months old and are VERY mellow and affectionate. They don't mind getting their claws trimmed and Josh likes to give kisses.
The two kitties on the top of the image are girls and the bottom kitties are boys. They're vetted, microchipped and ready to rumble! If you'd like to know more about them or are interested in applying to adopt them, just pop over to our ADOPT page for more detail and to fill out a Pre-Adoption Form.
We wish you all a Happy New Year and may all our kitties know good health and lots of love.
