12. Portland’s first “cat cafe” will house cats for adoption from Cat Adoption Team

The first cat café in the Pacific Northwest, Purringtons Cat Lounge opens Saturday, January 24, 2015

Portland-area cat lovers can get a taste of the cat café trend sweeping the nation when Purringtons Cat Lounge opens its doors on Saturday, January 24. The first of its kind in Portland and the sixth “cat café” to open in the United States, Purringtons Cat Lounge will house cats for adoption from CAT.

The two organizations have been working together to make sure this unique coffee shop/adoption center is appropriate for cats and fun for customers.

“From the minute I heard about cat cafés, I knew it was something that Portland would love,” says Purringtons Cat Lounge president, Kristen Castillo. “Working with CAT ensures that Purringtons is good for cats and cats lovers alike.”

So far, eight cats have moved into Purringtons Cat Lounge, built to house six to 10 felines at once. Similar to CAT’s partnerships with other offsite adoption centers, adoptions from Purringtons will follow CAT’s adoption policies, procedures, and fees. 

“Having some of the Cat Adoption Team’s cats at Purringtons is a fantastic opportunity for people to meet and adopt these cats,” says Karen Green, CAT’s executive director. “Purringtons has made the cats’ comfort and safety big priorities, and we are excited for the café to open.”

In addition to housing adoptable cats, Purringtons Cat Lounge will serve a variety of beverages, pastries, and other light fare.

The grand opening celebration for Purringtons Cat Lounge will take place Saturday, January 24 from noon until 6 p.m. at Purringtons NE Porltand location (3529 NE Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.). A limited menu will be available in the café, and guests can go into the cat lounge for free
30-minute visits on a first-come, first-served basis.

The café will open with full menu, reservation system, and regular hours beginning Sunday, January 25. For additional details, visit purringtonscatlounge.com.

20. CAT to celebrate #GivingTuesday

The Cat Adoption Team (CAT) is participating in #GivingTuesday, a worldwide effort to celebrate and encourage generosity. On Tuesday, December 2, 2014, charities, families, businesses, and individuals around the globe will join together to show their support of charitable organizations.

According to #GivingTuesday’s website, this daylong celebration was founded in 2012 by New York’s 92nd Street Y in partnership with the United Nations Foundation. Today, the celebration has grown into a global movement that has engaged over 10,000 organizations worldwide.Gino UNselfie

CAT encourages our supporters to join us in this unique opportunity to celebrate programs and services that have a positive impact in our community.

Aside from making a donation, one of the most popular ways to get involved in #GivingTuesday is to share a photograph and text about why you give. Participants can join the fun by uploading a “selfless selfie” to social media sites using the hashtags #UNselfie and #GivingTuesday. CAT is offering a free template (pdf) to use when you and/or your feline shares an #UNselfie online.

To give back to CAT on December 2, make a donation securely online at giveguide.org/#catadoptionteam or through CAT’s donation site.

Share your #GivingTuesday and #UNselfie photos with us! Post to CAT’s Facebook page or tag @CatAdopt on Twitter and @CATAdoptPDX on Instagram.

30. A fitness program for cats at Tualatin Petco

More than 50% of pet cats in the United States are overweight, according to the latest research. To change that, the volunteer team at CAT’s adoption center inside the Petco Tualatin (8775 Tualatin-Sherwood Rd.) has developed a “kitty spa” to help some full-figured CAT cats become their healthiest selves.

Spa Day

Cats of all shapes and sizes come to the Cat Adoption Team looking for new families. After a thorough veterinary exam by our knowledgeable hospital staff, some cats receive a recommendation for a special diet and/or weight loss regimen. Our hospital staff helps create a plan for each cat to lose weight at a slow, steady, and healthy pace. If possible, these cats move offsite to be housed at CAT’s adoption center inside at the Tualatin Petco. There, CAT volunteers work specifically with overweight kitties to give them extra playtime and manage the cats’ diets so that each kitty can become his/her healthiest self.

In May, CAT and Petco hosted an open house at the Living Room & Kitty Spa which featured refreshments, games, raffles, vendor booths, and informative demos about how to keep your cat healthy and happy. The volunteer team there continues to work with cats on weight loss and health programs. All of the cats housed at the Petco Tualatin are available for adoption through CAT. Our trained adoption counselors work with adopters to share all the information about how to continue each cat’s training and diet plan after they go home. After all, playtime is a great opportunity to interact and bond with a new kitty!

Stop by to meet the available cats any time during Petco’s open hours. CAT’s volunteer adoption counselors are onsite to assist with adoptions from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. on weekends; during the week adoptions are completed at CAT’s main shelter in Sherwood (14175 SW Galbreath Dr.).
