Senior Feline Adoption Event
Looking for a senior cat with a lot of love to give? Join us on Sunday, November 2, from 12:00-4:00 p.m. at the Old Firehouse/Senior Center, 597 Broadway (27th Street) in Bayonne. Below are ten reasons why senior cats rule! - When senior cats are adopted, they seem to understand that they've been rescued, and are all the more thankful for it. - A senior cat's personality has already developed, so you'll know if he or she is a good fit for your family. - You can teach an old cat new tricks! Senior cats have the attention span and impulse control that makes them easier to train than their youthful counterparts. - A senior cat may very well already know basic household etiquette (like not attacking your feet at night) anyway! - Senior cats are often already litter trained and are less likely to "forget" where the box is. - A senior cat won't grow any larger, so you'll know exactly how much cat you're getting. - Senior cats are often content to just relax in your company, unlike younger cats, who may get into mischief because they're bored. - Speaking of relaxing, senior cats make great napping buddies. - Senior cats often know that scratching posts (not furniture) are for scratching and toys (not hands or feet) are for biting. - Senior cats are some of the hardest to find homes for - so when you adopt a senior cat, you're truly saving a life.

A Meow of Thanks from Clara.....and HCAL!
On behalf of our blind kitty, Clara, HCAL would like to thank everyone who recently donated towards the surgery to remove Clara's diseased eye. Clara underwent her surgery several weeks ago and, except for a minor setback with an abscess, all went well! Our thanks also to Dr. Michael Santiago and the staff at East Orange Animal Hospital for the wonderful care they gave Clara.Saving the best news for last - Clara has found a forever home with Leah, who had been fostering Clara for us! A happy ending for all!
