She was already litter box trained when we brought her home.
Likes to carry toys in her mouth.

My favorite tricks and treats are: I do flips & carry small toys from place to place. Learned to open cabinets & doors. I play a mean game of catch & chase with my jingle ball. and Whisker Lickins Moist
Party Mix-any crunch flavor will do!

Where I hang out: Wherever mom is during the day.
On dad whenever Zaboo isn't there. I have a special blanket that I sleep on at night that's on the end of my pawents bed.
LOVE hanging out on the top of the cat tree!

My favorite grubs: Fancy Feast Classic
Purina Cat Chow

My pet peeves: The sweeper monster! Big cats jumping higher than me. Tractors rumbling across the fields make me very nervous but curious at the same time.
Meowmy spending too much time outside with the other animals! I get very jealous!!
Fluffinella!! Like I said before...I'm VERY jealous, especially with younger kitties than me!

What I love about my owners: They're spoiling me with undivided attention & love.

My cat hobbies: Follow Zaboo & drag all the toys out of the basket.
Hide my toys under things so I can swat at the hand trying to get them out!

Pounce on Zaboo frequently & swat at Patches tail. Daily races through the house with Flufinella or Patches.

I'm an first class explorer of everything! If you don't think I can get into it...guess again...MOL!

Just being ornery!

Pet motto: Learning is an on-going process.

How We Met

We were drawn to a pet store that we don't normally go to. We'd walked past her cage once but my hubby felt the need to take another look. He saw her hiding in a hammock at the top of the cage while her siblings played beneath her. She purred & kissed dad immediately when brought our & handed to him. She mewed softly at me & the kids. That's all it took to win dad's heart!

BFAS Best Friends Animal Society
For over 30 years, BFAS has been running the nation’s largest no-kill sanctuary for companion animals & building effective programs all across the country that reduce the number of animals entering shelters. Their mission is to end the killing in America's animal shelters & create a time when there are No More Homeless Pets. This is done by building community programs & partnerships all across the nation. BFAS believe that by working together we can Save Them All.

Mission:To bring about a time when there are No More Homeless Pets. Vision: A better world through kindness to animals. Guiding principles: Golden Rule: To treat all living things as we ourselves would wish to be treated. Kindness: To demonstrate compassion & respect for all living creatures. Positive influence: To judge our effectiveness by the extent to which animal lives are saved & improved, & by the positive experience of the people we touch. Leadership: To lead by example, developing, promoting & sharing great new ideas & programs to help animals. Authenticity: To do what we say we do.

BFAS is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization & animal welfare society. At the core of BFAS' work is the dream that one day animals will no longer be killed in America's shelters. By implementing S/N & TNR programs to reduce the number of animals who enter shelters, & increasing the number of people who adopt pets, we know we can end the killing. We know we can Save Them All. The heart of BFAS is the Sanctuary, where, at any given time, about 1,700 animals are turning their lives around, receiving the medical help they need, & getting love & acceptance to help them overcome their past. While searching for their forever homes, they live in a scenic, healing environment among human & animal friends. BFAS owns nearly 3,700 acres, & lease another 17,000 acres of state & federal land. Nearly 30,000 people visit every year to meet the animals & tour what has become the nation's largest no-kill sanctuary for companion animals.

Cat initiatives: Cats comprise the majority of animals dying in shelters - up to 70 % in some places. Most of these are community cats (stray & free-roaming). BFAS is working to save lives by implementing innovative TNR programs across the country.

Charity Navigator gives BFAS 3 out of 4 stars, Charity Watch gives it a B+, GuideStar awards 5 stars and BBB Wise Giving says BFAS meets 18 of the 20 standards for charity accountability.

Thanks very much for your support. Prayers 4 all in need. Voted. Peace & love. Kitty Kisses. Dean

ASPCA was the first humane society to be established in North America & is, today, one of the largest in the world. ASPCA was founded by Henry Bergh in 1866 on the belief that animals are entitled to kind & respectful treatment at the hands of humans, & must be protected under the law. Headquartered in NYC, the ASPCA maintains a strong local presence, & with programs that extend their anti-cruelty mission across the country, ASPCA is recognized as a national animal welfare organization. It is a privately funded 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation, & proud to boast more than 1 million supporters across the country.

As the first humane organization to be granted legal authority to investigate & make arrests for crimes against animals, ASPCA is wholly dedicated to fulfilling the mission through nonviolent approaches. ASPCA provides local & national leadership in three key areas: caring for pet parents & pets, providing positive outcomes for at-risk animals & serving victims of animal cruelty.
Incorporated in 1866 by a special act of the NY State legislature, the ASPCA has a history rich in challenges & victories—from providing care & protection for the city's working horses & transforming dog pounds into professionally run adoptions facilities to founding an animal hospital that is still running today.
The ASPCA's mission is "to provide effective means for the prevention of cruelty to animals throughout the United States."

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++- +
Today, the ASPCA is the nation’s second-largest animal welfare grant maker, providing support to U.S.-based nonprofit animal welfare organizations through cash grants, sponsorships, executive & technical assistance, & training. Since 2013, the ASPCA has given over $35 million in grants to nearly 1,600 animal shelters, municipal & governmental agencies, rescue groups, sanctuaries, & other animal welfare organizations nationwide. Organizations in all 50 states & U.S. territories have received funding & are eligible to apply.
Grants are available for a wide range of activities that further the ASPCA’s mission. These include:
Animal Shelter & Rescue Grants, Anti-Cruelty Grants, Equine Grants, & Emergency & Disaster Response Grants.

Most people are aware of & have seen Sarah McLachlan appearing in advertisements for the ASPCA. She filmed a two-minute advertisement for the organization which featured her song "Angel". The advertisement's imagery of shelter animals mixed with the soundtrack & McLachlan's simple appeal for donations has raised $30 million for the ASPCA since it began to air in 2006.

ASPCA earns 3 out of 4 stars from Charity Navigator, 4 out of 5 stars from GuideStar & meets 20 standards for charity accountability, no rating from Charity Watch.

Thank you very much for your support. Prayers 4 all in need. Voted Peace & love. Kitty Kisses. Dean

CW Charity Watch
CW, founded more than 20 years ago, is America's most independent, assertive charity watchdog. CW does not merely repeat what a charity reports using simplistic or automated formulas. CW dives deep to let you know how efficiently a charity will use your donation to fund the programs you want to support. It exposes nonprofit abuses & advocates for your interests as a donor. The mission of CW, a nonprofit charity watchdog & information service, is to maximize the effectiveness of every dollar contributed to charity by providing donors with the information they need to make more informed giving decisions.
Goals:To research & evaluate the efficiency, accountability & governance of nonprofit organizations; to educate the public about the importance of wise giving; to inform the public of wasteful or unethical practices of nonprofits & provide recognition to highly effective & ethical charities; to advise CW members & conduct special investigations & evaluations of nonprofits; to expand & re-define our programs periodically to meet the continuing challenge of keeping the contributor informed.
CW analysts perform in-depth evaluations of complex charity financial reporting, including audited financial statements, tax forms,annual reports, state filings, & other documents. Once CW's analysis of a charity is complete, CW performs two end calculations for Program % & Cost to Raise $100. CW averages the two results on our scale then assign the charity a final letter grade efficiency rating ranging from A+ to F.
1)Program % reflects the percent of total expenses a charity spent on its programs in the year analyzed.
2)Cost to Raise $100 reflects how much it cost the charity to raise each $100 of cash donations from the public in the year analyzed.

Program % Cost to Raise $100 Efficiency Rating
90-100% $0 - 4 A+
80 - 89% $5 - 11 A
75 - 79% $12 - 15 A-
72 - 74% $16 - 19 B+
68 - 71% $20 - 26 B
65 - 67% $27 - 30 B-
61 - 64% $31 - 33 C+
56 - 60% $34 - 37 C
50 - 55% $38 - 40 C-
36 - 49% $41 - 59 D
0 - 35% $60 - 100 F

A range = Excellent, B range = Good, C range = Satisfactory / Average, D = Unsatisfactory / Poor, F = Failing, ? = Insufficient Information

In CW's view, a program percentage of 60% or greater, and a Cost to Raise $100 of $35 or less, are the minimum efficiency standards reasonable for most charities. Ratios in this range typically indicate a"satisfactory" or "C range" rating .
CW is a 501(c)3 public charity. Donations are tax-deductible as permitted by law. A membership contribution of $50 or more gives you one year of online access to all of nearly 600 A+ to F charity ratings. I did not pay $50 so this is why not every group I have reviewed has a grade from CW.
Thanks very much for your support. Prayers 4 all in need. Voted. Peace & love. Dean

PSC PetSmart Charities
PSC & PSC of Canada are non-profit organizations dedicated to saving the lives of homeless pets. In the US, PSC is the largest financial supporter of animal welfare & among the 400 largest philanthropic
organizations working on any issue. PSC was formed in 1994 by PetSmart founders Jim & Janice Dougherty, who chose never to sell dogs & cats within their stores. Their primary goal is to save the lives of homeless
pets through programs such as their In-Store Adoption Centers in many PetSmartlocations, Rescue Waggin' distaser relief program, grant program for animal
welfare agencies across North America, & community adoption events.Another focus of the organization is increasing S/N services to help communities solve the problem of pet overpopulation.

The charity has made major donations to further animal welfare. In 2007 it gave a $420,750 to the University of California-Davis. According to the organization, the fund will be used to finance an urgent need for an
academic position dedicated to extending medical knowledge to shelter professionals. In 2006 PSC awarded $2.3 million in grants to help disaster relief agencies & animal welfare organizations address the needs of pets abandoned, hurt or lost during hurricanes & other natural disasters. In 2006 it offered a request for proposals for $20,000 matching grants toward the establishment of state animal response teams in the U.S.
The SART model is a public-private partnership for preparation & response to animal emergencies.

Animal welfare & adoption support: PSC fund S/N programs to reduce the number of feral or unwanted animals. It also funds animal rescue operations that transfer animals to adoption shelters.

Most PetSmart locations have an adoption center to house animals from local animal welfare organizations. PetSmart donates space for each center in their stores, & local animal welfare organizations are invited to bring their animals into the centers. PetSmart stores host adoption events by partnering with local animal rescue & welfare organizations. In addition, PSC sponsors four national adoption events each year showcasing animals from multiple adoption groups in each store. On average, more than 17,000 pets find a new home during each national adoption event.

Charity Navigator gives PSC 4 stars,BBB Wise Giving states PSC meets the 20 standards for charity accountability, Guide Star gives PSC 3 out of 5 stars
& Charity Watch gives PSC an A.

PSC awarded our shelter, CAHW, a generous grant: Funds totaling $97,310 over two years. The Grant Funds will be used by the Organization solely for the purpose of S/N surgeries.

DFL Dumb Friends League
DFL founded in 1910, was named after a London, England, animal welfare group called “Our Dumb Friends League.” In those days, the term “dumb” was widely used to refer to animals because they lacked the power of human speech. Today, DFL is headquartered in Denver. It is the largest community-based animal welfare organization in the Rocky Mountain region—providing a strong & steadfast voice for those who cannot speak for themselves.

As part of a compassionate community, we: Rescue sick, injured & neglected animals; Investigate cases of neglect & mistreatment; Provide shelter, veterinary care, & behavior & training programs to homeless companion animals & horses; Adopt homeless pets &
horses to new homes; Reduce pet overpopulation through mobile S/N projects in underserved areas; Offer learning opportunities for the public to keep more pets in homes; & Educate children & adults about animals & their needs

Over the years, we have been able to significantly reduce the number of homeless pets, find homes for more pets, & support an overall better quality of life for animals in the community. Throughout our history, the
benevolent Denver metro community & beyond has helped sustain the organization so we can fulfill our mission.

DFL has one of the highest placement rates of homeless pets in the country among shelters of our size. In the last year alone, 17,656 pets & 88 equines were adopted, reunited or transferred to placement partners or impounding agencies. Our goal, by 2018 or sooner, is to reach a 90 percent or greater placement rate for all cats & dogs that come to us for rehoming.

We are a pre-emptive care organization, a no-suffering organization, & a preventative organization. Our mission is commitment to the welfare of animals: to provide shelter & care for animals, programs & services
that enhance the bond between animals & people, & be advocates for animals,speaking for those who cannot speak for themselves.

Charity Navigator awarded 4 stars, GuideStar awarded 4 out of 5 stars. No review
on Charity Watch or BBB Wise Giving.

Thanks very much for your support. Prayers for all. Voted. Peace & love.
