A flea epidemic in the summer months would be no surprise, but this outbreak in the cold of winter has caught everyone off guard. We must all work together to rid ourselves of these menacing little creatures. Some of you are fortunate to live with people smart enough to know what procedures need to be taken. But then there are some people who are either too ignorant, or who just don't care. If your people aren't taking care of the problem properly, come to the Main Street Pet Shop after hours and Lou Lou Bell will help you out. Cats who are infested should stay away from others who are not. If you are flea-free, try to avoid infested areas and other cats who are still infested. Everyone should keep their distance from all dogs. We all know what flea bags they can be! Let's fight this together!  Let's win the battle one flea at a time!

Thanks to the outstanding generosity of many, there were not only enough toys for the less fortunate kittens in our community, but every homeless adult feline also woke up to a special gift on Christmas morning.  A very special thanks to Leo Shultz of the Broadway Deli for letting us use his store for a donation drop off point, and for wrapping and delivering the gifts as well. We couldn't have done it without your help, Leo. For your wonderful kindness, we wish you the best in the new year!


With snow falling in areas closely surrounding our community, comes the uncontrollable desire to play in it. As you head out for the snow, please keep the following warnings in mind:

  • White cats should wear a colorful collar or ribbon so they can be found if they become lost in the snow.
  • Loud noises can trigger an avalanche. While having a good time, try to keep your enthusiasm to a low purr.
  • During snowball fights, putting rocks in snowballs can cause serious injuries.
  • Beware of St. Bernards offering drinks.
  • Do not eat or play in the yellow snow!

With the efforts of the MEOWSETTE staff and many hard working volunteers, the cats and kittens in our community had a pawsitively great time this holiday season. Thanks to great planning by Lizzy, one of our newest staff members, the kittens enjoyed snacks, games, a puppet show, and goody bags, at a Christmas party held just for them. Each one also received a photo taken with Santa Paws. All the adult felines enjoyed ringing in the New Year at The Pussycat Lounge. This was something new we tried a couple of years ago, and it was such a big hit, it is now an annual event. We would like to share some of the great things that went on that night, but you know their motto, "What happens at The Pussycat Lounge, stays at The Pussycat Lounge!" A great big thank you to everyone who helped make 2018 a fantastic year, and a very Happy New Year to all!
