Cenla Cat Project: Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
The grant money was used to reduce the adoption fees on 20 cats. Ten were long-term cats and 10 were for adoptions by U.S. veterans.
The biggest impact was on our long-term cats. Reducing the adoption fee gave adopters the incentive to give a chance at a forever home to our most timid felines. We still have funds for three long-term cats and two veterans.

Blythe, better known as BooBoo, came to us in April 2018 from a cat-hoarding situation. She was 10 months old and terribly shy. She was extremely docile. She would approach you for pets, and loved toys and treats. But BooBoo needed someone who understood cats and would give her the time and space she needed to adjust. She was adopted in late 2018 and returned the next day because she wouldn’t come out of the closet. On Oct. 5 this year, she found her forever home. Her family gave her time to settle in, and she has turned into a real lap cat. On Nov. 14, we received an update on her. Her family said, “We love BooBoo so much! She is absolutely perfect and fits so well in our home.”
