Cozy Cat Cottage helped us with a litter of kittens we found outside last year. I had two house bunnies and two cats of my own (all spayed/neutered), plus five foster baby bunnies and unfortunately the inn was too full to keep the kittens long term. A very helpful volunteer at Cozy Cat gave me some tips on bottle feeding, litter training and weaning to wet and then dry food. Once the kittens were weaned to dry food I took them to Cozy Cat where they were vetted and adopted.When I brought the kittens to Cozy Cat, a different volunteer showed me around and talked about their facility, answered random questions from me and let me meet some of the cat residents. On another occasion one of their volunteers helped me rescue a stray black cat on Halloween Eve in a busy parking garage in downtown Columbus. She crawled all over the cement floor with me dragging a scarf to lure the terrified cat from under cars. We have a full house right now, but I would work with Cozy Cat again any time for Good Samaritan surrenders or to adopt. I hope they are still around in 15 or 20 years when it's time to add to our family again.

I got the most adorable loving kitten there nearly 17 years ago. We lost him 2 weeks ago and he was nearly 18 years old. His mother Jezzabel, had been attacked by dogs when pregnant. We adopted Jaba, but called him buster. We miss him terribly.

Surely Cozy Cat must be doing some good. I agree with Maggie, however. I had a similar experience with an adult cat who needed housing almost two years ago. I was desperate to find even a temporary place for her. The person in charge just said, no room here and didn't appear interested or very helpful. I was forced to leave her in a friends basement. She became trapped in the sump area there, unbeknowest to me, and two nights later died. It was absolutely heartbreaking.

It is very hard for us to turn down a feline in need, but we are keenly aware that we cannot save them all and our first obligation is to provide food, medical care, and shelter to our current residents. We receive no federal, state, or local funding. We can only take in felines as room and funds permit.

I rescued a mom and kittens. CC refused to take the mother cat and the kittens weren't weaned. I was told they couldn't place adults. I believe if you are in rescue you must do the right thing and take the whole family.

We are greatly concerned with this comment as Cozy Cat Cottage would never take only kittens that were not weaned. We suspect that you are confusing us with another shelter. If you would like to discuss, please contact us. Thank you.

Went to other adoption places. This one was the best. I got a 3 month old kitten. They care about their cats. You have to agree that if you ever had a reason to have to give up cat (there are very few REAL reasons for this), you have to bring back to them. They do NOT want any more cats on the street. Who would give up a family member anyways? :/

I have "hung out" at other places. This place put all others to shame. I LOVE this place!!!!!

Cozy Cat is a real classy and respected organization. The staff and volunteers are very professional and treat each of the cats as if they owned them personally. They shower them with lots of love and attention, which helps them get adopted sooner. I fostered a litter of five kittens for them last year and it was a wonderful experience. I ended up adopting two of them - a beautiful tuxie and a tortie - and the other three were adopted right away. I highly recommend adopting a cat or kitten from Cozy Cat, or helping through volunteer work. It could change your life!

I have adopted cats, fostered, volunteered and donated to this wonderful organization. They are always helpful, and have helped me with a couple lost cats that we have been successful in reuniting with their families. Cozy Cat volunteers go above and beyond and will bring hopeless, abandoned cats into the shelter and find them wonderful homes.

We have adopted both of our kitties from Cozy Cat and can't say enough positive things about them. Both Benny and Vincent were well socialized, 100% healthy, and so loving. The staff is super knowledgable, helpful, and courteous and helped us through the introductory period when we introduced the two cats to each other. I will always adopt from Cozy Cat so long as I live in Ohio and recommend it to anyone!!

I adopted two wonderful cats from CCC because of the great work I had seen them doing in the community. Since adopting, my love of CCC has only grown! They do incredible work to support their cats at all stages of life, and they have a dedicated community working tirelessly to support and care for their animals.

Thank you CCC! You gave me my world.

I have been volunteering here for over a year. While I love animals more than anything else, in the past I have never volunteered at an animal rescue center for very long simply because the animals weren't the sole focus of the group or it was too hard to see an animal you've grown to love put to sleep because it was too old or didn't get adopted quickly enough. At cozy cat cottage, this is not the case. Each and every cat is loved and taken care of. Everyone is there to help the cats. The volunteers all know each and every cat and their personality. I've never been anywhere that cares so much about helping animals. I'm proud to say that I volunteer here.

When we lost our 16 year old kitty, a friend referred us to Cozy Cat Cottage. Many things were evident when we walked through the door...first was that all of the cats and kittens were obviously very healthy! No runny eyes or sneezing ~ and, although there were many many kitties to choose from, it was not over-crowded and amazingly the shelter did NOT have an odor. The shelter was very very clean! We adopted a sweet kitten rescued from a country road. She had been ill and in the nursery for weeks getting well. They didn't give up on her and we are so grateful. We since have brought in 3 rescued pregnant mama kitties and they all have found great homes - kittens and mama's! We actually ended up adopting one of the mama's! I was so moved by our experiences that I became a volunteer and am now a board member. I now witness, from behind the scenes, the high level of professionalism of everyone there and - MOST importantly, the high level of care and compassion given to every kitty no matter the age or health. We go the extra mile, and then some for every single one! In my opinion, there are not enough stars to rate this shelter as highly as deserved!

We have adopted 2 wonderful kitties from Cozy Cat Cottage over the past 2 years. Because of that experience I became a volunteer. I can honestly say that all of the volunteers, and all of the directors, go more than the extra mile to give Cozy Cat cats & kittens everything they need to be healthy, happy and loved - as well as finding the right home for each one of them. Every kitty there is special and wonderful in their own unique ways and they're just waiting for their forever homes!

I first started dealing with CCC in 2010. I had a litter of feral kittens and Cindi helped me get them spayed and neutered and gave me great advice on how to find them good homes. None of the other rescues would help me. I was impressed at how beautiful and clean the place is. You would never have guessed there were a lot of cats inthe building. In 2012, I lost my job. Again, Cindi helped me with food for my own furbabies when I was desperate. I really appreciated her caring, loving attitude and all of her help. Without CCC's guidance I would never had gotten the feral popula@tion in my neighborhood under control! I go in every so often to see the kitties and donate when I can. I have referred many friends to CCC and they are delighted with the furbabies they adopted there. CCC is a true asset to Columbus and the surrounding cities.

Cozy Cat Cottage has been SO WONDERFUL to me over the last couple years. I came across CCC while looking for somewhere to take a cat that I found abandoned at my apartment complex. I wanted to make sure that he was truly abandoned and not microchipped. So CCC said I could bring him in and they would check. He was not chipped and although not in the greatest shape from being outside I told CCC I would take him home with me. They were so happy I was taken him in! They gave me so much encouragement. They let me know they were doing a low cost spay and neuter (since Sampson was estimated 2 years and not neutered we wanted to take care of it asap) they were able to fit Sampson in and get him fixed for us. I just really love all the CCC community that has formed from that organization. If you have questions or concerns they will answer, and my Sampson was not even a CCC cat! Amy and Cindi are specifically special to me as they have helped me numerous times. We unexpectedly lost Sampson 6 months after having him, and we did not have the money to have him cremated. Amy heard of this and called rascals animal hospital and got Sampsons remains for me... She is so wonderful. I don't know what I would do without my Sampson now that I have him safe with me at home. Months later when looking for another cat I saw a post on Facebook of not one but two older adult cats. The community that is CCC is SO AMAZING. That when we fell in love with those two older adult cats someone took care of their adoption fee, not only that but numerous people dropped off food/litter to me and CCC for those two adult kitties supporting the adoption of two adults finally getting adopted. And I couldn't have been more grateful. It was then I truly fell in love with cats and CCC. My Skeeter and Ali whom are aged 10-15 are such a blessing to my life. And if it were not for Cozy Cat I wouldn't have had these sweet babies. Anyone, looking for a wonderful organization to support in Columbus area definitely choose CCC. When you have a CCC cat you become part of a family. I have so much joy posting updates STILL of my babies! The employees/volunteers remember my babies and love them too! Cozy cat is an organization unlike any I've ever seen and to be a small tiny teeny part of it is extremely rewarding to me. We love you Cozy Cat!

In May, our 6 year old cat Holly passed away from cancer. Our other cat, Ivy, was so lonely that she would wander the halls and yowl outside our bedroom door most of the night looking for her sister. As we had adopted both Holly and Ivy from the Cozy Cat Cottage when they were kittens, we decided to visit them again to see if they had any kittens that might help Ivy cope with the loss of her sister. The day we were there, almost all of their available cats were adults. They were very sweet cats, but we didn't want to risk there being dominance fighting in the household.

Cozy Cat did have two 7 month old kittens (sisters) who were very friendly. They were older than what we had been hoping to find, but were so affectionate that we fell in love with the both of them. We had only been looking for one kitten, but we wound up adopting them both. (We just couldn't decide on only one of them, and it seemed wrong to separate the sisters.) All of their cats available for adoption are already spayed/neutered and microchipped, so that was one less thing for us to need to worry about.

The Cozy Cat Cottage staff spent a long time with us, helping us come up with a plan for introducing the new kittens to Ivy. Thanks to their help and advice, Ivy has quickly accepted her newly adopted little sisters without any fighting at all from either side. (She has also stopped her middle of the night opera singing as she is no longer lonely.)

Ivy regularly plays with her little sisters (Polly, a polydactyl kitten and Missy, short for Mistletoe) She is very gentle with them (for which we are glad as they are about half her size currently). The 3 girls spend a lot of time together. And while we have yet to see Ivy curl up to nap with them, we have seen them all napping on our bed at the same time, with only a little space between them. It's only a matter of time before we expect to see them all curled up in a big ball together.

Thanks to the Cozy Cat Cottage, instead of one very lonely and very sad cat, we now have 3 happy, healthy, and very snuggly cats. And by sheer coincidence, all 3 are tuxedo cats. The kittens look enough like our Ivy and spend enough time with her that they could be mistaken as her kittens instead of her adopted little sisters. The Cozy Cat Cottage staff even called us recently to see how the 3 girls were getting along and to see if we needed anything at all. Clearly, they care about the cats in their care, even after those cats have been adopted.

Two years ago this week I lost my sweet Blackie cat.....I was heart broken and wanted another kitty.. I knew of one place, and checked them out, but I didn't find my new love... I went to the site that helps you match with kitties.. Cozy Cat Cottage came up with kitties I was looking for.. I went to there Website, and found so many pictures of kitties... I spent a lot of time on the site... One day I decided to go see the kitties. I was very impressed with the facility.. The staff was very caring, and so very helpful.. The facility was clean, and the kitties were very healthy. Healthy was important to me because my cat was sick his 14 years... First time I didn't find my kitty, but I was told to come back in a couple of weeks, and I did. I saw so many kittens and kitties, and it was hard to choose.. I had 3 kittens in my arms and saw another one, and asked to see him... He purr and kissed me.. I know he was the one.... He went home with me that morning.. He did get a kitten bug, and I called Cozy Cat Cottage.. The director Cindi came in that evening to meet me and my kitty... She said he needed some meds for 14 days... They put him in the medical unit, and everyday they emailed me his progress.. it was so wonderful of them to treat him ... After his meds he came home with me... He is a very healthy 13 month old boy... I was so impressed with them that I started to volunteer for them... There are others things that make them so great, but one that is personal to me finding my kitty... I did go by another place, but then again that place was not for me... I made the perfect choice...

The first time I can in I was still grieving, and they said to come back when you were ready.. I can back later and there he was.. My baby. I knew he was the one.. Cozy cat was so warm and I could see how each cat and kitten was loved and protected.. My kitten had a problem that kittens get, and Cozy Cat Cottage medical team made him well. He is a happy healthy kitten growing each day.. I was so impressed with them that I started to volunteer, and my heart is so happy I did. Such a great place, and the love of the kitties is is overwhelming..

Cozy Cat Cottage is a wonderful rescue, always taking in cats and kittens that barely have a chance, and taking the time to provide medical care and love until they are healthy and able to be adopted. The facility is a clean, cage free environment in which cats can wander and have room to run and play, but they are equipped with separate quarantine rooms to ensure successful treatment of sick cats and kittens without compromising the overall health of the shelter. I came to Cozy Cat to adopt my first cat in 2013, but was soon back to volunteer and eventually adopted another cat! Both had quality medical care I know they would not have received at any other rescue. Thanks to Cozy Cat, I was able to adopt two cats which would likely have never been given a chance to fight at any other place!

I love Cozy Cat Cottage; they have such a loving heart for all the kitties. Their storefront is very clean; you would never know there were so many beautiful kittens and cats there when you walk in the door. They do all possible to save hurt kitties and the pregnant momma kitties and their unborn babies too. They have reduced price spay and neuter (and other vet needs) throughout the year, so folks with limited funds can take care of their kitties. I am so proud to have them in my community, and support them whenever possible.

I adopted my first cat Jillian from Cozy Cat Cottage. I had gone in with the intention of adopting a kitten and eventually declawing the kitten, not knowing how bad declawing is. The adoption counselor was amazing and talked me into looking at the cats that were already declawed and was very kind about educating me. I end up finding the best adult cat just because of that. I later adopted two other cats from there and volunteering. The facility is amazingly clean and the cats that are visible to the public are healthy and happy. The sick cats get regular vet care and medicine. I love that Cozy Cat is a no kill shelter and will only euthanize if the cat is in pain and can't be cured. The love and money put into each individual cat is amazing and wonderful and is what keeps me coming back, volunteering and donating.

My first experience with Cozy Cat Cottage was when I was working near the adoption center. I have always loved cats and had been holding off on getting a cat until the right time. I went to just explore the cats and get a little cat love time and the volunteers there were very helpful and weren't upset that I just came in to get a little cat love. A year later it was time for me to get my first cat since graduating from college and I went to the shelter with a very clear view in mind of what cat I was going to get. I wanted a tabby kitten. Little did I find out that the shelter takes in previously owned cats that have already been declawed and I wanted a cat without claws so they directed me to the cats that were declawed. I picked up my Jillian and fell in love instantly. I ended up leaving with a completely different view and cat. The shelter educates it's future pet owners and helps the cats live the best life. They did not want me to get my new cat declawed so they showed me cats that had already been declawed. They believe that it is inhumane and that it is akin to cutting our fingers off down to the first knuckle. They changed my view and my next cat still has his claws and there are no problems. They are also very willing to take back cats that have previously been adopted. They would rather get a return than the cat be thrown out due to a problem. They are very helpful and took me in with open arms when I wanted to help out and get even more cat time. I now clean the rooms for the sick kitties and you can see how much love and attention all of the cats get and how well the sick ones are taken care of. I hardly have to do anything because they are so well cared for and frequently cared for that their quarentine rooms are very clean and easy to tidy up. This cleanliness can be said about every aspect of the shelter.

Cozy Cat Cottage is special and clean. To many strays kitties it is a dream. There is so much to do, I swear that it's true. Like scooping poops and jumping through hoops. The things I have done are second to none. From vacuuming to swabbing the floors, even using windex on the doors. Making kicker toys with catnip, but don't take a dip! From Washing kitty cat bowls and checking blankets for holes. And who can forget the annual event but the best thing is seeing kittens and cats get the very best care at the Cozy Cat lair! CCC is the most well run and fiscally responsible shelter I have ever seen. the love and tender care given so selflessly - is truly amazing! I fostered a mom and her 2 kittens - and I just fell in love - the kittens found their forever home!

I have volunteered with this nonprofit for several years. I love that I can walk in and play with all the cats on the adoption floor. The only cats in enclosures are in them for their safety due to size or if they have tested positive for FIV. This is a place where all cats get a chance even those with FIV, most shelters put FIV + cats to sleep.

The volunteers are knowledgeable and friendly; they want each cat to go home to the right home that is going to love them.

The directors are awesome. I have made many friends over the years.

I have adopted 2 cats from Cozy Cat Cottage. Both are wonderful loving animals. Gemma was young when I adopted her. She was fostered with her brothers and sisters. She is so loving and unique. Cody was 9.5 years old when I adopted him a few months ago. He was returned by his owners. Once you are. Cozy Cat you are one for life. They chip the cat with Cozy Cats name so that if they are abandoned or lost they will be returned to CCC. Cody is a wonderful cat despite being returned to Cozy Cats at an older age. It is because Cozy Cat Cottage is just a huge homey clean living room for 100+ cats with many moms and dads to care for them. Since being involved with this organization I have seen numerous acts of kindness saving cats all ages. It's phenomenal. Below is Gemma on the left and Cody on the right.

We were searching for a kitten, and found the perfect one at Cozy Cat Cottage. Everyone was helpful. I was impressed by the number of volunteers who were happily working away, cleaning thoroughly, checking on every detail for the cats' well-being, and interacting lovingly with the cats. The design of their facility provided a variety of environments. Since the kitten in which we were interested was not quite cleared/available for adoption, we needed to wait another day. No problem for us, as we wanted the best outcome for her. We appreciated that the CCC cared for the cats' well-being. Clearly, everyone at CCC knew the cats and cat behavior very well, and they were focused first and foremost on the well-being of the animals and making appropriate decisions about placement in forever homes.. We were able to take little Jasmine into a separate room to get to know her before deciding to adopt. Things went well, and playful, silly Jasmine is now our little one. I would recommend CCC most highly to folks who are looking for a cat or kitten.

Cozy Cat is truly a place that is in it for the cats. They made decisions based upon the needs for the cats. They clean their facility so when you walk in you don't know there are 50+ cats there, unlike others places that had such a horrid odor. They don't look like hoarders in there. They take the right amount so it is not overrun. They treat each kitty like it is their own. They are a top notch place!

Cozy Cat always is clean and does not smell (most people always say ugh you can tell when someone has a cat it smells awful - this place has lots of cats and does not smell!) With the help of great volunteers that keep it clean. They truly love the cats there and make sure they can do whatever it takes to make them healthy and happy. This place is top notch and I always try to donate when I can :)

CCC made the transition for us from dog owners to cat owners so smooth.
Their package deal is unbeatable.

When I moved to Columbus, I googled nonprofit no kill cat only shelters and found Cozy Cat! I visited and right away felt that this was a place I could get behind and volunteer with. Amy, Cindi and the other volunteers were very knowledgeable about each cat which was impressive considering the number of cats. The shelter was kept very clean, due to a great supportive volunteer community. I volunteered for cleaning shifts for a few months as well as taking cats for showings at PetCo/Smart to help gain visibility and increase adoptions. Eventually my husband and I adopted two FIV+ male cats (adopted a year apart from one another) and have been fostering mama cats and their kittens intermittently for the last two years. Cozy Cat has been very supportive of us during each adoption and throughout our fostering experiences. They have a very active Facebook page and are well known and respected in the Columbus MSA especially for their TNR and rescue work. Our now healthy kitties were rescued when they were on death's door, but Cozy Cat did not give up on them. I have seen this time and again and it makes me feel so proud to support and be a part of such a wonderful organization!

We my mother and I went to cozy cat cottage to get a new cat. They the staff were so helpful and considerate of my mother who an elderly person. They got her a chair and put a towel on the chair. They brought out trixie, they explained that she was born in a barn, so she was feral. She sat on my mom's lap and purring away. She let me hold her and purred also. They have been there for me when we first got her. They go out of there way to rescue animals, staying up with kitties that have been abandoned, bottle feeding them. They deserve an award I never seen such a caring shelter for kitty and cat furbabies. Trixie although was feral she is the snuggler. Our mother has passed on trixie was comforting to mother. God bless all of them. They deserve like I said they go out of the way to help abandoned animals

Cozy Cat Cottage is a sanctuary for cats that operates at the highest levels of cleanliness and health that I have ever seen in a cat rescue. They are VERY picky about who adopts the cats that come there. They believe that the CATS COME FIRST and the humans are integrated around the cats. The love they have for our 4 legged feline friends is top notch and I have adopted several there and multitudes of my family and friends have as well.

Started my experience with this agency as a high school volunteer many years ago, then I convinced my parents to get a black cat named Salem in 2006. The agency did a great job explaining cat care and adoption procedures and Salem was a great girl. Sadly she passed away in May but Cozy Cat was very supportive and a month later helped my parents get two more felines. Both felines are both very happy with my parents and cozy cat always welcomes updates on their cats and they have given me great advice on my own two stray cats I've taken in. Great shelter all around!

When the local feral cat had kittens, I called. Despite a long waiting list, the worker did not brush me off but gave me some useful advice and encouragement. She could have just said, were full, but she showed compassion and a true love of animals by staying on the line with me. They care.

What an amazing organization to not only house and care for these animals but love them and find them forever homes! I have the utmost respect for all of the people who help make Cozy Cat Cottage the second chance for so many little furry lives! ❤️

I adopted my wonderful cat, Willy, from Cozy Cat Cottage. He has been the best addition to our family. Cozy Cat does a great job making sure you're getting a kitty thay will fit your/your family's needs. They know their cats well, and are serious about making sure everyone (including the cats!) are happy with their new living situation. I am beyond happy with their establishment and their practices in caring for their cats! Thanks CCC for giving me the coolest cat ever!!

I first learned about Cozy Cat Cottage when I was an employee at Petco, who works with CCC to promote adoption of homeless cats. I enjoyed talking with the kind volunteers and noticed how dedicated they were to making sure that all of their cars were healthy and happy. I became a volunteer myself and was impressed with the size and quality of their facility in Powell. It was clean, spacious, and filled with cat furniture, toys, large food dispensers, water fountains, (litter boxes of course), and special areas for quarantine of sick cats. From my experience, Cozy Cat Cottage provides a loving, safe place for these beautiful animals, that fulfills their physical, emotional, mental, and social needs. Every volunteer I have interacted with has shown dedication and love for animals.

Cozy Cat Cottage is an amazing place. I have volunteered at CCC for 14years and have seen such kindness. Every cat and kitten is loved, care for and their health is constantly monitored. CCC works in our community to educate children about pet overpopulation and the need to Spay/Neuter to slow the cycle

Cozy Cat Cottage is the best!!!!!!!!

We adopted Jaxon (now Wedo Luigi) a little over three years ago, and are so thankful that he's part of our family. We have four dogs, and you can usually find him snuggled with his best friend, our deaf 12 year old staffordshire terrier.

It is a great place to volunteer and for finding awesome cats to adopt. I have adopted two kitties from Cozy Cat and they are absolutely wonderful. The low cost medical clinics and spay/neuter services are a great benefit to the community.

I adopted the sweetest cat I've ever met - and I've met plenty - who's sleeping on my arm right now. I've sent and helped pick out 3 others. All cats are happy and come well taken care of. No ear mites, unlike the poor shelters. God bless for what they do so well!

I adopted my girl Gemma from them a year ago. Sheila the sweetest Cat I have ever owned. I have known about Cozy Cats for many years. I know that the owner does anything she can to ensure the safety health and unconditional love to every animal and human she encounters. If Cozy Cats rescues an animal we can all breath easier because the animal is in good hands. I will always support Cozy Cats.

I found a young cat curled up under a van last night. I couldn't just leave the poor thing, since it was going to be in the low twenties that night. I got out of my car and called to the cat, amazingly, it came right out and over to me, eager for love. My mom had volunteered for Cozy Cat in the past, so i reached out to them for help. Right away, someone responded with ideas for where to post about the cat to try to find an owner. They also recommended that I take the cat to the vet to have it checked for a tag. Unfortunately, there was no tag, and the cat was so dirty that i am convinced that it hasn't had a home in a long while. I'm so glad to know that there is an organization so willing and happy to help any and all cats in need.

I have adopted two kitties of my own from CCC and my family has also adopted two. We love them so much. The workers couldn't be nicer. I take the kids I babysit in to visit with the cats and they are more than welcoming. I swear the cats there are sweeter than any others. We adopted our first cat 10 years ago and our last one just 6 months ago, then with two in between those years. So we are definitely returning for a reason!

I love to visit CCC. The cats all seem to be really happy. I love the scratching posts and beds they have. The litter boxes are always kept clean. Unlike other facilities I have visited there is no bad smell. I recommend them to anyone that is looking for an addition to their home.

I've adopted 2 kitties from cozy cat cottage. The people are lovely. The cats are healthy, and the facility was clean. I refused to adopt a cat from another nearby shelter because their cats are always sick and their facility is always gross and unclean. I always suggest CCC to anyone looking for a new pet. Thanks Cindy!

I adopted Zazzie a couple of years ago and I fell in love instantly I was told that she was going to be killed since she was born with a sinus infection so Cozy Cat stepped in and saved her. Zazzie has no health issues since I adopted her and I'm so lucky that they saved her and I get to call her mine evwryday.

I volunteered at Cozy Cat Cottage for several years. The dedication, caring and love showered upon these kitty cats is heart-warming. While they wait for their forever homes they are warm, safe, dry, full tummies and lots of playmates. Thank you CCC for all you do!

Cozy Cat is the best cat shelter I have ever been to! I started volunteering there when I was 14 and continued until I left the area. I still visit regularly when I am at home! Not only does Cozy Cat give the best medical care to its potential adoptees, it reaches out to the community at large with its spay-neuter program for local cat owners and ferals.

My darling Pepe was a Cozy Catter, and so is one of our current cats, Miss Zoe. And it's thanks to Cozy Cat that both wonderful felines entered our lives!
