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.

Where do I begin.... Guess at the beginning...My Blackie Brunswick was 14 years old when he passed to the rainbow bridge.. He was sick most of his like with us... The day came when he was gone... I wanted to get another kitty because i missed Blackie so much. but my hubby was stll heartbroken...So we waited a year.. I started to look at rescues, and decided Cozy Cat Cottage was the right one for me.. I would go in every two weeks, can visit kitties.. The staff and medical team were so very nice to me.. One week I went in, and was ready for a kitten.. I had 4 black kittens in my arms, and Amy added 1 more... This kitten was it. He crawled over the others, and said I am yours... I adopted him, and we went home.. The next day he got sick.. Cindi the director said to come in and she would meet me..Turned out he had a stomach bug. Cindi decided to keep him and get him well... He needed to stay for 10 days of meds... Each day the medical team would give me and update.. They were all so kind and caring. Finally he got to come home.. He has been with us for 6 years.Knowing how caring Cozy Cat Cottage is I decided to volunteer there.. I have been with them for over 5 years now.. It has been a very wonderful experience. They will do whatever they can to help, and save kitties.I feel so lucky to be part of this great rescue..

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...

Awesome organization with a cat's best interest in mind always. None are ever turned away, the various volunteers, knowledge and experience of all and medical staff of course all combine to form the best decisions and ideas. Often a cat will arrive that is not good with people and scared, but the patience, love and acceptance of all the workers and volunteers at CCC gives them a second chance, if not third, forth, etc. Constant resources are utilized, heads joined to make decisions, great communication within. It is truly a wonderful place for all types of cats due to the many "cat whisperers" at CCC!

When we moved to Ohio about 20 years ago, I had two cats. When one of them passed away I looked for somewhere to get a kitten. I found Cozy Cat and went there and found my Callie Girl. She was beautiful and healthy and we took her home 12 years ago.

When you enter Cozy Cat you will not find any bad smells like I had in New York. The place is very clean and the cats are taken care of with a lot of love.

We wanted another cat a couple years ago and we went back and found Lucy.

I would never go anywhere else for my adoptions because Cozy Cat will not kill any cats, they will take care of them and love them until they find their forever home!!!!!

I had a great experience with Cozy Cat Cottage! I adopted my cat Ted from CCC. Cozy Cat maintains a clean, welcoming facility and provides top-notch vet care. My adoption process was so easy and smooth (and as a responsible rescue, they did an appropriate job of evaluating me to make sure the cat I was adopting was going to a good home). The adoption fee was an absolute steal for the fully vetted, neutered, and microchipped kitty I got in return! The volunteers and staff are wonderful and truly care about the cats and help socialize them while they are waiting for their forever homes. They even called me about a month after the adoption to ensure he was adjusting well to his new home. Cozy Cat performs such an important function in our community by rescuing cats, promoting spay/neuter to reduce overpopulation, and educating the public on animal welfare issues. I am so thankful to Cozy Cat every day because they gave me the best cat I've ever had! My cat Ted was healthy, friendly, & full of personality since the day I brought him home, and I am so grateful for everyone involved with CCC! Cozy Cat Cottage not only saves cats, but they change the lives of people who adopt them, too!

My name is Paul Mihalik, and I am a certified cat trainer through Animal Behavior College. I first found out about Cozy Cat Cottage because I needed 20 hours as an intern to complete my certification. I chose CCC because of how clean and professionally run they were. They have on-site vet techs who are very proactive, and an impressive set of procedures for animal care.

Even after my internship was completed, I continue to volunteer at CCC because of the love and dedication I see that they have for all the animals in their care, no matter how chronically ill or what challenges a cat might have, they are never put down. Instead they work hard to make sure every animal is well treated and can live as full of a life as possible. I’ve gained a lot both personally and professionally through my association with Cozy Cat Cottage, and I’m proud to be a volunteer there.

We adopted 2 cats here in 2019: one adult and one kitten. The cats were well cared-for and had plenty of space to roam at CCC. Unlike other rescues we visited which were smelly and overcrowded, CCC was well-run and calm. They had biographical info on all of the cats and made sure they had vet checks, microchips and shots and spay/neuter before adoption. They also called us about a week after we adopted to check in and make sure we had scheduled well-cat visits at a vet. Great care for the kitties!

This rescue truly cares! I found a pregnant cat in an alley and in need of deep affection. I thought I would be able to take her in, and when she had her kittens, find them all homes no problem. Well, I found homes for 3 of the 5 kittens and still had two and momma. We are not allowed to have cats, so we needed help fast, and Cozy Cat Cottage brought them in to their rescue and found them all homes. I am able to see daily rescues and adoptions on their FB page and constantly see a group of individuals who actually put their heart and soul into what they do!

I've adopted two cats from Cozy Cat Cottage, one in 2012 and one in 2020. In both cases, these are delightful, social, very healthy cats. The organization as a whole takes the health of their cats very seriously. We had a delay with the first one because he got ringworm the day before we were to pick him up. He stayed with CCC an additional three weeks for his ringworm to clear before we could take him home. The second cat is a staff favorite for his darling personality. I feel honored we now share our home with them both.

We adopted a cat from Cozy Cat in fall of 2019. The adoption center was clean, the staff was so nice, and we were able to hold and meet a few cats before finally finding one who wouldn’t stop purring or let go! We brought home Fiddler (then Sunny) and he has been the best addition to our family. When we adopted him, he had a hernia and they were quick to repair it and took great care of him! He recovered very quickly and has never had any health issues since! I highly recommend Cozy Cat!

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 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!

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.

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 came here the first time to adopt my cat. I took her home but couldn't stay away. Everyone was so kind and the cats receive excellent care. I know donate when I can and volunteer weekly or more. The facility is clean and the cats are happy, loved, and get any and all medical care they need. There is no other place like it!

Such a great organization that always goes out of their way to help a cat in need. The facility and volunteers are wonderful. If all organizations were handled like this one then no animal would ever need to be harmed. They truly care
