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.
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!
Cozy Cat Cottage is the best. We have adopted 4 kitties from them. They were all so healthy and well cared for. The passion they have for saving lives and giving the cats a safe and loving environment to live in until they find their forever home shines through.
Cozy Cat Cottage is an amazing organization that saves and rehomes street cats. They are clean, well organized and caring. Cozy Cat Cottage is a no kill shelter. Staff, volunteers and supporters work to keep this shelter a healthy and happy environment for the cats. I have adopted several myself!
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.
