Petline9: Kittens Butch and Sundance, plus Painted Cat Edwina Degas, hang out with Kathy Sabine and Suellen Scott
Butch and Sundance are 12 weeks old and were found back in late May alone in an alley. They are now 12 weeks old and up for adoption as a pair. They are neutered, tested negative for disease, vaccinated for distemper and upper respiratory infection. They are litter box trained, micro chipped, and very lively, playful and full of purrs.
Edwina will be raffled at the TAILS OF THE PAINTED CATS GALA on Saturday July 26th at the Pinehurst Country Cub. Raffle tickets are $10 each. Cat Care Society has lots of kittens and cats looking for their forever homes, 6th Ave. and Sheridan in Lakewood.

July 31-Aug 10: the Amazing Clicker-Trained Acro-Cats are back in Denver raising funds for Cat Care Society
Visit: www.circuscats.com or http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/69429 - these are clicker-trained cats.
The one-hour show features over a dozen fabulous felines (former orphans, rescues, and strays) walking tightropes, pushing carts, skateboarding, jumping through hoops, ringing bells, balancing on balls and turning on lights. Alley, our newest addition to the troupe, will be sure to delight and amaze you with her energy and ability. But wait there’s more! Tuna, the star of the show, is the leader of the ONLY CAT BAND IN EXISTENCE – the Rock Cats. With Oz on guitar, Dakota on drums, Nue on keyboards, and Sookie on chimes - Tuna (who plays cowbell) and her band really steal the show with their own style of original music. There is even a chicken, Cluck Norris, on cymbal and tambourine!
Samantha Martin, Chief Executive Human (or CEH for short) for the Amazing Acro-Cats, challenges the idea that “cats can’t be trained.” Tuna and the gang are real house cats who have learned all their skills through something called clicker training. The shows include a demonstration of a cat learning some basic tricks using this method that focuses on positive reinforcement only. Although she has studied and worked with many species, today Martin’s primary focus is on cats. Training builds richer and more meaningful relationships between animals and humans and it can save time and lives in emergencies. A lifelong fascination and unique bond with animals motivated Martin to study and earn her degree in animal husbandry and behavioral sciences.
As in past year's when the Acro-Cats came to Denver, a portion of ticket sales will be donated to Cat Care Society based out of Lakewood, CO - http://www.catcaresociety.org!. Martin advocates adoption from these types of organizations. Over the past four years, Martin has also purr-sonally found homes for over 140 cats and kittens and continues to take fosters on the road and help them find their furr-ever homes.
