Slippers the Bashful Cat

by Chelle

Slippers is currently one of our longest term residents. When cat room adoptions went gangbusters, she was one of two cats left. It’s sad, really. Those two cats are both lovely creatures, they’re just having a hard time making it out if the shelter.

Slippers biggest hurdle seems to be her anxiety when the cat adoption room becomes busy. Reaching, poking, and prodding hands are a bit scary to a small, shy cat. However, when the adoption room is calm and quiet, she gains the confidence to come out and shine. She will climb on laps, head butt, purr, snuggle, and give those oh so sweet kitty kisses (blinks).

I would be grand if we had the space to have a quiet, controlled place for our more shy residents to shine for visitors. Instead, people just have to rely on the reports of the volunteers who are able to spend time with the cats in various situations.

Slippers would make a grand and loving addition to a calm, loving home with humans who allow her to come to them, vs making a grab for her. She will come to them. She wants to be loved. She just needs to know she’s safe.

Welcome to Clatsop Animal Assistance. We are located in Warrenton Oregon (just outside of Astoria). Clatsop Animal Assistance, Inc. (CAA) is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting and providing for the needs of the Clatsop County Animal Shelter’s homeless pets. CAA volunteers work hard to improve the quality of life for these animals, most directly by assisting the Animal Shelter, which has limited resources with which to deal with strays and unwanted pets within Clatsop County.

  • CAA pays for veterinary care as well as antibiotics and other critical medicines that aren’t covered in the shelter’s budget.  CAA also pays a portion of the spay/neuter fees for animals adopted out of the shelter.
  • CAA purchases cat litter and other supplies, and pays for grooming costs not covered by the shelter’s budget.
  • CAA supports the shelter’s adoption program, sponsoring promotional ads and holding adoption events.
  • CAA maintains an adoption booth at Astoria’s Sunday Market every other week from May through part of September every year.
  • CAA is committed to reducing pet overpopulation: we support spay/neuter programs financially and work to educate the public on the importance of spaying or neutering their pets.
