Catch-Up Caturday

Categories: Cats, Clinic

The coronavirus pandemic forced Napa Humane’s spay/neuter Clinic to “paws” operations temporarily in March this year, just as cats were starting to go into heat.

Found Kittens? Know When (and When NOT) to Help

Categories: Cats

Most people assume that unattended kittens need help, but often, their diligent mother is just momentarily out of sight.

All-New Caturdays Help Us Get a Jump On Kitten Season

Categories: Cats, Clinic

Have you been loving the recent spring weather? Our local un-spayed cats have, and many of them are already in heat!

Categories: Cats, Clinic, Dogs, Volunteer

Summer isn’t all fun and games for pets without access to regular veterinary care.

At our June 23 Wellness Clinic, we helped 105 four-legged patients get back on the road to health and signedKeep Reading

Why Spay/Neuter? Cinnamon.

Categories: Cats, Clinic

Picture a fluffy, adorable kitten with calico markings and bright green eyes: this is Cinnamon. Cinnamon was found outside, hungry and alone when she was about three months old. Her rescuer, luckily, had a co-worker who couldn’t resist an impossibly cute (and free) ball of fur, and Cinnamon began a new life as an outdoorKeep Reading
