Cats in heat can try the patience of even the most loving pet owner.

Like many other businesses, Napa Humane temporarily suspended operations when the first Shelter in Place order came down in March 2020. Though legally we could have stayed open, we felt that closing was the right thing to do because of the shortage of PPE and intubation-related drugs at the time. We felt we shouldn’t continueKeep Reading

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. We resumed surgeries for the shelter and local rescue groups in mid-May (and for the public in June), but just those few short months without our low-cost spay/neuter services resultedKeep Reading

Running a business under normal circumstances is never easy.

All-New Caturdays Help Us Get a Jump On Kitten Season
by Lisa Alexander | February 25th, 2020 | 1:35 pm
Have you been loving the recent spring weather? Our local un-spayed cats have, and many of them are already in heat! Since rising temperatures are the cue, an early spring means early kitten season, too. Once they’re in heat, female cats continue to go into heat until they get pregnant – or spayed.

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
