About The Cattery
The Cattery began in early 2007 as a dream discussed over dinner. Several exhausting months later, the dream blossomed into reality. We had an amazing first year, with over 100 adoptions and a lot of support from the community in the form of volunteers (over 100!), donations, print and media coverage, boutique sales, a full boarding area, and successful fundraisers.
However at the end of 2008, we realized that it was unrealistic in this economy to continue paying the rent we were being charged for our location. Supporters wanted to buy us a building but unfortunately we did not find one in time for a seamless transition. The kitties were kept safe in a building on a supporters land outside of the city limits and were taken to Petsmart Saturday - Wednesday for adoption, while looking for a new suitable home for our feline friends. While it seemed like a bad start to the year, the number of adoptions doubled and we ended 2009 with 231 adoptions! We found a new home for the kitties in April and by August the kitties were all moved in and settled into their new shelter.
Things continue to go well with donations up and the building of new quarantine and isolation buildings. We are able to continue our work for the cats and kittens of Corpus Christi because of generous sponsors and supporters!
The Cattery offers an alternative to traditional animal shelters in providing a no-kill, cage-free haven for homeless, abused, or abandoned cats. From there, we seek permanent, loving homes for these animals. In addition, our organization promotes public awareness regarding the value of animals and their welfare, the dangers of pet overpopulation, and the benefit of quality human-animal companionship.

We also do adoptions at Petsmart on SPID 7 days a week. Monday - Friday, Petsmart personnel will guide you through the beginning of the adoption process.

Shelter staff will be on site Saturday and Sunday from 11am-5pm.
The Cattery employs a small staff that are dedicated to the welfare of our cats. A phone line and staff to answer the phone is cost prohibitive at this time. We have an extensive voicemail system that answers most questions that callers have. If you need to talk to a person, please leave a message under the appropriate mail box and a staff member or volunteer will get back with you at our earliest convenience.
