No More Homeless Babies -- Spay and Neuter Emergency!

Money is tight at the moment, and BCC's FRAC needs contributions toward neutering our current crop of kittens! There are only 25, and donations of even $5 would be enormously helpful and appreciated. Please visit our page at to donate, and thanks!

Meaningful Gift Ideas for People Who Have Everything

Wouldn't it be great if every gift you bought this season could affect someone beyond its recipient in a positive way? Nutmeg Spay/Neuter Clinic has two options that will delight your loved ones and allow you to support a service that's crucial to the well-being of Connecticut's cats and dogs.

1. Make a wine lover happy with a lovely bottle (or gift pack) of's organic wines, with a percentage of the proceeds donated to Nutmeg's FeralCare, Inc. Learn more and order here!

2. Buy lights in honor of a loved one's living or deceased pet now through January 1! At only $5 per light, the Nutmeg Spay/Neuter Clinic's Annual Memorial Tree is a beautiful way to remember the animals that mean and have meant so much to us -- and to give to animals now and in the future. There's still time to attend the tree-lighting tonight, from 5 - 7 at 25 Charles St. in Stratford!

March Cat of the Month: Gunner!

Ring in St. Patrick's Day with a new friend who's WAY cuter than a leprechaun (sorry, leprechauns)!

Today, we'd like to focus some attention on a full-grown guy who's been with us for awhile, and is hoping to find his forever home ASAP!


Murphy is a very regal and distinguished gentleman with dramatic gold and black stripes and white markings. He's strikingly handsome, but aloof with people he doesn't know well. Such an independent character doesn't give his heart away to just anyone; once he gets to know you, however, he'll play, permit an ear rub (loves that!), and come when you call his name. Murphy isn't comfortable with being picked up, but petting from members of his inner circle is just fine, as well as a game chasing laser lights or anything with feathers or string. Murphy also loves simply lying in a sunny window and watching the world go by. After a vigorous play session, he'll find a secret place for a cozy nap. 

A family with kids isn't for Murphy, but in his foster home, he learned to get along with other cats, and even dogs. Someone who recognizes a diamond in the rough and has the patience to help it shine would be a great match for Murphy, but it's also important to realize that he may be as close to a “finished product” as he's going to get. 

The ideal human for Murphy would be one who enjoys witnessing a cat just being a cat -- playing, purring, chilling -- but isn't looking for an extreme cuddler. If the idea of sharing your home with a gorgeous guy who'll give you your space, yet still let you know he's there sounds about right, come on in and meet Murphy!
