There is no doubt about it; kittens are cute. Last Saturday, New Hope for Eastern Oregon Animals hosted a lot of cute when it publicly debuted its new feline shelter, better known as, “The Catty Shack”. Located at the home of known animal advocate, Karen Skeen, locals streamed in during the open house to see first-hand the brightly colored, climate-controlled, safe environment that 12 kittens and five cats currently call home. “We initially had an area over at the Leo Brookshire building, but we had no electricity and other amenities needed to keep them there, particularly as it got colder,” said Skeen As luck would have it, Skeen was checking out a garage sale and happened upon a supply shed that someone no longer needed. “I knew right away I had to have it.” The original building sported many of the same festive colors that today give it a signature look. Following a few modifications that included outdoor access to a safe kennel, climbing appara tus, lots of kitty beds, the The Catty Shack was open for business. To date, the more than 150 cats and kittens have spent time there waiting to be adopted. Recently, 15 kittens brought to Skeen were transported to the Oregon Humane Society for adoption. Within two days, six had already found homes. Many of these kittens had been waiting for homes in the local area for two months. Skeen shared that they work closely with the Oregon Humane Society, who has an extensive network in the metropolitan area where adoption demand it high. ‘We don’t euthanize so we have to work very hard with all our partners to get these little ones a home. “Our.numbers in town. (Baker City) have been showing a decline, but our rural numbers have really climbed up there,” said Skeen. “We can’t stress enough to everyone who has a cat how important it is to spay and neuter them.” New Hope for Eastern Oregon Animals is a volunteer, non-profit organization. If you are interested in adopting a cat or kitten, you are encour aged to call New Hope at (541) 403-2710 or Karen Skeen at 541- 523-6863. There is an adoption fee of $35 which includes the feline’s first shots, worming and the cost of spay or neuter.
