CRAN Cat Stats – March 2023
Kitten Shower 2023
Kitten season is starting despite the fact that it doesn’t feel like Spring yet. CRAN has taken in 20 kittens so far this month and we are getting requests for help daily.
CRAN is having its annual Kitten Shower to help prepare for all of the kittens that will be soon coming into our program. It’s an easy and great way to help. Simply go to our registry at: https://www.amazon.com/baby-reg/cran-catrescueandadoptionnetwork-august-2023-springfield/1AMBHYNSNT497 You can then purchase supplies to help us care for the kittens and Amazon will send them to us. Thank you to everyone who has already purchased items from the shower. We could not do what we do without you!

74 Cats and kittens found their forever homes in March! Thank you to their adopters for providing them with loving homes and to all of our volunteers, partners and donors who made this possible.
Volunteer of the Month – March 2023
Sonya and her family have been CRAN foster parents since the beginning of 2020. They have fostered skittery kittens, sick kittens, and bouncy kittens. When asked what brought her and her family to CRAN, “We were looking to adopt two kitties, when a former foster parent recommended fostering with CRAN first to make sure the kitties were a good fit for our house and kiddo. We initially thought we would just foster until we adopted two kitties, but we loved helping them so much that we kept fostering after we adopted our two and now have three of our own. We have welcomed over 30 fosters into our home over the past three years.” When asked what she enjoys the most, “I enjoy socializing the shy and spicy kitties the most. It can take awhile to win over their affection, but once we do, they typically turn into the biggest cuddle bugs. It is rewarding to see them transform and learn that humans can give them love and affection. Caring for the fur babies is definitely a team effort in our house with all chipping in to take care of our furry guests. Their antics and unique personalities have brought so much joy, silliness and love into our home.”
A huge thank you to Sonya and her family for all they do to for CRAN and the cats!
CRAN Cat Stats – February 2023
Volunteer of the Month – February 2023
Edward Arnold has been selected as the February 2023 CRAN Volunteer of the Month!
Edward joined CRAN in April 2021 as a cat care volunteer at TLC. Since that time, he also became a foster parent to CRAN kitties, and then a CRAN adopter. Edward has continued volunteering at TLC, never missing a shift, and provides care and plenty of love for the kitties currently at TLC
From Edward: “Caring for the kitties at TLC is my favorite part of the week. Some of the critters are real characters, and have me rolling on the floor laughing at their antics. I had five kittens climbing up my pant leg at once, last time I was in the ringworm room! I love it when I can make a real emotional connection with our fuzzies.
My previous cat was with me for fourteen years, and I was devastated when I lost him to cancer in August of 2020. My sister suggested volunteering at CRAN, as a way to get my critter fix. Now, I am a pet parent to Spanky and Luna (pictured in the post). It is amazing to me that our rescues also rescue us.”
From all of us, thank you so much for all you do for our CRAN kitties, and for being a terrific human being Edward!
