Here’s more info about this month’s organizations.
Since opening in January 2012, the number of adoptable cats euthanized in the 3 cities they serve has dropped from between 400-700 to ZERO!
More words from the good folks at CATS Cradle themselves:
Our mission is to create a more humane and compassionate world one cat at a time. We rescue, care for, protect, and place cats for adoption in loving lifelong homes, and work to prevent abuse, neglect and cruelty to animals by educating the citizens of our community in the proper and humane care of not only cats, but all animals.
CATS Cradle Shelter goes above and beyond the call of duty by rescuing, giving medical attention and finding homes for abused, neglected and abandoned cats who need a second chance, including the world renowned “Corky the Cradle Cat” who was born with backwards legs and had a painful life until being rescued by CCS.
If you are interested in adopting one of our fabulous felines, visit us for one of our open houses, call 701-356-PURR for an appointment or fill out an adoption application. Once your application is reviewed, you have completed the interview process and have proof of pets allowed in lease, you will be able to bring your new companion home.
CATS Cradle is run solely on donations with no city, state, or federal funding. If you would like to donate, check out the many ways you can do that here.

Every Shelter of the Month receives
a 32 oz. bottle of Stress Stopper.
Stress Stopper is formulated for all animals, not just cats. It helps animals feel grounded and protected, which makes it great for the occasional, short-duration stresses that an animal faces: trips to the vet, thunder and lightning, fireworks, parties, vacuum cleaner, lawnmower, machinery, visitors and house guests, vacations (if the animal is boarded or has a pet-sitter), unusual noises (remodeling, construction, roadwork, etc.), arguments with other animals, repairpersons. It is also good for animals who are left home alone all day, to prevent boredom and stress.
As you can see, Stress Stopper is an all-around remedy, which has made it one of the best-selling remedies in the Spirit Essences line.
As a shelter volunteer, Joan Laisney saw scratch marks on cage walls and shelving by shelter cats’ attempts to perform natural behaviors: stretching their muscles, scratching to clean their nails and scent mark with paws.
After months of testing, Joan designed a scratcher for caged cats that is sturdy, easy to install and affordable in a tight economy.

The Sunny Seat installs in seconds to glass windows and doors and features industrial strength suction cups that hold up to an amazing 50 pounds! They help give cats a getaway/hideaway above the floor traffic, which is especially useful in multi-cat or multi-animal households.
Our Shelter of the Month gets four of these great cat shelves! Thank you Sunny Seat!
We regret that Jackson does not answer questions posted in the comments. This is due to his demanding schedule and the high volume of requests he receives. But most importantly, since he has not met your cat, it would be contrary to his approach for him to give specific personalized advice for your specific situation. That being said, general questions and issues are addressed throughout this blog, in his book CAT DADDY and of course, the show My Cat From Hell.
