Cammie and Sammie were adopted out of the ICS when they were just kittens. They were recently returned when their owner passed away. The family member that was supposed to take them did not want them. Another family member thought he could get them a home in his over 500 member congregation but no one from there wanted them either. Cammie isnt handling shelter life very well. She is not eating, losing weight, overgrooming and pulling her fur out in clumps. Sammie, on the other hand, is eating too much and not being active and putting on weight that isnt good for him. These two wonderful cats are only 6 years old and front declawed. They are very sweet and affectionate. Wont you help us show them they truly are wanted by someone???




From now until December 24th we will be collecting new cat toys for our shelter cats and kittens. You can help each cat or kitten get a new toy for Christmas by donating a new toy to the ICS before December 24th. Toys can be dropped off during our adoption hours of Saturdays 10am to 4pm, Sundays 1pm to 4pm, special adoption hours Dec. 17th and 19th of 4pm to 6pm. Or call our shelter for other arrangements. More than anything our kitties would love a home of their very own for Christmas, but if you cant adopt, please donate a toy or two and help make their Christmas a little brighter.

The Independent Cat Society will hold its annual Holiday Open House at the ICS Shelter located on Route 6 and County Line Road in Westville on Saturday, December 13th from 10am to 4pm and Sunday, December 14th, from 1pm to 4pm. We will have home grown catnip, cat nip toys and many other cat related items for sale as well as gift for others on your Christmas list. There will also be raffles and we will have home baked goodies for sale. While you are shopping, enjoy some refreshments and be sure to ask about our December Adoption promotion. We have many beautiful cats and kittens who would love to have a home and family of their very own for the holidays. So be sure to check them out while you are there. For more information contact the ICS at 219-785-4936. All proceeds from this event benefit the Independent Cat Society, so please help us to continue to care and feed the many homeless cats and kittens in the area.
