Shikee's Story

I adopted Shikee from the Humane Society of Utah on March 1st, 2007. She was about four years old at the time. The most striking thing about her was not the fact that she was missing an eye, or that she was a unusual breed... it was her very sweet and unique "meowrf". Shikee is indeed a very vocal cat, and communicates very well! She has been nothing but a sweetheart, and even has earned the nickname of "Sweet Sheeks"...

Cat nurses four abandoned newborn puppies

The Humane Society of Utah received four abandoned puppies who are nursing from a surrogate mother cat

A woman found a box on her car containing four newborn puppies April 21, 2015, in West Valley City. The puppies were quickly brought to the Humane Society of Utah at 3:30 p.m. where receiving department staff decided to put them with a surrogate cat mother to try and save their lives. Previously the same day, two cats were surrendered to the shelter: Kat, a pregnant brown tabby and Kit, a brown tabby who had recently nursed her own kittens and was still lactating.
