With one game in the books, the change of season has officially moved to Husker football season, the best time of year in Nebraska! Did you know, studies show that petting a purring cat lowers your blood pressure and lessens stress? Cat owners have a 40 percent lower risk of heart attacks, which can be very helpful during high-pressure games. Cats are excellent companions for watching your favorite team, and The Cat House has plenty of skilled feline lap dwellers ready to join your home team.

Visit the shelter at 3633 O St. on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6-8 p.m. or on Sundays from 1:30-4 p.m., and ask the team of volunteers to help you find the right match. Cat House volunteers can introduce you to the variety of cats and kittens available for adoption. With so many different kitty personalities, they will help you find the right fit for your family.

Catnip sticks, available in two sizes, as well as pet beds, carrier liners and many other hand-crafted items are available for purchase during open hours also, so don't forget to check out the retail area downstairs.
