Eloise's and her family have adopted several cats from Casey's House and young Eloise loves to write about them all. Goliath, their first Casey's House cat was featured in Eloise's first book which I also highly recommend. Her current book "Queen of Day, Queen of Night" is the story of the life and death of her beloved Mrs. Gaines. Truly an act of love from an exceptional child! I highly recommend it for cat lovers of all ages! Her release can be found below. A link can also be found on our website on our new "Best Reading" page.
Whiston Spirn Publications is proud to announce the launch of Eloise
latest book, Queen of Day, Queen of Night: The History of Mrs. Gaines, in time
for Christmas. Eagerly awaited by all fans of the author's first book (Meet Our
Cats, Blurb 2008), the sequel features the extraordinary cat and Queen, Mrs.
Gaines. This story of life and death, of mousy adventures and successors to the
throne, chronicles the life of Mrs. Gaines and sets the scene for future volumes
in the series. A tribute to Mrs. Gaines and a product of the love she
engendered, this heart-warming book will appeal to cat lovers of all ages and to
anyone whose heart can be moved by the inspiring story of this beloved pet.
It's a book release, and you're invited -- check out my new book at Blurb:

Dear Friend of Casey’s House,
As I write this final newsletter for the year 2009 I am thinking about all that has transpired over this past year.
We have continued, with great success, our low cost spay/neuter program. This year, to date, we have provided spay/neuter services to 198 cats with another 25 scheduled for a December run! I wish to thank the wonderful staff at the Shenandoah Spay Neuter Clinic, without this wonderful facility our low cost spay/neuter program would not be possible.
Because of current economic events and the subsequent loss of homes for many cats our sanctuary facilities have been stretched to the limit. We are happy to announce that we have partnered with Darcy Swope to provide much needed space for these cats.
With our increased population our needs have also increased and your support is needed more than ever. You can support Casey’s House in a variety of ways:
We look forward to the upcoming year and know with help from our wonderful supporters that we will be able to continue our low cost spay/neuter program and to provide sanctuary for many of the old and hard to adopt cats in our region.
Together we can make this world a better place for all our feline friends! Thank-you for your support!

Dear Friend of Casey's House,
I am excited to say that we are really rolling on our spay/neuter runs click here to make a donation to help keep us rolling! We had 19 cats spayed/neutered this past Tuesday and we already have our next run full! If you need a spot please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org right away, we can always schedule an extra run!
There is a new link on our website www.caseyshouse.org to the 10 Top 10 Lists For Cat Lovers, this is a wonderful resource for cat lovers, it can help you find just about anything you need to know about your feline companion! It a good book for you and as a present for your fellow cat lover as well! Did I mention that the holidays are just around the corner?
We are still working on a aluminum can drive. We feel this would be a good way to not only help raise funds for Casey's House but also help the environment! We will be visiting the recycling plant soon to see what exactly would be involved so stay tuned!
Please remember that you can donate to Casey's House via the United Way! Our CFC number is 86714!
Thanks for your Support, together we end the sad consequences of the cat over-population problem!

Dear Friend of Casey's House,
I am pleased to say that despite a cold Autumn day we had a wonderful Blessing of the Animals day. Father Michael blessed close to 30 animals, including a goat! Our rabies clinic provided protection for 14 dogs and cats thanks to the Dr Frank of Vettrek House Practice and her assistant Mia coming out on a cold windy Saturday!
Please visit our website at www.caseyshouse.org as I have recently updated it. There is now a link to explain who Casey was. (People keep calling me "Casey" assuming that I named the organization after myself!) There is also a link to Buckley's Story a new book recently published, authored by Ingrid King. I highly recommend it, it is the story of a cat that Ingrid adopted from Casey's House that like Casey, changed a woman's life.
As always, we appreciate your support and please do not forget to send pictures of your cats as we will be working on a Casey's House calendar soon! To donate to our sanctuary or spay/neuter efforts please click here. I know that times are tight but please be assured that your donation, no matter the size, will make a difference in a cat's life!

As 2008 comes to an end and 2009 begins I want to take moment to thank you for your support, together we have accomplished much! We close the year with 70 adoptions; several feral colonies properly spayed/neutered, vaccinated, and maintained with food-water-shelter; and our first spay/neuter run for 2009 almost booked! (we have 1, possibly two spaces left so send me a line if you need a space!) This coming Spring we will be sponsoring a TNR workshop so though 2009 has not quite begun, we are already rolling!
If you have not yet made your tax deductible gift to Casey's House you can still do so via paypal at http://caseyshouse.org/donation page.html, any gift made before midnight tonight is tax deductible for 2008!
Thanks to a generous donation made by the Skeen Family Foundation we will be able to once again sponsor spay/neuter for feral cats, we will ask for some contribution in order to maintain our funding as long as possible but no cat will be turned away (for as long as the funding lasts) so keep an eye out for cats in your neighborhood, we are happy to lend out traps!
Thanks again for a great year and I look forward to working with you for the good of the cats in 2009!

December 3, 2008 Dear Friend of Casey’s House,
We are coming to the close of another year. I am pleased to say that our first year running a spay/neuter program has been a resounding success! We have spayed and neuter a little over 200 cats this year and we are still going strong. Eight are scheduled for this week and our next run is in the process of being booked too! We need your help to continue this important work!
With our first year of spay/neuter programs has come a great deal of learning for us. It is for this reason that we have made some changes to our program. We have new age and weight limits for our spay/neuter program: males must be at least 10 weeks and 2.5 pounds and females must be at least 3 months and 3.5 pounds. These restrictions will be strictly adhered to for the safety of our cats.
Our sanctuary cats are doing well but we maintain a full house and sadly have to often turn cats away for lack of space. We need more people willing to foster older cats and people with acreage willing to be caretakers for feral cats. Casey’s House pays for all vet costs for both of these programs. Please call the number noted above or send Cindy an email if you are interested in helping cats in this way!
We have accomplished much but much still needs to be done! A donation form and return envelope are enclosed; any donation no matter the size would help us care for these wonderful cats! Tractor Supply in Leesburg has agreed to allow us to put a donation box in their store, donations can be dropped off during store hours. (On or about Dec 12 will we be putting a donation box in the Winchester store as well!) Our wish list is on the box and all of the items can be purchased at Tractor Supply if you so choose. You can also support Casey’s House in a very fun way; Santa will be at the Leesburg PETCO Dec 6 and Dec 13 for photos with your pets! All proceeds will benefit Casey’s House, as does their "tree of hope".
We wish you and your family very happy holidays and as always, a warm and grateful meow from all the cats at Casey’s House! Sincerely, Cindy Ingram Founder Casey's House, Inc. P.S. We are always looking for volunteers to work at the shelter! Please call Cindy at 703-220-9965 if you are interested in volunteering!
