Cats on Commerce is all about:  

  1. At The Cats on Commerce, our desire to provide the highest quality of care for your cat was born out of a love for these unique creatures and their special needs.  
  2. We firmly believe in the absolute need for a gentle touch and fundamental understanding of their unique body language, medical, and behavioral problems.
  3. Our goal is to assist cat owners* in providing an excellent, affordable quality of life for their feline companions, through education, medical services, financing and pet health insurance options.
  4. At the Mews Inn and Spa, our exclusive, custom-designed and built-for-felines boarding facility, we offer daily and long-term accommodations.
  5. We are located across the road from the Clarksville Police Station, immediately adjacent to the pedestrian walking bridge that crosses Commerce Street.  Parking is available on the left (east) side of the building.

*Although our focus is nearly 100 % feline patients, we will will also see the following small exotic animals: Rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters and ferrets.  These pets, like cats, also require a quiet, stress-free environment.  Note:  The above about section is taken directly from Cats on Commerce webpage.

You can follow them on Twitter   or Like them on Facebook or visit their webpage Cats on Commerce to find out what they are all about.

GO ROSSVIEW SPANISH HONOR SOCIETY

A great group of young adults doing wonderful things!

We don’t always hear about the good things teenagers do today.  So it is our pleasure to honor the Rossview Spanish Honor Society, a group of about 30 young adults, who donated a ton of cat food and cat liter and a ton of time at Pet Smart this last weekend. Deryn Toothman delivered the donations to Cats Are Us and Harley greeted her to say thank you.  (Of course, Harley was NOT supposed to be outside at the time.)

Deryn Toothman and her family adopted Sophie from Cats Are Us and now Sophie, along with Deryn, have grown considerably. Sophie is now 10 and Deryn is now a lovely young woman. Thanks to all their kindness who helped in making the ornaments going on the Kitty Christmas trees and for helping feed our guys and gals. You all will hold a special place in our hearts and Harley and all the others furbabies will never forget you. Cats Are Us salutes Rossview and the Spanish Honor Society! It is our honor to know such fine young people.

YOU GUYS ARE THE BEST!

JOSTENS SPONSORS CATS ARE US SUPPLY DRIVE

Jostens organized a benefit drive for Cats Are Us starting October 23, 2013 through November 1, 2013. Today wasn’t the first day of the drive but the bins were already bursting over with goodies galore. We at Cats Are Us wish to thank everyone there for allowing this to happen and for all the wonderful cat food, cat liter and cat supplies they are providing. While there everyone was so helpful and all I heard was how many cat people there were working there. It was great! The first load was in my car today and the drive hadn’t even started.

Jostens' Cats Are Us Supply Drive going on starting tomorrow and running through the end of this month.

In 1897 Otto Josten set out to repair people’s keepsake jewelry. He soon found himself creating a cultural icon. Through the Jostens class ring, generations have been empowered to share their unique stories and connections to the people, traditions and experiences that define them. And in turn, these stories have defined Jostens.
