Cat Scouts is a community of cats who are committed to living life The Cat Scout Way. The Cat Scout Handbook is their guide on this adventure. Cat Scouts earn merit badges, enjoy the camaraderie of fellow scouts around the campfire, learn Cat Scoutcraft, and do service projects in their communities. They learn self reliance and survival skills. They wear spiffy uniforms. Girlcat Scouts sell Cat Scout Cookies on card tables in front of Piggly Wigglys to raise money for Cat Scout activities.

MEMBERSHIP IS FREE and members will be entitled to a discount on The Cat Scout Handbook when it is published.

Cat Scouts requires that you complete an application that demonstrates your commitment to living life The Cat Scout Way and fulfill some basic requirements. The admissions board will review your application and notify you if you are accepted.

SCOUT TEDDY

“I joined Scouts because my brother Sammy loved Scouting so very much. He wanted me to carry on the family tradition and told me that it would be a good place to learn how to be a responsible, caring, sensitive kitty and take my place being in charge of my adopted humans AND at Cat Scouts trying to fill his very large place in the Troop he started and the Patrol he loved. He said I’d meet a lot of wonderful humans and cat friends and he was right – that’s why I keep coming back.”

WOLVERINES

The Wolverines, lead by Patrol Leader Gracie and Assistant Patrol Leader Allie, is the one of the most active and dynamic of the Cat Scout Patrols. Its motto is, “All for one and one for all.”

Cat Scouts sponsors a rescued cat through the sale of Cat Scouts Rescue Bracelets. We’re currently sponsoring Solarflare:
Solarflare loves people. That’s a really good thing because Solarflare has special needs that require human help several times per day.

As a youngster in NYC, Solarflare encountered some misadventure and hurt his spine. As a result, he has some mobility issues and cannot urinate on his own. Solarflare needs his bladder expressed twice a day. Solarflare lives at Quincy House, the area in Cat World that houses many of the Sanctuary’s special-needs cats. Fortunately, Solarflare is so loving he makes it easy to help with his ‘bathroom breaks’. Read Solarflare’s story here.


Leopold 
is the next cat that Cat Scouts hopes to sponsor.

Somewhere in his travels, Leopold fractured his ankle and it didn’t heal quite right. Leopold’s bad luck didn’t let up. He was hit by a car which re-injured that same back leg. But his bad days are behind him. This tough little lynx point needed specialized surgical care followed by a long and careful recovery. And he got it all at Best Friends –plus a heated cat bed! Read Leopold’s story here.

Cat Scouts Rescue Bracelets for Solarflare and Leopold will be available for purchase on March 5th. We’ll let you know the minute they’re available!

The proceeds from the sale of Cat Scouts Rescue Bracelets go toward sponsoring rescue cats and offsetting some of the costs of keeping Catscouts.com running. Rescue bracelets are also available with custom portraits for an additional cost. We’ll post that link shortly.

Cat Scouts is not just about fun and adventure. Scouts also purrform service projects every month. We send birthday and holiday cards to residents of two facilities for the handicapped in Ohio and New York. The recipients often have limited contact from their families, so the cards mean the world to them. They mean a lot to the scouts who send them, too, giving warm and fuzzies that spur them on to contribute even more to their communities.
