Local resident provides care for cats – NorthJersey.com

Living with a cat could lower the owners’ cholesterol, reduce their risk for heart attack and stroke and possess many other health benefits. Didn’t know that?

Denville resident Cindy Schieding can tell you all about the benefits of having a cat companion. She has been volunteering at Pet Adoption Through Caring Hands (PATCH), a no-kill cat shelter in Pompton Lakes, for six years.

Schieding selflessly surrenders her Friday evenings for the furry, four-legged, frisky, felines after her day job as chief radiation therapist for Chilton Hospital’s Cancer Center in Pompton Plains.
