With input from our friends at the Community Cat Coalition we are featuring a cat that needs a loving home.
Gigi is a petite Calico/torti girl about five months old. She has beautiful fur, big round eyes, and a cute stubby tail. She is a busy girl that is friendly and loves attention. She also likes to be held.
If only she could talk and tell us her story. She was rescued from a wooded area across from a high school. Luckily, a neighbor spotted her and contacted a rescuer that happened to live next door.
We really don’t know where she came from or how long she had been on her own. We do know that she was dehydrated and had an injury to her tail that was either caused by a predator or being caught in something sharp.
Her foster mom says, “When the door is opened to her room, she looks to see who it is. If it is somebody she knows, she comes running and wants to be loved and played with. She purrs while being held and relaxes in the arms of her friend. The smallest movement or voice sparks her curiosity and if she is in hiding, it won’t be for long before she comes out. It is not in her personality to stay still, but she will roll over on her back and stretch out for rubbing and she will curl up with you when she is sleepy. She has normal kitten behavior like jumping, plunging, pouncing, licking and cuddling.”
Gigi is a high-energy kitty, so she will need another young feline companion to play with. She would do well with a family.
All our kitties are altered, up to date on vaccines, tested negative for viral infections and microchipped.

About the Community Cat Coalition:
The Community Cat Coalition (CCC) was formed in November 2011 when a few people realized that if rescue groups, shelters, and independent rescuers work together, we can make a positive change in the lives of our community cats.
The CCC is an all volunteer organization . All funds go toward the efforts of TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return) – paying for spay/neuters, vaccines, medical care for injured/sick free roaming cats, or the costs of fostering the kittens who are removed from the sites.
Our goal is to educate interested people in our area so there is a common understanding of what a community cat is (they may be feral, semi-feral, or abandoned/stray tame cats – any free roaming cat) and how to care for them.
The community cats belong to no one person – they belong to all of us. This concept is taking hold worldwide, and we CAN make a difference right here, in our communities.
We provide classes in basic TNR, (Trap-Neuter-Return) open to the public and all shelters/rescues. We give people the tools to do TNR safely and effectively, and we also simply involve them in the care of the community cats.
We also offer classes on related topics, such as care of bottle babies, taming feral kittens, and how to do a barn relocation. All classes are free.
We are excited to be in the middle of this movement - TNR and care of the community cats is a worldwide phenomena and is rapidly gaining in popularity.
