With input from our friends at the Community Cat Coalition we are featuring a cat that needs a loving home.
Izzy is a very sweet cat that is about 16 months old. She has lovely big eyes and is very affectionate. She will reach out her paws and wrap them around your neck like she is giving you a hug.
Izzy was rescued from a drug house in south Seattle. She was not well cared for and in some danger. The rescuer got a call from a concerned person in the area. She picked up this lovely girl and found a foster home to care for her.
She evidently didn't get much playtime in her previous environment, so toys seemed to be new to her, but she is making up for lost time.
She loves to follow people around and likes to snuggle. She gets along with other cats, but she is not sure about dogs. She would love to be adopted with her buddy, Larry, or have another friendly cat in the home as a companion.
She would be fine with older, respectful children.
Izzy is a kitty that would need to have her feeding regulated. She cannot be free fed, as she eats quickly and will over eat. She will need a grain free canned food diet to keep her from gaining weight.
**You can visit Izzy and her friend, Larry, at Paddywack's Pet Store at 15407 Main Street in the Mill Creek Town Center. They are waiting for their forever home.
All of our kitties are litter box trained. They are spayed/neutered, age appropriate vaccines, wormed, flea rx, 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.
