With input from our friends at the Community Cat Coalition, each week we will be featuring a cat that needs a loving home.
“Hi, my name is Buddy Love. I had another name at some time and a home, but I don’t know where my home was.”
“I was abandoned in the country and roamed for six weeks over several acreages looking for someone to help me. Amazing that I was able to avoid the coyotes, eagles and owls as I was walking across pastures and into the forest.”
“A lady that does rescue started putting food out for me, she had been watching me for the six weeks and finally was able to get me into her home, taken to a clinic for vaccines, combo test and neuter.”
“I am so happy to be in a nice room with a lot of food, toys and a warm bed. I am a BIG LOVER! I like my tummy rubbed, nose to nose touches, a lot of stroking, brushing and snuggling. I am not a great lap cat but like to ‘root’ with my head under arms, next to sides and against a hand.”
“I am a ‘flirt,’ rolling side to side to entice tummy rubs. Sometimes I get over stimulated and will just gently grab the arm, but would never bite down. I love to play with ‘da bird.’ this gives me exercise at jumping and running. Little mice toys are great too, but my real need is catnip, I Love Catnip.”
“I also love to sleep with you. You will notice I have a ‘cauliflower ear,’ that is due to severe ear mite infestation, which is cleared up now. I think the ear gives me character and makes me a special cat!”
“I am looking for a quiet adult home where I will get the attention and love I crave. I don’t remember if I like dogs or other cats, so introducing me to these other animals would need to be very slow.”
“I never want to be abandoned again or have to roam outside, although sometimes I might just get an urge to door dash, so make sure I am not allowed to do this.”
“My dream is to have a family that I can live out my life with them and never have to worry about food, shelter or the dangers of being outside.”
“If there are any questions, please contact my foster mom, Mary at 425-308-4131 or email@example.com.”
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.
