With input from our friends at the Community Cat Coalition, each week we will be featuring a cat that needs a loving home.
Edith Ann is a sweet, loveable cat that is looking for a lifetime commitment. She lived with an older lady that was no longer able to keep her because of a change in her living arrangements.
Approximately five to six years old, Edith Ann is a friendly girl and loves attention. She likes to play and loves her catnip toys.
She would love a sunny spot on the couch and would be happy to curl up next to you on a bed.
Edith would like a quiet, calm home without other animals, so that she can have all the attention for herself.
Edith Ann has tested positive as being exposed to the FIV virus. As indoor cats, FIV cats are not exposed to diseases, fights, abscesses and the other stresses of outdoor life. So, kept inside, FIV cats tend to live near-normal life spans.
FIV is not easily passed from cat to cat, and requires a deep bite or mating to transmit. As with humans and HIV, it is not passed by casual contact. Edith Ann can live a long and healthy life.
Edith Ann was already spayed and declawed when she was rescued.
She is up-to-date on vaccines, has been wormed, is viral tested 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.
