Forever home cat of the week - El Gato

El Gato is such a handsome boy cat with his ear tufts and long whiskers.  He is such a sweet cat who loves attention and seems to like everyone he meets.  He does not scare easily and will greet you with a purr.

With input from our friends at the Community Cat Coalition, each week we will be featuring a cat that needs a loving home.

El Gato is such a handsome gentleman with his ear tufts and long whiskers.  He is such a sweet cat who loves attention and seems to like everyone he meets.  He does not scare easily and will greet you with a purr. 

He wouldn’t think of scratching or biting a person that is friendly to him.  This calm kitty is looking for a family to call his own.

El Gato evidently had a family and was loved at one time, since he was neutered when he was rescued. 

He was found wandering around an apartment complex looking for food.  He wanted to be inside where it was safe and warm and look forward to having a steady meal. 

Of course, he loves mealtime. When he gobbles his food he does make a gurgling sound, but he has been checked out by a vet and was given a clean bill of health. 

El Gato is good about always using his litter box.

He is now up-to-date on 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.
