With input from our friends at the Community Cat Coalition, each week we will be featuring a cat that needs a loving home.
Hobbs was trapped as a kitten behind an apartment complex in Pierce County and his mother was being fed by the complex’s manager. Hobbs was a sweet boy from the beginning, and it was immediately clear that he was meant to be some lucky human’s companion.
“Hi! What took you so long?!? You must not have heard about my wispy ears--they get people every time!" (I know the topic of my ears is kind of random, but I focus on it because I don't want you to focus on my name.)
I was named after The Hobbit because I was so small when I entered foster, but I later learned that I'm way too cute for Tolkien's imagination, and I'm a growing boy!
Besides my adorable ears, I have a beautiful coat (spotted and striped) and am a lovebug--just pet me and hear me purr. I'm also a group-oriented guy and can't wait to find my forever crew, so, if yours could use a dose of wonderful ear-wisp-ness, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more about me!
P.S. I'm about 4-months-old, neutered, vaccinated, and litterbox trained!”
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.
We do not currently have a website, but post frequent stories/information on our Facebook page. http://www.facebook.com/CommunityCatCoalitionWa.
