With input from our friends at the Community Cat Coalition, each week we will be featuring a cat that needs a loving home.
Jasmine is such a sweet kitty. Approximately two years old, she has a round little face, round little body and short legs. Jasmine showed up at one of our feeding sites, skinny and looking for food. Sometimes we wouldn’t see her for a while, and then she started arriving on a regular basis, waiting for my car when I would drive up to feed.
With a healthy diet, she has added a few pounds and is now nice and plump. Jasmine loves chin scratches and cheek rubs. She will curl up next to you and sleeps on her foster mom’s chest at night or by her head. She is still a little shy around new people, but Jasmine is so sweet and loving that we know with a little time to settle in that she will make a great companion.
We think she would do best in a quiet, calm home. Jasmine is now spayed, up-to-date on vaccines, wormed, flea rx, tested negative for viral infections, and microchipped. If you would like to know more about her, please contact Jan at 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.
