With input from our friends at the Community Cat Coalition, each week we will be featuring a cat that needs a loving home.
A broken jaw may have saved his life…
Marcus has had a rough life. Evidently left behind when someone moved, he lived at a local business, along with a colony of cats that were fed by the office manager.
When the manager retired, a rescuer took over the colony care and noticed that Marcus’ jaw was injured. He had been hit by a car and was in pain. The rescuer rushed him to the vet where his jaw has been repaired.
While in recovery, the foster realized this cat is not feral or even semi-feral; he is SO happy to be inside.
Even after all his misfortunes, Marcus trusts and loves people. He loves all the attention he is receiving in his foster home. He is friendly and is happy to be warm and safe. This boy loves lots of attention and any lap that is available.
If you are interested in meeting Marcus, please contact Jan at firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
We have established an email account in order to provide a way for anyone to reach out and contact us with questions (email@example.com).
Thank you for your interest in TNR and the CCC.
