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

April 17, Update:

We are happy to pass on the information that Marquita has been adopted.

Original Article:

Marquita is a very sweet, calm cat.  She is happy to roll over, so you can rub her tummy.  Ms. M loves to be petted and will curl up next to you for more attention.  She is shy around new people, so she will do best in a calm quiet home that gives her time to settle in.

Marquita was abandoned when her owners moved, and a kind neighbor had been feeding her.  Unfortunately, the neighbor is elderly and is no longer able to care for her.  Marquita deserves a chance at a loving, forever home where she is warm and safe.

She is such a kind, gentle cat that we know, that with a little time and patience, Marquita will make a great companion. 

She is not a biter or scratcher and is great about using the litter box.

She is spayed, up to date on vaccines, wormed, flea rx, tested 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.
