With input from our friends at the Community Cat Coalition we are featuring a cat that needs a loving home.

Pronto is a handsome brown tabby with beautiful eyes. Approximately eight  years old, he is a sweet and friendly boy.  He is very loving and affectionate.

Pronto loves to be petted and will roll over seeking belly scratches. He may be a little shy when he first meets you but warms up quickly.

Unfortunately, Pronto’s elderly owner was rushed to the hospital in critical condition and has since passed away.

A neighbor took care of Pronto temporarily but was not able to keep him, and luckily a rescuer had room to take him in.

Pronto has the beginning of kidney disease, which is treated with diet and a chewable medication, which he takes readily. Our vet stated that it would be many years before there are any changes in his health.

Pronto has not been around children or dogs that we know of. He would probably do best as an only cat, so he could have all the love and attention for himself.

He would probably do fine around respectful, older children. Pronto needs a permanent home, so that he doesn’t need to experience any more changes in his life.  He will make someone a great companion.

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.
