With input from our friends at the Community Cat Coalition, each week we will be featuring a cat that needs a loving home.
Approximately two years old, Puma may look like a black panther, but she is really an angel in disguise! Puma was found roaming around a schoolyard trying to make friends with all the kids. She loved the attention, purring and rubbing up against the children who were able to pet her. This sweet, friendly girl hung around the school because she was evidently homeless and looking for food and companionship. She was gobbling up any food she was given or could find.
Puma was easily picked up and put in a carrier and is very happy to be warm and safe inside. Puma doesn't meow much, but when she is eating something she loves, she sounds like she is saying, Yumyumyumyumyum.
Puma is healthy with black shiny fur and white spots on her belly and chest. She has a cute kinky tail. She is good about using her litter box and scratching post. We think she would do best as an only cat so that she can have all the attention for herself.
She was already altered, and is now up-to-date on vaccines, wormed, flea rx, tested negative for viral infections and microchipped. Questions? Email 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.
