With input from our friends at the Community Cat Coalition, each week we will be featuring a cat that needs a loving home.
Samuel Whiskers was adopted by a family as a cute, furry kitten and has been returned to his foster mom through no fault of his own. The adopters did not take into account that Sammy would grow up to be a large cat with lots of fur.
Sammy is a very handsome gentleman with his ear tufts, large feet and fluffy tail. Because of his heavy coat, he will require regular grooming and brushing on a daily basis to keep him looking his best.
Sammy is eleven months old and still very much the kitten. He is very playful and curious. He loves catnip toys and the turbo cat scratcher. He loves attention and cheek rubs and chin scratches.
Sammy is shy around new people, and he would do best in a calm household that understands that he has had an unsettling change in his life recently. He has been around other cats and would like a young feline friend to play with.
Neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, wormed, flea rx, tested negative for FeLV/FIV, 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.
