With input from our friends at the Community Cat Coalition, each week we will be featuring a cat that needs a loving home.
Where Sherlock came from is a mystery. Approximately three years old, Sherlock is a very handsome big boy. He showed up at one of our feeding sites looking for food. Sometimes we wouldn’t see him for a while, and then he started arriving on a regular basis, waiting for my car when I would drive up to feed.
We think he has been on his own for a while, so he is still gaining in confidence. He is still a little shy around new people, but Sherlock is so sweet and loving that we know with a little time to settle in that he will make a great companion.
We think he would appreciate a small quiet family that will give him time and space to get comfortable with his new surroundings. He has been around another cat and probably would like a feline friend.
Sherlock is now neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, wormed, flea rx, tested negative for viral infections, and microchipped. If you would like to know more about her, please contact Jan at email@example.com
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.
