Forever home cat of the week - Sienna

Sienna was found as a feral kitten, 10-12 weeks old, in the fall of 2012. She is actually quite a sweet cat, loves to sleep with her human and to be petted. She comes when called, especially if she knows you have Temptation treats!

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

Sienna was found as a feral baby, 10-12 weeks old, in the fall of 2012. She was almost trapped, spayed, and returned to live wild, but there was no one feeding the cats at that site; her rescuer knew she would likely starve. So – Sienna went to a multi-cat home, one where the cats are allowed to go indoor/outdoor through a cat door. Her new human specifically takes in young semi-feral kittens to give them a chance to tame down in time, then find a new home.

Well, Sienna DID tame down! She is actually quite a sweetie, loves to sleep with her human and to be petted. She comes when called, especially if she knows you have Temptation treats!  Ironically, she prefers to be inside and would do fine as an indoor only cat, but is okay as an in/out as well. She is litter box perfect, is spayed, vaccinated, dewormed and deflea’d, microchipped and viral tested (negative).

Unfortunately, Sienna does not get along with another cat in the home, and that cat lived there first. So Sienna is looking for a home NOW!

There will be no adoption fee required for her, and she comes with a return guarantee for life; her foster mom just wants to see her happy.

Sienna does well with the other cats, her mom thinks she is youngest and just trying to “move up the ladder.” She also lives with dogs, and has no problems with them either. She should not go into a home with already present adult cats, ideally she would either be a single or have a kitten companion.

While she is totally tame with her mom, the foster house is very quiet with few visitors; Sienna will hide at first in a new home, but should come out easily enough in a week or so. Her foster mom would stay connected to give any help needed in transitioning her!

Please consider giving Sienna a home, we hate to see her caged! Contact Nancy at nwahl@netzero.net or 425-330-2658 for info.

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.

Our website is: communitycatcoalitionwa.org. We also post frequent stories/information on our Facebook page. http://www.facebook.com/CommunityCatCoalitionWa
