With input from our friends at the Community Cat Coalition we are featuring a cat that needs a loving home.
Smudge is a very sweet girl, approximately four to five years old.
What her rescuer has to say about her:
“I noticed a cat that was routinely 'working/hunting' the field across from my office. One day I noticed that she was getting really close to the busy street. So thinking she was a feral, I went over to scare her away from the street. Was I surprised, when instead of heading the other direction, she came up and started rubbing on my legs! Like a true crazy cat lady, I scooped her and took her into my office.”
“Smudge is a very attractive girl with her beautiful markings. Being a Calico, she knows that she is special! Who else has a fur coat like this? Her eyes are a beautiful gold color – possibly letting us know that she is such a great cat and worth her weight in GOLD.”
“Smudge is very friendly and loves attention. Scratching down her back is one of her favorite things. She also loves chin scratches. She is very mellow and hasn’t quite figured out what it is like to play with toys. She didn’t have time to play before I found her. She was too busy hunting for her food. She loves to sit in my lap or snuggle on my chest. She is going to make someone a wonderful companion.”
We do not know how she would do around other cats or dogs, but she would probably do fine after a slow introduction process. We think that she would also do fine around calm, respectful children.
*Smudge is spayed, up-to-date on vaccines, wormed, tested negative for FIV/Felv 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.
