With input from our friends at the Community Cat Coalition, each week we will be featuring a cat that needs a loving home.
Hi! My name is Stout. No, not after a little teapot but rather for my beautiful, dark brown tabby coat and the fact that I'm a survivor, having been found outside with my two sisters when I was just a baby.
My foster mom has never met a kitten she didn't love, but she says there's just something extra special about me. I can be cautious around new people (which my foster mom says is just being smart, which I very much am!), but, once I feel the love, I am the most wonderful companion you could ever imagine.
I love to be petted and rub faces with you; I love to lounge with you ; and I love to play with cat toys of any kind.
So, if you're looking for an extra special best friend, please email email@example.com to find out if I'm the one for you!
P.S. I'm about five months old, spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, and litter box trained.
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.
We do not currently have a website, but post frequent stories/information on our Facebook page. http://www.facebook.com/CommunityCatCoalitionWa.
We have established an email account in order to provide a way for anyone to reach out and contact us with questions (firstname.lastname@example.org).
