Forever home cats of the week - Maggie and Jiggs

These two were adopted as kittens, eight years ago and returned because their owner wants to be able to travel without worrying about pet sitters.

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

These two were adopted as kittens, eight years ago and returned because their owner wants to be able to travel without worrying about pet sitters. And, she also wants to be able to sing in the house without these two running up and insisting on attention.

Maggie likes attention, but Jiggs DEMANDS it. This pair are friendly and affectionate and love to sit in your lap when you are reading or watching TV. They are used to living with senior citizens, so they will probably adapt faster to an adult-only home.

Friendly and confident, they will interact with human visitors once they are settled in and have done fine with some neighbor cats as well.

Both kitties would enjoy having a kitty enclosure or screened in deck to give them some outside time. Because their previous owner let them outside, they are used to being in a safe yard.

Cat Tales volunteers will be happy to assist you in making an inexpensive outdoor area with deer fencing. We even have some materials to donate.

We promise, they will be happy to see you!

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.
