January 18th Update
We have heard from our friends at Paddywack that Mindy and Gracie have been adopted and are settling in well and enjoying their new home.
With input from our friends at the Community Cat Coalition, each week we will be featuring a cat that needs a loving home.
Approximately four and a half months old, Gracie (brown tabby) and Mindy (gray and white) were born to a feral mom in a vacant lot behind a strip mall.
Kindhearted employees looked out for the mom and kittens and eventually reached out for help on what best to do next.
Gracie and Mindy are sweet girls and will roll over for tummy rubs. They like cheek rubs and chin scratches. Their personalities shine when they are at ease.
We know that if they receive love, they will give it back in bundles! Both love toys, especially wand toys and a laser light.
Gracie and Mindy are shy around new people, but these kitties have come a long way and are ready for their new homes!
Each would do best in a calm home that gives them time to settle in. Once comfortable, the kitties will come out of their shell.
Both are so sweet and loving that we know they will make a great companion.
Mindy and Gracie would like to be adopted together or would need to have another young cat in the home to play with.
Spayed, up-to-date on vaccines, flea rx and wormed, tested negative for viral infections, 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.
