With input from our friends at the Community Cat Coalition we are featuring a cat that needs a loving home.
Daisy Mae is a dashing blue cream tortoiseshell and approximately six years young. We don't know how long she has been hanging out in the neighborhood, but she made her appearance at her foster mom’s doorstep in June.
Lucky for Daisy, an animal rescuer lived there.
Daisy came to live inside and within 24 hours, she settled in nicely and her personality is slowly starting to blossom.
She is starting to trust her foster family more and now likes to spend more time with them. She loves her cat stands and scratchers, giving light head butts, and watching the outside activities.
She would love a cat tree, so she could watch the birds and butterflies from inside the window. She sometimes will sit on laps, and occasionally when sitting with her, she will cut loose briefly and play with a feather toy.
She appears to be comfortable around the other cats and our dog, IF they are not assertive and respect her space.
When she's had the opportunity to roam the house, she heads straight for the sliding glass door, asking to be let out. In her own stable environment with a doting family, we think she would be satisfied not to explore outdoors anymore.
Daisy may be a door dasher and would need to be monitored, so that she is kept safe inside. She is a kitty that would love an enclosed catio or some type of escape proof outside cat enclosure.
Daisy is spayed, vaccinated, viral tested, treated for fleas, 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.
