With input from our friends at the Community Cat Coalition we are featuring a cat that needs a loving home.
Milo is a lightweight with a heavyweight’s personality. Approximately five years of age, he is so handsome with his white fluffy fur and Persian face.
The only reason we know his name is Milo is because he had a microchip when he was found. We managed to find the owner, but he had given Milo up, and the new owner did not care to have Milo returned.
Milo wandered into a backyard in Snohomish looking like he needed a meal and a bath. Being a friendly cat, he made his presence known and nudged his face against any person he could find.
This person turned out to be a cat person and noticed that Milo had a problem with one of his eyes. He wasn’t able to see out of that eye, so he was taken to the vet. The eye had become so terribly infected and inflamed that it had done damage to the eye. If this had been cared for early on, the problem could have been cured.
Milo had to have his eye removed but this has not hindered him one bit. He sees very well with his other eye.
He uses the litter box, scratches on a post and is a good eater - not too picky. He also doesn’t meow much. He does like to annoy other cats so we think he would be best in a home without other cats.
Milo totally accepts dogs that are friendly by not paying much attention to them and just doing what Milo wants. He is a character with a “big” personality.
He goes absolutely nuts over catnip. You don’t want to get between him and his mouse! Milo also likes to look out windows and walk around the house swishing his fluffy tail. He doesn’t know he is also dusting the floor. He also rolls over and will sleep on his back.
The cat is so sweet and deserves a great home for the rest of his life.
All medical has been done on him, and he feels much better since his infected eye was removed. Won’t you give him a chance?

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.
