With input from our friends at the Community Cat Coalition, each week we will be featuring a cat that needs a loving home.
Joanie is a young kitty, probably nine to twelve months old, who showed up at a local rescuers home. This rescuer feeds many free roaming cats, so it is not unusual for a neighborhood cat to show up for a snack, but after a few weeks it became apparent that this sweet cat had been abandoned there.
Joanie is very friendly, just loves people, and gets along well with other cats. She is not fond of dogs. If you are looking for an affectionate playful young cat to join your household please stop by Paddywack Pet Supply In Mill Creek Town Center and pay her a visit.
Joanie has been altered, is up-to-date on vaccines, wormed, flea rx, 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.
