With input from our friends at the Community Cat Coalition, each week we will be featuring a cat that needs a loving home.
Please adopt Libby! Libby is a darling sweet, outwardly affectionate little old lady cat. Found starving at a feral feeding station, Libby looks to have survived for years on her own outdoors. She was living with badly abscessed teeth and old healed-over leg fractures.
At first it wasn't clear she'd recover from the insults of time and neglect. The veterinarian said, "Let's just see what a few weeks of regular food does for her."
Low and behold, after a month of square meals and some desperately needed dental work, Libby is moving beyond her life of pain and want. She's put on 2lbs, and now sports the fur of a much younger cat.
Libby is an incredibly affectionate, sweet, pillow-sleeping, face-nuzzling purr bug darling of a little old lady. She often sleeps with a paw stretched out, touching her person. She clearly has time and a lot of love to share.
Libby grudgingly tolerates "The Dog" (she is, after all, a tortie), but clearly if she got to pick, she'd ask to be your only companion animal. She has a habit of taking a hand in both of her paws, and pulling, to ask for pets or to offer affectionate little chin rubs. She is chatty and communicative about her needs, and really just needs a pillow and a warm person to sleep by for the rest of her life
If you have love and a soft pillow for this beautiful little cat, contact Marianne Cavelti 206-395-5752 or via email email@example.com for more information.
Libby thanks you for your interest!
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.
We have established an email account in order to provide a way for anyone to reach out and contact us with questions (firstname.lastname@example.org).
