With input from our friends at the Community Cat Coalition, each week we will be featuring a cat that needs a loving home.
March 27 Update:
We have just been notified that Meowshawn has been adopted into a loving home with plenty of playmates.
Meowshawn is a very sweet 14 week old male. Opposite of his beastly namesake, this little guy is a love-bug. Meowshawn was trapped with his three siblings in a trailer park when he was six weeks old. He has been fostered in a busy household with five adult cats, a teenage cat, and a small dog. He loves to play with the “big kitties” and would do best in a home with another cat (or two or three).
He is a little shy with new people but warms up quickly once he feels safe. He is very affectionate and loves to give kisses and head butts. He has a supersize purr and loves to play with all kinds of kitty toys.
Meowshawn has been neutered, is up-to-date on vaccines, wormed, flea rx, tested negative for viral infections and microchipped.
You can meet Meowshawn at Paddywack Pet Supply in the Mill Creek Town Center.
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.
