December 26 update: Rusty has been adopted into a wonderful home.
With input from our friends at the Community Cat Coalition, each week we will be featuring a cat that needs a loving home.
Hello, my name is Rusty. I am a very handsome red classic bullseye tabby. Just look at the perfect circle on each side.
I must have had a loving family at one time because I am very, very sweet and demand attention, however, for a reason unknown to me I was dumped at the home of a lady that feeds a feral colony. I was scared of the ferals and I ran to her door to please let me in her home. Thankfully she took me in.
She checked to see if anyone had lost a cat on various websites and the neighborhood but no one came forward. Sooo, I am looking for a permanent home where I can live out my life with a family that will love me and never be abandoned again.
My attributes are: Very handsome cat, litter box perfect, lap sit for a short time, love to play with toys and especially wands with a bird or mouse on the end of the string, strong purr, love your hands to rub on (sometimes I get so happy I give a tiny love nip), sleeping partner, head rubbing, talkative. All in all, I am a perfect cat!
Love wet food (lots of it). I think I can get along with other cats if they are not bossy or aggressive. Dogs I am not sure about. I am very shy at first until I get comfortable (about 15 minutes) with the person that is going to love me or maybe give me a home.
If any questions about my sweetness, check with my foster mom Mary, 425-308-4131 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
