Born Feral Now Ready for Adoption: Thursday Purrsday


Another Paw It Forward Project that Mom L took on in my behalf.  She is now the official photographer and test kit opener and syringe prep person for the Thursday free vet clinic for Community Concern 4 Cats (CC4C).

Our good friend Dr Josie, DVM retired, donates her service and the President of CC4C, Miss Gemma,  holds the clinic in her kitchen!  We think she has more feline meds in her fridge than people food!! MOL!!

Do not even mention the word "Vet"

Do not even mention the word “Vet”

CC4C rescues kittens born into feral colonies and also adult strays that find their way into the colonies.  They have no facility, so all kittens and cats rescued are fostered. They also do TNR work and many of the volunteers manage large feral colonies and make sure the cats have food, water and if they see a cat injured or ill, they work hard to trap it and bring it to the clinic to be treated.

I have put the photos into slideshows…I think you will all enjoy seeing the variety of shapes, sizes and beautiful different colored furs in the kittens and adults who were treated last week.

One slide show is of one cat who captured Mom L’s heart…and his test results brought tears to everyone’s eyes…please send purrs to this amazing cat…he has no name that we know of…but he is a gentle soul, only about 6 years old…easy to hold and pet…must have been dumped and found as a stray in the foster Mom’s colony….I have named him Mister…

Sadly, he tested positive for Feline Leukemia Virus. It is terminal although he can live comfortably for some time. CC4C will try to find a foster or other rescue who take in FeLV only cats.  Miss Gemma said she had not seen FeLV tests positive in any of the colonies they manage for almost eight years!!

Here are two more adults getting their tests.  Dr Josie draws blood from the jugular on adults as they were getting a combo test; the kittens’ blood draw is taken from a vein inside their hind legs.

Adults getting tested and vaccinated…and general checkup…

And now some totally ‘squueee-able” kittens…

This Paw It Forward Project will continue every week or so. I will bring you photos if you find this interesting and are learning what happens in feral cat/kitten rescue and TNR.  Mom L adores doing this even when there is sad test results…Mister will be well cared for and not allowed to die unnoticed in the out of doors world.

Paw Pats, Savannah

    Bless your mom sweet Savannah, she has such a loving and caring heart. It is wonderful what she is doing to help these precious kitties. We hope all of them find wonderful loving homes. We are sad about Mister. We pray someone takes him home and loves and cares for him but if not we know he will be loved and cared for right where he is. We really enjoy seeing the cats that your mom works with. Hugs and nose kisses

  16. as I saw Mister , thought YES! It’s so sad to read about him and I wish he would find a wonderful place. Since I met Sammy my heart belongs to Hemingway cats . I will share this post, hope it helps Mister and his feline friends who need a home.

  17. Those paws!! FeLV cats are so hard to place. We’re going to start running a series on less-adoptable cats in our community, and that’s an issue with some of them. FeLV cats are sooo hard to place, and that makes us sad when they’re such sweet kitties like Mister.

  18. Such important work. Great pictures. ….and those pink jelly toes! Ugh!

  19. I am so glad there are rescue humans, including yours, looking out for these kitties, especially ones like Mister, who need their help even more than the rest!

  20. You are the best. Thank you for the help and the out of tthe ball park photo journalism
