Finding Homes for Stray Cats, Through Fostering and Adoption Assistance
Finding Homes for Stray Cats, Through Fosteringand Adoption Assistance

Welcome to Stray Cat Blues!

 

 

Welcome!  For over 15 years Stray Cat Blues has been working to help stray, abandoned and feral cats in Montgomery and Bucks Counties, and the surrounding areas.  In addition to fostering and adoption of friendly cats and kittens, our group actively encourages Trap Neuter Return spay and neuter of feral cats.  

Here's What's Happening at Stray Cat Blues...

SPONSORED KITTIES!

Each of the following kitties has had their adoption fee paid by a generous donor as an incentive for you to adopt them!  Once approved, take your new best friend home for free!  Found the cat for you?  Click here to fill out an adoption application!

Bernadette - 2 year old Burmese - She is a diva, who needs an experienced cat person!

Claire - 5 years old -  Very active and loves playing with toys and laser pointers! She is a little shy at first but once you bring out the treats she will warm up fast! She is very sweet once settled in! 

James Bond - 5+ years old -  Very sweet and loving kitty!  James is a FIV positive cat.  Cats with FIV can live long and healthy lives.  They just need a chance.  

Carmella -  1-2 years old - Carmella is a young kitty who is friendly and laid back!  She has allergies and requires a grain free dry food.  Maybe you have allergies too and can relate?

Flossie -  1 year old - Flossie is a young cat who needs a quiet home without other cats.  But she likes dogs!  So, if your dog needs a friend, Flossie might be the cat for you! 

Katerina - 5 years old, declawed -  She lost her home when elderly owner passed away.  She loves being pet, but is uncomfortable about being picked up. Since she is used to a quiet life, she would make a great companion for a single person.  No kids, please.

PEANUT NEEDS YOUR HELP!

 

Peanut is a small black and white male tuxedo kitty that was injured prior to being  rescued.  Something almost tore two toes off and severly wounded his left back leg.    Peanut has been struggling to heal with the extent of his injuries and infections but he has remained happy and loving.  He has received laser treatments, stitches down his entire leg that wouldn't hold due to the wounds being so large and now daily cleanings and wrappings to try and save his little leg.  Progress is slow but we remain hopeful.   Peanut is still under a 6 month quarantine until later in December, which is required by the county.

 

Peanuts could really use a Sponsor or some friends to help with his vet bills as they are ongoing at this point and he would love to meet you when he is once again healthy and out of pain.

PEANUT UPDATE 11/10!

 

Peanut is continuing to improve and heal.  He is still staying at Green Lane Vet where they clean, treat and wrap his wounds daily.  The wounds have reduced in size over 50% (!) but still have a little ways to go.  They don’t want to release him until all of the scabbing is also gone so he cannot reopen any wounds on his own. 

 

Peanut is currently on pain medication to reduce the anxiety and pain from his leg. As soon as the wound has totally sealed, they will start reducing the pain meds to see how he reacts.  Peanut is still such a little love, and we are hopeful that the pain is already decreasing for him as his treatment progresses.

Winter 2016 Newsletter!  

 

Want to know more about our fundraising efforts?  Check out our most current newsletter by clicking here.

 

Rescue and fundraising are two intense efforts that must go hand-in- hand (or in our case paw-in-hand). Without

additional financial support from the community, we could not continue our cat and kitten rescue work. Our expenses increase every year and our adoption fees do not cover them.  So please take a look at what we do, check out our Facebook page, and if you support our goals, make a donation.  To donate online, click here.  And thank you from the kitties and our volunteers!

 

VOLUNTEER TRAPPERS AND FOSTERS NEEDED!!

 

Just look at this adorable little face...don't you wish that you could snuggle a kitten each and every day?  Well, you're in luck, because Stray Cat Blues is always seeking volunteers!  Right now we can especially use animal lovers interested in providing foster care and TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return) services in the Montgomery and Bucks County area.  

 

For both roles, we offer plenty of training and support, so no matter how experienced you are in animal rescue work, we definitely have a place for you.  Stray Cat Blues members work together as a team committed to providing the best care possible to as many cats as possible, and we cannot do it without YOUR help.  If you think you can volunteer even a few hours of your time, please fill out an application here (click here), and one of our grateful team members will get in touch with you to welcome you to the family.

 

Here are a few cats that you should really take a look at....

Tabitha

 

Tabitha is a lovely 7 year old brown mackeral tabby who is FIV positive. She came from a colony of cats where she had given birth to many litters of kittens. She was rescued and finally spayed, much to her great relief and that of her rescuer. Tabitha has a continuous purr. She loves playing with her kitty toys and fuzzy mouse and generally acting like a kitten herself after being a momma cat for so many years in her former life. Tabitha has a warm, affectionate nature and a sweet habit of kneeding her blankets at night before curling up in them for a good night's sleep. Tabitha would love to have a forever home of her own. 

Tabitha is spayed, litterbox trained, is up to date on vaccinations and tested negative for FeLV, but positive for FIV.  FIV stands for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus.  FIV can suppress the immune system but most cats live very long and healthy lives with FIV.  Our volunteers would be happy to discuss this condition with you.  FIV is primarily spread through deep bite wounds.  FIV is not spread by sharing litter boxes or food bowls. It is also not spread by cats cuddling or playing with each other (so FIV cats can in many cases live in homes with non-FIV cats).  FIV cannot be spread to people or to non-cat pets such as dogs.  FIV+ cats are sweet, funny, affectionate, and playful, just as any other cat!

"Bond . . .James Bond."

Doesn't he look exactly like Secret Agent 007?!  Actually, when thinking about a name for this guy in his tuxedo, we recollected that the article of formal wear was the uniform of 007, thus his name.

 

James Bond was a stray out in the bitter cold until a kind person brought him into her basement and then realized she didn't know what to do with him next. So, she called Stray Cat Blues and a foster home was available for him.

 

Unfortunately, when he was tested for FIV, the result was positive. FIV stands for Feline Immuno-deficiency Virus, a slow virus that affects a cat's immune system over a period of years. It is a cat-only disease and cannot be spread to humans or other non-felines. FIV cats most often live long, healthy and relatively normal lives with no symptoms at all. FIV is not easily passed between cats. It cannot be spread casually - like in litter boxes, water and food bowls or when snuggling and playing. 

 

James Bond is approximately 5-years-old and is very sweet and loving in nature. He was recently neutered and is up-to-date on his vaccines.  He is living in a foster home now and is more than ready to move into his forever home.
