Welcome to Stray Cat Blues!

 

 

Welcome!  For over 20 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.

 

Stray Cat Blues is a Best Friends Animal Society Network Partner!  The Best Friends Network, made up of hundreds of shelters, rescue groups and other animal welfare organizations in all corners of the country, is committed to saving the lives of homeless pets through collaboration and implementation of effective adoption, spay/neuter and intake prevention programs.   

KITTY SHOWCASE - CARTER

Carter was abandoned and needs help to find his forever home!

 

Carter is 4 years old and a lover boy. He wants to be on your lap, close to you while you are watching TV or working on the computer, he would love to sleep on the bed at night. This boy would make a fabulous family pet or kitty companion for any cat loving person.

 

Carter was adopted as a kitten four years ago. A few weeks ago, he was found abandoned on the streets of Phoenixville. Some kind neighbors heard him crying from under a parked car and called him. He came running. They took him to Limerick Vet Hospital where his microchip was scanned. His adopter was called but the phone had been disconnected and they learned she had moved out of the area. Stray Cat Blues was then called and his former foster mom went to get him.  Please adopt Carter and give him a second chance that he so deserves!  To submit an adoption application for him, click here.

Apple Butter

Apple Butter was rescued with her sisters Pumpkin and Spice Girl from outside a house, as strays.  They were struggling to find shelter.  Apple Butter is very sweet and snuggly and low key and loves to sit and roll around on your lap while you pet her.  She also loves to play with little toy mice.  She likes other cats and should be ok with a very low key dog and needs a quiet home.

Dante - 2 years old - 

This very handsome kitty had a rough start to his life but you would never know it. Dante is very affectionate and loves people and will do almost anything for a head rub and cheek scratch. Dante was rescued from a farm where he was not properly cared for. He was eager to get in the carrier and on to an indoor life! Dante is approximately 2 years old. He's been through a lot and during his time outdoors, he contracted FIV. In spite of being FIV+, he is in tip-top health. FIV positive kitties can live long, healthy lives.  Please ask us for information.

Guy - 8 years old - 

Guy is approximately 8 1/2 year old former stray cat who used to live in an alley in Norristown. He was adopted into a family with a small child, but they returned him recently because he and the small child were not getting along. Because of that, Guy needs to go into a home where there are no small children. Unfortunately, he also needs to be an only cat because he doesn't get along with other cats. He is a love with adult people. When Stray Cat Blues rescued him we discovered he has a food allergy and there is only one food that agrees with him and that is Royal Canin Ultamino.

 

Jonas - 4 years old - 

My name is Jonas!  I am a 4 year old black male who is super sweet and gentle.  I was rescued during the storm that I am named after.  I love being petted and rolling on my back so that you can rub my belly and I will purr up a storm for you! Please adopt me!

During my time on the streets I contracted FIV (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus) With FIV, I can still live a long and happy life. It just means my immune system may be a bit compromised. 

 

Julius - 4 years old - 

Julius is a very good-looking black and white cat. He is approximately 4 years old and had a rough life in the colony where he was found. It’s possible that he was once a pet as he was previously neutered and had worn down fur around his neck as if he once wore a collar. He is extremely friendly with people. He does not have a mean bone in his body and is very content. 

Unfortunately, he tested positive for FIV, which means he has a supressed immune system. FIV+ cats can live good, long lives and so far, Julius has done just that. 

Julius would be happy as an “only” kitty, but could also go to a home with a laid-back resident cat

 

Katy - 11 years old - 

Hi I'm Katy. I'm a very sweet and very petite, 11-year old kitty. I was originally rescued in Sellersville and was adopted. However due to a change in health and living arrangements, they were no longer able to take care of me and I came back to Stray Cat Blues. I've had all senior blood work and the Vet says everything looks good. I do have a little stiffness in one of my back legs so I need a short litterbox, or at least one short side. I've always been an only cat so I don't know how I'd do with other cats. At this point in my life, I'd like a quiet home with no young children. I love windows and like being brushed. I'm also okay with getting my claws clipped. I know there is someone out there who is looking for a kitty just like me to be their companion.

 

Lucy - 8 months old - 

Lucy is a feisty, high energy little ball of love.  She is a smart little girl, as she figured out where a lot of people were and decided to hang out there since she didn’t have a home. She was found at the Post Office, begging for food.  Her rescuer called Stray Cat Blues to see if we had room for one more. Lucy is so grateful to not be hungry, have a soft bed to sleep in with cuddly blankets, toys to play with, and someone to love and pet her. She is incredibly smart.

Lucy has started going to the Petsmart in Collegeville on weekends, if you would like to meet her or fill out an adoption application for her and we can set up a personal meet and greet with you. Lucy looks like a big girl in her pictures but she is small. Her estimated date of birth is 1/20/18.

Thor - 1 to 2 years old - 

Thor is looking sad because he found out that he is FIV positive. 

FIV stands for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus, which means that his immune system is suppressed. Cats with FIV can live long, happy, healthy lives given good food and an indoor environment. Despite the diagnosis, Thor is glad he is now an indoor kitty. He gets along with other cats and people. We're not sure about dogs. He is only about a year and a half old. He is frisky, energetic and playful! Orange male cats have very good reputations because of their loving behavior and Thor is no exception!

Wally - 3 years old - 

Wally is a super affectionate, adorable boy that is about 3 years old. He was found outside an elementary school in West Philly eating food from the garbage cans. He was neutered and tested, only to find out that he is FIV positive.  I know that people hear the words FIV, and they don't want cats that have this.  He still deserves a loving home.  He wants to be an indoor kitty, like everyone else.  He loves to finally be able to sleep on a soft blanket and not have to defend himself from other cats for a scrap of food.  He would prefer to be an only cat, so I know someone out there is looking for a single kitty!

We could not do it without you!  Read about some of the wonderful success stories we have had this past year.   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 of Facebook page, and if you support our goals, make a donation.  To donation, please 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.

 

At present, Stray Cat Blues is not taking on new TNR trapping projects, primarily due to not having the volunteers needed to support an effective TNR program. For a list of other groups providing TNR and related services in the Philadelphia and surrounding regions, click here.
