A Daring Rescue!

 

On Wednesday 8-5-15, a concerned woman contacted Stray Cat Blues and the Upper Gwynedd Police Department, reporting hearing a cat meowing in a storm drain along Allentown Road near Sumneytown Pike. The Upper Gwynedd Public Works Dept. and UGPD removed several storm drain covers before locating the source, a very young kitten in a small pipe. After about 24 hours of trying to coax it into a safe catch trap we were successful. The very young black and white kitten was removed and turned over to Stray Cat Blues who will arrange for a veterinary check and eventual adoption. What a team effort! Thank you Upper Gwynedd Public Works, Upper Gwynedd Police, and our fantastic Stray Cat Blues trapper Mallory!

Cats of the Month

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

***************

"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.

***************

Gwen was adopted from Stray Cat Blues as a kitten. She was with the same family for nearly six years, but was sadly returned to a Stray Cat Blues foster home when the oldest child in the family developed serious allergies to cats. In her adoptive family, she was best friends with the family dogs and could be carried around by the children – showing no aggression.

Gwen is a smart and adaptable kitty who adjusted quickly to her foster home. In no time, she learned where to find her food and water, her litter box, and the most comfy spots for a cat nap. In between naps, she enjoys following her foster mom around the house, looking out the window, and playing. Her favorite toys are a turbo scratcher, a little yellow dog filled with catnip, and just about any toy that has feathers on it. She thinks paper bags are pretty cool, too.

A friendly girl with a gentle and even-tempered nature, Gwen likes being brushed and getting scratches from her human. She will surprise you with a visit when you least expect it. The quintesential cool cat, Gwen will greet you, hang around for some scratches and kisses, and maybe even let you hold her for a bit – but she probably won't stay to snuggle. Instead, she will curl up nearby where she can watch your every move – until the next visit. At night, she's content to sleep quietly at the end of the bed, but this is not a requirement. A loving, permanent home is Gwen's number one priority.

Gwen is spayed, litter trained, FeLV and FIV negative, and up to date on her rabies and distemper vaccines. She is approximately 5 years old.
