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.
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. Since Stray Cat Blues does not have a physical shelter building, we are always in need of caring, compassionate people willing to offer their homes as a temporary safe haven until our kitties find their forever families. We also work hard to help people with community cats (strays and ferals), and we would love to be able to answer all of the requests that we receive, but to do so, we need to expand our team of trappers.
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.
From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for all of your support! Now back to kitten snuggling...we sure hope you will join us. :)
Historic Bethlehem Pike Give Back Program in Flourtown, April 21-23

Cats on Mats
The Cats on Mats Event at Moyo Yoga Studio this past Saturday was a huge success, not to mention a lot of fun! We don't know who had more fun, the kitties running around or the attendees! The yoga session was far from tranquil, as one would think it would be. Between the opera singing yoga teacher, the kitties running about and giggles from everyone, it couldn't have gone better. The entire staff at Moyo couldn't have been nicer or more welcoming to SCB. They went above and beyond to make this event successful. The nearly 100 attendees were beyond generous with their donations. Thank you to everyone!
Many thanks to Melissa, and Ken from Moyo! Melissa designed and Ken silk screened T-Shirts that they generously donated and sold before and after the event.
And a big shout out to all of our Stray Cat Blues volunteers who helped to facilitate this event. You rock!

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!
We are adding pictures from this rescue on our News page (click here).
Please make a donation to our Shelter Fund to help us buy a building of our own. Click here for more information and to make a donation.
Here are a few cats that you should really take a look at....
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.
