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...

Friday, August 26th thru Sunday, August 28th - Buy your discount passes now from Stray Cat Blues!!

Passes available at our Petsmart locations during weekend adoption hours, or email savingstrays@yahoo.com for more information.

 

You pay $5 for your pass that gives you 25% off all day, all weekend, on purchases made at any Macy's store, from Fri., Aug. 26th through Sun., Aug. 28th.  (Stray Cat Blues gets to keep the $5.  So you are helping the kitties!)

 

Back to School will be starting soon so it's a great opportunity to take advantage of the savings. The 25% savings also applies to all sales and clearance items. Think of all those summer clothes on sale! Plus, the Fall season is just around the corner, so if you're in need of new Fall clothes, this is the time to buy. Let's not forget Birthday presents. You can also do your Christmas shopping early or just treat yourself to something, cause you deserve it!

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!

 

WE NEED YOU!  

 

Stray Cat Blues, Inc. Is Seeking To Recruit Two Additional Volunteer Advisors For Our Board Of Directors

 

Stray Cat Blues is in search of a marketing/ business development professional to help us enhance our fundraising efforts, and an attorney versed in animal protection laws. If you or someone you know  ts that description, please contact:

 

Mr. Jerry Kalick (215) 631-1851

Please take a look at Missy!  This special cat needs a home!

 

Missy was adopted as a kitten and recently returned to Stray Cat Blues after thirteen years. The people that initially adopted had her cruelly declawed. And along the way she developed hyperthyroidism. She needs medication twice a day to control this condition. In spite of all this, Missy is a sweet and gentle cat.

 

Missy is otherwise healthy, spayed, up to date on vaccinations, microchipped, and has been bathed and groomed. She requires regular brushing to help maintain her long hair.

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. :)

Cats of the Month

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.
