April 8th, 2015 Update
Jan of the Community Cat Coalition emailed us the following update, “A wonderful couple met Emma and Nellie, filled out an application, and will be adopting them today. It was meant to be. I think it will be a perfect match.”
With input from our friends at the Community Cat Coalition, each week we will be featuring a cat that needs a loving home.
Emma and Nellie are two sisters that are very bonded and will need to be adopted together. They have been together since birth but their owner moved away and left them.
Both of them are the most docile and easygoing cats you will ever meet. They are not biters or scratchers and love people.
Nellie seems to be the leader of the two, but they both join in to play together. Emma and Nellie love to be brushed and petted. Neither of them meow much, are just happy to be inside, and do not require a lot of attention.
They would not be likely to run and hide when guests come over but would be happy to greet people to give their love and affection.
They are two to three years old and are overweight, because they were only given inexpensive dry food to eat. Both will need a high quality canned food that is grain free to help them with their weight loss goals. They are not big eaters!
Although each one weighs 14 pounds, with a little exercise and the right kind of food, they will achieve a normal weight for them.
Emma and Nellie just need a caring person to love them and give them a second chance.
Both girls are spayed, up-to-date on vaccines, wormed, flea rx, tested negative for Felv/FIV and microchipped.

About the Community Cat Coalition:
The Community Cat Coalition (CCC) was formed in November 2011 when a few people realized that if rescue groups, shelters, and independent rescuers work together, we can make a positive change in the lives of our community cats.
The CCC is an all volunteer organization . All funds go toward the efforts of TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return) – paying for spay/neuters, vaccines, medical care for injured/sick free roaming cats, or the costs of fostering the kittens who are removed from the sites.
Our goal is to educate interested people in our area so there is a common understanding of what a community cat is (they may be feral, semi-feral, or abandoned/stray tame cats – any free roaming cat) and how to care for them.
The community cats belong to no one person – they belong to all of us. This concept is taking hold worldwide, and we CAN make a difference right here, in our communities.
We provide classes in basic TNR, (Trap-Neuter-Return) open to the public and all shelters/rescues. We give people the tools to do TNR safely and effectively, and we also simply involve them in the care of the community cats.
We also offer classes on related topics, such as care of bottle babies, taming feral kittens, and how to do a barn relocation. All classes are free.
We are excited to be in the middle of this movement - TNR and care of the community cats is a worldwide phenomena and is rapidly gaining in popularity.
