Home Forums Announcements URGENT FOSTER APPEAL FOR 10 CATS


Announcements March 25, 2013 at 11:40 am



The following adoption/foster request is from the Palisades list serve. Those interested in helping can contact Kim Deserio ([email protected]). Thanks!!

I am forwarding this message on behalf of a friend who volunteers with MCSPCA. She is trying to find temporary or permanent homes for several cats belonging to a homeowner facing eviction due to overwhelming medical expenses.

UPDATE on the 10 cats facing homelessness:

While the owner tried to negotiate for more time, he informed me last night that he has to vacate by this Wed., 3/27, so the situation remains urgent. 3 of the cats have found foster homes, but as of right now, the cats still available for foster or adoption are:

Muffin — DLH tortie, almost 13, indoor only
Screamer — DSH light orange/white, almost 13 (sister of Muffin), indoor only
Stripes — big DSH orange/white, M, about 8, mostly indoor
Skinny — DSH calico, 7, indoor-outdoor
White Socks — DSH grey/white, F, about 9, mostly outdoor
**Buddy Lee –  DSH grey, M, about 9, mostly indoor
**Speckles — DSH calico, about 9, indoor only

** There’s a family interested in Buddy Lee or Speckles — they haven’t decided which cat yet.

The cats all appear to be in good shape, other than some crumpled ears from untreated ear mites.  But they haven’t had any vet care in 6 years, so the SPCA would make sure they get physical exams, update their vaccs, and prob. run bloodwork on the older cats to see if they have any issues that need to be addressed.

In 2006, the MCSPCA helped the owner when he had 24 cats and kittens, by getting them all spayed/neutered and placing the kittens. Now he has been forced to sell his home to pay for the care of his elderly mother, and he will be moving into subsidized housing where he cannot bring the cats. It would be tragic if these innocent animals ended up at the county shelter, where there is a high probability that they would be killed. 

The cats range in age from 6 years to 13 years. We need help and quickly! 
Can you foster a cat or a pair of cats? 
Do you know someone who might be able to foster (or is looking to adopt)? 
Can you share this appeal with your email list? On your Facebook page? 

Thank you to everyone who has shared our appeal. Please let your mailing list know that we could still use some help.
