Alumni Tails: Friendly's family

Friendly
Friendly

Tiffany contacted FCCO about a cat she first noticed mid-winter. He was a kitten at the time; she began feeding him and named him Friendly. Though feral, he approached Tiffany during feeding times and all seemed good.

Spring came and another cat arrived. Tiffany put out more food, but soon noticed that this other cat was growing. She was quite pregnant and had a litter of four kittens. One cat was easy; six was more than Tiffany could manage.

Now spayed/neutered, Friendly and Mama are healthy, vaccinated cats who will continue to be fed by Tiffany but will no longer be part of the breeding cycle. Tiffany made arrangements for the kittens so that they, too, will be spayed/neutered and have homes.

We are grateful to caregivers like Tiffany who recognize a cat in need and make a commitment to giving them a better life. Our work to help the cats - and their caregivers - is possible because of your support. Thank you!  >^..^<

Alumni Tails: Mama cat's breeding days are over

Carol and Michael of Vancouver, WA, contacted us after discovering how quickly cats can multiply. They told us, "We started out with two neighborhood cats. One became friendly over time and started living with us inside as a pet. The other had kittens... and started our little population explosion."

Right away Carol and Michael were able to trap and bring seven cats and kittens to our spay/neuter clinic, but Mama cat evaded all their efforts. Finally - success!

Carol told us, "We've been trying to get her for the last eight months. Every time we would bring home the trap she would disappear. This time she stayed around but was refusing to eat. Hunger finally won out last night! So after three litters that we know of (10 kittens), her breeding days are over."
FCCO's services for feral and stray cats allow kind people like Carol and Michael to continue to care for feral and stray cats living among them without worry that the cats will keep producing more mouths to feed. We have helped nearly 80,000 cats - funded 100% by donations.

Purrs of thanks to you. We sincerely appreciate your support of the Feral Cat Coalition of Oregon (FCCO) and your commitment to our work. Contributions to our program and services for feral and stray cats are an important reason why in 2015, our 20th year in operation, we were able to spay/neuter 6,048 feral and stray cats, forever improving their lives. We are truly grateful!

 Your support helped with many achievements in 2015:

  • The year began by helping a single colony of 31 cats from Scappoose, OR, and in October we spayed/neutered 167 cats from Othello, WA, at a special two-day clinic.
  • A pilot “transport clinic” program was implemented to assist caregivers unable to get cats to and from our clinic.
  • The Catio Tour, a joint effort with the Audubon Society of Portland, registered 1,076 participants interested in learning about ways to keep cats safe at home.
  • Season’s Feedings, our annual cat food drive, collected close to 2,000 pounds of food to assist caregivers feeding feral and stray cats.
  • And last but far from least, we purchased, renovated, and moved into our new home. It is here in this new facility where, because of your support, we will create a better future for the cats.

Thank you again for all you do for the cats. Donors like you make our work possible. We hope we can count on your continued support!
