Home for the Holidays

It's that time of year again! The Community Cat Coalition (CCC) holds it's annual Home for the Holidays cat adoption event! Kathleen, our amazing outreach and fundraising organizer, somehow gets usage of an empty store front donated for us to use for the month leading up to Christmas! The CCC itself doesn't have any cats but part of it's mission is to help independent rescuers find homes for adoptable cats. These cats have been either tamed ferals or more than likely, abandoned or lost pets where their owners were not able to be found.

I love being around these amazing cat rescue people! The local community cats are very fortunate to have such kind, generous people who are willing to invest huge amounts of time, energy, and funds to make the cats' lives better.

Each of these cats are getting a second (or third, fourth...) chance at a forever home!

Paisley is a sweet, gorgeous, super friendly 3-year old girl!
She has a little white tip on the end of that luscious black tail!

Petunia is quite talkative and bold!

Winky lost an eye to a terrible infection, but she's ready for a home!

I'm always partial to little Oliver-like kitties!

Claire is 12-years old and she got adopted a few hours after I took her picture! Go Claire!!! I heard that on the first day of this year's event seven cats found their forever homes!
I'm grateful to not have any rescue kitties looking for homes this year. I love visiting this event but finding homes for my rescue cats is terribly stressful for me. I want each cat to find the most perfect home ever, so have to thoroughly interrogate each potential adopter. I'm happy to visit the Home for the Holidays adoption event and love on the kitties awaiting their new homes, oh and visiting with the people is fun too!


  1. Congratulations to those who found forever homes, and purrs to everyone remaining that they do too.

  2. This is the coolest adoption event ever! CCC is doing all the right things, imho. And I've fallen in love with Winky already; such a cute name! Am too far away to attend, but if I was closer, I'd be visiting these kitties.

  3. We hope the forever homes keep on coming!

  4. I'm so happy for many of them and hope all of them get adopted so soon

  5. I love seeing pictures of the babies and how well they look and are. May they all find their homes and be loved.

  6. Such a great event! My new rescue kitty is happy to have found her furever home and so am I!!

  7. I just got the numbers from the first weekend of HFTH - 14 cats and kittens found their forever homes!! And $2,000 was raised in donations. Sounds like a success to me! Yah!

  8. love this!! Hoping all of the kitties find their furever homes!! Just read above 14 did? That's pawesome!! catchatwithcarenandcody
