Born June 2014

Are you a cat whisperer?  Do you have the patience for a kitty that's lost his only ever known home?  Then come meet Bobby!  

Bobby had one human caring for him all of his short life of one year.  He was always playful, friendly and loving with his person as she had found him as a stray kitten and raised him. The wonderful lady took him in and got him veterinary care and vaccines and he was living the high life! 

Then, the sweet lady became terminally ill with that 'C-word' disease. She could no longer care for him or his playmate and she had to go into the hospital.   They were surrendered to rescue and put in a store habitat for adoption.  Both were extremely scared. They had never been outside.  Always been gently loved on.  Never been caged and certainly never had people sticking their fingers at them.   Poor Bobby was very afraid.

Soon, someone extremely caring and loving adopted his playmate so Bobby found himself alone in a cage where people walked by and made funny noises, poked at him through the door and wondered why he would back off and hiss. He had to be removed from the store habitat. Therefore, Companion Connection took him in.

Each day Bobby responded to me a little more and after a week or so, I was able to hold him and love on him.   So, I let him out with the regular cat population.  He gets along so well with the other cats!  He has no fear of other cats!  He will walk in to another cat room without hesitation just to see what that room is all about.  He explores everywhere, is polite to all and he comes to me as soon as I walk in the sanctuary wanting attention and love.  He even reaches down to gently grab my arm to pull to his face for petting.

Bobby may initially shy away again with a new person, but he will respond quickly to an individual that will take the time to get to know him.  It only took a few visits from my husband for Bobby to get comfortable with him.

Please, if you want a young cat that really needs and desires to be loved and cherished, please come meet Bobby. Get to know one another. He is waiting for you to give him the best furever home possible!
 

About Companion Connection

About Our Rescue Group...

We are an Elgin based rescue group made up of volunteers that strives to help reduce the number of loving companion animals that die each day in local shelters due to lack of space and lack of a suitable home.
Currently, there is a three-room sanctuary for cats that has protected outside access for our feline friends. And there is a large, fenced kennel for the dogs with a large fenced play area. Because of the limited space, we cannot take in every animal that comes our way, but we do everything we can to get the animal off the street and into a shelter (if not our own) or foster care. We strive to improve the lives of abused, abandoned and neglected companion animals.
Companion Connection promotes spay and neuter programs as well as the Trap-Neuter-Return program as the only humane method of effectively reducing the feral cat population.
The majority of our companion animals are rescues. They have been saved from abandonment, neglect or abuse. Therefore, many have “special needs” ranging from emotional—needing extra time to get to know you—to dietary needs. Our animals are free to roam about their shelter areas rather than being caged. It is a different type of environment than the typical shelter so the animals are happier and therefore, healthy.
Companion Connection is committed to ensuring humane care and treatment of all animals, protecting the public health and welfare of the citizens of Bastrop County, through education and enforcement of State laws and local orders and showing respect and compassion to all. We promote spay and neuter programs as well as the Trap-Neuter-Return program as the only humane method of effectively reducing the feral cat population.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Animals can be visited at the shelter in Elgin, TX with appointments. Adoption events are usually on Sunday afternoons at PetSmart on IH35 and Parmer.

Our Adoption Process...

Companion Connection has their adoption application on the website, or can be emailed or faxed. Once the application has been reviewed and references checked, a home visit is conducted to ensure the potential adopter's home is ready for the dog or cat being adopted: food area, sleep area; safe environment, fencing, etc. Fees vary for dogs ($50-75) determined by age and/or size and cats are around $40.
