Important Note

Peter is best friends with Paul. Please adopt both of them so they can stay together!

I am already neutered, up to date with shots, tested negative for FELV/FIV, good with kids and cats, not sure about dogs, and litter box trained.

Peter is a very gentle cat. He is a bit on the large size (compared to his best friends Paul and Patrick). He is a gray and white short hair and has an adorable bright white tipped tail. He adores being brushed and can be a bit of a couch potato. By that we mean that since he is an older cat (approx. 8 years young), and he won't put you through the crazy cat frenzies like younger cats. His friend, Paul, (his big-time pal) is younger and more playful. Paul (gray and white short hair) is approx. 5 years old and fully vetted as well. Peter, Paul, and Patrick give one another head bumps and are so grateful that they are safe. Patrick (black and white short hair, approx. 5 years old) is happy to be with his two pals as Patrick was very scared when he first arrived.

All three boys were once house cats until their rescuer died. The house was sold and they managed to survive one and one-half winters. So,... actually these great boys were rescued a second time! All three boys (and our senior girl, Natalie), are living in a 8 x 10 foot wood shed until they find their forever home. Access to the shed will be extremely treacherous for their foster mom if we get a huge snow storm. We are hoping to find placement for these cats before winter arrives. They have already been waiting for a home for over 8 months now.

About Communities Altering The Strays (CATS)

About Our Rescue Group...

We are all volunteers in this group. Donations allow us to continue our work so that thousands of kittens are not born every year to feral and stray cats.

We organized this group because we do not agree that killing healthy animals is the answer to the pet population problem. We also believe that feral cats have the right to live. We provide education and assistance to people that want to trap cats and get them sterilized and vaccinated.

We make ourselves available to the independent feral cat caretaker, and independent cat owner, and help publicize their adoptable kittens and cats on our web site and at fund raising events.

During the last several years, our organization has prevented hundreds of thousands of kitten births, and helped find hundreds of homes for cats and kittens.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Adopters can visit cats in their foster homes, and all arrangements are made with the foster family as to date and time of visit.

Private, in-home visits, can also be arranged in the adopter's home, especially if several cats are appealing to the adopter.

Our Adoption Process...

We require a pre-adoption application which supplies information to us about the type of cat that would be suitable for the adopter and the home environment.

We visit the home with our cats (cats that interest the adopter, and cats that we believe may be a good match for the adopter). We have a leisurely visit with the potential adopter and we all observe the reactions of the cats with the people, and reactions of the people to the cats.

Our fees are below $100 and all cats are sterilized, have received age-appropriate vaccinations, were tested for FELV/FIV, wormed, treated for fleas, and most are microchipped.

We do not allow declawing of our cats,and all cats are adopted as indoor-only pets. Under certain circumstances we will adopt out cats that are suitable as barn cats.
