Facts about Luke

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Tiger Striped
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
Luke was born February 2016 (approx) in a busy mall parking lot by an abandoned mama cat. He was rescued off the streets of Covina by The TNR Project after someone who worked at the mall began feeding him and his sister, Leia. They were living underneath a trash compactor to keep warm and protected. Luke is what I call a "veclro" cat. He follows you everywhere, wants to be with you all the time and wants to sit with you no matter when. He likes to use his paws to pull your hands to his face for pets. He is a big boy who is a bigger sweetheart. His coloring is beautiful and he has these neat little tufts of hair off the corners of his ears. which makes him look like a little "Linx". This little kitten will warm your heart and is nothing short of amazing. He is friendly little guy who gets sweeter and more loving with each day. He and his sister Leia would love to go together, however, they have also grown independent enough to be adopted independently of each other.

Luke loves to play with furry mice, wine corks and toilet paper rolls doused with catnip. He is a great traveler in a carrier but does get shy at adoptions with all the commotion. He is wonderful with one of our fosters daughter who has Down Syndrome and very gentle. However, we have never tested him with dogs. The parking lot he was living in was scoured nightly by coyotes eating neighborhood cats...so not sure how well that would go over. I do believe that if he bonded with you, he would put up with anything. I actually think Luke would enjoy a dog of his own....lol. We would love to find him a home ASAP so he can bond with you!

* Date of Birth: February 2016 (approx)
* Color/Breed: Brown Tabby with White, Golden Eyes
* Litterbox Trained
* FELV/FIV Negative

About The TNR Project

About Our Rescue Group...

The TNR Project humanely & successfully performs TNR which stands for Trap-Neuter-Return. We are a 100% grassroots community movement of volunteers. TNR has been proven to stem community cat growth & overpopulation by controlling the numbers of unwanted cats & kittens on the streets and keep them out of the shelters. We TNR 1000+ cats & kittens every year since 2015. We have classes with FixNation & Alley Cat Allies 3-4x a year to help train people who want to make a difference in their community and to the felines they see. All of the cats & kittens you see here on our site have been born on the streets, abandoned, left to die or worse. They were all community street cats before we stepped in to save them. We do not pull from shelters. We believe that by staying on the streets which is Ground Zero, we will make the difference people are so desperately hoping for....No-Kill Shelters. One shelter we work with experienced a 40% intake decline of cats after we started working their communities. What we prevent from being born on the streets doesn't end up in shelters, being surrendered, being abandoned, clogging the rescues or breeding several times a year with unwanted kittens. We want cats & kittens currently in rescues & shelters to have MORE time available to them to get into a great home...not euthanasia!
We walk the talk and do good where it's needed...on the streets! If you would like more information on TNR or learn how you can help your community cats, please visit: www.thetnrproject.org and fill out a contact us/join us form. Save a stray, save a life! Thank you for rescuing!!

FACT: A mama cat can go into heat again when kittens are 4 weeks old
FACT: A kitten is of breeding age at 16 weeks old (4 months)
FACT: A female cat will go into heat every 2 weeks until mated
FACT: Once pregnant, a female cat will have that litter in 2 months (64 day gestation)
FACT: Once a male is neutered, it significantly decreases the yowling, spraying, fighting & wandering
FACT: Feral cats & kittens don't stand a chance at the shelters due to under-funding, lack of staff and fosters...they are almost 100% of the time euthanized
FACT: Only 2 out of 10 cats usually make it out of the shelters alive, which means 80% of cats entering shelters are euthanized...those are the social ones.
FACT: Black cats are 80% less likely to be adopted due to superstition? Black cats have some of the most intelligent, social personalities around!

DID YOU KNOW: Cats can be written off your taxes as natural pest control for your home or office? Don't use pesticides!
DID YOU KNOW: You can de-flea your property by using beneficial nematodes which are the natural predator to fleas?
DID YOU KNOW: Cats not only take care of rats & insects, they thwart gophers and squirrels?
DID YOU KNOW: It's not always cats who are pooping in your yard? Can you tell the difference between skunk, opossum, raccoon, coyote, dog and cat feces?.
