Rachel's Story...
Alas, the country’s poor economy is taking a toll on our four-legged friends. Ross and Rachel, now nearly three years old, were adopted when they were still kittens. Recently, their owners had a financial hardship and were facing possible foreclosure. Unsure where the bad economy would lead them, they felt it would be best for Ross and Rachel to return to Stray Cat Blues.

Ross and Rachel were originally rescued in a 2006 Pennsburg Trap-Neuter-Return project. Their mother had been dumped at the site and gave birth (approximately May 2006) to four kittens. Mama took excellent care of them until we stepped in. Mama and kittens were tested for FIV/FeLV (all negative) and received their needed shots. Then all went to foster homes and found what they hoped would be their forever homes.

Sadly, Ross and Rachel are seeking someone to love them once again. Having been together for nearly three years, we would like the duo to stay together. Unconditional love doubled can’t be a bad thing.

Rachel is a long-haired brown tabby girl. She loves bird watching at the window. Ross is a short-haired gray tabby boy. He is never very far from Rachel’s side. Rumor has it that Rachel can handle dogs, but Ross can’t, so we wouldn’t advise moving into a home with a dog. Neither have been exposed to children.

Make sure to have a scratching post – they both use it. Both will let you pick them up, but are not cuddle bugs. Scruff them, cuddle them, love them. They need to re-learn that humans can be trusted.

They like having crunchies available to them all day, but absolutely LOVE canned food which they get every morning. Giving them their canned food has helped in gaining their trust and easing their pain of “homelessness”. They are committed to using the litter box. They like to play with toys mostly without human help.

The two were very frightened when they were returned. They have had some needed time-out and can now face the world again. They are ready for their “for real” forever home.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rachel, a Colmar Maine Coon cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Maine Coon for sale in Colmar, or seeking a Maine Coon cat from a breeder in Colmar.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Colmar already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Colmar breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Maine Coon breeders who help with Maine Coon rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Colmar paves the way for another one to be saved.
