Meow! My name is Sluggy
|Breed:||Domestic Shorthair||Color:||White (Mostly)||Age:||Adult|
I am already neutered, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, and good with cats.
I'm an older guy who made my way to the shelter in the midst of kitten season. Don't get me wrong. I'm no where near decrepit, but I'm sure not a kitten. I know that all too painfully well. Day after day I watch families come in, flock to the kittens, and take them home. No one seems interested in an older gentleman like me. The only people who give me attention are the shelter volunteers, but they are really busy taking care of all the cats and can't give me the quota of love that I require. Sadly, through no fault of my own, I also picked up FiV along the way. I can have a normal life span if someone responsibly cares for me and keeps me healthy. I love to be petted, brushed, and sit on your lap. Come into BCC and spend some time with me and you will see how loveable I truly am. Adopt me! You won't regret it!
More information about Branford Compassion Club
Branford Compassion Club (BCC) is a non-profit feline
rescue organization that serves not only Branford, CT,
but surrounding shoreline towns. The mission of the club
is to provide for the feeding, shelter and care of homeless,
abandoned and feral cats; to educate the public about the
importance of spay/neuter population control, responsible
pet ownership and kindness to animals; and to establish an
ongoing community network to achieve these goals.
Branford Compassion Club was founded in November 1997,
by a handful of compassionate Branford residents concerned
with the growing population of feral cats. The residents
united to form BCC to alleviate the hunger and suffering
of feral cats in this community.
The Branford Compassion Club is an all volunteer organization, and as such we are only able to be open on Saturdays from 11-3. If you need to come in at a different time, please call and we would be happy to set up an appointment with you.
At the Branford Compassion Club, we do require a potential adopter to fill out an application, which includes vet history and references, and is then reviewed by an officer of the shelter. Adoptions may happen the same day, if possible. There is an adoption fee of 125$ for adult cats and 150$ for kittens, this fee helps to offset the cost of all the medical procedures done prior to adoption such as:
Medically checked by a veterinarian
Tested for Feline Leukemia and Feline AIDS
De-wormed and De-fleaed
Vaccinated against Distemper and Rabies (over 3 months of age)
The adoption fee also helps us to intake another cat once the space from your new family member opens up.
