Facts about Christabelle

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Brown Tabby
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 5694SP
  • Hair: Short
Christabelle is a super sweet girl about 4-5 years old. She came to me as a foster kitty with a litter of babies back in August 2010 she was a great Momma to her babies. Since then Christabelle developed what is called Rhinotracheitis, which was caused by a herpes virus. Rhino is contagious only to cats. What it does is it leaves Christabelle with a chronic ongoing congestion of her upper airway ( trachea and nasal passages) so most all the time she will sound congested. She will cough off and on from time to time, on occassion she will sometimes but not very much cough up mucous from her nose. Some Rhino cats do that a lot, Christabelle does not. Although at times she will sound terrible. It's a chronic condition. It does not go away. Other than that she is fine except that due to having to have been kept in her playpen as I have my own cats in the home and she is contagious, she is overweight as she doesn't get the exercise she needs.

Chrissy's medical needs are - she should have a tracheal/nasal wash procedure done about every 4 months, (3 times a year) have L- Lysine added to her diet daily, and if and when she sounds severly congested she can be placed on an antibiotic from the vet.

About Stray Cat Blues

About Our Rescue Group...

Officially, Stray Cat Blues, Inc. is a no-kill, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization providing rescue and placement to stray, abandoned, and feral cats. Personally, SCB is a small group of dedicated volunteers who work tirelessly to find loving, life-long homes for cats. We are professional in our practices, but we are emotional on the subject of homeless cats, and the ways in which we humans can work to prevent this epidemic of strays.

Stray Cat Blues actively works to find permanent homes for the stray cats in our program. Our kittens and cats are exposed to the pet-loving public at our different adoption locations (see Come Meet our Pets section below) to facilitate adoptions and to provide visibility for our organization. Our cats can also be seen online at www.adoptapet.com.

Most of our cats offered for adoption are strays and their offspring that are rescued off the streets.

For those stray cats that are more wary of humans, especially feral cats, we can help humanely trap, sterilize and either return them if the area they live in is safe and they are being fed, or we house them and adopt them out as barn cats.

Our Adoption Process...

We require an application with vet references or a home visit. All the animals are screened for feline leukemia and FIV, inoculated, sterilized and wormed when they first come to us. Healthy, adoptable cats and kittens are then housed through our network of foster homes. Our adoption fee is only $95. (Fee can be paid by cash or check at our Petsmart North Wales/Montgomeryville location. At our Collegeville location, the fee can be paid by cash, check, or credit card.)

If you are interested in adopting a cat, you can find our online adoption application at our website - www.straycatblues.org. On the side of the page there is a section labeled Quick Adoption Links. Click on the link for application to adopt a House Cat. Click on this link, fill out this short form, and be sure to click Submit at the bottom. One of our Adoption Reps will then contact you within a couple of days to guide you through the adoption process.

Alternately you can complete a paper application at Petsmart when we have SCB volunteers present (see times for adoption showings). Questions - email us at: savingstrays@yahoo.com. We are happy to answer general questions, and also put you in touch with the foster families for questions about specific cats.
