Geraldine came to me unplanned and unannounced.  I went walking to get my mail and I heard horrible wailing cat cries.  I walked a few houses down and saw a cat tied to a porch with a bungee cord rope around its back legs.   The resident of the house told me it had belonged to a neighbor that moved out a few days before but left a this cat behind.  The property manager had told the resident to remove the cat and he had planned to take the cat and drop it at a farm he knew of.  Knowing that tame cats dropped at farms don't always fare so well and wander the roads only to meet an untimely end,  but knowing I didn't really have room for one more, I was at a loss at what to do.

......... I made room for one more. 

This is Geraldine.  She didn't ask to be left behind.  She is one of the sweetest things Iv'e ever seen.  She loves to sit on my lap and purr like a motor boat.  She is getting used to the other cats in the room, and she loves to eat.  

She is now spayed and treated for the fleas her former owner let her keep til she was scabbed from scratching.   She is starting to put on weight and  with a good diet should fill out well and recover from her rough start.  

Can you give Geraldine her forever home and a happy ending?  

UPDATE: 

Geraldine was adopted and given a second chance, but the adopter returned her to us citing litterbox issues.  Geraldine was taken to the vet, who said she had a raring urinary tract infection.  We treated her infection with several antibiotics and then another antibiotic injection.  She is still her lovable self, but this time she is looking for a home that will stick with her thru thick and thin, and so can you be her forever family?  Third time is the charm !

More about this rescue

We seek to rescue the abandoned, the unwanted, the unloved - the cats that need us. - To care for and provide a loving, cage free home for cats awaiting adoption. - To reduce euthanasia in overcrowded shelters by taking in cats that need more TLC. - To educate the public about proper and responsible care of domestic companion animals. Kitty Colony was founded in Lancaster County, PA. A cat lover since childhood, I was heartbroken at the lack of care given to the barn cats on the farm where I was residing. I coudn't understand the philosophy of many of the farmers - "You don't feed Mousers" How can a cat chase mice if weak and emaciated from lack of proper nutrition or water? A healthy cat chases mice for sport - and will catch more than its unfed counterparts. We started putting out food and water for the few cats that wandered through and were soon pulled into rescue work as the cats began to colonize and multiply on the property. The first few litters of kittens we cared for ourselves - We were able to tame and adopt out several and family pitched in to help foster the kittens when we couldn't. As the colony continued to grow, we enlisted the help of PAWS Volunteers to help with the trapping and spaying/neutering of the cats, and several members assisted in fostering and socializing the kittens. Several of our socialized cats and kittens were adopted through a PAWS Petsmart Adoption center, others were incorporated into the Catworks Inc. or adopted out privately by PAWS volunteers. I nicknamed my little family of cats "Kitty Colony" and put together a personal Kodak webpage to share my pictures with friends and to help advertise and adopt the socialized cats and kittens there on the farm and fostered by my family. When we moved from Lancaster County - I couldn't leave my "Barn Babies" - the cats that had been born, and had grown up in the barn - So I took them with me. These cats are still semi feral, or very feral (wild!) and most of them will probably remain so for the rest of thier lives. In that case, I will care for them and love them as much as they will allow me to - but they are now indoor-only and are living the good life - fat and lazy and happy! Here in Jenkintown "Kitty Colony" has become a local rescue group complete with our own adoption program and TNR assistance for those who need it. I also began volunteering and fostering this year for Cats With No Name - a mobile low cost spay/neuter program - and we hope to launch a Cats with No Name adoption program in the near future. So now along with my "Barn Babies" are now many fosters, orphaned kittens, rescued strays, ferals and adoptables- Living in harmony with each other while waiting for thier forever families to find them.
