These two lovebugs were found by a very kind neighbor in her front yard last week. No one in the neighborhood recognizes them, so we suspect they may have been left there to fend for themselves.
Our kind Eagle neighbors Lindsay & Vickie reached out to Eagle Community Cats for help.
These little boys are very tired and clearly relieved to be safe, fed and cozy. They are total lap cats and purr non-stop.
They will be fostered with Eagle Community Cats until they can go to Simply Cats. We hope to find them an indoor only home together as they are very bonded and love each other.
We sure have some incredibly compassionate neighbors in our community! In one particular subdivision we had more than 4 families that didn’t know each other individually reach out to Eagle Community Cats for help with a mama and kittens they kept noticing around the neighborhood.
Over the last several weeks the help of those kind neighbors, we have managed to rescue a total of 5 kittens so far. We are still working on getting the last ones and mama cat. We are calling them the “Creek Kittens”.
These kittens are being fostered and given the ultimate TLC experience from our neighbor Tammy and her daughters! They have poured love and cuddles into them!
These cuties are going to Simply Cats where they will be looking for indoor only homes (they’ve had enough of the outdoor life). We hope to see a couple of them go to homes together, as they are very bonded. If you are interested in the meantime, feel free to reach out to us!
At the end of May, Eagle Community Cats was notified of some kittens seen near the greenbelt. After several nights of scouting out the area, we were able to rescue 4 kittens. The kittens were skinny and feral but after lots of time, patience, handling and TLC they are now healthy, happy go lucky little kittens! We are still working on getting their mama.
The kittens are now ready for a happy & safe life with a family instead of trying to survive by the river. Yesterday they were transferred to Simply Cats. They will be fixed, vaccinated, microchipped and given any additional medical care they need before they are ready for adoption.
Please consider supporting the care of “Eagle River Kittens” with Simply Cats and/or Eagle Community Cats.
Eagle Community Cats is a volunteer group that has rescued over 100 kittens from Eagle this year, not counting adult cats. If you see a mama cat or kittens, please leave them alone and contact us right away. Most of the time mama cat isn’t far away. We will carefully assess the situation and make every effort to rescue the entire family. If mama is disturbed she may move the kittens before we can get there.
This small kitten was rescued in downtown Eagle last night. Our very nice neighbor Christina noticed the kitten earlier in the day hanging around her house following her cat and called Eagle Community Cats for help.
With Christina’s help, Eagle Community Cats was able to catch the kitten. It was very dehydrated, thin and extremely scared. After one night of TLC, the kitten is purring and very talkative, as if it wants to tell us all about what it has been through. We are on the lookout because we suspect it may have a mama and littermates nearby.
We are naming the kitten Houdini because it briefly escaped in our volunteers garage last night.
Houdini will be fostered with Eagle Community Cats, and when it is fully tamed & socialized and healthy it will be transferred to Simply Cats. Simply Cats will give it comprehensive medical treatment for anything it may need, vaccinate, fix, and microchip it. It will then be ready for a family and a happy future!
Please consider supporting Houdini at Eagle Community Cats and/or Simply Cats. Eagle Community Cats has rescued over 100 kittens this year in Eagle.
This week after a full day of effort, Eagle Community Cats successfully rescued a mama and 5 kittens from a Eagle neighbor’s backyard. The mama had made a nest safely tucked in a shed on the side of the house. We have fondly named her Mama Cass.
The kittens are gorgeous and sweet and are already taming up quickly. Even though Mama Cass is feral and scared of humans, she is so relieved to be safe and fed that she’s even letting us handle her kittens without a complaint.
The whole family will be fostered until mama weans them. Mama Cass will be fixed and welcomed & returned to the neighbors yard, where the neighbor will care for her and she will live quietly, happily catching mice with no more kittens in her future. We are so grateful for kind neighbors like Pam who recognized that Mama Cass and her kittens needed help and called us to help.
The kittens will be transferred to Simply Cats in about 3 weeks where they will be fixed, vaccinated, microchipped and have a full medical evaluation before they are available for adoption.
Please consider supporting the care of Mama Cass & her babies with Eagle Community Cats and/or Simply Cats.
Last week, Eagle Community Cats received a call from Eagle neighbors Bill and Susan who noticed a mama cat with one kitten near a shed.
With their help quietly on lookout we determined there were more kittens. We were able to rescue Mama cat and 4 kittens.
Mama cat was in some distress when we got her. She is feral and thin and overall healthy, but had a very painful eye wound. In spite of that she raised her 4 kittens all on her own! Her eye was so bad that we had it evaluated by a vet and the vet confirmed that the best thing to do would be to have it removed. We named her Winky! 😉
Winky has been fixed, injured eye removed & patched up, and after some recovery time and TLC, she was released to live out her life quietly with no more pain, no more kittens in her future and a kind neighbor to support her.
All of Winky’s kittens are taming up very well. They were healthy but skinny and hungry. The kittens are about 9-10 weeks old and generally would have been weaned, but mama cat was still nursing them because of lack of a food source.
All 4 kittens are being fostered by Eagle Community Cats and will eventually go to Simply Cats when ready. They will be fixed, vaccinated, microchipped and have a full vet evaluation for anything they need before they are available for adoption. In fact the black, male kitten we fondly named Mr. Bean was taken to Simply Cats today and will be up for adoption soon! He’s a ball of fun - he loves to play non stop!
Please consider supporting Winky’s kittens at Simply Cats and/or Eagle Community Cats.
The Eagle Community Cat volunteers rescued this little cluster of kittens and their mama last night from a construction site that was being torn down and taken to the dump here in Eagle. Luckily the workers noticed the kittens at the bottom of a cart of junk before hauling it off and called for help. They are less than a week old! All are safe, warm and will get lots of TLC.
This is kitten season - if you see kittens please leave them alone and reach out for help. If the mama is disturbed she may move the kittens before we can arrive. It’s always best to try to get the mama cat too even if she’s feral so she can give them the best care possible. We can help.
These babies will eventually go to Simply Cats when they are old enough. They will be fixed, vaccinated, microchipped and have a full vet health evaluation before they are ready for adoption. The cost of medical care per kitten is a minimum of $150 per kitten/cat, on top of the cost of care while in foster with Eagle Community Cats. The adoption fees they ask when adopting them to a family are less than the cost of care. If donating to Simply Cats, add a message it is for the “ECC construction kittens”. Mama cat will be fixed and returned & supported to live her life quietly with no more kittens in her future.
