Give a Cat From Tabby's Place Their Forever Home -#RememberMeThursday 2019

Today is a very important day in the rescue/advocacy world. Today is Remember Me Thursday, a day where light is shined on and attention is brought to pets in rescues and shelters waiting for their forever homes. It stresses the importance of animal adoption because 2.7 million orphan shelter pets lose their lives without ever finding their forever homes. Alarmingly, only 30% of household pets in the U.S. come from rescue facilities. Only 30%! That number is disturbing to me. There are so many shelters and rescues in the country that are at full capacity, and cannot take in another animal. That means that animal will most likely remain on the street.

When someone adopts a pet from a shelter, they are actually saving two lives; the life of the pet they adopted, and the pet there is now space for in the shelter. Adopting saves lives! I've written several posts about Remember Me Thursday, which you can catch up on here

Join us in spreading the word today by joining our Blog Hop, or visiting all of the blogs listed below. 

Today I'm shining a light on cats who are waiting for their forever homes at Tabby's Place, a cage-free, no-kill sanctuary in Ringoes, NJ. I've been supporting Tabby's Place since 2011 when I visited for the first time and fell in love. For more information about Tabby's you can visit their website or catch up on my previous posts here. Today is all about the cats, so without further ado, let's meet eight cats patiently awaiting their forever homes. 


Tabby's Place Cats on #RememberMeThursday



Divya

Divya has long been known as our reception cat. She spends most of her day sitting or napping on the reception desk in the lobby of Tabby’s Place. She never misses a meal and is always waiting to greet her morning feeders. Divya does not like to be handled, but she does enjoy gentle head pets (on her terms). She is not particularly fond of other cats but puts up with them as long as they leave her alone. She is a social eater and insists on having a human hold her food tray for her while she eats breakfast. When Divya arrived at Tabby’s Place in 2014, the medical team wasn’t sure that she would make it. When her person passed away, the surviving family didn’t want to care for her so they simply put her outside. Divya didn’t know how to fend for herself and began to starve. Today Divya in a full-figured female kitty of about 10 years of age. She would love to have a person to once again call her own and share mealtime with. (Divya is one of my long-time favorite cats at Tabby's and I always look for her when I visit.)

Snoop

Snoop came to Tabby’s Place in April of 2018 as an older neutered male who weighed in at over 20lbs. He’s always been a friendly guy who frequently curls up on visitor laps. He likes to be the center of attention which is challenging in the weight management suite that has quite a few big personalities. Since he began his carefully managed diet, Snoop has lost about 5 pounds. He seems to be the frequent recipient of injuries from cat fights in his suite. Our volunteers insist that he is being bullied and is not the instigator. He would certainly do best as an only cat. At an estimated 14 years, he is overlooked by most adopters.

Hunts

Hunts came to Tabby’s Place through one of our TNR projects. As a three month old kitten, Hunts was underweight and not well socialized. As he was nursed to full health, we saw potential in him. Now as a young adult, Hunts is still people shy, but he LOVES other cats. He has an old soul and seems to bond best with older mature cats. From them he has learned to appreciate the attention that humans can give. Hunts will never enjoy being picked up and cuddled, but he loves to snuggle with other kitties and would make a great addition to a home with human patience.

Candace

Candace currently holds the title of heaviest cat at Tabby’s Place. She can be sweet and affectionate when she chooses, but she has a feisty side. She does not particularly like other felines so was removed from the weight management suite and moved to the lounge of Tabby’s. Here she is one of only 5 cats. Despite numerous attempts at dietary adjustment and regulation, Candace does not lose weight. She has lived at Tabby’s Place for about three years. She is all black with white whiskers.

Oscar

Oscar was rescued by a Good Samaritan who was unable to integrate him into her household because he tested positive for FIV. She visits him at least once a month and Oscar’s true sweetness is evident during those visits. He loves her and he has come to love some of us. Oscar is particular about who he will love and trust. It takes time, but once he trusts you, he is a devoted friend. Oscar enjoys the company of other cats like himself—those that aren’t too pushy but desire a friend with which to pass the hours. Because Oscar is nervous around some, he is difficult to show to potential adopters. He has a perfectly healthy but wonky eye that makes him always appear to be giving you a sideways glance.

Heather

Heather was adopted as a young cat in the early days of Tabby’s Place. When her devoted person fell on hard times, Heather came back to us. She is a beautiful dilute tortie who spends her days in a soft bed behind the monitor of our Development Director. She comes out at night when she thinks no one is watching. She enjoys being pet but is very nervous and shy. She is quiet but will purr when she feels comfortable.

Sammy

Sammy is only seven, but she was born with a congenital defect—she has a small hole in her heart. So far this does not seem to be causing any issues for her, but she does require an echocardiogram once a year to make sure that nothing is amiss. She is a shy girl who does not like to be handled, but enjoys pets from those individuals that she chooses to trust. Every now and then, a stranger comes into the room and Sammy makes it clear that this is someone to trust. Sammy is also polydactyl so she has extra toes on all four of her feet.

Dracula

She is not at all scary in spite of her name, but she is shy around new people so gets overlooked when potential adopters come to visit. Dracula is a beautiful, black kitty. She, unlike many of her suite mates, is in the room for the urinary diet not for weight management. She is in fact quite small and very playful. She loves mornings when the other kitties receive their meds and she can help the staff keep things in order. Dracula has a history of urinary crystals so needs to be on a special diet. No medication required!

  3. Thank you, Dawn and all others who support this most worthwhile cause. Our Dougie Dog had been abused, rescued and was adopted and then re-adopted to our home ... the most beautiful and loving dog ever. We are blessed to have him. Our prayer is for all to find forever homes, every day in every place.

  19. All three of our cats were rescues. Though only one of the old gals is still surviving all these years later, each helped make our house more of a home. :) We hope to adopt a pair of siblings one of these days after the sorrow of losing Tilly is not so fresh. Thanks for the condolences. It means a lot. Be well!

  21. Thank you so much for sharing some of the cats at Tabby's Place. One of the kitties that you posted, Dracula, found her forever home a few weeks ago. Oscar has a bff that he should go home with in my opinion. His name is Shea. All of the cats at TP deserve homes, but until then they will continue to lots of love from TP! signed 8 yr volunteer :D
