These two homeless cats were being fed in Port Chester until the kind soul feeding them moved… Time for a rescue!

Both six month old “Coco” and one year old “Miki” have been neutered and fully vetted. They are both completely healthy.

Coco is very timid and Miki very scared of people, both need time & patience to learn to trust people to become house cats…  They would do well as comrades as a barn cats or in a feral colony too.

They are in great need, declining in spirit they must soon be freed from being enclosed.

They have been at Rippowam Animal Hospital in Stamford for over a month. ARK Charities/Redemption Rescue continues to mount expenses to keep them safe. Contact ARK Charities (www.ark-charities.org ), Tina 203 830-9774 or Franchesca 203 559-1498.

You can meet them at Rippowam Animal Hospital on High Ridge Road, Tel 203 329-8811

Please care and share to help get them to a happier life.

    I wish that people knew that turning cats into “barn cats” isn’t exactly easy: One can’t just plop them at a barn and expect them to stick around. There’s a certain procedure to be followed: Cats must be kept indoors, or caged indoors, allowing them to learn the scent of the new area. After a few weeks, when they have become accustomed to the area and caretakers, they should ideally be allowed outside under supervision.
    Believe me, I learned this lesson when I began trapping cats at the Greenwich “dump” 25 years ago. After calling all the barns in the area (not just Greenwich), i found that not only were they not eager to accept any cats, they had stray cats that weren’t spayed/neutered and were constantly besieged (their expression) with litters of kittens, several times a year. The same goes for releasing cats at a feral colony – they would NOT stay around and would most likely try to find their way back to the area from which they came, exposed to many dangers.
