ACR was alerted to a large colony of cats living in south central Los Angeles. A team was quickly sent out to help these cats. This cat colony was easy to find as they were hanging out on the sidewalk of a very busy street when the team arrived. It was almost like they were waiting for help to come. Most of the cats were a variation of a beautiful grey and white pattern. It is likely that there was a mother cat with multiple litters of kittens living in the colony together. This unmanaged colony of cats had started off with just two or three cats a year ago but quickly grew to over 15 cats. The adult cats were TNR’d and the kittens were young enough to be adopted out. ACR is still learning how large this colony of cats is and will be continuing rescue efforts until all the cats are TNR’d.
Since the rescue efforts, ACR found adopters for all of the kittens except one. Somehow Jack has been overlooked, which is surprising considering his loving personality and beautiful coat. This 7-month old boy loves to chase his toy mouse, hang out with the foster family and roll over and show his belly. After a long day, Jack is ready to jump into bed and cuddle with his foster mom. His foster mom describes him as a “super sweet, chill kitty with the softest coat.” If you’d like to provide this boy a home, contact Alley Cat Rescue through our online inquiry form.
