I have received this notice, Tiger the Main Coon cat had a litter of kittens. One kitten left. If anyone can help out, let me know.

Hi,

I have 3 feral/stray cats that are about 2.5 years old. They were trapped neutered and released and I've been working to make them adoptable enough to get them off the streets. (Since then, 2 other wild cats have shown up and have joined the pack but are not tame). Winter is coming and I couldn't bare to leave them outside another year. One has already lost half an ear from frostbite. They preferably need to stay together. I cannot take them myself since I have a full house with four pets, three rescued cats from a garbage bag in a city dump and one dobermann who would not accept the 3 strays...
I am not looking to just get rid of them but to find them a good home indoors.

Can you help or direct me to a foster home or anyone who can help me rescue them.

2 are black and one is a tortoise/main coon... I have pics on the web:

Poodletalk,I hope someone will be able to help this lady,they are beautiful cats,the Maine Coon is stunning,it's so sad :sad:
She certainly seems to be an angel of mercy,whoever she is and I fully understand her not wanting to see these babies outside in the winter.
I like so many others,I'm sure,would like nothing more than to help out..but I just cannot,but maybe someone will,hopefully!

Yes, the main coon is beautiful. She already has lost tip of her ear because of the cold of last years winter. She's a mix main coon, I have contacted someone who was interested in Toby, but they want a purebreed not a mix!
Tiger,(Main coon) has been outside for over a year, she needs someone to give her time and patience to regain her trust again with people. Here's a picture of her beautiful kitty who also needs a home.

I potentially found a home for the kitten....working on the mother cat and the two black cats.

This is in Montreal? Finding homes for ferals is not easy, which is how I ended up with 3 of them.:(

I"ll keep an ear open for any barn homes that might be available,and will ask around on Saturday.

Thank you Poodletalk!!!

Yes, they are in Montreal. The kitten has found a home, just across the street from me, so I can keep an eye on her or him. As for the other cats, I am trying!

The cats are still homeless along and they are outside along with another 2. One cat was pregnant but the pregnancy was terminated when they lady who rescued it got it sterilized. Is there anyone who's interested in helping these cats before the cold freezing weather begins?

With so many calls coming in for strays/ferals living outside, we have been suggesting that the person concerned with their wellbeing construct a shelter of some type and continue to care for them outside if a foster/permanent home is not found. Sometimes an old dresser with a drawer removed and filled with straw will do the trick.

Hi SOSMIOW,

Thanks for your suggestion about the old drawer with the straw. The problem is that the land is not mine and the cats are not wanted by the landlord nor by the neighbors. I will try to post an update pic of them as a last effort.
