Our Pet List

A cat has absolute emotional honesty: human beings, for one reason or another, may hide their feelings, but a cat does not. Ernest Hemingway

Featured Pet of the Month:

Mackie is a very handsome white tabby male who is approximately 11 months old. Mackie came to SCP as an orphan found in Bridgeport. He is a quirky guy who loves to play and get belly rubs but can get spooked very easily. We are looking for a quiet, patient home for this sweet boy. Do you or someone you know have room in your heart and home to give this sweet, wonderful guy the loving home he so needs?

Winkin's Spot



We need help with our Spring Tag Sale. Set up is on Friday, May 13th, starting at 11:00 AM we need 2 more people to help load items for the sale from our storage shed. We need volunteers to get the sale items unpacked and set up at the tag sale site. On Saturday, we need help at the end of the day getting everything packed up and loaded into the truck to go back to our storage shed until the next tag sale. Please call us at (203) 375-7009 if you can help.


Kittens, kittens and more kittens. We took in over 30 kittens last month! We are in need of Friskies, Turkey and Giblet pate canned food, Wellness kitten canned food, and Frommís kitten dry good. Donations can be left at H3 Pet Supply or at 85 Champion Terrace, Stratford on the back patio. In addition, we help feed 5 feral colonies in the area and are in desperate need of dry cat food. Any help you can give will be appreciated. We couldnít rescue as many kitties in our area as we do without your help and support. THANK YOU!

Cat Tips: Some Cats Don't Purr -- Or Do They?

There are all kinds of purrs. Some cats have "motors" you can hear from several feet away, while some purr so quietly as to be inaudible to humans. And believe it or not, there are cats who don't purr at all. If you have a non-purring cat, that doesn't mean he's unhappy or doesn't love you. He may just choose to express his love in other ways. A smile or a snuggle on your lap is just as much a gesture of contentment as a purr.

WHO WE ARE

Stratford Cat Project, Inc. (SCP) is a federally recognized, non-profit organization. We are a group of residents concerned about the feral cat population and dedicated to rescuing the homeless and abandoned cats of Stratford. SCP is an all volunteer organization. We are not a shelter. All the cats that we help are fostered in our homes. We are presently operating solely on private donations and fund-raising. All proceeds and donations go directly to help Stratford cats.

VOLUNTEERS!

Volunteers Needed: Love cats? Have free time? Want to help? The Stratford Cat Project is always in need of volunteers. Fostering, helping out at fundraising events and adoptions and soliciting donations are just some of the ways you can participate. Please call us at 203-375-7009 if you are interested in helping our feline friends.

FOSTER HOMES

There is so much joy in knowing you have helped us save some kittens or adult cats in need as you help them get ready for their forever home. We furnish all supplies needed to care for our cats/kittens and provide a support system. Our adoptable kitties numbers are always growing, and it is sometimes necessary to turn strays away as our current foster homes become overcrowded. Please, if you can help, or if you know someone who can help, call 203-375-7009 today.

Our Wish List

URGENT: We presently have 80 cats that we are housing. We are always in need of food and litter. While our foster home number is lower we also have a food bank that provides food to families that cannot afford to feed their pets and helps caretakers of feral cat colonies. If you can make a donation, please call us at (203) 375-7009. Also, donations can be dropped off at 85 Champion Terrace, Stratford (on back patio) weather permitting.
Another way you can help - Please save all your cat food and litter coupons for us. Also, we save the PAW Points from Fresh Step Litter and redeem for coupons for free litter. Coupons and PAW Points can be mailed to: Stratford Cat Project, P.O. Box 1261, Stratford, 06615 or can be dropped off at any of our events.
Supply Donations Always Needed: We are in need of Friskies canned and dry food, wet wipes, trash bags 4, 8 and 13 gallons size, cat condos, litter, stamps, Walmart gift cards, bleach, scratching posts, rugs for cages, small plastic bags and paper towels.

SPONSORS

Want to help but don't have time to volunteer or foster? How about sponsoring a cat? A sponsor is someone who is willing to make a monthly donation for the care of one of our long term feline friends. As we all know, kittens are easy to find homes for. Sometimes it takes much longer to find a home for the adult ones. A sponsor will receive a picture of the cat they sponsor and are always welcome to visit. If you are interested in becoming a sponsor, please call Karin at 375-7009.

ADOPTING A FRIEND

We do require that an adoption application and agreement be filled out. There is an adoption fee of $125.00 for adult cat (1 year and up) and $150.00 for kitten (up to 11 months) All of our cats (adult or kitten) are spayed/neutered before adoption. All of our cats are tested, wormed and have received their age appropriate shots.
