Fat Cat Rescue, Inc. wants you! Join us in the feral cat revolution! (Guest Blogger) #FeralCatDay

As a participant in Alley Cat Allies’ 15th Annual National Feral Cat Day®, Fat Cat Rescue will hold an Adopt-a-thon on October 17 and 18 and share ways that everyone can fight for better lives for feral cats. The theme of this year’s Feral Cat Day event is “Evolution of the Cat Revolution.” We are always looking for revolutionaries to join our efforts to humanely reduce the feral cat population. We promote TNR—trap, neuter, return—of feral cats. The cats are vaccinated, neutered or spayed, and then returned to caretakers who provide food and shelter. It’s the proven way to eliminate unwanted litters and to allow feral cats to live out healthier and happier lives. In the past, far too often feral cats were rounded up and killed. As communities learn about TNR, more and more are signing on to a no-kill policy for stray cats—the revolution is growing every day.

"Mr. Whiskers"
He started Fat Cat Rescue!!!

Fat Cat Rescue, Inc. of Lake County, Illinois has been fighting the good fight for cats for years, and we are now a registered 501(c)3 charity. We started in our homes, garages, and yards out of a combination of necessity, compassion, and our inability to allow any animal to suffer. Three years ago, Fat Cat Rescue, Inc organized as a tax-exempt nonprofit rescue and since then we have saved over 3,000 feral and stray cats.

All too often, we find cats on the streets that are homeless but friendly. Our goal is to find a good home for every one of them. We’ve been very successful in finding homes for kittens that are born to feral moms. The kittens are very adoptable after being socialized by our expert fosters. And this brings us back to our Adopt-a-thon event at our local Pet Supplies Plus in Waukegan, Illinois. We hope to find as many furr-ever homes as we can during our two-day event and also to spread the word about the feral cat revolution.
