Thank you so much for helping us raise over $15,000 for LC3's Community Cat TNR, Kitten Rescue, and Medical assistance programs! It's the most we have ever raised in 1 day!

05/06/2020

Thank you so much for your donations during our annual GiveChoose campaign yesterday!
You - our great supporters and dedicated volunteers helped us raise over $14,000 for LC3's Community Cat TNR, Kitten Rescue, and Medical assistance programs! It's the most we have ever raised in 1 day!
The GiveChoose donation link will be active through May 18, 2020 so you can still donate to the campaign. You may always make a donation by clicking on the "Donate" button on our page and through our website www.loudouncommunitycats.org
Your donations are so important to us!
Our Spring fundraisers were canceled due to COVID-19 so we have been running at a deficit since February. We have fixed nearly 150 cats so far this year, and although kitten season started late, the number of kittens we are finding and the assistance requests for kittens are ramping up quickly! We put 13 kittens into foster last week, and we are currently trapping a site in Sterling with a litter of outdoor newborns and at least one other litter running around!
We recognize that everyone has been affected in one way or another by the COVID-19 pandemic, and we truly appreciate your generosity and sacrifice to help us improve the health and welfare of community cats, and to humanely reduce the population through TNR and Kitten Rescue programs.
Please follow us on Facebook and check our website to keep for upcoming events once we can host public events again.
Thank you for your support and thank you for helping community cats!

Great relationships can develop between volunteers, fosters, and the adopters. This story dates back to our beginning, and is an example of the bond we all share when rescuing community cats or any other animals in need.
LC3's first big TNR site, back in 2015, was a property crowded with over 35 cats and kittens, many of whom were in poor health, most with upper respiratory infections, swollen eyes, and anemic from flea and tick infestation.
One cat we called Mouse, was the most severely ill of all of the cats and kittens we trapped on the farm. The elderly lady who tried to care for the cats was overwhelmed and realized she just could not do it any more She surrendered most of the cats and after TNR-ing the rest she had a group of healthy, sterile cats she could manage with no worry about the population getting out of control again. 💗
Mouse was an older cat with one foggy eye and just by looking at him, you knew he'd had a rough life!
He and five other very sick cats had to be cared for in an isolated area of a foster home that Pam, the foster mom, called "the infurrmary". It took months and many visits and housecalls from our partner vets for the six cats to be nursed back to health!
Fortunately, all survived and eventually thrived, and they were all adopted into loving homes.
Mouse, now named Mowgli was adopted by Lisa in 2015, at an LC3 fundraiser held at 8 Chains North Winery.
At that time Lisa was going through a rough patch in her own life and says that Mowgli saved her as much as she saved Mowgli❣
On the anniversary of Mowgli's adoption Lisa always touches base with Pam so they can catch up with one another! 💗
Mowgli, Lisa and their family now live in Florida and he is one happy guy❣
Please contact us if you'd like to volunteer as a foster or in any other way to help community cats.

Remember the kitten found at the Purcellville Police Department?? Some of the Town’s Finest were surprised to find our trappers crawling in the bushes of their station looking for this little hunk of a kitten! He found his lovely forever family and has grown right up! Now named Pepper, he makes sure his family is safe from the invasion of fuzzy toys for sure! Maybe his law enforcement background stuck with him!!!

We may be biased, but isn’t the the cutest?!

Community cats often get a bad rap as being these wild beasts. But in fact they are just domestic cats that never experienced human touch before 8 weeks of age. They are just surviving the best way they know how and compassionate caretakers and community effort can make life a bit easier for them by getting them fixed and giving them food, water and shelter. You would be surprised how complex their own little community may be and compassion abounds amongst them. Tails are often intertwined while they walk together and they alert each other of danger. And then there is this...just true love of each other.

Please help us provide the TNR benefits these cats deserve so they can have more moments like these 💗.

Back in 2018, we received a call regarding some cats behind a business and if we could help them out with TNR. One of our volunteers went to assess the site and was told there were about 10 cats. We organized trapping day in conjunction with one of our mass spay/neuter clinics. The day before, the volunteer went back to the business to remind folks about the plan and reconfirmed the number of cats. The original information of 10 cats went to 17 cats! It was difficult for the business to be sure how many cats because many looked alike. But we were not deterred! We knew we could still help this business out because of our community support. The day was a success with 10 adult cats and 6 kittens. LC3 partnered with PetConnect Rescue who took the kittens into their rescue program. With one or more cats still needing TNR, LC3 went back several more times and helped even more cats from this site. These cats are well cared for and the ear tip alerts the caretakers when new cats show up.

Our recent post about Fierce Feral Frownie Franklin is one of those cats. Our trapper noticed his fur looked like the fur you would see when a cat cannot groom itself properly. Turns out, he desperately needed some diseased teeth extracted. What would have been a standard neuter turned into a much more costly TNR visit that the caretaker could not afford. Ongoing donations from our amazing community allow us to make these decisions and we got him the proper care he needed to live a much healthier and happier life.

If you would like to help make sure we always can say yes to extra care when needed, please consider LC3 in today's Give Choose campaign!

One of our partner vets referred a caretaker to us from Western Loudoun. Our friends at Leesburg Veterinary knew we could help this caretaker. A neighbor had moved and left behind a large colony of cats . So the cats migrated down the street to the caretakers house . They had dozens of kittens, night after night they were searching their property for babies to bring inside for fear they would be killed by predators. They also had about 30 adult cats . She had reached out to other groups for help but Loudoun Community Cat Coalition was the only group to respond . We sent 2 volunteers to assess the site and they agreed WE HAD TO HELP . The caretaker was overwhelmed and scared to tears . So afraid of what would happen if she didn’t get help soon . We immediately found rescues to help with the kittens and the caretakers reached out to family and friends to adopt kittens. Then we started a plan to TNR the adults for our next mass clinic . Within days the caretakers were getting relief .

We trapped over 30 cats in about a months time. The caretakers were very involved in the trapping process , even using the drop trap ! They were so relieved. They now had a group to rely on for medical needs, future kittens they may find and any guidance they may need .

This is just one story of many . We are glad to help those in need , the cats and the people !

From Ellen Zangla Ellen Zangla Photography:
When I lost my black cat, Chaya, five years ago, I was heartbroken. I couldn't even look at a black cat, or a picture of one, for a long time without feeling sad. But I know that black cats have a harder time being adopted, and I wanted to adopt one to honor Chaya. I saw pictures of four black cats, littermates, on one of LC3's fosters Instagram pages; they had been found living under a van in Purcellville with their mom. LC3 rescued all of them and one of their wonderful fosters took them in until they were old enough to be adopted. One of the pictures reminded me of Chaya but didn't look exactly like her, so I went to meet him. And we fell in love with him, and one of his sisters, a long-haired mostly black female, who settled into my lap as soon as I picked her up. They came home with us shortly afterward, and we couldn't love them (Panther and Storm) more. They were the perfect addition to our family—loving, sweet, and playful, and they get along great with our other two cats and our two dogs! I will forever be grateful to LC3 for helping us find such awesome family members!

SUZIE’s STORY - NORA (Part 3 of 3)
Suzie the mom cat who gave birth to a kitten while in a trap waiting to be spayed at an LC3 TNR clinic is ready and eager to be adopted! But we know you want to know about Nora Justine-Tyme who was rescued through the joint effort of our medical volunteers, our Kitten Rescue team, and the AWLA. Nora is still in foster and doing very well! She is developing beautifully, and has had other kitten playmates from different litters, as well as a big brother of a different breed. You might think her big doggie friend views her as a tasty morsel, but that couldn’t be further from the truth!
Nora has been snuggly since day 1 and started "making biscuits" when held on day 12! On day 19 four younger 10-day old kittens came into foster, and little Nora became the big sister! She helped take care of them at feeding time then went back to her foster mom to hang out with the grown-ups. Nora is 8 weeks old now and is getting lots of attention from potential adopters. If she’s anything like her mom, Suzie, she will be a wonderful companion!
Paula says "I am madly in love with Nora! As a foster and caretaker of cats and kitten it is wonderfully amazing to watch them grow, adjust, trust, and love". It is a joy to find the special people who will provide a good home and love them forever. A tiny piece of your heart is reserved just for them because as much as foster parents truly love their "babies" they must say goodbye so they can save another life in need.
Contact us if you are interested in adopting Suzie, and you can be the last chapter of her story! You can also contact us if you are interested in being a foster parent for kitten or cats of any age - you can be a lifesaver too!
Please donate to Loudoun Community Cat Coalition through GiveChoose today to help fund our Kitten Rescue team, TNR, and medical programs. A lot of stories like this end differently, but the dedication of our volunteers and partners, and your donations can bring many more of these stories to a happy ending!

SUZIE's STORY (Part 2 of 3):
So you've met Suzie, the 6-yr old who looked like a 1 yr old, brought to our TNR clinic to be spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, ear-tipped, and returned to her caregivers' outdoor home. Now back to that fateful day when Suzie was waiting patiently in her trap for her turn to take a nap for surgery - our volunteer was using a trap divider to scoot her up against one end of the trap so she could get the first dose of sedative. Suzie wouldn't budge! Her little body was stiff as a brick and she wouldn't move! They turned the trap on edge to roll her to one side, and shockingly discovered that she was hiding an extra special bundle of joy under her belly! As soon as she rolled over a bit the tiny newborn kitten's peeping meow could be heard by the trained ears of the rescuers, and suddenly there was a crowd gathered all around her. This was a first at one of our clinics!
Our volunteer trappers sprung into action and the search was on for more kittens back at the TNR site. After an extensive effort all day and into the night there were no other kittens found – Suzie had just one! Our medical team was also working to make Suzie and her newborn comfortable by transferring her into a private area at the clinic and moving her from the trap into a carrier with a warm blanket, food, and water. Our Kitten Rescue Team scrambled to find a foster with neonatal skills who could take both mama and baby until the little one was weaned. Our rescue partner Animal Welfare League of Arlington immediately offered a volunteer, and Paula rushed out to Hoof and Paw Veterinary Service to pick them up from our clinic. Shortly after they were set up at her foster home, Paula noticed that Suzie was unable to nurse the kitten. She was so dehydrated and emaciated that she had no milk! Fortunately Paula was well prepared with KMR, syringes, and bottles. We rescued the kitten just in time! A few days later it became clear that Suzie couldn’t provide care for her kitten (appropriately named Nora Justine-Tyme), and we scheduled Suzie for her spay, but since she was acting quite friendly at Paula’s we transferred her into another foster home for a behavior assessment. She turned out to be 100% friendly and her caregivers surrendered her since she was doing much better indoors. Suzie is now ready for a forever home. But what about Nora? What’s her story? Check back at around 6 PM to find out!

The LC3 TNR program covers a wide area with a limited number of volunteers, so we sometimes enlist colony caretakers to help us trap their cats. We deliver traps and supplies, teach caretakers the basics of trapping and provide guidance as needed throughout the process. The caretakers for the colony at this business in Sterling are very dedicated to improving the quality of life for their cats and were eager to help with trapping. Thanks to their efforts, the majority of cats in this colony have now been safely trapped, spayed/neutered, vaccinated and returned to their home. Plans are currently underway for trapping the remaining cats. Dedicated caretakers like these are definitely force multipliers!
I have a solid black kitty with green eyes living under my screened porch. I don’t know the gender. I’m referring to it as a she, but it could be a he. I feed her and give her water. She’s eating now. She does. It seem to be injured, and she is not ferrel. Sterling
It's important to stay clean during during your quarantine, even if that means accepting help from your brother. Just ask Rory, the"kitten" formerly known as Cisco. 😻
Anyone missing a cat?
Ok, guys, question for you. What to do (if anything) There's a black cat who likes to be right up close to 287 N out of Lovettsville. He's in a yard, I guess, but the house is quite a ways away and there's no fence. The road sits up a bank, so he's not right on the shoulder, but pretty close. I see him there fairly often when I drive by . I don't even know if he belongs to that house. He doesn't look in bad condition, from what i can see. do I try and figure out which house and go knock on their door? And say what? Or just drive on and hope he doesn't get hit? Or.....?

I sent you an email 6 days ago & haven't received any reply or even an acknowledgement. How can I get in touch with someone about helping a cat?
Thank you LC3 for the cat bed that was one of the prizes I won at the last Bingo night. My little love nugget uses it every day! Her favorite moose toy is frequently in it too.
Arthur's Gotcha Birthday is coming up on the 10th. He has taken over the office 😍
This is our "new" cat, Nebbie. We first noticed her on our deck probably back in February 2019. As we saw that she visited regularly, we began putting out food for her. By March, as it was clear that she would be a frequent visitor, we bought her a little outdoor shelter to keep her and her food dry and out of the elements when the weather was bad. She was very cautious about us. When we did see her, she usually quickly climbed up the fence and either ran away or watched us from a safe distance. When she watched us from outside our backyard, we would talk to her and she would talk back - a good amount of hissing, but also lots of meows. From inside the house, we would see her eating her lunch and taking naps in her little shelter. In the middle of August, for the first time, she stayed inside the backyard and talked with me while I brought her lunch. Our security camera managed to catch the action as she trotted over to eat lunch just as a got to the top of the deck stairs. The very next day, she gave us our first gift of a slaughtered little creature (later identified as a bird). Over the next couple of months, she got closer and closer to us. She began to join us on the deck where we would relax in the evenings- even eventually jumping up onto the furniture with us and taking treats from our hands. She started letting us pet her, too. The first time I pet her was very funny; she looked like she was in shock and jumped as if to say "what the heck was that!" We already had 3 cats - all boys - who were very intrigued by her. For a while, they would get very fussy at her, hissing loudly and batting at the window and glass door. As she grew more accustomed to us, she began to stand at the sliding glass door and even poke her head inside. She began to come inside the house briefly and then shoot right back outside. The boys always managed to lose their fervor once there wasn't a pane of glass separating them. During a day of very heavy rain, she came inside, soaking wet, and spent several hours with us. She made a few more longer indoor visits and then Halloween came. That night there were predictions of severe storms including tornado warnings, so we let her inside and kept her in overnight. She scooted right back outside when we opened the door the next morning, and then we spent a few days with that routine. But once we hit a few days of very cold temperatures during the day, we just kept her inside and she's been content ever since. Just this week, we took her to our veterinarian at Caring Hands and discovered that she was chipped and had been under the watchful eyes of LCCC. We're very excited to welcome her into our home and I've learned more about feral cats and how organizations like LCCC help them. We're very grateful ♡ Nebbie now has a bed of her own, favorite toys, and a preferred spot in the sunroom where she can lie down and look out the window.
Does Bingo start at 6 or 6:30 tonight?
I have a shelter to pass on to you. I think my neighborhood feral may have crossed the Rainbow Bridge. He/she hasn't been seen in a month. :( It hasn't been used, so it's ready to be put out. I'm in Old Sterling.
