December 17, 2011: WE HAVE A HOME FOR MOUSTACHE! Thanks to everyone who expressed interest and spread the signal--she gets a family for the Yule holiday!

edited to add: if it doesn't work out, we'll take her back. We don't want her homeless or in a shelter!

The guy who helps us keep house is just as big a mushball for cats as well are. Unfortunately, he is up to his limit with 5 cats. He knew about this girl, one of the cats in the area around his yard, and when he saw her developing a little football belly, he brought her straight to us. She isn't feral like the other cats he keeps an eye on, so she came along very willingly, and because we already have a houseful, she's been living in our mud room. She would VERY much like a forever home and family of her own!

For obvious reasons, we've named her Ms. Moustache (pronounced the French way, moo-STASH). If you live within driving distance of Syracuse NY and can convince me you will take care of her and can keep her on a permanent basis, she is yours. She has had her shots, and she is spayed. Something happened to her tail, so it isn't as long as she would like, because you know she's the kind of sweetie who would love to wave her tail in the air!

She is just adorable! Sadly, I am also at my limit with 5 cats (one of them with major medical issues). I hope you find her a great home; she looks like a lover!

My goodness she's beautiful! I wish I could take her, but I'm stuck in an apartment that doesn't allow cats for six more months. :(

Any idea how she is with other cats? I live a couple hours from Syracuse, have been pondering getting a 2nd cat for about a year, but my current cat has been lord of her domain for 5 years, and I don't know how the two will get along.

Well, she was running/living with another stray who Andy (the mushball) kept for himself. If too much more time goes without our finding a home, we're going to have to release her into our general population anyway. She's not at all aggressive, though, and she's much younger than your cat, who's already in the house. (That makes a difference.) I should mention up above, if it doesn't work out, we'll take her back.

I wish I could, but the whole "living in another country and in a province nearly on the other side of the continent" rather makes that not so feasible.

*squeak*

What a face!

I am neither in NYS or able to take another cat, but I will happily pass this along to my Capital Area and Western NY friends. That's a cat that needs snuggles.

(Snuggles from a forever home, that is. I am sure she is getting an overabundance of snuggles currently!) ;)

Ohhhhh I'd take her if she could come to Ireland; sadly I expect that's impossible.

This is a year and a half too early, or I would take her. Unfortunately, I live in a college dorm where we aren't allowed furry friends. :/ Once I graduate I'll be looking...

I hope she finds a forever home.

I'm a VERY long way from Syracuse, alas. Else I'd be onto you for her. She would match well with my other two black-and-whites...

Tammy how do you deal with the feral cats in the area? I'm in Syracuse as well and we have four adorable 5-6 month old kittens living in the parking lot / wooded lot behind the apartment building. I'm worried about them in the winters we get here!

Hope you find a home for this pretty girl!

We put a dish of tuna in a Havaheart trap and we trap `em! We tuck them in a small room like the bathroom with the trap up off of the floor (they're going to be scared and whizz)(we use bricks) until we can get them to our vet or to SANS--New York Spay and Neuter, who will de-flea/tick, spay/neuter, and I think give them their shots. Also, if you like, I can have my assistant tell you how to build a warm habitat for them so they have a place to stay out of the weather! Message me if you're interested!

If I still lived in Norwich I would take her :\ Unfortunately Japan is a very long way from Syracuse... I hope she finds a forever home soon!

Hnnnngggg, she is the cutest thing. :3 If I didn't live in another country... Though I wouldn't be able to take in another cat anyway, because I already have four. But every time I see a cute face in need, I can't help WANTING to take it in, even if I cant. :< I hope she finds a good home.

Hi Tammy,

Lovely kitty, wish I weren't in WA. However, you might try contacting the tumblr blog FYeahFelines. (http://fuckyeahfelines.tumblr.com/) The blog is dedicated to sharing photos of cats, but will also share stories similar to yours, where there's a cat in need of a home. From what I've seen, there's a pretty high success rate of homing cats due to the large "follow" pool.

I hope this helps!

I'm not sure about Tumblr yet, trusting my fans more than strangers, but if it comes to that, I'll give it a try. I want to follow this route first!

Okay, so my dad knows someone who might take her. I live in MI, but would be willing to make the drive to pick her up and take her over to them. However, I'd only be able to pick her up early January.

I'll keep you updated.

Thanks! I'll keep trying to find a more local home--the thought of you driving here from Michigan in January makes me wince!
