Twenty Orange Roof Cats Rescued

Orange roof cats

Feral Fixers, a TNR group in Westmont, IL, were recently engaged to rescue a group of orange cats who were seen hanging around a foreclosed home. A woman had left the tabbies behind when she lost the home, leaving the upstairs windows open so the cats had access to the roof. So many of the ginger tabbies were congregating on the roof that they came to be known as “The Roof Cats”

Feral Fixers specializes in effectively reducing the population of feral cats by trapping, neutering and returning them to their colonies. Cats who are sufficiently tame are socialized with the help of volunteers and adopted out through no-kill shelters.

Seventeen of the roof cats were trapped and relocated or rehomed, but some still need furever homes. Lauren Weber, a volunteer with Feral Fixers, says that “because of their experience, they are shy and need quiet homes with no young children or dogs. They would do well with other cats especially ones that are already friendly.”

    I’m so happy this had a happy ending. How could anyone just leave the cats to fend for themselfs?
