National Feral Cat Day!

Oh Boy!
National Feral Cat Day!!
As you can probably tell NFCD is a wonderful day for us here at the BCC as feral cats are one of main concerns!
We strongly believe in the humane treatment of feral cats, because it's not their fault they are in their situation. We have Trap-Neuter-Release programs, we take out eligible cats and socialize them to be adopted!
We know many of you out here in the Cat Blogosphere are formerly feral!
What we would like to do is have many many more cats be just like you! Formerly feral in ultra loving homes!
If you would like to assist the BCC in this goal we take donations year round, just click our firstgiving Donate button on the sidebar, remember no amount is to small it's the thought that counts and those ferals out there need all the love they can get!
Here's some of our previous kittens now all Formerly Ferals in action!

International Homeless Animals' Day 8/19/10

Today is International Homeless Animals' Day! International Homeless Animals' Day is not only an opportunity to pay homage to creatures whose lives we have responsible dominion over, it is a chance to make a change. Come visit is us at APC and give one of our little loves a good furever home!
International Homeless Animals' Day is a purr...fect opportunity to begin volunteering your time as these animals need your love and attention. Our Volunteers bring happiness to the animals and socially prepare them for their journeys to their loving furever homes.
International Homeless Animals' Day may be a solemn day of remembrance for the millions of animals that die each year due to pet overpopulation, but it is also a day of hope and inspiration. There is never a better time than the present to create positive change for unwanted animals. Together, we make a difference!

Featured Adoptables: Maya & Juno

Today at the BCC we have two wonderful female tiger kittens. They are on the prowl for a loving forever home, preferably together, but if they must, they will go their separate ways.
Maya (white toes) and Juno (white feet) had a very rough start in life.  They were orphaned at four weeks and went without food for a few days before they were rescued. When they were rescued, they were sick and starving. They have since recovered with lots of tender loving care.
Maya and Juno are extremely friendly lap kittens and are now in top health. They love to play with toy mice, puff balls, and paper dinner napkins. When they run laps, they have thundering feet. They play together, groom each other, and are loving sisters who want to find a furever home together.
Maya and Juno have both been spayed, fully vet checked, tested and fully immunized. If you are interested in adopting these beauties and are in the Connecticut area, e-mail us at or

Featured Adoptables: Noah

I'm really sweet, I promise.

Today we would like you to meet Noah.

Noah is a wonderful cat who has been with the BCC for several months. His foster mom hates to think of letting him go but knows Noah needs his wonderful furever home.

Noah was found in a feral colony. I immediately fell in love with him and his friendly manner, and after some time I decided to take him from home. So I brought him to be vetted.  It was only then I learned that he he has FIV.

He does not have to take medication for FIV and can live a long and healthy life.  He is very lovable. Noah is between 3-5 years old. He has beautiful light blue eyes and white long hair. When we first got him his underbelly was so tightly matted he had to be shaved, but because the knots were hurting him, he didn't mind at all. He loves to be brushed whenever possible. Because I am a foster mom for BCC, Noah will not be able to stay with me. He desperately needs a furever loving home to live out his years.

Because of Noah's condition, he must remain indoors.  He can be in a single cat home or a household with other FIV cats. If anyone would love to give Noah a forever home, please let us know. If you would like, drop us an email at or bcc We will have someone contact you upon receipt.

*BCC does not do nationwide adoptions.
