Overbrook Strays

6 May

Ever irksome, the number of abandoned or dumped cats that show up in feral colonies. In the past month alone, two new boys arrived, one with a broken jaw, another with a severe upper respiratory infection. Both are on the mend, and will soon be available for adoption.



Marco Polo

2 Apr

Marco Polo was exploring Mount Airy when he wandered into a feral trapping project and found himself – surprise! – trapped! He was wearing a flea collar, but no ID, and was very thin. His long coat was matted, and in spite of the collar, he had fleas.

Marco has thrived in foster care – he has filled out, been neutered, vaccinated, and treated for fleas. He is very friendly, playful, and needs his own loving, forever home!
