Update: Nearly 50 Himalayan Cats Have Been Trapped in Two Montgomery County Park Areas

Last week we let you know of the Montgomery County Community Cat Coalition (MC C³) announcing that 33 Himalayan cats/kittens have been found in two Montgomery County parks. The number has since approached 50 cats with more being found/trapped each day.

According to MC C³, Himalayan cats and kittens have been found in the Wheaton area, most of them near the Sligo Creek Trail or in Wheaton Regional Park. Some have also been found in nearby neighborhoods. Citizens are engaged in an active effort to search for these cats and kittens and report sightings. There is still no word on who released the cats in the area or why, with efforts concentrated on ensuring their safety.

The cats are being fostered with many of them up for adoption. There are a limited number of Himalayans available at this time, however mote are being trapped each day. Some of the cats have been sick and tested positive for feline distemper. A requirement is that you have no other cats at home at this time so they are not at risk. Dogs and other pets ok. A volunteer group, McPaw, is now handling adoptions and fostering.

If you would like to adopt a Himalayan please fill out this form: https://mcc3.wufoo.com/forms/r1nt6phc1×2444f/

If you would like to foster a Himalayan or other cat please fill out this form: https://mcc3.wufoo.com/forms/×13tnsm0pvhsji/

Per MC C³, “We appreciate your willingness to help. We also have other wonderful cats that would love to have a forever home or foster. We rely on adoptions and fosters to save more from the streets. Please check with McPaw to see their list of adoptable cats they have fostered and cared for from MC C³”
