Theresa was trapped as part of a Trap-Neuter-Return project of feral and free-roaming cats in an abandoned, dirty lot in Jamaica, Queens. While most of the cats from the project were feral and were happy to be returned to their homeland, Theresa was definitely not! In fact, she seemed to have had her fill living on the mean streets, struggling to find food, and avoiding the cruelty and indifference of some of the locals. The Empty Cages Collective (ECC) opted not to release her and instead would work to find her a home.
Unfortunately, Theresa has waited for months to be adopted and has been passed over time and time again.
Theresa is a beautiful, chubby calico shorthaired cat with a strong will and a love of all things food-related: crunchy and canned (we suspect this is because she remembers the difficulty in finding food in her former life!). She is sweet, but bored with her current situation. She is up-to-date on vaccinations, tested NEGATIVE for feline leukemia and FIV (good thing!), dewormed, and spayed. She loves boxes for napping and will often speak in soft little mews trying to inform you of her intentions.
Theresa deserves more then a cage – so she would like nothing more then for you to help her find a wonderful home, and free up needed space so we can help other cats and kittens who are in trouble or at risk of cruelty or death. Please give Theresa something to finally be thankful for!
