***UPDATE - Feline foster parent needed

***Wow, you guys are good. Less than a day after asking for help, Gracie has a new temporary home. Thanks to all of you who offered to help. Healing Hope can always use friends like you.

An open letter from Kristen Marcucci on behalf of Kim Rockshaw of the Healing Hope Cat Sanctuary:

I have been volunteering for a local cat sanctuary called Healing Hope Cat Sanctuary. The website is not up and running yet, but I will post the info when it is...I am still working on it. However, we are reaching out to anyone living in the Southern California area who would be able to provide a foster home to a 3 year old female cat. She was abandoned and living outside.
Healing Hope rescued her because, unlike the feral cats in the area, she was most likely a stray that had lived in a home at one point. She was not fearful and was very loving and trusting....so much so that she was in danger at the hands of some neighborhood kids who apparently have been doing things to harm her.
Out of concern for her safety, Healing Hope took her off the streets. Normally the sanctuary would use a spare room to isolate a new cat and spend time working with her to see if she is adoptable. However, currently they are at max capacity and due to another recent rescue do not have a separate room to let her get used to home living again. They need a loving foster parent who would be willing to spend the time working with her to make her comfortable with living in a home again. This could take anywhere from 1-3 months...depending on how quickly she responds.
The plan is then to adopt her out if she is adoptable and can adjust. If you know anyone who would be willing to help with this or anyone looking to adopt a cat (Healing Hope has a few other cats that are awaiting loving homes) please contact me. The immediate need is a place for this female to stay temporarily. As of now she is in a large cage so that she feels safe from the other cats in the sanctuary, but this is not ideal and it will be impossible to see if she is adoptable in that kind of situation. Thank you for taking the time to read this and passing this on if you can't help out yourself.
