Cat Tails: Cora

Cora is a 6-year-old, spayed, domestic shorthaired cat.

Cora has a rather tragic story behind her.

Cora came to the Animal Rescue Coalition from a home with 13 cats when her owner passed away.  She had noticeable eye issues so we took her to the vet and found out she had eye ulcers. 

Cora was treated and her left eye is back to 98%.  Her right eye will always have some white cloudiness and limited vision but the ulcer is gone. 

Cora is loving, playful, and gets along with all the other cats at ARC. 

She loves to strut around with a glitter ball in her mouth and loves attention. 

This beautiful, playful girl would be a great addition to any family

If you have room in your heart and home for Cora, you may find out more about adoption through The Animal Rescue Coalition of Mecosta County, Michigan.


Cat Tails: Joseph

Joseph is a 10-month-old neutered male. 

Joseph was found as a stray wandering in the country.

He came to the shelter in March.  Joseph was placed in the kitten room when he arrived and loved all the little kittens at the shelter. 

He was recently moved to the adult room now that he is close to 10 months old and is doing great with the adult cats. 

He is friendly and very sweet.

Joseph doesn’t like dogs very well and prefers a home without them.

If you have room in your heart and home for Joseph, you may find out more about adoption through The Animal Rescue Coalition of Mecosta County, Michigan.

Cat Tails: Louis

I’m working with the Animal Rescue Coalition of Mecosta County, Michigan to showcase some of their pets who are available for adoption. Their website information is listed below.


Louis is a 3 year old neutered male with extra toes on his front feet. 

Louis needs to be an only cat and live in a home with no children.  Louis is extremely affectionate but gets over-stimulated when you pet him too much.

Louis is a huge volunteer favorite.

Cat Tails: Christmas Nuisance

This is our Christmas tree. I think it turned out very pretty, but you might ask, where are all the ornaments?

Since we put our tree up on Christmas Eve, I only put a dozen or so ornaments on it.

Why did we wait so late to set it up?

Technically, we set it up a couple of weeks before Christmas.

Then this happened:

My sister asked if we were decorating for Halloween:

As we set up the tree the first time, we realized why all of the lights on the prelit tree weren’t working.

The cats had apparently chewed through the cords last year or while it was in storage.

It only took 6 hours for the two cats to knock the tree down (still undecorated).

After they brought it to the floor, we considered not having a tree this year. Then we decided to put it up at the last moment possible. I bought a couple of strands of lights and we added garland that I had saved in the Christmas decorations. I put a few of my favorite ornaments on it, nothing that would break if the tree “happened” to fall.

The decorated tree might have intimidated the cats, or maybe they’d lost interest by then. For whatever reason, they left it alone, and we had a pretty tree to put our presents under.

Cats-what a nuisance. lol.

We like them, anyway.
