I need help or suggestions for this poor cat

To make a very long story short, one of my colleagues just got a new listing. It's an estate sale. The woman died about a year and a half ago and apparently her cat has continued to live alone in the empty house ever since. An elderly neighbor (in her eighties) has been going in and feeding the cat but it's lived in deplorable conditions for a long time.

Today, my friend caught the cat after trying for two and a half weeks. She was originally going to take it to a shelter but I convinced her she couldn't. They would kill it. I need help now trying to get it to a no kill shelter or find it a home. If anybody has any suggestions, I'm listening. If I didn't have the four dogs I'd take it myself. It is sweet, absolutely beautiful with the most gorgeous eyes, though you can't tell in my photo. The flash caused those crazy eyes. The picture was taken on my phone. Poor thing wouldn't venture out of the carrier.

This poor baby deserves a good home with people who can love it.

Geri,

She is absolutely beautiful and looks to be a persian or a persian mix. Do you have a persian rescue in your area? They would be a great place to start.

I was thinking she is a maine coon. She's beautiful. I hope you find somewhere for her to go.

My guess would be a Maine Coon. She is gorgeous. This breaks my heart. I hope she finds a loving home soon.

Geri, did you try NSAL? Or how about Little Shelter (I think they're in Huntington).

I would take it to the shelter myself. If she is a nice kitty she has a good chance of being adopted as lots of people would see her there. Don't they just put down the really nasty ferral cats?

Geri- you may want to think about posting for help in your area on craigslist. I did that with Autumn the ACD and got a load of resources (different rescues and individual help).

I tried both. NSAL only takes kittens up to 12 weeks and I'm waiting for Little Shelter to call me back. My heart is absolutely breaking for this sweet little thing. Imagine, it lived all alone for a year and a half. Clearly the woman who owned her loved her very much. She died, sadly in her fifties, just a short time after her son died of cancer. Sad, sad story. I really need to find this baby a good home.

To the best of my knowledge they only keep them for a short while and then put them down if nobody takes them. This cat has suffered enough. It deserves better. Someone has to be there for it.
