Playtime is a vital part of your cat's life whether it's with you, by themselves, or with a companion pet. Interactive playtime with a fishing pole-type toy or wand is especially important and is often overlooked when it comes to the cat/human relationship.
Here are some reasons to make interactive playtime a part of daily life: It's a valuable trust-building tool, it strengthens the bond with your cat, it helps reduce fear and ease multi-cat tension, it's great exercise, it teaches kitty what is and isn't acceptable to bite, it helps ease stress after a traumatic event, it reduces damage done to your home and it helps a cat develop a positive association with its environment.
Remember, an active cat is healthier and a mentally-stimulated cat is happier; therefore, they will not need to redirect energy into destructive behaviors. Playtime will benefit not only your cat, but your home and your bond with them.

WHO WE ARE
Stratford Cat Project, Inc. (SCP) is a federally recognized, non-profit organization. We are a group of residents concerned about the feral cat population and dedicated to rescuing the homeless and abandoned cats of Stratford. SCP is an all volunteer organization. We are not a shelter. All the cats that we help are fostered in our homes. We are presently operating solely on private donations and fund-raising. All proceeds and donations go directly to help Stratford cats.
Volunteers Needed: Love cats? Have free time? Want to help? The Stratford Cat Project is always in need of volunteers. Fostering, helping out at fundraising events and adoptions and soliciting donations are just some of the ways you can participate. Please call us at 203-375-7009 if you are interested in helping our feline friends.
There is so much joy in knowing you have helped us save some kittens or adult cats in need as you help them get ready for their forever home. We furnish all supplies needed to care for our cats/kittens and provide a support system. Our adoptable kitties numbers are always growing, and it is sometimes necessary to turn strays away as our current foster homes become overcrowded. Please, if you can help, or if you know someone who can help, call 375-7009 today.
Our Wish List
URGENT: We presently have 92 cats that we are housing. We are always in need of food and litter. While our foster home number is lower we also have a food bank that provides food to families that cannot afford to feed their pets and helps caretakers of feral cat colonies. If you can make a donation, please call
us at (203) 375-7009. Also, donations can be dropped off at 85 Champion Terrace, Stratford (on back patio) weather permitting.
Another way you can help – Please save all your cat food and litter coupons for us. Also, we save the PAW Points from Fresh Step Litter and redeem for coupons for free litter. Coupons and PAW Points can be mailed to: Stratford Cat Project, P.O. Box 1261, Stratford, 06615 or can be dropped off at any of our events.
Supply Donations Always Needed: We are in need of Friskies canned and dry food, wet wipes, trash bags 4, 8 and 13 gallons size, cat condos, litter, stamps, Walmart gift cards, bleach, scratching posts, rugs for cages, small plastic bags and paper towels.
Want to help but don't have time to volunteer or foster? How about sponsoring a cat? A sponsor is someone who is willing to make a monthly donation for the care of one of our long term feline friends. As we all know, kittens are easy to find homes for. Sometimes it takes much longer to find a home for the adult ones. A sponsor will receive a picture of the cat they sponsor and are always welcome to visit. If you are interested in becoming a sponsor, please call Karin at 375-7009.
ADOPTING A FRIEND
We do require that an adoption application and agreement be filled out. There is an adoption fee of $125.00 per cat/kitten. All of our cats are tested, wormed and have received their age appropriate shots. All cats/kittens will be spayed and neutered before adoption.
If you are interested in adopting a cat or a kitten or if you would like to know more about our organization please contact us at the e-mail below.
