Facts about Isabelle

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Brown Or Chocolate (Mostly)
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 7006798
  • Hair: Short

Our little Isabelle is one of the most gentle and unassuming cats you'll ever meet. Her brown tabby coat is super soft and she looks like a miniature lioness with her golden eyes and snub nose. She came to us as a stray who'd just had kittens. Though she spent her whole life roaming outside and scrounging for food on the streets, she has adapted very well to living in a home with adults, younger children and other pets. She is still quite shy with new people and tends to hide under a table or bed where she can watch them until she determines they're safe. Once she gets to know you, she likes to greet you with tiny mews and gentle head butts when you enter the room. She loves being petted from head to toe, and especially enjoys cheek rubs and tail root scratches. She'll flop over on her side to let you pet her while she kneads contentedly with her tiny white front paws. Sometimes she can get overstimulated and will lean over to give you a soft nip when she's ready to take a break from petting, but she has never bitten or scratched anyone under any circumstances. She has excellent litterbox manners, and gets along well with adults, calm children, other cats and cat-friendly dogs. She would be fine as an only cat, also.

About Fancy Cats Rescue Team, Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

Fancy Cats Rescue Team was founded to provide the community a "safety net" for cats and kittens that are abused and abandoned, or added to the euthanasia list at the shelters that we are currently participating with. We are a 501 (c) (3) Nonprofit Organization and participate with the United Way/CFC #8929. The goal is to have no kill shelters in place. Education and responsible pet ownership are the foundation of our organization. Our program provides literature, counseling, referral services and educational resources to families and individuals needing guidance. Teaching people responsible pet guardianship by spay and neutering their pets, behavioral modification and health concerns. We also provide a mentoring environment for our youth volunteers where they can learn the rewards of community service while caring for animals that need their gentle, loving kindness. They also interact with the community providing self-confidence and the ability to interact with a variety of cultures and diverse backgrounds. Once an animal is received into our program, they remain with us until a safe, appropriate home is found. They are never euthanized based on their age or space limitations. They are given appropriate medical care, immunizations, spays or neuters and endless hours of tender, loving care. We are an all-volunteer organization with no paid staff. We are funded by community donations, 91% goes toward the care and well being of our animals. Our adoption fees help offset our veterinary bills.

Our Adoption Process...

Our adopters fill out an application that screens for problems that may be detrimental to our cats and kittens. Once the adopter is approved we provide veterinary referrals which help with low cost spays or neuters for the kittens that are too young at the time of adoption. We are always available to help with behavioral issues that arise. We provide numerous information sheets in our adoption folders, plus the medical background of each cat. The only fees involved with our program are adoption fees that offset our veterinary bills.
