Hi my name is Horus. I am exotic orangish/cream colored guy with different markings. I was rescued at the last minute from a shelter in New York along with my mom and sister. I am very shy around new people and need time to adjust. I get very nervous being at adoption fairs at Petsmart so no one has realized yet what a great kitty I am. I'm not a lap kitty, no time for that! I'm too busy checking on all my kitty friends and making sure they've gotten all their daily hugs and snuggles! I do appreciate the finer things in feline life like tasty canned food and a soft cat bed to sleep in. I love to be petted, anytime I can squeeze a petting in. I love to be brushed or combed as well. I get along mostly with teenagers my age we have so much more in common (like trying seek out the bedroom to go downstairs, play with strings, etc) so I would probably love other young cat siblings. I eat dry food as well as canned. I love looking out the windows and watching the birds and squirrels go by. I would be an awesome addition to your household, if you just give me a chance to show you. Just promise to love me, play with me, brush me, pet me a lot, give me time to adjust, for me to gain trust and I will love you forever!  These pictures are not up to date.  Horus is a young cat, not a kitten.

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.
