Starburst's Story...
starStarburst is a gorgeous calico with a sweet and calm disposition. She was found as a very pregnant stray and went into a wonderful foster home so she could give birth and raise her kittens.

One day her foster mom noticed her looking uncomfortable and had one of our staff come check on her. Soon Starburst was being rushed in for an emergency C-Section! Luckily, all 4 kittens were delivered successfully. After such a demanding surgery, Starburst wasn’t feeling up to nursing and rejected her kittens at first. Luckily after 2 days of round the clock bottle feedings for the kittens, momma Starburst decided she was feeling motherly and wanted her babies back! She was an excellent mother and all 4 kittens turned out healthy and well socialized. Mom and kittens stayed in their foster home getting lots of love and attention until the kittens were about 10 weeks old and ready for adoption. All four kittens found homes within a few days. Their lovely momma has been here for a few weeks now though and is hoping her turn to be adopted comes soon.

Starburst is estimated to be around 3-5 years old and is a sweet, easy going girl. She enjoys laying by the windows, alternating bird watching with napping. She likes being petted and fussed over. Starburst should do well with other calm, mellow cats and will likely adjust well to quiet dogs also. She would prefer a home without loud or rambunctious dogs or children.

Starburst does have some arthritis from what appears to be an old wound that healed itself without any medical intervention. She definitely suffered some type of trauma – possibly even being hit by a car. She doesn’t let her arthritis get her down though, and a joint supplement daily seems to keep her feeling pretty bouncy.

Starburst has been spayed, FELV/FIV tested, microchipped, vaccinated, has had fecal testing, and is current on parasite prevention. She’d love to find a home soon – please come meet this great cat!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Starburst, a Ann Arbor Calico cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Calico for sale in Ann Arbor, or seeking a Calico cat from a breeder in Ann Arbor.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Ann Arbor already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Ann Arbor breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Calico breeders who help with Calico rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Ann Arbor paves the way for another one to be saved.
