Facts about Rainbow

  • Breed: American Shorthair
  • Color: Calico Or Dilute Calico
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 8032381
  • Hair: Short

Rainbow and his sister Dixie were born around the end of September 2013. They love springy toys that crinkle and bounce and cozy places to nap together. They are both gorgeous cats with a mix of spotted and marble tabby markings. Rainbow is especially beautiful with his buff tabby coloring and the lovely golden eyeliner he has around his eyes. Rainbow and Dixie both have a slight ear tip because they were supposed to return to the yard where they had been trapped, but they proved themselves ready to make the move indoors by accepting cuddles and kisses from the CatVando volunteers and they've both been known to purr.  They get along well with other cats and large dogs, though they are not as fond of small dogs . Although both cats do love to cuddle, they will need more socialization in their future home because they have been known to be quite shy on occasion.

About CatVando TNR Corp

About Our Rescue Group...

Our primary mission is to prevent kittens through a Trap Neuter Return (TNR) program. However, sometimes we get Trap Neuter Adoption (TNA’s). When shelters are full, we foster, socialize and vet the kittens. This part of our program also involves local youths in the care of kittens in addition to our TNR efforts.

While in our system, kittens are fed a good quality Grain-Free Kibble and care is taken to assure their long and healthy life to the extent possible. We supplement for specific issues i.e. Pro-biotics, EFA's, immune boosters and sometimes digestive enzymes.. Many are exposed to dogs and are comfortable with them. They’ve been exposed to many wonderful volunteers of all ages.

When possible we capture the mama with the litter to assure their fuller development. Many times we keep them together for 9-12 weeks. Our adoption fee covers spay neuter surgery, FVRCP & Rabies vaccinations, parasite, ear mite & flea treatment when necessary, and a micro chip. And some of them have a small ear tip—just a reminder that you’ve given a cat a home that could have otherwise had to fend for itself, on the streets.

Our adopted cats and kittens are welcome back for the duration of their life in the event the adoption doesn’t work out, or if it becomes impossible for you to keep the cat. We’re always available for consultation about behavior, health, or referrals to assistance beyond our scope.
