Hi! My name is Lucky. I am a white domestic short hair boy cat with distinctive black markings on my head and back and a black tail, and I am looking for a new home. I am healthy and my shots are up to date and I even had my teeth cleaned recently!

My last person originally adopted me from Fancy Cats and even though she loves me like crazy and calls me her best bud she sadly had to return me to Fancy Cats - she has to move to another state now and find a new job. Won’t you please consider adopting me?

Here are some things that I hope will make you love me -

Not only do I have a great personality I am also a very handsome boy! I think I have a happy-go-lucky, carefree attitude about life. I like to know what’s going and be where the action is. Sometimes when dinner is on the stove I jump onto the very top of the kitchen cupboards so I can keep track of things. I love sitting on a high cat tree, especially one near a window, but I also like to have a comfy bed on the floor to call my own. Even though I am in indoor cat I enjoy sitting on a screened porch in the sunshine and watching the birds and squirrels.  Like many cats, I also like to climb inside boxes, but they have to fit me just right. If you give me one that doesn’t fit I just might make it fit by biting off the sides! I’m silly that way. I also love a good fitting basket to sit in.

Even though everyone knows I am just a cuddly baby, I would prefer to be considered the alpha male of the house.  I have a tendency to play a bit rough, (although I don’t realize it) so very timid cats might consider me a threat, but I like to play, and seriously, I just want to have a good time. I kind of think I might enjoy being the only cat in the house, but I can tolerate others. I am not used to being around kids and dogs much at all so I am not sure how I would like that, but in general I like being around people.

For dinner I like my canned turkey Wellness the best and I like to snack on a healthy dry food, maybe a bit too much because I am a teeny bit chubby right now. I am not very fond of fishy food. Sometimes I eat all of the food at mealtime so the girl cats in the house cannot have any and then all that extra food comes right back up, so you don’t want to let me eat too much. LOL!  Temptations treats are the only treats I like, and then only if you throw them across the room for me to catch. That is a lot of fun. Sometimes I catch them before they fall to the floor! It is also fun to run from one end of the house to the other, jumping on the windowsills and giving loud meows! I also lovvvve me some catnip!

Once I trust you I love to head butt and snuggle. I can purr really loud. I like to sleep on the end of your bed at night, and sometimes when I get lonely I like to snuggle up really close.  I can be very snuggly, and then other times I just want to sleep by myself. There are just so many interesting things to learn about me - please come and meet me and consider making me your forever friend! Love always, Lucky.

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.
