Hi, my name is Cleo. I'm a Domestic Short Hair Tortie. I was rescued as a stray last December. You may be too young to know the musical "My Fair Lady." It's the one with the song, "The rain in Spain stays mainly in the plain." There's a verse in one of the other songs that I consider to be my theme song.  "All I want is a room somewhere, Far away from the cold night air; With one enormous chair; Oh, wouldn't it be loverly?"  You see, I was scared and alone before these nice humans took me in. Life on the streets is really tough, especially when you're pregnant. Things sure have changed for the better since being found by TCPR. My three babies were born in a warm, safe house. They grew up and got adopted by compassionate, loving people, but now it's my turn to find a furever home. It's amazing how much I enjoy living inside with my friendly foster brother (a cat) and foster mom (a human). They've both been instrumental in helping me open up and become more affectionate. I'll admit it, I'm still rather shy and prefer the quiet life -- no rowdy parties or kitty-crazies for me. My foster mom calls me an "undercover cat" because I'm so quiet and have a ready-made camouflage coat. (Maybe I was a spy in a previous life.) Anyway, I am usually in "stealth mode" and never bother anybody. I don't demand attention or make any noise. A little rubbing under my chin or some petting on my back is always appreciated. I'm not much of a lap cat unless you keep feeding me soft, yummy treats. Once the treats are gone, so am I. You can usually find me cuddled up in the cushy, plush bed, which I LOVE! Please don't ever take away my little bed -- it's so "loverly." My idea of a perfect home is one that's quiet and doesn't have young kids or highly active dogs. Other gentle- natured cats are okay. Or I'd wouldn't mind being an only pet. One thing's for sure: I promise to always be polite and sweet, and I'll rub against your legs to show my love.

I'm altered, microchipped, and up to date on my vaccinations, including rabies.

About Twin Cities Pet Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Twin Cities Pet Rescue (TCPR) is a small, 501c3 nonprofit, companion animal rescue organization. TCPR does not have a facility and is 100% foster-based. TCPR rescues dogs, cats and small animals of all breeds; rescuing them from city impounds, puppy mills, and other situations of abuse and neglect. Once rescued, all animals receive veterinary care ranging from spay/neuter, vaccines, microchips, and basic testing to specialty eye surgeries, pet dermatology care, and various other specialty treatments. Once an animal is rescued by TCPR, it remains in a foster home until adopted, no matter how long that might take.
TCPR often rescues animals that are considered “less adoptable” by other rescue organizations, as they are often the ones overlooked and truly left behind; and in need of the most help. These animals might be overlooked due to their age, health status, special needs or breed. TCPR works to help as many animals in need find their furever families as we can, especially helping those animals that need help most.

Our Adoption Process...

All adopters complete an adoption application. If approved, we arrange a meet and greet. Cats and small animals can be adopted and go home at the time of the meet and greet after the adoption agreement is complete and adoption fee collected (which is variable based on animal type, etc). For dogs, we complete home visits and then finalize the adoption.
