Hi, I'm Maxine, and I play fetch!! (watch my video!) I'm hoping the 3rd time is the charm for me. I was adopted as a kitten, and had an amazing family but they recently were just evicted from their home and I was sooo sad I couldn't go with them -- they were devastated too! Then I went to Petsmart to find my new home, and I thought I did for 2 whole weeks! But they returned me because they discovered they were allergic to me and wanted to do some traveling. :( Now I'm desperately longing for a warm friendly lap to cuddle up in, someone I can run to when they call my name -- my foster mom can tell you how amazing I am. I am so incredibly loving -- I'll let you rub my belly all day long if you'd like. But I also am incredibly playful -- strings and fuzzy craft pipe cleaners twisted are my favorites. I like to play hide & seek, but don't worry -- I'll always come find you!! I'm a typical cat who's not fond of being carried around for long -- that's because I prefer to be following you, or cudding up beside (or on) you! I would prefer to be in my own home without other cats/dogs, as I was attacked by my last owner's cat, and I am afraid that I will get hurt again. I can't wait to show you how much love I have!!! Just please give me a chance!

About St. Francis Society Animal Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

St. Francis Society Animal Rescue is an all volunteer, non-profit 501-c-3 animal rescue organization dedicated to saving the lives of sick, injured, and stray domestic animals as well as spay/neuter and medical services for those animals. We seek to place animals in a loving foster or permanent home after recovery and we DO NOT euthanize unless terminal illness necessitates such a decision. All of our animals are spayed/neutered, tested for leukemia/FIV (cats), wormed and vaccinated before they are adopted.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Some of our cats ready for adoption can be seen at the following Adoption Center locations:

PetSmart, located at 12835 Citrus Park Dr across from the Citrus Park Mall. Our volunteers are onsite for adoptions Saturday and Sunday from 12:00pm to 5:00pm and will be happy to assist you with finding the perfect feline companion. PetSmart management can assist with an adoption during other days/hours, time permitting. Cats are onsite 7 days a week.

PetSmart, located at 11331 Causeway Blvd in Brandon. Cats and adoption counselors are onsite for adoptions Saturday from 9:00am to 3:00pm and Sunday from 10:30am to 2:30pm only.

Petco, located at 13127 N Dale Mabry Hwy. Cats and adoption counselors are onsite Saturdays from 11:00am to 4:00pm only.

We have many more cats than the ones housed at our Adoption Center locations. Our cats live with foster families until they are ready for adoption and space is available at an Adoption Center. If a cat is located in a foster home and the foster has provided contact information, you can get more details on a particular cat directly from them.

Our Adoption Process...

Cats are to be indoor only; no declawing; must present proof of pet deposit and copy of lease showing pets are allowed if renting. cats are spayed/neutered, up-to-date on age appropriate shots, wormed and defleaed. More is charged for exotic breeds (or mixed) - i.e. Siamese, Persians, Bengals, etc.
