My name is Spot. My previous owners never took the time to socialize and spend time with me.  Most of my life, I spent it under their bed and from that, I developed a personality where I get scared and I can no longer trust easily anymore.  Last time when I gave my entire heart out, it wasn’t acknowledged, accepted nor reciprocated.  I do not know when the next time I might get thrown out again to have to fend for my own when I didn’t do anything wrong.  I felt like I was just an accessory and not a part of the family.

The people at Fancy Cats aren’t sure if my brother (Alpha) and I are close/bonded or not, as he adjusts to new surroundings and new people a lot easier compared to me.  I had quite a difficult time at the cat adoption center, as I was very hurt and had no idea what I did wrong to have that happen to me, so he and I fought a lot. 

After I got taken back to a foster home setting for some one on one attention, trust and love time, I finally got a chance to express myself.  I actually love giving head bumps and I can purr like a motor boat.  I enjoy being in your lap and I love to place my head on your neck to tell you how much I love you and just how special you are to me.  That you are my entire world, you are irreplaceable and I am completely loyal to you and only you.

But I can only show you all of those, if you give me the chance to; by being willing to really take the time and effort to work with me to get me to trust you.  To show me that you’ll love and treat me like I am a part of your family and I will never have to worry about being abandoned again.  That I can once again trust whole heartedly and it won’t get shattered this time.

I am not good with dogs or toddlers, since my previous owners never introduced any to me and they are both just too loud and fast, they scare me.  Cats, other animals, teens and adults on the other hand, if you give me time and space, we’ll eventually become friends.  Those who give me their time, effort and love; in return, I will give them all of my heart, love and life.

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.
