Facts about Mufasa

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Orange Or Red
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 8997194
  • Hair: Short

When this stray entered my life in November 2014, he sauntered into the house, looked at me briefly and then proceeded to go up the stairs, stop at the landing and strike a regal pose as he surveyed his new kingdom.  So, of course his new name became Mufasa for both his bearing and large, tawny appearance.  Mufusa is a loving cat who enjoys sleeping on your chest, being stroked, and playing with toys, strings, shoelaces and wiggling fingers, though he’s careful to keep his claws retracted when fingers are involved.  He purrs easily and often and enjoys head-butting his humans.  And wonder of wonders, he allows his nails to be clipped with only a little grousing. Mufasa will say good morning, afternoon, evening, night and anything in between.  He enjoys verbal bantering and isn’t shy about expressing his desire to go outside.  In another life, he must have been Houdini, as he has managed to slip out of 8 harnesses when taken outside, so he really needs either a fenced yard or a quiet neighborhood where he can safely roam. Mufasa has bright gold eyes, has all his shots, and is neutered.  He has also been chipped, so his new human can change the information on his home when he’s adopted.  He is well trained to use the litter box and has never had an accident, so if you want an affectionate lion who will talk and purr his way into your heart, Mufasa is a great choice so long as you can let him outside when he wants to explore.

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.
