  • Breed: American Shorthair
  • Color: Cream Or Ivory (Mostly)
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
Mitzy is a love dove. We thought he was female and were surprised at the vet appt. But he knows his name, so some call him Mitchy and some still call him Mitzy. The kitty my neighbors left behind to fend for himself several months ago......He was an outdoor cat for years. They have no idea what a great kitty they were missing out on by not loving him. He is so gentle and loving. He gives bear hugs, and snuggles up with you purring so loud. He looks at you with love and gratitude. He uses the kitty door, and spends a lot of time outside. But comes when he is called, and sleeps on his heating pad every night. He is also starting to play. I think he would be great with kids, since he is so tolerant and gentle. In fact until I rescued him, the only person in the neighborhood who could pet him was a 8 year old boy....He would sit outside his house and wait for him for hours. Now he realizes people won't hurt him, and while inside is super friendly with strangers. He is fixed, vaccinated for indoor/oudoor shots and microchips. And for living outside for so long, he has great litter box habits. Not one accident, and so far no scratching of the furniture......he is a great kitty./ Mitchy is 10 is microchipped, fixed, and indoor/outdoor shots. He is fiv, leukemia and heartworm negative....His adoption fee is $50

About Miller's Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

We specialize in healthy, fiv+ kitties. But do have other kitties in our program as well. Fiv is an immune deficiency which kitties get from fighting. Usually unneutered males fighting for territory, food sources and females. Once fixed and loved and fed daily the need to fight for these things disappears. Most of our fiv+ kitties are fostered with other non fiv kitties, and proven to be friendly.

There are lots of myths and misinformation about fiv. To simply it, an fiv kitty is a kitty with a lower immune system. If they get hurt or sick it could take them longer to heal. Fiv does not cause disease, it is a secondary issue of how your kitty will react to primary issue. Most fiv kitties die from geriatric issues without any more vet care than other kitties.

Here are some links to learn more about fiv

Come Meet Our Pets...

We are a foster home based rescued. Therefore, the majority of our animals are in peoples homes. This is perfect for adopters who have very specific needs on the animal they adopt. We know our animals well, and what types of homes we feel they will thrive best.

Our Adoption Process...

Our fees are $50-$150 depending of the age of the kitty and the amount of vetting. Most of our adult kitties are $50, most of our kittens are $125-$150, which includes all shots, microchip and spay/neuter.

We will send you an application, once approved, we will schedule a playdate with the animal. We do require a home visit. The animal then goes on trial for a couple weeks to a month. We want to make sure the animal is a good fit for your family. Even after the trial period if you can not keep the animal at anytime we will take them back into our program.
