Facts about Gypsy

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Black (All)
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
Four years ago, Gypsy was abandoned and left to fend for herself outside a local motel. She searched for the family that abandoned her, hoping they might come back to find her. But they never did. For the next three years, Gypsy would live outside, foraging for food, giving birth to many litters of kittens, and never knowing the security or love that comes from being in a forever home. All that changed when an extended stay guest called CARE to get help for her. She was so happy to be rescued and taken care of. She loves attention and can't seem to get enough. She plays like a kitten and rolls over when she sees you because she is so happy.

Gyspy has been searching for her perfect family for one year now. She might not be a cute kitten anymore. She might be an ordinary black cat, not an exotic Maine Coon or a blue-eyed Siamese. But we believe that even though her appearance may be ordinary, her personality is anything but ordinary. We believe she is worthy of a forever home. Please give this beautiful girl the chance she's been waiting for all her life.


Please apply online and ask her foster mom Sandy all about her.

Our Adoption Process...

Prior to adoption, every CARE cat/kitten has received a thorough exam from a veterinarian, has tested negative for FIV/Felv (except as otherwise noted), been spayed/neutered, dewormed, given flea preventative, and been inoculated against distemper. Rabies vaccine is given if the feline is over 4 months. Any other desirable medical attention has also been provided. Also, each cat/kitten has spent its rescued time in a private home in foster care being loved and assessed for temperament and personality, needs, likes and dislikes.

After your approval by our volunteers, a legal contract is signed with an adoption donation attached (this donation helps defray the medical costs incurred); and, you receive a free vet office visit at a participating vet within the first week.
Adoption Fee is a Donation.
