Facts about Gem

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Tiger Striped
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
Foster mommy named me “Gem” because I am so precious. I was rescued when my original “owners” kicked me out for being in heat. They didn’t like the noises I made. It isn’t my fault they didn’t have me spayed! I decided to move over to a neighbor’s porch to eat with the feral kitties because my original owners didn’t buy me cat food. I was emaciated and covered in hundreds and hundreds of fleas – to the point where I was anemic and the vet had to give me subcutaneous fluids and antibiotics. I am so thankful that I no longer have fleas. My fur is starting to grow back and I am also gaining weight. I feel so good! Moving to a neighbor’s house was the best decision I could have ever made.
I am loving life in my foster home. Not only do I not have to worry about my next meal, but foster mom plays with me. My favorite toy is the feather stick. I am in a multi-cat home and am fine with the other cats. I was around large dogs, puppies and children in the home that abandoned me.

About Rainbow Connection Animal Foundation

About Our Rescue Group...

The Rainbow Connection Animal Foundation is a non-profit, no-kill, 100% volunteer animal rescue organization which rescues homeless, abandoned, and surrendered cats and kittens and ultimately places them in loving homes. We are also active in and practice Trap/Neuter/Release methods in order to maintain the feral and stray cat population.

WE DO NOT HAVE A SHELTER. WE ARE A SERIES OF FOSTER HOMES.

All RCAF cats/kittens are vaccinated, tested for FIV/FeLV, treated for parasites, and spayed/neutered. Each animal is placed in foster care and observed and socialized as needed. Adoptions take place in private homes, PETsMART stores, and veterinary clinics.

RCAF relies on donations, adoption fees and volunteer support in order to operate and continue rescuing homeless and abandoned cats.

Rainbow Connection has a 100% return policy which means in no uncertain terms, should the animal become ill, can no longer be cared for by the adopter or is simply no longer wanted, the animal is to be returned to Rainbow Connection. This ensures that this animal will never be homeless again in essence, Rainbow animals have a home forever.

ALL RAINBOW CATS/KITTENS ARE SPAYED OR NEUTERED PRIOR TO ADOPTION. THERE ARE NO EXCEPTIONS.

Our adoption donation fee is $85 per cat and/or kitten. All donations and are tax deductible.
