Facts about Micah

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Tortoiseshell
  • Age: Senior
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 9720340
  • Hair: Short

Micah is an incredibly sweet and easy going lady, with huge green eyes that just melt the heart. Her family was heartbroken at having to give her up and now she is looking for a new family who can return all the love she has to give. She loves being petted and will hold her head up so you can scratch her under the chin. She loves to be near her humans so will sit beside you and occasionally crawl in your lap, but she is not a cuddler. One of her favorite past times is to nap the day away on her human’s bed or in a sunny window, and if you take a nap during the day, she will join you. However she is still playful and enjoys playing fetch, and trying to catch lasers and strings. She’s also great at stalking any stink bugs or spiders that may sneak in. She has been in a home with other cats but would thrive as an only cat or with a laid back pal since she likes to be the boss. Micah tolerates the dogs in her foster home though she'd rather not play with them. She has a history of bladder stones, but as long as she has access to fresh running water and wet food, she stays healthy. She is well trained to use her scratching posts and does not attack curtains or furniture. She could be your perfect companion!

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.
