Pretty Woman With Power Stripes

“Good morning! At least I think it’s morning – can’t see outside too well! Anyway, I know that I’m Memphis and that I’m a very pretty woman – mostly tabby, with occasional splashes of white – and stunning spot stripes on my sides. That’s who I am – Good Morning!”

“I’m sweet, and I’m friendly. Got my name because, it seems, I was singing this song: ‘Walking in Memphis, I was walking with my feet ten feet off of Beale, Walking in Memphis, But do I really feel the way I feel?’ To tell you the truth, I’ve been pondering that question ever since I got here – ‘do I really feel the way I feel?’ Actually, I think that, when animal control arrested me, I was walking in Bloomington – but that doesn’t fit well in the song. Ah, me!”

“Ah, me! So I’m sweet and friendly, and, alas, somewhere along the line I’ve acquired the FeLV. Maybe in Memphis, maybe in Bloomington, maybe from my momma. I certainly don’t feel sick – and don’t plan to – but I do need to stay away from luckier cats – and indoors, away from germs. I can sit prettily in your living room and listen to some W. C. Handy – or even Elvis – on your sound system or boom box.”

“I can also provide entertainment. Bring me a feather toy – the kind that flies around. Wave it for me, and watch me wave back. Woo hoo! It’s a hot time in the old town tonight! Talk to you, sing to you, purr to you – Memphis can do it. She would like to do it. Memphis is ready to be your very own cat – probably your only cat, unless one of the other cats here with FeLV strikes your fancy. We’re all warm and friendly. Invite me to your home. Exchange $120 with the humans here at Feline Rescue, and take me with you. OK, it’s now afternoon. Memphis is still a pretty woman!”

If you'd like to know more about me), just stop in at the Adoption Center to meet me or leave a message for my human assistant at 651-642-5900 ext. 3. She'll call you back.

About Feline Rescue, Inc.

Our Adoption Process...

By adopting a Feline Rescue cat you will be supporting a caring, no-kill shelter and making room for one more homeless cat. We are always looking for good, safe, loving homes for our many cats and kittens. We want to be sure placements are a success for both parties, so before we send our feline friends home with anyone, we ask you to fill out a basic questionnaire. Since we work with cats everyday we will be able to suggest a perfect match to your needs. If a sponsorship fits your schedule better, you may support a cat of your choice and we will send you pictures and updates. All of our cats are feline leukemia/FIV tested, fecal tested, neutered/spayed, vaccinated and all of our kittens are vet checked, fecal checked and given their first set of shots. All receive high-quality veterinary care and exams. We charge an adoption fee to offset these costs. Adoption Hours: We are open seven days a week for adoptions, but our hours do vary because we are staffed entirely by volunteers. Call (651) 642-5900 for specific times and more information.
