Important Note

Cleo is best friends with Tony. Please adopt both of them so they can stay together!

Cleo was originally rescued out in Denver and moved here with her family, and must now find a new home. She is a super friendly cat who will greet everyone who walks in the door with purrs and offers to snuggle. This expressive tabby likes to be up high, and that includes spending time with you. If given the opportunity, expect to find Cleo perched on your shoulder (she doesn't mind if you get up and walk around - shoulder rides are fun!). She is a playful girl, both with her brother and with people, and likes to chat about the world around her (based on the shape of her face and voice, we strongly suspect she's got some Siamese in her). She is very gentle and patient with young children - she's been chased around and had her tail grabbed, and not once has she ever hissed or lashed out with claws (although she may look for a nearby adult and request rescue, perhaps in the form of a shoulder that's out of reach of small children). Cleo would very much like to be the first thing you see in the morning when you wake up to find her curled at your feet, sleeping comfortably; as well as the last thing you see at night - also curled at your feet, sleeping comfortably. Cleo is fine as a solo cat, or as a pair with her brother Tony.

About Tails High, Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

Our Organization

Tails High is a cat rescue and adoption organization based in Alexandria, Virginia founded and staffed by compassionate volunteers who find joy in placing stray, abandoned, or homeless cats and kittens in permanent loving homes. We know that there is a perfect rescue cat for everyone.

In making wonderful feline-human matches, Tails High is dedicated to helping both rescued cats and kittens and their human families by providing wonderful cats to people looking for a sympathetic ear and a soft purr. We believe that cats are ideal companions: highly intelligent, and therapeutic.

Our Cats

All our cats and kittens have tested negative for feline leukemia and FIV, are current on their vaccinations, and have been or will be spayed or neutered prior to adoption. We spend a lot of time playing and cuddling with our rescue kitties, as well as socializing them, and making sure they learn to love their people as much as their people love them.

Our Adoption Process...

We have a Foster-To-Adopt program that allows you to test the cat in your home for a period of time on a trial basis before finalizing the adoption. In fact, when you have another pet in the home (whether it’s a dog, another cat, birds, rabbit, ferret, etc.) or you have young kids or elderly parents living with you, we recommend that you do a Foster-To-Adopt to make sure it is a good fit for you and your family as well as resident pets and the Tails High cat or kitten(s) you’ve selected. Our goal is to make every effort to match people with the cats or kittens that fit their lifestyle and vice versa.

What costs are involved in adopting a cat from Tails High?

All of the cats and kittens at Tails High are fully vetted at the time of adoption. They are FELV/FIV combo tested, vaccinated against rabies and distemper, and they have been spayed or neutered to protect against the feline population increasing.

As of May 2015, the adoption fee is $145 for single cat or kitten and $225 for a pair. This is a huge savings to the adopter considering if you took the same cat to a veterinarian for a spay or neuter surgery and vaccinations the cost would be upwards of $300-500 per cat.
