I am already spayed, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, and not good with cats.
Rita is an affectionate little girl with an endearing disability--she has rickets, so she walks a little funny (see the adorable video!). Someone dumped her on the streets, so we don't know much about her except what her xrays tell us. She's over 3 years old and her bones didn't grow straight. She's happiest watching TV with you or following you around the house. Her disability makes her nervous about other cats, though, so she'd feel best having you all to herself! She takes daily meds (sprinkled into her food) to help protect against joint pain. To arrange to meet Rita at one of our adoption events, contact her foster home, 312-404-4662, or email firstname.lastname@example.org. We hold weekly events on Sunday on Capitol Hill in DC.
We are a group of private households who rescue and find homes for cats and kittens abandoned at several shelters, most of which have the high kill rate typical of large metropolitan areas. We also do street rescue of placeable cats and kittens and cooperate with local feral rescuers as time and space permit. We do it to save lives.

Our Adoption Process...
Prospective adopters fill in an application form at the adoption event. We do landlord and veterinary reference checks before proceeding to the next stage, which involves a home visit where the cat or kitten will be living. The cat or kitten is spayed or neutered before placement; cost is included in the adoption fee (currently $80). The contract requires that the cat or kitten be indoors-only and that it cannot be declawed. In addition, we do not place single kittens unless the household has another cat or kitten who needs a friend; otherwise it has to be two kittens together.
