Facts about Skittles

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Black (Mostly)
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 10014461
  • Hair: Short

Little Skittles came to Catvando when her elderly person was moved into an assisted living home.  It has been a big change for her to come from a quiet home to a busy shelter situation and through it all she has been her sweet self.  When you take the time to talk to her and scratch behind her ears and under her chin, she purrs and nudges to encourage more petting.  She even purrs while chasing toys, especially string toys.  In fact, even though she is a little shy, she purrs when you look at her and talk to her.  Besides her gentle personality she is a pretty black and white tuxedo with a white tipped tail.  She is very adaptable, gets along with all the cats she meets, has no bad habits and doesn't ask for much.  She has been here a long time but doesn't give up hope that someone will want to take her home, and she is often the first one to greet visitors.   We think she would be happiest in a quiet stable adult home with a cat companion or two.

About CatVando TNR Corp

About Our Rescue Group...

Our primary mission is to prevent kittens through a Trap Neuter Return (TNR) program. However, sometimes we get Trap Neuter Adoption (TNA’s). When shelters are full, we foster, socialize and vet the kittens. This part of our program also involves local youths in the care of kittens in addition to our TNR efforts.

While in our system, kittens are fed a good quality Grain-Free Kibble and care is taken to assure their long and healthy life to the extent possible. We supplement for specific issues i.e. Pro-biotics, EFA's, immune boosters and sometimes digestive enzymes.. Many are exposed to dogs and are comfortable with them. They’ve been exposed to many wonderful volunteers of all ages.

When possible we capture the mama with the litter to assure their fuller development. Many times we keep them together for 9-12 weeks. Our adoption fee covers spay neuter surgery, FVRCP & Rabies vaccinations, parasite, ear mite & flea treatment when necessary, and a micro chip. And some of them have a small ear tip—just a reminder that you’ve given a cat a home that could have otherwise had to fend for itself, on the streets.

Our adopted cats and kittens are welcome back for the duration of their life in the event the adoption doesn’t work out, or if it becomes impossible for you to keep the cat. We’re always available for consultation about behavior, health, or referrals to assistance beyond our scope.
