Facts about Elsie

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Black & White Or Tuxedo
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
Meet Elsie, a absolute love bug and classic black and white “cow” kitty. She was just a kitten herself when she became a mom. With the help of CARE and a kind lady who cared for her, her babies all found their forever homes. Elsie wanted to find hers too, so her foster mom brought her to stay at Petsmart so potential adopters could fall in love with her. Without a family to love and spend time with, Elsie became sad and withdrawn. Thankfully Elsie found a foster home and she is now happy that she can be with a family, but she really hopes to find her true forever home soon. She is just two years old and loves to play or will just sit peacefully on the couch with you. Contact Cat's Cradle Rescue at 804-467-6528 or

Our Adoption Process...

Prior to adoption, every CARE cat/kitten has received a thorough exam from a veterinarian, has tested negative for FIV/Felv (except as otherwise noted), been spayed/neutered, dewormed, given flea preventative, and been inoculated against distemper. Rabies vaccine is given if the feline is over 4 months. Any other desirable medical attention has also been provided. Also, each cat/kitten has spent its rescued time in a private home in foster care being loved and assessed for temperament and personality, needs, likes and dislikes.

After your approval by our volunteers, a legal contract is signed with an adoption donation attached (this donation helps defray the medical costs incurred); and, you receive a free vet office visit at a participating vet within the first week.
Adoption Fee is a Donation.
