Facts about Pearl

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Black & White Or Tuxedo
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 10092159
  • Hair: Short

Pearl is a wonderful, loving, sweet cat.. very social with other cats and people. Unfortunately Pearl has recently lost her life partner, Pirate who passed away this past year. Pirate and Pearl grew up together and were inseparable. After the loss of Pirate, she has begun to obsessively over groom herself, plucking her hair from her legs and belly. She has 2 other cats with her still that she has lived with for many years but they seem to gang up on her and bully her around. She is in need of someone who can give her the one on one attention and love. She is very good with other cats and has been with them her whole life but she would really benefit from being an only cat at this time in her life. She is very social will snuggle with you, sit on your lap and rub against you all day long.. she is honestly a wonderful sweet girl. She is 100% litter box trained and has NEVER had an accident outside of the box in her entire life. She needs a companion to spend the rest of her life with, she is very talkative, you'll always know shes around. She needs to be heard when she enters the room you will definitely not be lonely with this little girl. I am heartbroken to even be considering re-homing her but unfortunately with the other 2 cats at home and her losing her best friend I cannot give her what she really needs, that one on one love and affection. I have tried and considered many other options and I just really feel in my heart that this is what will be the best for her. She loves and is very great with children and just adores men and little girls especially. She is a real lover.

She is a talker, a real chatty cathy this one! She loves her catnip mice and is very playful. She makes the most adorable little chirps and birdlike noises all the time, she she is really a special girl, very loving and affectionate!

About Fancy Cats Rescue Team, Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

Fancy Cats Rescue Team was founded to provide the community a "safety net" for cats and kittens that are abused and abandoned, or added to the euthanasia list at the shelters that we are currently participating with. We are a 501 (c) (3) Nonprofit Organization and participate with the United Way/CFC #8929. The goal is to have no kill shelters in place. Education and responsible pet ownership are the foundation of our organization. Our program provides literature, counseling, referral services and educational resources to families and individuals needing guidance. Teaching people responsible pet guardianship by spay and neutering their pets, behavioral modification and health concerns. We also provide a mentoring environment for our youth volunteers where they can learn the rewards of community service while caring for animals that need their gentle, loving kindness. They also interact with the community providing self-confidence and the ability to interact with a variety of cultures and diverse backgrounds. Once an animal is received into our program, they remain with us until a safe, appropriate home is found. They are never euthanized based on their age or space limitations. They are given appropriate medical care, immunizations, spays or neuters and endless hours of tender, loving care. We are an all-volunteer organization with no paid staff. We are funded by community donations, 91% goes toward the care and well being of our animals. Our adoption fees help offset our veterinary bills.

Our Adoption Process...

Our adopters fill out an application that screens for problems that may be detrimental to our cats and kittens. Once the adopter is approved we provide veterinary referrals which help with low cost spays or neuters for the kittens that are too young at the time of adoption. We are always available to help with behavioral issues that arise. We provide numerous information sheets in our adoption folders, plus the medical background of each cat. The only fees involved with our program are adoption fees that offset our veterinary bills.
