Might Blossom Best as an Only Kitty or In a Home with Other Non-dominant cats.

Beautiful Belle has been seeking her forever home for quite some time now, and is not having much success at finding someone to recognize her special qualities. Belle is truly a loveable and sweet brown tabby girl with the prettiest white paws. Belle has sort of been tossed around in her life; she had a home for six years, but then suddenly was turned over to a local open shelter where her chances of finding a new home were pretty much slim to none. Luckily, OAR heard of her plight, brought her to the rescue, and is giving her the chance she deserves for a loving home. At the local open shelter Belle developed a terrible URI, but once at OAR with much love and care by the OAR medical team, and a super foster mom, Belle soon got all better so she could continue her search for her future happy home. Belle’s foster mom says she is the sweetest kitty ever! She loved to snuggle, and did what her foster mom calls the “Belle Flop” (showing you her tummy, which she likes to have rubbed). When on the sofa, Belle would come up and lean into her foster mom leaving NO space between them. This was called the “Belle Lean.” She NEVER got tired of petting, and would lie on her foster mom’s lap for an entire movie enjoying scratching and pets. Belle is a complete “person” kitty. She is also playful, and sometimes would chase her own tail. She loved kisses, and would sometimes give head-butts on foster mom’s chin. It was not long before Belle was sleeping on their bed. Belle can sometimes be a little skittish; not shy necessarily, because she likes new people as well as the people she knows, but she will scurry at any loud noise or new situation. We feel pretty confident as Belle feels more secure in her forever home, her insecurity will subside. She will make a wonderful companion. She enjoys being with people without being overly needy. One other cute thing Belle does at the rescue is talks to her caretakers. She wants to know about your day and tell you about hers. Belle would probably blossom best if she could find a home where she could be an only-kitty, or in a home with other “non-dominant” cats. So, if you want a lovely lap cat to watch movies, and also a sleeping companion, please pay Belle a visit at OAR during open adoption hours. She really is delightful...

Our Adoption Process...

We have many cats and kittens looking for wonderful homes! All of our cats are spayed/neutered, up-to-date on vaccinations, tested for FIV and Feline Leukemia, and microchipped. Adoption fee is $50. Because we like for our cats to go home in pairs, we have a standing 2 for 1 adoption special -- you can adopt 2 cats for one fee of $50.

Meet some of our cats and kittens, and fill out an application today! An OAR representative will get in touch with you to discuss your application. We do require a phone screening before an adoption so if you are coming to visit the cats and hope to take a cat or kitten home that day, fill out and submit the application at least a day beforehand so we can pre-approve your adoption.

As of 3/7/12, our adoption policy requires that the adopters of our cats not declaw the cats, no matter what the cat's age. We will, with our adoption counselors' help, provide potential adopters with information on alternatives to declawing. We also sometimes have previously declawed cats up for adoption. These can be a good alternative for adopters who are adamant about declawing.
