 Hi! My name is Bartlebee, but my foster mom calls me 'Lai Lai' (which means 'come' in Chinese). Even though I am a tiny guy, I am a ball of energy and I absolutely love to play! I am pretty much like a tiny black puppy, but I’m all feline.  I fetch, I jump, I come when called, I cuddle with you, I chase you, I wag my tail for you, I head bump and purr at you, you can pick me up, I will lay with you.  But you don’t need to walk me and I am not loud, plus I’m quite the exquisite acrobat, so I am the best of both worlds (and if you have me, you will too!) Playtime is my life, you’ll see my tail wag when I get excited and interested. Playtime makes me happy and helps to get me to trust and bond with you.  But not everyone appreciates that.  My last owner threw me out on the street to fend for myself only after having me for 3 weeks, because she says that she doesn’t like a kitty who plays hard and gets excited. I walked many miles from her house, and was outside for a month and a half. Finally on the 3rd of July, when I was running away from fireworks, I found myself a FCRT volunteer’s house that has been set up to be a pretty awesome place to stay.  So, I decide to stay and stick around.  Even though I am suspected to be around 4 years old, I haven't grown out of my kitten phase yet.  So if you decide you want me, please make sure to play with me and don’t be scared of a couple love bites or love scratches!  I promise, I’m working on being more and more gentle during playtime every day. Because of my journey outside, I prefer no kids under 6 years or dogs if possible.  I might not be such a great companion with timid and shy kitties.  Otherwise, I’d love to have another kitty playmate whom I can spend time with and play with when our human is busy.

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.
