  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 10411870
  • Hair: Short

Cayenne is an adult spayed female cat, probably born in 2014-2015.  She's a tiny cat, barely bigger than a kitten herself, but she gave birth to seven adorable kittens and adopted another when he was 5 weeks old.   Her remaining daughters are Salton Pepper, Sargent Pepper, Bell Pepper, and Pepper Jacki.  They have been in a home environment since birth and all are very sweet.  They have just joined the kindergarten room at the shelter and are having a ball with their new buddies.  This family is very tight-knit, so unless things unravel now that they are in public, it might be best to adopt the kittens in pairs, but Cayenne has been grateful for some separation.

Eight kittens kept Cayenne hopping, but she always had time to play with her foster parents.  She loves to be petted and doesn't mind being held for a moment or two, but it seems like every time Cayenne was getting attention, the kittens got jealous and started acting Cayenne had to get down and dispense discipline!  She doesn't seem bothered by dogs and let an adult male cat join her kittens and hang out with the family, so she's remarkably patient and accepting.  She's an all around great cat and she's (finally) ready to find a forever home of her own.

About Cat's Cradle Shelter, Inc.

About Our Shelter...

Cat’s Cradle Shelter, Inc. is a non-profit, volunteer-run, no-kill shelter located in Fargo, ND. We opened on January 1, 2012. Our mission is to create a more humane and compassionate world, one cat at time. Cat’s Cradle is a colony-based shelter with 7 colony rooms and an isolation/medical room with seven private units (plus room for additional temporary units). We utilize foster homes for kittens less than 8 or 10 weeks old and for cats needing extra medical care or socialization/attention. Most of our residents are last-chance pound rescues. We typically have between 60 and 90 cats in care (it varies with need), and adopt 30-40 each month (hopefully more!). Cat’s Cradle is part of new, multi-disciplinary effort (three cooperating rescues, staff from three pounds, animal control officers, veterinarians, and community supporters) to reduce the number of adoptable cats being killed in area pounds.

Come Meet Our Pets...

9 9th Street South, Fargo, ND
Open houses Tuesdays 4-7pm and Saturdays 10am-4pm. If these times don't work for you, please call us at 701-356-7877 and we will arrange a private visit. Please be aware that there is usually at least a 24 hour delay between filling out an application and bringing a cat home, as we need time to check references.

Our Adoption Process...

Cat's Cradle requires an application, site visit, and interview. If a prospective adopter rents their home, we will call the landlord to confirm that pets are allowed on the property. Our adoption counselors will work hard to find the best match for the both family and the shelter cat. Our 2012 adoption fee is $109. This includes: intake health exam & FEL/FIV screening; 3 doses of roundworm de-wormer (and other parasite screening/treatment when necessary); age-appropriate vaccinations (rabies and distemper, including booster shots for kittens); spay or neuter surgery; microchip; and any other medical treatment recommended by the attending or consulting veterinarian(s) (for injury, illness, infection, etc). We allow a three week trial period to make sure that the cat and his/her new family are a good match, and if things don't work out...we always want our cats back! We prefer to adopt in our own area because A) we insist on meeting prospective families and B) we will not risk shipping our cats. We reserve the right to decline to adopt any cat into a situation that we feel will not meet his/her needs.
