Facts about Susan

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Brown Tabby
  • Age: Kitten
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 10412027
  • Hair: Short

Susan was born on April 2, 2016. She is the very last of her litter and is looking forward to when she can finally go home.  Susan was brought in to Fancy Cats with littermates as an orphan from a shelter.  She was bottle fed by her foster family and they love her very much.  She considers herself to be quite the hunter.  If you have a feather wand she will sneak up on it and catch it reminiscent of her wilder cat relatives.  She really loves to wrestle and play chase with the other kittens.  She has the softest fur and she is so very cuddly and squishy, like a rag doll.  She loves being held and petted and even when she feels like playing, if you scoop her up and scratch in just the right spot behind her ears, she will melt into you for some love.  She loves to be with you and will sleep with you at night. While it’s true that she has no biological littermates left, she would really prefer to be adopted with one of the friends she has made in her foster home—Marilyn, Reese, and Mango.  She gets along best with Marilyn or Reese.    Please note that it is Fancy Cats policy that kittens be adopted in pairs or have an age-appropriate playmate in the home already. We also do not adopt kittens to families with children under six years old without seeing appropriate history/experience with cats.

If you are interested in adopting, please fill out an application and a representative will get back to you shortly to answer any questions you may have. The application can be found at this link (copy-paste into a new window):

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.
