Facts about Reese

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Tortoiseshell
  • Age: Kitten
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 10412033
  • Hair: Short

Reese was surrendered to Fancy Cats from a family that had found her in their wood pile.  She was quite feral and they did not have the time to work with her.  She came to a foster home with kids, a dog, and kittens.  Originally, she was kept in a cage so that she could feel safe and comfortable.  That didn’t last long.  Within days she was allowing the foster mom to pet her while she was eating.  As she watched the other kittens play, she started playing with them through the bars.  Within a week she was fully assimilated into the family, both human and feline.  She is such a sweetie and has come to appreciate the finer things in life that a home can provide.  She loves, loves, loves to be petted and held.  She will purr from the moment you start petting until you leave the room.  She’s so happy to be with you that she keeps purring long after you have stopped petting.  She will sleep in the bed with you, purring the whole time.  It is important to remember that she used to be feral, thus she can be just a little hesitant when you first come into the room, or if you move to fast.  However, as soon as she realizes it’s you and that she’s safe, she completely calms down and comes for love.  While it’s true that she has no biological littermates, she would really prefer to be adopted with one of the friends she has made in her foster home—Marilyn, Susan, and Mango.  She absolutely LOVES Susan.  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.
