Mango was born sometime around May 21st, 2016.  She was found in a mango box in the trash room of an apartment complex.  The person who found her dropped her off at the local Petsmart, who then called Fancy Cats.  She was placed in a foster home and bottle fed from the time that she was nine days old.  Because she was so much younger than the other kittens and because she was a single kitten, she was quite spoiled in her early weeks.  She loved taking her bottle and absolutely required a belly rub when she was finished eating.  She had a small carrier that she was carried around in like a bassinet, going everywhere with the foster family… that is, when someone wasn’t holding her.  She was held a LOT.  She is now living right alongside the other kittens, learning how to be a cat, but she is also enjoying her time with the family and the family’s dog.  She loves this newfound version of roughhousing with the other kittens, and at times, can annoy them with how much she wants to play.  She still loves being held and petted and sleeping with her people though.  She has bonded with her foster sister Marilyn and they are looking for a home together.  They have completely fallen in love and spend all their time together.  Whether it’s sleeping or playing (or being bad and climbing on the counters), they are always together. 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.
