Facts about Lincoln 2

  • Breed: Domestic Longhair
  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 10431441
  • Hair: Long

Lincoln is an adult, neutered male cat, age unknown, but probably at least 3 years.  Lincoln came into the care of the shelter in December 2015 severely underweight at only 6 pounds and sporting very little hair. He was diagnosed with diabetes and went into foster care to work on getting healthy. Lincoln now has an amazing fluffy soft coat and weighs almost 14 pounds. His diabetes, though easy to care for, is one of the more challenging cases his foster parents have seen and he will require a dedicated family that either has experience with feline diabetes or a willingness to learn the steps necessary to keep Lincoln healthy. He currently gets his blood glucose tested at home (a simple ear poke), insulin shots twice a day, and eats a canned prescription diet that seems best at keeping his insulin dose small.


For the little bit of extra work put in to care for Lincoln, your rewards will be many. Lincoln is handsome and sweet and loves to play very much (with durable toys because Lincoln likes to eat things!). 


Lincoln is hot and cold with other cats, some he loves to play with, some he would rather not be around and tells them so. He doesn't appear to be a big fan of the foster kittens or the old cats in his foster home.  A playful cat his own age might be a good match or being only cat where he gets all the love, food, and toys would probably make Lincoln happiest.

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.
