Facts about Marbles

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Black & White Or Tuxedo
  • Age: Kitten
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
Found lodged in the wheel well of a mini van! I cant say if the vehicle had driven with him inside, but he has burnt whiskers and a burnt paw pad. This little boy was so terrified when we found him that his eyes were like marbles, big round spheres of fear. We named him Marbles and started teaching him kindness. He was just four weeks old when we found him. He went through a period of illness before we were able to get him back to feeling good! He has come around so very well! He enjoys getting his little rump scratched and he is so playful! His tiny buddy Phil was recently adopted, and I think Marbles is hoping he is next. He is a shy little boy, and we think its is from the terror he may have been exposed to in the tire well. He is a very thoughtful kitty, and smart as a whip. He is quite well behaved and uses the litter box EVERY time! He has such a silky sleek coat. And is not one of those kitties that sheds fur a lot. He is going to be a fairly big kitty, we think. He has long leg bones and has an oriental look to him, with big bat-like ears. He may be shy when you meet him, but he is sure to become a beloved companion if you give him a chance to be your friend.
He would not be a good kitten for hyper children, but he is very good with my 15 year old daughter. He gets along very well with all of our other foster kitties, and plays with adults and kittens, alike. We have a very sweet medium sized dog that loves kitties, and Marbles enjoys getting flea-bites from him on occasion. A funny thing Marbles does is that he gets so excited when its time for soft food... he runs back and forth quickly until the food is on the plate. He isnt frantic, just really excited and cant hold still. Its hilarious! We foster many cats here, and we know his personality will blossom once he is getting more one-on-one time. He is a handsome little man in his tuxedo! Just wait till you meet him! He is about 12 weeks old now (August 18), and has his appointment for neuter scheduled for September 30th. Please give us a call if you might like to meet this little furbaby while he is still a baby!

About Quality of Life Rehab and Foster

About Our Rescue Group...

Quality of Life Rehab and foster is a grass roots effort to increase the quality of life for all animals. We are especially concerned for those susceptible to entering our shelter systems and those abandoned or injured by run-ins with man. We believe it is very important to remember that an animal's quality of life must be put before it's quantity of life.

We also try to indirectly improve the quality of animals' lives by providing community outreach through education, foster, resourcing, and hands on rescue. Our rescue effort is run from our humble home. We are often unable to accept new animals simply because we are at capacity.However, that doesn't mean we won't help you find a home for your rescued animal or pet. We are happy to assist anyone willing to foster their own animal with adoption coordination and pet publicity.

We will pick up injured or orphaned wildlife and care for it until it can be taken to licensed wildlife rehabilitators, Animis Foundation, Ocala, FL.. We gladly perform snake (and reptile) removal, we LOVE reptiles and theyare NEVER harmed. Any indigenous animals we remove are relocated to an area that suits them.

We will also help with the TNR (sterilization) of feral cat populations in limited capacity . This is made possible by of Sheltering Hands, Ocala, FL..

Come Meet Our Pets...

The few foster animals we have at our home are readily available for meet and greets to meet your schedule! Some of our available pets may be fostered in their rescuer/owner's home. These people are the magic behind what we do. They have agreed not to take their animal to the shelter, and wait for someone to find the animal on this adoption site!

We are not a shelter. We are a home-based rescue and outreach. We foster a small number of various species at our home. We do our best not to take on so many as to affect the quality of life of those we care for (or our permanent residents/pets).

We happily offer to create adoption profiles for fostered pets, and ask any one who has a pet in need of placement give us time to find them suitable housing. We cannot help your pet if you have waited until the final hour to find it a home. We need time (where you "foster" your own pet) to search for a suitable forever home.

Our Adoption Process...

If you are interested in adopting one of our fur-babies, just drop us an email or give us a call.
We can set up a meet and greet for you and see how it goes.
Typically, our adoption fees are as follows:
Cats: $50
Dogs: $75

***Adoption fees can vary on a case by case basis. Most commonly, special needs animals or purebred animals carry higher adoption fees. This is done in an effort to discourage those that may be "adopting on impulse".
