Facts about Fancy

  • Breed: Domestic Longhair
  • Color: White
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Long
Fancy is a five-year-old long-haired white female cat. When Fancy first came to us, we thought she was grey. Who knew under that dirty, matted fur lurked her original color?? She’s not named Fancy for nothing…she’s so beautiful she could be the Fancy Feast commercial cat! Fancy had a rough life in the outside world. She was thin and hungry when she arrived, with several cuts, abscesses and a laceration on her. Fancy was so thirsty she was drinking salt water from the bay!

She obviously was owned at one point, and no one knows her true story, how she came to be outside. Fancy unfortunately is in renal failure, and needs fluids at least twice a week, and we would be willing to train her new pet parent. When receiving fluids, most felines…object…from hissing and growling, to thinking your head would be a good perch…but not Fancy. She waits quietly while you scratch her under the chin, trusting to you to care for her and give her more time in this life. We would love to see Fancy in a loving home for her remaining time in this world, because despite a bad hand of cards this girl was dealt, she’s a beautiful cat and deserves better than a cage. Fancy asks for so little: she loves to be held, loves her cat bed, and her little breakfast and dinner bowl. If you have a place in your heart and your home for a time, we know Fancy would love to be in it!

About Our Shelter...

The mission of PAAWS RI is to provide services to Rhode Island’s most vulnerable populations of animals, through two specific programs.

The first part of our mission is to maintain a shelter/rescue program. Stray and abandoned animals have limited options for treatment through traditional veterinarians and shelters.

PAAWS RI will fill this gap with our shelter/rescue program and provide these homeless animals with shelter, medical care and rehabilitation. Once these animals are returned to
optimal health they will be adopted out to their forever home.

Many cats and dogs are suffering with easily treatable problems because affordable veterinary care is unavailable. We will fill that void with our program to provide funding for medical and surgical services. Recipients of these subsides will be animals belonging to low-income pet owners and shelter groups. Services include preventative and sick animal care, surgical and dental procedures, vaccinations and spay/neuter surgeries.
