Facts about Elle

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: White
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 10524527
  • Hair: Short

Elle and her siblings, Mike, Lucas, and Dustin, arrived in the Baltimore shelter when they were a little over three months old. Their mother, Molly, was comfortable with people, but it quickly became apparent that these kittens were born stray, and unsocialized. For some cats, this means they may become difficult to socialize and always fearful of people. Mama Molly had taken great care of her litter, and their weights were very healthy. The whole family was treated for fleas and given their shots, and then handed over to Fancy Cats for socialization. Remarkably, Elle came around within days. She quickly learned to love snuggly cat beds, ear scratches, and even belly rubs. Elle likes to play and wrestle with her brothers, but what she likes most is to be treated like a princess! She loves a warm bed in the sunshine, scratching he sisal post, and rolling over for you to pet her cute belly. She has a cute gray patch on her forehead that distinguishes her, and she doesn't mind behind held one bit. 

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.
