Facts about Sadie

  • Color: Black (All)
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 10564813
  • Hair: Short

From Sadie's foster dad:

Sadie’s original “mother” died of cancer.  I met the nurse who cared for the woman to get the cat. I couldn’t bring myself to take her to an overcrowded shelter and let her blend in with all the other black cats. So I thought I would try to get her into rescue.  It took me sitting in her room a little each day for almost two weeks before she would hang out for attention. But now she runs to greet me, purrs, and rubs against me the whole time I am in the room with her.  She doesn’t do well with cats or dogs.  So Sadie has been fostered in a room in my house that she has all to herself. I don’t think small kids are a good idea for her.  She wouldn’t be very tolerant of trying to be held or lots of commotion and impulsivity of small kids. But for older kids, I think she could adapt well and would love to seek out the affections they can give her.  She also prefers Meow Mix cat food.  Her owner wrote a note for the person who took her following her death and said it is her favorite.  I have tried to change it to a better quality food, but indeed she will not eat it. So, Meow Mix it is;) She also likes her scratching post, toys, and uses her litter box with no problems. Please help me find Sadie a place to call home.

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.
