Additional Information: Charlie is such a sweet boy, he just loves to get ear and face scratches, and he loves to be brushed and petted and is happiest on his human's lap or close by. It appears that Charlie has suffered some past abuse, as he flinches when someone is about to pet him, but he just loves human affection so much that he's willing to deal with any consequences. Poor Charlie had a rough life and he deserves a safe home to call his own. We think Charlie would do best in a quiet home, where he is the only cat, or there is a non-dominant cat is residence. He is also good with dogs and can coexist nicely with a calm and quiet dog. This sweetheart has the saddest eyes. Don't you want to make him happy and give him a forever home?
If you are interested in meeting a cat, we require an adoption application. Visit http://www.citydogsrescuedc.org/adopt-a-city-kitty.html to apply. If a cat has "HAS APPLICATION" listed, they are still available to receive additional applications but also may be in the process of being adopted soon.
City Dogs Rescue is a foster based rescue in Washington, DC. We do not have a shelter. We focus on local adoptions in DC and the metro area of Maryland and Virginia. CDR has a thorough adoption process in order to find the best possible fit for each of our animals (we do not operate under a first-come, first-served model).
Our cat adoption fee is $150 unless noted. Prior to arrival, all of our cats are spayed/neutered (unless specified) and given shots for Rabies, FVRCP, and Feline leukemia. They are microchipped and tested for FIV and FeLV. They are dewormed at least twice and given a health check by the vet.
