Cream and her sister Cookie (also available for adoption) have a pretty sad story. Their mother was allowed to give birth to 7 kittens in the dead of winter but was not allowed to come in the house, so had to care for them outside in a dog kennel! 2 did not survive but the remaining 5 did and are fine because they were fed and handled by a lot of kids. The people feeding them had to moved and could only take 2 of them with them and they found a home for 1. The remaining 2 (Cookie and Cream) were left behind were they were not wanted by the parents who owned the house. We took them in and had previously fixed all 5 plus Mom months earlier when we offered to take them in at that time but they did not want to give them up. So they have been spayed, vaccinated for FVRCP and rabies, flea and wormed and tested negative for feline leukemia and FIV. Super sweet and lovable and just want to be inside safe and warm and loved like they deserve to be!!
Castaway Cats is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit cat rescue based in Bear, DE, comprised entirely of volunteers. We do not have a shelter and all of our cats are in foster homes. This rescue was started in 1992 in an effort to help the homeless and feral cats in our area. Each cat we rescue is spayed/neutered, tested for Feline Leukemia and AIDS, vaccinated with FVCRP and rabies shots, de-wormed and de-fleaed. Because all our cats are spayed or neutered before adoption, we do not adopt out kittens under the age of 12 weeks.

Our Adoption Process...
If you are interested in meeting one of our cats, you can fill out our online adoption application at www.castawaycatsde.com. Once we receive your application we will contact you with any questions we may have, and then will set up a day and time for you to meet the cat/cats. Once a match is found for your family, there is an $85 adoption fee. This fee covers spaying/neutering of your cat, worming, all shots including rabies, ear mite and flea treatment, and Feline Leukemia and AIDS testing. All adoptions are done on a trial basis so we can be sure everyone is happy. Our goal is to find the best possible cat for you and to ensure our cats have happy forever homes.
