Facts about Big Boy

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Black (All)
  • Age: Senior
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 10716829
  • Hair: Short

Aptly named Big Boy, is a pretty big boy but also a lover and snuggler.  He's the kind of cat that you can lay your head down on like a pillow, and it makes him so happy he purrs.  He loves to be petted and talked to, has a deep throaty purr, and when he's very happy he drools.  He came to us when his person developed Alzheimers and could no longer care for him.  He is between 7-10 years old so many shelters would consider his age as not adoptable, but Catvando thinks the older cats have a lot to offer.  The vet has said he is healthy and has some good years left in him, and we know he has a lot of love to give.  He is fine with other cats and dogs, has always been an indoor only cat and has no interest in the outside.  Give this solid, big boy a chance and you will be rewarded many times over.

About CatVando TNR Corp

About Our Rescue Group...

Our primary mission is to prevent kittens through a Trap Neuter Return (TNR) program. However, sometimes we get Trap Neuter Adoption (TNA’s). When shelters are full, we foster, socialize and vet the kittens. This part of our program also involves local youths in the care of kittens in addition to our TNR efforts.

While in our system, kittens are fed a good quality Grain-Free Kibble and care is taken to assure their long and healthy life to the extent possible. We supplement for specific issues i.e. Pro-biotics, EFA's, immune boosters and sometimes digestive enzymes.. Many are exposed to dogs and are comfortable with them. They’ve been exposed to many wonderful volunteers of all ages.

When possible we capture the mama with the litter to assure their fuller development. Many times we keep them together for 9-12 weeks. Our adoption fee covers spay neuter surgery, FVRCP & Rabies vaccinations, parasite, ear mite & flea treatment when necessary, and a micro chip. And some of them have a small ear tip—just a reminder that you’ve given a cat a home that could have otherwise had to fend for itself, on the streets.

Our adopted cats and kittens are welcome back for the duration of their life in the event the adoption doesn’t work out, or if it becomes impossible for you to keep the cat. We’re always available for consultation about behavior, health, or referrals to assistance beyond our scope.

Part of our adoption process requires observing all family members interaction, especially children.

We always adopt bonded pairs, but single cats are sometimes available. Adoption fees vary, but are usually $25 - $75 for a single cat, and $125 for a bonded pair.

Depending on the situation, we may also need to carry out a home visit, and help with transportation and introduction of the cat to it's new surroundings.

Follow-ups are part of the normal process.
