Facts about Whiskas

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Brown Tabby
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 10728207
  • Hair: Short

Whiskas is an adult, spayed female cat, probably born in 2012.  She was rescued in Milnor and taken to the vet for an emergency surgery & spay (she had a uterine infection called pyometra). 

Whiskas was very lucky someone found her and got her to safety before she got any sicker.  She took a little while to get used to shelter routines, but now she's a big part of the calm energy of Room 3 - the best word to describe her is "serene."  Nothing disturbs her calm mood and we really enjoy her company.  She's a lovely cat with delicate features and we would be overjoyed to find her a family that would be patient with her and give her lots of time and love.

Update:  Whiskas was looking for new adventures and decided to go stay with our good friends at Natural Pet Center, 3037 13th Ave S, in their new adoption unit...she has a private apartment where she can oversee the staff, and a giant sunny playroom to enjoy by herself or with her friends.  Whiskas loves to meet new people, so please visit her at 3037 13th Ave S, Fargo.  The store is open M-F 9am-8pm, Sat 9am-6-m, and Sun noon-5pm.  Whiskas will be happy to advise you on the best cat toys and softest beds!

About Cat's Cradle Shelter, Inc.

About Our Shelter...

Cat’s Cradle Shelter, Inc. is a non-profit, volunteer-run, no-kill shelter located in Fargo, ND. We opened on January 1, 2012. Our mission is to create a more humane and compassionate world, one cat at time. Cat’s Cradle is a colony-based shelter with 7 colony rooms and an isolation/medical room with seven private units (plus room for additional temporary units). We utilize foster homes for kittens less than 8 or 10 weeks old and for cats needing extra medical care or socialization/attention. Most of our residents are last-chance pound rescues. We typically have between 60 and 90 cats in care (it varies with need), and adopt 30-40 each month (hopefully more!). Cat’s Cradle is part of new, multi-disciplinary effort (three cooperating rescues, staff from three pounds, animal control officers, veterinarians, and community supporters) to reduce the number of adoptable cats being killed in area pounds.

Come Meet Our Pets...

9 9th Street South, Fargo, ND
Open houses Tuesdays 4-7pm and Saturdays 10am-4pm. If these times don't work for you, please call us at 701-356-7877 and we will arrange a private visit. Please be aware that there is usually at least a 24 hour delay between filling out an application and bringing a cat home, as we need time to check references.

Our Adoption Process...

Cat's Cradle requires an application, site visit, and interview. If a prospective adopter rents their home, we will call the landlord to confirm that pets are allowed on the property. Our adoption counselors will work hard to find the best match for the both family and the shelter cat. Our 2012 adoption fee is $109. This includes: intake health exam & FEL/FIV screening; 3 doses of roundworm de-wormer (and other parasite screening/treatment when necessary); age-appropriate vaccinations (rabies and distemper, including booster shots for kittens); spay or neuter surgery; microchip; and any other medical treatment recommended by the attending or consulting veterinarian(s) (for injury, illness, infection, etc). We allow a three week trial period to make sure that the cat and his/her new family are a good match, and if things don't work out...we always want our cats back! We prefer to adopt in our own area because A) we insist on meeting prospective families and B) we will not risk shipping our cats. We reserve the right to decline to adopt any cat into a situation that we feel will not meet his/her needs.
