From Pearlie's foster mom:

Pearlie was adopted as a kitten by neighbors about 2 years ago (according to their landlord).  There were a teenaged boy, a grade school girl and a miniature dog in the home.  The landlord said they got the cat for the little girl.  They were evicted and moved out, leaving Pearlie behind without food or water and without notifying anybody, right before a hurricane hit the area.  Of course we took him in.  We don't know his original name or further details about his life.  He is a very clean, sweet, friendly, affectionate, well-behaved and appealing little guy who prefers to be indoors.  He was shy and wary at first, but quickly accepted us as his new people.  The landlord gave us Pearlie's cat tower and he sleeps on it, on our screened back porch, but would really like to stay indoors all day.  We would happily keep him, but unfortunately, he has no experience living with other cats and our two 7-year-old cats are extremely hostile to him.  Our two cats had a very delicate peace agreement before he came.  Pearlie eats what is left in their dishes and hides under the furniture to ambush them, and this infuriates them.  He wants to take over, not share with them.  We feed them all soft cat food on the vet's recommendation, with kibbles as a snack.  He likes this diet.  With humans, he is lovable and obedient.  A nice little pet.

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.
