Sweet Marie
DOB: October 30, 2015

Sweet Marie is a stunning, young lady who thrives on lashing you with attention. She, along with her sister, were abandoned on a farm along with their litters, a total of 5 kittens. Sadly one mom was unable to be caught so Sweet Marie became a surrogate to her sister's kittens and raised all 5 all on her own here at ELM. They had a rough start in life battling eye infections and upper respiratory infections, however we are finally confident we are out of the woods and mama is ready for her new home where she may live the rest of her life as a pet, and not as someone that is disposable or unwanted. Sweet Marie has always put her babies first. Always allowing them to eat first and by taking care of them so efficiently. It's now her time to come first to feel the love of someone that will truly love and appreciate her. She LOVES to be held and lavish you with attention. She will go out of her way to crawl up into your arms to signal to you that it's time for some affection. Sweet Marie is what we call a "Smoked Tabby" which essentially means that even though she is a black cat, she has a light grey undercoat where Tabby markings are indeed seen. Her coat is truly remarkable.

Please visit us online at or please fill out our brief, online questionnaire if you think Sweet Marie would be your purrfect match:

Sweet Marie's adoption fee of $225 includes UTD vaccinations including FeLV, deworming, spay, microchip, Revolution, and treatment for routine parasites such as fleas and ear mites. Our token adoption fee(s) help to offset just a fraction of our rescue's care and medical needs.

Thank you for considering adopting from ELM Cat Rescue!
