Facts about Petco Babe

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Gray Or Blue (Mostly)
  • Age: Kitten
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 10668351
  • Hair: Short

Babe is a very lucky kitty.  She was brought to a local vet as an orphan, and was expected to be euthanized.  Instead, she found her way into a foster home for the shelter.  

Babe has functioning eyeballs that do not fill her eye sockets to capacity.  This caused problems with her eyelashes curling in and rubbing on her eyes.  Thanks to the generous donation of veterinarian time by State Street Animal Hospital, Babe underwent a surgical “facelift” to lift her eyelashes up and away from her tiny eyes to relieve and prevent future irritation. Although she is visually impaired, Babe can see quite well.  In combination with her other super-senses, she is just a normal everyday kitty.  She is cautious in trusting her depth perception but has no problems with stairs.  In bright light or darkness, she may still crash into walls or chair legs if running through the house at top speeds, but other than those obvious impediments, there is nothing to stop her from blending right in with your family. 

Babe is available at the Batavia Petco.

Babe gets along great with other cats and even well-behaved dogs.  She loves toys, especially ones that respond with some kind of noise.  She doesn’t know her own strength and is still learning self control.  She gets a tap on the nose and a “NO” as a reminder to play gently, and she learns very quickly.  She will continue to need these reminders as she grows, and until then we would not suggest a home with very small children.  

Babe is currently at her rambunctious pre-teen stage.  When grown, Babe will be a great lap cat.  She currently plays until she is exhausted then climbs up onto your chest to give you a whole slew of kisses and then settles in for a cuddle.  She loves a back scratch, all the way from her English bull terrier nose down to her 90 degree bent tail.  She loves sleeping in front of the wood-stove in her foster home... It's just so exhausting being a kitten you know.  Babe is a very loving and special kitty just waiting for her furever home.  Come and meet her today!



 
Here is the adoption process:
 
You must come to the Shelter to complete an application which is reviewed right away. If everything is okay you can meet any of the animals. All animals are $40, if they are not spay or neuter, there is a $35 refundable deposit that is returned upon proof of surgery. 
 
If Volunteers For Animals spayed or neutered the animal, we are suggesting adopters make a donation of $35 to help with the cost of the surgery which is significantly less than if you had to go to a vet. All of that donation will go directly towards spaying and neutering the next animal we take into the Shelter. You will be helping to 'Spay it Forward' and reduce the homeless pet population. 
 
We only accept cash or checks. Please bring a carrier for cats to go home in or you can purchase a nice cardboard carrier for $5 from us. If you live in Genesee County, all dogs must be licensed before they leave the Shelter which is done through your city/town clerk's office (typically M-F 9-5). Please bring a leash when you pick up your new friend. Our adoption hours are Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday 1-3; Wednesday 7-9 and Saturday 11-1. 
 
If the cat or kitten is at Petco, you can go in anytime during Petco's store hours to complete an application and see the cat or kitten. Once a day a volunteer stops into the store to review applications and will call you with questions or let you know the adoption is approved. You can return to the store anytime to pay the adoption fee and pick up the cat or kitten. The adoption fee is $40, cash or check, and the animal must leave in a carrier. 
 
Thank you for considering a homeless animal.
