Bess gets her name because she was an escape artist when first brought in from a Trap/Neuter/Return site, and Bess is the name of Houdini's wife! She wouldn't stay in her crate until she could be tested to make sure she didn't have a disease. But now she is happy, sweet and loving. 

Bess does love to play with her foster siblings. Saffron is the same age, and they have been together since they were really little. Where Saffron is outgoing, Bess is laid back. She still can give as good as she gets when they play, however! Bess also loves to hang out and play with foster sisters Anise (Neesi) and Carob. The four girls are quite close. You can see them playing in the following videos:    At the beginning, Carob is playing with Saffron. Then you will see their older foster brother, Sundance watching them. Anise (Neesi) and Bess like the birdcage as they go by it. Then they run (you will hear Neesi).   Bess has a poofy tail in this one--she was very involved in playing! Then she will run down the hall with Neesi.    At the beginning, you will see Saffron run up stairs and into the living room, then back out as Carob runs in. Neesi will come from behind a chair and you can hear her trill. Bess then follows Neesi out and stands looking around.

It is quite possible that Bess will be a lap cat when she is older. When she is not playing, she loves to be held and will purr to let her foster mom know. However, she IS a kitten and playing is first on her mind. Because she feels comfortable with her foster siblings, she could be adopted with one of them or a home with a buddy for her to play with would be considered.  She would not be a good "only" cat.

About Purr-Fect Match Animal Rescue, Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

Mission statement:
Purr-Fect Match Animal Rescue is dedicated to the sanctity of all living things and their inherent right to a happy, healthy, and humane life.

It is our mission to 1) help people keep their pets through guidance, non-monetary support, and education, 2) provide a service to find the perfect home for homeless, transient, and transitional domestic animals, and 3) provide a limited foster home structure for abandoned domestic animals.

Our Adoption Process...

A potential adopter must complete an application. It will be sent to the Board of Directors for approval. Upon approval, a home visit is done (either with or without the animal(s)). If all goes well, the animal will stay at the home. There is a two-week probationary period where either the adoptive parents or the foster parents can determine the animal should not stay. If this happens during the two weeks, adoption fees are returned. At the time of the adoption, a contract is signed. The adopter is given a full medical history, microchip information, etc. If applicable, a microchip transfer fee will be attained. The adoption fee for a kitten is $75. Any additional kitten is $25. A cat (1 - 6 years) is $40. Additional cat (1 - 6 years) is $20. Senior cats (7 and above) are $20. Puppies (up to 1 year) are $250. Dogs (1 - 6 years) are $150. Senior dogs (7 and above) are $100. Tax of 5% will be added to all adoptions within the state of Wisconsin.
