Important Note

Born ~2012, Female, Flame Point Himalayan
Must be adopted with Susie, bonded

Sassy and Susie came from a shelter. They were taken there, the shelter thought, by a breeder they knew of. They were matted and in bad shape. The shelter shaved them and asked us to take them in. They were tiny – 5 pounds each; Miniatures. When they were spayed, it was found that their uteruses were covered with many scars from many cesarean sections. They were such tiny kitties that when they were bred for babies, they were too small to birth them so their kittens were surgically removed. At least, we think that is what happened. That was a “new idea” to me and a horrible existence for the poor assembly-line moms.

We’ve had them a number of months as they have recovered. Nursing litters of kittens one after another depletes the mama of nutrients for her own health. Susie has gone from a little thin thing of 5 pounds to a big girl of 9+ pounds, yes, she could lose a pound now. She also has a big double coat so her fur makes her look rounder than she really is. Sassy has gone from a thin 5 pounds to 7 and a half pounds. She has a “harder” coat with less of the cottony undercoat that Susie has. She therefore has to do less work to keep herself groomed and is less likely to matt. They both need their faces washed each day. Their great huge blue eyes need to be cleaned where their tears stain the fur. They call great, round eyes like theirs “headlight eyes” for obvious reasons.

These two are very good-natured about being fussed with. Susie especially likes brushing which is extra fortunate. Something in their history causes them to be scared if they are put on their backs. I can comb their tummies while they lie on their sides.

Right from the start, they were very loving . And they were irresistible, drawing everyone to ooou and ahhh over them.. What wonderful, tiny cuties they are. They love attention and play, feathers and cuddles. They do not particularly like to be picked up off their four feet. They do not like the camera, though it is almost impossible not to take good photos of Susie. Sassy scowls into the camera and looks cranky which she is not. She is playful and inquisitive and adventurous. Susie is more placid--comfortable in just being a great, loved beauty. They are a perfect pair.

These sisters are friendly to other cats though I think they feel each other’s company is quite enough for them. They are very bonded and peaceful with each other. Whoever is lucky enough to take them home will have an extraordinary pair. I have no idea how they would do with dogs. Respectful middle school and older children would be fine, also. I think they had a rough beginning in life and now it is time for them to be totally loved and pampered and safe.

These girls must go together as they are very bonded. They eat wet and dry food and are litterbox perfect.

About Purebreds Plus Cat Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Purebreds Plus Cat Rescue is dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, and rehoming of purebred and other exceptional cats.

Our mission is to educate pet owners, breeders, and shelters about our breeds, and to place our cats with Forever Families who will give them the proper care and love they deserve. We carefully match cats with their Forever Families by evaluating each cat's personality, temperament, and special needs. Then we determine the best fit for both the cat and the new family. Please note that we do NOT ship cats.

Our adoption fee is $175 unless otherwise noted. This fee allows us to provide excellent vet care for the cats that really need it. The healthy kitties make it possible for the sick ones to be saved.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our cats are neutered or spayed, vaccinated and FELV/FIV negative. We are not a shelter. All of our cats are fostered in private homes. We ask that anyone wanting to meet one of our cats first fill out our online application. These cats are treated like members of our family, and we want to ensure that you will do the same.

When you adopt from Purebreds Plus Cat Rescue, you are saving TWO lives - the cat you adopt and the cat who gets to take its place in Rescue!

Our Adoption Process...

First, call the name of the foster mother if you are interested in an individual cat. Once you've chatted, she will ask you to fill out our easy online application. Just "Click to submit"! Next, one of our wonderful volunteers will quickly contact your veterinary and personal references. Then they will give you a call to chat and answer any questions or concerns you may have about the adoption process. Once approved we will help you set up a time to come and meet the kitty or kitties you want. If it's a good match all around you will be asked to sign a contract and pay the adoption fee and you can take the kitty home that very day.

Our adoption fee is $175. That includes the kitty, spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccines, tested for FIV/FELV.

We do not ship pets, however, you are welcome to put in an application and once approved make plans to come out and meet the kitty and fly it back with you.
