Facts about Aslan

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Orange Or Red (Mostly)
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 10927085
  • Hair: Short

Aslan is a BIG SWEETIE!  He is calm and gentle and very interested in people.  While he is not a lap cat (at least not yet) he loves to be right where you are and loves being petted.  He lets you know how happy you make him with his intense purr that he does often!  He was rescued from the cold streets of Baltimore, but has excellent indoor kitty behaviors. He uses his litterbox and scratching board often.  He likes to show off his incredible ability to shred the scratching board-- But don’t worry- he reserves that talent for  his scratching board exclusively! (such a good kitty).  When he is playing, or rolling over to be petted, or just sitting next to you, he is always the kindest kitty in the world.  Aslan is so super sweet. He greets his foster mom at the door to his room every day and eagerly waits for his food. He doesn't try to escape his kitty room- it’s as if he knows the rules of the house.  He is very relaxed cat.  He doesn’t seem to like to climb up high or jump.  If you forget to pet him while he is next to you he gives gentle head butts to encourage you, but he isn’t overly needy.  He’s a pretty mellow guy that would love to sit next to you while you binge watch your next Netflix show!  We aren’t sure how Aslan would get along with other pets, but he is great with older kids.  He didn’t seem bothered by the other cats in his foster family's house (their smell or sight), but he hasn’t had free roam of the house yet.  We think he would like a calm quiet house to take his cat naps in the sunniest or softest space in the house. Aslan would make the “Purr-fect” companion!

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.
