Additional Information: Summer's a very sweet and social kitty who really enjoys being petted and purrs a lot in return. When her foster parents enter her room in the morning, she always rubs against their legs and wants to be pet and loved on.
Summer has a very gentle, mellow personality and is very comfortable with adults of both sexes. She's also adjusting to living with two small children (8 and 4) at her foster home.She's patient with them, but when they overwhelm her with too much enthusiasm, she simply runs away and hides; she's never aggressive with them in any way.
Summer doesn't seem to be interested in toys, but she loves scratching the appropriate things; scratching posts, her food bowl placemat, and in her litter box. She doesn't care for cardboard scratchers. Fully litter box trained, she's never had an accident.
In short, if you are looking to give a well deserved break to an adorable, delightful young kitty who had a tough beginning, Summer is the companion animal for you! Please make an appointment to visit with her soon!

City Dogs Rescue is a foster based rescue in Washington, DC. We do not have a shelter. We focus on local adoptions in DC and the metro area of Maryland and Virginia. CDR has a thorough adoption process in order to find the best possible fit for each of our animals (we do not operate under a first-come, first-served model).
Our cat adoption fee is $150 unless noted. Prior to arrival, all of our cats are spayed/neutered (unless specified) and given shots for Rabies, FVRCP, and Feline leukemia. They are microchipped and tested for FIV and FeLV. They are dewormed at least twice and given a health check by the vet.
