Hi, my name is Missy.  I am a kind, shy, gentle cat, but lost in my mixed family of four cats, and I am on the bottom rung. I started out here as a kitten with my sister Cheetah.  We were really cute together doing the silly things that kittens do.  When we moved to a bigger house, my humans brought a stray cat with them who had decided to adopt my humans.  She (Big Momma) was also pregnant and it was in the winter, so I understood.  After she had her kittens and spent time in the house, it was clear that she was the strongest one.  That was OK, she and I got along fine.  We slept together and cleaned each other.  Then came Kimba, the white Maine Coon devil.  He was young but got big, so he became #2.  He and Cheetah began to beat up on me, just to show me where my place was.  I got depressed and began to eat too much. My humans understand and believe I would be a great cat if  I could be in a quiet house, maybe with another cat that liked me.  Then I could show off my roll over trick, and show you how gentle I can be with my paw when I touch your arm, just to let you know I am there and could use a pet. I bet I would even lose some weight if I felt safe and comfortable all the time.  I have good scratching manners and love catnip as much as any other cat. I can sleep with you or I can sleep by myself.  I will let you know when it's time to eat, but I won’t be obnoxious about it.  I have a clean bill of health, and ready to show you what a great and pretty cat I really am.  I have a lovely blue-gray fur coat. I have a pretty head, and I like to purr when things are good. Hope to see you soon!

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.
