Facts about Emma Jean

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Tortoiseshell
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
Emma Jean is a rescued kitty who had a couple of bad years and has now had a couple of better years. She is about 4 years old now, healthy, playful and affectionate. As a youngster, she played outdoors, but when she became a teenager (in cat terms), she played with the boys and got pregnant. Her family turned her in to the law (Animal Control) and she had her babies in kitty jail the very next day.

A wonderful rescue group bailed the little family out and put them in foster care. They were cared for and loved, but when the kittens were big enough, all were vetted and the family was sent to the shelter for adoption. All the babies were adopted, of course, but Emma Jean was left behind in a group cat room and she did not like the situation. She wanted the attention of everyone who came in so she would spit and hiss at the other cats to keep them away and no one would adopt her. She became depressed and then had recurrent illnesses. To save her life, she was taken into another foster home, and after a few months she adapted and got well again. She can stay in that home forever, but there are still other cats and she would prefer to be an ONLY cat. She is loving to any person who comes to visit, as if saying PLEASE take me home with you, but they all have dogs or other cats so she stays here. It's not a bad life for her, she is loved and cared for, but she still hopes to be somebody's number one cat, to sleep in their bed and to have ALL the attention. She maintains perfect health by following a simple diet of low carbohydrate canned food, some roasted chicken, a few treats a day and no dry food. She also insists on fragrance-free dust-free clumping kitty litter (Dr. Elsey's ULTRA). She tolerates the other cats (there are no dogs here) but she would prefer to be the love of your life, the ONLY pet, and she doesn't want to share your affection. If you are someone in need of a great companion, contact us and we'll discuss having a trial period to see if you are made for each other. She is welcome here forever -- we just want to find an even better place for her to live out her life.

About Red Top Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Red Top Rescue was developed in 2004, when we relocated next door to Red Top Mountain State Park. Animals were frequently abandoned there, particularly cats and kittens, and several of us in the area banded together to help with rescue and placement. We have recently retired from active rescue and we are no longer taking in any animals. However, we still have some rescues from previous years who are in need of forever homes, and we may occasionally list animals fostered for other groups.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We apologize, but you can't come to us. All of our listed pets are in foster care. We do NOT have a shelter, and we do not take animals to adoption events unless we are fostering for one of the local Humane Societies. We will respond to online inquiries by email, arrange a telephone interview, and if it seems like there may be a good fit, we will bring the cat or kitten to your house for a no obligation "meet & greet" and see how it goes from there.

Our Adoption Process...

We have a standard adoption agreement to be signed.
Requirements are reasonable and will be discussed in the initial telephone interview.

There are no standard adoption fees, but donations are requested to cover the cost of our spay/neuter surgeries and vaccinations.
