Sisters Flora and Merryweather arrived in foster care at about four weeks old. They, along with their sister Fauna, were tiny for their age and had no mother. After arriving in their foster home they got the best care, but Fauna was unable to rebound from her rough start and died. Flora and Merryweather, after a lot of effort, eventually turned around and began to catch up with average kittens of their age. Though still on the small side, these babies are now healthy, very fast and playful. They love to wrestle, chase, and run! Both girls were also bottle fed and, like most “bottle babies,” are extremely affectionate and people-oriented. Flora, in particular, loves to be held and talked to. She is quick to purr loudly when cuddled. Merryweather is a bit less patient with being held since there is so much still to explore in the world! These girls have been through so much together that they absolutely must be adopted as a pair. They are healthy, happy, sweet kitties and looking for a family with no small children. They do well with other cats (especially cats who don’t mind their tails being used as kitten toys) and have not been exposed to dogs. These precious kittens will be ready for a forever home at the end of June, but applications are being accepted now for their adoption.

Please note that it is Fancy Cats policy that kittens be adopted in pairs or have an age-appropriate playmate in the home already.  We also do not adopt kittens to families with children under six years old without seeing appropriate history/experience with cats.  

If you are interested in adopting, please fill out an application and a representative will get back to you shortly to answer any questions you may have. The application can be found at this link (copy-paste into a new window):

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.
