Facts about Nero

  • Breed: Domestic Longhair
  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 11863616
  • Hair: Long

Nero is an adult, neutered male cat, probably born in 2014.  Whoever named him after an emperor was spot on the money.  Nero is a phenomenally regal and handsome cat.  He's a pretty big boy at 13+ pounds and his lush, long coat makes him look even bigger.  His eyes are like two polished gold coins and he WILL stare down the impudent slaves who tidy his box and fill up his water bowl.  Nero has an elegant sashay-walk and he always looks like he's strolling on a runway, even if he's just headed to the litter box.  He enjoys reclining on the windowsill, observing his outer domain and pondering the great mysteries of the universe.

For all his imperious looks, Nero is a beneficent dictator - he allows us to pet his silken fur and whisper his praises for as long as we want.  He will even reward us by playing with toys in front of us.  If you would like you life to be ruled by this emperor of cats, please see his personal secretary, Gail or one of his minions (we call them "volunteers").

About Cat's Cradle Shelter, Inc.

About Our Shelter...

Cat’s Cradle Shelter, Inc. is a non-profit, volunteer-run, no-kill shelter located in Fargo, ND. We opened on January 1, 2012. Our mission is to create a more humane and compassionate world, one cat at time. Cat’s Cradle is a colony-based shelter with 7 colony rooms and an isolation/medical room with seven private units (plus room for additional temporary units). We utilize foster homes for kittens less than 12-14 weeks old and for cats needing extra medical care or socialization/attention. Most of our residents are last-chance pound rescues. We typically have between 60 and 90 cats in care (it varies with need), and adopt 30-40 each month (hopefully more!). Cat’s Cradle is part of a new, multi-disciplinary effort with staff from three pounds, animal control officers, veterinarians, and community supporters) to reduce the number of adoptable cats being killed in area pounds. We are proud to be an integral link since July 2012 to bringing the number of adoptable cats being euthanized in our community down to ZERO.

Open houses Tuesdays 4-7pm and Saturdays 10am-4pm. If these times don't work for you, please call us at 701-356-7877 and we will arrange a private visit. Please be aware that there is usually at least a 24 hour delay between filling out an application and bringing a cat home, as we need time to check references.

Our Adoption Process...

Cat's Cradle requires an application, site visit, and interview. If a prospective adopter rents their home, we will call the landlord to confirm that pets are allowed on the property. Our adoption counselors will work hard to find the best match for the both family and the shelter cat. Our 2012 adoption fee is $109. This includes: intake health exam & FEL/FIV screening; 3 doses of roundworm de-wormer (and other parasite screening/treatment when necessary); age-appropriate vaccinations (rabies and distemper, including booster shots for kittens); spay or neuter surgery; microchip; and any other medical treatment recommended by the attending or consulting veterinarian(s) (for injury, illness, infection, etc). We allow a three week trial period to make sure that the cat and his/her new family are a good match, and if things don't work out...we always want our cats back! We prefer to adopt in our own area because A) we insist on meeting prospective families and B) we will not risk shipping our cats. We reserve the right to decline to adopt any cat into a situation that we feel will not meet his/her needs.
