Selma's Story...
Hi there- I'm little SELMA! I am an adorable torti-shell (dark calico) short hair female kitten. I was rescued with my brothers and sisters and we are so thankful to Advocates 4 Animals Feline Rescue & Rehabilitation Inc for taking us in! (We are LUCKY!) We are happy, healthy, playful, love life and love all people and other cats! We are looking for homes to call our very own- I dream of a home that will be committed to me for the duration of my lifetime. We need to go to homes with no small children (no children under age 5)- as we are very small kittens. We will be just 10 weeks old as of 5/26/09.
I have tested negative for both FIV and Feline Leukemia, I am spayed, up to date on shots and have been treated for the prevention of ear mites, fleas and worms. I am housetrained/litterbox trained (indoor only cat).

I AM READY FOR ADOPTION AS OF 5/26/09- SO PLEASE CONTACT ADVOCATES 4 ANIMALS RIGHT AWAY TO COMPLETE AN ADOPTION APPLICATION IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ADOPTING ME- SELMA! I can't wait to meet you!


**BE SURE TO WATCH MY VIDEO**

-- If you're interested in adopting me, please contact Advocates 4 Animals right away or complete the online ADOPTION APPLICATION! I can't wait to meet you!

***Please note, cats are extremely routine oriented pets. It may take 2-6 weeks to fully adjust to a new home environment. Please remember to be patient when bringing a new feline into your home. ***

Please contact Advocates 4 Animals to begin the adoption process or complete the online ADOPTION APPLICATION! .
1. A phone or e-mail interview will be conducted
2. If approved, an Advocates 4 Animals member will contact you and schedule a 'meet & greet' with the adoptable pet
The 'meet & greet' will be held in your home.
3. At that time of the home visit, we will assess if the pet(s) is a good match for both the family/individual adopting the pet and the home environment.

Please note:
-All individuals living in the home must agree to adopt the pet into their home. All members of the home should be present during the 'meet & greet'-- including additional pets who live in the home.
If Advocates 4 Animals determines that the pet is not a good fit for the potential adopter, this will be discussed at the time of the home visit.
Every pet is different. Some pets have highly specialized needs (ie: type of environment, other pets, etc.) while others adjust easily to various environments. Felines typically take 2+ weeks to begin adjusting to their new home. All pets have been housed in foster homes while they wait to find a home to call their very own. All adoptable rescue pets are up to date on shots, treated for the prevention of ear mites, fleas and worms and have been spayed/neutered.
-Advocates 4 Animals requires an adoption donation fee of $75.00. The adoption donation assists us in rescuing and rehabilitating additional homeless pets. Our organization is run solely on donations and with volunteers. Without your support we could not continue our efforts!



Please note that adopting a pet is a commitment for the duration of the pets life (cats live an average of 14-20 years). Please be sure you and each of your family members are fully committed to the feline adoption. Like people, pets are not perfect - they require love, devotion, commitment, and above all patience. There may be times when issues may arise such as clawing on furniture, urinating outside of the litterbox (this occurs usually when there is a health problem such as a urinary infection), allergies, new additions to the family, moving to a new location or another issue that may be frustrating as a pet owner. Also, please note: If you have small children in the household, it is important to educate your children on how to properly treat and be kind to your new cat. Too many times, we have had families with small children adopt a cat, only to return it within a short time- because the cat nibbled on their fingers or the children played too rough with the cat. PLEASE CAREFULLY CONSIDER all aspects of cat ownership and how this change will impact and effect ALL current members in your household prior to moving forward with adoption. Cats are animals- and animals will nibble, claw, play, jump on furniture, meow and be full of energy at times. In adopting a pet, we accept the good with the bad and commit to working with the feline through the bad. Adjusting to multiple new environments is difficult and stressful on the feline, therefore we make every attempt to find a forever home for our adoptable pets. Please be certain that you have considered all aspects of owning and caring for a rescue pet for the duration of their life - through both good and bad.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Selma, a Xenia Domestic Shorthair kitten was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Domestic Shorthair for sale in Xenia, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair kitten from a breeder in Xenia.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Xenia already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Xenia breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Domestic Shorthair breeders who help with Domestic Shorthair rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Xenia paves the way for another one to be saved.
