Tiny Christy's Info...

I am already spayed, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, and good with cats.

Tiny Christy's Story...
Christy can be seen by appointment almost any day. We don't think she will show well at Purr-Suasions, but Safe Haven for Animals has a rescue house with a separate room where you could meet her. She is gentle but often gets frightened if picked up. She loves my lap, but it usually has to be her idea.

Christy is a very sweet and beautiful little cat (6-7 #). She is 2-3 years old. Her coat is called "agouti" which is unusual in cats. Her individual hairs are striped silver and black like a wolf, German shepherd or husky's might be. Her coat is thick and very soft. She has dainty white toes, a bib and black spots (eyes) on her legs. One ear is tipped as a sign she was spayed in a trap/neuter/return program.
She is beautiful and dainty and no one ever even asks to look at her! .
Christy is a little shy, but never aggressive. She likes to sit in your lap and be pet although doesn't want to be picked up or carried. She was evidently dumped and panhandled at a nearby architect's office where she played with one worker each day until they asked that she be "rescued."
She loves to clean all the Fancy Feast cans and plates, which is probably how she survived when dumped. She seems to believe her own dish of food just attracts bigger or pushier cats, so often leaves her dish for the cans! The longer she helps me with the feeding, the less spooky and more confident she behaves. She is beginning to drive other cats away from her chosen positions! .
I love this little cat and believe she will continue to blossom in a quiet or calm environment ... with gentle, older children and other quiet animals, too. She used to hide close to the floor, but now moves through the whole house and works the kitchen during feedings. She gets along with other cats but doesn't have a regular friend.
Christy is an advertisement for Trader Joe's Greek-Style Yogurt. She shows up instantly when she hears the lid being opened.
While I'm cleaning cat dishes throughout the other chores, Christy sits on the front of the sink while the water is running and I'm reaching over and around her cleaning the dishes and rinsing the cans for recycling.
Does she tug at your heart strings? Could you make her part of your forever family?
It is SOS Kitty policy with adult cats to offer a complete refund for a month if adopter is not satisfied... and take the cat back, of course. She is being fostered for Safe Haven for Animals, but I will honor that policy.

About SOS Kitty

About Our Rescue Group...

I'm a retired Agricultural Engineer. I operated the rescue house for Safe Haven for Animals for three years 24/7 (40-80 cats & kittens, all wet food and medicines). There were animals that Safe Haven was not able to rescue that I began taking, so finally have chosen to focus on those in my own home and assist in placement of older cats in Safe Haven for Animals' rescue house.

I still do some workshop facilitation and small consulting jobs. I do cat rescue because I love animals, have an incredible mentor (apprenticed to vet before starting to rescue cats) and because there is huge need, especially in our current economy here in Arizona.

Come Meet Our Pets...

By appointment. Working on adoption events.

Purr-Suasions in Old Town Scottsdale has offered us a place to show cats and kittens. They are open 7 days a week, usually 10 am to 5 pm.

Two foster homes in north Scottsdale have offered to show SOS Kitty cats and kittens for potential adoption by appointment.

Our Adoption Process...

Simple contract. Fee is donation, usually between $50 and $100 depending on animal. Special animals will have higher or lower adoption fees or arrangements.
We accept other donations, but are not a 501c3. Our veterinary costs at this time average $110/female and $92/male kitten. Food and litter avarage $1000/month+.
Cats we adopt from our home or the Safe Haven house have been tested for FeLV/FIV, inoculated against upper respiratory diseases and have been spayed or neutered.
We do not adopt out unaltered animals.
As of July 2012, we cannot take in any more cats until a significant number have been rehomed. We do not euthanize unless the health of the animal demands, so must make room with adoptions.
We adopt to indoor-only situations.
We seek homes where they don't declaw, but may be placing a declawed cat and, occasionally, might declaw to achieve a good home.
We work with a veterinarian to place rescued animals turned in to their clinic that are considered adoptable. We help in their recovery as needed first.
We work to find homes for passed over cats in the rescue house operated by Safe Haven for Animals, Inc.
Usually, the cats/kittens are in our home, private homes (SOS Kitty fosters) or in the Safe Haven rescue house. A few are on the local animal rescue network or in other private homes.
We may take the cat/kitten to the potential adopter's home for evaluation, We have foster locations where can show cats/kittens by appointment and we show cats at Purr-Suasions in Old Town Scottsdale and various pet stores on specific weekends.
We will take back any adult cat within 30 days if the placement does not appear to be satisfactory and refund the rehoming fee.
