Meow! My name is Nibby
|Breed:||Domestic Shorthair||Color:||Black & White Or Tuxedo||Age:||Adult|
I am already spayed, a special needs pet, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, and declawed.
Nibby is a sweet girl with a sad story. Her approximate date of birth is January 2007. She is front declawed and very scared. She belonged to an elderly person who passed away. She and her owner were the only two in the household, no other people or pets. After her owner passed away, she was left alone at the home. Family members came back to feed her but after a short while, they took her to her vet and never came back to get her. The vet contacted us and asked us to find her a new home. She had already been spayed and front declawed. We got her updated on her vaccinations and microchipped. She has been pretty grumpy growly and very stressed. She is afraid of the other cats at her foster home so she has gone to another foster home where she has become accostomed to being with 2 other cats that don't bother her. We have not tried her with dogs because we don't want to further traumatize her. She was adopted in February 2011, but returned 6 weeks later. She was in a home with an elderly woman and doing well but when Nibby settled in and decided she was queen bee, she bit the lady when she startled her. We are hoping that we will be able to find the perfect new home for her--a single, settled person or possibly a couple that has a very quiet household, with either no other pets or perhaps only one or two other pets who are very docile and who doesn't have a lot of things going on all the time. And one who is willing to be firm with Nibby and not let her take over! When she is held, she relaxes and settles in. She really does love attention...she is just too scared to show it at first. Because she does bite, we recommend no children. Could you be the right one to give her another chance? We hope so!

Rescue Group Info...
Action for Animals, Inc. is an all volunteer, non profit organization that was incorporated in 1980. We assist the stray cats and dogs of Delaware County, Indiana. We provide medical treatment, spaying and neutering, foster care and ultimately, placement in forever homes for these strays. We also micro chip all of our adoptees prior to adoption. We want to help keep all of them safe! We have chosen the stray population to concentrate our efforts because they have no one to help them find a new home--they have been left to fend for themselves and we need to help them.
We are always in need of donations to support our programs. Any monetary donations are completely tax deductible and even just a few dollars helps us a lot! We receive no city, county, state or federal monies to support our programs. In addition to our adoption program, we maintain a feral cat alteration program and a spay/neuter assistance program for anyone who needs help having their own pet altered.
We always have cats and kittens showcased at the Muncie PetSmart. You can go there during any of the stores' regular hours to meet your potential new pet. If you don't see one there or on this site that interests you, please contact us. There are likely others in our program that we have not gotten posted yet. Please, no phone calls after 10pm.
We do have an application that needs to be filled out and processed. If you have other pets, your vet will be contacted to verify that your pets are kept up to date on vaccinations and are well taken care of. If you rent your home or apartment, your landlord will be contacted to verify that you are allowed to have indoor pets. We also ask for, and contact, two personal references. We ask for a minimum donation of $65.
The city of Muncie and other surrounding towns and cities in Delaware County, Indiana for the animals that we accept into our program.
We are more than happy to adopt our pets to anyone, regardless of where they live and can help arrange meeting places if the adopter lives outside of the local area. However, in most cases, we would not ship or fly our pets to a new home.
