Meow! My name is Monte
|Breed:||Domestic Shorthair||Color:||Orange Or Red (Mostly)||Age:||Young|
I am already neutered, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with cats.
Monte can be seen at Purr-Suasions in Old Town Scottsdale if requested. We will show cats and kittens almost any day requested.. 480-694-9998
Monte is handsome and friendly. He is a beautiy at 12-13 pounds. We believe he is about 2.5 years old.
His finder fell in love with him and went door to door searching for a home with no luck and there is no microchip or collar. His finder lives outside Arizona and has other cats, so had to leave Monte behind. He accepted a harness, but haven't had time to train him for leash.
This cat seems typical of an orange male ... laid back, friendly and looking for love. He is very busy in my house and very sweet. He was introduced to a family with young children one morning and was very responsive. He does not seem to care about the other cats and kittens in the rescue house as long as he gets at least his share of the food. (He and D'Arcy eat off the same plate!) He loves to play with grocery bags and lets kittens snuggle up to him.
This is a great companion for an individual or family ... He has lots of energy..
Rescue Group Info...
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.

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.
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.
