Meow! My name is Maya
|Breed:||Domestic Shorthair||Color:||Brown Tabby||Age:||Adult|
I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, not good with dogs, and not good with cats.
Upon first meeting Maya, she'll immediately start talking and wanting you to pet her..you could pet her for hours and she'll love every minute of it. She'll even urge you by reaching out with her paw to remind you. She's pretty small, 6lbs and 7 yrs old, but solid and in excellent health. She is a happy go lucky girl that's purring all the time. She doesn't like to be held but insists on being close by while you're sitting on the couch or lying in bed..She's a sun goddess in the winter months & you can always find her curled up wherever the sun is.She's not a jumper so counter tops & tables aren't a worry and a scratching pad/post helps keep her claws in check. Maya is great about using the cat box and very tidy.She's a grazer so having dry food accessible is important. She loves wet food too & jumps to attention whenever she hears the can being opened. Maya would be best suited in a home with children that would shower attention on her but where she is the only pet. She would be a great addition and provide a lot of love to the right home.

More information about Fancy Cats Rescue Team, Inc.
Rescue Group Info...
Fancy Cats Rescue Team was founded to provide the community a "safety net" for cats and kittens that are abused and abandoned, or added to the euthanasia list at the shelters that we are currently participating with. We are a 501 (c) (3) Nonprofit Organization and participate with the United Way/CFC #8929. The goal is to have no kill shelters in place. Education and responsible pet ownership are the foundation of our organization. Our program provides literature, counseling, referral services and educational resources to families and individuals needing guidance. Teaching people responsible pet guardianship by spay and neutering their pets, behavioral modification and health concerns. We also provide a mentoring environment for our youth volunteers where they can learn the rewards of community service while caring for animals that need their gentle, loving kindness. They also interact with the community providing self-confidence and the ability to interact with a variety of cultures and diverse backgrounds. Once an animal is received into our program, they remain with us until a safe, appropriate home is found. They are never euthanized based on their age or space limitations. They are given appropriate medical care, immunizations, spays or neuters and endless hours of tender, loving care. We are an all-volunteer organization with no paid staff. We are funded by community donations, 91% goes toward the care and well being of our animals. Our adoption fees help offset our veterinary bills.
Our adoptions are held at the Fair Lakes PETsMART in Fairfax Virginia, at the Chantilly PetsMART, at the Gainesville PetsMART, and at the Springfield PetsMART
Check our website for upcoming adoptions. www.fancycats.org
Our adopters fill out an application that screens for problems that may be detrimental to our cats and kittens. Once the adopter is approved we provide veterinary referrals which help with low cost spays or neuters for the kittens that are too young at the time of adoption. We are always available to help with behavioral issues that arise. We provide numerous information sheets in our adoption folders, plus the medical background of each cat. The only fees involved with our program are adoption fees that offset our veterinary bills.
