Meow! My name is Cookie
|Breed:||Domestic Shorthair||Color:||Brown Tabby||Age:||Adult|
I am already spayed, housetrained, and up to date with shots.
Cookie is a beautiful brown tabby DSH female that was born approximately 9/1/10. She and her five kittens Ginger Snap, Lorna Doone, Nabisco, Newton and Teddy Graham were rescued from a local animal shelter when they were scheduled to be put to sleep because the shelter was unable to hold her and her kittens until they were old enough to be adopted.
Cookie has raised her kittens and they have all found loving homes. She is now looking for her forever home so she can have the attention and love that she needs and deserves. Cookie is often overlooked at the adoption center as she sits with her nose to the corner of the cage and might hiss if someone comes near the cage. This is not because she is mean, it is because she is so afraid of all the noises, smells and strange people. In her foster home where she is comfortable and feels safe she is a great kitty. After a few days of getting to know her foster mom she was sleeping in her lap. Cookie loves to play with toys either by herself or with her foster mom. She loves to bat around toy mice or retrieve them from the kitty condo when her foster mom throws them inside. She also loves to play with a long piece of material on a fishing pole. Her foster mom swings it out and Cookie chases it and then chews on it. Cookie is hoping to be adopted by someone who will be patient with her as she learns to trust them, and realize that they are not going to hurt her. Once she is able to trust that special person she will be a lifelong devoted companion.
Cookie is in a foster home and her adoption fee is $95.

Rescue Group Info...
New Beginnings Cat Rescue (NBCR) is a 501(c)3 non-profit group. Founded in 2005, NBCR is an all volunteer, no-kill cat rescue dedicated to rescuing cats from euthanasia at Local city shelters. We are foster based and are the "in-store" cat rescue for PetSmart, located at George Bush Freeway and North Garland Avenue in Garland, Texas.
NBCR is dedicated to alleviating the crisis and tragedy of unwanted and abandoned cats, with an emphasis on addressing cat overpopulation issues and educating the public about the importance of spaying and neutering.
With respect and compassion for all cats, New Beginnings Cat Rescue promotes lifelong relationships between people and animals, providing foster care for each precious life until adopted into a good home. We strive to work with animal control and other rescue groups to save homeless cats in our community.
We have cats for adoption at our center in the PetSmart at Hwy 190 and N. Garland Avenue in Garland, Texas. You can visit them during our scheduled adoption events every Saturday from 11-4 pm and Sunday from 12-4 pm. Come see us!
Our focus is to place animals in loving, permanent homes where they will be cared for responsibly. Potential adopters or fosters are screened, up to and including home visits. We reserve the right to refuse placement of an animal for any reason. We thank you for understanding.
Adopters must be 21 years or older and willing to invest the time and money required to care for a pet. In addition to providing love and attention, regular medical care is required. Please ask if you would like more information about veterinary fees and costs.
Our animals come from a variety of situations. Some have been dumped at shelters or vets, and many are ill or malnourished when rescued. Although the animal has been in a protected environment, there is the possibility of unrecognized illness appearing after an adoption is finalized, especially because of the stress the animal may experience during the first few days at its new home. We advise adopters of the animal's known history and provide its veterinary records, but frequently we know only what the animal chooses to tell us. We cannot make any guarantee regarding the long-term health of any animal. Adoption fees are generally not refundable unless prior arrangements are made.
If you feel that you are ready to adopt, please e-mail email@example.com for prompt attention. A NBCR adoption counselor will contact you to arrange an interview.
