|Breed:||Domestic Longhair||Color:||Orange Or Red Tabby||Age:||Adult|
FANTASIA is a sweet DLH orange tabby w/white approx 3 years of age. Originally came from Houston Animal Shelter when she was up for euthanasia. She has one eye that half opens and it appears she has a permanent wink. Vet says she had trauma in her left eye and left nostril or had a birth defect. One will never know. She is very outgoing and her antics will keep you entertained. She is lovable and does well with other cats and most likely children. Would do well with dogs once she got to know them. Came back into rescue when her idiot new owner promised a lifetime commitment, then dumped her at Animal Control citing "she has gingivitis and will need a dental and I can't afford it". Vet records show a mild case, but she, unlike lots of other cats have some form of gingivitis.
Rescue Group Info...
I have been involved in cat rescue most of my life. When I was a child I was always bringing strays home and it broke my heart when my parents would make me find a new home for them. It takes some people years to figure out their purpose in life and I discovered mine at an early age...cat rescue. I do it to try and make a difference in a cats life and to educate people on the importance of spay/neuter. I was with Friends of Pets for 10 years where I did cat rescue, foster and adoption as well as other volunteer duties. I left Friends of Pets in 2001 and co-founded the rescue group, Kitty and K-9 Connection. I was a director for 10 years, the past four as President, where I did everything there is to do in a non-profit animal organization which included rescue, foster and adoptions and that is what I am doing today.
Meet & Greets held at Anchorage PetZoo on Dimond & Old Seward every other Saturday from 2ish to 7:30ish pm. Check the website for current dates and future locations.
If you fine a cat you are interested in, an adoption application is done. Once reviewed and processed, a time is set up for potential adopters to meet the cat. If all works out then the adoption contract is done and a trial period begins to make sure everyone adjusts.There is an adoption fee of $120.00 for adult cats and $150.00 for kittens, and home visits may be required. The standard adoption fee of $120 gives you a cat that has been examined by a veterinarian, feline leukemia tested, spayed or neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. If a cat comes in with additional medical needs, ie, dental, broken limb, ear mites, worms. etc. those needs will be addressed and the cost of the adoption is still $120.
