Barney: I’m a buff male tabby, 4 years old. I was found thin and very hungry with a wound at the end of my tail wandering in an apartment complex. I am friendly, came right up to a nice person who rescued me. I have all of my immunizations, am neutered and my tail wound is well healed. I gets along with my older cat roomates but wil “bug” a cat if I think I can get away with it. I eats mostly dry food with a small canned treat daily. I loves to lounge, especially in high places (like on top of my TV cupboard). I love to role over on my back with all 4 legs in the air (quite a picture). I get spurts of interest in a piece of dry cat food & bats it all over the kitchen floor. I’m also into colored pipe cleaners and fuzzy mice. I’m sweet natured, not aggressive. I may be timid in new situations. It didn’t take me too long to warm up to my current foster home though.
Please call CARE @ (804) 288-9797 for Kathryn’s bodacious boy.

Prior to adoption, every CARE cat/kitten has received a thorough exam from a veterinarian, has tested negative for FIV/Felv (except as otherwise noted), been spayed/neutered, dewormed, given flea preventative, and been inoculated against distemper. Rabies vaccine is given if the feline is over 4 months. Any other desirable medical attention has also been provided. Also, each cat/kitten has spent its rescued time in a private home in foster care being loved and assessed for temperament and personality, needs, likes and dislikes.
After your approval by our volunteers, a legal contract is signed with an adoption donation attached (this donation helps defray the medical costs incurred); and, you receive a free vet office visit at a participating vet within the first week.
Adoption Fee is a Donation.
