|Breed:||Siamese||Color:||Brown Or Chocolate||Age:||Adult|
GEISHA is a gorgeous DLH Seal Point Siamese female, approximately 2 years of age. Found outside as a stray very thin and full of mats. Attempts were made to locate the owner, and once contact was made several months later, her previous owner could of cared less that her cat was found. So much for that lifetime committment she supposedly made when she originally adopted her from animal control. This striking kitty deserves a home where she is wanted and given the attention she deserves. Geisha is very sweet and outgoing and likes to be held, but it does take her a couple of weeks to adapt to a new environment where she feels comfortable enough to relax and 'let her hair down'. Would do well in a home with other cats and older children.
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.
