Meow! My name is Spotty
|Breed:||Domestic Shorthair||Color:||Gray, Blue Or Silver Tabby||Age:||Adult|
I am already spayed and up to date with shots.
This is the story of Spotty, a feline who came to our yard in early January 2012, possibly, like in so many instances, abandoned by her owners or "dumped" in the neighborhood. She is a tiny beautiful grey, black and white striped cat not older than one year. We were not sure whether the cat was a female or male; acted like a feral cat. We made a cardboard basket for her in the garage, left food and water, as well... hoping that she would use it. After a couple of weeks the food was gone. A couple of weeks later we found her in the cardboard box, lined with blankets. From then on she would regularly eat the food, drink the water and sleep in the basket in the morning and late at night. We slowly approached her. She would loudly meow but would not let us touch her. After a while we could touch her just for a moment before she would growl and try to scratch us. We noticed that she was "filling out" and we strongly felt that she was pregnant; then we knew it was a "she". She has the most beautiful eyes. With the help of Carrie Holler (who loaned us a trap), a rescuer and Animas, the SPCA voucher procedure we were able to trap her and take her over the wonderful SPCA clinic where she was spayed. Since we did not want to release her we kept her in a large case (we kept for recovering cats and dogs) in our guest room where she has recovered beautifully, giving me the time to domesticate her. Amazingly, she has become a very affectionate and loving feline; has learned to play and is doing so well. Unfortunately, we already have three other cats (all rescued and one abused) and we are submitting this story in the hope that we find a loving family who will continue to domesticate her. We are definitely willing to foster her until we find a loving home for her. She is a most loving and affectionate feline!\ Any questions, please call Conny or Mars Doeve at (916) 424-0625 WE WILL SUPPLY FOOD FOR ONE YEAR AND WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR SUPPORT

Rescue Group Info...
We are no-kill, all volunteer non-profit feline rescue organization. We work with members of the public.
We spay/neuter, vaccinate, test, and provide other needed medical care for our rescues. We then work to find new homes for abandoned, and homeless cats & kittens. Our goal is to eliminate the needless killing of pets in our shelters.
Since our incorporation in 1998, we have spayed/ neutered and rehomed over 2000 cats & kittens. Our credo is to stop the suffering of homeless and abused cats and kittens.
We do adoptions at the Petsmart in the Natomas Marketplace (just off I-80 on Truxel Road) in Sacramento. We are there Saturdays from 11am - 7pm and Sundays from 11am - 5pm every weekend.
We also have a number of adult cats who stay in the adoption center at Petsmart throughout the week. If anyone is interested in one of these cats, they can call 916-224-1117 and we'll make an appointment to meet them.
Our cats and kittens are all tested for FeLV (all) and FIV (8 months and older), spayed/neutered, and receive vaccinations appropriate for their age before adoption. Also, cats and kittens are de-fleaed and de-wormed Cats have a 10 day health warrenty and we have a life time return policy in case the adoption doesn't work out or circumstances change.
We try to match the cat to the home. Our Adoptors sign a waver with Petsmart and complete a contract with C.A.T.S. We ask an adoption fee of $90 on most of our cats. Some special needs cats are adopted for less.
