Meow! My name is Big Earl & Little Merle
Big Earl & Little Merle's Info...
|Breed:||Domestic Shorthair||Color:||Orange Or Red Tabby||Age:||Young|
I am already neutered and up to date with shots.
Earl and Merle are our last two kittens of the season. We always try not bite off more than we can chew. We were never worried about finding a home for these two. Friendly, orange tabbies are easy to adopt out! Are you sensing a "but"? The "but" is that Earl is huge! He's like Baby Huey huge. Every day we see him he's gained another pound. Now when people come to see our two orange kittens, they see cute, little 5 & 1/2 month old Merle and his twin brother who is so big, he looks like he could be his father! 5 year old Marigold, who also shares the office with them is dwarfed by him! He has the biggest paws ever and it looks like he's going to grow into them and then some. We often feel guilty that the 3 kitties in the office aren't getting enough attention since we are so busy next door, cleaning, etc...that the easiest thing to do is plop down a couple of cans of food for them. They are super playful and kittenish, but Earl gets winded a bit sooner. A vet visited us recently and said, "He really needs to get out of here soon." He should have a more disciplined feeding schedule. So...we would love for these two brothers get a home together, but if not, we would just be happy to see them each end up with a happy ending.
More information about Feline Friends
Help this Shelter by making a donation.
Feline Friends should be your first choice in South Florida for quality cat adoptions. Visit our adoption center located on the border of Broward County and Palm Beach County in Deerfield Beach.
Feline Friends is a volunteer run, non-profit, 501c3 organization. Our purpose is to uphold and strengthen our portion of the "safety net." All of the cats in our adoption center are rescued. We strive to put an end to the needless killing of stray and feral cats in our area by facilitating sterilization, increasing education, and doing adoptions.
We assist the local feral cat population by educating the public about the trap-neuter-return solution advocated by Alley Cat Allies.
Finally, there are the adoptions. These are done seven days a week out of our adoption center. Our facility is everything a cat's home should be since, right now, we are their home. It is clean, tranquil, and fun. Adoptions are where we shine. We really know the individual personalities of each one of our kitties and can help you find your purrfect soul mate.
We are funded entirely by private donations and small grants. If you would like to help us continue our work, please remember us throughout the year with your 100% tax deductible donations. Also please include us in your trusts and bequests.
Call us to arrange for a visit. See what we are all about! Donatations of food, toys, bedding, carriers, and furniture are always welcome too!
Adoptions are done seven days a week out of our adoption center. Please call first since we are all just volunteers. You must be over the age of 25, and if you live in an apartment we need proof that you've paid your pet deposit.
All adopters are carefully screened, and there is a legal contract to be filled out. In most situations the adoption fee is $85 for adults and $125 for kittens. Each cat/kitten will have received at least one full set of vaccinations including boosters. They will have been wormed, treated for other parasites with either Advantage or Revolution, FIV/Leukemia tested, and been neutered.
100% of the adoption fee money is put right back into the daily operational expenses of running our adoption center. Thank you for your support!
