'Lema' is short for 'Problema', because she seemed to be the kitten that caused her mother the most grief! Lema came to the rescue with her brothers, Fraidy and Waldo, her mother Sarabi, and two other kittens. Lema is about 2.5 years old and is currently being fostered in Dayton, OH. Lema is still shy with humans. She loves to play with other cats, and especially likes to snuggle with them. The video and first two pictures are from September 2013.
Lema would do best in a quiet household with other cats who are cat-friendly. She really does crave feline attention, while shying away from human attention.
Lema has been spayed, microchipped and vaccinated. Please email us for an adoption application if you are interested in adopting Lema. Lema's adoption fee is $80, which includes the cost of her spay surgery, a 24PetWatch microchip, FVRCP vaccine, rabies vaccine, Revolution for flea/tick/heartworm prevenion, her mother's FIV/FeLV test which was negative, and dewormer.
We at Little Love Bugs Rescue recognize that cats live longer, healthier lives if they are kept indoors. Therefore, anyone who adopts a cat or kitten from us will be asked to sign a contract stating that the cat will remain indoors for the duration of its life. We also believe that declawing a cat is a serious surgery that carries with it the possibility of many complications*. Therefore any adopter will also be required to sign a contract to never declaw their cat. *To remove the claw, the last bone of your the cat's claw has to be removed. It is a painful surgery, with a painful recovery period. In fact, declawing is illegal or considered extremely inhumane (and only performed under extreme circumstances) in over 20 countries, including England, Germany, Spain, and France. The cat is also deprived of its primary means of defense, leaving it prey to predators if it ever escapes to the outdoors. There are many alternatives to declawing a cat, including nail caps, training cats to use a scratching post, and other aversion methods.
