Facts about Lema

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Black & White Or Tuxedo
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 4708425
  • Hair: Short

'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.

About Little Love Bugs Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Little Love Bugs Rescue was founded by a group of friends with a commitment to saving the lives of animals within Northeastern Ohio. Little Love Bugs Rescue is a private, non-profit, animal rescue. We are currently in the process of filing for our 501c3 tax-exempt status. Little Love Bugs Rescue is run out of the homes of volunteers. We do not have a shelter. All of our rescued animals are in foster homes being loved, nurtured, and evaluated by volunteers. If you would like to visit any of our adoptable dogs or cats, please email us and we can set up a time to meet after your adoption application has been approved.

Our Adoption Process...

If you are interested in adopting one of our rescued pets, please email us at All potential adopters must fill out an adoption application. Once your application is completed, please be patient. The application is processed by one of our volunteers who will email you back within a day to confirm that we received your application. The volunteer will then check with your veterinarian to make sure that all of your pets are/were up-to-date on their vaccines, spayed/neutered, and on heartworm prevention. The volunteer will call you to talk with you more about the pet that you are interested in adopting, and to make sure that you are a good fit. After everything checks out, we can set up a meet and greet with the dog or cat you are interested in adopting. Please only apply to adopt one of our rescued pets if you are willing and able to make a lifetime commitment to a pet. We give the highest quality of care to all of our fosters, and we have adoption requirements in place to make sure that all of our dogs and cats go to loving homes. We work very closely to match you with the right new family member. All dogs and cats are spayed/neutered prior to adoption. Adoption fees are non-refundable. We require that you are at least 21-years-old and that you live in Ohio, Pennsylvania, or Michigan to adopt one of our rescued pets. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
