6 Year old Female Ruddy Abyssinian
It is difficult to think of saying goodbye to a cat like Zena. All Abyssinians crave a special relationship with their human companions, but Zena seems to invest even more of herself than others of her breed. We have learned that in her past life, Zena lived in a house where there was a lot of noise, a lot of arguing, and nobody to understand her or give her attention. One day the door was left open, and she escaped. fortunately, a good Samaritan and his wife took her in. they cared for her but could not keep her and ultimately surrendered her to a shelter.
Have you ever found yourself at the end of a relationship, feeling that you just didn’t have the energy to open your heart again, to explain again, to believe again? Well, when Zena arrived in rescue, she was bitter and angry and didn’t want to have anything to do with anyone. She was not ready to make herself vulnerable. She didn't even want to be touched. But her foster mom was patient, and over time—months—Zena was ready…to try.
If you have been lucky enough never to find yourself in Zena’s position, then maybe you won’t understand just how significant it is that now, when Zena’s foster mom gets into bed at night, Zena comes up and lies on her stomach, purring while her foster mom reads a book. Perhaps it won’t move you to know that when her foster mom asks, “Do you want a kiss?” she bows her head so her foster mom can kiss the top of it, and when her foster mom asks, “May I have a kiss?” and lowers her own forehead, Zena licks it.
This is a highly intelligent, sensitive cat. Whenever her foster mom wants to handle Zena, she tells her what she needs to do. “Zena, I want to pick you up,” or “Zena, I'm going brush your fur.” Zena is attentive. She seems to understand. And Zena loves drinking from the faucet also.
It is difficult to think of saying goodbye to a cat like Zena, but her foster mom has several other cats, and although Zena tolerates them, she would really be happiest with someone who was interested in a one-on-one relationship—or a two-on-one relationship between two people and a highly intelligent, serious, sensitive feline. Zena will come to her new home healthy, current on vaccinations, FELV/FIV negative, and micro-chipped. She is fostered in Pleasanton.
If you are ready for one extraordinary experience of bonding with an individual of another species, call Zena’s foster mom, Karen, at 707-301-6425 or by email at email@example.com
Rescue Group Info...
Purebreds Plus Cat Rescue is dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, and rehoming of purebred and other exceptional cats.
Our mission is to educate pet owners, breeders, and shelters about our breeds, and to place our cats with Forever Families who will give them the proper care and love they deserve. We carefully match cats with their Forever Families by evaluating each cat's personality, temperament, and special needs. Then we determine the best fit for both the cat and the new family. Please note that we do NOT ship cats.
Our adoption fee is $175 unless otherwise noted. This fee allows us to provide excellent vet care for the cats that really need it. The healthy kitties make it possible for the sick ones to be saved.
Our cats are neutered or spayed, vaccinated and FELV/FIV negative. We are not a shelter. All of our cats are fostered in private homes. We ask that anyone wanting to meet one of our cats first fill out our online application. These cats are treated like members of our family, and we want to ensure that you will do the same.
When you adopt from Purebreds Plus Cat Rescue, you are saving TWO lives - the cat you adopt and the cat who gets to take its place in Rescue!
READY TO ADOPT?
First, call the name of the foster mother if you are interested in an individual cat. Once you've chatted, she will ask you to fill out our easy online application. Just "Click to submit"! Next, one of our wonderful volunteers will quickly contact your veterinary and personal references. Then they will give you a call to chat and answer any questions or concerns you may have about the adoption process. Once approved we will help you set up a time to come and meet the kitty or kitties you want. If it's a good match all around you will be asked to sign a contract and pay the adoption fee and you can take the kitty home that very day.
Our adoption fee is $175. That includes the kitty, spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccines, tested for FIV/FELV.
We do not ship pets, however, you are welcome to put in an application and once approved make plans to come out and meet the kitty and fly it back with you.
