Meow! My name is Alani
|Breed:||Domestic Shorthair||Color:||Black (All)||Age:||Adult|
I am already spayed and up to date with shots.
Alani says, "Who, me? Dart out every open door as if my life depended on it? You have me confused with someone else." We rescued Alani back in the summer from a life on the streets. ( Read below for more about Alani's story) Most cats are happy to be brought inside where they have creature comforts. Not our girl Alani. Since she has an insatiable need to be one with nature, we would like to find her an indoor/outdoor home. A nice home where she is kept inside at night and when she likes, but also allowed outdoors under supervision. We also would ask that she always wear a collar with ID and get a microchip. Our goal is to place cats in homes where they will be happiest, not to blindly enforce an "indoor only" rule. Alani is incredibly spunky and full of life. She likes other cats and will make a purrfect companion! Please contact us if you could provide a good home for Alani!
Alani followed me for several days in a row while I delivered mail on her street. I noticed she always hung around the same house. When I asked if it was their cat, the woman said it was her son's cat and he had been looking to "get rid of it". She was born in their yard and they took her in as a small kitten and even bottle fed her. But once the cuteness wore off they banished her to the outdoors. I noticed there was a food bowl on the porch but it was always empty. I told her I'd be back after work to get her, and there she was waiting on the front steps. I didn't have a carrier with me so she was loose in my car. As soon as we drove away I heard ravenous crunching in the backseat. She found the bag of cat food I carry. It sounded like her first meal in days if not weeks. Now she is waiting for someone to adopt her.
All of our kittens are spayed or neutered, tested for FeLV/FIV, vaccinated against Distemper, and treated for fleas and other parasites.

Rescue Group Info...
Our mission is to improve the lives of feral cats through education and action, following the humane methods of Trap-Neuter-Return, and thus treating every feral cat with the compassion and respect they deserve.
The Humane Answer: Trap-Neuter-Return
If you've ever seen cats in an alleyway eating out of dumpsters, or blending into the wild habitat of a wooded area, and wondered about their condition and how you could help them, read on...
Some of them, having been lost or abandoned, have found their way to a colony where they can survive amongst other felines. But the majority live out their lives as feral, or "wild", cats. Being either born in the wild and never having had human contact, or reverting to a wild state after having been abandoned; the great majority of feral cats cannot be tamed. Generally, attempts at taming or adoption of ferals prove to be fruitless. Our efforts can be realized one-hundred-fold if we do the greatest good for the greatest number of ferals by stopping the cycle of reproduction.
Communities can help these forgotten cats by providing them with food, water, shelter, and spaying/neutering services through the "Trap-Neuter-Return" full management program.
Briefly, TNR consists of the humane trapping, sterilization, and return of feral cats to their familiar habitat to be cared for daily by dedicated volunteers. Kittens under eight weeks and/or tame cats are placed into adoption programs.
For more in-depth information on TNR, please visit our links page to visit the Alley Cat Allies web site or the Feral Friends web site.
We will be having an adoption event at Brooknelle Pet Resort, 4600 Knapp NE. Every third Saturday of the month from 10am - 2:00 pm.
For every kitten that is adopted another kitten will have a chance at a healthy happy life. Kitten season has been especially busy this year and we have been at capacity for some time now. Sadly this means people who want to help the cats and kittens in their area are being turned away because of limited resources.
The adoption fee for cats $85.00 or two for $125.00. They come spayed/neutered, tested for FIV and FeLV, wormed, treated for fleas and is up to date on his/her vaccines.
