Meow! My name is Pinball
|Breed:||Domestic Shorthair||Color:||Brown Tabby||Age:||Young|
I am already spayed, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Hi, my name is Pinball & I am Willie's sister!! I am one of 3 babies born from a stray tortoiseshell momma cat that showed up in my caregiver's backyard last November. This nice caregiver feeds us & has given us shelter. She even had the vet man give us surgeries & some shots. I am about 10 months old as of Aug. & I'm told I am a very loving girl (watch my video). My feline mommy went missing in April & when she returned she was limping. The vet man said that she had been shot!! So my caregiver is trying to find me a good "indoor only" home where I will be safe & well taken care of. I may be scared at first since I only know my caregiver & have only ever lived outside. But my caregiver thinks I will adjust quickly. I do well around other cats & "cat-friendly" dogs. I still need to be FIV/FeLV tested & my caregiver will take me in for that once there is a serious potential adopter. My mom & brother tested negative. Could you be that perfect person/home just for me? Please e-mail my caregiver at PML24@hotmail.com & tell her a little bit about yourself. She may then send you an application to fill out. Please be sure to put my name in the subject line also. I hope to meet my forever person soon!!!

Rescue Group Info...
Paws4Life, Inc. was established primarily to help care for homeless, abandoned, stray, & feral cats in Union County, NC.
Our county shelter's kill rate is currently 78% (over 90% for cats). Without TNR, stray & feral cats will continue to reproduce & continue adding to the overpopulation & high kill rate. Too often & too quickly animals that once had a home are abandoned for numerous reasons & le...ft to fend for themselves, opening their lives up to many new & unfamiliar challenges with the previous owners "hope" that they can make it on their own. I currently care for 4 homeless cats on a regular basis with a few others that "appear" from time to time. The 4 regulars have been spayed/neutered & should anymore come around regularly, they will be altered as well. They also are fed daily, have basic shelter from the elements & are given medical attention if needed. There were originally 6 regulars but recently we had to find one of them a home due to him developing allergies, & then one went missing for 2 weeks & upon return was limping. It was determined by the vet that she had been shot & sustained nerve damage to her leg.
Paws4Life, Inc. would like to encourage & be able to assist others with TNR missions & possibly start a program in the community that would assist other feral colony caregivers with the basics of caring for their homeless colonies.
Often times there are pleas either through e-mail or Facebook posts for financial help with urgent animal abuse/neglect cases or for assistance with transport of an animal being adopted. Paws4Life would like to contribute towards such situations if there comes a time when that is financially possible.
By example & through outreach, Paws4Life, Inc. hopes to educate more people in the local community about the responsibility of animal ownership & the importance of spaying/neutering. So often people just "didn't know" & if they can be taught & are willing to learn, not only does it benefit them but the community as well & ultimately, the animals. I 'didn't know' about the high-kill rate in our county's shelter until I asked. Maybe if more people knew the facts, more people would be motivated to work towards change.
ALL animals deserve the chance to live out their lives & I believe it is our responsibility, as the more intelligent species, to have regard for those lives. It is my hope, my wish, that more compassion & regard would be given to the lives of those who depend on us; That more people would stop & just "pause for life"!!
Amor conquista todo!!
