I am already spayed, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Miss Bliss-edob 4/24/12's Story...
Miss Bliss was rescued from under a school building before it was sealed. She was only three weeks old. [est dob 4/24/12] She is now a beautiful and sweet young cat. She is small and sleek with med/short legs and med/long body. She was fostered at a doggy daycare with one dog that particularly liked kittens and was handled by the granddaughter. Miss Bliss is a true lap cat and really sweet. She sleeps with me, too. Black cats and kittens are not adopted in October, so this is an ideal time to look at Miss Bliss! She can be seen by appointment. 480-694-9998 Note, she is a twin with Miss Holly and they are still close. We would like them to go together, but haven't made a big deal about it. The picture is Miss Moss, but they are identical twins. They sometimes eat from the same plate, so would be a great selection if you wanted two cats.
I'm a retired Agricultural Engineer. I operated the rescue house for Safe Haven for Animals for three years 24/7 (40-80 cats & kittens, all wet food and medicines). There were animals that Safe Haven was not able to rescue that I began taking, so chose to focus on those in my own home and assist in placement of cats in Safe Haven for Animals' rescue house.
I still do some workshop facilitation and small consulting jobs. I do cat rescue because I love animals, have an incredible mentor (apprenticed to vet before starting to rescue cats) and because there is huge need, especially in our current economy here in Arizona.

Our Adoption Process...
Simple contract. Fee is donation, usually between $60 and $100 depending on animal. Special animals will have higher or lower adoption fees or arrangements. We accept other donations, but are not yet an independent 501c3. Our veterinary costs at this time average $110/female and $92/male kitten. Food and litter avarage $1000/month+. We love PetSmart or PetCo gift cards! We feed ProPlan Chicken & Rice Adult to almost all cats (always available) and Fancy Feast wet food twice a day with some Trader Joe's Tuna for Cats. Wet food is as a check on health issues as well as added moisture in diet and treat. Cats we adopt from our home or the Safe Haven house have been tested for FeLV/FIV, inoculated against upper respiratory diseases and have been spayed or neutered. We do not adopt out unaltered animals. As of July 2012, we cannot take in any more cats until a significant number have been rehomed. We do not euthanize unless the health of the animal demands, so must make room with adoptions. We adopt to indoor-only situations. We seek homes where they don't declaw, but may be placing a declawed cat. We work with a veterinarian to place rescued animals turned in to their clinic that are considered adoptable. We help in their recovery as needed first. Similar police issues. We work to assist Safe Haven for Animals, Inc., in placing their cats and showing at sites they cannot cover. Usually, the cats/kittens are in our home, private homes (SOS Kitty fosters) or in the Safe Haven rescue house. A few are on the local animal rescue network or in other private homes. We usually take cats/kittens to the potential adopter's home for evaluation, We have foster locations where we can show cats/kittens by appointment, We show cats & kittens every Thursday at Trendy Pet & Rescue in Scottsdale Fashion Squar. Wwe show cats at Choice (Shea & 71st Streets) two Sundays a month and PetCo (Fountain Hills) one Saturday a month. We will take back any adult cat within 30 days if the placement does not appear to be satisfactory and refund the rehoming fee. Ditto kittens but usually no refund. We want each of our rescues to be in permanent, loving homes.
