Meow! My name is Polo
|Breed:||Domestic Shorthair||Color:||Gray Or Blue (Mostly)||Age:||Adult|
I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, and good with kids.
Polo, is a gray and white tuxedo cat. He is about 2.5 years old and is delightful to be around. He is a child friendly cat and loves to watch from the highest window in the house. He is not a lap cat, but is a huge chatter box! He loves to be rubbed and is okay with being carried around for short periods. He loves to play 'soccer' with things around the house, whether it is a pencil or a small toy. He eat about twice a day, and needs plenty of water. He has been fed primarily Purina One (chicken and rice, salmon, or the turkey flavors) (wet food and any of the seafood combo foods give him a tummy ache).
Overall Mr. Polo is a very happy kitty! It was such a delight to share the past two years with him, he is a very low maintenence and awesome pet! Single bachelors/bachelorettes would love him!

Rescue Group Info...
Fancy Cats Rescue Team was founded to provide the community a "safety net" for cats and kittens that are abused and abandoned, or added to the euthanasia list at the shelters that we are currently participating with. We are a 501 (c) (3) Nonprofit Organization and participate with the United Way/CFC #8929. The goal is to have no kill shelters in place. Education and responsible pet ownership are the foundation of our organization. Our program provides literature, counseling, referral services and educational resources to families and individuals needing guidance. Teaching people responsible pet guardianship by spay and neutering their pets, behavioral modification and health concerns. We also provide a mentoring environment for our youth volunteers where they can learn the rewards of community service while caring for animals that need their gentle, loving kindness. They also interact with the community providing self-confidence and the ability to interact with a variety of cultures and diverse backgrounds. Once an animal is received into our program, they remain with us until a safe, appropriate home is found. They are never euthanized based on their age or space limitations. They are given appropriate medical care, immunizations, spays or neuters and endless hours of tender, loving care. We are an all-volunteer organization with no paid staff. We are funded by community donations, 91% goes toward the care and well being of our animals. Our adoption fees help offset our veterinary bills.
Our adoptions are held at the Fair Lakes PETsMART in Fairfax Virginia, at the Chantilly PetsMART, at the Gainesville PetsMART, and at the Springfield PetsMART
Check our website for upcoming adoptions. www.fancycats.org
Our adopters fill out an application that screens for problems that may be detrimental to our cats and kittens. Once the adopter is approved we provide veterinary referrals which help with low cost spays or neuters for the kittens that are too young at the time of adoption. We are always available to help with behavioral issues that arise. We provide numerous information sheets in our adoption folders, plus the medical background of each cat. The only fees involved with our program are adoption fees that offset our veterinary bills.
