Rugby: 5 to 7 yr old male red tabby American Shorthair
You can clearly see an real indentation in the fur on this kitty's
neck. ( Look at his neck in the picture of him standing ) He was
recently wearing a tightly fastened collar, the kind that doesn't come off. He did not arrive at the shelter with a collar on. It is hard not to think his owner took off his collar and took him to the shelter and said he/ she had found him stray and brought him in out of the goodness of his or her heart. He is an unusual cat. American Shorthairs are like their British Shorthair counterparts - cobby bodied, muscular, healthy cats. The American Shorthairs come in more
color varieties, like this red tabby, than the British which tend
mostly towards solid colors.. These cats were originally bred to be working mousers. They were bred to be unusually hardy, living outside and able to withstand rain and cold. They live long healthy lives.
This boy has the dense plush coat that ,I am told, sheds rainwater.
It is a delight to touch.
He is a really nice cat. Fun to pet and cuddle with. He has been well cared for and loved. Whoever lost him or gave him up must miss him.
He is still in his post shelter isolation with me but he settled in quickly and is comfortable and friendly. He has a slight chip on an upper canine- you have to look carefully to see it. It is too superficial, I think, to need dental help. However it was enough to make this overcrowded shelter mark him down as "Needs Rescue" which means they will not put him up for adoption ( let the public know about him and see him )and he will quickly be put down if no rescue steps forward for him. I got him with two days to spare.
He has a huge personality and it is all delightful. Even these early photo's show what a character he is. I expect he is cat friendly and maybe dog friendly since he has a great deal of composure and confidence. He would fit well in a lot of different types of homes including busy ones with children. I doubt he needs the quiet, stable sort of home I am usually looking for. I am just guessing here but I expect he would be adorable playing with a pug dog or some such pooch rolling around and letting off some energy. Someone will be so lucky.
He eats wet and dry food and is litterbox perfect.
His foster mom is Harriet in Santa Cruz.
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.
