Persephone's Info...

I am already spayed and up to date with shots.

Persephone's Story...
I am a Shelter Pull Kitty! This means that when you adopt me, FOF can save another kitty from a high kill county shelter.'

Persephone was born in May 2011. Last fall we pulled her and her 4 kittens from a high kill county shelter in Allegan. Within a week mama came down with the deadly distemper (panleukopenia) virus, and all 4 kittens died. Horribly sad but a reality of rescue work.

Persephone became mildly ill and after a few days of fluids she recovered (most otherwise healthy adult cats will survive distemper). She was very hand shy from the start and it has taken months to get her to warm up. We transferred her from foster care to our adoption center and she is continuing to make progress socially. While not a cat who will greet you upon entering the room, she does enjoy tummy rubs and chin scratches! She also adores our cat mountain cat tree, and can usually be found cozied up in one of the tunnels

.Persephone was once a burden to someone, not important enough to spay before she became pregnant, and then dumped into a shelter with her 4 helpless babies. She has survived much and now we want to begin her final (and happiest) chapter by finding her a loving home.

All of our kittens are spayed or neutered, tested for FeLV/FIV, vaccinated against Distemper, and treated for fleas and other parasites.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Persephone, a Byron Center Calico cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Calico for sale in Byron Center, or seeking a Calico cat from a breeder in Byron Center.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Byron Center already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Byron Center breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Calico breeders who help with Calico rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Byron Center paves the way for another one to be saved.
