Meow! My name is Lily-Dilute Tort
Lily-Dilute Tort's Info...
I am already spayed, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Lily has had a rough life. She's 3-years old. She was living outside and was rescued during the winter. She was trapped in a Hav-A-Hart and taken straight to the Cleveland A.P.L. Unbeknownst to us she was pregnant and about to deliver her kittens. We didn't know at the time that the APL aborts kittens when stray or feral cats are brought in to be spayed or neutered.
This put Lily into a deep depression; losing her kittens. She refused to eat and literally laid around, refusing to move, just staring into space. We had to force her to eat through the use of a high calorie paste.
At the time she was rescued, our organization was new. We were contacted by a "rescue" who offered to give her therapy and the time and attention she needed. We learned the hard way a few weeks later that the "rescue" was really a front for an extreme hoarder. We contacted the hoarder and demanded Lily be returned. We were being refused so we went to the property. Long story short, Lily was inside a packed closet hiding. The room she was in had several other cats in it and was full of feces, urine, and vomit. The litter boxes hadn't been tended to in ages so the cats took to going on the floor. There wasn't fresh water either.
When we got Lily back she smelled awful, had fleas, roundworms and tapeworms. She was also in worse mental shape then when we trusted the "rescue" to take her. Long story short, Olmsted Falls Cat Rescue founder took her in and fostered her. It's taken years to get Lily happy, willing to be pet, and acclimated to people. BUT she is still shy with strangers and has bonded to her foster mom, who can't keep her long term due to a move in the summer of 2013.
Lily LOVES affection. We prefer an experienced adopter or person who really wants to rescue and make a difference in the cats life. It's taken awhile, but she is ready for adoption.
Rescue Group Info...
Olmsted Falls Cat Rescue came to be because the city of Olmsted Falls, OH offers NO ANIMAL CONTROL SERVICES and DOESN'T HAVE A RESCUE. We set up our web site to spread awareness, educate, and most of all, be a forum to post pictures and videos of the cats and kittens desperately needing homes. WE are 1 1/2 people. We are not an "official" rescue and hope someday soon Olmsted Falls will start providing its residents animal control services. Until then, here we are.
* We will courtesy post for people who want to relinquish their pets. However, the cats must be altered and up to date on shots. We will not take cats in who have lived indoors in a home and place them in our kennel. The kennel only has one cage, we don't have adequate help, so house cats regress in that setting. We pick up homeless cats.
Please contact Brandi Lynn Borgia at firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone (440) 840 - 2900 to make arrangements to meet one of our cats or kittens. Our cats and kittens are spread around in various foster homes.
Our cats are $40 and our kittens are $50. All of our cats & kittens are spayed, neutered, vaccinated, wormed, and treated with preventative flea/tick/parasite medication prior to adoption. Adoption donations are non-refundable.
