Shelley 5 yr old female tortie point Himalayan
Shelley's human mom was about to be literally locked out of her sold at short sale home midnight on Saturday. She had tried numerous Southern California rescues to find someone to take her kitties and nothing had fallen into place. When we heard of the situation we were very far away and had 4 days to get her four cats or they would go to the shelter. ( Her mom was moving into a rented room in someone's house and could not keep them) Yikes. We went on Craig's List rideshare and found a very nice grad student who- for a fee- brought them up to us two days later. I am so glad we got them up here safe and sound. What nice, beautiful, vulnerable cats they are. If you have been watching the Persian page you have already seen one of them, tiny Miss Jubilee, who just went to a great home today. Now it is time to introduce Shelley to everyone.
Shelley is a big girl, 9 pounds 5 ounces. She came to us badly matted and we started shaving her the minute we got her out of her carrier. The last photo below shows how the matt on her rear flank was about 7 or 8 inches wide and 1 inch thick. This is painful for her since every movement she makes pulls the already tight hairs. So we shaved her over the course of three days and you can see we did not do a lovely job but she didn't care. We will go back and try to tidy her up and give her a bath. But what a beauty she is. Her fur coat will grow back.
So meanwhile she is a happy girl. She was bought from a breeder but we don't know which one. Her file lists only her age and birth date.
We have no other history. We have given her her FVRCP vaccination and wormed her and put her on preventive flea med's. None of these cats had fleas. The files on the other two show regular vet visits and good vet care being given so I would assume the same is true for Shelly.( Hmmm Maybe I will call those vets and see if they have records on Shelley too. )
I love Shelley's face and her wonderful personality.( I tell her she is my favorite) She is a good natured, confidant, healthy, athletic girl. She is easy to care for and love and someone will be lucky to have her companionship. Shelley seems cat friendly but would possibly be happy as an only cat with someone who is home all the time. Either way she needs a home where she will get lots of attention and love.
She is used to eating only dry food but will eat wet if it is given to her and she is litterbox perfect.
New photos soon.
Her 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.
