Other Pets at Shelter...
|Breed:||Domestic Shorthair||Color:||Brown Tabby||Age:||Young|
Charlie was rescued in October 2012 from a feral cat colony off Brook Rooad. Her now foster mom decided to keep her because she has always been more willing to socialize with people. Even the very first day she was following her to the car. Soon after being trapped Charlie started purring when a yummy snack was offered. Now, she can’t get enough petting and she purrs constantly. She is now a very playful and loving 5 mothn old teenager. Charlie loves to play with pom-poms, balls, feather wands and best of all – the laser pointer. She craves human attention and wants to be petted all the time. She is very interested in dog and cat companionship as well. Unfortunately, despite Charlie’s friendly personality, the other cat in the house dislikes her and is aggressive towards her, so sometimes Charlie has to spend time in a bedroom with the door closed for her own safety. This makes her sad because she really wants to be a part of the family.

Prior to adoption, every CARE cat/kitten has received a thorough exam from a veterinarian, has tested negative for FIV/Felv (except as otherwise noted), been spayed/neutered, dewormed, given flea preventative, and been inoculated against distemper. Rabies vaccine is given if the feline is over 4 months. Any other desirable medical attention has also been provided. Also, each cat/kitten has spent its rescued time in a private home in foster care being loved and assessed for temperament and personality, needs, likes and dislikes.
After your approval by our volunteers, a legal contract is signed with an adoption donation attached (this donation helps defray the medical costs incurred); and, you receive a free vet office visit at a participating vet within the first week.
Adoption Fee is a Donation.
