Facts about Doc

  • Breed: Oriental
  • Color: Black & White Or Tuxedo
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 5391412
  • Hair: Short

Doc (full name Dr. Watson) has a long tube like body and long skinny tail, long triangle face with big ears and striking bright emerald green eyes - all tell-tale signs of having some Oriental shorthair in him. He is a complete sweetie to people, vocal, and VERY playful with lots of energy. He will pour on the charm to try and get the one thing he wants in all the world: TREATS!!!! He might need a day to adjust to a new environment but then he warms up quickly, especially if you happen to have food. He even goes so far as to plop down on your lap and roll over and around giving you his best 'I'm so adorable and sweet give me something good to eat' poses. He purrs it up and does not mind being picked up but has a bit too much energy to be in your lap for long. He is very inquisitive and curious. He really enjoys interactive toys like those on a string. He is quite the talker and likes to tell you all about his day when you get home. He needs to be the only animal in his forever home, because other animals make his personality change completely. Honestly, if no animals are around, he is sweet as sugar and will let you do just about anything you want to him. He is a feline diabetic so he has to have insulin shots and have his blood sugar checked occasionally (things we can teach you to do easily). He is so good about it! He makes biscuits on his foster mom's lap while she tests his blood sugar and rumbles his purr all through out. He seeks out ear scritches and petting so that you will test his blood sugar. He is a carb fiend but he will only get a treat after tested and his blood sugar isn't too high.

About Fancy Cats Rescue Team, Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

Fancy Cats Rescue Team was founded to provide the community a "safety net" for cats and kittens that are abused and abandoned, or added to the euthanasia list at the shelters that we are currently participating with. We are a 501 (c) (3) Nonprofit Organization and participate with the United Way/CFC #8929. The goal is to have no kill shelters in place. Education and responsible pet ownership are the foundation of our organization. Our program provides literature, counseling, referral services and educational resources to families and individuals needing guidance. Teaching people responsible pet guardianship by spay and neutering their pets, behavioral modification and health concerns. We also provide a mentoring environment for our youth volunteers where they can learn the rewards of community service while caring for animals that need their gentle, loving kindness. They also interact with the community providing self-confidence and the ability to interact with a variety of cultures and diverse backgrounds. Once an animal is received into our program, they remain with us until a safe, appropriate home is found. They are never euthanized based on their age or space limitations. They are given appropriate medical care, immunizations, spays or neuters and endless hours of tender, loving care. We are an all-volunteer organization with no paid staff. We are funded by community donations, 91% goes toward the care and well being of our animals. Our adoption fees help offset our veterinary bills.

Our Adoption Process...

Our adopters fill out an application that screens for problems that may be detrimental to our cats and kittens. Once the adopter is approved we provide veterinary referrals which help with low cost spays or neuters for the kittens that are too young at the time of adoption. We are always available to help with behavioral issues that arise. We provide numerous information sheets in our adoption folders, plus the medical background of each cat. The only fees involved with our program are adoption fees that offset our veterinary bills.
