Katie's Info...

I am already spayed and up to date with shots.

Katie's Story...
Cat-Tales of Katie: When I spent 3 hours with Katie's mom ...Katie was very accepting of the stranger in her home. She came up to be pet twice. ....and is very playful. She will settle into her new home in a very short time frame. I can tell she knows something is up with mom & moving. She is a very sweet kitty.

Katie's Cat-Tale: Katie's mom is heartbroken over the fact that she has to re-home two of her cherished rescued cats. She has to move into new housing for her sake and her cats. She lives in an apartment complex where a tenant has threatened her and her cats. The landlord has been no help, nor anyone else. She has been feeling so much heartache over having to give up 2 of her fur-babies that she is sick over it all.

Katie was born about April 2003.

This is what Katie's mom wrote about her personality:
Sweet, loving

A rescue kitty found outside during heavy storms in May, 2003. Limping, wet and hungry, she appeared and meowed to me. After eating 2 cans of cat food, I leaned over to speak to her, and she gently touched my cheek with her paw. For a few more days, she would appear out of nowhere to greet me each morning and afternoon for her food, always sweet and grateful.

She has beginnings of arthritis on her left front
and back legs -- a result of being hit by a car before I found her. She cried out just hearing a car pass by, and followed me to my front door and into my heart since then. She lives witih 3 other cats, and she's the only female.

She has had all her shots and is spayed. She loves toys, to be brushed or combed, and her 'Raggety Andy' doll. She is also very smart and lets me know when she wants to be brushed! I also sing to her, which she always responds to.

Please, consider adopting Ricky along with Katie ..... they would do wonderful as a pair - (raised together) - as they are very comfortable with each other, this would make the transition much less stressful if they were to be adopted as a pair.

Please ...if you FEED them FIX them! Todays kittens become TOMORROWS breeding & unwanted mom cats.........literally. www.ucan..org - LOW cost spay/neuter clinic in Cincinnati .......cost for spay/neuter about $35. There are NOT enough rescuers, helping hands or HOMES for all the animals in need. The county that Cincinnati is in Euthanizes over 23,000 cats/year......this is just ONE county in the state of Ohio - ONE state in the 50 states of the U.S.A. ...........this IS worldwide ........spay/neuter your pets as welll as stray/feral cats. Information on Stray/Feral cats; www.alleycat.org and www.neighborhoodcats.org. Two well known organizations out of NY city that offer educational materail to help educate the public and teach you the right thing to do for the life of the strays/feral cats in your neighborhood.

Cats can get pregnant as young as 4 months of age and can have 4 litters a year. STOP the cycle of breeding Spay/Neuter Today! There are not enough homes. Every human being would have to care for and own 12 cats in order for every cat to have a home. Thus, a family of 3 people would own 36 cats!


We always take the cat back. It may be one year, three years or ten years down the road... we want the cat to have a home. Whether it be due to moving, allergies or something else. We're in it for the cats. At Cat-Tales Rescue we offer the option of Microchipping your cat, if not already done so [we've just started to do it the summer of 2007 and have it done when they are spaye/neutered. IF they are not already done they can be done for a fee of $12. We give you all the necessary paperwork to register them with 24-Pet Watch. We offer a discount if adopting a pair of kittens/cats. Each cat[under 3 yrs of age] or kitten is $80 to adopt......if a pair of cats/kittens are adopted at the same time it is $70/cat [under 3 yrs of age] or kitten. Cats over 3 yrs of age are $60. Owner relinquished cats are $55. All of our animals are tested for FIV/FeLV [if they are kittens the mom is tested and we strongly suggest the new owners have them tested when they are 6 months of age, as a guideline for the cats health]. All are spay/neutered, vaccinated [if adopted before the age at which their rabies vaccine can be given (3-4 months of age) it is the owners responsibility to get them their vaccine]. We also treat them for earmites, roundworms/hookworms and if necessary protozoa and giardia. We give you all the baby photos we have. We also give you their favorite toys and some catnip. We have lots of information available in handouts if there is a subject that you have questions about [we use very well known internet sites on cat care]. We are always available should any questions arise. We offer cedar scratching posts that all of our cats use, we also have nail clippers that are at our cost. Trimming a kittens nails when they are falling asleep is the best time. It is just a matter of getting them into the habit a couple times/month of having it done.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Katie, a Cincinnati Domestic Shorthair cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Domestic Shorthair for sale in Cincinnati, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Cincinnati.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Cincinnati 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 Cincinnati 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 Domestic Shorthair breeders who help with Domestic Shorthair rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Cincinnati paves the way for another one to be saved.
