Silky's Story...

Silky came to Fancy Cats from a shelter with her 4 beautiful babies when they were only a week old. They have since been adopted, and she is still waiting for her forever home. Silky lives up to her name with her shantung silk textured grey tabby coat marked with white on her paws and belly. She's one of the most loyal felines you'll ever meet. Once she's bonded with you, you have a friend and protector for life. She is very social and likes to introduce herself to new people when they enter your house. She comes running down the stairs to greet you when you come home, stopping at your feet to flop down, roll over and entice you to pet her. When you're sitting at the computer, she likes to join you either right in your lap or on the chair next to you, purring happily. At night, she will bring you toys, calling softly as she carries them to wherever you are. Her favorite toy is a wand with a feather on a string; she'll carry it around the house and drop it near you when she's ready to play! She came to her foster family after she had kittens. She was a sweetly protective mom, allowing people to handle her babies under her watchful eye - and sometimes she would gently take a baby from your hands if she thought you weren't holding it properly. Now that her kittens are all grown and adopted, she is wondering where her forever family is. She is excellent with adults and children of all ages, as well as other friendly laid-back cats and dogs. Her litterbox manners are perfect.

For the month of July, Fancy Cats is celebrating our senior cats by reducing adoption fees for all cats ages 8 and over to only $20! Ask us if the cat you are interested in is in this age range. Not ready to adopt, but would like to foster a cat or kitten? Email to find out how!

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.
