My story

Reuben is an adult, neutered male cat, probably born 2019.  He's a gentle, tenderhearted little man who likes to view life from a bit of distance.  He arrived with a large family and he is always in the middle of a kitty pile.  He loves wall boxes, especially with a couple of his buddies packed in.  He adores playing turtle under an overturned cat bed.  He will even eat well when covered up.  He is currently in a colony with Mai Tai and Empress, who are related to him somehow - grandma, mom, auntie, cousin...we don't know.  We just know he loves them and loves to cuddle with at least one, if not both - and a few other cats thrown in for good measukre.  He is slowly learning confidence in his colony room, but he will always be a kitty who needs a friend and who gets attached to just one or two people, and that's ok.  Not everyone has to be a social butterfly - the gentle, quiet ones are just as beautiful in their own way!

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

Cat's Cradle requires an application, site visit, and interview. If a prospective adopter rents their home, we will call the landlord to confirm that pets are allowed on the property. Our adoption counselors will work hard to find the best match for the both family and the shelter cat. Our 2012 adoption fee is $109. This includes: intake health exam & FEL/FIV screening; 3 doses of roundworm de-wormer (and other parasite screening/treatment when necessary); age-appropriate vaccinations (rabies and distemper, including booster shots for kittens); spay or neuter surgery; microchip; and any other medical treatment recommended by the attending or consulting veterinarian(s) (for injury, illness, infection, etc). We allow a three week trial period to make sure that the cat and his/her new family are a good match, and if things don't work out...we always want our cats back! We prefer to adopt in our own area because A) we insist on meeting prospective families and B) we will not risk shipping our cats. We reserve the right to decline to adopt any cat into a situation that we feel will not meet his/her needs.

More about this shelter

Cat’s Cradle Shelter, Inc. is a non-profit, volunteer-run, no-kill shelter located in Fargo, ND. We opened on January 1, 2012. Our mission is to create a more humane and compassionate world, one cat at time. Cat’s Cradle is a colony-based shelter with 7 colony rooms and an isolation/medical room with seven private units (plus room for additional temporary units). We utilize foster homes for kittens less than 12-14 weeks old and for cats needing extra medical care or socialization/attention. Most of our residents are last-chance pound rescues. We typically have between 60 and 90 cats in care (it varies with need), and adopt 30-40 each month (hopefully more!). Cat’s Cradle is part of a new, multi-disciplinary effort with staff from three pounds, animal control officers, veterinarians, and community supporters) to reduce the number of adoptable cats being killed in area pounds. We are proud to be an integral link since July 2012 to bringing the number of adoptable cats being euthanized in our community down to ZERO.
