My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

Indi is an adult, neutered male cat, at least 10 years old.  He was living in an outdoor colony until recently, but had been TNR'd in the past.  He had an injured leg and very bad teeth, but he had a dental and feels much better.  He has decided to become a shelter kitty and would very much like to graduate to an adopted kitty.  Indi is quite confident in his room.  He owns the window ledge and loves to watch birds, squirrels, and leaves.  He accepts petting, although it's not something he seeks out and he will ask us to stop if we pet him for too long.  Indi will be happiest in a quiet home where he can enjoy his solitude, but still have human company and a measure of affection.  He is probably not a great match for a family with small children, but who knows ...once he gets his dental, he may be a totally different cat!

Indi took his retirement on the road to a foster home and he is loving being a household kitty.  He loves his foster home, but he's still open minded about being adopted!!

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.
