My story

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

Hey, it's me, Apricot! The "Mysteriously Timid Toothless Wonder"! 

I gotta admit, I may be a bit bashful, but I'm owning it like a purr-fessional!  Life gave me a twist by taking away most of my teeth due to an infection, but that doesn't stop me from being a purr-sonality with a unique charm! 

You see, I'm not the typical "lap cat" - nope, not me! I like my independence, and I'll accept pets on my terms. Give me some space, let me warm up to you, and you'll see the magic happen! 

Sure, I might not curl up on your lap, but I'll be your silent companion, watching your every move with curiosity and affection. 

I'm a low-maintenance kind of cat, with a taste for the finer things in life, like lounging in the sun and observing the world from a cozy nook. You'll find me gracefully navigating the room, always ready to charm you with my toothless grin! 

Now, here's the deal - I'm looking for someone who gets me, someone who appreciates my quirks and respects my boundaries. In return, I promise to be a loyal and endearing companion, the enigmatic cat that will leave you smiling with each secret purr. 

Spread the word, folks! Let them know the "Mysteriously Timid Toothless Wonder" Apricot is searching for a purr-fect match. Share the love, and let's embark on this enchanting journey together!

More about this rescue

Who We Are
Bailey's Human Rescue, Incorporated (BHR) is a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation based in Johnston County, North Carolina. BHR has established the first Trap Neuter Return (TNR) program in Johnston County, and provides a pet pantry for pet owners that need a little help. Through these programs, and community education, we hope to reduce the number of domesticated animals that meet an untimely end simply because they exist.

What We Believe
Bailey's Human Rescue was founded on the view that we, as humans, are responsible for the domesticated animal overpopulation crisis that we are faced with today. Humans chose to domesticate these animals, and humans have failed to manage their populations properly. It is inhumane for us to exterminate the animals we created and managed so poorly simply because it is the quickest option. If we work together, and chose humane methods, it is possible to end this crisis without causing unnecessary harm to these animals.
