My story

This is a courtesy post. The cat is not at our sanctuary.
Please see contact information at the end.

My name is Niki and I am trying to rehome a cat that belonged to my mother. I am in the Columbia, SC area but am willing to drive her to a good home.

Leia is an 8 year old spayed female who will flourish with an experienced owner who understands her signals. Leia loves to show affection by rubbing up against you and giving headbutts, but she would rather give pets than receive them. She is playful and loves crinkly balls, cat nip, and wand toys. She is a great conversationalist and is not afraid to say what's on her mind. In between deep conversations and play time Leia would love to snuggle up in your lap and just chill. Leia would prefer a home with a cat buddy and isn't familiar with dogs. Leia is most comfortable around adults and would do best in an adult-only home.

Best contact information for me is my email: and phone number: (803) 216-5336.

More about this rescue

Whiskers Animal Rescue and Sanctuary is a 501c3 nonprofit organization devoted to helping rescuing animals in need for many years. We primarily concentrate on rescuing cats and kittens in SC and NC states, occasionally performing out of state rescues as well. We had started rescuing animals back in 1985 and since then we have helped over 4500 animals by re-homing them, providing medical care, vaccinating, finding permanent homes for most of them, transporting to other rescues or homes, cross posting and advertising in local magazines and providing shelter for some of the animals a few of whom are still with us until this present day. Our rescue got incorporated as W.A.R.S in August 28th of 2009. Our main interest is to promote responsible guardianship of domestic animals and advocate a compassionate and ethical treatment of all animals. Our rescue group actively enforces to spay and neuter animals in our community which extends to the Northern Horry County and Myrtle Beach area. We promote low cost spay and neuter programs by trying to reduce the number of unwanted, sick and untreated yet adoptable animals who are being euthanized in local shelters for the above-mentioned reasons. Their only “fault” is that they don’t have a home. We have been rescuing such animals from various shelters in SC and NC areas providing them with shelter and urgent and continuous medical care. Our mission is to promote adoption and provide temporary or long-term housing for abused, abandoned, sick and neglected animals until their permanent home can be obtained. Our organization along with our volunteer foster homes also offers a long-term sanctuary to the aged, infirm and non-adoptable animals due to their personality or health issues at all times. On many occasions we are proud to participate in feral cat TNR programs where we assist other rescues or perform the services ourselves. We love every animal we save and consider them our family.
