My story

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

Cute tabby and white boy for adoption .

Courtesy Post


Staley, NC
Howie is a sweet tabby and white boy born around June of 2022.  He showed up as a stray at a woman's home, coming right on inside with her cats.

He's been around both cats and dogs.  He loves to play and he likes to cuddle.  He's very shy around new people, but it takes less than a day for him to warm up in a new place and make friends.  He loves to be petted and likes laying in a lap making biscuits.  He adores his doggie housemate, rolling in her bed and laying next to her when he gets a chance. He's recently decided that he loves to be picked up and held.    
He is neutered, tested negative for FIV and FeLV, is up to date on his rabies vaccination, and was treated for fleas and worms.

More about this rescue

Dedicated to finding exceptional homes for exceptional cats

Specializing in Manx, but we'll accept Japanese or American Bobtails and Pixie-bobs

In 1995 my neighbor's Manx cat had kittens. There was a tiny runt in the litter that wasn't expected to survive. I was there when the kittens were born, and I volunteered to provide a home for the runt if she made it. That was Misty, and the beginning of my love for the Manx breed.
After several years of rescuing Manx and other tailless cats through all breed rescues, in 2006 I decided to start my own rescue and TCR was born.

TCR is run entirely out of foster homes. So the number of cats we can take at a time is limited to the space we have. We also have to respect NC law which limits the number of animals that can be fostered at a time. And we will only have as many cats as we can afford to care for at one time.

TCR is all about the cats. The rescue is based on the highest standards of honesty, ethics, and care for the cats in our program. Our motto is "Dedicated to finding exceptional homes for exceptional cats". And Manx and other tailless breeds really have exceptional personalities and deserve the best homes possible.

Most of the cats come from animal shelters or pounds where they have run out of time and are going to be euthanized. We generally don't take owner surrendered cats. We believe that once you make a commitment to a cat, it should be for a lifetime. We will assist owners in how to find homes for their cats if they can no longer keep them, and will provide access to expert advice on solving behavioral or health problems so that it is more likely they can stay in their homes.
