Story
After being in rescue for over a year, this sweet kitty is more than ready for her forever family. MK and her son, BK came to us after after a kind hearted person took them in then sadly, she passed away. We originally thought they were bonded and needed to be adopted together but after introducing a new foster kitten into the mix, they've shown that while they love each other, they can bond with other animals. They'd love to go together if anyone is open to a pair. We do offer a discount for pair adoptions. This sweet girl was initially shy and took a little while to open up but she has BLOSSOMED! She comes out for pets, has the best time rolling around on rugs, has picked her favorite perch by the front window, and is amazing with dogs. She needs a little introduction for new cats but warms up . Another cute MK tidbit is that she's vocal and loves to tell you she's missed you or that you're 30 seconds late to feed her. Right now MK prefers sitting next to you for head rubs and walking across your lap. She also rubs your legs until you pay the "petting toll". MK is fully vetted, litter boxed trained, and ready to live her best life. Either together or separate, this dynamic duo have been looking for their families for over a year and we're hoping this is their time to shine! Both cats will make amazing additions to the right homes. They're loving, sweet, young, and do funny cat things while still balancing people to alone time. If you are interested in giving these sweet cats a home, please apply today via this link: dixiegirldogrescue.org/forms. We'll forward that to their foster who will reach out to answer any questions. \ ===================================================================================== If interested in adopting one of our available pets, please fill out an application at http://www.dixiegirldogrescue.org/forms Our rescue are fostered in Alabama foster homes and are posted for adoption once they are completely vetted and ready to travel. Our pets are adoptable in Alabama and New England States. Our adoption fee includes transport fee, spay/neuter, current vaccinations, deworming, heart worm test (Dogs) for animals over 7 months old, feline leukemia testing (cats) all necessary vetting and an interstate health certificate. Once an application is received, our team is happy to answer all of your questions and send additional pictures and videos. Thank you for thinking rescue!

Story
Pebbles (3yrs F) and Bam-Bam (3yrs M) are a bonded pair of the best cats you'll ever meet. They've had a rough life, but you would never know it now! They started out as semi-feral (SEEMING-feral) strays, and were trapped in a TNR program in Nov. 2022. But their foster mom decided to give them a chance, and after months of rehab and socialization, they came out of their shells and transformed into wonderful house cats! Bam-Bam likes to follow you around talking to you, Pebbles loves a warm lap to sleep on, and both love to PLAY! They are also unbeatable hunters - watch out, mice! They might seem skittish and need some time to adjust to a new home (most cats do need several weeks anyway), so they would do best with a patient adopter who is willing to wait a little bit. But if you give them a chance, you will be amazed at these loving, sweet, adorable cats. And they are great at making friends with other cats. Now they just need a permanent home. You can be a part of their miracle story!

Story
Pebbles (3yrs, F) and Bam-Bam (3yrs, M) are a bonded pair of never-say-never MIRACLE cats! They began as semi-feral (aka SEEMING-feral) outside cats, trapped in Nov. 2022 in a TNR program. It looked like it was already too late for them, but after spending a few months indoors in a foster home, they started to come out of their shell. They have now been patiently rehabilitated and TRANSFORMED into wonderful house cats. Bam-Bam is a big, rambunctious boy who loves to follow you around talking; Pebbles is a quieter, sweet little lady who enjoys lap time and chin scratches. Both love to play and HUNT (watch out, mice!) and are all trained up for the indoor life. They have not yet left their first home, so they may need some time to adjust to a new place (like most cats), but they are adaptable! They were given a second chance at life, now they're just waiting for a home that can make their new life permanent!

POUNCER IS IN HIS FOSTER HOME IN MEMPHIS TN AND WILL BE TRANSPORTED TO PA ONCE HE IS ADOPTED! This is Pouncer. He gets along great with everyone and other cats. He would do great as a single in a low-activity house or with a fun outgoing buddy to play with. Has been around dogs and is friendly to friendly dogs. He is slightly shy at first, but once he gets to know you, he loves to be petted and snuggled with.  He is gentle but would be skittish around children or high/loud activity.  He loves to be on your shoulder and receive belly rubs. He is neutered, has had all age appropriate vaccines, microchip, and a confirmed NEGATIVE FIV/FeLV test.  His adoption fee of $295 also includes the transport to PA.  We use a licensed and registered USDA transport company that will bring him up north once he is adopted. If you are interested in adopting, please go to our website and complete an online application using this link: http://www.newbeginningsanimalrescue.net.   Once your application is received and processed you will be contacted by an NBAR Volunteer.
