Story
“Panda” was found in the yard as a stray kitten. In December 2018 went to vet for shots and neutering. Now he is approximately 5.5 years old. He acclimated to our home well. He loves being outside, weather permitting. Also loves to cuddle in a lap for purring and kneading. He has had his shots and check-up yearly at Hillcrest Animal Hospital. Never had a major illness or injury. He has shared our home with other cats(3) and always seems quite laid back around them. He will share a food dish without fighting; sometimes just sits back and waits for his turn. Occasionally will pop other cat on the head to remind them he wants some food, too. His favorite play is “ hunting “ bugs, vole, mice in the yard. Napping. He does run from strangers, i.e. service, delivery people, but always sticks close to home for food. He’s never been collared, and is not declawed. No experience with dogs or children. New owner should keep him indoors several weeks, until fully acclimated. Shots due now

Story
This is a courtesy listing and not affiliated with Desoto Animal Rescue Society. Please contact owner for information. Nixie was rescued from an oil drilling field in downtown Memphis. Once she was all cleaned up and given a clean bill of health from the vet, she has proven to be a little black ball of sunshine and an absolute cuddlebug!  She is 3.4 months old. I’m unable to house her anymore because my dorm has a strict “no pets” policy but I don’t want to leave her at a shelter. I can’t find any rescue centers to take care of her and really want to see her taken to a loving home.  Please direct any interested inquiries to secondbhousman@gmail.com or (901) 297-0840.

Dawn is a gorgeous Brownish/Silver tabby.  She was abandoned in a carrier behind PetSmart.  Her eye is cloudy and she has some sight loss in one eye, but she has full sight in her other eye. She is super friendly and snuggy and gets along with both dogs and other cats. She would make a great family kitty. She loves her people and loves to have a conversation with you.   She loves to be your lap puddle and would be perfect to keep you company. She has been spay/neutered, had all age appropriate vaccines, microchip, and a confirmed NEGATIVE FIV/FeLV test.  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.
