Rescue Me ID: 17-11-11-00094Rio (male)

American Shorthair    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Cats, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Leukemia (FeLV),
 Abused/Neglected 

    My husband and I recently took in a really friendly street kitty -- we were petting him when his owner informed us she had tossed him out because she'd recently adopted two dogs, and told us to feel free to take him home! We had another cat, so we quarantined him in a room in our house until we could get him tested and vaccinated, and were hoping he would be able to join our family. He is super affectionate and really calm, just a delight of a cat! Unfortunately the vet came back and told us he has feline leukemia, so we're worried about our existing cat, because it can spread through saliva. I also know that people have a lot of ... (Read More)misconceptions about feline leukemia -- even though most cats live a totally normal life with it -- and he'll probably have a hard time getting adopted at a regular shelter. He's between 2 and 6 years old, so fully grown, and at a healthy 10 pounds. He is 100% NOT feral and it's clear he's used to living in a home! To learn more about feline leukemia, here's a good primer: https://bestfriends.org/stories-blog-videos/latest-news/feline-leukemia-misconceptions We're looking for someone with a good heart to take him in! He'd need a home with no other cats (dogs and other animals would be totally fine!). He has all his shots (rabies, distemper) and is fixed. Happy to deliver to you for totally free! Just send me a message. Thanks for your time, all! - Raquel (Less)

    Tux was rescued from streets of Tehran, Iran where he was abused and had to have two surgeries for his broken jaw. These surgeries caused his mouth to stay a bit open, and it gives him such goofy look! But that doesnt stop him from being an amazing kitty!

PIease Read Before Adopting a Cat in D.C.
    Cats can make good pets in D.C. if they match your IifestyIe. Domestic Cats have been intriguing companions for humans since ancient times. Worldwide, cats are even more popular than dogs as pets. Sadly, huge numbers of cats are in need of adoption and care. A cat owner who no longer wants the cat, or is no longer able to care for a cat, may drop the cat off at a shelter or simply abandon it. Overcrowding in shelters, along with too few adoptive families for the cats, leads to many wonderful pets having to be euthanized. Abandoned cats fend for themselves and breed in the wild, forming colonies of feral cats. Feral cats have such a difficult existence that they typically only live an average of two years, whereas domestic cats can live an average of twelve years with proper care. Organizations exist that can catch and tame feral kittens, and then place them in a home, but adult ferals can rarely be socialized to trust humans. Meanwhile, many prospective cat owners choose to purchase a kitten from a pet store or breeder, and may not know that even purebred cats and kittens are often available for adoption.

    Once someone is ready for the responsibility of caring for a cat, adoption can be an incredibly rewarding decision. Adoption benefits cats, owners, and society alike. Adopting a cat is typically much less expensive than purchasing one. Shelters often have a wide selection of very sweet, friendly cats and kittens, including purebreds. Adoptive owners enjoy bonding with their pets, and have the extra satisfaction of knowing they have rescued a wonderful companion from a hard existence. Every cat adopted means one less cat has to be euthanized. Every kitten purchased new results in one less opportunity for adoption to take place. If you are ready for a pet cat, please consider adoption!

lnteresting Cat Trivia Low-Cost D.C. Spay & Neuter Clinics
    All domestic cats are descended from African wild cats. The cats in the Broadway show, Cats, were inspired by feral cats in London made famous as T.S. Eliot's Jellicle Cats. Cats were incredibly popular in ancient Rome; Rome may have been spared from plague outbreaks due to its huge population of feral cats keeping the rat population under control. Today, Rome has the largest number of feral cats of any city in the worldabout 300,000 felines! The largest domestic cat ever weighed was about 46 pounds!
