    ALL SUPPLIES INCLUDED. HEALTHY, AFFECTIONATE MOTHER AND SON URGENTLY SEEK LOVING HOME DUE TO DOG PROBLEMS IN THEIR HOME Shame on local CAT RESCUE organizations for telling the owners of this delightful Mom and Son pair of cats that they were 'unadoptable'! Sweet Shamu is a 6 year old male Tuxedo cat, and his Mom, Midnite, is a 7 year old velvety black 'purring machine'. These cats are so affectionate and friendly. They love people so much. The owners are having to find them a new home due to 'terrorist dogs' in the home who will not leave them alone. Both cats are spayed/neutered, up to date on shots, very healthy, clean and well behaved. ... (Read More)Please offer them the loving home they need and deserve today.

Rescue Me ID: 16-07-13-00255Rudi (male)

Bombay    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Due to an imminent move across the country, Rudi's humans are looking for a new home for Rudi. Rudi is an older cat (somewhere between 12 and 15 - he was found wandering at a train station a decade ago, so we don't know his age for sure), and we'd love to find a happy place for him where he can spend the rest of his life. All of his shots are current, and he has a clean bill of health. Despite his age, Rudi is very agile, curious, energetic, and engaged with humans. Rudi is an independent cat with a lot of personality - he won't want to sit in your lap, but once settled into a new situation, he'll definitely want to hang out near you and ... (Read More)would love it if you played with him. He is very clean and declawed (our friends got him in this state), in case delicate furniture is an issue. For the last decade, Rudi has been his humans' only cat, but he may enjoy the company of other cats. Rudi comes with all the necessary kitty accouterment (bowls, litter box, carrier, fur brush, toys, and catnip). All he needs is a place to live and at least one loving human. If you are interested in welcoming Rudi into your home, you can come meet him at our place in Washington, DC. We'd also come check out your place to make sure it's a good home for Rudi. We could then help move Rudi into your home any time between now and the end of July. (Less)

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Vaccinations Current 

    Vader is one of four kittens (his litter also includes Lena, Evie, and Mattie) born to a stray mother (Harper). Luckily, his mother chose the right house/family and had her kittens in the backyard. They were soon discovered when the mother cat kept showing up and have been watched over, loved, and socialized since then. Vader is one of the most laid back of the litter. He is usually pretty relaxed but loves to play at times too, of course. Vader is often seen hanging out with his sister, Mattie. He is currently around 6 weeks old and will be ready to travel to his forever home in about 2-3 weeks. They are currently eating canned food and ... (Read More)have started dry. Vader, his siblings, and their mother will be spayed/neutered, dewormed, microchipped, given their first flea/tick treatment, and will be up to date on all shots prior to their adoption. There will be an adoption application, contract, and small fee to help cover vetting costs. Serious inquiries only. Feel free to visit our website at snooperheroes.org for more information. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-06-15-00258Harper (female)

Domestic Cat    Age: Kitten

Compatibility: Good with Most Cats 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 

    Harper was a stray cat who was most likely dropped out at some point. She decided to have her kittens in a nice family's backyard who then noticed them and started to care for them all. Harper was very hesitant to interact with people, but after realizing that the people were good and were a great source of food, she has grown accustomed to them being around. She is still slow to love though and will require an owner who can work with her. She does not like to be picked up and is scared of jumpy motions, but has come a long way in just over a month and we do believe she could become a great pet. We would also consider adopting Harper out to ... (Read More)a nice indoor/outdoor home or farm home, granted that the home is in a rural area and away from any busy roads. She is great at catching mice and other small creatures and enjoys 'hunting' as it is something she has probably done for a while. She is probably fairly young (we would estimate around 1 year old), but we will know more after her vet check. Harper and her kittens will be spayed/neutered, dewormed, microchipped, given their first flea/tick treatment, and will be up to date on all shots prior to their adoption. There will be an adoption application, contract, and small fee to help cover vetting costs. Serious inquiries only. Harper will be spayed/neutered, dewormed, microchipped, given her first flea/tick treatment, and will be up to date on all age appropriate shots prior to her adoption.

Rescue Me ID: 16-06-15-00245Simon (male)

Domestic Cat    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Cats 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Simon is a two year old solid black male DSH. He came to us when he was found and was missing a leg. We gladly took him in to give him the care he needed and a safe place to recover. He has now recovered and we are happy to say that having three legs does not stop him! Our vet believes that he most likely lost his leg in a coyote attack. He is very shy around people and needs an adopter who is willing to give him time and let him come around on his own. He is great around other cats, but has had no experience with dogs. He is just the sweetest boy and once he trusts you, he enjoys your company. Simon would love to be adopted with his buddy, ... (Read More)Mia, as they really enjoy one another's company (Simon is quite shy and looks to Mia for direction), but we understand that not everyone can take on two cats so we are willing to accept individual applications. He is one of the sweetest cats we have ever met and we sincerely hope to find him a great home. Simon is fully vetted (neutered, FIV/FeLV tested, UTD on vaccinations, and microchipped). If you think Simon may be the right fit for your home, please contact us. There will be an application, adoption fee, home check, and contract.

Rescue Me ID: 16-06-15-00240Mia (female)

Domestic Cat Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Cats, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Mia is a 2 year old female kitten with a wonderful personality. She may have some Maine Coon mixed in, but we have no way of knowing for sure. She is a sweet girl and would be great in a home with other cats, a cat-friendly dog, and/or children. She loves being petted and is happy to just be around people. She has moderate energy and is ready to play when you are! She was rescued when she was about 6-8 weeks old and was very malnourished. She barely survived, but now she is healthy and loving life. She needs a home with people who are willing to keep her litter box very clean, as she will go outside of the box if it is not reasonably clean. ... (Read More)She has been returned once due to this issue, so we are looking for a forever home who will love and care for her regardless. She is a medium sized cat and is fully grown. She does need a lot of brushing/grooming, as she gets mats very easily. Mia would love to be adopted with her buddy, Simon, as they really enjoy one another's company (Simon is quite shy and looks to Mia for direction), but we understand that not everyone can take on two cats so we are willing to accept individual applications. Mia has been waiting a long time for a forever home and is so deserving. Mia is fully vetted (spayed, FIV/FeLV tested, UTD on vaccinations, and microchipped). If you think Mia may be the right fit for your home, please contact us. There will be an application, adoption fee, home check, and contract.

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. Cats were considered divine in ancient Egypt and are depicted in hieroglyphs and found mummified in the tombs of Pharaohs. 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!
