Domestic Cat    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Cats, Not Good w/ Dogs, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Lucy is a Senior cat that is currently in a home where she can no longer be cared for. The owners are my parents. My father has Parkinson's Disease and the sickness has become a full-time chore for both of them and they can no longer give her the attention she needs and deserves. She is approximately 14 years old, but in good health. She can be sweet and cuddly, but also likes her space at times. She was rescued from a shelter when she was less than a year old and it's very sad to let her go. If she is taken to a shelter, it is most likely she will be put down, as senior animals have a hard time being adopted out. I can't take her, as my ... (Read More)partner is highly allergic to cats. If there is a cat-lover out there, she could really use your help. My heart is bleeding for this girl. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-01-27-00589Jed (male)

Domestic Cat Mix    Age: Adult

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

    I adopted Jed from a shelter in 2012, at which time his fur - which is long and very fine - was heavily matted. The shelter had him trimmed (shaved) before I took him home, so it was some time before I learned that he does not tolerate normal grooming, so the mats returned as his fur grew. No matter what I try, I cannot brush the mats out; he fights anyone who tries to hold him down and shies away from any touch of the brush. The only way I've found to groom him is to take him to the vet so that he can be sedated: the full process costs $300 and needs to be done about every 8 months. Additionally, he becomes unable to keep his hindquarters ... (Read More)clean and will wipe himself on the carpet. Eventually I bathe him, which he hates but tolerates, but he doesn't stay clean for long unless he has been trimmed/shaved. He has never peed anywhere but in the litter box, although he recently started pooping on the floor (cement basement) near his box for no known reason. The final straw came last Summer when my adult daughter moved in with me; she has a fairly strong allergic reaction to him. On the plus side, he can be playful, will use a cardboard scratcher and leave your furniture alone, loves cardboard boxes and sunshine, is not a picky eater, and does not carry a grudge, even after all of the grooming battles, trips to the vet, and baths. He is quite independent and does alone in the house all day. He is not especially affectionate but likes a warm lap or a spot at the foot of the bed. He has been exposed to other cats and dogs and does not like them, but reacts by ignoring them and only gets upset if they try to approach him. I have had him for four years and just cannot keep up with him any more, especially now that my daughter is here. I realize that not everyone can adopt a cat like Jed, but if you can handle the maintenance and don't require that your cat be an attention hound, he could be a great companion. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Cat in Delaware
    Cats can make good pets in Delaware 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 Delaware 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. The cats in the Broadway show, Cats, were inspired by feral cats in London made famous as T.S. Eliot's Jellicle Cats. The largest domestic cat ever weighed was about 46 pounds!
