Rescue Me ID: 17-03-23-00157Jynx (female)

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Cats, Not Good w/ Dogs, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Fearful/Anxious 

    Jinx can be a very loving animal once she gets to know you. All her items come with adoption. Her owner is moving out of state and can not take her with. Trying to find a new loving home for her. It takes her awhile to get used to her surroundings and people but once she warms up to you, she will be the most loving pet anyone could ask for. She loves playing fletch with her tiny blue and pink mice. She's a huge cuddler and very affectionate. I love her dearly , but I know what's best for her well being. I'm going to miss her so much. She needs a home with the same kind of love. Somewhere she will be safe. She's my baby.

Domestic Cat    Age: Young Kitten

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Needs Vaccinations, Fearful/Anxious 

    He is about 8 weeks old. He was dropped off at our house in the country, and I have been feeding him. With winter getting ready to set in I really want him to get a home so he don't freeze to death out there. I am able to hold him sometimes. He is still very scared of people... which is understandable, but when I hold him he gives me head bumps and kisses my nose. I wish I could take him in, but I just can't :-( please someone, give him a good home

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, FIV 

    Vinnie is an active cat that was adopted from Animal Lifeline in 2004 as a one year old cat and recently returned when he was not adjusting to new pets that were brought into his home. When he returned he tested positive for FIV but is a very healthy cat that is not showing any signs of the disease, so we assume he is a just a carrier of FIV. He doesn't show any signs of slowing down and loves to watch the birds outside the window and gets excited when he sees the occasionally squirrel! He is an awesome cat that still has lots of love to give.

    Regina was found as a stray in southern Iowa and when she tested positive for FIV, that shelter contacted Animal Lifeline and we had room! She can be a little shy and she does not like to be picked up but she loves to be petted. She does prefer 'her own space' so a home without young children would be best. Because she is FIV positive, she will need a home with no other cats or where the other cats are FIV positive and not in 'her face'. Healthy and content best describes this special lady that was born in 2008.

PIease Read Before Adopting a Cat in Iowa
    Cats can make good pets in Iowa 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 Iowa Spay & Neuter Clinics
    All domestic cats are descended from African wild 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!
