Health: Needs to be Spayed, Needs Vaccinations 

    Delly says hello everyone! I am done with my mothering job, those little meowers are able to eat on their own, do their ablations on their own and I am proud to say I did a wonderful job with them. I was telling them to get the heck away from me quite often so the human who took us into her home brought me to the shelter to give me my vacation. I am great with kids, teens, adults, other cats, pretty much anything except dogs. I hate dogs. I am very laid back, don't get worked up over much of anything and I am ready to start my life with my own forever home.

Domestic Cat    Age: Young Adult

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

    Tinkerbell is a little shy but was a great mom to her four kittens that were born on March 27. She was very pregnant when she made her way to a country house and thankfully the owners were 'cat people'. They let her have her babies inside and then called us. Her kittens have all found homes. Unfortunately, in her time on the streets, Tinkerbell contracted a respiratory issue (non-contagious) that we are working to clear up so she needs to spend a little more time with us. She could be reserved and while she is a little shy, an experienced cat owner will have no problems getting her to open up.

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 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. 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!
