Rescue Me ID: 17-05-23-00466Salem (male)

Domestic Cat    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered 

    Here's my story.. I had two much loved female cats who had been born to a stray I took in thirteen years earlier. They were very attached to each other. Things were good until out of nowhere one of them catches a cold and dies. The one that was left stopped eating and went into a deep mourning. And then, a little kitten entered our lives. A feral had abandoned him in our front yard. And he was the friendliest, boldest feral I had ever seen. For months, I fed him and he hung around my flower garden, following me around, playing with my dogs.. It was hard not to like him. When winter came, I made the decision to adopt him. He had no survival ... (Read More)skills and the winters here can get well below zero. My older cat eventually warmed up to him. She started eating again and even played a little. But now, almost a year has passed and it was clear that my older cat was dying. She has kidney failure and is lingering. She needs quiet and lots of careful attention. Salem is just coming into his 'teenage' years and all he wants to do is play (often quite roughly) and look for ways to escape. I've had to separate them, as well as sequester him from my dogs. He needs lots of one on one attention (petting, play, challenges..) that I don't have to give him. I don't know when I'll be able to give him what he needs to be a happy, stable cat. Since he's been alone, he meows (sometimes yeowls) day and night. He paces. He's losing weight. And I'm afraid he's losing his feelings of trust for me. It seems cruel to keep him like this. I can't think of a better alternative than to try to place him with a new family. So, that being said... Salem is a large, black male cat with yellow eyes. He's fearless and especially likes dogs for some reason. He's intelligent and perfectly healthy. He needs a home without very small children, at least until he gets a little older. He isn't particularly cuddly, preferring to play or to lay at your feet, but again, that will probably change as he ages. He's a beautiful cat. What more can I say? He fought for this home. He deserves another that will be his to keep. Thank you for reading this. PS Please note that I took this picture of Salem in a makeshift outdoor cattery that my family and I put together for him.

He is somewhat of a therapy cat in that we've taken him to other cat adoptions/meetgreet and he helps relax the cat that may be adopted :-) Hes neutered, dewormed, vaccinated, and microchipped. Please contact Desert Paws animal rescue DesertPawsNM@gmail.com We are a foster-based rescue so we have no facility for you to view our adoptable animals. Our process ...

PIease Read Before Adopting a Cat in New Mexico
    Cats can make good pets in New Mexico 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!
