Local adoptions only--within a 50 mile radius of Quail Valley/Menifee, southwest Riverside County. L.A. and Orange Counties are out of area due to traffic/drive time. Ross is a gorgeous gray tabby with white who weighs 8 lb and his estimated DOB is 2-17-11. He's relatively small for a male cat and has a triangular head and slender body like a Siamese. He has been neutered, vaccinated, dewormed, tested negative for FIV/FeLV. Ross was rescued from a breeder turned hoarder situation and was living indoors in horrible conditions. Ross is a very sweet boy and likes to come up for attention, petting and treats. He is afraid of strangers, though, which makes it difficult to show him to people who are interested in him, but if given a chance in his own home, we know he will blossom into a loving companion. He will just need time to get to know you and trust you. He is submissive to other cats and some more confident cats tend to bully him, so he really would love and deserves a home of his own. Living their lives in a rescue environment is not the same as living in their own home, they need someone to spend time with them, give them one on one attention and play with them and they will blossom in their own home or homes. $25 adoption fee, cash only, which is to help with a portion of expenses for cat rescue and rehabilitation. Adoption contract required. Location: Quail Valley/Menifee, Southwest Riverside County. Local adoptions only; within 50 mile radius because we deliver animal to its new home. We are looking for adopters who are willing and able to care for this pet for its lifetime (15+ years). If interested, please email us with a little info about you, your family, your other pets, where you live, etc. Thank you. Our adoption process involves meeting the animal by appointment. We have the best interest of the animal in mind and our goal is to find a good, permanent home for each of our rescued animals. We have the right to decline an application if we feel it is not a good match/fit or suitable home. If you like the animal and we both feel it is a good match, an application and adoption contract is completed. A convenient day/time is arranged for us to deliver the animal to its new home to do a home/yard check (to make sure the home and yard is safe and secure). We will collect the adoption fee (cash only) when we deliver the animal to its new home. All our adoptions are on a trial basis because our goal is to have a successful adoption where the animal has a good permanent home and never ends up in a bad situation again. We ask that you give the animal a chance to adjust and settle in his new home and environment. Going to a new home with new people and a new environment is traumatic and stressful. It will take time for the animal to become comfortable around you and his/her new home. This should be a bonding period where you get to know the animal and connect with it, spend time with it and take things slow. He/she will need to get to know and trust you and learn the rules of the house and what is expected of him/her. This takes time, sometimes 2-3 weeks. During this time we will hold the adoption fee and if the adoption is not working out, we ask that you contact us and return the animal and we will refund your adoption fee.
