Local adoptions only--within a 50 mile radius of Quail Valley/Menifee, southwest Riverside County. Hi, I'm Baby and I was rescued after my elderly owner was admitted into a mental care facility and there was no one to care for me and I was pound bound. I'm a beautiful dilute calico/tortoiseshell/tabby. My estimated date of birth is 2/7/08 and I weigh 12 pounds. I have been declawed on all four paws. I'm healthy and am spayed, vaccinated, dewormed and tested negative for feline leukemia virus. I'm a very sweet Baby! I'm gentle and love to be petted while sitting in your lap. I'm a great companion and I'm looking for a quiet home where I will be the only pet. Most cats/kittens are scared going to a new home with new people, but they all blossom in their own home. We never know how long it will take for them to become comfortable in their new home because all cats are different, some cats walk in and make themselves right at home, sometimes 2-3 days and sometimes weeks. $25 adoption fee, cash only, which is to help reimburse for a portion of expenses of cat rescue and rehabilitation. Local adoptions only; within 50 miles because we deliver animal to its new home. Our adoption process involves meeting the animal, either at Petco in Menifee on Saturdays from 10-2 or by appointment on other days at the rescue in Quail Valley. 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 or fit for the animal. 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 check (to make sure the home 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.
