Paiger is special needs. Local adoptions only--within a 50 mile radius of Quail Valley/Menifee, southwest Riverside County. Paiger was abandoned along with several other cats when the owner boarded them at a kennel while she was supposedly moving and never came back for them. Paiger's date of birth is 7/1/11 and he weighs about 10 lb. He has been neutered, vaccinated, dewormed and tested negative for feline leukemia virus. Paiger is special needs with inflammatory digestive tract that requires special food. He is desperately looking for a foster or permanent home where he will be given the love, attention and special food he needs. At the rescue he has to be confined so he does not eat the other cats food which will make him have runny stools/diarrhea. We were told Paiger is Siamese/Persian Mix, but all we know for sure is that he is a beautiful, exquisite-looking black cat. In ancient Egypt and in Great Britain today people think black cats bring good luck. Black cats are the best. They are beautiful, smart, lovable and loyal. Sadly, these beautiful cats are the last to find homes and the first to be destroyed in shelters. Paiger would love to have a home of his own. He's is gentle, easygoing and likes to sit in your lap to be petted and brushed. Paiger is afraid of strangers, which makes it difficult to show him to people who are interested in him. If given a chance, we know he will be a delightful, loving companion in his own home. He will just need time to get to know you and trust you. He gets along well with other cats and dogs. 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. 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). We prescreen potential adopters before setting up a meeting, therefore, 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 at Petsmart in Lake Elsinore on Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and by appointment. Address of Petsmart in Lake Elsinore is 29227 Central Avenue (off the 15 freeway at Central Avenue in the shopping center in front of Lowe's and near Costco). 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.
