An adotable cat in Duluth, GA
Two beautiful sister baby kittens, trapped outside during winter 2011 with their mom (Mosaic, see sep. listing) under a porch next door, now all grown up & still awaiting adoption. The smaller one is an eye-catching bengal/tabby mix with spots like mom, named Rosetta. The other, a larger girl, is a gorgeous pastel tortie, smoke blue & peach, named Russia b/c at a distance, we initially thought she was a Russian blue! They socialized very quickly, are eating well, and have boxtrained, but they are still quite shy about handling by anyone except their foster parents. Best seen by appointment rather than at in-store adoptions.. INDOOR HOME ONLY. $95 each or $165 for pair together.
Spayed., boxtrained, tested negative for FIV/Leukemia, vaccinated, dewormed, deflea'd, microchipped, ready for a quiet home.

In order to avoid exposure to and becoming infected with fatal viruses FIV or Feline Leukemia, and not get stolen, run over, poisoned, drowned, or eaten by predators, cats are expected to live INDOORS with their owners and WILL BE CONFISCATED if seen outside when an adoption representative visits your home.
While we will have declawed cats available from time to time for adoptions, WE DO NOT PERMIT declawing because it means AMPUTATION of the first knuckle/bone of each finger. This not only is cruel but can lead to huge behavioral problems (increased biting, avoiding the litterbox because it's painful to dig, increased marking, etc.). We recognize this doesn't occur 100% of the time, but does with sufficient frequency to underlie numerous owner give-ups and we will not make an exception. It also nearly guarantees the pet's death if it ever gets outside without its vital defenses. The animal WILL be checked post-adoption to see that its claws are still present. You are welcome to return the pet if clawing/destructive behavior becomes a severe problem, but usually a sufficiently exercised cat with appropriate scratching surfaces provided & a little training will settle in. Be sure to allow time to play every day with your cat--a lonely cat will be destructive.
