 . Bart .  . Bart .  . Bart .
  • Domestic Short Hair-black and white
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
Bart is a neutered male, domestic short-haired, black and white, large adult cat of 15 pounds. He turned 7 years old in April 2015. Bart is one of our rescue's "long-timers" as he has been in his foster home since he was a 10-week-old kitten. Bart is a strikingly handsome cat with his "tuxedo" markings of white whiskers, toes, neck and belly, but he's not very cooperative for photo opportunities, so his pictures don't do him justice. He is called "Hershey" in his foster home since he has 3 white triangular patches on his neck and belly that are in the shape of foil-wrapped Hershey Kisses. Bart is a cat who lacks confidence and will often go into hiding when visitors come to his foster home. Therefore he is overlooked and doesn't get noticed, so will need a person who is patient in allowing Bart to approach on his terms. Bart is OK with the lab mix dog in his foster home but is easily intimidated by other adult male cats. Bart is best paired with a cat younger than 6 months, or with an older, submissive female cat. Once he is comfortable with other cats, Bart will sleep next to and help groom them. Initially Bart is a bit scared of new foster kittens brought into the home, but then once he feels his hierarchy status isn't threatened by the little ones, Bart is soon wrestling and chasing kittens. Bart is FIV and feline leukemia negative, up-to-date on vaccinations and is microchipped

  • Domestic Short Hair-gray
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
Czar is a domestic shorthaired, gray male kitten who is neutered. He was born in early August 2016. Czar was initially thought to resemble the Russian Blue breed, and his name "Czar" was chosen for the first Russian emperor. Now that Czar is older, he more closely resembles a British shorthair with a dense, plush coat, round head,and the characteristic "smile" of that breed, so maybe a name from British royalty is more appropriate. Czar is healthy, active, affectionate and absolutely adorable. He quickly adapted to the other cats in his foster home and to the lab mix dog. Czar is up to date on his vaccinations for distemper, feline leukemia and rabies. Adopt A Pet has a policy that kittens not go to homes with children under the age of 5 years for the safety of the kittens. Czar is negative for feline leukemia (FeLV) and feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) and has had his first feline distemper vaccination, a feline leukemia vaccination and a rabies vaccination. He is litter box trained. Czar loves to play with his pal Fireball, another Adopt A Pet kitten available for adoption,and then is ready for snuggling on your lap or shoulder when it is nap time.

  • Domestic Short Hair
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
Daniel is an approximately 10-year-old (in 2014), domestic short-haired, orange-and- white tabby cat. He is a hefty, handsome guy who is extremely affectionate and still playful for his age. However, his favorite activity is nap time if the electric blanket is turned on. Daniel has recently been transferred from another foster home where he was called "Diego". Daniel likes to be in the same room as you and loves attention. He adapts well to other cats, although kittens are too high energy. Daniel prefers a home without young children and likes to snuggle up for pets with his people. He can be insistent on getting his food kibble, even though his bowl is not empty. He hasn't met the dog in the house, but the barking does not seem to bother him. Daniel is feline leukemia and FIV negative and up to date on vaccinations. He is a gentle, friendly cat with many years of companionship left.

  • Tabby - Orange, Domestic Long Hair
  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Special Needs
Fireball is a neutered male, longhaired orange tabby whose estimated date of birth is the first week of June 2016. Fireball was transferred to our rescue from the Marshmallow Foundation of Detroit Lakes, MN on October 1, 2016, in very rough shape. He was taken immediately to the Red River Animal Emergency Clinic in Fargo. While he tested negative for both feline leukemia virus (FeLV) and feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV), he was severely underweight and suffered from a number of medical problems. Fireball required extensive veterinary care, medications, and a lot of TLC. These photos were taken Nov. 19, 2016, at the Fargo Petco, and you can see Fireball has come a long way. However, Fireball was diagnosed with persistent pupillary membrane (a birth defect) in his right eye by a veterinary ophthalmologist. Fireball has opacity in his right cornea and squints a bit with his right eye, and he may have some vision loss in his right eye. The ophthalmologist said that Fireball did not need to have his right eye removed and that the eye was not painful. Fireball is living up to his name and is a feisty, boisterous, rotund ball of fur. Fireball almost resembles a butterball turkey with his big belly on short little legs. He weighed 5.4 pounds on Nov. 21, 2016, when he was neutered and microchipped. He is current on his vaccinations for feline distemper, feline leukemia, and rabies. Fireball enjoys wrestling and playing with Czar, another Adopt-A-Pet kitten available for adoption, but they do not need to be adopted together.

 . Misty .
  • Domestic Short Hair - brown, Tabby - Brown
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
Misty is a short-haired, brown/white female tabby. She was approximately 5 months old in mid-August 2016. Misty was rescued with two siblings in a local trailer park. Her brother Blaze was first named Misty until it was determined that Blaze was a boy. Initially, Misty was scared of living indoors, but she soon realized that shelter, food, water and care are constant in her foster home. Now she enjoys playing with cat toys and her siblings. It took a few weeks before Misty adapted to the other foster cats in the foster home and to the lab mix dog. Misty does like to snuggle up to older cats and get groomed and nurtured by them. Misty is the most timid of the trailer trio, and she is still a work in progress in becoming a more confident kitty. She has not been around young children. Misty is negative for feline leukemia and FIV and current on feline distemper and rabies vaccinations. She is litter box trained and microchipped. For their safety, it is Adopt-A-Pet's policy that kittens not share a home with children under the age of 5. Kittens do best when adopted with another kitten or cat who can keep them company or in a home that already has a cat.

 . Solstice .  . Solstice .  . Solstice .
  • Domestic Short Hair-black and white
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
Solstice is a mostly white, domestic short-haired, neutered adult male cat. He and his brother, Sundance, were born in a Fargo-area pound on the summer solstice in June 2012. He will turn 2 years old in June 2014 and weighs a little over 9 pounds. Solstice resembles his mother "Summer" in coloring and markings. He is primarily white with a black tail and two black spots on his head over his ears. Solstice is an affectionate cat with a big personality who enjoys laps and getting belly rubs. He is an outgoing cat who can be a pest to the dog in his foster home and can be a bit of a bully to the less-dominant female cats in his foster home. Solstice and his brother, Sundance, can get pretty rough and tumble in their play, and they both play very hard with their mom, Summer. Solstice will also play fetch like his brother, but he prefers a small, rubber bouncy ball over a fabric, catnip-filled ball. Solstice will leap after the bouncy ball and try to catch it with his front paws. His retrieval and return aren't consistent, but he has brought the bouncy ball back and will drop it on the floor in your general vicinity. Solstice also enjoys chasing the red laser light dot. Solstice is FIV and feline leukemia negative, up to date on vaccinations and microchipped.

  • Domestic Short Hair-black and white
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
Sundance is a black and white, domestic short-haired, neutered adult male cat. He and his brother "Solstice" were born in a Fargo area pound on the summer solstice in June 2012. He will turn 2 years old in June 2014 and weighs a little over 9 pounds. Sundance has a long, lean body and an extremely long tail. Sundance has become a more confident cat and will bring a cat-nipped filled, plush ball to play fetch. Sundance needs to initiate the game and is good for about 5 tosses. He has adjusted to the dog in his foster home. Sundance enjoys rough-and-tumble wrestling matches with his brother Solstice, and enjoys chasing the red laser light dot. Sundance is more of a "leaner" than a lap cat, as he likes to lean against your leg if you are sitting up in bed or lounging on the couch. He can be fairly vocal when he wants his food. Sundance is FIV and feline leukemia negative, up-to-date on vaccinations and microchipped.

  • Domestic Short Hair-black
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
Vida is estimated 2-3 years old, petite and an all-black beauty. She is spayed, up-to-date on vaccinations and FeLV and FIV negative. Vida loves to talk and interact with her humans. Vida needs to be in the "know" about everything in the home. She is outgoing, assertive and intelligent. She can give love nips when she is too excited from playing. (Never has actually caused harm). Vida is very clean, no issues with the litterbox and sheds very little. She was abandoned pregnant, gave birth to 5 kittens and was a wonderful mother. Now it's Vida's turn to find her forever home. She is fine with other cats, she likes to be the alpha. Dogs are fine with proper introduction. No declawing in adoption agreement. (Vida is a "courtesy cat." Courtesy cats are listed to assist their owners; they are not in Adopt-A-Pet foster homes and are not Adopt-A-Pet cats.)
