Anna and Tommy were surrendered to our rescue over Easter weekend 2017. One of their owners passed away in April 2016, and the wife was recently hospitalized and is now residing in a nursing home facility. Both were scheduled to be euthanized unless an animal shelter or rescue group agreed to take the pair, as the couple had no adult children or friends to take in their two cats. Anna and Tommy's world has drastically changed, as they are no longer living in familiar surroundings with their humans that they have known their entire lives. They are now settling into their foster home and becoming more relaxed and affectionate. Anna was born in Nov. 2006 and Tommy was born in April 2007, so they are both senior cats that are 10 years old in April 2017. Both cats have had an extensive senior wellness exam with blood work and are current on vaccinations that include rabies, feline distemper and feline leukemia. Both cats tested negative for both feline leukemia and feline immunodeficiency virus. Tommy also had a urinalysis done which was mostly normal with one struvite crystal found. Their blood work results were both normal, with slightly elevated blood glucose (most likely from stress of vet clinic visit) and slightly low BUN (kidney enzyme). Both cats are very overweight and are on a moderate calorie, urinary health prescription diet (Royal Canin S/O). Both cats have some dental disease. with Anna being in more need of dental cleaning. We are looking for a new adoptive or foster home where Anna and Tommy can live together. They have been kept strictly indoors for 10 years, have not been around children or dogs, and ideally should go to a quieter home with no other pets. Tommy is the more outgoing and friendly cat of the pair whereas Anna is more cautious, but both enjoy pets and chin scratches.

  • Spayed/Neutered
Audi is a neutered male with medium-length hair who is buff in color. He was born on Aug. 23, 2016. Audi, his two siblings and his mother Topaz were transferred to our rescue from another rescue in north-central North Dakota. Audi is named after a high-performance race car as he and his sister have two speeds--off and overdrive. Audi is energetic, affectionate, playful and a very boisterous young boy. He likes to climb humans and perch on their shoulders where he can supervise the human activity. Audi is fascinated with running water--the flushing toilet, the shower, and washing dishes in the sink. He will put both paws in the water bowl when he drinks, and he has taken drinks with his paw like a raccoon. Audi has been dewormed, received three feline distemper and feline leukemia vaccinations, and his 1-year rabies vaccination. Audi had a sibling who tested positive for feline leukemia, but Audi has tested negative for feline leukemia at 8 weeks of age and again at 6 months of age.

  • 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

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.

Fireball is a neutered, long-haired, orange tabby whose estimated date of birth is June 2016. He came to Adopt A Pet in rough shape, weighing a mere 2 pounds 2 ounces at approximately 4 months old (the weight of a 2 month old kitten). Fireball required extensive vet care, medications and a lot of TLC. He has been diagnosed with persistent pupillary membrane (a birth defect) in his right eye. While he may have some vision loss, the ophthalmologist said that Fireball's right eye does not need to be removed and is not painful. Fireball is not on any oral medications or eye drops/ointment. Fireball is living up to his name and is a feisty, boisterous, rotund ball of fur. He is nicknamed "Fires" or "Fireman" in his foster home because of his tendency to run around the house as if he needs to put out a fire. Fireball has become a handsome cat and has a fantastically fluffy tail that he holds straight up in the air like a plume. Fireball has a pronounced neck ruff resembling a mane, and he has long tufts of fur between his toes. He is current on his vaccinations and is microchipped. Fireball enjoys wrestling and playing with the other young foster cats in his foster home and would best be paired with another active, young cat that can handle such roughhousing. Fireball gets along well with the lab-mix dog in his foster home, and they wrestle on occasion. Fireball is easily overstimulated in play and has a tendency to bite human ankles or hands when he wants attention; therefore, we don't recommend that Fireball go to a home with young children. Fireball's biting behavior is not encouraged in his foster home, and he is either ignored or redirected to a wand toy. The biting behavior is improving.

  • Spayed/Neutered
Misty is a shorthaired, brown/white tabby spayed cat who turned one year old in April 2017. Misty was rescued from a a local trailer park in July 2016. Initially, she was fearful of being inside a home and suspicious of humans, but she soon realized that shelter, food, water and care are constant in her foster home. Her favorite toy is the Da Bird wand toy, as that was the toy used to entice her out of hiding in the cat tree when she first arrived in her foster home. It took a few weeks before Misty adapted to the other cats in the foster home and to the lab mix dog. Misty likes to snuggle up to older cats and get groomed and nurtured by them. Misty is timid and still gaining confidence, so she would do best in a home with another cat. She has not been around young children. Misty is negative for feline leukemia and feline immunodeficiency virus,current on feline distemper and rabies vaccinations, and microchipped. She is litter box trained.

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.

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.

Topaz is a very petite kitty and looks a lot like her daughter, Porsche, in size and coloring. Topaz is a little nervous around dogs, especially if they are barking, and is a bit scared at Petco adoption events.
