HARRY, Los Angeles, CA (April 13, 2014)
Harry is an adorable red and white boy that has unfortunately been passed from home to home. About eight years old, he is very in-your-face and affectionate. He needs to be an only pet as he can get possessive of his humans. He will swat other cats that try to get close to his person. He'll also nip at his person if he/she doesn't pet him as much as he craves. We think he'd do great with people that understand his needs and can give him the attention and boundaries he deserves.
He is in general good health as a skin issue has cleared up now that he is eating a better diet. He has excellent litter box habits. Cornish Rex Friends will pay for a vet check for him as well as agreed-upon, pre-approved follow-up care.
We'd prefer a foster-to-adopt with Harry. Our fosters work closely with us to evaluate cats' personalities, health, preferences and habits. Cornish Rex Friends pays pre-approved vet costs and can also provide a stipend for supplies if needed. If he is a great match, the foster has first option to adopt him.
First priority will be given to those applicants within driving distance. We would not rule out an adopter further away provided they could travel to within fifty miles of Los Angeles and pick him up. Please contact Lisa for more information.
ADOPTED!! GG aka Gracie, San Diego, CA (April 6, 2014)
GG is an adorable spayed female that loves to purr and cuddle. Her family decided to rehome her as they are having another human child and she wasn't going to get the attention she needs.
She is approximately twelve and is in good health for her age. She has had a full blood and urine workup and will be getting her teeth cleaned next week. We feel she'd due well with another laid-back cat or extremely cat-friendly dog.
First priority will be given to those applicants within driving distance. We would not rule out an adopter further away provided they could travel to San Diego and pick her them up. Please contact Lisa for more information.
ADOPTED!! YASHI & WIGGLY, San Diego, CA (March 26, 2014)
Yashi and Wiggly are related boys that are about eight years old. Both are neutered, have all their claws and are in general good health. They are playful, active, curious and affectionate.
Yashi, the gold-eyed white,is basically like a puppy and will follow you everywhere. If you go to the bathroom, he wants to go too. He's a licker and will bathe you for hours if you let him. He loves everybody! If he met a coyote, he would want to groom him and the coyote would be like, "Why did this cat just put itself in my mouth?"
Wiggly, the black and white, is one of those cats that starts purring if you get within five feet of him. Sometimes if you pet Yashi, Wiggly will purr on his behalf. Wiggly is slightly more cautious than Yashi. With new people, Wiggly will like to observe at a distance for an hour or so, but once he decides you are okay, he's ultra affectionate.
They have lived with other cats and dogs after a proper introduction. They also have done well with children.
We'd prefer a foster-to-adopt with Yashi and Wiggly. Our fosters work closely with us to evaluate cats' personalities, health, preferences and habits. Cornish Rex Friends pays pre-approved vet costs and can also provide a stipend for supplies if needed. If the cats are a great match, the foster has first option to adopt them.
First priority will be given to those applicants within driving distance. We would not rule out an adopter further away provided they could travel to San Diego and pick him them up. Please contact Lisa for more information.
