Hi Delaware,

Anyone interested in adopting a 2 year old declawed reversed calico? She is a sweet cat and I need to come to a decsion due to family problems and find her another home.
Her name is smokey

I would hate to drop her off at he SPCA or a shelter and wonder what they would do? I just can't do this.

She is spade and up to date with shots.

I'm Hoping by posting this, there may be some good results. It is breaking my heart but something I must do.

So please, If you wish to give an animal a good home......contact me in post or DM

EM

Picture below. Smokey is the little one

Wish we could. We just recently adopted a 2 year old boy from Faithful Friends, a wonderful no-kill shelter in Wilmington.

Doctorjef.....

Is this really a no kill shelter? I understood the no kill shelter can't guarantee the animal will not be put down due to funds and lack of help.

2 years ago I tried to help my neighbor find homes for kittens....called all over and the no kill shelter in Wilmington was one.
They explained no guarantees due to lack of funds and not enough help.

Sadly our young boy Chuck was adopted to assuage our grief over losing our beloved cat Max to cancer, as well as to provide feline company for our big stick-in-the-mud 14 year old called CT. We reckoned CT needed to have another cat around, especially during times we're away somewhere, even though we knew that CT wouldn't initially take well to a new cat. Overt hostilities have now ceased and we don't want to rock the boat. If we could reasonably do so, we'd have a lot more cats but it just isn't practical.

Let me check with DH when I get home. We have been feeding a few "strays" since our Lola died. How is Smokey with dogs? And yes, as far as I know, Faithful Friends and DHA are no-kill shelters. Our Darcy came from DHA and I donate to both.

I know and understand Doctorjef. Our hearts are always in the right place but we must be realistic.
We weren't we took this this one. At the time she was an adorable 5 week old kitten who was irrestistable.

If you can't find a good home, you could also contact Paws For Life, Inc. | Rescued Dogs for Adoption in MD, DE, and PA.
that's were we got our dog from - they keep all their animals until they get adopted or die. and, if you need to return the cat/dog for any reason (like my neighbor's dog, who is older and started peeing everywhere) they will ALWAYS take it back !

our cats are in/outdoor cats, would be cruel, to let a declawed cat join in

Not sure how smokey would be with dogs. We had another cat my daughter took because smokey ( our brat) was attacking her. That is after her kitten stage.
She is really sweet with people but very jealous of other animals and needs all the attention. I figured she should go with someone who only has one other animal or none.
Dont' think she would be good with a lot.
