Feline Rescue is an all volunteer, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based in northern Sonoma County where there is a high percentage of economically disadvantaged residents. Pet cats, often not spayed or neutered, are abandoned with alarming frequency due, in growing part, to the declining economy and skyrocketing foreclosures and evictions. We also have a burgeoning number of "roaming" feral or semi-feral cats, also not spayed or neutered.Featured Cat of the Week!
There are absolutely no institutional services available for cats in need in our area. There is no local shelter, no contract with Sonoma County for cats, and no local city services for injured or ill cats. We are a "shelter without walls" and "animal control with a heart," operating with a tiny budget and no paid staff or administrative overhead.
Simon (aka "Buddy")
DOB(Approx.): 4 yrs. old
Breed Mix: DSH Bi-color "Tuxedo"
Neutered, vaccinated, complete vet exam
Simon began life as an orphaned kitten, wandering around a neighborhood, seeking shelter and food. A gentleman named Chris took in Simon and gave him a home. Unfortunately, Chris recently moved to Egypt to care for his elderly mother, leaving Simon in the care of a relative in Windsor. We offered to help find Simon (and his best buddy Garfunkel) a home, hopefully together.
Simon is a handsome Tuxedo boy with a black "helmet," black patch on his nose and lots of white. Stunning! He's at a good weight...11.5 pounds.
The foster mom writes: "Simon is like a big brother to Garfunkel, and they definitely are a good match. Both of these cats are very smart, extremely well house trained (never have accidents outside of litter box), and indoor/sometimes outdoor cats. They are independent but also show a lot of affection. They can play well with other cats, but must be introduced and after a day or two, can be friends. They eat regular dry cat food and almost any type of wet food that has gravy.
"Simon is a wonderful combination of independence and affection. He's relaxed and can lie on you all day or amuse himself with toys or just watching the "view." He sometimes likes to sleep with you."
Note: While Garfunkel is this cat's stage name, he is also known as Buddy, Buds or Bubus.
It would be great to find a home where these two best buddies could stay together. It's not essential, but please consider it.
