Female Domestic Short Hair Cat

Queenie is so named because of her regal posture. She looks like the head lioness of her pride! She is also a very smoochy cat and loves headbutting you and being stroked. Her colour is a mottled dark grey/brown but when you part her coat, underneath is silvery; so unusual. Her coat will possibly become longer in the winter.
Queenie was part of the 3 mothers and multiple kittens we picked up together and she has now finished with her mothering, been spayed and is ready for the rest of her life with her forever person or family. She's spent the last few months recuperating on a very high quality diet and getting a lot of love, safe inside with the other cats.
She learned to tolerate her adult cat housemates but it did take a while before she stopped growling at them. She didn't mind the 2 cat-friendly dogs in the house at all. She would be happy to be the only pet or to share, especially if it was with her daughter also listed - Stella, who is almost her twin in looks. If you want a bonded pair then these are your girls.
Both Stella and Queenie come with a little added bonus: 2 days free boarding at Happy Cats Cattery in Carabooda with any stay of 7 days or over.
For her safety and your own peace of mind Queenie must be an indoor-only cat, although a secure cat enclosure would be a wonderful bonus for her. But an enriched household (with cat towers, scratchers & plenty of toys), some good window seats & views of outside perhaps with a screen door or window to look through & sniff the breeze, and lots of attention from her humans should be adequate.
Located in Carabooda.
Stella is very healthy, being fed the most nourishing diet available to make her develop to her fullest potential. She has been microchipped, sterilised and had both vaccinations. No vet visit for you until 2019!
When you see the picture, read the profile & think "This is the one!" I want to hear from you! Please message me with your email address so I can send you an application form. Although it's important for these adoptees to find their forever homes asap, there will be an informal interview process to see if you both match. This is the difference between adopting & buying and it serves the really important purpose of keeping you together for life. All family members will be included in the adoption process. Everyone counts.
1. Message me.
2. I send you an Application form via email.
3. I will phone you.
4. Meet & greet.
5. 2 week (or more) trial adoption.
6. You have a new family member!
The adoption fee shown on each listing mainly covers the cost of the vetwork needed before adoption & it allows rescue continuity. It is seriously much cheaper to adopt from a rescue than to get a "Free to good home" & organise all the vetwork yourself.
Once it's been decided that you will trial your possible family member, you will complete the adoption form, pay the fee & take him/her home to see for sure that the fit is right. The settling in process can take some time or it may be almost instant. If after a while (around 2 weeks) it becomes apparant that the chemistry just isn't there, the animal can be returned for a full refund. Please be aware that this is not a failure for either you or the adoptee. It simply didn't work & there is no blame.
If the adoption goes ahead but some unforseen circumstance rises in the future, near or far, where you must be separated, your pet MUST be returned to PRAAS; not rehomed by yourself. We have rescued that animal & we need to know that he/she is safe for the rest of its life. It may be that you have a wonderful next home to move them to, in which case please let us know.
If the animal is returned to us at this later stage there is no refund.
