Mercedes and her siblings came into rescue because their Momma Cat was abandoned and became pregnant in a feral cat colony in Sacramento. Momma Cat, being the resourceful girl that she is, and knowing she wasn’t safe outside, begged her way past the front door of a nearby apartment and promptly had kittens on the couch. It was too much for the kind, young man who had opened his door to a frightened stray. He contacted me through a mutual friend, and Momma and 6 babies came into rescue on Father’s Day. With some help from her foster mom, Momma Cat raised her 6 babies, plus 3 more that came into rescue 10 days later. (Momma Cat has since been spayed and is happily back with the man who let her in the front door!)
Beautiful Mercedes (Mercy) is a social butterfly! She is sweet and always happy and loves to play with her siblings as well as her people. She spends a good bit of her time schmoozing the people in the room and the rest running and playing hard.
Mercedes was born on June 18th, has tested negative for Leukemia Virus, and will be ready for her forever home by mid- to late- September. She is well-rounded socially, having been raised in a home with adult cats and a Labrador.
If you are looking for two, Mercedes would be happy with any of his siblings or foster siblings!
NOTE: We prefer families with children bring them to the adoption appointment. Why? This allows interaction between the children and the cat. This helps ensure they will be a good fit for each other. A mismatch between a child and a cat is not in anyone’s best interest!
