About Shakira

Adopted by Sue

Purebreds Plus Cat Rescue is helping facilitate the adoption of this cat through our Owner Placement Program.  We take no responsibility for the health and medical records of this cat.  It is the responsibility of the owner and adopter to discuss this.

Shakira is NOT in a Purebreds Plus Cat Rescue foster home, but residing with her current owner in Sacramento. Adoption fee applies. Find out more about Owner Placement Cats.

Shakira’s owner sadly passed at the beginning of January 2022.  Her owner’s family was in Sacramento from another state to manage the family’s affairs.  They reached out to us here at Purebreds Cat Rescue to help place lovely purebred Shakira and her purebred Bengal companion Tiger in homes where they will receive the loving attention and care they have known their whole lives. We are happy to report that 17-year-old Tiger has been adopted. Shakira is currently with a foster waiting for her forever person.  She is accustomed to living with a cat-friendly Husky and is good with visiting children ages  2, 6, and 10 years old. Shakira is a little skittish around the toddler.  She is also not well accepted by her current foster’s Bengal, so we think she may do best as any only-cat. 

Shakira is shy and cautious around strangers being hesitant at first in new situations, but once she gets comfortable she is a very affectionate sweet girl. She is talkative and enjoys ‘conversations’ with her people. She loves to be petted. Like many Bengals, she prefers to not be picked up. She is very playful and enjoys her cat condo/scratch house and toys.  She needs to be where she will receive more interactive enrichment playtime, attention, and loving affection.

We think a Bengal-experienced person who can provide a fun, loving, caring quiet home, where someone is present the majority of the time, would be just right for Shakira.

Bengals are wonderful companion cats, they often bond with their people and love them like no other. Shakira is ready and waiting for that new person in her life.

Shakira is spayed, vaccinated, FELV tested, eats wet food, and is litterbox perfect.

She currently lives with her foster in Sacramento.

Purebreds Plus Cat Rescue is dedicated to matching exceptional cats with qualified adopters who will cherish their pet and create an ideal forever home.

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 interests!
