About Frankie

Frankie has a resilience and zeal for life that will capture your heart. She is so much more than her origin story but to understand where she is today, we have to acknowledge how far she has come. Frankie was shot with a pellet gun and some of the pellet fragments were lodged into her spine. Despite great efforts and surgery, Frankie remains semi-paralyzed in her back legs. She is undergoing daily physical therapy to stimulate her muscles, which she enjoys and cooperates with, especially if treats are involved.  Despite her therapy, it is likely she will never walk normally again. This does not slow Frankie down in the least! Wind up a toy and watch Frankie go go go! She zips around with the zoomies like any cat, and chases toys and shadows like a pro. Frankie likes to join her foster Mom on the couch or climb up into her cat tree. Nothing stops this adventurer! Except maybe bedtime with her person, she loves to share the bed or couch.    Caring for Frankie requires some experience with cats. She will need to continue her low-level physical therapy routine. Frankie can't totally control when she pees or poops. To prevent leakage and to avoid clean-up, her bladder is expressed three times a day. Any potential adopter will need to understand, learn and commit to properly caring for Frankie's needs while understanding they may change in the future. Frankie eats out of a slow feeder to help keep her weight at a healthy level.  Prior to adoption, all cats are spayed/neutered, tested for FIV/FELV, vaccinated and microchipped. This cat is currently in a foster home. To meet the cat, please fill out an adoption application so that we'll have your contact information, and we'll get back to you as soon as possible. Our adoption application is on our website here:  www.thedancingcat.org/adopt

The Dancing Cat is searching for a fospice (foster + hospice) home for a very special cat. Jonas, a five-year-old tabby, enjoys cuddling for hours on end and long walks to his food bowl. It may take Jonas a day or two to truly warm up to his humans, but once he does, he will not leave their side. He enjoys being no further than a few feet from his humans at all times, often following them throughout the house. Jonas is very caring and protective of his humans. If they decide to sleep in on a weekend, Jonas may wake them up to check that they’re okay. If they work for too long, Jonas may come get them and guide them to the couch. Jonas is not very playful, and toys don’t generally hold his attention for very long. If you are open to being the forever this boy deserves for as long as he has, please apply. Jonas has an inoperable tumor in his abdomen and his time here may be weeks, months or maybe even a year. He eats a prescription diet, is on prednisolone to slow the progression of the growth, and is very easy to care for. Please fill out our online adoption application and we'll set you up to meet him as soon as possible. www.thedancingcat.org/adopt We can contribute to Jonas's veterinary care through the end of his life.  Contact us for details or if you'd like to donate.  Prior to adoption, all cats/kittens are spayed/neutered, tested for FIV/FELV, vaccinated, dewormed, deflead, and microchipped. show less

A1190083Margie is a sweet but shy youthful torbie girl. Initially rescued from a colony as a teenager, she has been socialized in a multi-cat household and is now accustomed to tasty treats, soft beds and pets on the head. Margie is still shy and nervous around new people and experiences but loves head rubs and will even get ecstatic on occasion and ask for a tummy rub or two. But she will make you work hard for that privilege. She is not comfortable being picked up and still has concerns that the world might be out to her her, but she has made great progress in just a few months. She is not yet a lap cat, but if you are patient and willing to take things slow, she could get there. Margie is extremely playful, at only 10 months old she is still a kitten at heart but with the manners of a matron aunt. (Except when she gets her paws on a fuzzy mouse toy). She will play on her own, but also quite happy to leap after wand toys with you or chase after toys you throw for her. She won't bring them back, but she will happily run after them again once you go get them. Margie is also very treat motivated once she relaxes, hates to miss a meal, and will make sure you never have to be in the kitchen on your own. Her least favorite day is when the cleaning people come as they make lots of noise and move things around. When this happens, Margie will make herself a pillow fort and burrow into it until they are gone. Margie is not a beginner's cat, and will need someone who appreciates her shy sweet nature and can provide her with a calm, quiet household. She gets along great with the adult cat in residence in her foster home, and would probably like to have someone her size to play with. All our cats are spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccinations, microchipped, and tested for FIV/FeLV.  To meet Margie, please start by filling out our application on our website here:  www.thedancingcat.org/adopt show less
