Meet ZCL-C-Bowie

This is a courtesy listing and is not affiliated with Desoto Animal Rescue Society.   Bowie (after David Bowie) just celebrated his 1st birthday. He was rescued at 6 weeks old from a Taco Bell dumpster and has been fostered with the same family since August 2022. The family has trouble letting him go because he's so sweet and the kids love him, but he needs his forever home!   His foster family got a new puppy and he has not acclimated to her as they hoped he would. She wants to play with him too much and he is a lounger and prefers calm animals. His foster family has a Great Dane that he snuggles with, but their Golden Doodle gives him a little anxiety. He will  do best in homes with calm animals or no other animals.    He likes attention, pets, cuddling on the couch and in the bed, and sitting on the counter tops while his foster family cooks meals in the kitchen. He loves kids.   He does well when he has to be alone but he does best in a home where he is loved on often   He has been cared for by a vet but is not neutered. He was last given flea medicine on August 18th. He is curious about the outdoors but prefers inside. He has not had interaction with other cats but has observed them.   Please reach out to his Foster Family—  via text at 601-912-2332!  

Adoption Process
We are not a shelter with a facility where you can visit our pets. All rescued pets live in our own homes, where they are evaluated and cared for until they find their ideal adoptive family. We do our best to to make the best match for pet and new family. We carefully screen prospective homes and require all applicants to go through an adoption application process. Everyone who wishes to adopt an animal must fill out a pre-adoption survey. Once it is approved, we will review the contract with you to ensure that the animal will be cared for appropriately. Standard Donations for adoptions are $125 for Dogs and $75 for Cats. Donations cover up to date shots, spay/neuter, heart worm screening and treatment, feline AIDS and leukemia tests and other veterinary care.

Look for other cats for adoption!
