Description:
What do you do when you are 12 years old and somehow it is decided that you can no longer stay at home with your owner. To be taken from your home, your bed, your owners lap and taken to Animal Control like a unwanted box of old clothes. How do you feel instead of the warmth of a humans lap you are put in a steel cage and all you can do is wait. How can you shut out the barking of the dogs and the cries of the other cats as all there are as lonely and confused as you are. Other cats are taken from there, the kittens, the pretty ones, the friendly ones but you are old. Your eyes a little dim and your personality still there but hiding behind fear and confusion. And even though you think this is the end of your life the director of Animal Control has noticed your sweet ladylike ways and has made a call to Catsnap. And they came. And a new life begins. They gave you a name instead of a number. They named you Gertie. Because age is nothing but a number. Thank you for your interest in a Catsnap cat or kitten! If you would like to meet a cat, please complete the online application located on our website catsnap.org. We do not have a walk-in facility; most of our cats are in foster homes. For this reason, we require an approved application on file before we set up a meet and greet. Completing an online application does not obligate you to adopt! We care deeply about our cats and want the best match for all involved. Vaccination against Panleukopenia (Distemper), Rhinotracheitis, and Calicivirus [cats]  Vaccination against Rabies (if animal is over 4 months of age) Testing for Feline Leukemia (FeLV) and Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) [cats]  Initial de-worming, flea, and ear mite treatment Sterilization of the animal prior to adoption; no exceptions Micro-chipping as mandated by state law

FindpetTM is a Participating Pet Recovery Service Registry for the AAHA Universal Pet Microchip Lookup Tool. AAHA provides an internet-based application that enables veterinarians, humane organizations, pet owners or other persons to search various Pet Recovery Service registries and identify those registries on which a particular microchip is registered. AAHA is not affiliated or involved with any specific microchip registry and has no relationship, financial or otherwise, with this Participating Pet Recovery Service Registry ("Registry"). This Registry has given AAHA permission to search the Registry's database in order to assist pet owners in being reunited with their pets. AAHA does not maintain a database of microchips of its own. It only links to registries such as this one. The AAHA Universal Microchip Lookup Tool only searches the databases of companies that elect to participate in the program.
