There are hundreds of animals hoping to find loving homes in Beijing. If you are considering adopting a pet, Doggy/Moggy of the Week will feature animals from volunteer shelters, animal rescue groups, foster care providers, and pet owners needing to rehome animals. This week’s moggies, Frisky, Whitey, and Lioness, are from ICVS’ Adoptable Pets.
Names: Mom Frisky, and daughters Whitey and Lioness.
Sex and Age: Frisky the mother is about 4 years old. Both Whitey and Lioness are about 3 years old. All of the cats are female.
Personalities: Frisky is a laid back cat, always down for sleeping on your lap. Her favorite thing is to be scratched along her spine, from the base of her neck all the way down to the base of her tail – she gets so into it that she actually goes cross-eyed! She is very friendly and calm around strangers, but generally not a very active cat. She’s a little chubby as a result, but the roundness really adds to her adorableness. Frisky is very close with Whitey so if possible I prefer for them to be re-homed together.
Whitey is a bit shy so she will likely take some time adjusting to her new home before she feels comfortable enough to approach you. Once she gets used to you she is extremely sweet. She is also a cuddly, lap loving cat, and loves to spend time with her mom. If Frisky is purring, Whitey will usually trot over to purr along with her! Whitey is much more active than Frisky and enjoys playing with toys. As mentioned above, Whitey and Frisky are very close, so if possible I prefer for them to be re-homed together.
Lioness is Whitey’s littermate, and was the smallest cat of the litter, so she is adorably tiny – almost like an oversized kitten. She is more independent and is not a cuddly cat.
She is the most curious and active of the three – she plays very enthusiastically, and is a very graceful and athletic cat. She is also bold, as she will be eagerly investigating new people and animals after she’s had a few minutes to get used to them. Because she is so independent and confident, she is okay to be re-homed by herself.
Ideal Homes: These cats would be most comfortable living with single individuals, couples or households with mature children (e.g., 15-years and older).
Medical notes: All of these 3 cats are strictly indoor cats. They are healthy and have been spayed, are fully vaccinated and have their official Beijing Animal Health and Immunity Certificates (vaccination red books) from ICVS. Their vaccination red books will be transferred to their new adoption families.
Post-adoption care: The International Center for Veterinary Services (ICVS) has enrolled Frisky, Lioness and Whitey into their Rescued/Stray/Re-homed Pet Adoption Benefits Program. ICVS will provide their new families with significant discounts (up to 50 percent) on health examinations and vaccinations during the first year with their new adoption families.
Official Vaccination Certificate: All of these cats have been issued the official Beijing Animal Health and Immunity Certificate (e.g., vaccination red book) from ICVS! Pets need this official vaccination red book to prove they have been legally and properly rabies vaccinated. The official vaccination red book is required for pets to move to other cities in China or to leave China with their families.
