TASHA, BRACKEN, LILY & DAPHNE, Portland, OR (May 2, 2013)
Cornish Rex Friends has four Cornish Rex available in Portland, OR. Lily and Daphne are a bonded pair. Tasha and Braken can be adopted together or separately.
Daphne and Lily are solid white sisters, born in July, 2010. These almost three year olds are to go as a pair. They are really sweet, gentle cats.
Daphne is deaf but that does not hold her back. Both are spayed, have all their claws and are in general good health. They have excellent litterbox habits. We feel they'd do best in a home with older children or all adults.
Bracken is a red neutered male that will be turning eight later this month. He is extremely sweet and loving. He has all his claws and is in general good health. He has excellent litterbox habits.
Tasha is a special needs cat whom isn't quite two years old. She is a petite girl that is missing one eye. This does not slow her down. Like the others, she is exceedingly sweet and gentle. She'll need some extra attention to set up the optimal litter box situation for her. She consistently urinates in her current litter box but her aim can be erratic when defecating. She repeatedly goes in the same spot so it looks to be a workable issue.
First priority will be given to those applicants within driving distance. We are open to considering long term fosters with option to adopt. During that time Cornish Rex Friends would cover pre-approved veterinary care and work with the foster to evaluate the cat's health and personality. If the cat is a perfect match, the foster would get first priority to adopt.
VANILLA & CARAMEL, Romney, WV (April 2, 2013)
Vanilla and Caramel are 11 year old neutered males. Vanilla is the red tabby and white, Caramel is the red tabby. Their person is no longer able to care for them due to her health. They are a bonded pair so must be adopted together.
Caramel is very outgoing and affectionate. He loves to meet everybody and is "Mr. Personality". He's very playful, especially when the laser pointer is on. Vanilla is a bit more reserved. Both boys are big cuddlers and like to snuggle under the covers with their humans.
Caramel is in good health for his age, outside of an allergy to fish. Vanilla has some health concerns, namely a heart murmur and vesicular issues. He coughs daily from his heart condition. He is not on daily medication, but is helped with occasional supplements. The both have good litterbox habits.
First priority will be given to those applicants within driving distance. We will also consider long term fosters with option to adopt. If you are interested in learning more about them please submit an application or email us.
To be added to our general interest list for future rescues, submit an adoption application.
