New year new home: Jaunita from RescueCats

See also

Every day there are thousands of homeless pets in shelters in metro Atlanta who all have the same wish - a forever home. They are dreaming of waking up in a home where they are loved and cherished and are a member of the family. As we start the new year and throughout the month of January, I will be featuring pets from local shelters and rescue groups who want nothing more than their very own human and a warm place to sleep at night.

Today’s featured pet is Jaunita from RescueCats. Jaunita is a three and a half year old orange tabby domestic short hair kitty. Here is more about Jaunita from the Bill Crockett, Assistant Adoption Coordinator for RescueCats:

Jaunita is a very beautiful girl with great classic tabby markings. She is shy and seems fearful when you first go to pet her, but once you start, she absolutely loves it. She has never tried to swat or bite, but recoils like she is afraid you are going to hit her. She may have been abused at one point before we got her. She is very well behaved and never causes any trouble. With her own quiet home, she will probably make a great addition. She came to us from another rescue with her five kittens in November of 2012. We also still have three of her kids, Jemma, Julie, and Josh.

Bill also says that Jaunita has a cute way of showing that she wants wet food – she stands on her hind legs and puts her front paws together and paws at the door – begging for food. Click here to see the video of a number of cats from RescueCats featuring Jaunita in the opening frames begging for her supper.

Jaunita’s adoption fee has been reduced from $110 to $70 thanks to a special donor. If you adopt Jaunita you will also get a bag of goodies, a coupon for free food, litter coupons and other kitty accessories.

About RescueCats (from the website)

RescueCats is a nonprofit, state-licensed, no-kill group dedicated to rescuing owner released and homeless kittens and cats. To prevent pet overpopulation, we have all kittens and cats spayed or neutered, and we provide a safe and loving shelter until stable, loving homes can be found. We work very hard to be a role model for other groups and educate the public about the necessity of spaying and neutering and proper care of animals. More than 7,000 animals have been saved by RescueCats.
