Huge cat alert! Sherlock is a BIG Maine Coon and a BIG couch potato! He is extremely affectionate and wants nothing more than to be cuddling with his human. He is a lazy boy who spends most of his time lounging around, stretched out either on the couch or on the windowsill. He loves to be pet, and wants to be touching you all the times - if you stop petting him, he will gently take your hand and urge you to continue petting him. He seems to think about every task and decide whether or not it's worth the effort to move. He has super long hair and will need to be brushed VERY regularly to prevent him from matting. He gets along well with other cats and dogs who are calm and respectful of his personal space. He is a really unique cat with a great personality!
He is neutered, tested negative for FeLv/FIV/HW, is up to date on all vaccinations and litter box trained. If you are interested in adopting, please fill out a "Cat Adoption Application" at www.DelawarePetRescue.org/forms
Adoption fee is: $200
*Please note - due to COVID-19, we will not be able to do on-site meet and greets. Adoptive families can speak to the cats foster mom on the phone and do a meeting on Zoom or Facetime if desired to virtually meet the cat. All paperwork will be done online and adoption fees can be paid by Paypal or Venmo. You can pick your kitty up "curb side". Cats can be returned with a full refund for up to one week. *
DPR cats receive the following medical care prior to adoption:
Initial vet visit
Spay or neuter (if cat is 6 months or older)
Rabies vaccination (if cat is 6 months or older)
SNAP testing for FIV, Leukemia and heart worm
Broad spectrum dewormers
Monthly flea/tick preventative
Ear mite preventative
The above is standard for ALL cats in our care. But many cats we rescue also require some additional TLC prior to adoption, such as antibiotics, eye ointments, wound care, fungal treatment, x-rays, or various surgeries. We are an all-volunteer 501(c)3 charity. The adoption fee helps to offset our standard and non-standard vet bills.
