Here are three rescue cats that just happen to be at the top of Rocky Mountain Feline Rescue’s (RMFR) Flickr page. I did not select them with care. They were just there and I thought, “these cats are beautiful”. For a moment, I am putting aside the fact that all cats are equally beautiful. I am looking at rescue cats as competition for pedigree cats. A lot of people select cats on appearance. Well, on that criterion, these cats are stiff competition to pedigree cats.
Zoey: Glossy black coat. Strong attractive face. Bright yellow contrasting eyes. She has her claws too! No one declawed her. Character as described by RMFR: “a very sweet girl who loves getting attention”. She is a lap cat too and likes to talk a bit. Perfect. Her story: Her owners lost their home and had to move to an apartment where cats are banned. I don’t want to be cynical and please forgive me if I am wrong but that is a common excuse. I don’t want to set a standard that is too high but can’t people find a place where cats are accepted when they move? Zoey is estimated to be about 4 years old.
Pearl Duncan: I don’t have any information about her. I am sure it is because she has been adopted. She is a glamor puss. Long fur. Grey with a dash of brown, tabby and white coat. Plumed tail. Beautiful blue eyes. Charming looking, pretty cat. She’d beat a pedigree cat anytime.
Remy: Sharp alert face. Red tabby and white coat. Deep copper eyes to match. He is about a year old and “good with cats”. He’ll fit in nicely. Not declawed. Great.
