Breed: Dilute Calico
Gracie is an approximately 2 year old muted Calico cat. She came into ARFâs care with kittens, who have long since been adopted. She has been in ARFâs care for some time, and she will require patient and committed adopters.
Gracie is a gentle, sweet girl, but she takes a long time to warm up to people, or even to spend time outside of hiding. She has been in her current foster home for about 4 months, and she is only now feeling comfortable enough to come upstairs for treats and occasionally join a family member on the bed.
She is quite smitten, however, with the resident cat, and would do well in a house that had a cat with whom she could bond. While she tolerates the resident dog, who is very cat-friendly, she would probably do best in a home without pets (other than cats). She is very treat motivated and has responded well to encouragement with treats. She does NOT like to be picked up, so getting Gracie to showings or to the vet can be a challenge. However, she will come to you for petting and enjoys a conversation every once in a while.
Gracie is spayed, up to date on vaccines, and microchipped. She would love to find a patient home to call her own. Might that be your family? To apply to adopt Gracie, click on the 'Adopt-Me' icon beside her photo at www.arfontario.com!
Things you should know about buying or adopting a pet
While pet sellers can be reputable individuals or breeders who treat their animals well, the ease of selling pets over the Internet also makes it attractive to careless, irresponsible breeders and scammers. To protect yourself, you must be careful and believe only what you see and not what you are told. It is highly recommended to arrange for an inspection of the home where the pets are bred. This allows you to check that the mother and other animals are living in suitable conditions, being well cared for, and are in good health.
Remember that the Kijiji Pets section is NOT intended to facilitate uncontrolled breeding, irresponsible commercial pet trading, trade of dogs or any other animal for the purpose of fighting or stud services. Any ads that are suspected of promoting this kind of activity or reported to us will be removed. Users are responsible for adhering to the applicable conditions in relation to adopting, buying, selling or listing of an ad on Kijiji.
Kijiji encourages, where possible, the adoption of pets and encourages all pet owners to have their animals spayed or neutered as well as microchipped.
When looking for a pet, it is important to meet the breeder or seller and examine the pet before agreeing to anything. Since Kijiji is local to your community, this should be easy to arrange. Never adopt/buy a pet from someone who is unwilling to let you see how and where the animal is living!
