GaDaH has received our second batch of saved kitties from Kabul, Afghanistan working with a veterinarian and rescue in KABUL, Afghanistan to help save some of their abundance of stray and abused animals.
BARBIE was flown into Washington DC, with 12 other kitties on 16th March and driven another 17 hours up to the rescue in Sebec, Maine.
Barbie is spayed, rabies, feline panleukopenia, herpesviral and caliciviral infection, dewormed, monthly preventatives, microchipped, weighs around 8.8 pounds and has an estimated date of birth of 1 January 2018.
BARBIE was adopted on 29 July 2021, however, was returned on 15 September due to her not getting along with the families other cat. It is recommended she go to a family where she is the only cat!
BARBIE has been at the rescue now for several months and her personality is shining through. She is a vocal cat that likes to talk and tell you all about her day. She reminds me of a chihuahua in that she buries herself under the covers and snuggles amongst pillows. She is extremely affectionate and loves to be stroked and cuddle up close.
Considering the ordeal that these kitties have endured they have adapted into great companions. Whilst here at the rescue they have been kept indoors, however, I do believe that they had been mostly outdoor in Afghanistan, as they do act like they want to go outside, however, individual families will have to make that decision on their home and living environment and if need be, build or purchase a cat condo to give the cats the best of both worlds.
BARBIE is available for an adoption fee of $100.
This fee is not negotiable. Canadian adopters need to know that customs charge 15% taxes when entering into Canada.
Due to borders being closed, it is up to families to call the US and Canadian borders to find the current details on border crossing. Animal Welfare is deemed essential in the US, but quarantine rules entering back into Canada must be followed. We have had families being allowed to travel since Animal Welfare is deemed essential in the US, however, of course following quarantine rules must be followed when returning to Canada.
If you feel that you have the heart and home to give this precious soul a wonderful life, please go to our website, under the ADOPTION INFO tab, complete, then submit the APPLICATION. Our process takes around 1-3 days, and ensuring your references are aware that we will be calling, could speed up the process.
