Meet Zima

Zima is a sleek and soft kitty in my foster care. Zima will follow you anywhere. She will be right in front of or behind you when you head off to the kitchen or bathroom as she prefers to hangout with you in whatever room you are in. While she is not a lap cat and does not enjoy being picked up, as each day that goes by with her in my home, I have noticed Zima get more and more comfortable with being petted and touched. Zima has never once hissed, swatted or bitten anyone, no matter what was going on. If she doesn't like what you are doing, she simply walks away. She also doesn't hide under beds or furniture, never to be seen. Every now and then, she will sleep with me on my bed. She is good with other cats and would probably do best with another young cat or kitten who still likes to play! Our cats are old and grumpy and do not care to play with sociable little Zima. Zima. My opinion is she will do well with older kids (5 and up) and very probably with dogs

too, once she has had time to adjust to a new home. Zima has never had any problems with her diet or with using a litterbox. She has a very funny meow - it’s more like “eh, meh, meh” and makes little trilling noises too. Any potential home needs to allow for her to be able to look out at least one window. She loves to watch the outside world. And if you have a spider or fly in the house- no problem!! Zima is an excellent hunter and will get those pesky critters. I really can’t say enough about Zima, she is a wonderful cat and if I didn't already have two permanent cats, I would totally keep her. I recommend meeting her in person as her photos and this paragraph simply do not do her charming personality justice.

Zima is still available for adoption but might have other applicants. Learn more about our pet adoption process.

All pets adopted from A.R.F.-Animal Rescue Foundation include the following as part of their adoption fee:

  • Spay/neuter or a certificate for a low-cost spay/neuter when medically recommended
  • Microchip and registration, a permanent identification to reunite lost pets with their owners
  • Initial de-worming and flea and tick treatment
  • Age-appropriate testing for heartworm/FIV-FELV
  • Age-appropriate vaccines
  • Pre-adoption medical exam
  • A certificate for a free healthy pet exam at one of A.R.F.’s participating veterinarians within 7 days of adoption
  • Offer for a no-risk 30 day free trial with Trupanion pet medical insurance

If a cat or dog is on our website, it is still available for adoption but might have other applicants. If you find yourself interested in one of our animals, submit a no-commitment application immediately. Submitting an application does not commit you to any animal, but does get you a head start with the adoption approval process. Due to a high volume of applications, we are often unable to respond to questions until your application has been approved in approximately 3-5 business days.

We do not schedule meetings until you have an approved application.

A.R.F.-Animal Rescue Foundation does not have a facility where applicants can visit our animals.  The majority of our dogs and cats are brought to adoption events by our volunteers. We invite everyone to come to our events, but we give priority to pre-approved applicants.

If you’re invited to meet an animal:

  • Plan to arrive on time (or early), as we cannot hold animals for any reason.
  • All human household members and dogs (if adopting another dog), must be present in order to be considered as a potential adopter.

Thank you for your interest and cooperation!
