Remember, Adopt...Don't shop! Today we would like to feature a cat currently living with the wonderful people of R-Cats. We've got a cuddly kitty looking for a new home.

At R-Cats, you'll find the very adoptable, Lazarus. His name reflects the fact that he was found along the side of the road near death. Thanks to his R-Cats foster mom he is a healthy and happy cat today. Laz is a young male adult cat, neutered and up to date on his shots and micro-chipped so he never gets lost again. He is very affectionate and gets along with everybody. He lives with other cats and a dog and is very mellow and easy-going. To find out how you can be part of the next chapters in Lazarus' lives, please call 790-1404 or email
