We are very excited to announce that the Rutherford County Animal Shelter, along with various shelters and rescues around NC have received a special shipment of kittens and cats from the renowned Doctor Oscar Lebensteinenski of the Romanian Feline Institute in Targu Neamt Romania (this is in the Carpathian mountain range).

His team has done ground breaking work on the coming Zombie Apocalypse. These cats & kittens have been trained under a top secret Romanian government project called F.A.S.T. or Feline Alert System Technology. FAST cats are able to repel Zombies. The good Dr. Lebensteinenski has been able to link a common vaccine and genetically alter the kittens so that as long as they are vaccinated for Rabies, Zombies will never come near your home. They secrete a pheromone that repels the Zombies and is very pleasant and calming to humans when the kitten is held by its owner.

All kittens come with a money-back guarantee. If a Zombie ever invades your home, we will refund your adoption fee completely.

Rutherford County Animal Shelter has various breeds of cats and kittens, of all makes and models. They will be available starting October 14th through 31st. Because of the high demand for FAST Cats, it will be first come first serve. Prepare now for the coming Zombie Apocalypse! Be part of the solution and not part of the problem. Don’t get eaten
