Only the Lonely
It's Valentine's Day, and if you're looking for a love match we have a few lonely singles at the shelter! These cats aren't suited to life with other animals - but they'll love their humans with everything they are.
Meet your first match - Jinxie!
Jinxie's about 3 years old and has been at the shelter for a year. She came to the shelter after being tormented by the dogs in the house where she was living. She was a bit skinny and unpredictable, seemingly wanting head pats only to turn around and swat you. That habit hasn't changed but she has gained some weight (she was shaved down recently to combat the mats she developed because of her weight gain - she loves stealing the other cats' food! So she's currently sporting a lion cut though she's a shorthair). She loves attention but doesn't always have a sane way of asking for it - and she's a champion laser dot chaser! She needs understanding and space...preferably with access to a window and a comfy bed to bird watch from. No pets or children are a must!
Or how about this match - Morris!
Morris recently returned to the shelter after being adopted. They loved him - he slept in the bed with his humans, monitored their activities from the bathroom sink - he was a love. But he just couldn't leave their other cat and dog alone. He is on thyroid medication, and he isn't typically aggressive, but he does have what seems to be PTSD. His life before coming to the shelter a year and half ago is sketchy - he's not quite 7 years old yet but he has very little patience for other animals so no other pets in the hours is a must, and we recommend no children!
And then there's Mica....
Mica is a sweet guy who loves hugs. He's 10 years old and recently diagnosed with kidney disease. He requires a prescription diet, which makes it difficult for him to live with other cats. But he's an absolute love and will talk to and snuggle with everyone he sees. He's got years ahead of him still to love someone willing to care for him.
If you're interested in meeting these three eligible singles or other cats at our shelter, we're open to the public Noon to 3 pm Monday through Saturday. Our adoption process is outlined here, where you can also download and fill out an adoption application.
