You could say that every summer is a “Summer of Love” for cats. Kittens are everywhere! And that means the shelter is full-to-bursting with adorable kitties that need people just like you. We’re going to make that happen.
Starting on Sunday and lasting until the end of the month, we’re holding a waived fee adoption special on cats 6 months and older. This only applies to cats in the shelter (not those at our external adoption sites, like Petco and Petsmart). And notice that age business: There are no kittens in this special. Standard adoption procedures apply.
Adult cats have so much to offer. They come to you trained in the ways of cat, and their personalities are formed, so you don’t have to guess about how they’ll behave as adults. You’ll know!
Let me tell you just a little bit about some of the cats involved in this special.
Sweet Cat Jasper
I’ve told you about 4-year-old Jasper before. I’m a little shocked that someone hasn’t scooped up this adorable Siamese boy quite yet.
He’s very relaxed in the shelter, as you can see. But he watches the door of his suite very carefully, as he hopes someone will walk in and take him home very soon.
Jasper came in as a stray, and he had surgery to help ease a painful eye condition. He has a bit of vision limitations in one eye, but they don’t seem to bother him very much. He has lovely manners with gentle cats, and he is known for sharing his food and beds like a champ. He might like to move into a home with other cats. We’re not sure how he feels about dogs.
I imagine he’ll move quickly with the special pricing. If you’re interested in him, better come soon!
Special Cat Biscuit
Next up is 8-year-old Biscuit. He has a bit of a sad backstory, but he doesn’t want your pity. He’d love a home.
This pretty guy has low vision in his left eye, and you’ll notice that his right eye is missing. He was living as a stray cat, and someone made the decision to shoot him in the right eye. We treated him and removed that eye, and he has been recuperating with a foster family.
They tell me Biscuit is a very trusting and kind cat, despite his injuries. He gets around the house fine despite his low eyesight, although he’d probably appreciate a family that doesn’t rearrange the furniture often. He can co-exist nicely with calm kitties, although he would like a slow introduction to them.
We all love this guy, but he doesn’t appreciate shelter life. Can you help him?
Darling Cat Tom
Next up is bicolor cat 2-year-old Tom. He is a very handsome little guy that finds cameras a little intimidating. He won’t enjoy life as a blog cat, but he has a bright outlook as a lap kitty!
Tom came to us as a stray cat, so we’re not very sure about what he’s accustomed to. But we do know that he seems to appreciate the company of other cats. He seeks them out when he feels unsure, and he likes to groom other kitties in his spare time. What a sweetie!
Since Tom can be a little shy, he’d appreciate a calm and quiet home. He’d probably like to enter your home in stages, starting with his own room and building from there. Can you make that happen for him?
Volunteer Favorite Cat Merlin
Black cat lovers: You must come to meet 5-year-old Merlin. He’s a peach!
Merlin has won the hearts and minds of our volunteers and staff. He is a very friendly and bold little kitty that gives some of the strongest head butts I’ve ever experienced. He’ll almost knock you over!
Merlin is also a wonderful shy cat mentor. He runs to help other kitties that seem low and worried, and he’ll purr to comfort them. It’s absolutely the cutest thing ever, and it makes this guy very special.
Merlin has a strong lap-cat history, and his last family tells us he needs no time to warm up. He even loves strangers!
Beautiful Cat Stanley
This 7-year-old guy is the recipient of Merlin’s help. His name is Stanley, and he’s a pretty Russian Blue sweetie. Look at his gorgeous face!
Stanley was left behind when his family moved away, and his finder told us a lot about what he’s used to. He has lived with many other cats, and he did well with them. He has done well with dogs, including dogs in the community.
He is a little shy in the shelter, but he does love attention and affection. You’ll just need to keep fast movements and loud noises to a minimum to keep him happy.
This is just a sample of the cats we have ready to meet you, and all of the kitties I showed you are part of this waived adoption fee special. If they touch your heart, I encourage you to come before Sunday to take them home. We expect them to go fast! And if you don’t see a kitty you love, know that we have many more that would love to meet you. Come see them!
