My husband, Richard, and I adopted Spot after the death of our cat Charlie who was 17.We renamed him Sherman.
I'm a volunteer at the shelter so I've known Sherman for over a year. He was a bit shy when he first got to our home. He knew me which made it easier for him to adjust. He spent his first few days under the bed. His favorite place to be now is in the bed. Not on the bed, but in the bed. He loves to play peak-a-boo under the sheets. It can take half an hour to make the bed with him playing.
It didn't take him long to become a great lap cat. No matter where we sit he is in one of our laps PURRING away. He loves watching the ball games with Richard.
MATURE CATS We refuse to call these cats 'seniors'. After all, some of them are only 7 years young. They are just mature in the ways of the world -- people, places, and events. The stories they could tell you. We want these 'experienced' cats to find the forever homes they deserve as soon as possible. Our Adoption Counselors will help match you to your best possible mature soul mate.
Mature Adoption Fee
A mature cat, aged 7 or older, can be adopted for $45. That is a tremendous bargain because each is spayed or neutered, micro-chipped, dewormed, and is current on all vaccinations and flea medication. All cats have been extensively socialized by our volunteers who play, pet, and pamper these cats on a daily basis.
But wait . . . more good news! If you yourself happen to be mature and looking for a cat companion, we have a Matures for MaturesProgram. If you are 65 years old or more, you can adopt one of our mature cats for only $40.
Please watch our selection of mature cats.
If one of our cats has been at our Adoption Center for over a year -- regardless of age -- then he/she is a longtimer. That means the kitty is way overdue for its forever home.
For some reason, these cats just can't catch a break. They have been passed over time and again and our hearts are breaking for them. Some of them are beautiful, many are young (just over one year), and all of them are wonderfully sweet! Sometimes they get discouraged about ever finding their special human and forever home. But we do our best to keep up their spirits with extra playtime and petting.
Longtimer Adoption Fee
You can provide a forever home for a longtimer for just $45. They also have been spayed or neutered, micro-chipped, dewormed, and are current on all vaccinations and flea medication. Like all our cats, our longtimers are extensively socialized by our volunteers.
Please watch our selection of longtimers (under construction).
