Facts about Diesel

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Brown Tabby
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
Diesel has a very distinctive purr, like an ebony and white tabby Kenworth T370 idling out back of Shoemakers. What is this lady's story? How many people have come and gone from her life to make her the jealous, green-eyed beauty that she is now? Step into her room and sit down. She will regard you with suspicion. Soon, though, her curiosity will get the best of her, and she'll jump into your lap. "I love you," she'll say. "Let's play. You must never leave." Sadly, though, in the real world, people leave. Diesel will grab you will her clawless forepaws and, failing that, perhaps gently with her teeth until you remind her of her manners. "You mustn't leave," she'll say. "Let's play." Due to her jealous nature, Diesel will do best as an only pet in an all adult household. Eventually, someone will stay long enough in her life that she'll feel secure that they'll be there when she wakes up. Many people have passed through Diesel's life like trucks passing in the night. Maybe you'll be the one who finally pulls over and stops.

About The Cat House

About Our Shelter...

The Cat House is a non-profit, no-kill shelter in Lincoln, Nebraska. We are a limited admission feline-only shelter. We began operations in 1998 to provide an alternative to traditional shelters. We only euthanize for pain and suffering, never to make space for more adoptable cats. We are an all-volunteer group. We exist entirely on adoption fees and donations. If you would like to adopt a cat, please see information about our process at If you would like to donate to help with our expenses, you may do so by credit card via Pay Pal on our website or send a check to our address. Local volunteers are always needed and welcomed. If you would like to volunteer, please fill out an application on our website.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our adoption center is open Tuesday and Thursday from 6-8 p.m. and Sunday from 1:30 - 4:00. We are located at 3633 "O" Street, Lincoln Nebraska. If you're interested in adopting, please see information about our adoption process, and a link to an adoption application, here:

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption process, including a link to the application form, is described here: All cats and kittens have been spayed or neutered, tested for feline leukemia virus and FIV, microchipped, and are up-to-date on rabies and RCP ("distemper") vaccinations. To help facilitate adoptions we adopt only within a 200 radius from of Lincoln Nebraska and we cannot ship cats.
