Posted 8/19/14, and pictures taken 8/6/14. Heather was trapped at an elderly woman's home in Jacksonville on 6/17/14, and delivered 4 babies overnight before she was to be spayed. The elderly woman already has 15 to 18 adult cats and two litters of kittens. We kept Heather and her kittens in our isolation room after they were born for privacy, and she has since been spayed. She has the shape of a Siamese, but is Black, and there were two Siamese and a Snowshoe at the house. I believe this is her first litter. She was a feral cat, but her hormones turned her into a cat that just wanted to be pet all the time. Now that some time has passed after being spayed, she is back to being skittish, so she needs a home that knows how to work with her, and will be patient. She would need to start out in a small room like a bathroom, so a person can sit down with her without her being able to hide. A long handled brush can be used, as well as catnip, and small amounts of can food to help the bonding process. She runs from me, but once I have her in a certain spot where she can't run anymore, she will let me pet her, even though she hisses at me. She can be around older children, but I would not put her around small children, unless she becomes very affectionate, which can happen once someone can spend the time with her that is needed.

Our adoption contracts prohibit declawing of any kittens or cats, it is cruel, can traumatize the pet, and make the pet defenseless if the pet should get outside. We encourage people to search for kittens and cats already declawed that need to find a new home.
$70 adoption fee will pay for her spay and vaccinations.
