Facts about Amber

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Orange Or Red Tabby
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
AMBER is a dilute-orange short-haired female about five years old. She is very friendly and likes people and doesn’t mind being picked up and cuddled. She has an unusual skin condition called eosinophilic granuloma complex, not contagious, probably caused by stress and an overactive immune system. This requires a fairly inexpensive medication periodically. We give them to her when she has a flare-up. Her new family needs to be willing to provide that as needed.

She was originally in a room with about 20 other cats – this made her very cranky and probably made the skin problem worse. She was moved to a smaller room with only a few other cats to deal with. Her skin and fur are just fine now, and the red places are gone – the result of the prednisolone and a more stress-free environment.

Amber is apparently not a big fan of other cats. She would prefer to be the only cat in her home, or to live with one or two mild-mannered cats that she can get to know and become comfortable with. She has become mellower now, however, and gets along fine with the other cats in her room. She even has a boyfriend, sort of.

Amber really likes people and would be great company. She would probably be amenable to lap-cat duty. She has a great appetite and especially loves fish, but eats whatever is offered. Amber would probably need a quiet, stable, mature home with no stress. If this describes your surroundings, then come on over and meet this pretty little sweetheart. She's a nice cat and would love for you to visit her. We're happy to answer any questions too.

About Milford Humane Society

About Our Shelter...

The Milford Humane Society is an all-volunteer, non-profit, no-kill shelter for stray and abandoned cats. First organized in September 1990 to fill a need in the community, we help to care and find homes for the ever-increasing number of homeless cats that exist in the local area. These cats survive by scrounging in dumpsters for food and finding shelter wherever possible.

Most of our cats are housed at the shelter. Others are cared for in foster homes until space becomes available at the shelter. Admission to the shelter is not based solely on adoptability but on need. The motto of the Milford Humane Society is to share the gift of unconditional love with as many cats and kittens as possible.

Our Adoption Process...

All cats and kittens are spayed or neutered, have tested negative for FelV and FIV (unless otherwise noted), have distemper and rabies shots, and are microchipped prior to being adopted.

Certain requirements must be met to adopt a cat, such as the cats must be kept indoors, and never de-clawed. Potential adopters must provide their landlord's written permission to have cats on their property. There is an adoption fee.
