Are you a cat whisperer?  Do you have the patience for an apprehensive, uneasy and a bit anxious cat?  Mia really wants to be your friend, but she takes quite a bit of time to get used to you and then she will be totally bonded to you.  She adores attention from me now and has a medium purr.  She does so much better as an only cat, so I'd like to adopt her to a home without other pets.

Mia has had two previous homes (before coming to Companion Connection) in her 9 years and as each caretaker got up in their senior years they felt they could not care for her.  Sadly, somewhere along the line, she was declawed and as is often the result, she developed arthritis in her toes and back.  So sometimes, rarely, she may not use the litter box.  But it has been months since she missed the box.  We got her to lose some weight and gave her light pain medicine for a while. 

She is in her own room now at the sanctuary and is loving it!  Her loving personality has come out and she reaches out for loving. 

Mia really is a lover and absolutely enjoys having her head and neck brushed or stroked.  Once she has bonded with you, she will keep you company, sleep with you and be your loyal companion.  But please note:  she cannot be an outdoor kitty due to being declawed. 

Mia has been tested for the leukemia and FIV viruses as well as heartworms and is negative for all.  She did have a bladder infection in the past and therefore, the veterinarian recommends that she remain on a reduced calorie urinary food.  This is not any more expensive than any other quality food we would recommend for our adopted cats.

Mia will bond with you, but it will take time.  She needs a patient person, a relatively quiet environment and a lot of love and time.  Is that you?  Have you got a place in your heart for a special girl?

About Companion Connection

About Our Rescue Group...

We are an Elgin based rescue group made up of volunteers that strives to help reduce the number of loving companion animals that die each day in local shelters due to lack of space and lack of a suitable home.
Currently, there is a three-room sanctuary for cats that has protected outside access for our feline friends. And there is a large, fenced kennel for the dogs with a large fenced play area. Because of the limited space, we cannot take in every animal that comes our way, but we do everything we can to get the animal off the street and into a shelter (if not our own) or foster care. We strive to improve the lives of abused, abandoned and neglected companion animals.
Companion Connection promotes spay and neuter programs as well as the Trap-Neuter-Return program as the only humane method of effectively reducing the feral cat population.
The majority of our companion animals are rescues. They have been saved from abandonment, neglect or abuse. Therefore, many have “special needs” ranging from emotional—needing extra time to get to know you—to dietary needs. Our animals are free to roam about their shelter areas rather than being caged. It is a different type of environment than the typical shelter so the animals are happier and therefore, healthy.
Companion Connection is committed to ensuring humane care and treatment of all animals, protecting the public health and welfare of the citizens of Bastrop County, through education and enforcement of State laws and local orders and showing respect and compassion to all. We promote spay and neuter programs as well as the Trap-Neuter-Return program as the only humane method of effectively reducing the feral cat population.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Animals can be visited at the shelter in Elgin, TX with appointments. Adoption events are usually on Sunday afternoons at PetSmart on IH35 and Parmer.

Our Adoption Process...

Companion Connection has their adoption application on the website, or can be emailed or faxed. Once the application has been reviewed and references checked, a home visit is conducted to ensure the potential adopter's home is ready for the dog or cat being adopted: food area, sleep area; safe environment, fencing, etc. Fees vary for dogs ($50-75) determined by age and/or size and cats are around $40.
