Facts about Miss Priss

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Black (Mostly)
  • Age: Senior
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
Hello, my friends, I go by the moniker of Miss Priss, although I really don't feel that I deserve this silly name --- I don't have an ugly librarian bun nor spectacles perched precariously on my petite nose. I'm an older kitty . . . but I'm not a wimp! I've got pretty black and white fur that I keep in good condition by my careful grooming. I believe some folks call me a "Tuxedo" cat which makes me sound like I have a formal personality but I don't think I do. Dignified is the word I would choose to describe myself, you see, I don't roll around like a slug whenever a human approaches me.

I'm in a cage which means that you have to choose to come visit me, not the other way around. I prefer to have someone open my cage door quietly and talk to me in soft, calming tones before letting me sniff their fingers, which is always the polite way to meet a cat. Please don't be put off by my slightly reserved manner but coming to a shelter when you're a grand, more mature lady-kitty, was rather overwhelming at first. So many noises and scents and silly cats coming over to disrupt my beauty sleep! Sharing a home with an intelligent and loving human(s?) is what I'm really all about. I do like attention but I'm not demanding of constant admiration. Just a little now and then would be fine with me. Oh, I forgot to mention that my front paws been declawed so I won't shred your legs for some random love and affection. I also eat a special diet, but that's no big deal at all. The staff can tell you about it and set your mind at ease.

Just send me one of your loving gazes and softly spoken compliments while I'm relaxing in the sun in your thoughtfully purchased fluffy purple cat bed, where I can watch the birds and squirrels outside your living room window! That's my idea of heaven, isn't it yours, too?


About MaxFund No-Kill Animal Shelter

About Our Shelter...

The MaxFund is a non-profit organization that was established in May of 1988 to provide medical care for injured pets with no known owners, and to seek out new homes for these animals once they have recovered. The MaxFund is a no-kill dog and cat shelter. MaxFund assists hundreds of people and animals each year by trying to make the correct match between owner and pet. MaxFund adopts our animals to Colorado residents only.

The MaxFund is a TRUE no-kill shelter. There is no pre-sorting of animals into "adoptable" and "non-adoptable" categories, discarding the so-called "unadoptable." The MaxFund takes every animal it has the space for. EVERY animal is kept until its owner is found or it is placed in a new adoptive home.

Our Adoption Process...

Adoption fees:

Cats: $25
Kittens (under 12 months): $75
Dogs: $125
Puppies (under 6 months) $200
Dogs over 8 years: $75

All applicants will be asked to submit the names and phone numbers of 3 personal references (relatives don't count), the name and phone number of your veterinarian if you have one, the name and phone number of your landlord (if applicable) and information about your current living situation. We also require that all immediate family members meet the animal prior to adoption to ensure compatibility. We would hate to adopt an animal into a family and later find out the dog doesn't like the kids or the husband doesn't like the animal, etc. You can print out an application on our website at

If you are interested in adopting a dog and have filled out an application, MaxFund will ask you to bring any currently owned dogs to the shelter for a “meet-and-greet” to ensure they can stand each other before they become a family. Because we examine adoption applications carefully and contact all references, same-day adoptions are extremely rare and should not be expected!
