Mikie was abused by the owners of the 7-Eleven near my house.​ The owners had two men manhandle her, put her in a cage and drove her 50 miles away. She was able escape and walked 50 miles all the back to the 7-Eleven. So, I wanted to get her out of that situation and took her in.

Four-year-old female, spayed, follows you everywhere once she trusts you and knows you are nice. She likes to sleep on the bed with you at the head of the bed or the foot. After a year with her, she wants to get on my lap.

She likes the screened back porch. I check on her for I don’t want to leave her out there too long due to the heat. She runs and hides when someone comes in the house, then when they leave she will come out of hiding. She likes to sit on the stool at the window and look outside. Very sweet once she trusts you.

My environment here is no screaming and yelling, no kids trying to chase her and no men. Very calm and quiet environment.

About Cat's Cradle of the Shenandoah Valley

About Our Rescue Group...

Founded in 1998, Cat’s Cradle seeks to end euthanasia of healthy adoptable cats and dogs in Shenandoah Valley through aggressive spay/neuter of owned animals and TNR (trap/neuter/release) of feral cats.

We also have a network of foster parents and an active adoption program for cats. In 2009 we opened an adoption center in Harrisonburg. We do not euthanize for space.

Please visit our website at: for more information.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We show our cats at PetSmart in Springfield, VA on most 1st and 3rd Saturdays, at the PetSmart in Harrisonburg, VA on some Saturdays and some Sunday afternoons, and at the Petsmart in Waynesboro on Saturdays. We also show cats at our adoption center at 124 S Main St. in Harrisonburg 11-6 M-F, and 11-5 Sat and 11-4 Sunday.

Please visit our website: for other adoption events and hours for showings or call the adoption center at 540-433-1135.

Our Adoption Process...

Please see our website: for a copy of our adoption application and adoption contract. Adoption fees vary, but generally run around $135.

All our cats are spayed or neutered before adoption, and fully vetted. We have an adoption center in Harrisonburg, but we also make extensive use of foster homes until adoption.

We generally prefer indoor only homes, and our contract specifies that the cat(s) will not be de-clawed.

We have some cats that cannot be adopted into an indoor situation. For these, we seek safe barn or out-building locations.
