Facts about Iris DeMent

  • Breed: Russian Blue
  • Color: Gray Or Blue
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
Looking for home in St. Louis, Missouri.

Iris DeMent is a sweet cat, shy with humans and passionately in love with any other cat. . Her story is one of bravery. She managed to raise her kittens in a rural feral colony -- despite the presence of a neighbor who shot at the cats, always threatening to kill them.

Thankfully, a kind woman intervened with a plan to get all the feral cats fixed. As we helped her with the spay/neuter project, we met Iris and determined that she has a lot of potential to be very happy indoors!

Iris shows her sweet side to us with purrs and rump raises. She even rolls on her side for a tummy rub. She is still very shy, but if you have the patience to help her feel safe, she will reward you with her trust.

Iris has mild asthma, and she is doing well with a very occasional antihistamine medication. She has not required any medication for around six months.

Iris should be adopted into a home with other cats because she loves them so much. Every time foster mama enters the room, Iris is cuddled with one or another of her foster brothers or sisters. She's the one cat who can entice every single other cat to play, and foster mama is frequently interrupted at her computer by Iris running back and forth with other cats, wrestling and chasing happily. She brings so much joy to the other cats!

Do you have room in your heart for a sweet, shy little cat who makes all the other cats smile? Iris would so love to meet you and your cats!

About Frisky Whiskers Network, Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

Frisky Whiskers Network, Inc. was founded in 2006. We are an all-volunteer, nonprofit cat rescue operating in the St. Louis, Missouri metropolitan area. We believe that every cat deserves a chance to have their own human family to know the love and security of a forever home...

Come Meet Our Pets...

We hold adoption events every weekend from 1-5 pm Saturday and 1-3 pm on Sundays at the Petco store in Kirkwood, Missouri. We also have a few cats who reside at the Petco Kirkwood during the week. (During holidays adoptions are done by appointment only)

To adopt a cat from Frisky Whiskers or to inquire about a particular cat, visit us at an adoption event, email us at, or call us at (636) 343-7106 or TEXT to:(314) 477-9038 & (314)780-3325.

Our Adoption Process...

We ask people fill out an adoption application, and we interview applicants. Our goal is to ensure a good fit between cat and humans. Once we have reviewed the application, we require you to complete an adoption contract.

We do not discriminate against anyone for reasons of race, religion, politics, gender, or sexual orientation, but we reserve the right to refuse an adoption based on information we gain during the application process. We try very hard to match our cats' needs and requirements with applicants' lifestyles and circumstances. Our goal is to make every adoption a happy and lasting one!

Our adoption fees cover vet care for emergencies and medical issues in addition to routine care. Before adoption, all animals receive the following care: spay/neuter, vaccinations for FVCRP & rabies, test for felv/fiv, microchip, and treatment for fleas/parasites.

Adoption fees are as follows: 1) senior cats $95, 2) cats 1-7 $125, and 3) under one year $150. We do not intend to imply that senior cats are less valuable; rather, this fee schedule reflects the fact that senior cats tend to come to us already spayed and neutered.
