Facts about William

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Gray Or Blue
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 8913244
  • Hair: Short

William is an adult, neutered male cat, born 2013.  He is a bit shy and retiring, not afraid of people, just hesitant about how he will be received.  Once he knows someone likes him, he comes out of his shell and likes to be petted and talked to.  He's quite thin and we suspect he hasn't had an easy life for quite awhile, so he is focused on getting his strength back and taking lots of naps.  William is quiet and well-mannered, he lets the other cats intimidate him a little, but as he gets used to the shelter, he'll start talking back to them.

We'd like to find William a home where he can be king of the castle, or with some other really nice cats that will make him feel welcome.

Update: William was getting a little stressed out with all the other cats around him and not eating, so he's gone to live with a wonderful foster home where he can have just one cat friend to get used to.  if you would like to meet him, please give us a call at 701-356-7877.

About Cat's Cradle Shelter, Inc.

About Our Shelter...

Cat’s Cradle Shelter, Inc. is a non-profit, volunteer-run, no-kill shelter located in Fargo, ND. We opened on January 1, 2012. Our mission is to create a more humane and compassionate world, one cat at time. Cat’s Cradle is a colony-based shelter with 7 colony rooms and an isolation/medical room with seven private units (plus room for additional temporary units). We utilize foster homes for kittens less than 8 or 10 weeks old and for cats needing extra medical care or socialization/attention. Most of our residents are last-chance pound rescues. We typically have between 60 and 90 cats in care (it varies with need), and adopt 30-40 each month (hopefully more!). Cat’s Cradle is part of new, multi-disciplinary effort (three cooperating rescues, staff from three pounds, animal control officers, veterinarians, and community supporters) to reduce the number of adoptable cats being killed in area pounds.

Come Meet Our Pets...

9 9th Street South, Fargo, ND
Open houses Tuesdays 4-7pm and Saturdays 10am-4pm. If these times don't work for you, please call us at 701-356-7877 and we will arrange a private visit. Please be aware that there is usually at least a 24 hour delay between filling out an application and bringing a cat home, as we need time to check references.

Our Adoption Process...

Cat's Cradle requires an application, site visit, and interview. If a prospective adopter rents their home, we will call the landlord to confirm that pets are allowed on the property. Our adoption counselors will work hard to find the best match for the both family and the shelter cat. Our 2012 adoption fee is $109. This includes: intake health exam & FEL/FIV screening; 3 doses of roundworm de-wormer (and other parasite screening/treatment when necessary); age-appropriate vaccinations (rabies and distemper, including booster shots for kittens); spay or neuter surgery; microchip; and any other medical treatment recommended by the attending or consulting veterinarian(s) (for injury, illness, infection, etc). We allow a three week trial period to make sure that the cat and his/her new family are a good match, and if things don't work out...we always want our cats back! We prefer to adopt in our own area because A) we insist on meeting prospective families and B) we will not risk shipping our cats. We reserve the right to decline to adopt any cat into a situation that we feel will not meet his/her needs.
