Facts about Lavender

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Senior
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 2016109
  • Hair: Short
Lavender may be a pretty flower, but she feels she has the authority to make an executive decision that YOU should to come and adopt her pronto! Lavender came to OAR after being at a local kill shelter where her odds of being adopted were rather slim. She has a much higher chance of finding her forever home at OAR where potential adopters can come and have a quiet meet-n-greet in a happier environment. Lavender is still adjusting to all the changes that have come her way recently. She hasn’t been able to tell us how she ended up in a kill shelter, but it doesn’t matter now, as that is in the past. Lavender has a rather unusual colored fur coat, is a little on the reserved side, but does enjoy your petting and making over her, though might walk away when she has had enough. She also sort of twirls her purr, which is rather endearing. At first Lavender seemed a little fussy with the other kitties in her room, but perhaps that is just an adjustment period. Lately, she has been doing much better around other cats. Want a new BFF? Lavender is delightful, just a tad on the timid side. With kindness, love, and coaching, that all could change.

Female/DSH/Dilute Tortie.
DOB: ~3/6/08.
Spayed/House-Trained/Up-to-Date on Vaccinations.
Probably okay with other cats if there is a slow introduction.
Doesn’t like dogs...

Our Adoption Process...

We have many cats and kittens looking for wonderful homes! All of our cats are spayed/neutered, up-to-date on vaccinations, tested for FIV and Feline Leukemia, and microchipped. Adoption fee is $50. Because we like for our cats to go home in pairs, we have a standing 2 for 1 adoption special -- you can adopt 2 cats for one fee of $50.

Meet some of our cats and kittens, and fill out an application today! An OAR representative will get in touch with you to discuss your application. We do require a phone screening before an adoption so if you are coming to visit the cats and hope to take a cat or kitten home that day, fill out and submit the application at least a day beforehand so we can pre-approve your adoption.

As of 3/7/12, our adoption policy requires that the adopters of our cats not declaw the cats, no matter what the cat's age. We will, with our adoption counselors' help, provide potential adopters with information on alternatives to declawing. We also sometimes have previously declawed cats up for adoption. These can be a good alternative for adopters who are adamant about declawing.
