Facts about Shnookums

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Gray Or Blue (Mostly)
  • Age: Senior
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 9794340
  • Hair: Short

Snookums, currently one of our oldest ladies here at approximately 10+ years young, came to us when her pervious guardian became too ill to care for her. Snookums is currently on a special diet to control an over active thyroid but that doesn’t seem to slow her down at all. She spends her time as an office cat supervising the day to day activities here, meeting new people, and occasionally trying out a new catnip mouse. She is very laid back lady and is not fond of other cats or young children. Respectful dogs and older children who are not very noisy would are okay with her as long as they do not disturb her or pick her up too often. She is a fan of being petted, sitting on laps, and soft cat treats. If Snookums seems like your missing piece, please some visit her.

Our Adoption Process...

When you see an animal in our kennel or cattery that you are interested in, we will ask that you complete some paperwork (our "Adoption Application"). This paperwork must be completed first in order to minimize stress for you and the animals. Our process includes asking questions: asking for veterinary references-particularly when you have other animals at home. This is simply to protect the health of adoption candidates and the pets you already have.

You will have a counseling session with one of our knowledgeable staff members who will fill you in on the history and needs of that animal, and his feeding and exercise requirements. You can ask your counselor any questions about spaying or neutering, housetraining, obedience training, scratching (in cats), veterinary care, how to deal with fleas and ticks, and anything else you can think of.

If you are approved to adopt, you will be asked to sign an adoption contract and pay an adoption fee. This fee covers spaying or neutering, and the veterinary care, deworming and vaccines your pet has received at the shelter.
