Facts about Olive

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Brown Tabby
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: C0907
  • Hair: Short
Olive is a sweet, cuddly, affectionate girl, between 5-6 years old, who arrived as a stray. She is not a fan of other cats, but is tolerant of polite dogs. Olive has occasional bursts of playful, but is mostly a hang out on the couch (or on your lap) kind of girl. She has trouble jumping - the vet says she has abdominal scar tissue from some sort of prior trauma, which limits her jumping motion a bit, but she can go anywhere as long as she has no jumps of over about 2 feet! We have built her "staircases" around her shelter room, so she can get up to window perches and other higher spots.

Looking for someone to curl up with and read a book, or watch some sports on TV (golf is just about her speed), Olive is a great choice! One warning: when Olive is happy, she is a drooler. The vet checked her mouth out and there is no physical problem causing her to drool - she's just a "wet mouth" kitty!

Olive has impeccable litterbox habits, and is an easy keeper. She would be perfect in any sort of family, from a single young professional to a busy family with kids to a couple of retirees... she loves all the people she meets! She does run a little bit "super-sized" so should have a measured diet. Right now, she is missing some fur on her flanks and belly due to stress pulling - she is not enjoying being a shelter cat, and would be so grateful for you to bring her home so she can have more companionship and a family with which she can cuddle. We recommend she be an indoor cat (or train her to harness/leash for outside visits), due to her limited jumping ability.

All pets arrive spayed/neutered, dewormed, microchipped and vaccinated. Adoption fee for Olive is suggested minimum $40 (more gratefully accepted). All pets are placed with a 30-day money-back trial period, to give pet and family enough time to discover any unknown allergies or other conflicts. Can't come to Republic? Don't let that stop you! We have monthly transports to both the Seattle area and Spokane, delivering adopted pets to their new owners. If you can add a little to your donation to help us cover our volunteer driver's expenses, that would be great!

About Forget-Me-Not Animal Shelter

About Our Shelter...

We are a limited-admission, low-kill animal shelter in Ferry County, WA, and are staffed primarily by volunteers. We receive no funding from any government source, and are supported by donations and grants.

Donate to Our Shelter...

Come Meet Our Pets...

The shelter is located at 49 W Curlew Lake Rd, Republic; we schedule appointments to meet the pets.

We do transports of adopted pets to the Seattle and Spokane areas at least once each month, and can sometimes schedule transports to other locations in WA, ID, OR, MT as needed.

Our Adoption Process...

Our minimum adoption donations are indicated on each pet's listing.

The first step toward adoption is to fill out the application, which we can email to you or you can find on our website:

Filling out the application in no way commits you to adopting - it simply enables us to get you preapproved, in case you decide you want to adopt. If you are then approved and offered a pet placement, you may always refuse the placement. If you accept a placement, we always give you three days (for puppies and kittens) or thirty days (for adult dogs and cats) to live with each other; if during that time you decide that your new pet simply won't work out, for any reason, we will accept the pet back with a full refund of your adoption donation. You could either return the pet directly to us, or have it picked up on our next transport! I must say, we are very proud of our successful placement record - we really work hard to make sure you and your pet will be a great match.

If you are out of our immediate area, we ask that you email some photos of your home, yard (including fence if you have one), any "animal-specific" areas (such as a dog run, cat tree, or sleeping area) and any other pets you currently own. Sometimes photos enable us to skip the pre-adoption home visit, which can speed things up considerably for out of area adoptions! For the vet reference, either a vet who is seeing your current pets, or a vet who saw a former pet, is acceptable. If this is your first pet ever, congratulations on joining the pet world! :-D We will consider your application without a vet reference, but we would like to know what vet you think you will use for your pet. Without a vet reference, please be sure to provide at least two strong personal references who would know how you are with animals.

If we have an upcoming transport scheduled to your area, we will make every effort to process and approve your application in time for the transport.
