Facts about Venus

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Tortoiseshell
  • Age: Kitten
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: C009130
  • Hair: Short
Poor Venus was living in a very scary place with her siblings. She had to hide to stay safe and search for scraps of food to survive. A lady came with a net and traps and caught the little ones to bring them to safety with St. Francis. Because the little babies had not gotten any love from humans, they were separated into different homes to learn how to trust humans and become inside kitties. Venus was very scared of everything at first and remains timid and shy due to her rough start in life. With patience, she will win you over just like she won the hearts of her foster parents and kitten siblings. She will need time to feel comfortable with her new humans. She has only met a few of the big animals that walk on two legs in her short life. Venus is nervous when first picked up, but once she gets comfortable and knows things are safe, she will cuddle and purr her little heart out until she is sleeping soundly. She is a gorgeous tortie girl with striking markings. She is a very active and loves to play like all kittens. She will do best with another young kitten who has been with humans longer. She has many foster siblings who will also be ready for homes very soon. She will require some patience and extra love to feel safe and secure. Venus is worth the small amount of extra effort.

About St. Francis Society Animal Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

St. Francis Society Animal Rescue is an all volunteer, non-profit 501-c-3 animal rescue organization dedicated to saving the lives of sick, injured, and stray domestic animals as well as spay/neuter and medical services for those animals. We seek to place animals in a loving foster or permanent home after recovery and we DO NOT euthanize unless terminal illness necessitates such a decision. All of our animals are spayed/neutered, tested for leukemia/FIV (cats), wormed and vaccinated before they are adopted.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Some of our cats ready for adoption can be seen at the following Adoption Center locations:

PetSmart, located at 12835 Citrus Park Dr across from the Citrus Park Mall. Our volunteers are onsite for adoptions Saturday and Sunday from 12:00pm to 5:00pm and will be happy to assist you with finding the perfect feline companion. PetSmart management can assist with an adoption during other days/hours, time permitting. Cats are onsite 7 days a week.

PetSmart, located at 11331 Causeway Blvd in Brandon. Cats and adoption counselors are onsite for adoptions Saturday from 9:00am to 3:00pm and Sunday from 10:30am to 2:30pm only.

Petco, located at 13127 N Dale Mabry Hwy. Cats and adoption counselors are onsite Saturdays from 11:00am to 4:00pm only.

We have many more cats than the ones housed at our Adoption Center locations. Our cats live with foster families until they are ready for adoption and space is available at an Adoption Center. If a cat is located in a foster home and the foster has provided contact information, you can get more details on a particular cat directly from them.
