Please contact Candace ( for more information about this pet.Big Boy with a big heart

This handsome brown tabby has the ticked coat of a cougar, and the warm heart of a pussycat.  He is 11 years old and healthy.  His loving nature can be a little reticent at first, reflecting the instability of his life in the past 2 years.  His original owner had him since kittenhood but had to give him back to CC4C when she lost her home.  A loving young adopter was found, but her life situation required moving every few months into very restricted housing, and poor Shawn couldn't handle the insecurity.  He's now happily fostered in a guest room with a young adult female, but would love a home where he can be showered with more attention, perhaps as the only cat (he has a tendency toward alpha behavior with others).  Shawn loves being petted and scratched around his cheeks.  If he wants you to continue, he'll gently pat your cheek with his paw.  And he'll softly rub his cheek against yours as a sign of affection.   Shawn has a sometimes-sensitive digestion and may throw up a bit if allowed to free-feed.  Prefers a quiet home. This big charming guy is usually shown at Lafayette Pet Food Express on Saturdays from 1:00 - 4:00.  But please contact Candace at to make sure he'll be available for you to meet and fall in love with this big, sweet boy.  $100 adoption fee; or $50 senior-to-senior rate if adopter is over 55.

Our Adoption Process...

CC4C’s adoption program is designed to match each cat with a home that it will have for the rest of its life. Adopting a cat is a lifetime commitment and CC4C wants to make the best possible match for you and your future cat. CC4C strives to provide you with many helpful resources and information about cat care, food and nutrition, health, house training, etc., that you can take home with you and use as a guide to help with your new kitty. The adoption process takes time, so please come early to our adoption sites to work through the process and paperwork. Our CC4C members will work with you to find your perfect match in a cat. Remember, the time you spend getting to know your new cat is well invested, since your cat will live with your for the next 15-20 years. What cat is best for you?

We prefer that all family members living at home participate in the adoption process to ensure the best match. CC4C does not do third-party adoptions (e.g. a gift to another person), but does encourage friends and family members to browse and ask questions if they are helping another to find a companion.

You may download and complete an Adoption Application in advance. Forms are also available at the adoption sites.

To research which CC4C cats are available for adoption, please visit our Available Cats page. Please note that not all of our cats and kittens are posted here, especially during kitten season when we are overwhelmed with new kittens. It is always best to visit the adoption site and speak with a CC4C member to find the cat or kitten that best fits your needs.
