Facts about Xena

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Orange Or Red (Mostly)
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
Xena is a big sweet bundle of tabby. She is the size of what is more commonly seen in a large male orange tabby, so that makes her very unique. She is a very sweet kitty. Not your typical lap cat but likes to snuggle up against you, begging for pets, which you cannot refuse. She adores being petted and gladly lets you brush her.

She was pulled from the shelter very pregnant and has since weaned all of her kittens and is ready for her forever home. She still has her motherly instincts though. In her foster home, she shares a room with two kittens she has taken under her paw. She grooms them and plays gently with them. She is such a sweet cat and will make someone a wonderful companion.

The adoption fee is $65 which covers all the vet work that has been done including Feline Leukemia and FIV Test plus for kittens their spay/neuter when old enough. For more information or an adoption application please contact

About Humane Society of Wilkes

About Our Rescue Group...

The Humane Society of Wilkes is a volunteer organization. We do not have a shelter, but we work to rescue as many pets as possible from the county kill shelter. We are dedicated to the prevention of cruelty to animals, the relief of suffering among animals, and the education of the public regarding humane treatment of animals. We support these goals through our member dues, tax-deductible donations, and fund-raising projects such as our annual Best Friends Calendar and booths at the Brushy Mountain Apple Festival. With these funds we have been able to: place billboards around the county encouraging spaying and neutering of pets, provide Kind News subscriptions to all kindergarten, first and second grade classrooms in Wilkes County, and work closely with Wilkes County Animal Control to place pets from their shelter into appropriate homes. We also help to pay for spaying and neutering of pets for residents of Wilkes County.

You can become a member.
