Facts about Addie

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Gray, Blue Or Silver Tabby
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 5873
  • Hair: Short
Addie is believed to be about 6 years old and was found in Woodstock. She showed up at a farm pregnant. The man who found her did everything he could for her until AOS could get her. She was brought into foster care, and within 2 days, she gave birth to 4 beautiful kittens. All of Addie's kittens have found their forever homes, and now it's her turn. Addie is very sweet but guarded until she knows you. She's very playful and loves her catnip toys. She does seek out and want attention but will still be unsure until she learns to trust you. Addie will do best in a home with other cats who are very submissive and who will leave her be. She will need to be introduced very slowly to any other pets. She tolerates the resident Great Dane at her foster home but prefers to keep her distance. Addie could go to a home with a dog, as long as the dog pays her no attention.

Our Adoption Process...

An adoption application must be filled out. An applicant must be 21 years of age or older. If adopter rents home or an apartment a copy of the lease must be seen or we must speak with a landlord prior to the adoption. All cats must be kept indoors only! If for some reason the adoption does not work out the animal is welcomed back into the organization. If a cat is returned to AOHS the cat must be healthy and adoptable and returns will be based on availability of foster homes. The adoption fee is non-refundable.

All of our animals are tested for FELV and FIV, Spay or neutered prior to the adoption. Have been given a distemper shot, been dewormed, microchipped and have a signed health check. Most important is that the animals are cared for in loving foster homes when the animals are exposed to a home enviroment in which they have free roam, interact with foster familes and are loved.

Adoption fees for kittens under a year old is $150, cash or check. All cats 1-7 years old are $100. All cats over 7 years old are $75.
