Facts about Sonya

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Tortoiseshell
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 10378085
  • Hair: Short

Sonya is an adult, spayed female cat, probably born 2014 or early 2015.  She's quite a character  - nice, but strong-willed...we can't make Sonya do anything.  She tells US how things are going to run in her room and she usually gets her way (she's in a room with a bunch of males who won't challenge her and Maddy, who just doesn't care!).  She might be a great friend for a low-key adult cat, a kitten who needs discipline, or maybe as an only cat.  She will probably try to be bossy with dogs.

Sonya likes to sneak out and explore the shelter and she's figured out how to bide her time until we are trying to get in the door with a large litter box or armful of beds and can't maneuver quickly enough to stop her.  She's a very smart cat!  Sonya would like to find a home with lots of places to explore and people who will spend plenty of time playing with her. 

Update:  Sonya is trying out the room service at our satellite adoption location at Natural Pet Center, 3037 13th Ave South, Fargo.  You can visit her during their hours of operation, M-F 9am-8pm, Sat 9am-6pm, and Sun noon-5pm.  They have lots of delicious food and creative toys for pets so come in to do some shopping and stay to play with the kitties.

About Cat's Cradle Shelter, Inc.

About Our Shelter...

Cat’s Cradle Shelter, Inc. is a non-profit, volunteer-run, no-kill shelter located in Fargo, ND. We opened on January 1, 2012. Our mission is to create a more humane and compassionate world, one cat at time. Cat’s Cradle is a colony-based shelter with 7 colony rooms and an isolation/medical room with seven private units (plus room for additional temporary units). We utilize foster homes for kittens less than 8 or 10 weeks old and for cats needing extra medical care or socialization/attention. Most of our residents are last-chance pound rescues. We typically have between 60 and 90 cats in care (it varies with need), and adopt 30-40 each month (hopefully more!). Cat’s Cradle is part of new, multi-disciplinary effort (three cooperating rescues, staff from three pounds, animal control officers, veterinarians, and community supporters) to reduce the number of adoptable cats being killed in area pounds.

Come Meet Our Pets...

9 9th Street South, Fargo, ND
Open houses Tuesdays 4-7pm and Saturdays 10am-4pm. If these times don't work for you, please call us at 701-356-7877 and we will arrange a private visit. Please be aware that there is usually at least a 24 hour delay between filling out an application and bringing a cat home, as we need time to check references.

Our Adoption Process...

Cat's Cradle requires an application, site visit, and interview. If a prospective adopter rents their home, we will call the landlord to confirm that pets are allowed on the property. Our adoption counselors will work hard to find the best match for the both family and the shelter cat. Our 2012 adoption fee is $109. This includes: intake health exam & FEL/FIV screening; 3 doses of roundworm de-wormer (and other parasite screening/treatment when necessary); age-appropriate vaccinations (rabies and distemper, including booster shots for kittens); spay or neuter surgery; microchip; and any other medical treatment recommended by the attending or consulting veterinarian(s) (for injury, illness, infection, etc). We allow a three week trial period to make sure that the cat and his/her new family are a good match, and if things don't work out...we always want our cats back! We prefer to adopt in our own area because A) we insist on meeting prospective families and B) we will not risk shipping our cats. We reserve the right to decline to adopt any cat into a situation that we feel will not meet his/her needs.
