'Upper Peninsula Animal Wefare Shelter'

(formerly Marquette County Humane Society)

From Cole's Foster Mom:

I fostered Cole and Phoebe for about 2 1/2 months. These two would be great for someone who likes the company but doesn't really like cuddlers who are always climbing on you.

Phoebe is the most gregarious and out spoken (she will meow for food or treats). Cole is the sweetest although he spent a couple weeks under the bed sneaking out for food. They both loved their cat beds but also will like your bed once settled in at their new home. I think since they are older they take a little longer to open up so their new family would need patience to let them go at their own pace.

They love stinky wet cat food and lots of fresh water. They adore crunchy cat treats (not soft ones) especially first thing in am and at bedtime. They are very clean and always use their liter box. The box may have been too small but Phoebe sometimes hungover and peed on floor. No problem just put a doggie pad in front of liter box for few times she misses. They never have accidents.

I loved them dearly and thank upaws for all they do.

-Cole's Foster Mom

Phoebe is wonderful 16 year old kitty cat that find herself homeless after her beloved former owner passed away. She may be shy at first, but once she gets to know you, she warms up. She is fine with other cats, though she may tend to ignore them.
She likes to be petted and talked to softy. A gentle and loving caress and a big kitty box are all that's needed for this tender feline.
