Facts about Nora

  • Breed: Domestic Mediumhair
  • Color: Tortoiseshell
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Medium
Well hello, I'm Nora. I'm a beautiful medium haired dilute tortoiseshell lady, with my petite frame and stunning peach and gray coat. My wide green eyes may look startled, but that's just my charm.

I'm a sweet lady, but I haven't had an easy life. I was found abandoned outside after I was spayed by the Humane Society last winter, freezing and almost to the point of starvation. Because of my rough past, I can be a bit more shy and sensitive. Once I get to know you, I love pets and tummy rubs, purring my little whiskers off.

My personality can be described as a Secret Valentine, which means I may need a little time to warm up, but once I get to know you, I’m there for you. When you need a little space, I can entertain myself. But give me some one-on-one time and I’ve got my best purrs and head-bonks saved just for you.

I would probably do best in a home without small children or dogs, but I get along well with other mellow kitties with similar personalities to mine. I could be easily bullied by other cats, so I want to be in a house where that won't happen. I'll be able to blossom in a quiet home without loud noises.

They tell me I'm about 2 years old, so I can be adopted for $80, which includes my vaccinations, negative virus testing, spay, microchip, vet voucher, and a free food and litter starter kit. If you're looking for a sweet kitty who craves to be loved, please come visit me!

About Happy Cats Haven

About Our Shelter...

At Happy Cats Haven, we take in homeless Colorado cats and kittens and find them new, forever homes. We give our cats the gift of time: time to recover from the trauma of losing their homes and time to show their true personalities. All cats stay here until they are adopted, unless too ill to survive.

Each adoption is hand-crafted, matching our deep understanding of each cat with the adopters' needs and family members for the perfect match. Adopters also have all the time they need in our comfy colonies to get to know our kitties.

Our ongoing support with classes and online advice continues long past adoption. We have found forever families for over 1,400 cats and kittens since 2011!

All our funding comes from private individuals and grants. Eighty-seven percent of all money we raise goes directly to making sure every cat and kitten is healthy, happy and adoptable. For every full-time equivalent staff member, we saved over 160 cats and kittens in 2015. This was made possible by all of our dedicated, loving volunteers.

We are a 501(c)3 organization, so your donation is fully tax-deductible. If you would like to help us continue our good work, you can go to our website and click on the Help Us tab. The volunteers and kitties thank you!
