Facts about Chibi

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Brown Tabby
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: ps_79472210
  • Hair: Short

Chibi is a word for "small child" child in Japanese. When Chibi came to her foster home, she was about 6 weeks old but was only the size of about a two week old. She was extremely tiny for a very long time. She is still a small cat. She has an exotic look - she is a beautiful cat. Chibi is loving, sweet and still plays a great deal. She gets along with other cats when she wants to and loves her foster mom's dog. She has been fine around small children as well. 

Chibi has a condition called stomatitis which causes extremely painful ulcers to form in her mouth and on her gums. Stomatitis is an auto-immune disorder. She gets a steroid shot when she starts having problems and it has worked wonderfully for her. Some cats with stomatitis may eventually have to have their teeth pulled if the condition can no longer be controlled by the steroids. Because of her need for careful monitoring so that she doesn't have to be in needless pain and can be taken for the steroid injection sooner rather than later, Chibi is considered special needs. 

She is an awesome, beautiful girl that is a perfectly healthy cat other than her having stomatitis! She will give you loads of love for the rest of her life!!

About Humane Society of Terrell County

About Our Rescue Group...

The Humane Society of Terrell County (HSTC) is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with a registered mailing address in Dawson, GA. We DO NOT have a shelter. We are an all volunteer based rescue operating as a network of foster homes that care for pets in our homes until they can be adopted into loving homes.

HSTC is always in need of donations, volunteers and foster homes. You can find out more about our rescue, our pets and ways you can help by visiting our website at Our telephone number is voice-mail only and is checked several times per week. Email is the best way to contact us. You can always message us through our website as well.

Come Meet Our Pets...

HSTC partners with the local PetSmart store in Albany Georgia in adopting our cats into permanent homes. We rotate our cats every two weeks to keep them from getting too bored or stressed while in the adoption center. Our foster homes are happy to work with anyone that would like information on any of our cats that are not currently in rotation and housed at the PetSmart adoption center. Please do not hesitate to email us for information on how to meet your new best friend!

HSTC holds small adoption events at PetSmart in Albany, GA on the first and third weekends of each month where you can meet some of our dogs available for adoption. PetSmart Charities holds national adoption events during the months of February, May, September and November and HSTC participates in each of these national events. HSTC does not hold our normal first and third weekend events during the months of the national adoption events. We are happy to schedule a meet and greet with potential adopters who would like to meet particular dogs once an application is approved.

Our Adoption Process...

The adoption fee for dogs is $85 and cats $75 (we will discount if more than one pet is adopted at the same time or the adoptee is taking on some type of medical care). We do allow out-of-state adoptions, however, transportation is the responsibility of the adopter.

We require a completed adoption application with a vet reference provided. We screen all applications prior to a meet and greet and we will call your vet to verify your information. Adoption applications are approved on a case-by-case basis, taking into consideration matching the needs of the pet to an owner. Some long distance adoptions may also require a home visit from a local animal rescuer in the adopter’s area.

HSTC is an all volunteer organization - we have no paid staff and we DO NOT have a shelter. The majority of our pets are in individual foster homes with fosters who work full time jobs - some of our dogs are in boarding at one of our vet's offices. We make every effort to respond to questions and make contact on applications within 24-48 hours of receiving them. Please be patient with us.
