  • Age: Senior
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: C009917
  • Hair: Short
I am a very sad kitty. My special person died & the family dumped me at the scary shelter. In the month that I was there all I did was stay curled up in a ball. I miss my owner and don't understand any of this. At my foster home I hid under the bed for a week curled in a ball. My foster mother put me in a pen so she could pet me. While I love being petted, when it's over I curl back into a ball. At night I cry for hours for my owner. My foster mom put a little kitten in with me to keep me company. I like him and have stopped crying at night. I still have not totally come out of my shell, but am starting to show a little more interest in life. I need a quiet home with a loving, patient person. It would be best if I was kept in a bathroom at first where it will make it easy to interact with me. If you let me loose in the house I will just find a place to hide. I am a sweet, loving kitty. I have no front claws so I won't scratch your furniture.

About St. Francis Society Animal Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

St. Francis Society Animal Rescue is an all volunteer, non-profit 501-c-3 animal rescue organization dedicated to saving the lives of sick, injured, and stray domestic animals as well as spay/neuter and medical services for those animals. We seek to place animals in a loving foster or permanent home after recovery and we DO NOT euthanize unless terminal illness necessitates such a decision. All of our animals are spayed/neutered, tested for leukemia/FIV (cats), wormed and vaccinated before they are adopted.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Some of our cats ready for adoption can be seen at the following Adoption Center locations:

PetSmart, located at 12835 Citrus Park Dr across from the Citrus Park Mall. Our volunteers are onsite for adoptions Saturday and Sunday from 12:00pm to 5:00pm and will be happy to assist you with finding the perfect feline companion. PetSmart management can assist with an adoption during other days/hours, time permitting. Cats are onsite 7 days a week.

PetSmart, located at 11331 Causeway Blvd in Brandon. Cats and adoption counselors are onsite for adoptions Saturday from 9:00am to 3:00pm and Sunday from 10:30am to 2:30pm only.

Petco, located at 13127 N Dale Mabry Hwy. Cats and adoption counselors are onsite Saturdays from 11:00am to 4:00pm only.

We have many more cats than the ones housed at our Adoption Center locations. Our cats live with foster families until they are ready for adoption and space is available at an Adoption Center. If a cat is located in a foster home and the foster has provided contact information, you can get more details on a particular cat directly from them.

Our Adoption Process...

Cats are to be indoor only; no declawing; must present proof of pet deposit and copy of lease showing pets are allowed if renting. cats are spayed/neutered, up-to-date on age appropriate shots, wormed and defleaed. More is charged for exotic breeds (or mixed) - i.e. Siamese, Persians, Bengals, etc.
