Facts about Bitsie

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Black (All)
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: RB04
  • Hair: Short
Bitsie came in as a member of a feral colony on which we were doing TNR (trap-neuter-return). After she finished with her vet visit for spay (found she had already been done), vaccination, and ear-tipping, she (unlike most ferals) started purring and seeking out human attention. Turns out, her previous owner (who lived near the property where the colony lives) had died, and Bitsie ended up outside, where she joined the colony to give herself a home of sorts. Awwwwww, poor Bitsie! Some good sleuthing turned up the information on her prior life, so we now know that Bitsie turned 5 in July 2016, and she is ready to have a new human of her own. She enjoys napping, cuddling, cat treats, a little play time, napping, cat treats, cuddling, cat treats, and cat treats.

Bitsie is an easy cat, who seems pretty tolerant of other cats and who likes most people she meets - she prefers people with a calm demeanor, but would do fine with polite, quiet children (and may be perfect for a recalcitrant teenager's companion). She will want to sleep on your bed, but would do fine with an indoor/outdoor or indoor only lifestyle.

All pets arrive spayed/neutered, dewormed, microchipped and vaccinated. Adoption fee for Bitsie is suggested minimum $40 (more gratefully accepted). All pets are placed with a 30-day money-back trial period, to give pet and family enough time to discover any unknown allergies or other conflicts. Can't come to Republic? Don't let that stop you! We have monthly transports to both the Seattle area and Spokane, delivering adopted pets to their new owners. If you can add a little to your donation to help us cover our volunteer driver's expenses, that would be great!

Donate to Our Shelter...

Come Meet Our Pets...

The shelter is located at 49 W Curlew Lake Rd, Republic; we schedule appointments to meet the pets.

We do transports of adopted pets to the Seattle and Spokane areas at least once each month, and can sometimes schedule transports to other locations in WA, ID, OR, MT as needed.

Our Adoption Process...

Our minimum adoption donations are indicated on each pet's listing.

The first step toward adoption is to fill out the application, which we can email to you or you can find on our website:

Filling out the application in no way commits you to adopting - it simply enables us to get you preapproved, in case you decide you want to adopt. If you are then approved and offered a pet placement, you may always refuse the placement. If you accept a placement, we always give you three days (for puppies and kittens) or thirty days (for adult dogs and cats) to live with each other; if during that time you decide that your new pet simply won't work out, for any reason, we will accept the pet back with a full refund of your adoption donation. You could either return the pet directly to us, or have it picked up on our next transport! I must say, we are very proud of our successful placement record - we really work hard to make sure you and your pet will be a great match.

If you are out of our immediate area, we ask that you email some photos of your home, yard (including fence if you have one), any "animal-specific" areas (such as a dog run, cat tree, or sleeping area) and any other pets you currently own. Sometimes photos enable us to skip the pre-adoption home visit, which can speed things up considerably for out of area adoptions! For the vet reference, either a vet who is seeing your current pets, or a vet who saw a former pet, is acceptable. If this is your first pet ever, congratulations on joining the pet world! :-D We will consider your application without a vet reference, but we would like to know what vet you think you will use for your pet. Without a vet reference, please be sure to provide at least two strong personal references who would know how you are with animals.

If we have an upcoming transport scheduled to your area, we will make every effort to process and approve your application in time for the transport.
