Boots is a friendly, mellow guy who's looking for an indoor/outdoor home with his friend Gray

Purrsonal Information
Age: About eight years old
Likes: Being outside and just chilling with my friends.
Dislikes I can't think of anything I dislike except being stuck indoors all the time. I'd hate that!
Health Concerns: I tested positive for FIV. Not quite sure what that means. But I feel great, and my human friends say it's a "non-issue."
Ideal Home: Indoor/outdoor with my friend, Gray.

Boots's Story
Gray and I were living happily ever after as indoor/outdoor cats with a nice family. Turned out our family wasn't so nice, after all. They moved and left us behind. Outside. We found a temporary home on a neighbor's deck. But then the neighbors moved, too, and couldn't take us along. So we're with the Howard County Cat Club now. We like it here, but we would so love to have our own home again. Could that be with you? Come meet us, and you'll fall in love. And don't let that FIV stop you! You can learn about FIV here:

About Howard County Cat Club - no kill shelter

About Our Rescue Group...

The Howard County Cat Club is a registered 501 (c)(3) nonprofit no kill cat rescue. Our mission is to keep cats out of shelters because we believe that no cat deserves to live in a cage, or to be put to death because it is no longer wanted or in the way. We operate a behavior hotline to help cats and their human companions resolve their differences. We advise people who are trying to place their no-longer-wanted cats in loving new homes, and we foster cats in our "group home" when they have no place else to go.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We are not having adoption shows at the moment, but we invite you to our shelter to meet our cats. Please call or write for an appointment.

Our Adoption Process...

Potential forever families must complete an application and sign a contract. Our contract stipulates that you will NOT declaw and that the cat will be returned to us if things don't work out. Cats who are adopted together must be returned together -- they may not be separated. Our contract also stipulates that you will feed wet food -- we do not want our cats to have dry food-only diets. We DO adopt to safe, responsible indoor/outdoor homes. And we almost always have ferals who must be relocated to barn homes.
