Facts about Clyde

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Black (All)
  • Age: Kitten
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 2016399F
  • Hair: Short
While I may look like every other black kitten, I assure you that I stand out. I'm super fast and like to show it off. I am always the first at the door to greet my foster family. I really love the strings with a ball on the end. I could play with that all day. When I'm not being a crazy kitten, I find comfort just being around you. I may not sit on your lap every time but I sit very close because humans make me feel safe. I even will put a paw on you to make sure you don't leave me behind. I loved being with my foster family, but now it's time for me to step out on my own.

Clyde's adoption fee is $100; he is microchipped, up to date on vaccines, and will be altered prior to adoption. Some of our pets are in foster care. If you are interested in a specific pet, please contact the shelter at (618) 939-7389 to arrange a meeting.

About Helping Strays of Monroe County

About Our Shelter...

We promote the humane care of all abandoned and stray animals in our community. We are a no-kill shelter. All of our pets leave the shelter for their forever homes micro-chipped, up to date on vaccines, and altered.

Founded in 2002, Helping Strays is a non-profit 501(c)(3) charitable organization supported entirely by donations.

Our lucky animals receive appropriate medical care, are featured on the Helping Strays website "adoption list" and are taken to several adoption events every month in an attempt to find permanent, loving homes.
