Sweet Marie, named for a volunteer's mom, came to the shelter in mid-October, a bit fearful of her surroundings, but very much wanting attention and affection from her volunteer friends. She is a pretty long-haired tuxedo and really enjoys being pet, and kissed, and held. Though she was initially timid around the other cats, she has since gained a lot of confidence and now happily strolls around the cat room when she's out of her cage, exploring and socializing, but also being mindful not to get in the way of the cranky pussy cats. When introduced to a couple shelter dogs, she hissed a bit, which is to be expected, but was also very curious about them, so we think she'll be fine in a home with dogs that have lived with cats before. Marie would make a great addition to just about any home -- one with non-aggressive dogs, one with cats, one with small children, or even one with just a single person who wants a very pretty and very sweet cat companion to share the home with.
Marie is estimated to be 9 years old, is box-trained, spayed, current on vaccinations, and tested negative for FIV and feline leukemia. Adoption fee for adult cats is $50 (cash or check only, please).
