Facts about Joyce

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Black (All)
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short

Oh, I like to think of myself as a proper, decent ladycat, you know?

I mean, no offense, but some of these cats here are very, um, "exuberant". It's not a bad thing - some people want cats like that, I suppose. Cats who are all, "OMG pick me, pick me! I'll run all over your house at 3 am and we can play and it'll be great!" Honestly, it's like they were raised in a barn.

Well, some of them probably were, I imagine! So you can hardly blame them.

But that kind of over-the-top personality is just, well, not me. Don't get me wrong - I love to play with toys as much as the next cat! And I can get positively silly when catnip is involved, heaven knows!

But I have to factor in a certain amount of respectability as well. A certain amount of dignity. I aim for "playful", not "crazy". I am "sweet and friendly", not "needy and clingy".

So if you're looking for a cat who is an absolute lunatic and will climb your legs and run around at all hours, you will need to look elsewhere. I am not that cat.

But if you're looking for a proper ladycat - very friendly and quite playful, but with a basic level of dignity and self respect, then perhaps we should meet! Please do come by and see me - ask for Joyce - that's me!

Thank you!

Joyce has been vaccinated, wormed, spayed/neutered and tested negative for FELV/FIV which is all included in the $65 adoption fee. If you would like to adopt this cat, you must come into the shelter for a meet and greet. We are open 12-4. (Closed Mondays & Wednesdays) All cats must leave the shelter in a carrier. If you do not bring one with you, one must be purchased at the shelter if available for $5.
