Facts about Marceline

  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 14126251
  • Hair: Unknown
Marceline (A14126251) is a beautiful 6 year old cat looking for a quiet home to call her own! She was first brought to ACCT in 2011, was adopted and lived in a home for 5 years, and found herself back at the shelter when her family was moving and couldn't take her. Her owner reported- and we've found to be true- that she is quiet, good with other cats, loves to be pet and brushed, and is shy at first with strangers. Over the last few months in our home, Marceline has really blossomed as she's learned to trust us. She started off hiding under our bed, only coming out to eat and use the litter box, and now she sleeps with us at night, demands to be pet, and comes running to see us when we get home. She's the sweetest girl who would do best in a quiet home with owners who are willing to give her some time and space to adjust to a new situation. As soon as she knows she's safe and loved, she is happy to be a part of the family. She is past the kitten stage of crazy antics and would be perfect for people looking for a low-key companion. She is felv-fiv tested negative, up to date on her vaccines, and has no known medical issues. We are looking for an adopter who already has an established relationship with a vet, so if you're interested in her, please provide your vet's information along with any other questions you have.
