From the Foster:
Clara the Cat is on a mission: to find her forever home. She will dart through doors, look behind curtains, run through blanket tunnels – no obstacle is too much for her. This cat is all about adventure and fun – on her terms, of course (she IS a kitty after all!). Clara sees the world as a place to explore. You can often find her moving heaven and earth to look out the window, especially when it snows so she can “chase” snowflakes.
If you are looking for a sleepy kitty content to sleep the day away, Clara is not your cat. If you want a cat that will hide around corners and jump put to surprise you, Clara is your cat. Clara would be great with another cat who is relaxed and can let her be the party animal, or a dog who is on the smaller side! Are you looking for a fastidious cat too dainty to make a mess? Nope. Clara ain’t got time for tidy. There are toys to be attacked. You need a ferocious feline willing to protect you from bugs, dark spaces, and leaky faucets? Clara is your cat. Of course, she might trip you up in the process because, well, she has to know what is going on at all moments, but that’s cool. And so is Clara.
Clara is a party animal and thrives in a crowd (she loves kids), so a family would be great for her. She adores activity and mental stimulation – she’ll even play dress up if you want. But if you don’t keep her engaged, she will find a way to entertain herself, so be prepared. So to summarize: Clara is a quirky kitty looking for a fun forever family. Do YOU have what it takes?
All cats are in individual foster homes throughout the Twin Cities.

If you live in MN, WI, IA, SD, ND, or IL and would like to meet/adopt this animal or anyone else, then please fill out an adoption application at http://secondhandhounds.org/adoption-information/ and the foster(s) will be in touch!
Keep in mind that there may be multiple applicants applying for the same animal(s). You only need to complete 1 application for multiple animals that you're interested in.
Note - We change an animal's listing to say "PENDING ADOPTION" when they already had a meet and greet with a family who plans to adopt that animal. We put "NO LONGER ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS" on a listing when an animal has multiple applications in and the foster has asked to stop accepting any more while they review the applications they've already received.
