Facts about Heather and Heron

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Tortoiseshell
  • Age: Kitten
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
HEATHER and HERON are two adorable sisters about six months old. Heather is a dark tortie (brown, orange and cream, mingled), and Heron is satiny solid blue-gray (think “Great Blue Heron”). Look at those pretty little faces !

They were part of a group of five kittens that spent their early weeks outdoors. Three were adopted already. These two are the shyest, requiring more time to accept humans. They are much more social now, and love to be patted, purring loudly. They still don’t care to be picked up and handled much, maintaining that independent streak. They are stubborn little cats: they won’t do what you ask (“go home”), but may do so later, on their own terms.

These two girls would like a quiet home with patient humans, and a safe room with hidey-holes for a while, so they can get used to their new surroundings. Lots of interaction with their new family to complete the socialization process. Nice dishes of food are also a good motivator.

If you think you could win the trust of these two lovely kitties, come on over and meet them. They are waiting to meet you!

About Milford Humane Society

About Our Shelter...

The Milford Humane Society is an all-volunteer, non-profit, no-kill shelter for stray and abandoned cats. First organized in September 1990 to fill a need in the community, we help to care and find homes for the ever-increasing number of homeless cats that exist in the local area. These cats survive by scrounging in dumpsters for food and finding shelter wherever possible.

Most of our cats are housed at the shelter. Others are cared for in foster homes until space becomes available at the shelter. Admission to the shelter is not based solely on adoptability but on need. The motto of the Milford Humane Society is to share the gift of unconditional love with as many cats and kittens as possible.

Our Adoption Process...

All cats and kittens are spayed or neutered, have tested negative for FelV and FIV (unless otherwise noted), have distemper and rabies shots, and are microchipped prior to being adopted.

Certain requirements must be met to adopt a cat, such as the cats must be kept indoors, and never de-clawed. Potential adopters must provide their landlord's written permission to have cats on their property. There is an adoption fee.
