Facts about Calypso

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Brown Tabby
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 16FC43
  • Hair: Short
Calypso arrived at the shelter in early November, and now that she's seen the vet, she is ready to find a home for good, and a family forever. She is a stunning tabby, with a lot of hints of Bengal breeding in her, though we know from her physique that she is most definitely not a pure-bred Bengal. She is an absolute darling cat, who loves to be held close, hugged tight, and kissed as much as we can give her. She's so enamored of human contact that she rubs faces and noses with her volunteer friends. She gets along just fine with the other shelter cats, even the cranky ones -- she is not intimidated by them, but she is also mindful to respect their space. She is an ideal candidate for most homes, those with cats and even young children.

We're not completely sure how she feels about dogs. When we brought dogs in to meet the cats, she retreated in her cage and hissed, but did not show excessive stress. She might be fine living with a dog that has lived with cats before. If you are interested in Calypso and have a dog, please let us know what kind of dog, and we'll see how she feels about a dog close in size to yours.

Somebody, at some point, showed this cat how wonderful human love is, she is so happy to receive it from the volunteers, so perhaps you or someone you know can carry on with Calypso, and give her the time, attention and affection that we simply don't have the hours to give her at the shelter. She's a great cat, and deserves better than a cage!

Calypso is estimated to be 5 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).

About Scituate RI Animal Shelter

About Our Shelter...

THE SCITUATE ANIMAL SHELTER is a municipal facility under the supervision of Scituate Animal Control, a division of the Scituate, Rhode Island Police Department. We take in animals from Scituate and Foster and provide care until we can find good homes for them. We also socialize all cats and dogs who need such work in order to be ready for life in a home and with a family. The shelter staff and the volunteers will go to great lengths to find homes for all animals that we have at the shelter. Vet references are required for all potential adopters and decisions are made by our Animal Control Officers.
