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).
