Facts about Angelou VALENTINE'S SPECIAL! 5

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Tortoiseshell
  • Age: Kitten
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: LP203
  • Hair: Short
Introducing the Poets kittens; they were born 7/18/16, and were discovered at about 2 1/2 weeks old in a feral colony on which we were doing TNR (trap-neuter-return). They and their mom went into foster care (mom has since had her own badly infected eye removed, and has been spayed and returned to her colony). These kittens had the misfortune to suffer from horrible eye infections during their short time in the colony, which has left them vision impaired. As if that weren't bad enough, they also had a ringworm fungal infection which required treatment for a couple of months! They are now finished with all of their various surgeries, eye, and ringworm treatments, and are ready to head to forever homes.

Angelou is a torbie (tortoiseshell-tabby) girl, with great spots on her sides. Both her eyes were infected, but it was extremely bad in her left eye, which was nonfunctional and painful. That eye was removed safely during her spay surgery. The cornea of Angelou’s right eye is extremely scratched, distorting the color of her eye. Her sight is limited, but she can see well enough to run, jump, and play with Hughes. She doesn’t seem able to keep up with very fast movement. Angelou and her brother Hughes are a bonded pair; they sleep with each other, and you will see one of them grooming the other. Angelou might be relying on Hughes’s “good” vision to help her own. Preference will be given to a home that would be able to welcome both.

We'd love to see all kittens go to homes that have another young, playful kitten, or to send 2 of them out as a pair (which gives you a great pair discount rate), but we do not require pair adoptions. If you prefer to adopt just one, and you don't have a similarly aged kitten at home already, please read our information on Single Kitten Syndrome . Then, when you apply for a single kitten, please let us know in the "Comments" field how you plan to deal with the "kitten crazies."

All kittens arrive spayed/neutered, dewormed, microchipped and with all age-appropriate vaccinations. Adoption fee for Angelou is suggested minimum $50 (more gratefully accepted). Discount available for pair adoptions! All pets are placed with a 30-day money-back trial period, to give pet and family enough time to discover any unknown allergies or other conflicts. Can't come to Republic? Don't let that stop you! We have monthly transports to both the Seattle area and Spokane, delivering adopted pets to their new owners. If you can add a little to your donation to help us cover our volunteer driver's expenses, that would be great!

About Forget-Me-Not Animal Shelter

About Our Shelter...

We are a no-kill animal shelter in Ferry County, WA, and are staffed primarily by volunteers. We receive no funding from any government source, and are supported by donations and grants.

Donate to Our Shelter...

Come Meet Our Pets...

The shelter is located at 49 W Curlew Lake Rd, Republic; we have open hours every Wednesday and Saturday from 1:00 - 3:00 p.m. and also can schedule appointments for preapproved applicants to meet the pets.

We do transports of adopted pets to the Seattle and Spokane areas at least once each month, and can sometimes schedule transports to other locations in WA, ID, OR, MT as needed.

Our Adoption Process...

Our minimum adoption donations are indicated on each pet's listing.

The first step toward adoption is to fill out the application, which we can email to you or you can find on our website:

Filling out the application in no way commits you to adopting - it simply enables us to get you preapproved, in case you decide you want to adopt. If you are then approved and offered a pet placement, you may always refuse the placement. If you accept a placement, we always give you three days (for puppies and kittens) or thirty days (for adult dogs and cats) to live with each other; if during that time you decide that your new pet simply won't work out, for any reason, we will accept the pet back with a full refund of your adoption donation. You could either return the pet directly to us, or have it picked up on our next transport! I must say, we are very proud of our successful placement record - we really work hard to make sure you and your pet will be a great match.

If you are out of our immediate area, we ask that you email some photos of your home, yard (including fence if you have one), any "animal-specific" areas (such as a dog run, cat tree, or sleeping area) and any other pets you currently own. Sometimes photos enable us to skip the pre-adoption home visit, which can speed things up considerably for out of area adoptions! For the vet reference, either a vet who is seeing your current pets, or a vet who saw a former pet, is acceptable. If this is your first pet ever, congratulations on joining the pet world! :-D We will consider your application without a vet reference, but we would like to know what vet you think you will use for your pet. Without a vet reference, please be sure to provide at least two strong personal references who would know how you are with animals.

If we have an upcoming transport scheduled to your area, we will make every effort to process and approve your application in time for the transport.
