Facts about Harper

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Tiger Striped
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: GMS Christina
  • Hair: Short
My name is Harper and I am a SUN cat because I like to play bite and scratch (but don't ever break skin, I'm just playing!). I also don't like being picked up and HATE carriers. I do like to be pet, but I prefer to run around and play with other cats. I'm very entertaining to watch!

Poor Harper was found on someone's doorstep. Just left there in a carrier with a note attached that said "A gift for you. I'm sorry, I know you like cats. My mom won't let me keep her. Thank you." She had a cone around her head in the carrier because she had just been spayed. She was serious distress when we were called and required extensive medical care because of an abscess on her shoulder that must have been the result of an injury.

She has been through so much! She was abandoned and injured and who knows how long she was in that carrier before being rescued. After going through all that, she is now an absolute love! She enjoys playing and bonds quickly. She loves playing with other cats and loves to entertain. She does not like being held or picked up, but does enjoy being pet and played with. She also likes to play bite and scratch (but never breaks skin!), so she would do better in a home without children.

If you would like to give this sweet girl the comfort, stability, and love that she deserves please fill out an application using the link below!

About CONNER'S CAUSE for Supposedly Unadoptable Cats

About Our Rescue Group...

We believe that every cat deserves to be cared for whether they play with you, curl up in your lap, or prefer to hang out by themselves or with other feline companions.

Conner's Cause is sponsored by Give Me Shelter Project, Inc. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit animal rescue, education and advocacy organization. You can learn more about Give Me Shelter Project by visiting our website:

Conner’s Cause is an initiative that Give Me Shelter Project has launched to try to find loving forever homes for the Supposedly Unadoptable Cats that currently reside in animal shelters and with rescue groups.

Our organization has generally defined "supposedly unadoptable cats" as those who range in temperament from semi-friendly to semi-feral. For the purposes of this initiative, we have broadened our definition of “supposedly unadoptable cats” to include other categories of cats that are difficult to place in adoptive homes. These include: seniors, handicapped, FIV+, FeLV+, cats with treatable and untreatable illnesses.

We invite you to consider adopting a "Supposedly Unadoptable Cat". Please join “Conner’s Cause” and BRING HOME THE MAGIC!

Our Adoption Process...

You will be asked to fill out an adoption application and generally a telephone interview will follow. Next, a home visit will be performed to help "ready" your home for the new cat(s).

Supposedly Unadoptable Cats are special and we require adopters for this particular group of cats to be experienced cat people.

While we hope that the commitment you make will be life long, all cats adopted out through this initiative will be returnable for the life of the cat.
