ANGEL IS SPREADING HER WINGS: Struck by a car and rescued from the road in the middle of a cold December night, Angel endured surgeries and having a pin in her leg for more than a month, and her compromised defenses made her anxious in her shelter cage. Now that the pin is out and her leg is healed, we are finally beginning to convince her that we ain’t so bad — in fact, it's actually nice to be cuddled by a volunteer! She has made such remarkable progress of late, has been cuddled by several different volunteers and even visitors who are total strangers to her, and has enjoyed quality lap time and brushing from some shelter visitors, so she is quickly learning not just to trust her volunteers, but to trust all people she meets, including children. She is happily discovering that humans have a lot to offer a young kitty! Angel never swatted at us, never tried to bite, and never tried to scratch us. She still hisses at us a little bit when we first approach her in her cage, but less and less each day, as her natural kitten curiosity begins to win out, and her eagerness to leave her cage and spend time with the other shelter kitties is gradually easing her fears. When we put her down on top of the cages, she just sits there happily observing all of the cat room activity, hanging out with other cats and stretching her legs a bit. And from her happy perch, she enjoys when we stop by to pet her and give her a peck on the forehead. This sweet young cat just needs to get into a home and away from a cage to finally complete her social progress — that little cave she calls home most hours of the day is holding her back just a little bit, because she knows she is not really free. She is young, about 10 months old, and already shows a real fondness for the other shelter cats she encounters, so we think she would thrive in a home with a companion cat for her to socialize with.

Though she tested positive for FIV, this will have no negative impact on her health or longevity — cats with FIV live long, normal, healthy lives, just like any other cat, require no medication, and the virus is not easily transmitted between spayed or neutered cats. Angel tested negative for feline leukemia, is box-trained, spayed, and current on vaccinations.

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.
