Fancy (FeLV+)'s Story...
"Fancy" is a sweet adult female kitty who came to the HSOV on February 7, 2017 after a Good Samaritan found her in the Marietta Ohio area and brought her to the safety of our shelter. This little 'damsel in distress' needed extra TLC, and we waited about two weeks before taking her pictures to post. We apologize for graphic photos, but her eyes are actually looking 100% better than the day she arrived.

"Fancy" is a delightful little lady with the sweetest personality, and she has enjoyed loving attention from the very first moment she pushed her cute paws through the gate of her carrier.

This adorable girl has a seek black short smooth coat, a long tail, and a beautiful chubby-looking face. "Fancy" is being temporary listed as a 'Special Needs Cat', and we look forward to the day we will post updated photos with her big golden eyes looking beautiful again.

"Fancy" was given vaccinations, wormer, and Revolution flea treatment on February 9, 2017. She will be spayed (at no cost to her new family) before being adopted and leaving our shelter. She is available for foster or rescue at any time.

UPDATE: "Fancy" has been diagnosed with feline chlamydophila on April 26th (which is essentially chlamydia of the eyes) which is contagious :( She will require a 4-week treatment of doxycycline antibiotic to help clear up her eyes, but the chlamydia could reoccur :( "Fancy" is such a sweet kitty and truly deserves a chance at the good like and a loving home.

Fancy was combo tested and is positive for feline leukemia. Rest in peace sweet Fancy as you departed this life on June 5, 2017 :(

Rescue groups may contact our Feline Rescue Coordinator via email ( We can usually help with transportation and also provide combo testing without charge to rescues/fosters.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Fancy (FeLV+), a Marietta Domestic Shorthair cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Domestic Shorthair for sale in Marietta, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Marietta.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Marietta already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Marietta breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Domestic Shorthair breeders who help with Domestic Shorthair rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Marietta paves the way for another one to be saved.
