Facts about Lyman

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Brown Tabby
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: C1026
  • Hair: Short
Lyman and his brother Lamont arrived at the shelter as strays, after being found in a very remote area. They started off so shy we didn't know when (or if) we'd be able to coax them out of their hiding places... but the fabulous team of shelter volunteers went to work and convinced these boys that humans are the source of all things wonderful in their world, and now they are fun, playful, affectionate kitties. They may still be shy around strangers, but once they get to know you, your personal space belongs to them!

They are about a year old, and can be a little challenging to tell apart until you get to know them! See if you can spot the differences in their photos (this page is all Lyman, and Lamont's page is here), and then try to pick each one out in the video below. They do love each other, and also their other Room 1 cat friends, but do not need to be adopted together. These boys should do well in pretty much any sort of home, except one that hosts toddler parties every day or has an endless rotation of strangers coming for their AirBNB experiences. They are good with other cats and should adapt to a cat-friendly dog fairly quickly.

All pets arrive spayed/neutered, dewormed, microchipped and vaccinated. Adoption fee for Lyman is suggested minimum $40 (more gratefully accepted). 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.
