Facts about Fluffy

  • Breed: Domestic Longhair
  • Color: Black & White Or Tuxedo
  • Age: Senior
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Long
Fluffy is a beautiful long hair, black and white female. She is a senior cat, and was previously owned by a senior citizen. Her owner had to go into a nursing home, and Fluffy was left at the owner's residence, cared for by care givers, for 8 months. They had hoped her owner would return home, but that was not the case. She was full of fleas, and had skin issues because of all the flea bites. We believe because she was used to her owner being with her continuously every day, she has had to learn to adjust to a new environment, and social skills. We do not have a lot of previous personality, or history on her.

Fluffy is VERY temperamental. She is not a lovey lap cat, but is finally allowing us to approach her without hissing, and even allowing us to brush her. She has come quite a ways from the kitty we first met. We have been working with her since March of 2017, and she still has a long way to go to learn to trust again, but every day we are making progress. She absolutely loves her treats!

She will require an experienced, patient, ONLY CAT, quiet home, adopter. She is going to require someone willing to invest time in her. She has been through an awful lot. We do not recommend her to be adopted into a home with other cats, small children or dogs. She was estimated to have been born March of 2006.

Fluffy was previously spayed and front declawed, we have tested her for feline leukemia, FIV, fully vaccinated her for rabies, distemper and leukemia, wormed and treated for fleas.

We do require a veterinarian reference prior to scheduling an adoption appointment. We do contact the reference to verify we are adopting our kitties into loving responsible forever homes. We also require a cat carrier be brought to the adoption appointment for secure transport home.

We are looking for a senior foster home for her. She is one of our Senior to Senior program available kitties.

About The Cat House - Feline Sanctuary, Inc.

About Our Shelter...

There are people in this world who love all different kinds of animals for different reasons. We love them all and then we are passionate about others. We are passionate about cats. There are next to no shelters in Ashland Ohio that take in cats and the population is out of control. So instead of sitting around and saying "someone should do something, we decided to do something" and built a sanctuary in 2005. We originally housed 60 homeless/abandoned cats then expanded in 2008 to house 90. At one point we had 110, added another apartment and got the numbers back down to 90. As the director, I supplement the money we need and do not receive in donation to keep us running. It is critical for us to receive outside financial support. We are a 501(c)(3) charity so any donations may be tax deductable. Make a difference in a life, donate today! 100% of your donation goes to the care of our cats, we have NO paid staff. Only a dedicated group of volunteers, myself included who consider this our God given talent and we serve gladly.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Call us at 419-289-3658 to schedule an appointment. Because our cats are not used to cages, they do not travel to adoption events. Caged cats become scared when people poke at them through the bars, how would you like that, so we want you to come and see them in their natural environment. We try to accommodate any timeframe within reason. Remember, many are in foster care so we need to arrange with the foster family for you to visit at their home.

Visit www.thecathousefelinesanctuary.org or www.petfinder.com (OH591) to see some of our cats today! We are also on facebook!

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption fees vary between adults and kittens. Our kittens come with an age appropriate program (provided through certificate) for our veterinarian only. We make sure all our cats receive a health screening, tested for feline aids and feline leukemia when appropriate ages, spayed/neutered, fully vaccinated for rabies (1yr), distemper and leukemia. We also worm and flea treat all of our cats, again all as age appropriate. We also treat any cat/kitten that comes to our sanctuary for any illnesses present, or that develop while in our care.

We require an appointment for adopting, as well as a verifiable veterinarian reference, which we require prior to scheduling an actual adoption visit. We contact your veterinarian reference to insure our cats/kittens are being placed in responsible, loving homes. Additionally, we require a cat carrier be brought to the adoption appointment for transport home. No laundry baskets, boxes, lap holding, is acceptable. No exceptions.

We have a private shelter address other than our mailing address which is featured on this site. Many of our cats are in foster care, so appropriate appointments need to be made with proper foster families. Our cats are featured on our website as well as petfinder.com and facebook.
