Facts about Joy and Cupid

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Black (All)
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
JOY spend several years hiding in the back of her cage, unwilling to come out, hissing and slapping at anyone who tried to show her kindness. What a difference now! Change has come very gradually but now she purrs and likes to be patted. She even likes belly rubs. She is still not really confident around other cats, preferring to observe rather than join in the fun. Joy is about thirteen years old with glossy black fur. She actually comes out now and sits on the nearest cat tree, encouraged by her friend Cupid. She would be a great companion for an older person.

CUPID is one of the sweetest cats you will ever meet. She is not shy but somehow is often overlooked amongst all the other black cats in the room (even with those lovely green eyes). She never calls attention to herself but she really likes people. She loves to be patted and purrs with appreciation. She especially likes belly rubs and positively wiggles with delight. She gets along fine with other cats and has had several boyfriends. She is about twelve years old and should also be a great companion for an older person.

Joy and Cupid would make a wonderful pair. They don't ask for much except love and a little food. They can be adopted separately but it would be so much more fun to have them both. Come and see them !!

About Milford Humane Society

About Our Shelter...

The Milford Humane Society is an all-volunteer, non-profit, no-kill shelter for stray and abandoned cats. First organized in September 1990 to fill a need in the community, we help to care and find homes for the ever-increasing number of homeless cats that exist in the local area. These cats survive by scrounging in dumpsters for food and finding shelter wherever possible.

Most of our cats are housed at the shelter. Others are cared for in foster homes until space becomes available at the shelter. Admission to the shelter is not based solely on adoptability but on need. The motto of the Milford Humane Society is to share the gift of unconditional love with as many cats and kittens as possible.

Our Adoption Process...

All cats and kittens are spayed or neutered, have tested negative for FelV and FIV (unless otherwise noted), have distemper and rabies shots, and are microchipped prior to being adopted.

Certain requirements must be met to adopt a cat, such as the cats must be kept indoors, and never de-clawed. Potential adopters must provide their landlord's written permission to have cats on their property. There is an adoption fee.
