We have a group of cats we call the Forget Me Nots. Their early lives were hard, with little or no exposure to loving, caring people. We also have a group of dedicated volunteers who spend time with them to show them the upside of human contact and bless their haerts, the cats gradually respond. These cats - of varying ages and histories - come in all sizes, and colors. They are part a group of cats who live together on the third floor of the shelter. They enjoy the company of other cats and sometimes have a special buddy here at the shelter. The place these guys and gals would like to call home will be a place that includes other cats - maybe even their buddy. They would probably be happier with an all adult family who will give them time to adjust at their own pace to their new surroundings and who will spend lots of time with them without trying to get too close too soon - and who won't be put-off by the fact that they may hide under the bed or in the closet for a month! Once they get past the hiding stage the progress will come but slowly. Many of these cats will form a very close bond with one or 2 people but will not be comfortable with a large number of people. We don't know if they have had any experience with dogs but we will not rule out a home with a gentle, cat friendly dog. If you would like to consider one of these very special kitties, please ask to see Angel, Belle, Chelsea, Claws, Dutch, Hamlet, Harry (he has buddies), Jazzy, Liberty, Mooney, Ms. Kermit, Opal, Phanty, Pita, Regina, Renee, Robin, Sally, Sam, Sarah, Sebastian, Tati, or Whitey.
If your heart and your home as room for one of these special cats, please come to the shelter and visit them!
