Other Pets at Shelter...
|Breed:||Domestic Shorthair||Color:||Gray Or Blue (Mostly)||Age:||Adult|
DOB: 6/19/2005 Smokie is an older girl. She is around eight. She is sweet, loving and affectionate. She is not a big fan of other cats or dogs, but has bonded with a cat at her foster home. She could use to shed a few pounds, but as she puts it, there is more for you to love. She likes to sleep under the covers, loves a warm lap, and will let anyone pet her. She is good with older children, as little ones tend to be a bit rough and she doesn't like to be tugged on. She has a great personality and loves to talk. She will hold a great conversation with you. She is also a great listener. If you are looking for someone to hold a conversation with that is an awesome listener and loves to give you her undivided attention than Smokie is your girl. This cat is eligible for Second Hand Purrs Young at Heart program. Anyone 55 years or older adopting a cat 5 years or older gets $10 off your adoption fee! Something old can still be something new! Smokie is sponored by Martha M.
Second Hand Purrs is dedicated to the betterment of misplaced felines in the greater Milwaukee area. We will strive to give feline owners and concerned citizens every option above and beyond abandonment and euthanasia.
We are progressing towards this mission by providing an additional resource to the community for unwanted felines. By providing shelter to animals, education regarding spaying and neutering and a genuine concern for helping animals and people alike, we will reach out to the community to make it a better place for everybody.

The first step in the adoption process is coming into the shelter to meet a cat. Once you have found the perfect match for you, you will fill out a one page adoption application. We will then do any necessary vet checks to make sure that if you have any existing pets that they are up to date on all vaccines and have been seen for regular vet care. Once you have been approved one of our volunteers will contact you to set up the adoption. The last step is one of our volunteers will bring the new member of your family to you and you will sign an adoption contract. We do not spay/neuter or give rabies to kittens under six months of age. If you adopt a kitten under six months you will be required to spay/neuter and give them their rabies at your expense. This will be in the adoption agreement. The adoption fees are $80 for one cat/kitten and $130 for two. All cats have been tested for feline leukemia and FIV, had their distemper booster, rabies if over six months, had fecal testing done and been de-wormed, they have been flea bathed, and have been spayed or neutered if over six months of age.
We are a non-profit no kill cat shelter serving the greater Milwaukee area.
