Facts about Ophelia

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Tortoiseshell
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
Ophelia is a female smoked torbie and white domestic shorthair, 1.5 years old as of October 2012.

This beautiful smoke torbie might be petite, but she’s far from demure! Ophelia is a very energetic girl who loves to play with any toy she can get her paws on, as well as wrestle and play “tag” with her litter mates. She is sweet-natured and loves to be petted and held as well. Ophelia has lived at Animal House since she was a newborn, and is ready to add a spark of energy and excitement to a home of her very own!

About Animal House Cat Rescue and Adoption Center

About Our Shelter...

Animal House Cat Rescue and Adoption Center is an independent, nonprofit, stray cat rescue organization. We’re dedicated to creating and maintaining an environmentally friendly, no-kill shelter and adoption center for the homeless cats and kittens of St. Louis City.
Animal House opened in August of 2010, with the arrival of dozens of cats and kittens from the city’s overcrowded animal control facility. The mayor of St. Louis had shuttered the decrepit animal control building just weeks earlier. Had it not been for Animal House, those cats and kittens would have had nowhere to go.
Besides being adoption personnel, the Animal House staff are part of a team that responds to calls from St. Louis residents about cats in need. We provide counseling, referrals and general information to the callers, and shelter and medical care for the cats.
All the cats at Animal House come to us from challenging circumstances that include neglect, abandonment and illness. Despite their sad histories, we provide each kitty with nutritious food, medical care, socialization, individual attention, lots of love and our very best effort to find each a loving, forever home.
The Animal House building is large, airy, inviting and – to the delight of our residents – exclusive to felines. Most days, there are at least 300 happy, healthy cats and kittens in our building, waiting to be adopted. We’re almost certain we have the perfect feline friend (or two) for you.
