Lizzy's Info...

I am already spayed, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, and good with cats.

Lizzy's Story...
Hello, I'm Lizzy! I'm a tidy brown tabby girl with white bib and mittens, built just like the stocky round American Shorthair cats, though I'm not a fussy purebred. I have the most beautiful green eyes.

I came from a very abusive guardian, so I've had to re-learn how to trust people again. In spite of all that, I'm a very loving little gal, ready to climb on your lap and purr my whiskers off as soon as I learn that you're kind and friendly too.

With a quiet safe home, I promise I'll show you how I've learned to flirt to get my tummy rubs and petting. I still love to play like a kitten, especially with a stick under a rug. I do well with other nice cats (no dogs please) as long as they are kind and mild like me.

I can be adopted for $95, which includes my negative virus testing, spay, microchip, vaccinations (except rabies), food & litter starter kit, a month of free insurance and a free vet visit voucher. Don't forget, if Miller gets adopted with me, he gets to come home for half off! Drop by and let me show you what a sweetheart I am!

About Happy Cats Haven

About Our Shelter...

Because we know and love each and every cat and kitten here, we can help you make the best possible choice when it comes to finding a cat. Our home-like setting not only puts the cats at ease, but it provides a pleasant, relaxing environment for you to choose your next best cat ever. A good match means a wonderful forever home so your kitten or cat never has to see the inside of a shelter again. We also provide lifelong behavior care and referrals to keep our cats and kittens at hom.

We make every effort to keep up with current feline research and best practices in order to keep our standards high and our cats and kittens healthy and happy.

What makes HCH different from other shelters?

A purr is more subtle than a wagging tail. Cats sometimes need a little help to bring out their best sides, especially with the trauma of losing their homes. We focus on the special needs of cats in shelters, creating a cage-free feline-friendly space that best promotes each cat’s individual personality. This also makes us more human friendly too, giving you a comfortable environment to make your best match possible.

Why open another cat shelter?

Around 9 out of 10 dogs in shelters find a home. For cats, it’s only 1 out of 3. We’d like to put a dent in those horrific statistics by showing people what great companions cats can be. We also spay and neuter each cat to help reduce the kitten explosion that leads to nearly 5,000 cat and kitten euthanasias a year in the Pikes Peak region alone.
