Facts about Bruja

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Black (All)
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
Hello there! My name is Bruja! I don’t know where I got that name. People tell me that “bruja” means “witch” in Spanish. On second thought, it could be because I cast a spell on you with how cute I am!

I’m an adorable little round black cat. As soon as you show an interest in me, I flop over on my back because I just cannot resist petting on my belly! When my belly is petted I can hardly control myself—I start purring right away and close my eyes and sometimes my little tongue even hangs out. It’s just too cute to resist! I’m a really confident cat and you can feel free to stroll right up to me when you come in to meet me. In fact, as soon as you walk up and touch me I start to purr because I’m so excited you’re here!

I’m a young cat, so I have lots of energy and love to give. That is, if you can get me to stop pushing my belly into your hands! At one point I was a barn cat, and then I was brought to MaxFund from another shelter, so the nice people here don’t know a whole lot about my past. What does it matter anyway? I’m looking forward to my future forever home and getting my belly rubbed by you every day!

You’ll find me here in the FIV room at MaxFund. I might be sleeping when you arrive, but don’t worry, I’ll warm up to you right away. It’s a little weird to get a good angle for belly petting on your lap so I really like to cozy up next to you. Why am I in the FIV room, you ask? Well, some cats have FIV and some don’t. FIV can be spread to other cats but only through a penetrating bite, and it is not transmittable to dogs or humans. I just need to stay away from smokers. I’m not sure how I’d feel around a dog or another cat (that already has FIV), but if you ask these nice people at MaxFund, I’m sure they could tell you. I’m such a robust little kitty and can still have a long, happy, healthy life with you even though I have FIV. If you have any questions about it, just ask!

When I take my cat naps I dream of meeting you. Won’t you please come in and make my dreams come true?

About MaxFund No-Kill Animal Shelter

About Our Shelter...

The MaxFund is a non-profit organization that was established in May of 1988 to provide medical care for injured pets with no known owners, and to seek out new homes for these animals once they have recovered. The MaxFund is a no-kill dog and cat shelter. MaxFund assists hundreds of people and animals each year by trying to make the correct match between owner and pet. MaxFund adopts our animals to Colorado residents only.

The MaxFund is a TRUE no-kill shelter. There is no pre-sorting of animals into "adoptable" and "non-adoptable" categories, discarding the so-called "unadoptable." The MaxFund takes every animal it has the space for. EVERY animal is kept until its owner is found or it is placed in a new adoptive home.

Our Adoption Process...

Adoption fees:

Cats: $25
Kittens (under 12 months): $75
Dogs: $125
Puppies (under 6 months) $200
Dogs over 8 years: $75

All applicants will be asked to submit the names and phone numbers of 3 personal references (relatives don't count), the name and phone number of your veterinarian if you have one, the name and phone number of your landlord (if applicable) and information about your current living situation. We also require that all immediate family members meet the animal prior to adoption to ensure compatibility. We would hate to adopt an animal into a family and later find out the dog doesn't like the kids or the husband doesn't like the animal, etc. You can print out an application on our website at

If you are interested in adopting a dog and have filled out an application, MaxFund will ask you to bring any currently owned dogs to the shelter for a “meet-and-greet” to ensure they can stand each other before they become a family. Because we examine adoption applications carefully and contact all references, same-day adoptions are extremely rare and should not be expected!
