Meow! My name is Cieran
|Breed:||Domestic Shorthair||Color:||Black (All)||Age:||Young|
I am already neutered and up to date with shots.
Cieran was one of 13 kittens abandoned in two carriers in June, when they were all just 6-8 weeks old. They were left with a note saying they were found on a foreclosed property, and they were all somehow related. They were all shy initially, but most warmed up pretty quickly. Cieran, however, remained frightened, and less willing to trust people. While his brothers and sisters were quickly adopted, he hid in cat trees and corners, running from outstretched hands and loud boots. Luckily, he found a friend in similarly shy Mrs. Norris. The two of them are constantly found cuddling, and we're so glad they've found some comfort in each other. Cieran and Mrs. Norris were briefly adopted together in October, returned after only a few days when the adopter realized he wasn't ready to commit to two very shy kittens. Cieran needs a very special adopter who understands they may never have a cuddly, affectionate relationship with Cieran. He has made little progress here, and we are worried his shyness will keep him from ever being adopted. That said, we do think that in a stable home with open hearted, patient people would do so much good for him. It's our dream that Fracas, Cieran, and Mrs. Norris all be adopted together; however, we realize that's a pretty tall order. We just hope all three find loving homes with people who give them the space and compassion they need, and another feline buddy to help them feel secure. Cieran was born in April of 2012.

Tree House is a humane organization that promotes the inherent value of every animal and strives to educate the public about proper and responsible animal care, with a focus on the care and placement of stray cats with special physical and emotional needs. We are committed to finding every healthy and treatable animal a home.
Tree House was founded in 1971 and since that time we have expanded and enhanced our programs and services to become the largest, no-kill, cageless shelter for sick, injured, abused and neglected cats in the Chicagoland area. To date we have found homes for nearly 14,000 cats. In addition to our focus on the rehabilitation and adoption of stray cats, we offer many other valuable programs and services, including our Free Spay/Neuter Program, Pet Loss Grief Support Group, Humane Investigations Team, Youth Volunteer Program, Animal-Assisted Therapy, Behavior Hotline, Pet Food Pantry, and Education Outreach Program.
At Tree House, trained adoption counselors interview prospective adopters to understand their needs, and then adopters are escorted to the Adoption Floor to choose their future friend. Adopters are encouraged to take as much time as they need to find a cat. All adoption applications stay on file for three months so please don't feel that you need to rush to choose a companion cat right away.
Your adoption fee of $85 covers the cost of your cat's care at Tree House including: spay or neuter, deworming, flea treatment, FIV and FeLV testing, AVID microchip, veterinary examination, and all necessary vaccinations. We also give a 30-day health guarantee on all of our adoptions.
* A photo I.D.
* A second I.D. with current address and phone number (we recommend a phone bill).
* If you rent, we need your landlord's name and phone number, or a copy of your lease stating that you are allowed to have cats.
* All children under 12 in the household are required to be present for the entire adoption process.
