Lorissa's Info...

I am already spayed, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, not good with kids, not good with dogs, and good with cats.

Lorissa's Story...
Hello, I'm Lorissa. Isn’t that a lovely name? It means “cheerful." I'm not sure it's easy to be cheerful living in a shelter but I'm a happy, mellow cat. One day, when I have a home and a family of my own, I know I will be a cheerful girl. And I know that I will be a great companion who will make you smile and feel cheer inside.

I came to MaxFund as a stray kitten. That was in 2006! Somehow I got passed over for the other kittens and grew up here. Why did I never find a home? Well I am shy and quiet. I am also so used to rejection that I don't even try to approach adopters. I find it's better to reject them than have them reject me, so I usually hang out in the cat trees and cubbyholes where no one sees me. It’s not that I don’t like people; it’s just that I don't try. But if you approach me, I am friendly and enjoy petting. I'm a calm, mellow cat that gets along with anyone. I'm a gentle girl and I just know that in a home, I will really reach my potential. I really warm up to people that are gentle and patient with me. I have boundless potential for love; I just need someone to love me back with all of their heart. Is that someone you?

I get along well with other cats, especially timid cats. I probably should not live with dogs or toddlers. The volunteers say they will miss me when (if!) I ever get a home. But they will be happy to say goodbye because they know I will blossom and be so delighted to be in my own home. Do come to the shelter and get to know me. I may be a late bloomer, but that just means that I have more love saved up for you!! I can’t wait to meet you and I hope to see you very soon.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Lorissa, a Denver Calico cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Calico for sale in Denver, or seeking a Calico cat from a breeder in Denver.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Denver already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Denver breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Calico breeders who help with Calico rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Denver paves the way for another one to be saved.
