My story

Sofia is ready for her forever home!  Sofia is a sweet young cat who is looking for a quiet and safe home to settle into.  Sofia originally came to Cat Care Society after she was left abandoned in an apartment building.  She was only about 9 months old, and very nervous.  She was adopted quickly and went to a home a nice human.  About 7 months after being adopted her new human called, saying that Sofia was having behavioral issues, and was becoming aggressive.  She worked extensively with CCS, her veterinarian, and an animal communicator, but Sofia couldn’t adjust.  Working with Sofia she needs a household that is quiet, has very little stress, and doesn’t have any strong odors.  She is exceptionally sensitive to smells and loud noises, and absolutely hates yelling.  She is also very empathetic to her human, so if her human is stressed or upset, Sofia becomes anxious and reactive.  Sofia would do well as an only cat, with a single person or a couple with no children.  The home she goes to will need to be non-smoking, with no strong perfumes or scented litter.  She would do really well with a nice, quiet, couple (or single) who like to give lots of love and head scratches.  Once she has found a human she likes, she gets very attached, and she will make a wonderful companion.

Anyone interested in Sofia will need to visit two to three times, and will need to be able to pet and interact with multiple times before we will allow her to be adopted.  Her adoption will need to be approved by our Shelter Manager, as well as our adoption staff.

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

If you are looking to adopt a cat, we encourage you to visit our shelter. There are no scheduled appointments at CCS – simply drop by during the shelter’s open hours. When you visit the shelter seeking to adopt, a Shelter Assistant will greet you. They will ask you to fill out a “Cat Finder Assistance” form that gives an idea of the type of cat you are seeking. If you have children, we require they visit the shelter with you. Also, renters should come prepared with a copy of their lease indicating cats are allowed, or their landlord’s phone number so we can verify pet allowances. Once you have found a cat that suits you – which may take more than one visit – a Shelter Assistant will have you fill out an adoption application. You will then go through the adoption process to learn more about the specific cat you have chosen and to review the adoption contract. Adoption paperwork usually takes about 30-45 minutes to complete and review. They have undergone a physical examination upon entry into the shelter, and Dewormer and FVRCP vaccinations. If they are over 4 months they will have received a rabies vaccination. If they are over 12 weeks, they will have been snap tested for FIV, FeLV and Heartworm. All adoptable cats and kittens have been spayed or neutered. All cats and kittens leave the shelter with a 14-day health care assistance plan, a collar and ID tag, and an implanted microchip used to help return lost pets to their homes. We also provide a cardboard carrier to take the cat or kitten home. Adoption Fees Our adoption fees are: $150 Adoption fee for one kitten $ 75 Adult cats 6 months and older $50 FeLV and FIV cats Senior for Senior Free adoption for people 60 years or older who adopt a cat 10 years or older
