My story

Hi there, my name is May!  I’m a lovable senior lady looking for a home with my sister Lucy.  We’ve had homes before, but they never seem to last.  And it’s not because we had bad humans, our humans were wonderful.  We loved them, and they loved us.  But somehow the good times never seemed to last.  The one thing we have always had is each other, and even when we don’t hang out all the time, I know Lucy will always be with me.  She’s my rock.  But it would be nice to have a home again, and a lap to cuddle up in.  I love sitting in laps.  Lucy doesn’t spend as much time in laps, she’s too busy talking and getting into everything.  But, that’s part of what everyone loves about her.  I admit, we’re not as young as we used to be, and both of us have a health issue or two, but we’re planning to live for a long time yet!  Hopefully with someone who loves us.  Do you think you could be that person?  Come in and meet us today!

May and Lucy are part of our Perpet-U-Care program.  Please click the link to find out more:  http://www.catcaresociety.org/adoptions/perpet-u-care

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
