My story

Cleo was extremely shy and scared in the beginning but thanks to the love and patience of her foster mom, Cleo is now much more comfortable around people. She likes tuna, hanging out in her cat tree, bird watching, playing with strings, and meowing for food. She tolerates pets while eating and doesn't like to be picked up.

It takes time for Cleo to adjust to a new environment, but once she does, she is a great companion! We are looking for an experienced and patient adopter for Cleo who can continue to work with her.

Go meet their pets

All of our pets for adoption are in foster homes. You must fill out an adoption application before being considered for adoption. Once your application is received, the foster parent will contact you to discuss whether the animal would be a good fit for your home and set up a meet between your family and the pet. We also house several cats in our adoption center at the Cambridge PetSmart. Stop by to play with them Monday-Friday from 5pm-8pm and all day Saturday and Sunday!
