My story

My owner described my personality as: Playful, affectionate, and cuddly. I am a high energy cat who loves to play. My family had to relinquish me because my mom got married and the new human children in the home were too rough with me and scared me.With other cats I am: UnknownWith dogs I am: I like them and will play with themWith children I am: I may be okay with kind children with prior cat experience, but may prefer a home with no/older children.I have the following special needs:All cats are tested for Feline Leukemia and Feline Immunodeficiency Virus, and cats over 6 months of age are tested for heartworms. They are also tested for intestinal parasites and receive routine dewormings. Cats are vaccinated against distemper and rabies, receive a flea preventative, are spayed/neutered before adoption, and have a microchip. Adoption fees include the initial automated registration of the microchip at the time of adoption.

Additional adoption info

The Ames Animal Shelter's adoption process is all about ensuring the right match for the benefit of both the people and the animal. We use our application screening process to pre-approve applicants for general adoption. This gets all the boring paperwork stuff out of the way so when you come in to the shelter we can focus with you on finding the perfect furry friend match. Our applications are not a simple pass/fail process, but instead are an opportunity for us to gather information on the needs of your family and the situation you'll be bringing an animal into.
