Cleopatra is a 2-year-old female DSH available for adoption at CCHS! Cleopatra was relinquished because she lived in a home with other cats and she didn't get along well with them, which is why she would do best as the only pet in the home. This cuddly girl loves attention and is a true lapcat! She can be a bit shy at first and is very sweet. She sleeps with a stuffed carrot. Come meet Cleopatra at CCHS!

Story
Leia is a one-year-old female DSH available for adoption at CCHS! Leia was relinquished due to exhibiting aggressive behaviors in her former home. However, after being given time and space, Leia has really blossomed in our shelter and is now friendly with staff and other cats. She would rub against her cage door, roll around in her cage, she enjoys belly rubs, rubs people with her cheeks, and slow blinks. She is not so fond of vet exams, but who would be? She can become overstimulated, which is why she cannot go to a home with children under the age of 10. She was also stressed by the dog in her former home, which is why she cannot go to a home with dogs. If you approach Leia, she will roll on her back for you and enjoy head scratches. Come meet this lover at CCHS! Leia is a STAFF FAVORITE pet! Here's what adoption staff member, Rita has to say about her: Leia has come a long way since entering our facility in January - she is living proof that a feisty, potential barn cat candidate can completely change how she feels about humans. She had been a spicy girl when she first arrived and was being considered for our working cat program, as staff were concerned that she would not be a candidate for adoption. However, a few weeks after her arrival, she began rubbing staff for pets, exposing her belly, headbutting, and otherwise soliciting attention. Whenever I enter her communal room, she hops down from her hidey box and immediately begins rubbing against my legs and rolling over on her back. She's such a sweetheart and I think she'd make a great companion for someone looking for a tiny black cat!
