Get to know me

I am a spayed female, gray Domestic Shorthair (please ask to visit with me!). I am not declawed. Every week, our staff picks special cats in need of loving homes. And the best part? Their adoption fee is waived!** needs a quiet home without younger children **** will need a lot of patience and time to warm up **Absol will need ample time to adjust to her new home. Placing her in her own sanctuary room with food, water, bed, toys, scratching post, and litter box will help her adapt. This room should be quiet with hiding places as well as some perches. Once Absol has acclimated to the room a slow introduction to other animals and the rest of the house can begin. She will require a lot of patience!...and once Absol gets used to her new environment, she will likely be more confident and you might see new behaviors! See below:Overstimulated Cats:Absol is a high-energy (overstimulated) cat. Overstimulated cats can often play rough, nip, scratch, and become over-the-top way too quickly and sometimes these behaviors happen because of too much petting or attention. Most of the time these cats are very friendly, affectionate, and love attention however, they can strike out in a short amount of time. Learn to know when your cat is becoming overstimulated and stop petting them as soon as the behaviors begin. It is best to not encourage overstimulated behaviors so you can teach your cat how to accept attention appropriately. Use toys such as feather wands, balls, and toy mice to help distract your cat. Also have several interactive play sessions with him daily to help get his energy out!

We do our best to update our adoptable pet listing as quickly as possible. However, there may be times when an animal is not at the shelter. Thank you for your understanding!
