Get to know me

I am a spayed female, black Domestic Shorthair (bonded with momma toes). 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! *a $20 license fee may applyOverstimulated Cats:Lyra, once she feels safe and comfortable, may reveal herself to be an 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 her daily to help get her 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!
