Putting the spotlight on some of our special needs animals at the shelter. These are some cats at the shelter that would require special homes and special attention.
Pearl is a beautiful cat that is almost completely blind and deaf. Once she gets to know her surroundings she does very well. Obviously she needs to be an indoor cat and would probably do best as an only pet. She is up in age so she is not as active as some other cats. She also needs a special set up for her litter box.
Miss Kitty is a very loving cat…in the right situation. She does not do well with dogs, kids and some other cats. She would do best as an only pet in an adult only household where the owners would be satisfied with affection when she seeks it.
If you think you have a home that would suit one of these cats or you have questions, please contact the shelter during our regular hours or message us on our website or Facebook.
We have a very sweet special needs cat who is looking for a new home! Meet Shadow, one of the sweetest, most mellow cats you will meet, who also happens to have some stunning aqua colored eyes. He is around 2-3 years old. He is such a love! He adores being pet and loved on. He gets along great with dogs too.
What makes him special needs is that he tested positive for Feline Leukemia, an immunodeficient virus that is lifelong. It means he will always be more susceptible to illness. However, as an indoor only pet, and with good care, we know of a rescue that has consistently seen these cats live for 10 or more years. The few we have at the shelter have made wonderful turnarounds with proper care. He does need to have a home with no other cats unless they too are FelV+, as it is infectious through biting. It is NOT contagious to humans or dogs, or anything else except cats. And of course, the shelter is always willing to provide continued support.
