Simon and Mrs. Kitty

Both of these wonderful cats are looking for a loving home together only. (We will not separate this couple!) If you are interested in adopting them, please call the shelter at 507-644-3853. They have been moved to a foster home, so are not available at the shelter at this time for visits. Visits can be arranged through the shelter.

All cats adopted through the shelter come up to date on their vaccinations, spayed/neutered, wormed, treated with a topical flea/ear mite preventative (Revolution), tested negative for feline leukemia, have had a medicated/antifungal bath, and have had a negative fecal float to check for internal parasites.

More about Simon:

SIMON! Loves the Elderly!

Introducing Simon, a very handsome Seal Lynx Point Siamese Mix, who LOVES elderly people! The other thing this charming kitty loves is his kitty soul mate, “Miss Kitty”. Before you read on, please understand that as much as these two wonderful cats are bonded together and are looking for a home together, they don’t only have eyes for each other. Simon and Miss Kitty really adore their special people too! They especially adore elderly people!

Simon is a 12 year young Siamese mix who has purrsonality plus! He’s extremely social, and will be in your face to remind you that he needs his lovey dovey time with you! If your cell phone turns up missing, this silly kitty could be the culprit! He’s a very entertaining and affectionate companion who you will fall head over heels in love with in no time at all! Simon has a lovely short coat, and also is front declawed. He is a big cat who loves to be on someone’s lap and especially enjoys snuggling in bed with his favorite person or people at night. He is a youngster at heart and enjoys playing with the laser light and any other fun kitty toys you may have! He has excellent litter box habits; he’s a very clean boy. Simon tells us that he’d prefer not to live with dogs or young children. If you asked him what his perfect home would be, he would tell you that he’d prefer to live with his BFF, Miss Kitty, and is happiest when his person or people are at home with him. He’s a very social kitty.

Simon and Miss Kitty lost the home they shared almost their entire lives so far, when their beloved owners were no longer able to care for them. This awesome bonded pair wants to find that same kind of happiness again. They’re hoping for a loving, quiet home with people who will be around the majority of the time for them. What their owners will receive in return is unconditional love and companionship, not to mention appreciation for giving them back the lives they miss so dearly since their original owners had to give them up.

Simon is neutered and completely vetted. He is a healthy boy, and is just a great cat to have around. Simon hopes you find him and Miss Kitty Soon. While they appreciate all of the wonderful care they are receiving at the shelter, they know that there’s really no place like home. Please help them find their forever home so they can have a happily ever after!

Ember

Ember is looking for a home! This little kittens was found stuck in a tree in Franklin, and as no one has come to claim this super friendly and outgoing little fellow, he is now looking for a new family to call his own! Ember is unusually sweet and purry, even for a kitten. He loves people and attention! He came in underweight and wormy, but is already putting on weight and will be a plump little furball in no time.

As a part of his adoption fee, he will be neutered when old enough and up to date on his shots. He has also been wormed, including preventatives for coccidia and giardia, had a fecal float performed to check for internal parasite, been given a routine medicated/ antifungal bath, and treated topically with a flea/ear mite preventative (Revolution.) He has tested feline leukemia negative.

If you are interested in adopting, please call the shelter at 507-644-3853, or else stop in during open hours, no appointment necessary, M-F 3-7 and Sat 11-1. Even if you aren’t looking to adopt, feel free to stop in anytime during open hours to play with the critters; they love it!

Dorian

Dorian needs a new home! Dorian is a super friendly and chill summer 2018 kitten who just wants to be loved on and give the loves right back. He is a very handsome brown tabby with rather distinctive markings, a mix of spots and stripes. He also has a permanent “pout” to his lips, as it appears sometime in the past he sustained an injury that partially tore his bottom lip away from the gums. The injury was already healed by the time he arrived, but his lip will always hang out a little bit as a result. It doesn’t affect him at all, though. He was found abandoned in a house, left behind by his family. Fortunately, he was found before he was more than a little thin and wormy. He has already filled out quite a bit since he arrived and is looking great! Now he just wants a family that will keep him and cherish him for the amazing kitten that he is. Are you that happy ending for Dorian?

As a part of his adoption fee, he will be neutered and up to date on his shots. He has also been wormed, including preventative for coccidia and giardia, had a fecal float performed to check for internal parasite, been given a routine antifungal bath, and treated topically with a flea/ear mite preventative (Revolution.) He has tested feline leukemia negative.

If you are interested in adopting, please call the shelter at 507-644-3853, or else stop in during open hours, no appointment necessary, M-F 3-7 and Sat 11-1. Even if you aren’t looking to adopt, feel free to stop in anytime during open hours to play with the critters; they love it!

Victoria

Victoria

Now that her one and only daughter Una has gone to her new home, Tori (Victoria) is ready to find a home herself. This sweet as sugar young longhaired kitty is probably less than a year old. She is very social and outgoing; she loves attention. She would have her silky soft fur stroked all day if you were willing. She also loves to play; she is such a character! Though not overly rambunctious about it like many male kitties. She just has her shorter “teenage” coat right now; kitties with a coat like hers tend to become regular marshmallows of fluff around the time their adult coats come in at the age of 2 years old. She is gorgeous now; she will be stunning in not too long!

As a part of her adoption fee, she will be spayed and up to date on her shots. She has also been wormed, including preventative for coccidia and giardia, had a fecal float performed to check for internal parasite, been given a routine antifungal bath, and treated topically with a flea/ear mite preventative (Revolution.) She has tested feline leukemia negative.

Come meet her. You’ll have trouble leaving her behind! If you are interested in adopting, please call the shelter at 507-644-3853, or else stop in during open hours, no appointment necessary, M-F 3-7 and Sat 11-1. Even if you aren’t looking to adopt, feel free to stop in anytime during open hours to play with the critters; they love it!

Appx. birthday: Aug. 10, 2018.

Yelp was so named for how vocal he was on arrival, crying for the food he had apparently been lacking on the streets. He was quite skinny and wormy on arrival! He has filled out nicely now, and is quite quiet and content. He is so friendly! He loves to play. He is such a social little creature!

As a part of his adoption fee, he will be neutered when old enough and up to date on his shots. He has also been wormed, including preventative for coccidia and giardia, had a fecal float performed to check for internal parasite, been given a routine antifungal bath, and treated topically with a flea/ear mite preventative (Revolution.)

The Hay Kittens: Timothy, Meadow, Brome, Orchard, Clover, Bermuda, Barley, and Alfalfa. ***Adopted! Brome, Bermuda, Barley, Meadow and Timothy***

Someone bought a load of hay that came with eight little surprises… three week old kittens! They look to be from two different litters. As the mothers were feral (according to the seller of the hay), and their nest had been taken away, and their kittens gone for several days, the odds were poor of them taking their kittens back again. So for the kittens’ safety they ended up at the shelter. They are currently being bottle fed.

Feel free to stop by the shelter and watch some kitten tv! They are residing in Rm. 1, which is the room with the big windows for easy viewing. Come by and watch them anytime the shelter is open! We would like them to be a little older before they can be played with, though. Watch for updates!

The kittens were born around Sept. 1, 2018. They will be ready for homes one about Oct. 27, 2018.

Update Oct. 12, 2018: We are now taking applications for the kittens! If you are interested in adopting, please call the shelter at 507-644-3853, or else stop in during open hours, no appointment necessary: 3-7 M-F and Sat 11-1.

Update Oct. 27, 2018. They are old enough to have visitors now! So stop on in and meet them. The shelter is open M-F 3-7 and Sat 11-1. Feel free to call with adoption inquiries at 507-644-3853. Even if you aren’t looking to adopt, feel free to stop in during open hours, no appointment necessary, and play with the critters while they wait for forever homes.

All the kittens have been wormed, including preventatives for coccidia and giardia, treated with a topical flea/ear mite preventative (Revolution), given and antifungal bath, had a negative fecal float to test for internal parasites, and have tested negative for feline leukemia. They will have their age appropriate shots as part of the adoption fee, and the eventual spay/neuter when old enough. (You will need to bring them back when old enough to the vet we partner with, Riverside in Redwood Falls.)

Autumn

Autumn needs a home! This sweet and playful kitten is ready for a family to call her own. Her antics are adorable! (I think you get the idea even just looking at her goofing off for her photos.) She was born appx. July 20, 2018.

She has already received her first shot, has been wormed, treated with ant-giardia and anti-coccidia medications as preventatives, treated topically with a flea/ear mite preventative (Revolution), and has had an antifungal bath, all as a part of her adoption fee. She has been tested negative for feline leukemia. The eventual spay/neuter is also included in the adoption fee, but the kitten will need to be brought back to the vet we use when old enough.

If you are interested in adopting a kitten, please call the shelter at 507-644-3853, or else stop in during open hours, M-F 3-7 and Sat 11-1. Even if you aren’t looking to adopt, feel free to stop in and play with the kittens during open hours, no appointment necessary.
