Chica

Chica

Chica needs a new home! Chica is a lovely spayed female shorthair kitty who is front declawed, She was born appx. 2013. She is a quiet sort of kitty, and very, very sweet; she loves to be pet. She will lay and be pet as long as you will have her. She is fine with other cats, and tolerated the two small dogs she was exposed to. She would likely do best in a quieter home without rambunctious small children.

Chica is front declawed and spayed. As a part of her adoption fee, she has also been dewormed, treated preventatively for giardia and coccidia, given a topical flea/ear mite preventative (Revolution), tested negative for feline leukemia, had a negative fecal float (tests for internal parasites), and has had an antifungal bath. She will also come up to date on her vaccines.

Tinker

Tinker

Tinker needs a new home! This butterball weighs in at 19 lbs. Can you tell he was once the pampered house pet of a sweet retired lady? She sadly passed away, and now Tinker needs a new person to spoil him. He was gotten as a kitten and kept as a pampered house pet all his life. He is used to the good life! He’s got a lot of character and is quite outspoken. While he doesn’t like to be picked up, he does love to be pet and will lay beside you to get as much affection as you will give. He is fine with other cats, though doesn’t seem to know about dogs so much. He might get used to them with time. He was born on August 21, 2012, so will shortly be turning 6 years old.

Tinker has been neutered and will come up to date on his vaccines as a part of his adoption fee. He has been treated topically with a flea/ear mite preventative (Revolution), had a negative fecal float to check for internal parasites, and is feline leukemia negative.

Star

Star,

Star is ready for a home! Her kittens are weaned, she has been spayed, and now she is just waiting for a family of her own. Star is a lovely longhaired lynx point Siamese mix that was originally brought to the shelter nursing 6 kittens. She also came in with a very bad ear mite infestation which had caused a terrible ear infection and a hematoma in here left ear. The hematoma had already collapsed her ear by the time she got to the shelter, resulting in a cauliflower ear. Her ear is all there; the cartilage has just been collapsed. Her infection is gone and she is feeling good these days. Star is a quieter cat that would do best in a mature household. She is fine with other cats and is currently sharing a room with several.

Star has been spayed and is up to date on her vaccines. She has been wormed, treated topically with a flea/ear mite preventative (Revolution), had an antifungal bath, had a negative fecal float to check for internal parasites, and is feline leukemia negative.

If you are interested in adopting Star, please call the shelter at 507-644-3853, or stop in during open hours and meet her, no appointment necessary. (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 critters here; they love it!

Naya

Naya

Naya needs a new home! Naya is a sweet and happy 9 lb. Pomeranian. When she sees someone she loves, she does the sweetest little happy dance and has the hugest smile! Can you imagine coming home to that everyday? She is extremely cuddly and just loves spending time with those she knows and trusts. She is a bit nervous when it comes to strangers and too many goings on; too much activity and noise scare her. She is great with other dogs. She seems fine with cats once she knows them, though might try to sass them a bit at first.

Naya was just spayed and will come up to date on her vaccinations as a part of her adoption fee. She has also been wormed and treated topically with a flea/mite preventative.

Miss Kitty

Miss Kitty

Miss Kitty has been at the shelter for six years now, almost since its opening. Once she knows and trusts you, she is extremely affectionate. She will even request that you pick her up and hold her. She wants to love and be loved. We have grown quite fond of her here at the shelter; she is practically our mascot by now! She has a home here as long as she needs. However, we would love to see her get a home at long last, a family to call her own, that can give her the love and individual attention that we just can’t give her in the abundance she deserves.

So why is she still here? Before she came to the shelter, she was allowed to be teased by children until she had enough and retaliated. (Which is why she ended up here.) She was for years very defensive around people, assuming they too wanted to be mean to her. She is still leery about anyone touching her tail, which was pulled frequently, but will let most new people pet her these days without running off. And once she knows you, she even requests affection! She has taken a long time to start to trust people again. But she has opened up so much!
She still doesn’t entirely trust children, so would be best in a mature home only. She also hates dogs; she will attack dogs. (Though she seems to have made an exception for one little terrier mix, so long as he doesn’t mess with her.) Other cats she is fine with.

Miss Kitty is about nine years old and pretty mild mannered these days. She is a lovely blue tabby with big yellow eyes. She has been spayed and is up to date on her vaccinations. She is also current on wormings, including preventatives for coccidia and giardia, and is kept up to date on her topical flea/ear mite preventative (Revolution.)

If you think you are the right home for Miss Kitty, please contact 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, visitors are always welcome to come play with the critters during open hours, no appointment necessary.

Liberty

Liberty

Liberty

Liberty as a kitten, taken June 22, 2016.

Liberty is second only to Miss Kitty for longevity of stay here. She arrived at the shelter as an 8 week old kitten about two years ago. She is somewhat shy of strangers at first, but is a very gentle, sweet, loving creature once she warms up to you. Liberty is a special needs cat; she has a very sensitive digestive tract. She is a very sensitive cat herself, and stress can induce loose stools in her. So can the wrong kind of food. We have been managing her with a Sensitive Stomach formula cat food and daily probiotics, which have allowed her poo to remain reasonably formed. She does consistently use the litterbox here at the shelter.

Liberty needs a quiet, gentle home, and in return she will give her adopter so much sweet affection. She enjoys the company of other mild-mannered cats. We often see her cuddled up with our other black kitty who shares a room with her, Snowflake. Noisy dogs stress her out, though she may adapt to a quiet, low key dog. She would likely do best in a mature, quiet home where she will be treated gently.

Liberty has been spayed and is up to date on her vaccinations. She is tested negative for feline leukemia. She is also up to date on her wormings, including preventatives for coccidia and giardia. She has had a negative fecal float to test for internal parasites, has been given an antifungal bath, and is kept up to date on her topical flea/ear mite preventative (Revolution.)

If you are interested in adopting Liberty, please call the shelter at 507-644-3853, or 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 during open hours, no appointment necessary, and give the critters some attention.
