While fewer U.S. households have cats, there are actually more cats than dogs occupying pet-owning homes. There’s a different mystique with cats, even little kittens can turn aloof as they get older. Whatever their personality, there are no two alike.
The cats represented here are ones that, for whatever reason, have been over looked, or as older cats, don’t draw the attention of potential adopters in the same way that cute kittens do. A couple need a special diet, and at Lifeline, there’s a whole group that are FIV positive cats which require they go to a one cat household (not to be confused with FeLV, feline leukemia). They are no less deserving of a loving forever home. A cat that has been at a shelter for weeks, months or years may need you more than you know at the time they are adopted.
There are several black cats at each shelter and these, too, suffer from misperceptions and prejudices and can be some of the last to be adopted. Currently, the Kansas Humane Society has about 55 cats and kittens for adoption while Lifeline Animal Plaement & Protection no kill shelter has about 150 cats and kittens waiting for forever homes.
Lifeline Animal Placement & Protection, W. 45th St. N. just east of Arkansas:
Coco Moco is a senior, medium size cat came to Lifeline with her buddy Casper after their owner passed away and the family did not want to keep these lovable cats. Coco has a sweet and charming dispositioin. She can be shy at first, but warms up to people quickly. Once she knows you, she will “talk” to you and nuzzle you for attention.
Casper, also a senior, grew up with Coco, and he is also a “talker.” The more attention you give him, the louder he purrs.He gets along well with other cats and loves to be brushed. A medium size cat, it would be nice if he and Coco Moco could be adopted together, but they can be adopted separately.
Angus is a big grey Tabby who loves attention and is a real lap cat. If you ignore him, he will play with your shoelaces or tap on your leg with his paw to get your attention. He will hold your “paw” when you talk to him. Angus requires a special urinary tract food that is easy to purchase at the pet store or your vet.
Briley is a very big orange and white long-haired cat. He is also an older cat with a very aloof presence. His markings can make him look mad, but once he gets to know you, he loves to play and be cuddled. His thick, long fur requires regular brushing to keep it from matting and he is on a special diet. He is not wildly happy about being with so many other cats, as he would like to be someone’s one and only.
To find out more about these or any of the cats at Lifeline Animal Placement shelter, call 316-807-8473 or 316-207-7977 or email email@example.com.
Kansas Humane Society, Hillside and K-96:
Antonio is a good-sized all white cat who is still part kitten at only two years old. He will want to help you in whatever you’re doing, like walking across the computer keyboard, or holding down the pages of the book your’e reading. As you move from room to room, you’ll find Antonio right there to help make your chores more fun. It’s not known if he has shared a home with other animals. He has been at the KHS shelter since Sept. 14 waiting for his forever home. As an adult cat, Antonio’s adoption fee is your choice.
Robbie is currently in foster care for KHS, so you’ll need to make an appointment to meet this handsome Snowshoe mix. He is 11 pounds of love that has many years to give the person who takes him home. At three years old, he likes to play, but he can settle down and snuggle in, too.
There are two Juniors at the KHS right now, so be sure to note their ID number when you visit or call for more information.
Junior the Tabby is large at nine pounds. He is older at seven, but has many more years to bring his feline-ality to a forever home. He has lived with other animals and children in his previous life. As he is behind the scenes, you will need to ask for thim at the desk so they can bring Junior out to meet you. He is ID#11139890. You can pick your adoption fee since Junior is over 9 months old.
Junior the orange and white short-haired cat is young at two years old. He is the kind of cat that will shadow you wherever you go and want to be part of what you are doing. There isn’t much known about his previous life, but Junior is looking towards a future with a forever home to call his own. He’s a recent arrival at the KHS and is also behind the scenes. He is ID #14124436. This junior also qualifies for the waived adoption fee, but a donation to the KHS to help cover the cost of his vetting and care at the shelter.
You can put any of the cats at the KHS on “hold” for a $30 fee. Just call 316-524-9196 to ask them to hold one of these or any of the adoptable cats and kittens.
