NOTE: Simon, Mr. Fluffy, Hazel, Lexi, and Stitches are NOT available for public viewing. If you are interested in anyone from this group, please submit an application using the link in their bios. Doing so is the ONLY way to potentially be selected for a meet and greet.
This feisty young female has come leaps and bounds from when we first met her! Stitches is looking for the perfect forever home who will be patient with her as she continues to come out of her shell. She enjoys meowing the song of her people at staff and volunteers when they come to visit, and will absolutely poke her nose where it shouldn’t be. She can be standoffish and shy, but given her semi-feral background, this is to be expected. A quiet home would be ideal for increasing her exposure to humans, and it would be best if she were the only animal in the home. We’ve noted that Stitches can be territorial at times, particularly around new faces and younger cats.
Thank you for your interest in adopting! Do you think you could be Stitches’ person? Apply today!
