Shelby (4 years old) and her 2 year old daughter Moxie are 2 beautiful, Indoor only, bonded Maine Coon mix, girls looking to stay together forever. They are both very social lap cats with beautiful green eyes, in need of a new home. They were surrendered to the shelter due to human medical and personal circumstances. The girls are fully vetted and litter box trained with excellent cat manners. They are very affectionate and love playing with toys. With their long hair they both need to be brushed on a regular basis to prevent painful matting and they love to be brushed.

Shelby will notify you about 30 minutes before treat time…don’t let her trick you. Her favorite toys are a peacock feather and a track ball that goes in circles. She will be moving to her new home with her favorite “cat-house/bed.”

Moxie is a petite girl and just as fuzzy as mom-ear tufts and between the toe tufts. She has beautiful long whiskers and will lap sit for hours. Her favorite toys are a peacock feather and catnip mice. She will be moving to her new home with her favorite blanket. She does like to sleep in her mom’s bed covered except for her head. Information about feeding (no special diet), litter brand, flea treatment provided by their prior owner will be provided to the new owner. Shelter staff and volunteers would love to see these girls stay together.

Please remember their true purrsonality may not show through immediately in the shelter environment. Their condo is now their “safe place” and some struggle a bit when removed from it. That, by no means does NOT mean they aren’t sweet, loving lap cats. It means they are uncomfortable or scared. Take the time to meet each cat. Pet them while they are still in their condo and let them get used to you for a few moments before you pick him/her up. Once you get them home and they feel secure all will be well….

All animals adopted are spayed or neutered, have age appropriate vaccinations and testing, and are microchipped (with registration). Cats are litter box trained. $40 adoption fee.

Please come visit these girls and all of the other cats & kitten ready for their new home…Samantha, Ava, Faith, Picasso, Beyonce, Lakota, Laguna, Gemini, Nadia, Wiskers, Fluffy, Lola, Pele, Paul, Gabbie, Loverboy, Checkers, Cookie, Wink, Cheyenne (and housemate DeSoto), Roweena, Felicia and Fernando.

We celebrate all the volunteers who work with the Monroe County Animal Shelter and the Monroe County Friends of Animals. They are a big reason so many animal's lives are being saved in Monroe County. Smokey and Miss Kitty represent us as good will ambassadors and live in their costumed characters through snow, sleet, freezing cold and blasting summer heat and humidity. A special thanks to Paul and Tina Wenner for their dedication.

                   

IMPORTANT NOTE: Animal Control is administered through the Sheriff's office. Call the Sheriff's office at 423-442-3911 to report cases of stray animals, animal endangerment or abuse/neglect. Please do not call the shelter.

 

NOTE: All animals are spayed/neutered before adoption.

Please spay or neuter your own pets
and
help us keep our county's pet population under control.
