Bonded pairs are the luckiest! They get to be adopted with their best fur friend, by their new best human friend. Midnight and Tabby are indoor cats, sweet brother and sister long hairs (possible Maine Coon mix) with the softest fur. They are about 1 year old and are truly bonded with each other. Shelter “cat” volunteers feel they will be happier and better pets if they stay together…and ALL vetting is complete so they are ready to go home NOW! .

Adopting an already-bonded pair may sound like more work, but the opposite may actually be true. They can play and keep each other company while you’re at work or school. For them, a big adjustment such as a new home and family can seem less stressful when faced with a friend. The great part about bonded pairs is, they don’t exclude anybody else. They include other animals and people in their circle of love. It just increases the amount of love in the home.

Fact: Cats, (and dogs too) when put in a cage/condo in a shelter, more often than not, are terrified. Each animal’s reaction to their new circumstance is going to be different. Some adapt quickly and some don’t. Cats who adapt well will come right up to cage door to greet you and/or talk to you. Often a stressed cat will sleep, try to hide or just sit…PLEASE don’t overlook these cats as unsocial or unfriendly…they are trying to adapt and survive after losing their home. Take the time to visit with these cats and in a few minutes you can feel them relax and purr and rub against your hand when you take the time to show them some attention. They are saying “pick me” as much as the cats who are active greeters-but in their own way. The cat that will respond and relax with your touch will be the right cat for you as the bonding process has already begun from that moment. Taking the time to meet each cat is the most important factor in choosing the right cat for you. We often hear during the adoption process that the cat chosen was not the one they thought they would adopt…This is because the person took the time to meet each cat and discovered that the right cat chose the person!

Shelter Needs: Laundry detergent, lots of scoopable/clumping cat litter, copy paper, bleach, paper towels, and Original blue Dawn-all cleaning & office supplies are always needed!

The Monroe County Animal Shelter is located at 170 Kefauver Lane in Madisonville (behind Wal-Mart) and is open Tuesday-Friday from 10-5 and Saturdays from 10-2.

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.
