Visiting the shelter kitties


No news on the kittens, I'm not really worried or I would have been told something, so I thought I would share some images that I took when I was up there visiting.

I really like that they currently have a "grumpy" room.



The second to last kitty was quite vocal. It turns out that they had just placed him in the community room for adoption. I didn't realize he was an escape artist and despite being on the opposite side of the room when I left the room he was in, he made it out of the room. Fortunately, they were really thinking when they designed the shelter and he only made it to the general cat room and was easily scooped up by the staff that there to answer questions.

The last kitty in this series was being held by a couple the entire time I was taking photos. I do not know if they ended up adopting her, but they were seriously considering it.

I also overheard the staff talking about a 15 yr old diabetic cat on insulin that was recently adopted. Took everything in me to not let my eyes leak at hearing this.

  1. My human would be first in line at the Grumpy Cat room! I'm probably the only cat she's ever had that was naturally good-tempered. Her soul cat had a real nasty streak, in spite of being almost heartbreakingly beautiful.

    Paws up for the diabetic senior kitty getting adopted!

  2. I love the drawing and little message on the one named Samantha. Do the local kids do those?

    1. They do. This shelter has a beautiful education room where they have many different events and classes for kids. They usually do a school vacation thing and such where kids get to come and spend a few hours at the shelter learning about the animals and what the shelter does. Their outreach is amazing.

  10. I love the grumpy room concept. It took me YEARS to figure out that Kitty was just different. I thought love looked like snuggling and affection ... but she just had a different way of loving. She was always in the same room as I was ... and she'd come cuddle with me long after I went to sleep. I love the sign more than anything - had I seen that when Kitty was a kitten, I would've understood better. These are amazing pictures of these furbabies ... truly amazing!

  11. I think I'm going to suggest to our shelter that instead of putting a "caution" sign on a cage with a cat that might not be the friendliest, they put a "grumpy cat" sign on it instead. :) ~Island Cat Mom
