Wren is available for adoption but will be staying at her foster home until she's adopted. If you'd like to meet Wren, please contact the Shelter and we can make arrangements for the foster home to contact you about meeting her.

From her foster home:
"Wren is a sweet, affectionate senior who's still young enough to think a dangling string is an awesome toy! She's recently recovered from a painful attack of cystitis, a bladder inflammation frequently caused by stress. She's made it very clear that she doesn't like other cats, so a quiet home with no other pets is needed to help keep her stress-free and her bladder healthy. She's on non-prescription urinary food and also takes Cosequin daily (sprinkled on her food) for some arthritis. Apparently, it's working, because she shows no signs of pain or difficulty moving around.

Wren loves attention and pets but doesn't seem to be familiar with being picked up - she just kind of stands in your arms instead of snuggling in or holding on. She's willing to sit on your lap, although you may have to place her there. With some gentle patience, I was able to clip her front claws, although she did keep trying to get her paws away from me. lol She wants to be where the people are, so she paws at the door to her room here when she hears us moving around and can't get to us.

She'll use an open litter box, but she's quite a digger, so I switched her to a tall covered box. One unique thing about her is that she's a polydactyl. She has double thumbs on each front paw, making her paws look like mittens or what I think of as "monkey paws."

Wren was very distressed about being put in a carrier and driven to my house, crying all the way. That's why you can come to visit her at my house to meet her where she feels more relaxed. After you get her home it'll probably only take her a couple of hours to recover from that terrible "torture" in the car, based on my experience with her here. :)"

Ren needs to go to a quiet home without any other cats. She has arthritis and may get cystitis when stressed. She has a medical/behavior waiver.

Our cat adoption fee is $70. They come spayed/neutered, microchipped, first set of vaccines including FVRCP (feline distemper combo) and Strongid (wormer).

We try to keep our list of available animals up to date, but some may be placed in adoption or adopted out faster than we can get them updated online.
