Shaggy is part of a bonded pair and MUST be adopted with his partner, Scooby.

"Zoinks! Where am I?" wondered Shaggy the cat. 
And just like that, Shaggy found himself at the front door of EHS early one frosty morning.  This handsome, long-haired tabby boy has likely been through a lot in his short life, however, his past is now behind him as he looks to brighter days ahead. As he waits to meet his perfect family, this sweet boy is busy watching the comings and goings around him. Once a detective, always a detective. Right, Shaggy?

Shaggy may greet you with a momentary hiss, but this guy is just so sweet--he's really a cuddle bug who craves attention. He has become much more accepting of pets and loves to be brushed, even pushing his head into your hand for more. He truly enjoys his one-on-one time with our dedicated volunteers, even purring to show his pleasure! Shaggy certainly does enjoy his "Scooby snacks," wet food being his preference, and let's not forget the occasional tube treat (either on or off a spoon).  
Shaggy would like you to know that he wants to spend the rest of his life with his long-time best friend Scooby, so they will need to be welcomed as a pair. Given his gentle disposition, it is likely that he would thrive in a quiet environment where he can enjoy all the good things life has to offer--safety, food, and above all, love. As for companions other than humans and Scooby, Shaggy is currently sharing his space with a compatible feline, so adding another team member is certainly an option. Like his early years, his previous contact with dogs remains a mystery. so we're uncertain how he would react to them.

Shaggy's just waiting to meet his perfect match. Could he be the one to pull at your heart strings? You'll only find out if you drop by to meet him. You never know, you could be in for adventures of your own!
The adoption fee for a single cat at EHS is $175. Take home an adult feline friend for your kitty and the adoption fee for the pair is $300! For kittens under six months of age, the adoption fee is $200...or, double your cuteness quotient and adopt two wee furballs for $350! If you mix and match (kitten plus cat), the adoption fee is $300. Each of our cats is spayed/neutered, microchipped, up to date on vaccines, snap tested for FIV/FeLV, dewormed, and flea treated prior to adoption. Kittens are not spayed or neutered until 5 months of age, but the cost of spay/neuter will be covered as part of the adoption.
