Shadow will totally eclipse your heart!

A few years ago, Shadow arrived at EHS with his littermates and his mom after his mom was rescued from the streets. Luckily, she waited until she was safe to have her kittens, saving Shadow and his siblings from a life of uncertainty. Adopted as a kitten, Shadow is now back at EHS and is looking for the right home for him. He's a very sweet, good boy who loves his pets, follows his humans around, and responds to his name. Shadow is ideally looking for a more relaxed, stress-free environment (aren't we all, Shadow!).

We noticed that the shelter was a little overwhelming for Shadow, so he's now moved into a foster home, where his fun and friendly personality has clearly begun to shine through. Now, he walks confidently with his tail in the air and lays fearlessly in open spaces, though occasionally, he still gets startled by sudden noises or unexpected activity. A curious boy with an adventurous spirit, he loves prancing around and exploring every nook and cranny, high and low.

This gorgeous boy (and he knows it) spends much of his time admiring himself in the mirrors of his foster home. When he tires of this, Shadow enjoys sleeping in funny positions or letting you know it's time for food with some meows. Shadow is a big fan of affection and will head bonk for it (aww), but, he can get a little overstimulated when pet on his belly or near his tail. He might let you know when this happens by giving you a small hiss or swat, reminding you to respect his boundaries.

Shadow was recently returned to EHS due to having some accidents outside of his litter box. In his foster home though, he has been using his litter box regularly. In a quiet home, with patient and understanding adopters and access to multiple litter boxes, we believe Shadow's accidents can be eliminated. Shadow would do best with a loving adopter who knows how to read, or is willing to learn, cat body language. He would probably be better off as a single kitty, and at this time we are unsure how he would behave around a dog or small children.

Turn around, bright eyes! If you get a little bit lonely every now and then, apply to adopt Shadow so he'll come around and you'll both be holding on to each other forever!
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.
