My mom, Victoria, and I came in as strays so warmth and affection are wonderful but new to us. We are a little shy, just give us a chance! I like a high perch where I can play with cat toys. We have a very special November adoption special! For the entire month, we’re waiving the adoption fee on all black cats! All we’re asking for is a donation in their honor.

My ear is clipped and I was trapped behind the Ledyard Bank. I was probably part of a feral colony but with winter setting in I needed a safe place. Please visit with me at the shelter as I learn that there are lots of good things in store for me.

I am listed as “confident, highly affectionate, very social, likes to be pet, does not like to be held.” I am here due to litter box issues, but I’ve been fine at the shelter. Dog free home recommended for me! I might do really well as the only pet in the home. Update 6/2/2019- I was adopted in May and then returned due to litter box issues. Again there seems to be no problem at the shelter, however, I am, and was, in the condo area, where each cat has his/her own sleeping area and litter box, food bowls and water. Please talk to the staff if you are interested in me. I'm a friendly guy. I just need to get this issue figured out.

09/3/18-Presently I have taken up residency in the mailbox. Special delivery, anyone? Updates to follow. Update 07/09/19-I was hanging around the Lebanon Carwash and I was trapped by a nice person who brought me to the shelter. It’s been quite a journey for me but I am beginning to see that people are fun…. and I can play! The other cat in my pictures is Lilith. She been a friend since I've arrived. This is from a volunteer and board member and is applicable to Irina and Lilith. "Do I choose the pet, or does the pet choose me? It’s not uncommon for knowledgeable pet people to support the perspective that the right  animal is going to find you interesting and will seek to be your friend.  And that may well be the ideal animal to bring home!  In that case, the animal finds you. But there is also a likelihood that there is a truly lovely animal who is very sad after recently losing their long time human and is sitting quietly in the corner.  Or perhaps there is another animal who is dying to walk over and meet you, but is intimidated in the presence of a crowd of other animals.  One of those might be the right pet for you too! But, the good news, we have animals who have made huge progress in trusting despite the noise and occasional chaos which is sometimes normal in a shelter.  We have animals who might have come from abusive situations and DESPITE that they are willing to try to trust again. What they need now is a chance to get to know their human in a new home where they can fall in love.   Our staff has insights into the background and current progress and needs of all the animals.  They know the older animals who are trying to understand this new reality after having one home for a decade or more.  Those animals want nothing more than to find a new friend to bond with..  They know the pets who have recovered or are recovering from injuries or medical issues.  These animals deserve to be rewarded for their tenacity and fighting their way back to health. Will the animal choose you?  Perhaps, but maybe only if you ask the right questions and look at some of the animals who will not come running to you right away, even though they want to."

Visit us, Phillipa, Hubert, Leela, Hermes, Keely, with soft words, slow actions, and gentle toys. We want to be your friends. We are learning how with your help. I am curious, yet very cautious. I love treats but I want them from a distance. Put the treats close to the other cats on the cat tree and watch me dither before I jump to get my fair share.

Trapped with my friend, Marina, I’m still shy but I am beginning to play with the toy with a long piece of thin fleece. Please gently toss the fleece to the upper shelf and watch me pounce and blossom. I have fun playing with the toy with some of my roommates. We have a very special November adoption special!

I’m glad to be out of the cold but it is taking me some time to adjust to the other aspects of the shelter. Updates to follow. DOB: 8/27/16 app. Lucy Mac Arrival: 8/27/17 update 07/9/19 Like Irina I came in young without much contact with people. Like Irina, I’ve come a long way. If you are interested in younger adult cats and are cat savvy, how about giving us a chance. Irina is other cat in the pictures.

I'm a very friendly cat who has made a quick adjustment to being in the shelter. I'm practicing for you. Update: Actually, I've figured out I'm in a room with a lot of other cats who are also looking for a one and only. I'm having a tough time competing. Update: I had been with my previous guardian since I was kitten. I arrived here over a year ago. It’a been so hard for me. I want to feel special but I see all the other cats also longing to be special, too. I do say hello to people, I just don’t know how to say, “will you take me home?” I’m a good cat who gets a little moody. Please Look Again (Written by a Lucy Mackenzie volunteer for many of our cats longing to be adopted.) Every day I get passed by Just because I’m very shy. I’d really like a forever home And a human I can call my own. Don’t be turned off if I seem aloof I’d be very different once under your roof. You might have to wait; it might take time But I promise you’ll find my love is fine! We have a very special November adoption special! For the entire month, we’re waiving the adoption fee on all black cats! All we’re asking for is a donation in their honor.

Trapped with my friend, Lenore, we haven’t had much exposure to people. We’re learning that people can be great. Just give us a little time to develop confidence that we can handle all these new experiences. I like high perches. Ask the staff to show you how I like pets delivered from a ladder.

I was adopted in 2012. I was returned recently because my guardian felt she could no longer take good care of me. That’s what the LM is for, to shelter us when life gives us difficult choices. I’m doing o.k. but would love to loved by a special someone. I love to give and recieve affection. I only fuss when I am put back into my cage- which separates us. I am the ultimate lap cat. Adopt me and have a new, loyal, comforting, best friend.

This is a paraphrased description of time with Tahiti: ‘Tahiti loves to go for walks in the woods on a leash.  A volunteer has been taking her out whenever she can. They do the whole dog trail, and go off trail a bit also.  Tahiti is amazing, completely tranquil out there, not startling at the sudden sounds of something dropping from a tree, or a twig snapping.  She is interested in everything.  She needs to be an “Adventure Cat” and go to a home that will take her out and develop this aspect of her personality.’ Come meet Tahiti. If possible go for a walk with her and the volunteer!

My kitten, Brooks, and I hung out in a person’s front yard for about a week. We were very scared. Here at the shelter we are learning there are good times to be had and with your soft words, and little treats we will soon be frisking about the room. I'm still not doing much frisking around the room but that what shelters are for- to give those in need help. We have a very special November adoption special!
