We have many adoptable cats of all ages who would appreciate being adopted into loving homes. The cat listed are spayed or neutered and have tested “negative” for feline leukemia and FIV. We have additional adoptable cats listed on the Happy Tails Cat Sanctuary’s page on www.petfinder.com. (One way to access our page is by entering our zip code of 44026.)
Zelda, 12, is an affectionate, very pretty senior kitty with big green eyes who survived the fire that destroyed the Chesterland residence of Jeanne Bones, the Happy Tails Cat Sanctuary director. Because Zelda is afraid of other cats, several months ago Mrs. Bones had put her in a back bedroom by herself, where she seemed quite content. Since, the fire Zelda has been in a boarding facility in Newbury. She must be the solo pet in a household, however she can and will make you feel totally loved! We hope she will soon be in the comfort of a home with plenty of love for her. She is a short-haired, medium-sized, gray and black tiger tabby cat with a white bib and a hint of gold in some of her fur, tummy and paws.
BENNIE, 7: A FRONT-DECLAWED, 21-POUND, MALE TIGER CAT
FYI: This is a courtesy listing for a cat who isn’t (and has never been) at Happy Tails, but who is being temporarily fostered by a long-time supporter of the cat sanctuary.
Bennie is a 21-pound, front-declawed, 7-year-old, short-haired brown tiger cat whose former owner could no longer keep him. This jumbo-sized tabby's heart is breaking because he enjoyed his former owner's quiet home and the sweet way she used to talk to him. He's still traumatized by his relocation, and will be quite shy at first, but he will become very affectionate once he gets to know and trust someone. He would probably do best as a solo cat, but he's big and (eventually will be) loving enough as though he were two cats! He is neutered and vaccinated, and he tested "negative" for feline leukemia and FIV. Bennie is very temporarily being fostered in a back room of a store in Wickliffe in Lake County, but he belongs in a house or apartment where he will once again be a cherished pet.
Jerry, who is about 6, is a sweet, beautiful, medium-haired calico. She will be a bit shy until she gets to know and trust you, but then will be quite friendly. She gets along with other cats, and she is spayed and up-to-date on her shots. She also tested “negative” for feline leukemia and FIV. Jerry was originally rescued outdoors as an apparently abandoned cat, but she seems happy to be (and should be!) an indoor pet.
