Domestic Cat   

    Donation to is helpful. My mom's next door neighbor, a young and healthy-looking man, died suddenly of an aneurism. He had 3 outdoor cats. We think one disappeared, but there is a gray cat and a white cat still waiting for their 'master' to come home and take care of them. Landlord bought a bag of food for them, but when that is gone we don't know what will happen to the cats. My mother is 88 years old and can't take on this responsibility,and I live in Florida and can't take the cats. So the cats NEED a new home. They're starting to become a little skittish of people, so the sooner they get adopted the better! The two cats live ... (Read More)next door to my mom, and she said you can call her.

Personality: Average Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Sweet, affectionate smaller size (8lbs) 9 year old neutered male purebred Norwegian Forest Cat; very cuddly and prone to licking people, other animals and objects. Quiet, lazy, loves to sit in the sun and snooze. Healthy appetite, no medical issues. Developed behavioral issues (separation anxiety?) when I stopped working from home 2 years ago and began intermittently (once a week, according to my security cameras) urinating on the carpet. We've cleaned it repeatedly, but can't seem to stop the behavior as it only happens when I'm not home. On weekends, he's 100% in the litter box. We're having the carpets replaced in the next month and ... (Read More)need to find him a new home where someone's around to provide companionship for him. (Less)

Maine Coon Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Cats, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Low Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Princess is a beautiful Maine Coon cat. Sadly, she was abandoned by her previous owner who moved away. It is traumatizing to be abandoned & she will be shy until given a chance to bond with you. She needs a quiet, patient, loving home. Best suited for a home without other cats; a dog may be ok. Princess is strictly an indoor cat only. Won't you please help find her forever home; she has been patiently waiting.

PIease Read Before Adopting a Cat in Delaware
    Cats can make good pets in Delaware if they match your IifestyIe. Domestic Cats have been intriguing companions for humans since ancient times. Worldwide, cats are even more popular than dogs as pets. Sadly, huge numbers of cats are in need of adoption and care. A cat owner who no longer wants the cat, or is no longer able to care for a cat, may drop the cat off at a shelter or simply abandon it. Overcrowding in shelters, along with too few adoptive families for the cats, leads to many wonderful pets having to be euthanized. Abandoned cats fend for themselves and breed in the wild, forming colonies of feral cats. Feral cats have such a difficult existence that they typically only live an average of two years, whereas domestic cats can live an average of twelve years with proper care. Organizations exist that can catch and tame feral kittens, and then place them in a home, but adult ferals can rarely be socialized to trust humans. Meanwhile, many prospective cat owners choose to purchase a kitten from a pet store or breeder, and may not know that even purebred cats and kittens are often available for adoption.

    Once someone is ready for the responsibility of caring for a cat, adoption can be an incredibly rewarding decision. Adoption benefits cats, owners, and society alike. Adopting a cat is typically much less expensive than purchasing one. Shelters often have a wide selection of very sweet, friendly cats and kittens, including purebreds. Adoptive owners enjoy bonding with their pets, and have the extra satisfaction of knowing they have rescued a wonderful companion from a hard existence. Every cat adopted means one less cat has to be euthanized. Every kitten purchased new results in one less opportunity for adoption to take place. If you are ready for a pet cat, please consider adoption!
