LINDA - ID#A043647

Hi, my name is LINDA.  I am a spayed female, tortie Domestic Shorthair.  Shelter staff think I am about 2.5 years old.

Are you looking to really make a difference in the life of an abandoned kitty, and maybe take on a challenge in the process? We currently have a sweet, but very shy kitty in foster care (due to the pandemic, all our shelter cats are in foster homes) who needs a loving, patient animal-lover to help her develop into the sweet kitty we know she could be.

Here's how Linda's foster dad describes her:  To say Linda is shy is an understatement, she seems to be petrified of the world around her.   She is super soft and has beautiful big eyes.  You have to approach her in a a slow calm manner.  She will let you pet her for as long as you want, but her entire body stiffens up. Linda is the kind of cat you want to spoil with love just to prove to her that people are good and will treat her well.  At night when no one is around she likes to play with various cat toys and run around with lots of energy.   She loves her canned food treats.  She has no problems eating, drinking, or using the litter box.   

Linda gets along with other kitties, and in fact, is in foster with another shelter cat.  If you have a quiet home, a big heart, and patience, perhaps you could be that human that helps Linda learn how to give and receive love.

  • Our adoption process is not first-come, first-served.  The supervisory staff reviews all applications and makes a decision that they feel is the best placement for both the animal's and the applicant's needs.
  • The timeline for the applications process on each animal can be different.  We do our best to accommodate each applicant's requirement for applications, however, an adoption approval may be made as soon as we have an applicant that meets the animal's adoption criteria and completes all required interactions.
