Shelley is a friendly black cat who is available for adoption thru CAAWS. She is estimated to have been born around Jan. 2009. In Feb. 2011, she was trapped along with her 4 babies at the Tanger Mall in Gonzales. Two of them have since been adopted. She is being fostered along with her other 2 kids, Austyn and Liberty whom she ADORES. She takes really great care of them!
Unfortunately Shelley is heartworm positive. She has been on heartworm preventative since 2011 & has never had any symptoms. She will be re-tested in the future to see if the preventative has done its job and give her a clean bill of health from heartworms.(UPDATE: As of 7/12/13, Shelley is heartworm negative!!! She must continue on a montly heartworm/flea preventative such as Revolution or Advantage Multi for life to prevent recurrence.)
She has never been around dogs but tolerates other cats well. She would probably enjoy being an only cat or two cat family. She might even appreciate if the other cat was younger than she is…that way she could take care of it like she has her babies.
She is a very sweet little lady and will sit in your lap for short spells at a time and let you know when she wants a belly rub. She is up to date on vaccinations and litter box trained.
Shelley currently doesn't attend adoption days because of her heartworm diagnosis - not because it's contagious or anything like that - just because we don't want to cause her any undue stress. So if you are interested in meeting this wonderful little mommy cat, arrangements can be made for
a visit with her and heartworm preventative will be sent along with her to her new forever home.
Black cats are no different than any other single or multi colored cat. Black is just the coloring they ended up with by their parents genes and should not be judged because of this nor does their personality reflect from this color. They have their need for love and affection just like any other colored cat. I personally have black cats and they are some of the sweetest and most affectionate cats ever.
