Sylvia

4 years, 4 months

Dalzell, IL

Most people who visit us will only catch a glimpse of Sylvia. She's a stunning cat, but only trusts her foster parents (and not wholeheartedly). We know it's a long shot that she will ever find another home, but she deserves one. She loves to play with feather toys, and gaze out the window. She won't demand too much of your attention, unless you happen to have a can of Fancy Feast! Is there a perfect fit for her somewhere? Check out the third pic of Sylvia. hanging out with another long time resident, B.J. Aren't they gorgeous?
She gets along very well with other cats, but new people frighten her. She would do well in a quiet home where she can do as she pleases. (That usually means sleeping on top of the cat tree.)
UPDATE: Sylvia has been making slow but steady progress. She allowed a volunteer who had never even seen her before to pet her and even leaned in as she was scratched behind the ears. She's slowly learning to trust humans. She may never be a lap cat, but we hope she continues to experiment with receiving affection.



All of our cats have been spayed or neutered, vaccinated, de-wormed, microchipped, and tested for FIV/FeLV. Our adoption fee structure is as follows:

$75 - Kittens/Young (Up to 1 year) $50 - Adult (1 Year +) $25 - Senior (7 Years +) $0 - FIV + There is an additional $25 fee for cats considered to be an "Exotic" (Siamese, Persian, etc...) If you are a senior (65 years or older) you can adopt any of our senior cats (7 years or older) for only $10! Please mention this special when applying. We also have a kitten special - adopt 2 available kittens (1 year & under) for $125 While we try to keep our animal listings up-to-date online, sometimes the age range may be labelled incorrectly. Please don't hesitate to contact us for the most up-to-date information on a particular cat. Our cats are shown by appointment - we are a foster based rescue and so we don't have a location with set hours.
If you are interested in adopting or would like to meet our cats, please fill out our adoption application online at www.safehousepets.org/adopt and a volunteer will contact you promptly.
