When Alan arrived in care at the Human Society he was pretty shut down. He came from a home environment and this was a scary place for him. He was placed in a foster home in an effort to learn more about his personality and it took some time but after nearly 8 weeks he has really come out of his shell.
He was paired with another reserved cat and it didn't take long for them to become the best of friends.
Bat helps Alan feel more confident, as Alan does for Bat. We'd love to see these shy boys live their best lives together. Alan loves being brushed and pet, Bat is learning humans give great chin scratches and with time and patience you'll have yourself the best boys you could imagine! Both of these sweet boys are neutered, microchipped, vaccinated and dewormed. All that they're missing is a family to call their own! They are most suited to a low stress, adult only home.
Rowan is a great cat! He is willing to accept another senior cat as a friend but it will take time for him to bond. He is tolerant of other laid back cats here, but does like his own space. Rowan now has his very own "Cat Adoption Pod" and some days he's sitting in the window waiting for his family to come and adopt him. More often than not he's curled up in his cat tower snoozing the day away. Rowan has a very sweet side, he flops over on his back and ask for belly rubs, but not for too long or he'll start peddle kicking. He is a frisky guy and makes us laugh all the time.
Marilyn is a very friendly and an affectionate gal. We believe she’d settle with another calm feline friend, dogs are unknown at this time. Marilyn would succeed in a home with children who are 6+. Marilyn is a sweet cat, always bright eyed, and bushy tailed, eager to greet visitors of the HSHPE. Like all newly adopted pets, Marilyn will take some time to settle into her new home. She is ready to live out the rest of her 9 lives beside a loving family!
