About Monet

Hello there, humans! A few months ago, I came to the SPCA with a dozen other cats from a semi-feral colony. I was a wreck at first and seemed like I hated people, but I was just scared. If you give me time to relax and settle in and get to know you, I even like being petted! I have pure green eyes without a fleck of yellow in them, something I think makes me unique. I love other cats, especially calm ones, older ones, or just frightened ones because I know how that is. I would make a good companion for another cat, and I'm bound to keep you entertained with my intelligent stares and wandering around. I just hope someone adopts me soon. It gets lonely being the last of my clan here, even though I enjoy spending time with Hokie especially. I make him share a shelf when I feel like it. I think it's good for him to share.

Because I am shy and take time to acclimate, I really don't think I would want to go to a house with young children. I might be okay with it if they're really good and understanding about my need for space and to take things at my own pace. I am not bothered by the dogs going by in the hallway but haven't actually interacted with a dog in a long time, so it's hard to say how I feel about them nowadays. But I DO love other cats. I've met a lot of cats in the community room since coming to the SPCA, and I don't fight with anybody.

If you want to win me over, just give me some space, talk to me quietly and sweetly, and just hang around. Once I get used to you, you might be surprised when I pop out to greet you and ask for some love!

 

Monet is a great girl! Shelter staff report that once she knows you, she'll come say hi and she actually really enjoys being pet. You just have to earn it! Her fur is really soft and she has beautiful eyes.

"I have been at the shelter for over a year now, and before that, I was in another shelter in Virginia. My background was actually misunderstood when I was transferred here because of a lack of paperwork, so the story the SPCA got was that I had been a severely abused puppy. Eventually, a trainer that knew me from the first shelter reached out and revealed I was actually a rescued feral puppy! Needless to say, not knowing my background was why I had a hard time making progress, but I'm a very trainable and smart girl. "I'm 3 years old, though, and have spent a lot of time not quite understanding this world I'm in and NEVER knowing what it's like to be in a real home with a family for good. So there's a lot about being a dog that I just don't know. Like how to introduce myself, or what's actually a threat or not a threat. I really don't like sudden introductions, and I am SUPER sensitive to 'vibes'. Like if you're not calm and chill with me, I just freak out because oh my dog, what am I supposed to do then? Some dogs don't like me because they think I'm too anxious, so although I like other dogs, I need careful and slow introductions so we have time to get to know each other. Actually, that introduction rule applies to all species, including people. "Once you become my friend, though, I NEVER forget you. I will smother you with my snuggles and kisses once we're friends! I love playing with my doggie friends too. I did chase a bird before in one house that gave me a shot, though it could have been because I was overstimulated from moving. It is really easy to overstimulate me, which is why I need someone super dog-savvy and able to read when I've had enough. If I can find that person, I promise, I would be worth all the investment of time and energy!" Bella is a diamond in the ruff. She desperately needs a dog-savvy home that has the time, patience and ability to work with her to earn her trust. She snuggles fiercely, plays like a champ, is highly intelligent, loves other dogs, and is very trainable. She suffers with a few behavioral issues that stems from a tough start in life. The details are muddy, but her puppyhood was not great. Bella adores most other animals and would thrive with a confident doggy mentor sibling to teach her how to 'dog' within a home. Once Bella earns your trust and understanding, she will go to the ends of her world to please and put a smile on your face with her goofy playstyle and love of the water and toys. If you feel like investing time, love, and heaps of patience and training into this gorgeous pup- it will pay tenfold. Bella has been evaluated by a professional dog trainer to determine the course of her rehabilitation plan, as most of it has been outlined above. The dog trainer determined that Bella's future family needs to be very aware of her resource-guarding and aggression that comes from that, have a plan for introducing Bella to people, animals, and anything new, and be willing to commit to work with a trainer in the long-term to help Bella find ways to better introduce and present when meeting new situations and coping in a home life. show less

Hello! My name is Benny, and no matter how I'm feeling, I am happy to see you! I am a super sweet old guy - only newly old though, since I'm a little shy of eight years old. My family found my frequent urination outside the litterbox too much to bear, but it turns out, I was trying to say, I don't feel good! That's something we cats do. Peeing seems like a great way to get attention, don't you think? Anyway, it turns out that I have a really painful oral disease called Feline Chronic Gingivostomatitis. I just had several teeth pulled because of it, but I recovered nicely from it! I'll need more than your average cat's dental care (routine vet visits every six months and potentially annual dental cleanings) and in the end will feel better without my teeth, since I can still eat and will have more of an appetite without any pain. I was ridiculously skinny when I came to the SPCA! The doctor said my surgery went super well and now I'm ready to find a home! I have a record of being good with kids, and so far, I love everybody! Benny is currently recovering from an upper respiratory infection (he probably got it after his dental surgery from his decreased immune system) and he wasn't handling his antibiotics too well. He's back from the vet with some new medication and is on the mend. Once he's finished with his medication and is all better, he can go home. This might be in another week or two. show less

Hi! My name is Marquis and I LOVE kids I love to play with them, snuggle them, and in general be the center of their attention. But the thing is, I am very protective of my humans and tend to zone in on one favorite in a group, and if a kid can't read my signals that I'm done, I have been known to give them warning nips. So it may be best if I stick to kids 8 and older, or otherwise ones that SHOW during meet-and-greets that they know how to read and react to a dog. I do some tricks, including "sit pretty" but would like to learn more. I am housebroken and really, really smart - so smart that I opened every non-deadbolted door at the SPCA my first night here! I love doing zoomies, and while I am not a fan of every dog I come across, I like most of them. I am slow to walk on a leash at first, but very well-mannered once I get used to the person holding my leash. Cats are evil creatures from another world, and must be chased and hunted down, so I would prefer a house that they have not infiltrated so I can fully relax in peace. One thing about me is I HATE to be left alone. I just want to be with my favorite people all the time, so a household with opposite work shifts or someone who works at home would be ideal for me. I am SO ready for my next forever home! Would you consider being my new person? show less

HI! My name is Raven and I am a SUPER smart cat who can open up pretty much any locked door in the shelter... or cabinet... or bin of cat treats... or anything I feel like sticking my head into! As a result, I make the humans here laugh all the time. I'm kinda the shelter clown. I am also super atheletic and absolutely love running on my cat-sized hampster wheel; check out my video! I also am totally bonded to my borther Onyx. He might be a bit shy, but I think he is the best brother. In addition to being a bit of a character, I also absolutely LOVE human affection - give me pets, and give them to me ALL the time. And don't you dare lock me out of the room you're in! I wanna be where the people are! So if you are looking for a super smart kitty who will make you laugh, please consider adopting me and my brother Onyx today. PS - I have a condition called intestinal dysbiosis, where my gut doesn't produce enough good bacteria. I've been managing my symptoms with a special diet. If you want to learn more about my condition, this is what it is like in humans: https://microbiome.ferring.com/?gclid=Cj0KCQjw8rT8BRCbARIsALWiOvRf5RVpEUcKI2ivvETqAk7cyt-KgXvtoiyHR1VDRhzp5VLH8ow0SwgaAitvEALw_wcB and here is a link to information on stomach problems in animals and how it affects us: http://www.millikenanimalclinic.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/small_intestinal_dysbiosis.pdf show less
