We need your help on behalf of our little cutie girl, Sage. She has been with us “5 Years”!!! Our shelter has been her home!!! She was trapped outside our 72 Cameron Street location as a stray. She was frightened, not very well socialized at that time, and she was never claimed. Given the benefit of a great deal of time and ongoing positive interactions with people, Sage really has blossomed. She is still a quiet and demure lady who needs time to feel safe with someone new, but she has come such a long ways in her comfort with meeting people and making friends. For a while now, we have been seeing her greet and show patient new visitors she is interested in finding a home. We are so proud of her. She has many friends at the shelter who love and care about her, but would be even happier to see her find her very own special home and human dedicated to loving and caring for her!!! And, even though she has made such great progress in her social skills with people and has tried her hardest for so long to get chosen for adoption, she often is overlooked for more extroverted cats who immediately approach strangers and like to be picked up and who have more colorful coats or markings. Yes, Sage is a black kitty who is shy and not crazy about being picked up. But, make no mistake, she loves and establishes friendly close bonds with her people. In fact, she is so sweet and endearing, she has all the shelter staff wrapped around her tiny little paws. Everyone is closely attached to her. We all love her so much that we want to see her find her just right for her home. Sage would be best matched to a quiet and patient home with a cat experienced and loving human(s). Other compatible cats would be fine, and a cat friendly dog may be okay too.
Sage is ~8 years-old, already spayed and has up to date vaccinations. She also has a sponsor who has agreed to cover her adoption fee for a compatible forever home!
If Sage sounds like she could be a good fit for you and you have room in your heart and home, won’t you please consider her for adoption!!!! Unable to adopt, but want to help her, please share this post like crazy!
