Adopt This Shy Cat, Then Watch Her Blossom

The adoptable pet of the week is the cat Denise, who I was told is a shy cat first until she gets to know you, then she starts to open up and will show you a lot of affection. Denise has been with the Mower County Humane Society since 2016, through no fault of her own or the staff, it’s easy to overlook a shy cat when there are so many to see in a humane society.

Our friend and volunteer at the Mower County Humane Society, Michaela Tews, had this to say about 5 year old Denise:

She is a very sweet girl who is doing great here at MCHS. She’s a bit shy at first, but once she knows you, she’s a typical fun-loving girl. Denise gets along well with other cats at the shelter and seeks a patient home to let them blossom.

As with all adopted animals, it takes time for them to feel comfortable in a new environment, and sometimes when you have other animals around the house, it takes time for them to all get along. I know when we adopted our three-legged cat a few years ago, he initially didn’t like our other pets at all. But over time he started to tolerate them, and now we often find him curled up next to our other cat or snuggling up to our dog.

Denise can be adopted for $ 50 with an approved application from the Mower County Humane Society. You can find Denise’s adoption application here, and don’t forget that you must have an approved application to visit Denise and her friends at the Mower County Humane Society.
