Adopt Me

This spunky petite sweetie came to the shelter when her people were moving. Qtip is a spirited girl who needs some time to adapt to change, but she is totally worth it! QTIP is ridiculously cute. She needs a home with cat savvy adults or older children who know how to read cat body language. She is a happy, young girl who loves to play and rest in your lap, but does not like to be picked up. She lived indoors but likes to try to escape, so secure outdoor access or a busy window would keep her curiosity safety entertained. Loud noises, young children and other cats unsettle this teenage dream queen. Q-tip loves to scratch and needs a guardian who is okay with this, as she may continue to use the furniture in the home. Come meet our resident beauty queen today!

Name: Qtip
Age: 3 years
Gender: Female
Animal ID: 441726
Breed: Domestic Long Hair
Making it to a shelter is often just the first step on the long road to recovery for sick and abused animals. You can do something to help an animal needing urgent care.
