What do you do when you are 12 years old and somehow it is decided that you can no longer stay at home with your owner. To be taken from your home, your bed, your owners lap and taken to Animal Control like a unwanted box of old clothes.
How do you feel instead of the warmth of a humans lap you are put in a steel cage and all you can do is wait.
How can you shut out the barking of the dogs and the cries of the other cats as all there are as lonely and confused as you are.
Other cats are taken from there, the kittens, the pretty ones, the friendly ones but you are old. Your eyes a little dim and your personality still there but hiding behind fear and confusion.
And even though you think this is the end of your life the director of Animal Control has noticed your sweet ladylike ways and has made a call to Catsnap. And they came.
And a new life begins. They gave you a name instead of a number.
They named you Gertie. Because age is nothing but a number.
Thank you for your interest in a Catsnap cat or kitten!

For this reason, we require an approved application on file before we set
up a meet and greet.

Completing an online application does not obligate you to adopt! We care
deeply about our cats and want the best match for all involved.
