Livingston County Animal Shelter Adoption of the Week: Halley

Are you ready to offer a second chance to a senior cat? Halley is a beautiful 8-year old calico who adores people. She has been at the shelter and ready for adoption since the beginning of November, and is ready for her own family.

Halley has a calm and independent personality but will happily jump up into your lap for a good pet and a nap. She loves soaking up the rays from a patch of sun shining through the window, and enjoys snuggling up in a fuzzy blanket. When unhappy, Halley only uses her words (voice), never her claws.

Halley came in as a stray and recently had surgery to remove one of her ear flaps. She is selective with other cats and we are unsure how she is with dogs. Halley is spayed, up-to-date on medical, microchipped, and ready to start the new year living her best life.

Wondering why you should adopt a senior cat? Senior cats have predictable personalities but are still very adaptive. They tend to acclimate to new places more quickly due to their calmer dispositions, plus they require less supervision than kittens. A benefit of adopting a senior cat from the shelter is that staff is aware of personalities and temperaments and can help you find the perfect match.

Sharing is caring!
