Vera: A Success Story
Rub noses with a celebrity! Clooney is a debonair guy who craves the spotlight. Fame hasn't gone to his head though--he is very sweet and would love for you to be his #1 fan. He thrives on attention and loves chin scratches. He is also a lap cat extraordinaire. Please note, however, that Clooney can become a little overstimulated at times. Accordingly, we recommend that he go home with an experienced cat owner with no other pets or small children. If you are interested in adopting, please fill out our online adoption application.
The Gifford Cat Shelter is a cageless, no-kill facility founded in 1884 and sponsored by Ellen Gifford.
The shelter is a pioneer in creating an environment that does not confine cats to small, movement-restricting cages.
