Althea is looking for her angel… one who believes in second (or fourth) chances.
Althea is 10 years old and is a dream kitty in almost all ways.
– She’s beautiful (and the distinctive hair-free eyelids are enchanting)
– She’s soooo affectionate and loving.
– Her long hair! It’s divine
– At just 6 pounds she is petite and sweet
– She is so cuddle-able and has a wonderful personality.

The only way she’s not a dream kitty? She’s been returned 3 times for peeing outside her litter box. We do not have an answer for the cause of this behavior. She uses her litter box at the shelter. We’ve had various tests done to rule out a medical cause and have not found any medical concern. Althea is an indoor kitty and we don’t think she would enjoy or do well with outdoor living. This sweet and petite senior girl is looking for a very special and patient person with a quiet home, who will give her another chance and perhaps think outside the box if she begins to pee outside the box. We think a quiet home with little to cause stress would be best.

Althea’s adoption fee is waived for an approved adopter who is ready to fall in love with this very sweet and lovable girl and give her a loving home for her retirement years. You can call the shelter to learn more about Althea or stop in during our open hours to meet her. Fill out our application at to get preapproved.
