I've found my furever family!

Hi! My Name Is Iris

We're happy to tell you that Iris has a new furever home.
Please visit our Available Cats Page to see the cats currently available.

Hello – I am Iris – a gray and white tuxedo two-year-old lady looking for a quiet home where I can get the loving I want plus watch a few birds and squirrels.  I got my name because my previous person loved the name, the flower and me!  Unfortunately, she developed some medical issues that prevent her from taking care of me, so I am looking for a new home.  I lived a very quiet life from around four months old when she adopted me until now.  Her adult son lived with us and I would sometimes sleep with him but usually slept with her – we were best buddies.  I am shy with strangers and have had little to no exposure to children or other pets.

I like to play with the laser dot and some of the wand toys and occasionally balls.  I especially like the scratching post with a little catnip on it.  I really like a cat tree near a window so I can watch what is going on outside.  The transition from one home to another may take awhile.  I am timid and shy and take my time in warming up to people and places so I will probably hide in small, dark spots.  You will know I am OK because I will come out at night to eat and use the litter box.  I will gradually emerge to collect on deferred pets and brushing.  Did I mention that I like being brushed?  I purr! Loudly!

I am looking forward to finding my new forever home and settling in with you.  Please come see me soon.
