Pet of the Week – Artemis (A198394)

UPDATE 8/17:  Artemis has been adopted!

Here is the Mix 103.1 Pet of the Week:

Artemis (A198394)

Artemis (A198394)

Here is Artemis, a 3 year old, spayed female, domestic shorthair mix cat.  Purry and interactive, Artemis is quick to greet you and exceptionally good-natured. She is quick to purr, this lovely gal enjoys being with people.  Lap time or playtime? Artemis loves both! She has previously lived happily with children from 6-18 years and a dog and would play with the dog, though the other cats were sometimes stressful for her so perhaps she’d prefer to be the only feline in the family.  Very loving and loveable, she is a calm and very personable companion!  Artemis can be adopted for $62, as she is already spayed, which includes her vaccinations and microchip.

    Is Artemis still available for adoption?

      Yes, Artemis was adopted on Saturday. Thanks for the catch! I thought I had updated everybody’s posts, but I guess I didn’t!

        I’m happy for her and sad for us! 🙂 Do you have other cats at the shelter with her personality? After almost 7 years of being cat-less, we are starting to really miss having a cat around. I’ve only just started looking here and at Friends of Pets, but Artemis caught my eye because we have 3 kids (12, 10, and 8, all homeschooled) who would want to love on an affectionate cat all day, plus a 2-year old golden doodle that is sweet-natured but big (60 lbs) and playful. The kids are very reluctant to adopt a senior animal (death looms too soon), and while my husband and I have owned a special-needs cat in the past, we can’t manage anything like that right now. If it is possible to let me know, you can feel free to use my email. Thanks!

        We have many great cats here at the shelter! If they come in as strays, we don’t have any info on how they would do with children, but it is one of the questions we ask on the personality profile when pets are surrendered to us by their owner. We have many requests for specific breeds, ages, temperments, etc. every day and, unfortunately, do not have the staffing to provide matching services. I would recommend you come down with your children and meet some of the adoptable cats. If may take more than one trip to find the perfect match, but some people find them on their first visit! Good luck!
