Otis is our most mature orange tabby.  He has been with us since we opened.  With a sweet, laid back personality it is suprising that he hasn't been snatched up to make someone happier with him in their life.  His goal in life seems to be to be petted often, sleep in the sun and have treats on a regular basis!

This pet of the week is Amelia. She’s a sweet and all black beauty. She’s two years old but is the size of a 6 month old kitten. Amelia is a special little girl because she is FELV +. This means she will either need to be the one and only kitty in your house or with other FELV + kitties. Cats with FELV have been known to live long and healthy lives, so don’t think anything different of this sweet girl. She may be petite, but she has so much personality in her tiny little body. She loves to be held, have her head rubbed and her back scratched, purring the whole time. She loves to play. 

For more information on Amelia or any other animals we have up for adoption, please visit our website at www.animalshelternn.org or call us at (402) 316-4848.

Tippi is a small white female with dark grey tail and one spot on her head.  She was found by one of our members, cold, thin and with ear tips missing due to frostbite.  Friendly almost to the point of demanding with respect to human companions, she expects her feline roommates to behave as she wants them to and lets them know when they don't.  Her time on the street has left her looking a bit rough but she was obviously determined to survive.  She deserves a loving home.
