Available for Adoption:
Meet Oliver...he is a very sweet, super affectionate boy, just look at those eyes!. Oliver is approx. 8-10 years old. Sports a soft silky black coat. He enjoys being brushed, and loves to chat. He lived with other cats before coming to the shelter, but we feel he may do better as the only cat in the home where he can be spoiled into his golden years. Oliver is neutered, up to date with vaccines. Interested adopters, please fill out an adoption application and if approved, a member of our adoption team will contact you to set up a meet and greet.
