What is a Wallflower? 

Wallflower: a shy cat or kitten who is too afraid or insecure to involve themselves in social activities. When a wallflower is given the proper time, attention, and love they need to bloom- they are so very beautiful.

Our Wallflower program is for under-socialized and misunderstood cats and kittens – those most in need of help.  In the right home, a Wallflower will flourish and live their best lives!

About our Program

Who should adopt a Wallflower Cat?

Wallflower Cats make great companions but need a special owner willing to be patient, provide a safe,  space, and give extra love so the cat can become comfortable in their new environment. Ideal adopters should understand Wallflowers need time to adjust to their new home their own pace.

What type of home is needed for a Wallflower Cat?

The ideal home environment for a Wallflower Cat is quiet, stable, and offers a predictable routine. Each cat will have different needs specified in their bio, but some tend to prefer homes without young children, or a busy, active home. Some Wallflowers may be okay with another calm cat or kitten. In some cases, another cat or kitten can help the Wallflower feel more confident in their new home. 

How can I help Wallflower Cats? 

You can help our Wallflower cats by sponsoring an adoption fee, or donating your time to volunteer at Greater Hillsdale Humane Society.

Padme- Intake 7/22/23

Padme is ready for her furever home!

This pretty lady arrived at GHHS on 7/22/23 with her kittens, and is the last to be adopted! She previously was a feral cat, but has really come out of her shell- now she loves to be pet and doted on! Padme does not enjoy the company of other cats, but would do well in a home with a small dog. This girl is known for her head butts, and her love for scratches. Padme will need a patient adopter in her new home so she can come out of her shell- check her out in our new Wallflower program!

She is spayed, up to date on vaccines, microchipped, and FeLV-FIV negative. Come and visit!

Pumpkin- Intake 10/4/23

Meet Pumpkin!

Listen up folks, we've got a story to tell! Our little lady was a bit wild and fierce when she first came in with her babies, but we worked our magic and got her fixed up. She's now a total snuggle bug and loves to soak up all the love she can get from humans.

However, she's a bit of a solo artist and prefers a calmer home without other cats, ya feel me? We're thinking she'd be happiest with kiddos aged 10 and up, so she can enjoy her own space when she needs it.

Pumpkin is spayed, up to date on vaccines, microchipped, and FeLV-FIV negative.

Pookie Bear- Intake 12/9/23

Pookie Bear is ready to steal you heart- and your bed!

 

This cutie is an ex-tom cat who was found living on the streets. He definitely prefers the indoor lifestyle, and loves any and all attention from people. Due to his previous life as a street cat, he would prefer to be the only cat in the home- we are unsure how he is with dogs. Due to this, he is part of our newly formed Wallflower Program! The way to win Pookie Bear's heart is through wet food- he's obsessed which is why he's large and in charge at 15lbs!

 

He is neutered, up to date on vaccines, microchipped, and FeLV-FIV negative. Come and visit!

Mileena- Intake 1/5/24

Meet Mileena!

Mileena came to GHHS on 1/5/24, and immediately stole our hearts with her beautiful eyes! She is a shy girl, but can easily be won over with treats and wet food. She has previously lived with other cats, and is kid friendly. Mileena would prefer a dog-free home. Due to her shy nature, we suggest a quiet home for this girl, so she can relax (usually with her tongue hanging out).

She is spayed, up to date on vaccines, microchipped and FeLV-FIV negative.

Peeta Ma-Lard- Intake 1/6/24

Meet Peeta Ma-Lard!

Peeta is fat and sassy kitty. Peeta was found in a crate in the end of a driveway with his mom (also chubby). The cage had a note on it from a previous owner explaining that they could no longer care for the kitties. A couple good people found them, and brought them to us. Peeta was adopted out to an older woman and was unfortunately returned- he was living his best life as a lap cat! We'd like him to find a great furever home.

Once adopted- he will most likely hide for a few days. He's not a fan of dogs barking here at the shelter, so we think a dog-free home would be best for this guy! Once he is comfortable, he's a very sweet kitty.

Peeta Ma-Lard is neutered, up to date on vaccines, microchipped, and FeLV-FIV negative.

Marius- Intake 1/13/24

Meet Marius!

Marius is a super cute fella with a handsome mustache. He's a shy and sweet boy, and will take some time to warm up to his new adopters. Marius previously lived with another cat, and due to his shy nature, he most likely would do best with another cat in the home. We recommend a dog-free home. 

He is neutered, up to date on vaccines, microchipped, and FeLV-FIV negative.

Winnie- 2/22/24

Meet Winnie!

Winnie is a member of our Wallflower Program, because she's shy when it comes to meeting new people. Once she gets to know you, she's super sweet and loves to get pets and snuggles. Because she's more timid, we recommend she be in a home with older children, if any.

Winnie's coat is unique, gorgeous, and has calico markings with tabby as well. She would be a wonderful pet for someone who wants a couch buddy to hang out with them until the cows come home!

Winnie is spayed, microchipped, up to date on her vaccinations, and tested negative for Feline Leukemia and FIV.

Petra- Intake 2/28/24

Meet Petra!

Petra is a gorgeous tortoiseshell cat. She was rescued from "outside life" when she was a kitten. She is very timid and scared when she first meets someone, so we have put her in our "Wallflower" program. When a wallflower is given the proper time, attention, and love they need to bloom- they are so very beautiful!

Petra is slow to warm up, but once she knows she can trust you she loves to get pets from humans. Because she's already timid/scared, we think she should probably not be in a house with smaller kids.

Petra is spayed, microchipped, up to date on her vaccinations, and tested negative for Feline Leukemia and FIV.
