Adopt Me: Poor Crystal has been waiting forever for her new home (adopted)

All of her kittens have been adopted but she hasn't been as lucky

ElliotLakeToday, in partnership with the Society For Animals In Distress, brings you a regular feature highlighting a special pet that is in need of adoption.


Hi, I’m Crystal. I was surrendered to the shelter July 27, 2018, that’s almost one whole year at the shelter and makes me the cat who has been here the longest!

I was surrendered with four kittens who were all adopted to their forever homes. I’m only two years old, but I have been through a lot. When I first came to the shelter, I was easily overlooked in the cat room because I was so shy, and I was afraid of people.

I do get along well with the other cats; I mostly keep to myself though. You can usually find me laying on a fuzzy blanket or looking out the window. I don’t generally hang around other cats but in the last couple months I have been coming out of my shell more.

I will now approach people for attention or affection, I am easily pushed away by other cats though, so it is easy for me to not be noticed. You can easily tell me apart from the other tabby cats in the room because I have the biggest green eyes!

I promise I would make a great loving pet if you’re patient with me. I am ready for my forever home! I have been worm and flea treated, fully vaccinated and spayed.

Come down to the shelter and meet me Monday to Friday between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m., or in the evenings between 7 p.m. and 8 p.m., or on weekends from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. or 7 p.m. to 8 p.m.
