Jarvis Island

I'm a shy, gentle boy who likes a quiet life of contemplation. I enjoy looking out the window and lap time with my people when I am sure I can trust you. I like to be in the same room with my foster parent, and if I'm not, all you have to do is call my name and I'll come running! I do ok with other gentle kitties but I do love having all your attention and a nice, relaxed quiet home environment. Cheek, chin and belly scratches make me so happy!

I don't like a lot of change in my life and I'm a bit spooked by new situations or people. Limiting me to one room of your home (at first) may help me feel safe. I have come a long way from when I got into my foster home. When I first arrived, I chose to hide under the bed, but I now sleep with my foster parent and spend most of my time in the living areas. However, you will need to have patience, giving me the time to continue flourishing at my own speed.

This animal is one of the over 3,500 animals the Wisconsin Humane Society places into foster care each year. Foster homes provide the care, love, and support animals need to thrive before they are ready to find a new home. To put it simply, fosters save lives - thousands of lives. You can find more information about joining one of the most robust foster networks in the country by heading over to this link: (copy & paste into your browser). Animals need foster for a variety of reasons and we're confident we have a match for you and your lifestyle. What are you waiting for? And did we mention that fosters often get first "dibs" on their foster animals? Become a foster today!

Every animal is an individual and WHS works hard to make great matches for our animals and adopters.  Some animals may have placement restrictions or requirements established by WHS based on shelter observations and previous home histories.  When meeting with your adoption counselor, they review each animal’s medical, behavior, and placement needs with you to help you find an animal who is compatible with your home environment and your lifestyle.  There are no time limits at WHS, all animals in adoption have as long as it takes to find a new loving home.  Stop in and speak with our adoption counseling team today – we look forward to meeting with you.
