Meet The Real Shelter Cats of West Virginia… and They’re Adoptable, Too!

Meet The Real Shelter Cats of West Virginia… and They’re Adoptable, Too!

Not a typo, we said CATS!


By Stacy Lenz

Every once in a while something comes along that shakes up a beloved franchise. Much like how Shannon Beador arrived in Season 9 of The Real Housewives of Orange County (we love you, Shan!), we have a breath of fresh for the Real Shelter Dogs and — guess what, guys — it’s cats.

These rejuvenating cats come to us from the Humane Society of Raleigh County located in Beckley, West Virginia. The Humane Society of Raleigh County is a nonprofit whose focus is preventing animal abuse and neglect by finding loving homes for all the animals in their community. We originally became aware of this shelter because of a viral Facebook post featuring cats in need of adoption. It served as an important reminder to us that cats, though they may seem more self-sufficient than their fur-brother doggos, still need forever homes.

And now, put down that catnip and meet your Real Shelter Cats, complete with opening-credits worthy taglines!

“I invented cuddles and I have the patent to prove it.” — Cookie

Cookie is a studious girl who enjoys dinners by the fire, Sunday afternoon naps in the sunlight, and will gladly curl up in your lap to enjoy a good book.  She is around 12 years old.

“In my world, keeping it real is everything and I’ve got cat-titude.” — Ann

“Being a kitten is a full time job. Being fabulous is a calling.” — Macallan

Macallan is a sweet snuggly boy and is ready to allow his human to give him a bowl of kitty kibble and rub his belly.  He will be glad to adopt you and make you his home.  He is still very much a kitten at seven months old.

“Cats are like a fine wine, we just get better with age.” — Gidget

Gidget is a swanky senior who enjoys the company of people and other cats.  She is looking for a retirement home to keep her fed, warm, and loved.
