Zoe arrived at the shelter on February 3rd, skinny and scruffy. She was terrified at first, but with some good food and love, she gained weight & her fur became thick and glossy. Then she came out of her shell.  Zoe is a beautiful, 2-3 year old, spayed female, black and white cat. She is laid back and affectionate and she loves to get attention. Come meet this pretty kitty today!

Zoe likes to play with wand toys and catnip mice. She is scared of other cats and dogs, she would love to be an only pet. Unfortunately, now she has been at the shelter for 6 months, she is starting to get very depressed and nervous about coming out of her cage. Once she gets into a home, she will be fine, she just really needs to find her forever family soon! Because Zoe has been at the shelter so long, her adoption fee is reduced!! You can find out more about the pets available when you Email the Rome Humane Society of Oneida County. Or visit them at 6247 Lamphear Road.

Call to find out about Zoe at  the Rome Humane Society, 336-7070.
