HELENA — The Lewis and Clark Humane Society (LCHS) currently has a lonely cat, feeling the blues.
Memphis is a two year old long haired cat that came into the shelter as a stray.
The ideal home for Memphis is a quiet place that has a patient owner who can take time to work with him.
Small kids or rambunctious dogs are not the best for Memphis as he’s easily startled.
LCHS staff do their best, but the shelter can be a stressful place for animals.
Cat Coordinator Katie Axline-Pittman says super stressed cats can develop immune issues.
“It’s not a home,” said Axline-Pittman. “You’ve got to think you’re surrounded by a bunch of people, cats or dogs and noises that you don’t know and you’re not familiar with. That’s stressful. It would be super beneficial for him the sooner he gets out the better.”
LCHS allows for a 14 day trial period with most cats to make sure the home is the right fit for the animal.
