About Sierra

Sweet Sierra is the kind of cat that shows us that hard things can be overcome through grace and good nature. Sierra has limited vision, but her ability to learn her surroundings has impressed her foster family. When Sierra first arrived at her foster home, it took her a few days of cautious exploration to figure out the lay of the land. Though her vision is diminished, her other senses are heightened: she loves toys that crinkle and jingle, and she understands the intonations of her favorite people, so much so that she seems to know when they need extra cuddles. Unlike many cats, she seems to enjoy music, and she was an attentive audience member for her foster brother's guitar practice. As much as she uses sound to help her orient herself, she uses her own voice to chat, question, and call for attention. Sierra loves being with her favorite people and will ask for gentle pets by putting her head near any moving hands and arms. Sierra is a true delight and is destined to be a committed companion and family member to whomever will give her the chance to show the immense love she has to give. Sierra has a visual impairment that limits her vision. She has some vision in her right eye and reasonable vision in her left. No ongoing care has been suggested for her eyes. She also has a chronic nasal condition that causes her to sneeze occasionally, but no treatment is needed at this time. Prior to adoption, all cats are spayed/neutered, tested for FIV/FELV, vaccinated and microchipped. This cat is currently in a foster home. To meet the cat, please fill out an adoption application so that we'll have your contact information, and we'll get back to you as soon as possible. Our adoption application is on our website here:  www.thedancingcat.org/adopt

Havana is a very sweet senior male Russian Blue mix. He is a stray being cared for by neighbors in a residential neighborhood in Martinez. He's calm, talkative, and very friendly. He stays by his human's side for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. He doesn't stray far and it is always easy to find him. No one knows his history. People say he has been around for a long time with no home. Neighbors who know him and feed him would like to see him find a forever home where he can live out his senior years. Havana might prefer to be an only pet. A few families who take care of him have other cats, and Havana hasn't been able to join the pack. They also don't believe he would enjoy dogs, though he has no known experience with this. The desire for Havana to be an only pet in his retirement is the main reason why they are helping him find a new forever home, indoors only. Over a year ago, Havana went to the veterinarian after a fight with another neighborhood cat, and after that he lived indoors to heal. He loved it! He used his litter box with no problem.  He is looking for an indoor-only retirement, perhaps with the option to enjoy a catio, backpack, or walks on a leash (you'll have to ask him what he thinks!)  Havana is not owned by The Dancing Cat. To arrange to meet him or find out more, email us at courtesy@thedancingcat.org. show less
