Available for Adoption in Rutland, Vermont

Shale; friendly, beautiful, loving and warm, like all of the Orwell Jewels

Shale: August 11, 2019

Sweet, sweet Shale is from our Orwell Jewels location. He was part of a colony of cats that’s owner passed away.  Shale was on his own for several months before being rescued by us. Shale didn’t let fending for himself affect his love for people at all.  He is very cautious and a bit timid at first, but he melts to the touch. Shale loves being scratched and cuddled.

Shale: August 11, 2019. Luvs with foster mom

He has lovely soft long fur and beautiful green/yellow eyes. He is very gentle. He is great with other cats, cuddling up to his siblings when he’s nervous. His best friend is outgoing Topaz. He would love to be adopted with Topaz, but that is not a requirement. They are cute together because they look a lot alike!


Shale, like all the cats from the Orwell Jewels location, is FeLV, FIV and Heartworm negative (a good thing). He has received his Rabies 1year and FVRCP#2 vaccines. He has been treated for fleas, ear mites and common parasites. He was NPS (good) for his fecal sample. He has his very own microchip too!

Shale; August 11, 2019 – A happy cat!
