Animal Harbor, a limited-admission, nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization operated by members of the Franklin County Humane Society, has a number of pets that would make great companions.

This week, Animal Harbor is spotlighting cats Hildi and Andy.

Hildi is a 2-year-old grey tabby cat who appears shy until she spends time getting to know you. She loves her time spent outdoors on the shelter’s cat patio, where she sits on the highest shelf to gaze down.

Shelter manager Emily Holland said Hildi would love a home where she can lay in a window and watch birds.

“She is friendly with children and other cats and is so soft and cuddly. We think she would make a variety of families a great loving companion,” Holland said.

Hildi is up-to-date on all vaccinations, FIV/FeLV negative, medically cleared, spayed and microchipped.

Andy is a 3-year-old solid black cat who was adopted as a kitten and returned to the shelter when his owner had to move.

“As sad as we were that Andy was returned to the shelter, we are happy that he has the chance to find a forever home once and for all,” Holland said. “Andy could use an owner who is understanding of his quirky personality and slightly fluffy appearance.”

Andy loves human affection, but does not like to be held for long periods. Even though he could not be described as a lap cat, Holland said he will offer companionship and while being independent.

Andy is up-to-date on all vaccinations, FIV/FeLV negative, medically cleared, neutered and microchipped.
