Meet Snowball:

Adoption Date: 11/11/2017

Intake Date: 7/26/2017

Adoption Announcement: 11/11/2017

Hello again! You might not remember me because I’ve been away from the Safe Place for Pets Welcome Center for quite a while now, but I wanted to come back to tell you about my new forever home and family.

I came to Safe Place for Pets in late July together with my four siblings. Three found their forever homes right away, but for my brother Raven and me, it took a bit longer. Raven has found his forever home too, but I’ll let him tell you his own story. This my chance to crow, not Raven’s! I was at the Safe Place for Pets Welcome Center for a while and it was fine. Everyone at the Welcome Center loved me. Who wouldn’t? But I really wanted a home of my own, and in October I kinda-sorta got my wish. I went into foster with the couple who eventually be my mom and dad! Of course it wasn’t really a forever home at that point, but it meant that I had a big beautiful house to run around in and people who could devote all their attention to me. I’ve already “let the cat out of the bag,” so to speak, so naturally my foster family fell in love with me and I with them.

You can see in my pictures how happy I am. I get to sleep with Mom and Dad and cuddle up with hem on the couch. A lot of times when we’re watching TV, I sit right behind Mom’s shoulder, and sometimes I drape myself over the top of it to be even closer to her. I’ve always liked to play, and Mom and Dad say that I’m quite the soccer cat when I find a stray water bottle cap to chase. I talk to them all the time, telling them what I want, but even more important, telling them how much I love them and how happy I am to finally be in my “furever” home!

I’d like to thank the folks at Safe Place for Pets for taking my siblings and me in when our prior dad died and Dr. Hand at Cook Veterinary Hospital (a Safe Place partner vet) for making sure that I was nice and healthy when I was ready to come home to Mom and Dad. I also want to thank the Safe Place volunteers for making the cozy snuggly for me to cuddle up on. It has its own special place on our couch. Thank you so much to everyone. I’m so happy that I could just melt!

Adoption Bio: 7/26/2017

Hi, Snowball here. It’s been a while now since I came to Safe Place for Pets, and I have been thinking that I should give everyone an update on how things have changed. For those of you who don’t know me, I am an indoor-only four-year-old male neutered domestic shorthair with claws. I’m a handsome fellow: pure white(of course!) with green eyes. By the way, you may have heard that pure white cats are deaf, but that’s only true if they have blue eyes. So I can hear you just fine!

I came to the Safe Place for Pets Welcome Center with my four siblings on July 28 after our dad died. The three girls have already found forever homes, so it’s just my brother Raven and I now, and Raven is on pre-adopt, the lucky guy. So now it’s just me. None of the SafePlace volunteers can understand why no one seems to want me. I’m very handsome – did I mention that? – loving, and playful. If you sit down, I will jump up in your lap so that you can love on me. If you are standing, I will stretch up and put my front paws on your thighs (I’m tall!) to remind you that I’m there. I’m also happy to help you with whatever paperwork you happen to be doing. Of course if you decide that I’m lots more fun than work, that’s fine by me!

I said that I’m playful. You ought to see me go after a laser light! I could chase those things forever -or at least until your wrists get to tired to play anymore. I also love catnip; it sends me straight to heaven. If you give me one of those catnip mice, I will bat it around until it vanishes underneath a couch or cabinet. Then I have to summon you to either fish it out or give me a new one. I do love having people at my beck and call. 😉

In short, I’m a wonderful guy who is still waiting for his forever home. Won’t you come see me? I just know that you’ll fall in love with me. You can make an appointment to come visit me either by emailing Safe Place at or call them at (719)359-0201. I really wish you would!
