Adopt Me: Spud is looking for a calm home (adopted)

He often likes to find safe places to hide and high perches to rest on

OttawaMatters, in partnership with the Ottawa Humane Society, brings you a regular feature highlighting a special pet that is in need of adoption.


Meet Spud (ID# A230445), a white domestic short-hair cat looking for his forever family.

Spud needs a little patience and understanding, but once he feels comfortable, he is a wealth of love and affection.

The staff at the OHS call Spud a 'Poet'. Did you know that Poets thrive in calm, stable environments?

When things are a little too new and different, these kitties have a hard time showing their true personalities. Because Poets find change so hard, they usually like lots of safe places to hide and high perches to rest on.

With the Shirley Kearns Memorial Adoption Centre currently closed due to the COVID-19 outbreak, adoptions are currently done on an appointment basis. If you are interested in adopting me, please call the OHS to book an appointment at 613-725-3166 ext. 258.

Items you must have with you: proof of address, photo ID, animal carrier
