Turtle Splash is a part of our Hardworking Cats program. This program is generally for cats that would not be suited for traditional adoption, but that would thrive as barn cats, warehouse mousers, or indoor/outdoor cats. Hardworking cats often enjoy a level freedom and independence that other cats may not require but can bring the benefit of chemical free pest control and successfully deter other unwanted animal guests from your property.

Turtle Splash came to Michigan Humane from an unfortunate hoarding situation. This means that she did not get the individualized socialization she needed as a kitten and as a result, is now a timid, fearful, and unsocial cat. Turtle Splash is not an outgoing gal, rather she is an independent lady that keeps to herself. She likes to hide and keep from sight but will come out at nighttime to feed, explore, and socialize with other cats. She arrived with 25+ other cats and seems to enjoy their company while in the shelter so she likely would get along with other cats in the home/barn with proper, slow introductions.

Due to her lack of socialization and timid nature, we believe that Turtle Splash would be best suited as a barn cat. If Turtle Splash is going to live in a barn, it is important that she be slowly introduced to the environment and contained for 1-2 weeks while adjusting as she has no known outdoor experience and may flee from her new home if allowed to roam free to quickly. It is also important that even though she will be an outdoor barn cat, her adopter will still need to provide food, water, and necessary vet care. Turtle Splash can get defensive if she feels threatened or her space is invaded, so it is important that her adopter understands she will likely never be a snuggly or social cat.
