Denver 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. 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 home.

Denver came to Michigan Humane from an unfortunate hoarding situation. This means that Denver did not get the individualized socialization needed as a kitten and as a result, is now a timid, fearful, and a unsocial cat. Denver is not outgoing, rather an independent soul. Denver likes to hide and keep from sight but will come out at nighttime to feed, explore, and socialize with other cats. Denver arrived with 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 lack of socialization and timid nature, we believe that Denver would be best suited as a warehouse cat. If Denver is going to live in a warehouse, it is important that it be done slowly and be introduced to the environment and contained for 1-2 weeks while adjusting. It is also important that even though Denver will be an warehouse cat, the adopter will still need to provide food, water, and necessary vet care. Denver can get defensive feeling threatened or space is invaded, so it is important that the adopter understands Denver will likely never be a snuggly or social cat.
