Goose has been adopted as of December 2017!

Discover more adoptable pets in the Healthy Paws and Pawsitive Alliance “Why Not Me?” program.

We’ve partnered with Pawsitive Alliance for the #WhyNotMePets campaign to give difficult-to-home pets an extra paw up. These lovable pets are ready to find their forever homes.

“I am shy but once we get to know each other, I’ll be your best furry friend!”


Goose, a male domestic short hair cat, has been waiting with his sis at the shelter for almost two months – when they first arrived, they were so scared! Since then, they’re much less scared of humans and are ready to find a forever home. In the meantime, they’re resting rather comfortably in foster care.

At under a year old, Goose is very shy and it may take some time to get him acclimated to new surroundings. He will need a loving home with no small children to “learn how to cat” in peace. With a bit of time and care, Goose can be your best friend. As he’s young, he can adjust more readily than an older cat set in their ways! He has no major health issues and has a soft gray coat that begs for petting. Give him a window perch, and you’ll have a companion for life.

Goose’s sister Pippa ran on “Why Not Me?” just a few weeks ago; there is a discount if you adopt them together. Goose has been fully vetted, neutered and has all his shots. Find out more at Seattle Area Feline Rescue in Shoreline, WA, or call 206.659.6220.

Every Wednesday, Healthy Paws will highlight a new pet from Pawsitive Alliance’s #WhyNotMePets campaign. Visit the #WhyNotMePets page for a list of adoptable dogs and cats.
