The Oregon Humane Society’s Cat of the Day is Prince. This is a story about a little Prince. He once lived in a home, and life was good. One day, his people moved, and he was left behind. The little Prince spent much of thereafter living the hardknock life on the streets, being fed by neighbors who took pity on him. When he was seven years old during one of his perpetual quests for food and shelter, he found himself at the doorstep of a local business, where a good samaritan brought him to the Oregon Humane Society to start a new life: one in which he would no longer have to worry about his next meal or finding a warm place to sleep. Prince feels overwhelmed by all of this sudden change, but he has a sweet and very gentle heart. He has a generally independent nature, though he does enjoy being petted and can be quite talkative. Prince has only been around adults and opens up to the people he's familiar with while remaining cautious of strangers. He is accustomed to being around other cats though he is annoyed by young kittens and tends to just walk away from them. A quiet, mature home would suit him best. You can be the one to grant this gentle little Prince his happily ever after home! You can meet with him at the Oregon Humane Society, 1067 NE Columbia Blvd., Portland 503-285-7722. Viewing hours are Sun-Wed 10-7; Thurs-Sat 10-9. Adoption hours are Sun-Wed 10-6:30; Thurs-Sat-10-8:30.
Every Tuesday the Oregon Humane Society offers an adoption special for people age 60 and up. A select group of 15 pets will be available for adoption to seniors at no charge every Tuesday. All other pets will have their adoption fees reduced by $50 when they are adopted by individuals over 60 on Tuesday. If a perfect match cannot be found among the 15 free pets, all other pets at the shelter will be $50 off the listed adoption fee, only for individuals 60 years of age or older
