Animal Profile


Hello, my name is Kiriana. My animal id is #67251. I am a female brown tabby cat at the . The shelter thinks I am about 10 years 2 weeks old.

I came into the shelter as a owner surrender on 6/26/2019, with the surrender reason stated as person health - allergies.


Someone has already placed a deposit on me. I'm no longer available.

Kiriana is at risk for behavioral reasons. Kiriana has remained stressed in the care center and has not allowed for handling. Kiriana would be best suited for placement with a new hope partner that can provide a gradual approach to help her acclimate to new environments. Medically, she has an upper respiratory infection which is contagious.

Let's get to know each other a bit more...

A volunteer writes: Curious, confident, and comfortable with humans-that's gorgeous Kiriana in a nutshell. When I introduced myself to this gentle brown tabby last night, the first thing she did was sniff the pen I was writing with, and then she sniffed my hand. I guess I passed her test, because she seemed to relax even more during our time together and even sprawled out on her side and dozed off to sleep, which I took to be a sign of trust. I don't know for sure what Kiriana was dreaming about, but I imagine it's to find a new family to adore her like she knows she deserves. Be the lucky pet parent who gets to take this elegant lady home and show her what true love really means.

My medical notes are...
