Animal Profile

Jose Maria

Hello, my name is Jose Maria. My animal id is #61937. I am a desexed male gray cat at the . The shelter thinks I am about 5 months 4 weeks old.

I came into the shelter as a owner surrender on 5/5/2019, with the surrender reason stated as person circumstance- cannot afford to care for.


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

Jose Maria is at risk for medical reasons. Jose Maria was diagnosed with an upper respiratory infection which is contagious to other animals and will require in home care. Behaviorally, Jose Maria would be best suited for an experienced cat owner as she can take a bit of time to warm up.

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

A staff member writes: Hi humans, my name is Jose Maria and I came into MACC what feels like forever ago. I'm a 5 month old kitten with a heart full of love, but I'm just a little scared to show it right now. I was surrendered by my humans due to my medical bills. I was born with a really bad eye. I didn't notice it at first but as I got older, it got worse and A LOT more painful. The amazing staff here at MACC were able to remove my bad eye and believe it or not, I feel even better now that it's gone! In the shelter I'm really scared. I allow for petting and some handling, and show no signs of aggression, but I just need a home all to myself. I like other cats and at my last home I lived with 9 of them! I promise, if you give me a chance I'll be the sweetest cat you've ever had! EYE promise you!
