Pearl might look like she has some cattitude, but deep down she is a sweetheart. She is a fan of scratches behind her ears and the joy of long, leisurely naps in the sun. Do you have the perfect spot in your home for this pearl?

Cattitude Adoption Promotion, Feb. 23-March 3

Have you ever loved a cat with attitude? Or maybe a cranky or moody kitty? If you answered “yes,” then you’ve loved a cat with “cattitude.” Cattitude cats are still beautiful, sleek, playful and affectionate but they need a special kind of person, someone patient, understanding and tolerant of their sometimes sassy ways.

The Nevada Humane Society has a number of cattitude kitties in need of love. Cattitide cats are not for everyone. Are you up for the challenge?

Now through March 3, cats with “cattitude” can be adopted for $10. Other adult cats cost $25 and adult dogs are $40 (4 months and older, excluding specially priced dogs). Each dog and cat is neutered, vaccinated and microchipped, making these adoption fees a true bargain.

With adoption, the Nevada Humane Society will sweeten the deal with a month’s supply of cat food.

“I am the proud owner of a beautiful calico-tabby cat with enough cattitude for several cats,” said Lilli Walker, special events manager at Nevada Humane Society. “My cat, Kashmir, can be moody and feisty at times but I love her and wouldn’t want her any other way.”

“While we have many mild-mannered pets available for adoption, some experienced pet owners actually find it rewarding to help a pet that has a quirky personality or one that is a bit too spunky for most people,” said Bonney Brown, executive director of NHS. “Thanks to the transforming power of love, many pets that start out a bit cranky or moody actually become affectionate companions as they get to know and trust their new person. It’s a really rewarding feeling to win over a cat that has ‘cattitude.’ ”

The Nevada Humane Society is located at 2825 Longley Lane in Reno and is open for adoptions Sunday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., and 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. on Saturdays. For more information, call 856-2000 or e-mail
