Warren was adopted but now needs another home

By Katie Demeria

FRONT ROYAL — Warren needs a home — again.

The gray and white, medium-hair cat was a kitten at the Humane Society of Warren County. He was found as a stray when he was between 8 and 10-weeks-old and later adopted.

Now, when he is a little over a year old, he is looking for a new forever home.

Feline team leader Michael Kerns said Warren was an owner surrender, returning to the shelter on June 16.

“He’s a bit skittish,” Kerns said. “He prefers a home without too much commotion or anything going on.”

He is a large cat, at about 15 pounds. He has gotten a little chubbier since returning to the shelter, Kerns pointed out, mostly because he cannot get much exercise when spending all his time in a cage.

But he likely would not require a diet upon being adopted.

“A lot of times when cats are here, they plump up from being here, then being in a home they naturally lose it,” Kerns said.

Warren likes to keep to himself, Kerns said, though he does enjoy being petted and purrs a lot.

He can also sometimes be skittish about being picked up, according to Kerns, but that is likely due to the activity going on in the kennel because Warren prefers a quieter area. He would be good with kids that do not handle him too much, and requires some grooming.

Right now, Warren is one of more than 200 cats at the shelter waiting to be adopted, some of which are kept at the shelter while others are in foster homes. Kerns said they are in need of more foster homes.

Already neutered, Warren’s adoption fee is $15.
