Meet Katniss!



Katniss (A427122) is a very cautious cat that could benefit from a patient adopter who will give her the time to adjust to her new surroundings. When approached, she usually runs, but when she's ready to be picked up, she will lie down flat on the floor. She's very playful, loves her toys (especially the catnip mouse and soft fluffy ball), and has a very pleasant "singing voice" when she's asking for food. After a long day of naps, snacking on treats, and playing, she likes to lie down on a warm cozy lap and purr until she falls asleep. She is litter box-savvy, vaccinated, FIV/FelV negative and ready to find the puurrfect home. If you are interested in adopting Katniss, email!

For the month of July, we are featuring our Dapper Dogs & Classy Cats promotion, where the adoption fees for both dogs and cats are only $10. The adoption fees include sterilization, vaccinations and a microchip.

Orange County Animal Services is located at 2769 Conroy Road in Orlando, near the Mall at Millenia. The shelter is open 10 a.m. through 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and from 1 p.m. through 5 p.m. Sunday. For more information, please call 407-836-3111 or visit
