Charlotte & Wilbur (S/N) Domestic Shorthair Adult Female in Marietta, Ohio

My story
Charlotte is a beautiful 1-1/2 year old female kitty who was surrendered by her owner on June 30, 2022 along with several other cats who had shared her previous home.

Charlotte has a shiny black short smooth coat, a long tail, and a pretty face with golden eyes, a black velvet nose, and long black whiskers.

This little lady has a sweet easygoing personality.

Charlotte was given vaccinations, wormer, and flea treatment on June 30, 2022. She weighed 7 lbs that day.

Charlotte was also combo tested on June 30th and is negative for feline leukemia and heartworm but tested positive for FIV [Feline Immunodeficiency Virus].

We are listing Charlotte as a 'Special Needs Kitty' for that reason but we prefer to think of her as merely very special for so many other reasons. A vigilant pet owner who treats secondary infections can assist an FIV-infected cat to live a reasonably long life. The chances that an FIV-infected cat will pass the virus to other cats within a household are slim to none if no serious fighting or biting occurs. Charlotte certainly seems like a LOVER and not a fighter~

After Charlotte had been in our shelter for several weeks, we discovered that Charlotte was most likely pregnant. Sure enough, Charlotte gave birth to two tiny kittens on July 23-24, 2022 One of her kittens passed away shortly after birth, but the second kitten (a gray male who has been named Wilbur) survived and is doing well.

Charlotte raised her one baby boy (Wilbur) under less-than-ideal conditions in a small shelter cage. Wilbur received the best care ever from mother Charlotte and also our HSOV Kennel Techs, and he has always been a happy playful youngster.

Wilbur was separated from his mother Charlotte soon after she was spayed on October 10th, so little Wilbur is now all by himself for the first time in his short life.

Wilbur was given first vaccinations on September 23, 2022 and booster vaccines on October 18, 2022.

Wilbur was neutered on November 21, 2022 and was also given rabies vaccine. He weighed 3.5 lbs that day. Wilbur is now available for adoption or rescue.

Charlotte is still in our shelter and has yet to find a home, so perhaps fate will magically bring Charlotte & Wilbur together again if they were to be adopted as a pair.

Rescue groups may contact our HSOV Feline Rescue Coordinator via email ( We can usually help with transportation.

UPDATE: Kitten Wilbur was adopted on December 3, 2022).

His mother Charlotte is still looking for someone to fall in love with her and offer her a loving home~
If you have any questions or would like to adopt Charlotte & Wilbur (S/N), please reach out to the adoption group directly. PetSmart Charities does not facilitate the adoption process. Thank you.
