I have cabin fever, I’ve been here for a whole year now! Due to this, my adoption fee has been reduced to $50.00.

Full Description:   Hola! My name is Diego! I am a handsome young boy who loves to play and is very sweet. Here’s my story:

I was originally brought to the shelter when I was just a year old and my owner was moving and couldn’t take me with her. I was really sad because I thought that she was my forever home and would have taken me with her anywhere, but it just didn’t work out. I adjusted to life in the shelter and made friends with some of the other kitties here. I really enjoyed all the attention and love I got from the staff, but I still longed for a forever home of my own.

Then, earlier this year, a nice woman came to the shelter looking to adopt a feline friend. She looked at all the cats in the shelter…and she chose me!! I was so happy! I was going to my new forever home! I couldn’t wait! Unfortunately, my happiness was short-lived. It was discovered that one of my new owner’s visiting grandkids is allergic to cats and I was brought back to shelter less than a week later. What a bummer! I just can’t believe my bad luck. So, here I am back at the shelter waiting again for a forever home. But I’m not giving up hope that someone out there wants to adopt a kitty like me….I just know the third times a charm!

I promise you, I’m a good boy. Not only am I handsome, I am very friendly and fun. I love to play with toys (the sparkly crinkly balls are my fav!) and I am very talkative. Come meet me at the shelter and let me show you what a great kitty I am!

Please call the Humane Society of North Iowa at 641-423-6241 for more information.

Adoption fee covers the following veterinarian services: spay/neuter surgery, age-appropriate vaccinations, flea and dewormer treatment, feline leukemia/FIV test in cats, heartworm test for dogs.
