Low-key adoptable cats no spring chickens



Tippy – The Hermitage Cat Shelter

Tippy is an 8-year-old short-haired domestic male. He has a left “cauliflower ear” – just a little pinched-looking since birth. He is easy to get along with kids or grown-ups. He is friendly, very loving to everyone and has a fun, laid-back personality. Please come and see him; you’ll love him and want to take him home with you where he belongs. He’s been neutered, microchipped and wellness-checked like all the other cats at The Hermitage.

See Tippy at The Hermitage Cat Shelter, 5278 E. 21st St., which is open 1-4 p.m. Monday, Thursday and Friday; 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. The $55 adoption fee covers current vaccines, microchip, trial pet insurance and lots of cat care information. Call Monica at 571-7839 or go online to hermitagecatshelter.org for more details.

Ella – Humane Society

We’re sending out a “mayday” call for Ella, who’s been in the shelter since early December, waiting for someone to take her home. This pretty, 6-year-old has been overlooked time and again because she’s not a popular color among cat adopters, and just not as demonstrative as most people would like. Ella was originally brought to HSSA because of a health problem in her human family. She was a featured pet in the Citizen in February, and was well-behaved in an adoption spot on TV, but she’s still waiting for the right person to come along.

Ella is basically a loner who needs an understanding human and a quiet home where she can be the only pet. We know that she’ll adapt to a new home and be a great companion. After spending nearly five months in a cage, she’s really ready for a home – all she needs is someone willing to give her a chance. If you’re looking for a quiet pet who could really use some love, please consider this special feline!

Ella is one of many secondhand pets waiting at the Humane Society’s Adoption Center, 3450 N. Kelvin Blvd. Its new hours are 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday; noon-5 Sunday. For more information, call 327-6088 or visit hssaz.org.



Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.

For all of the stories that were archived by the Tucson Citizen newspaper's library in a digital archive between 1993 and 2009, go to Morgue Part 2
