Story is part of Homeward Bound’s 3rd Party Adoption listing for privately-owned Vermont animals. Pets posted for 3rd Party Adoption are not at the shelter. Homeward Bound staff has not seen or evaluated these pets and all information provided is as described by the owner. For any questions or to make an appointment to meet Story, please contact his/her current owner, Jasmine, at or (802) 324-2812.

Story is a 4.5-year old spayed, domestic long-haired mix female. Her current owner describes her as affectionate, friendly to all people, mostly a couch potato, but playful at times and loves to play with water at the sink.

Story loves to be held and involved in everything you do. She will run ahead of you and roll over for petting. She uses her litter box faithfully and is fully up-to-date on her medical care. She suffered an injury prior to current adoption and is given a joint supplement ($8/month). There are no mobility issues and she readily takes the supplement as if it were a treat.

Story is a beautiful, people-oriented cat, but must be the only pet in the home in order to have a peaceful, safe environment for other pets.

Story is FIV+ and cannot live with other cats, not only because of the FIV, but also because she is not friendly or tolerant of other cats and will attack them. She also has territorial aggression toward the dogs in the home. Because of this, her current owner is looking to find a new home for her. These dogs are gentle dogs and do not bother her and the owner remained hopeful, for over a year now, that Story would change her ways and live peacefully with the dogs. Rather than restrict the dogs’ movements and have to worry about Story attacking them at any moment, a new home is the best scenario for all involved.
