Meet Sissy, a female Siamese who is 10 years old.
Sissy came to the Humane Society of West Michigan when her owner passed away and she had nowhere to go. Sissy has lived with other cats, but would do best in a home that gives her a little time to decompress and a slow introduction. Sissy is loving but aloof and enjoys respectful pets and lounging in the sun!

Working cats are often cats that are under-socialized, but thrive in a less social environment. They are excellent pest control. Whether you have a barn, warehouse, or garden, working cats are skilled hunters that help keep rodents at bay without harmful chemicals. Adopting a working cat is a win-win – you provide a loving space to a deserving cat while enjoying a greener, more sustainable approach to pest control.
