Adopt Me: Galileo needs a patient owner (adopted)

He is looking for a quiet home and a little understanding

OttawaMatters, in partnership with the Ottawa Humane Society, brings you a regular feature highlighting a special pet that is in need of adoption.


Meet Galileo (ID# A218247), a playful three-year-old black domestic short-haired cat looking for his forever family.

'I have a lot of love to give; I just need a patient partner. I might need an extra minute to find my courage, but underneath this bashful exterior is a reservoir of love and wisdom.

If you are patient enough to tap into it, I want nothing more than to show my affections. I am looking for a quiet home and a little understanding, but I promise once I feel safe I will be loyal to you all of my days. Will you take a chance on me? You’ll never regret it!

I have oral health care needs; please contact an Adoption staff member to inquire about me “Galileo” shelter number A218427.'

Galileo is relaxing at the Ottawa Humane Society. Please contact 613-725-3166 ext. 258 to book an appointment to meet him!
