Esteban the Cat is Looking for a New Fuurever Home in Calgary!

Hi there! My name is Esteban and my foster mom says I am a very shy and quiet kitty at first but once I get comfortable I am very vocal and cuddly. I’m not super playful but I do LOVE catnip, so much I will open cabinets and doors just to go and steal it. I am nervous of strangers and will sometimes hiss when I meet new people because it is scary but I do get really attached to my human once they give me time and space to feel at home. For this reason I would prefer a calm and quiet home with no kiddos and someone who is experienced reading cat body language. I am a kitty that needs time and patience to bond and get comfortable! I am clearly a very handsome kitty and I am noted to be a calm cat that doesn’t scratch furniture or tear down the x-mas tree! All the more reason for you to ask about me today!!



Breed: Domestic Shorthair
Age: 8 years 1 month 9 days

***Esteban is currently staying with a foster family, please contact the Adoption Department at to arrange a meet and greet. We work on a first come first serve basis, and will set up meet and greets with interested adopters in the order we receive them. Our team will be in contact with you as soon as possible to update you on where we are in the meet and greet process of the animal you are interested in. Please do NOT book an appointment using the online calendar as that is reserved for animals available for adoption on-site.

In response to COVID-19, Calgary Humane Society is closed to the public. We are currently processing adoptions and animal intakes by appointment only. For more information about our modified adoption process, please click here.

In order to ensure a smooth and successful adoption, please remember to check all the basic requirements for adopting before coming in to the shelter.
