This cat suffered frostbite to its ears. She is now ready to be adopted.

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – A cat who suffered severe frostbite to her ears is now ready to be adopted from Fort Wayne Animal Care & Control.

Circe, a two-year-old black cat, was found by a Good Samaritan during the last Winter Blast in Fort Wayne when wind chills were around 45 degrees below zero. She lost tissue from both of her ears due to the frostbite.

Shelter employees say Circe is a sweet and friendly cat, which makes her a perfect candidate for any family.

Adoption profiles for Circe will be accepted on Thursday and Friday.  The shelter will use a lottery system to select a candidate who will be given an opportunity to meet and interact with Circe on Monday, February 10 between noon and 5:30 p.m.

Due to the number of people who have expressed an interest in her, only the family whose profile is drawn will be given an opportunity to meet Circe. The shelter will select two alternates in the event that the first candidate declines the adoption.

To apply for the adoption of Circe:

• Print a Pet Adoption Profile from the Animal Care & Control website at and fax it to (260) 427-5514

• Come to the shelter, 3020 Hillegas Road, between the hours of noon and 5 p.m. on either Thursday or Friday to complete a profile.

• Be sure to write “Circe Adoption” on the profile
