Shadow is a senior kitty who arrived at the shelter with his friend Sassy, when their owner died without a pet plan in place. It has taken us a while to list Shadow, because he came in weighing only 6 pounds, with severe hyperthyroidism that had apparently been undermedicated for at least a year. We got him on track with the right dosage and he is looking great after just 6 weeks! Hyperthyroidism is fairly common in senior cats (we know Shadow is at least 8, and could be more). The treatment that is working for Shadow is a small pill given morning and evening; the medication costs less than 70 cents per day, and we have no trouble getting him to eat his pill when tucked into a small ball of wet food, or into a pill pocket and then put . . . → Read More: New adoptable cat: SHADOW
Sassy is a lovely, but very shy and frightened, Siamese mix girl who arrived at the shelter when her owner died without a pet plan in place. Sassy is a little over 4 years old. She will be someone’s wonderfully rewarding “special project cat” – the kind that really NEED to be rescued, and when she gives you that first purr or head-butt, you’ll know you’ve done something magical for her.
Sassy’s ideal home will be a calm, quiet haven. She doesn’t seem to mind other cats, so could fit in well with an existing zen-like kitty, but will probably do best without a frenetic kitten pouncing on her. She will be expected to hide – she likes to hide inside boxes, tents, bags, anywhere “cave-like” – but will venture out when she knows it is safe and just . . . → Read More: Featured cat: SASSY!
Tinka is a sweet, gentle girl who is declawed on her front feet, which means she must be an indoor-only cat. Unlike many Siamese, Tinka has a soft, delicate meow. She loves having her ears rubbed, is used to having baths, and likes to spend time snuggling on the couch with her person. Tinka arrived at the shelter because her people moved into a small travel-trailer, and it was too cramped for both their cats. She is about 2 years old.
Tinka was tolerant of the other cat in her home; we think she would warm up to a friendly dog eventually, but she is a little bit timid around people and animals she doesn’t know. She would like a quiet, calm home – Tinka would be perfect for a retired person or couple, or as an apartment cat . . . → Read More: New adoptable cat: TINKA

This past weekend we listed 6 new pets who arrived at the shelter after their owner died without a pet plan in place. These 5 cats and 1 dog came in a little frightened and confused, but now seem pretty happy and grateful. It seems that fortune is smiling on them, too, because of the six, only Adelie (the shy orange girl) and Albatross (the fluffy black boy) are still available – it looks like the other 4 will have placement offers going out by the end of the evening!
If you might have a spot in your family for Adelie or Albatross, please check out their listings on our Cat Page (just click on their photos to bring up the full listings).
Miso is a funny, happy, very laid-back 6 year old girl, who arrived at the shelter with her kittens (our current “C” litter) when their owner decided they just had too many cats to care for. She is definitely part Siamese, with medium length fur, a pretty and unusual coat, and adorably goofy crossed eyes.
Miso will be a very easy-care cat; she is affectionate, but not demanding, and prefers relaxing in a sunspot to… well, just about anything! She would do fine as an indoor or indoor-outdoor cat, and would be a terrific “starter pet” for a first-time pet owner, or an apartment pet. While she seems to be tolerant of other cats, she doesn’t much care if she has a cat buddy or not, so would do fine as an only pet.

…and it begins again, the latest summer kitten caboodle! In the past 2 weeks, the shelter has taken in 32 cats and kittens (plus one temporary resident mom-cat who will go home after her kittens are weaned and mom has been spayed). We are starting off today with 7 of our new arrivals.
The 4 “shades of grey” kittens in the top row were all born 4/7/11. They arrived from a feral colony – at first, we thought they were all going to have to go back as part of the Trap-Neuter-Return process because they were a bit too old, but the property owner did a great job socializing them and they are now able to go out as pets. These 4 have already been spayed/neutered and can go . . . → Read More: New adoptable kittens listed 7/15/11

Clockwise from upper left: Abdula, Bowersox, Cavil, Cowell, Yokozawa, Kara, Jackson, Honshu
Cavil, Kara, Cowell, Abdula, and Bowersox (“group 2″) are siblings, and were brought to the shelter after their mother cat’s owner abandoned her. A kind neighbor took her in, raised her adorable kittens, then had mama kitty spayed and asked us to find great homes for these cuties.
These kittens, who were born 7/5/10, are all wonderfully socialized, and will be fantastic pets for any home. If you want more than one, these 5 have all been together since birth and can be mixed and matched in any combination with a happy result. Bowersox is a black/brown/grey tabby female with gorgeous markings.
Yokozawa, Honshu, and Jackson (“group 3″) are siblings, born 8/11/10, and were brought to the shelter as orphaned/abandoned kittens when . . . → Read More: New adoptable cats: Yokozawa and Honshu the Siamese mixes and Cavil, Kara, Cowell, Abdula, Bowersox, and Jackson
