New adoptable cat: COQUETTE

Coquette

Coquette

Coquette is a beautiful torbie with white girl, about 2 years old, who arrived as a stray. She has a funny, kinked tail – it bends like it was caught in a door, but it may have been that way since she was born. She is a little bit timid in new situations and meeting new people and cats, but warms up quickly once she gets to know you. She is affectionate, but not pushy about it, and would make a good indoor or indoor/outdoor kitty. We think she would prefer a quiet, relaxed home, and she would be fine as an only cat or with another kitty or two, preferably kitties that won’t bully her but will accept her presence with a friendly attitude.

Today’s featured cat: ICICLE!

Icicle

Icicle

Icicle is one of the kitties that arrived in September 2012, when we took in 21 cats and kittens from one location. There are only 4 of those cats/kittens, like Icicle, still looking for forever homes!

Icicle was born about 9/7/12, is affectionate and playful, and should do well in pretty much any sort of home, from indoor-only with one human, to indoor-outdoor with a 15-member family. If you are hoping for a pair of kitties, her sister Irmagard is also still available – instant family!

See Icicle’s full listing here.

 

Today’s featured cat: CHACHALACA!

Chachalaca

Chachalaca

Chachalaca is a really pretty and unusual “dilute torbie” – a pastel tortoiseshell (cream, grey, white) with tabby pattern. She technically arrived as part of a feral colony on which we were doing trap-neuter-return, but she is just too darn friendly and affectionate to spend the rest of her life fending for herself in a colony, so she was promoted to the adoption program. We think Chachalaca is about 3 years old; she is pretty easy-going with the other cats in her room, and although she doesn’t like to be picked up, she LOVES to play and is a great combination of affection and independence. She’d be a great indoor-outdoor cat for just about any type of lifestyle.

New adoptable cat: SHADOW

Shadow

Shadow

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

 

Today’s featured cat: CACIQUE!

Cacique

Cacique

Cacique came in as a stray with 5 kittens in tow back in July 2012; as so often happens, the kittens are all happily growing up in their adoptive homes, and Cacique is still waiting for someone to invite her into their family. We’ve given her a guesstimated birth date of March 2011. Cacique is friendly, happy, and playful. She is a medium haired tabby with just a touch of “torbie” (tortoiseshell/tabby) coloring. Unfortunately, during her very long stay at the shelter, Cacique has become quite overweight; we have her on a diet and exercise program, but she really needs a forever home to give her the attention she needs to fill that emptiness inside her… kitty kibble is a poor substitute for cuddles and love.

Cacique gets along well with other cats once she gets to know them and they have . . . → Read More: Today’s featured cat: CACIQUE!

 

Featured cats: our leftover kittens!

Engelbert

We have four kittens, born 9/3 (Engelbert) and 9/7 (the three “I” sisters), who have watched pretty much all the other kittens head out to their new homes… these four are still waiting, but we know there are great homes out there for each of them!

Engelbert is a medium-haired boy; Icicle, Iliana, and Irmagard are shorthaired girls.

You can see their full listings on our Cats page – just click on their photos to bring up the listings.

Kittens love to go home in pairs, but can also go alone. Adoption fee is $58 for one kitten, $98 for a pair; these kittens have been spayed/neutered, vaccinated with their 3 kitten vaccines, microchipped and wormed. They will need rabies vaccination between 4-6 months of age.

Featured adoptable cat: CARDINAL

Cardinal

Cardinal

Cardinal is a handsome and affectionate young tabby boy, born we think in October 2011. He came in with a big rat trap stuck on his right front paw; thanks to funding from the Cats of Microsoft Calendar, we were able to go the extra mile and treat Cardinal’s paw; for a while we thought he might lose it, but he has slowly been healing and has regained most use (even “kneading” while he purrs during cuddle sessions!)

See his full listing here – he’ll make a great new family member!

(TOP): Galahad, Harmonica, Gawain
(BOTTOM): Calandra, Harlequin, Hamlet, CaraCara

(TOP): Galahad, Harmonica, Gawain(BOTTOM): Calandra, Harlequin, Hamlet, CaraCara

Forget Me Not recently took in 5 mama kitties with a total of 16 babies, all from one location. Two of the mamas and one baby have already been spoken for, but we are now beginning to list the rest of the adoptable kitties.

In today’s post we are introducing two of the mamas – Calandra and CaraCara – along with two of the distinct litters. Our “G” litter has two adorable black and white boys: Galahad and Gawain, born 8/5/12. Our “H” litter, born 8/19/12, has two girls: Harmonica and Harlequin, plus their brother Hamlet.

All these cats and kittens will be ready for release on or before 10/27/12 – see their full listings on our website’s cat page.

 

Today’s featured cat: AMBER

Amber

 

Amber

Amber is a healthy, friendly senior, who ended up at the shelter in 2011 when her owner’s disabilities worsened. She was adopted in November 2011, but recently came back to the shelter because she just couldn’t accept the other kitty in the home. This means Amber will do best as an only cat!

Amber will be turning 11 years old in July 2012, and is a very laid-back kitty, who spends most of her time relaxing in her favorite shelter basket. She would be a great companion for a retired person or couple, and could also be a good family pet in a single-pet home.

Amber is not a big fan of being picked up; she loves to be petted and brushed, but likes her feet best firmly on the ground. Amber is a really easy, “out of . . . → Read More: Today’s featured cat: AMBER

 

New adoptable cat: FURBY

Furbysmall

Furby

Poor Furby – he was originally adopted from us back in 2005, and joined his perfect family, where he was allowed to sleep in the bed and absolutely loved his life; unfortunately, his family was unable to keep him and also unable to find him a new home, so he was returned to us and we are going to try again.

Furby is declawed on his front feet, which means he must be an indoor-only cat. He absolutely loves all the people he meets, but he does NOT like other cats, so his perfect home will be as an only-cat to a family or person who will keep him inside and love him as much as he will love them. He doesn’t have a lot of time at the shelter, because we have to either house him alone in . . . → Read More: New adoptable cat: FURBY

 

New adoptable cat: TIFFANY

Tiffany9

Tiffany

MEET TIFFANY: she is a beautiful medium-haired torbie (tortoiseshell/tabby) girl, who is declawed on the front paws (awwwwww). Her owner couldn’t care for her, so she is patiently waiting at the shelter for someone to bring her home. See more photos, video, and description at her full listing: TIFFANY

 

Adoptable Cat, long-timer: PEANUT

0906Peanut5

Peanut

Peanut is a beautiful medium-haired tabby and white girl. She has been with us since early July, when she arrived with her 3-week-old kittens in tow. Peanut has been a great mom, and the kittens are fully weaned – most have already found their forever homes, and now it is Peanut’s turn.

Peanut is very friendly and affectionate, and is definitely a lap kitty. She would enjoy pretty much any indoor or indoor/outdoor home, where she can have a lap when she wants one and can have a few short brushing sessions each week to keep that gorgeous coat in great shape. Given a choice, she would rather cuddle than play, so an affectionate family is a must for Peanut. She seems tolerant of other cats, too.

New adoptable cats: Peanut’s Kittens!

Peanut Kittens

Macadamia, Cashew, Filbert, Chestnut, Pistachio

 

These kittens were born 6/17/11, and were surrendered to the shelter along with their mom Peanut when the kittens were just 2 weeks old. We’ve had them fostering with our wonderful Foster Mama Charlene, and as a result, the kittens are all wonderfully socialized, very easy to handle, affectionate, curious, and playful – they will all be great in any type of family.

These kittens, who will be ready to go home August 27, have never been outside, and will do best as indoor-only kitties (though they may adapt well to supervised outdoor visits, either with harness/leash or in a safe, enclosed area with their person).

See their listings, with many more photos and a video, from our Cats Page.

 

New adoptable kittens listed 7/15/11

Kittens listed 7-15-11

(top row) Durango, Donastia, Delgado, DonBenito (bottom row) Pattani, Rocket, Lampang

…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

 

New adoptable cat: SILVER

Silver7

Silver, medium-haired grey tabby for adoption

Silver is a a friendly, open girl whose owner could not care for her, so she is now waiting for you to invite her home. Silver’s estimated birth date is March 1, 2009, so she’s between 2-3 now. She has a lovely, medium length grey tabby coat and arresting golden eyes.

Silver is an extremely affectionate cat – she has a definite “lap-cat” quality, and loves to be petted and brushed. She is easy-going, enjoys the other cats she’s met so far, and has a curious and trusting nature. She would be great in a home with children, and would appreciate having an inviting lap available much of the time. She was an outside cat before arriving at the shelter, and seems to be really enjoying . . . → Read More: New adoptable cat: SILVER

 

New adoptable cats: JUPITER and MINERVA

Jupiter and Minerva

Jupiter and Minerva

Jupiter and Minerva are tabby and white sibling cats, who were born about 5/1/10, making them just over 1 year old. They were part of 8 cats surrendered by one person, who 2 years ago had 1 cat, but she was an unspayed female – we all know how that goes! Now Jupiter, Minerva, their mom Gizmo, and Gizmo’s brand new litter of kittens are all at the shelter, looking for new homes. (Gizmo and the kittens will not be ready to adopt until mid-June; we’ll list them soon).

Jupiter is a pretty outgoing and confident boy who is happy to explore… play with toys… be cuddled… it’s all an adventure to Jupiter. He’d be fine as an indoor or indoor-outdoor cat.

New adoptable cat: Buster

Bustersmall

Buster

Buster is a super friendly and huggable juvenile boy who arrived as a stray. It’s hard to believe no one ever came looking for him, but that means this fantastic cat is ready to become YOUR new best friend. He has a sunny disposition, seems to enjoy the company of other cats, and adores every human he meets. We’ve estimated his birth date as 6/1/10. Can you help Buster find his forever home before his first birthday this June?

New adoptable cat: Janus

Janus6

Janus

Janus is a very handsome orange tabby boy who came in as a stray. He is a young adult, probably between 1-2 years old, so we have given him a birth date of 3/1/09. Janus is comfortable with the other cats in his cat room – they are all girl kitties, and they all seem to like this “ladies’ man” cat as much as he likes them! (Yes, they are all spayed/neutered, so it’s not that)!

Janus is a bit shy around dogs, but warms up quickly to humans. He would do fine as an only cat, or he should adjust well to having a cat companion or two; he enjoys attention from people, and will make a pretty easy, low-maintenance family pet in an indoor or indoor-outdoor home.
