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.

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.

Cassowary is a beautiful medium-haired bob-tailed tortoiseshell girl who came in as a stray. We waited quite a while to list her because we were SURE someone must be looking for her, but that does not appear to be the case, so it’s time to find Cassowary (Cassie for short) a new family. She seems to be a young but full-grown adult, possibly around 2-3 years old. See her full listing HERE.

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

…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
Nike is having a bad hair day. Well, OK, it will be more like a bad hair month… or two. As you can see from her head and tail, Nike is a gorgeous long-haired dilute tortoiseshell girl, with beautiful grey, cream, and white patterning. Unfortunately, due to who knows how long spent outside without love and regular grooming, she was so matted when she arrived at the shelter that all we could do was remove much of her fur along her sides and back, right down to the skin. It will grow back as baby-fine and silky as the fur we were able to comb out on her tail, but it will take a couple of months for her to be her fully beautiful self. She’s a little bit embarrassed to have you see her like this, but we . . . → Read More: New adoptable cat: NIKE
Juno (photo: Lance Young)
Juno has been at the shelter since mid-February, but that was in our twitter/blog/facebook “black hole” period, so she hasn’t been properly introduced as an adoptable cat.
Juno is a gorgeous tortoiseshell tuxedo girl who arrived as a stray; we are guessing she is about 2 years old, so have given her a birth date of 3/1/09. Juno is a pretty independent girl, but she does like brief sessions of petting and play. She seems to be fairly stressed-out with all the other girl kitties at the shelter (hey, if I had to live in one room with 5 other girls, I might be a little cranky, too). We think Juno would do best in a home with one other cat (preferably male), or as an only cat. She would enjoy either an indoor only, or . . . → Read More: Featured Adoptable Cat: Juno
Cybele has an odd story, sure wish she could talk! About 4 years ago, Cybele showed up as a stray at a local animal lover’s home. She hung around long enough to be spayed and vaccinated and to be thought of as a member of the family… then one day, she disappeared, never to be seen again. BUT WAIT! Fast forward 4 years, and guess who showed up again, at the same animal lover’s home?! Cybele, where have you BEEN?!
Unfortunately, the home she returned to now has a dog that doesn’t care for kitties, so Cybele is now with the shelter, waiting for a new home (where she promises to stay forever… right, Cybele?!)
Cybele is about 11 years old now, and is a lovely tortoiseshell who looks like she has a bit of Manx in the mix, from those teeny little . . . → Read More: Give Cybele a home
