 . BRANSON .
 . BRANSON .
  • Domestic Short Hair
  • Spayed/Neutered
Hello, I'm BRANSON. I'm a three-year-old boy who was a stray when I was brought to the shelter. I was SO scared and jumpy. Happily for me, a few FOTAS volunteers spent lots of quality time with me, showing me it was okay to trust again. I'm still a bit timid, and will need a patient owner who will give me plenty of time to adjust in a quiet, calm home; in the meantime though, I'm finding lots to feel good about and I show my gratitude with the best head butts ever. Looking for a BFF? Here I am!
Adult, Male, Small

  • Domestic Short Hair
  • Spayed/Neutered
CLEOPATRA is a tiny yet self-confident 5 month old tuxedo kitty. She makes up for her small stature with her huge purr.

  • Domestic Short Hair

I'm CADBURY, a 1-year-old mama cat who recently had 6 kittens that look just like me. Beautiful! I was a good mom, but now it's my turn to soak up attention. If you love head-butts while doing the dishes, or just hanging out on the couch then I'm your gal. I'm fine doing my own thing when you aren't around, but I'll be right there to greet you when you return!

 . ANNIE .
 . ANNIE .
  • Domestic Long Hair
  • Spayed/Neutered
ANNIE is a year-old, full-of-energy gray kitty who is practicing in her kennel to become a world cup soccer phenomenon. She's bright and beautiful and a lot of fun; however she should be in a home with patient cat-savvy people, and older children only, who are willing to take their time teaching her that fingers, unlike balls, aren't toys . No finger nibbling allowed!
Young, Female, Small
 . SMOKE .
 . SMOKE .
  • Domestic Medium Hair
  • Spayed/Neutered
5-year-old SMOKE comes by his name naturally. He's a handsome, quiet, grey boy who is still a little shy, but friendly and eager to please. He curls up snoozing comfortably in his bed until someone stops by to give him scritches and loves. In the Alex Shepherd room, he explored, seeming happy to be out and about, but was even happier spending time on a volunteer's lap, or snuggling next to her. Give Smoke plenty of time to adjust in his new home, and watch how quickly he blossoms.

 . FIFI .
 . FIFI .
  • Domestic Short Hair
  • Spayed/Neutered
My name is FIFI, I'm 7-years-old, and am at the shelter because my favorite person just passed away. I've been a mainly indoor-kitty who likes looking out the window, snuggling with my people, and drinking water out of the sink faucet. I love getting pets, but please be careful of my tail. It was hurt in an accident a long time ago and I am protective of it. I'm afraid of little kids, am okay with older, slower dogs, and would rather be the only cat in the home. Are you my forever people? Please say yes!

 . NATHAN .
  • Domestic Short Hair
  • Spayed/Neutered
Dudes! NATHAN here! If you're looking for a good time, I'm your guy. I'm just 10 months old and heard someone describing me as a beautifully marked brown tabby ball of pure energy. Yep! They got that right. I LOVE to play with you, but am good at entertaining myself, too. I sometimes forget that fingers aren't toys, so a home without young children would be best. If you have an active home, and would like a new playmate (who also happens to be a cuddler once I'm worn out) please adopt ME!

She loves petting, and when you spend time chatting quietly with her and giving her gentle scritches , her rumbly purr can be heard across the room.

 . SAGE .
  • Domestic Short Hair
  • Spayed/Neutered
Hello, my name is SAGE, and I'm a two-year-old gray tabby girl who is currently playing Find the Kitty. That's because I'm new to the shelter, am still painfully shy and tend to hide under my bed. That doesn't mean that I don't still enjoy gentle pets, scritches in all the right places, and quiet sweet talk. Please help me overcome my shyness by giving me a calm home with people who understand that sometimes a little girl needs extra time to adjust and gain her self-confidence, before becoming your best friend.

 . ZOOLANDER .
 . ZOOLANDER .
  • Domestic Long Hair
  • Spayed/Neutered
To say that tiny, elfin-like ZOOLANDER is beautiful, is an understatement. This engaging little gray and white, 1-year-old longhair boy is timid at first, but once he knows you are his friend, and are going to give him some love and attention, he's all yours. Once wide-eyed Zoolander has had time to adjust to a new home, he will be just the playful, cuddly kitty with whom you were hoping to begin a new year .

  • Domestic Long Hair
  • Spayed/Neutered

  • Domestic Short Hair
  • Spayed/Neutered
CHATTY is a one-year-old brown tabby girl who is looking for someone to whom she can tell all her stories. This little darlin' isn't always talkative. She can also be quiet and reflective, hoping that someone shows up to give her some head pats and chin scratches. She's also a good listener, which makes her an all-around fabulous companion. Chatty would like a home with a safe room where she can hang out until she's used to her new family and environment. Are you looking for a BFF? Won't you consider our Chatty?

 . PEACH .
 . PEACH .
  • Domestic Short Hair
  • Spayed/Neutered
My name is PEACH, and I'm a one year old girl who had been living on the streets as a stray, and was understandably timid when I first arrived at the shelter. I had a home once, (which you can tell by the collar around my neck), and now that I'm feeling more relaxed and self-confidant, I hope to find a loving new home soon. I'm a curious girl with a streak of independence, but I like chatting with you and sitting by your side. I am going to be a great companion kitty for some lucky person.

She explores the room cautiously, ever alert, but still curious. She is young enough to be playful and old enough to be wise. She'd love to have a new home of her own to explore, and a family who would love her gentle disposition and her beautiful big cat look in a little kitty body.
Young, Female, Small
 . SALLY .
 . SALLY .
  • Domestic Short Hair
  • Spayed/Neutered
SALLY is a gray four-year-old girl with lovely markings and big soulful eyes. She's a bit reclusive until a friendly volunteer approaches her singing Lay down Sally, and rest you in my arms, Don't you think you want someone to talk to?(Apologies, Eric C.) Then she stretches out to her full gray tabby length and purrs contentedly. Don't think that means that she wants her tummy rubbed, however. She doesn't! Sally would love to have a new home with gentle people who give her lots of time to adjust, and who realize what a gem they have in her.

Hello, I'm JULIE, an appealing 6-year-old longhair black and white kitty. I was loved at one time, but recently, I was found wandering the streets.

 . MISSY .
 . MISSY .
  • Domestic Long Hair
  • Spayed/Neutered
Hi, I'm MISSY, a 6 year old long hair lynx point tabby with utterly unique facial features. I was surrendered to the shelter because my owner passed away. I am currently in foster care where I am on a special diet and receiving medication twice a day for hyperthyroidism. Because I am declawed in the front, I have to be an indoor only kitty. My new home needs to be peaceful and loving with no children or other pets. I do not like being held or picked up and I do not react well to being surprised. After all, I am a sensitive soul. If I sound like your cup of tea, please contact the Jackson County Animal Shelter to find out how you can visit me in my foster home. I may have special needs, but that doesn't mean we can't be best friends for life.
