 . MISS M .
 . MISS M .
  • Domestic Long Hair
  • Spayed/Neutered
Hello, I'm MISS M, a regal, peaceful 10-year-old longhair gray kitty. My human passed away, and since the family couldn't keep me, I was brought to the shelter. I need a patient owner who will allow me plenty of time to adjust to a new home. I'm a quiet girl who doesn't ask for much, but a soft bed, some gentle companionship and a warm lap would be awfully nice. A GENEROUS DONOR WHO LOVES SENIOR KITTIES HAS PAID MY ADOPTION FEE!

 . MORGAN .
 . MORGAN .
  • Domestic Short Hair
  • Spayed/Neutered
6-year-old MORGAN is an elegant, yet reserved 6 year old brown and white tabby girl. She is still adjusting to shelter life and although she enjoys calm, gentle human attention, she will need time to adjust in a new home. Once she feels safe, this lovely girl will blossom and you will have a warm-hearted new companion kitty. MORGAN IS DECLAWED AND MUST BE INDOORS ONLY.

Hi, I'm CHEWY, a handsome, spunky 3 year old tabby. I'm a self-confidant, social kind of guy who is as sweet as sweet can be. I am quick to offer affection, and love receiving it in return. I'm a playful, active kitty-boy who will need consistent exercise and a buddy to play with. Why don't you come on down to the shelter and meet me, and see if we are a good fit. I'm sure ready for a new best friend-how about you?.

 . RICHIE .
  • Domestic Short Hair
  • Spayed/Neutered
RICHIE is a gorgeous gray-and-white eight-year-old boy who is silky-soft and wonderfully patterned. This awesome cat, who was returned for no fault of his own, is a super-friendly guy who loves petting, cuddling and shoulder time. He'll sit on your lap chatting with you if he likes the topic, or curl up next to you and go to sleep. Mainly he just wants to know you are there loving on him. Easy to do with this sweet guy!

 . KELLER .
 . KELLER .
  • Domestic Short Hair
  • Spayed/Neutered
KELLER here! I'm a one-year-old lean and sleek male tabby with stunningly beautiful stripes, and a great personality. Just for the record, I DON'T LIKE BEING PICKED UP, but I DO like chin scritches, petting and ear rubs. I'm a fastidious groomer, and an all-around good guy. I'm hoping to find a new home with humans who are looking for a companion cat who likes being with them, but is still fine doing his own thing. That's me!

 . NECKTIE .
 . NECKTIE .
  • Domestic Short Hair
  • Spayed/Neutered
Hello. My name is NECKTIE and I'm a brown and white 1-year-old tabby boy who is still on the shy side. Sometimes I reward quiet sweet-talk, and gentle scritches with soft cooing. And just so you know---I'm very fond of belly rubs. If you have a calm home where I can adjust slowly until I feel comfortable and safe, and if you are looking for a young companion cat who will be your friend for years to come, please consider me. I'm worth it!

 . KIT CAT .
 . KIT CAT .
  • Domestic Short Hair
  • Spayed/Neutered
My name is KIT CAT and I'm a rather spectacular looking 7-year-old buff colored boy. I'm a bit standoffish but now that I'm learning to trust people, things are looking brighter. I have a sweet heart, and I really like attention in the form of pats and scritches. But please watch my body language, because sometimes I get overwhelmed and just need time to myself. A patient, cat-savvy person who will give me time to settle into my new home and feel comfortable will find that I'm a delightful companion.

  • Domestic Long Hair
  • Spayed/Neutered
Hello, I'm OLIVER, a gentle 4 year old longhair gray tabby. BECAUSE I AM POSITIVE FOR FIV, I MUST BE INDOORS ONLY. Attached to my kennel, there is information on FIV. I like being brushed, which is a must if I am to look simply marvelous. Everyone says I am a total love because I purr and snuggle as soon as anyone comes near me. What can I say? I like anyone who treats me kindly. Please consider adopting me today. I will be a wonderful companion and fur-ever grateful.

 . TINY .
  • Domestic Medium Hair
  • Spayed/Neutered
My name is TINY, and although I was tiny once, now I'm just a normal size, 7-year-old boy with long gray and white tuxedo-style fur. I'm not crazy about other cats, but I certainly like attention from humans, and love exploring my surroundings. I like playing with a wand toy (a fella needs his exercise, after all), and I don't often turn down a welcoming lap. Won't you come meet me and see if I'm the kitty who will make your life complete?

I am very happy to meet and greet people who visit me at the shelter, and look forward to pets, scritches and maybe a game of chase the wand toy. I'm looking forward to a new home where I will be loved and appreciated for my deep thoughts and my affectionate personality.

 . TIGRESS .
  • Domestic Short Hair
  • Spayed/Neutered
TIGRESS is a lovely Calico with huge green eyes. This pretty 7 -year-old girl, is new at the shelter and very timid. She will need lots of TLC from a gentle person who will give her all the time she needs to feel safe.

 . BUDDY .
 . BUDDY .
  • Domestic Short Hair
  • Spayed/Neutered
I'm BUDDY, a handsome orange and white 8-year-old fella who was surrendered to the shelter because my family had to move. I like attention and treats, but since I can be feisty, a home with no young children, and people who understand my emotional needs will help me build my self-confidence. If my humans are willing to let me take my time getting used to my new digs, they will discover that I am a bright, friendly guy who is just waiting to blossom in a loving, secure home.

 . KATIE .
 . KATIE .
  • Domestic Short Hair
  • Spayed/Neutered
KATIE is brand new to the shelter and although this pretty gray tabby 6 year old is relaxed and friendly around people, right now she's trying to get used to a new environment in her own way by spending a lot of time sleeping. Katie came to the shelter as a stray so we don't know why one of her ears is crunched up, cauliflower-style-but it seems like it came from an old injury and doesn't appear to bother her. This gentle girl longs for her loving forever home. Will it be yours?
Adult, Female, Small

Adult, Female, Medium
 . PANTHER .
 . PANTHER .
  • Domestic Short Hair
  • Spayed/Neutered
PANTHER is one good-looking boy! He's a sleek black three-year-old cat whose body language needs to be watched since he sometimes forgets his manners and reaches out with his claws---just trying to live up to his name, perhaps. Panther will need a patient person and plenty of time to adjust in a new home, but he's a big sweetheart who, once used to his new environment might (or might not) want to sit in your lap, but will happily lounge by your side. You can tell from his photo that he's a great lounger!

 . BIG KITTY .
 . BIG KITTY .
  • Domestic Short Hair
  • Spayed/Neutered
BIG KITTY, a handsome 10-year-old tabby, lived a solitary, mainly outdoor life with a mom who recently went into assisted living. He is shut down, since he isn't used to strangers, but when we watch his body language, he enjoys pats (not on his back end, please) and soft talk. He is an appealing boy who needs a quiet child-free and pet-free home with someone who is patient, cat-savvy, and willing to give him plenty of time to adjust. He is a Fabulous Featured Feline who can be adopted for only $25.

  • Domestic Short Hair
  • Spayed/Neutered
SEBASTIAN here! I'm a 3-year-old handsome black boy who is brand new to adoption and still trying to figure out what's going on. I'm super timid right now and will need a quiet home with patient people who are cat-experienced and will give me all the time I need to adjust. I am easily overwhelmed, but once I know that I'm safe and you are there for me, I will start to enjoy life again. I might not sit on your lap---but please save me some room by your side!

 . NOAH .
 . NOAH .
  • Domestic Short Hair
  • Spayed/Neutered
NOAH is a gentle, friendly, 5-year-old lovebug. He had gone through some hard times, and spent his first two weeks in adoption sleeping, but is now rediscovering what fun it is to be a cat and has become Mr. Personality. We thought he might have a little arthritis, but if he does, it doesn't show! He actively explores the cat room, gets along with other cats, and rewards the love we give him, with deep, appreciative purrs. Making room in your home and heart for our Noah, might be the best thing you ever do for yourself.

HI, I'm BELLA, a shy yet lovely 2 year old brown tabby and Tortie girl. I need a patient owner who is experienced with fearful cats and will allow me time to adjust to my new home, not forcing me into new and potentially overwhelming situations. I may not want to be on your lap, but I will do great just being by your side. While eating, I make nummy noises, a humming/growling while I chew. Don't be frightened it is just who I am. If you have a loving quiet home and a gentle soul, please come adopt me today. In time, I will blossom into your new best friend.

  • Domestic Long Hair
  • Spayed/Neutered
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. I would prefer to be inside, lounging on my own comfy bed, on your favorite rocking chair, or by your side. I accept gentle pets and am looking for a patient owner who has experience with cats like me and can provide me with a quiet and loving fur-ever home. If I sound like just the kitty you have been longing for, please come adopt me today. JULIE HAS HAD HER ADOPTION FEE PAID BY OUR FRIEND SID.

MILEY is such a pretty gray girl! She is two years old and came to the shelter as a stray, so is taking her time getting comfortable in her new environment. When she receives quiet, gentle affection, this reserved lady cat begins to purr loudly---a sound which is not unlike the cooing of a dove. Beautiful and unusual. Give her a safe room and plenty of time to adjust, and Miley might be your new best friend.

Hi, I?m VAN GOGH, a personable 1-½ year old orange tabby. I looked a little scruffy when I first arrived at the shelter, but with all this attention, I am a changed boy!

Any chance you would like to give two of us a home? You can have two funny, fabulous kitty friends for one low price. Such a deal!
