I'm Potter, and I'm 3 years of age. I was left at the shelter because of a new baby in the home, so I would prefer a home with no small children. I have some hair loss that is due to stress (should get better once adjusted), give me some time to warm up and we will be the best of friends.

 . VICTOR .
  • Domestic Medium Hair
  • Spayed/Neutered
Hi. My name is VICTOR, I'm 9 years old and am at the shelter because the person I have spent my whole life with just had to move into assisted living and couldn't take me with her. I'm sad of course, and a little confused; but the people here are very kind to me and seem to understand that I might need some time to feel happy again. In the meantime they brush me a lot, which feels great, they sit with me, rub my head, and assure me quietly that I'm a good boy who will find another home soon. I have gained a little extra weight over the years, so am now on a weight-reduction diet. Please come visit me, sit with me and see if a big, gentle orange tabby boy is in your future. If so, I'm ready to find my new happiness.

 . HARRY .
 . HARRY .
  • Domestic Long Hair, Ragdoll
  • Spayed/Neutered
BEST BUDDIES - ADOPTION FEE HAS BEEN PREPAID-NEED TO BE ADOPTED TOGETHER HARRY, a white with grayish flame point coloring and his bonded sister SALLY, a Calico Point/pale orange and white girl are both 4 years old. They were adopted a few months ago, but things did not go according to plan, so they were returned to find a better home. With their new people it is essential for HARRY and SALLY to have a safe room in a quiet, indoor-only home where they can take all the time they need to feel safe in their new environment. They are shy kitties (especially Sally) who have gone through a lot, so for awhile their safe room will probably be home. As they get used to knowing where their 2 litter boxes are, their bed, food and fresh water, they will be able to adjust slowly, build up their confidence and when they are ready, become regular treasured family members who have the whole house to call home. With patient people, these beautiful, gentle kitties will become wonderful companions. If you have experience with kitties like HARRY and SALLY, please come visit them today. Spend some time with a cat adoption counselor to see if you and your home will be a good fit for these lovely cats.

 . ORION .
  • Domestic Short Hair
  • Spayed/Neutered
Hi, I am ORION, a big, good-looking 2-year-old ginger boy. I am confident and friendly. I was brought to the shelter after having been found abandoned in a campground. I can be quite dominant around other cats and don't get along with dogs, so it would be best if I was the only pet in the home. I am affectionate, playful and protective of my people. They say I am a great lap cat. If you have a place in your heart and home for a kitty like me, please come adopt me today.

  • Domestic Short Hair

Hi, I am ELLIE, a beautiful yet reserved 2 year old black kitty. I need a patient family who understands what it takes to make me feel safe in my new home; loving kindness goes a long way. I like to play with wand toys. So, maybe, we can start there and work slowly into a long lasting relationship. If that sounds good to you, please come adopt me today. I sure would love to be in my new home for Christmas. **I'm a Home for the Holidays kitty**

 . MAGGIE .
 . MAGGIE .
  • Domestic Short Hair
  • Spayed/Neutered
MAGGIE! This gorgeous, big-eyed 18 month old girl is fun to watch, and is one of the most interesting cats we've had. She has a cute little half-size tail and she's wild with a laser-light or peacock feather. She's a girl with a sense of humor and a mind of her own who would like to rule over her kingdom with no interference from other cats. Small children might not be appropriate for Maggie since she can get feisty when she's playing. Although she is not a cuddler, she's happy to sit next to us on the bench keeping us company, and enjoys being brushed. We feel that Maggie needs just the right person-a patient one who isn't afraid of a bit of spice, knows how to watch kitty body language and will give her all the time she needs to feel comfortable in a new home. She's a character who is well-loved by volunteers. Over the past months, MAGGIE has seen many kitties find their homes. She feels sad because she is still waiting for her fur-ever home. Won't you give her chance and take her home today? MAGGIE'S ADOPTION FEE HAS BEEN PEPAID BY A GENEROUS DONOR.
