 . JESTER .
  • Domestic Long Hair
  • Spayed/Neutered
Hello, my name is JESTER and I'm a 3-year-old gray and white longhaired boy. I've had a lot of scary changes in my life and it has taken me a while to feel comfortable with people, but now, thanks to my new Kitty Korner pal, 1-year-old THOR, I am much more relaxed, and purr contentedly while receiving gentle pets, scritches and sweet talk. Thor was also painfully shy and fearful before we met, but now he greets people, and loves attention. Together we are transforming into social butterflies! THOR AND I REALLY WANT TO BE ADOPTED TOGETHER. In a calm, indoor-only home without small children or energetic pets, Thor and I will continue to blossom. We are looking for our forever family. Could that be you? My adoption fee has been prepaid by a generous donor.

 . JADE .
  • Domestic Short Hair
  • Spayed/Neutered
JADE is a soft black eleven-year-old girl who is looking for a calm indoor-only home without other animals or small children. She has always been a bit of a solitary kitty, although in a quiet environment where she feels safe, she relaxes and her more confident side emerges. Although she prefers not to be picked up and carried around, in her foster home she snuggles up with the 18-year-old son and sleeps with him almost every night. Jade is not shy about letting you know what she's thinking---especially when her inner clock says it's time to eat. Then she becomes quite the chatty Cathy. This pretty girl has had some setbacks in her life and now, having had a chance to feel more secure in her foster home, is hoping to find her forever home with people who will love her unconditionally for the sweet girl she is. If you'd like to learn more about Jade, please contact her foster mom Jill at 541-890-6709. Jade's adoption fee has been prepaid by a generous donor. Jade was Cat of the Week in the Mail Tribune on Sunday, May 3.

 . THOR .
  • Domestic Short Hair
  • Spayed/Neutered
Hi there. I am THOR, a loving 1 year old male black kitty who arrived at the shelter after my mom passed away. I was pretty shy and fearful until I moved into Kitty Korner and made friends with JESTER, another timid boy with a difficult past. Jester and I quickly became great pals, and in learning to feel comfortable with each other, we have both become much more outgoing and relaxed with people. In fact, we are transforming into social butterflies! Now I like playing with a wand toy, come forward for scritches and head rubs, and purr happily while I tell you about my day. Jester is content to sit there purring and watching me while his human friends pat him and give him loves. JESTER AND I REALLY WANT TO FIND A NEW CALM HOME TOGETHER! We have come a long way in our short lives, and look forward to spending the rest of our days together as indoor kitties in a peaceful home without small children or energetic pets. We are looking for our forever family. Could that be you? You can adopt both of us for one low fee.

 . BOOGIE .
 . BOOGIE .
  • Domestic Medium Hair
  • Spayed/Neutered
Meet BOOGIE, a lovely but shy 6-year-old female kitty. She was recently returned to the shelter because she wasn't a good fit with her family. She has had so many changes in her life and although she was understandably very timid when she was first returned to the shelter, she is finally starting to come out of her shell and spend time with volunteers and other kitties. She comes down from her favorite sunny post in Kitty Korner for scritches, pets and sweet talk, and daily gains more self-confidence. Boogie would like a calm quiet home where she can continue to enjoy sunny window ledges, and loving, gentle people. She may not be a good fit for a home with young children and energetic dogs, but has done well with her Kitty Korner feline companions. If she sounds like just the kitty you've been looking for, please come adopt BOOGIE! She would really like to find her happiness again. BOOGIE'S ADOPTION FEE HAS BEEN PREPAID BY A GENEROUS DONOR. type=3andtheater>

 . BLAZE .
 . BLAZE .
  • Domestic Short Hair
  • Spayed/Neutered
Hi. I'm BLAZE, an 8-month-old, super personable brown tabby boy who was surrendered because my people could no longer care for me. I haven't lived with children, but my former home had dogs and cats and I enjoyed playing with them and sleeping near them. I generally love people (although right now, while I'm getting used to the shelter, I don't like a lot of handling). I have always lived indoors where I've played enthusiastically with feather toys, and been sweet as pie to my people. If you are looking for an affectionate new kitty companion, I'm looking for a safe, happy forever home. Are we a good match? type=3andtheater>
