 . SPICE .
 . SPICE .
  • Domestic Short Hair
  • Spayed/Neutered
SPICE is my name, although SUGAR would have suited me as well since I am definitely everything nice. I had lived with the same family for my whole 12 years, did well with young children, and was a friendly great companion. Unfortunately, I have indulged a bit too freely in fine foods, and kind of skipped the exercise/play part that kitties need to stay fit and healthy. I did hear a volunteer say that my form of exercise is purring-and admittedly, I have one of the better and most frequent purrs you've probably every heard-however my beautiful Calico fluffiness apparently requires a slightly more strenuous form of exercise, as well as attention to diet. I need to be in a home where my people will engage with me to help me shed some weight. I'm a talkative girl with a raspy voice, and am easy to love. I heard another volunteer say that she'd like to put me in her bag and take me home because I'm so friendly and sweet-only her bag was too small. My adoption fee has been prepaid by a generous donor as part of our HOMEWARD BOUND program. I am currently living in a loving foster home. If you'd like to know more about me please contact my foster mom Angela at 541 482-6577 type=3andtheater>

  • Domestic Short Hair
  • Spayed/Neutered
Hi, I am SYLVESTER, a handsome, personable 3 year old tuxedo boy. Because I am FIV positive (feline immunodeficiency virus), I must be indoors only. I like to explore, I like to chill out, and I love cuddling with my people. You may even see me gently make biscuits. I am obviously a purr-fect companion! If you have a place in your home and heart for a kitty like me, please adopt me today. I am currently living in a loving foster home. If you'd like to know more about me please contact my foster mom Nancy at 541 488-7076

 . FEATHER .
 . FEATHER .
  • Domestic Short Hair
  • Spayed/Neutered
Hello! My name is FEATHER, and I'm a shy 7-year-old girl who is looking for a quiet home. My former home was loving, but the noise and confusion made me anxious, and I spent a lot of time hiding. I long for a CALM HOME WITH NO CHILDREN and would be happiest as the only pet. My previous family found me more comfortable with women but I LOVE my foster dad! I like the idea of a family who enjoys quiet activities like sitting and reading, while cuddling an affectionate kitty (me!) on their lap. I'm afraid of being outside, so please give me an in INDOOR-ONLY home! I might be timid, but I blossom when someone offers me gentle love. I am currently living in a loving foster home. If you'd like to know more about me please contact my foster mom Bonnie at 541 482-6582

 . EMMA .
  • Domestic Medium Hair
  • Spayed/Neutered
Hello. My name is EMMA and I'm a young-looking 15-year-old tabby who has lived in the same home, as an indoor-only kitty for my whole life. Now my person is too ill to take care of me so I'm looking for a new home. I'm a little stressed, so please watch my body language. Once I feel comfortable I like being with my person AND I'm fine doing my own thing. I will thrive in a quiet home where I can sit in the sun on a cat tree watching the birds. Are you ready to be the bird-watching companion of a lovely senior lady cat? I am currently living in a loving foster home. If you'd like to know more about me please contact my foster mom Candace at 510 697-7884 HOMEWARD BOUND---ADOPTION FEE PREPAID

 . GRACIE .
 . GRACIE .
  • Domestic Short Hair
  • Spayed/Neutered
GRACIE is a pretty 1-year-old brown and white tabby kitty. She is new to the shelter and so far, she is a quiet girl who watches from her upper kennel, everything that goes on in the cat room. She's a silent observer-a shy little lass who is also a bit of a coquette, just waiting for someone to come by and flirt with her. She does love gentle attention. If you'd like to know more about me please contact my foster mom Bridey at 503 502-9053

 . CLARK .
 . CLARK .
  • Domestic Short Hair
  • Spayed/Neutered
Hi, I am CLARK, a 2-year-old, a stellar gray kitty-boy. I can be funny at times then act terrified and hide under my cat bed. Other times, I am Mr. Purrsonality who, after a quiet conversation and a few ear scritches, will come to the front of the kennel and roll around asking for whole-body hugs and pets. The world is a bit confusing to me, and you might have to watch my body language, but If you have a place in your heart and home for a cutie like me and have the patience to allow me the time it will take to settle in and rebuild my confidence, I know we'll be happy together

 . CLEO .
 . CLEO .
  • Domestic Short Hair
  • Spayed/Neutered
Hello there. I am CLEO, a quiet, reflective 11-year-old girl who likes to cuddle and sit on any available lap. A lap can offer a good vantage point for observing what's going on in the world, don't you agree? Don't let my age scare you away. Cats can live to be in their 20's so we still have plenty of happy years together. Come meet me and see if we click. My bags are packed! I'm in a foster home so, if you'd like to meet me, please call my foster mom Brandy at 541-500-7546 to arrange a meeting. HOMEWARD BOUND-ADOPTION FEE PREPAID

 . CALLISTA .
 . CALLISTA .
  • Domestic Short Hair
  • Spayed/Neutered
HOMEWARD BOUND - ADOPTION FEE PREPAID! Hi, I am CALLISTA, a beautifully marked 10-year-old pastel Tortie. Although I was part of my previous owner's life for the last eight years, my person can no longer care for me so I must find a new home. Needless to say, my life has been turned upside down. I am very shy and uncertain. In my previous home, there were no other pets, no children, and I lived indoors only. I am described as an affectionate girl who was friendly to her people, liked laps, played gently, but was shy with visitors. I would do best in a calm, loving indoor home where I can take the time it takes to settle in. If you have a place in your heart and home for a kitty like me, please come adopt me today. I AM CURRENTLY LIVING IN A LOVING FOSTER HOME. If you would like to know more about me please contact my mom Jennifer at 541-840-3456 type=3andtheater>

 . MAGIC .
 . MAGIC .
  • Domestic Short Hair
  • Spayed/Neutered
My name is MAGIC, and I'm an impressive, beautiful, 20 pound lady! I'm only two years old and am great with cats, dogs and respectful kids! I eagerly roll over for pets (in fact, that and hauling on my cat scratcher, which I LOVE are my favorite forms of exercise.) I also like exploring my surroundings, and I overheard someone mention that a home with stairs I could run up and down might be a good idea. I'd prefer an elevator or escalator, but I understand that in order to be fit and healthy I should probably lose a little weight. You can talk to the shelter folks about what kitty diet food they recommend. In the meantime, I'll just roll over on my back and ask for some more pets. Any takers? I'M CURRENTLY LIVING IN A LOVING FOSTER HOME . If you'd like to learn more about me please contact my foster mom Jody at 541-621-5595.

 . KELLY .
 . KELLY .
  • Domestic Short Hair
  • Spayed/Neutered
My name is KELLY and I'm a beautiful petite 2 year old girl who is a total lap cat! I'm not a big fan of dogs but my foster mom thinks that with proper slow introductions, I could warm up to them. Sometimes I'm a little unsure at first about other kitties, but if your warm inviting lap is available, I'm pretty much oblivious to the rest of the world. I came to the shelter as a stray, so I'm making up for lost time by giving all of my attention to my foster mom right now. I'm a vocal girl who loves pets and will reward any loving you give me with my loud rumbly purr. In fact, I heard my foster mom say that she could hear my purr clear across the room. How about that! If you'd like to learn more about me PLEASE CONTACT MY FOSTER MOM JODY AT 541-621-5595.

 . BLAZE .
 . BLAZE .
  • Domestic Short Hair
BLAZE is a special kitty who needs a special home. This beautifully marked 6-year-old tabby lady has had a tough life. Susan, a kind woman who found her hanging out in an Ashland neighborhood surmised that she had been dumped there. She was terribly thin with burns on her face and tail, a wrinkly ear and an eye spot on her right eye. The vet thought the burns were recent but the eye spot and wrinkly ear were old injuries. Susan took her in and cared for her for a few weeks before bringing her to the shelter where we found a foster home where she could continue to heal. Blaze is an independent girl who needs a home where she can rule the roost-a home without dogs, other cats or small children. In spite of whatever happened to her in the past, she loves to snuggle on your lap, next to you in bed at night and next to you on a chair. She loves to run around the house, up and down the stairs, and has an especially cute meowy way of talking. Sometimes Blaze just needs to be left alone, so it is important to watch her body language. If she whips her tail around that's a good time to exit in order to avoid a nip. This cat, who has survived so much, deserves a new home with a patient person who will give her all the time she needs to know that she is safe. She's had a few angels in her life lately. Will you be the angel who gives her a loving forever home? BLAZE is still living in her foster home. If you'd like to know more about her you can TEXT her mom, Mariana at (541) 890-7889. Her adoption fee has been prepaid by Susan, the woman who rescued her.
