 . COLETTE .
 . COLETTE .
  • Snowshoe
  • Spayed/Neutered
Our regal sophisticated COLETTE waits patiently on her throne for her subjects to come by and give her gentle pets. Perhaps, one will even take her home to a kingdom of her own, helping her slim down to a healthier weight. This 4 year old large Snowshoe Siamese mix does not like to be picked up. She loves all the pets and scritches she can get, however, and will yowl for more, giving you an opportunity to smile at her scratchy, insistent voice. COLETTE is not particularly happy with other cats so it might be best if she is the only pet in her home. If COLETTE sounds like your new companion, please come adopt her today. She will be fur-ever grateful. type=3andtheater>

 . ROSA .
  • Domestic Medium Hair
  • Spayed/Neutered
Hi, I'm ROSA, a medium-sized fluffy gray/brown tabby girl with soft, pet-able fur. I'm just 2 years old, and am still a little shy. If you see me hunkering behind my bed just give me a minute to feel safe, then offer me some pets and scritches along the corner of my jaw. That is a quick way to win my heart. I didn't like the cat in my other home, and would prefer not to live with other cats. I DID get along great with the dog however, and I do fine with respectful children as long as they give me a few minutes to get used to them. Please come meet me and see if we are a good fit. I will need slow introductions in my new home.

 . LUCKY .
 . LUCKY .
  • Domestic Long Hair
  • Spayed/Neutered
I am LUCKY-and you're going to be lucky too, if you decide to make me part of your family. Just saying! I'm an exceptionally handsome big longhair fellow, with a black smoke coat of many colors. I'm 3 years old and am an interesting conversationalist, so feel free to stop by for a chat. I'm also a world-class snoozer, but even when asleep I can feel it when people work their fingers into my thick fur to give me neck scritches, and I immediately start purring. Since I'm still a young cat I need exercise and someone to play with. Are you the lucky person who's going to be my new best friend?

 . CLOUD .
 . CLOUD .
  • Domestic Short Hair
  • Spayed/Neutered
I am CLOUD (on the right) and this is my brother SHADOW. We are 5-year-old, gentle giant BEST BUDDIES who have always lived together, and love each other very much. We know that our aging mom could no longer care for us and hoped that the shelter would find a good home for her boys; however we are still a little confused and stressed about being here. At least people recognize that we are shy, and they are giving us lots of gentle scritches and letting us know that they will help us find a calm new home together. We are nearly identical boys with short gray fur and white socks, muzzles, and bellies (did I mention large bellies?) I am less timid than Shadow (who tends to bury his face in my fur when he's scared), but we both enjoy loving attention and we purr to show our pleasure when people are kind to us. Please help us find a quiet home together. We haven't spent time with children, dogs or other cats-but we love being with our people, we are friendly to visitors, and once we feel safe, we are playful, and affectionate. We even give kisses to deserving friends and family! CLOUD AND SHADOW ARE A BONDED PAIR WHO MUST BE ADOPTED TOGETHER.

 . SUZY .
 . SUZY .
  • Domestic Short Hair
  • Spayed/Neutered
Hello there. My name is SUZY, I'm 6 years old and I'm a plus-sized creamsicle glamour puss! At 20 pounds there's a lot of me for you to love, but I will be happier and healthier when I lose a few pounds, so I am on a weight-reduction diet with a special food to help me reach and maintain a healthy weight. My person, who passed away recently, wasn't able to give me the exercise I really need, so I look forward in my new home to having time to play and run around. If you spend any time at all with me, you'll discover that I also have a big heart! I'm gentle, loving, and personable. I like it when people chat with me, and I certainly enjoy being brushed! If you're looking for a delightful new friend, I'm your girl.

 . VICTOR .
 . VICTOR .
  • Domestic Medium Hair
  • Spayed/Neutered
VICTOR is a big, orange and white 9-year-tabby. The person he had spent his whole life with moved into assisted living and couldn't take him with her so initially he had a tough time at the shelter. Once he was feeling better about the world, he was adopted---but didn't get along with the dog in his new home, so was returned to the shelter. Please give Victor a dog-less home! He is a personable boy who likes exploring, likes being with people and appreciates attention in the form of pets and scritches. He is great with the other cats in Whiskerville, but anytime a kitty goes to a new home, he should be given time to adjust in a safe room before he is introduced slowly to the resident cat. Sometimes Victor gets nervous with too much attention and can get nippy, so please watch his body language. Over the years he has put on some extra pounds. Since we want him to be healthy and happy our gentle giant needs to be on a weight reduction diet. If you have a quiet home that could use a big orange tabby boy, please come meet Victor! His adoption fee has been prepaid by a generous donor as part of our HOMEWARD BOUND program.

 . WHISKERS .
  • Domestic Short Hair
  • Spayed/Neutered
Hi there! I'm WHISKERS, a one-year-old tuxedo girl who has both the beauty and the personality to add charm and lots of fun to your home. I came to the shelter as a stray and since I'm brand new here, everyone is still getting to know me, however, they have already discovered that I'm quite the charmer. My black mask is permanently affixed, as is my desire to be the fun, friendly companion you've been looking for!

 . NALA .
 . NALA .
  • Domestic Short Hair
  • Spayed/Neutered
I'm NALA, a purr-fectly lovely gray kitty girl with splashes of white in all the most interesting places. I'm two and a half years old, and was returned to the shelter because I wasn't a good fit in my adopted home and didn't get along with the resident dog. Sometimes I hide, however as long as people give me time to adjust to new situations, talk to me softly, and woo me with head and neck scritches, I visibly relax and rub against them, enjoying companionship. I also get along great with the other kitties in Whiskerville and can often be found snuggling with GOOSE or JOY. It's nice for compatible kitties to be adopted together so won't you come visit the shelter and see if a couple of delightful kitties are in the stars for you? You can adopt two of us for one low adoption fee.

DARIA! If you're looking for a soft, dark-ish 3-year-old Tortie, look no further. I'm your girl! I'm 3 years old and was brought here as a stray by some nice people who just knew the shelter would be able to match me with my perfect forever people. I'm a gentle, personable lady who enjoys attention and offers head butts in return for those lovely neck scritches. I am longing for a home of my own where I will feel safe and cared for. My bags are packed!

  • Domestic Short Hair

Petite one-year-old PHANTOM is adorable! This sweet, soft girl is all black with yellow eyes that look right at you and say, Please be my friend! She was a little bit timid when she first arrived at the shelter, but now comes forward in her kennel asking for pets, scritches and any love you want to give her. What a cutie-and what a fun companion she will be for some lucky family.

 . 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. I'm a fabulous featured feline and my adoption fee is only $25. type=3andtheater>

 . GOOSE .
 . GOOSE .
  • Domestic Short Hair
  • Spayed/Neutered
Im GOOSE, a confident, extremely handsome (check out these whiskers!), 2-year-old, ginger boy looking for a family to love. Im a large, gregarious boy who loves to play, snuggle and hang out with my people. My former owners worked long hours, so this wasnt possible for them. I have some GI issues that are being addressed at the shelter, and my simple, special diet will need to be continued in my next home. I am a friendly, personable boy who loves a good brushing, a fast game of laser light, and a good under-the covers cuddle. Are you my new best friend?

 . CAGE .
 . CAGE .
  • Domestic Short Hair
  • Spayed/Neutered
CAGE, who came to us as a stray is taking awhile to feel comfortable at the shelter. This 14-week-old brown tabby boy is especially cute, but is still quite anxious, so it is necessary to go slowly with him and watch his body language. He is starting to warm up, likes gentle petting around his head, and as part of his socialization he lets volunteers carry him around the room. Right now little Cage needs continued work to help him relax and know that he is safe. Another kitten companion might help with this as well as humans who are sensitive to a scared little kitten and are willing to give him all the time he needs in order to feel safe in a calm new home. YOU CAN MEET CAGE AT PETSMART IN MEDFORD.

Please Come Visit Me at PetSmart in Medford! Hi, I am TED, an adorable 3 month old tuxedo kitty. My siblings - JEAN, JOE, and ROB - and I came in from foster care and are ready to find our fur-ever home. We heard it is a kitten's job to play almost non-stop. We occasionally stop playing long enough to eat and of course, take wonderful piled-on-top-of-each-other naps once we are worn out. Kittens really love having the companionship of another kitten. So, why not take advantage of the 2 fur 1 adoption special and take me home with one of my siblings - JEAN, JOE, or ROB. You will double the joy to your own life, all for one low adoption fee. Your house is not a home until you have kittens entertaining you with their zoomies.

Hi, I'm JOY, an affectionate 4 year old kitty. I was adopted a few months back, but I had to be returned because of allergies in the family. I am now in search of a new home where my family will allow me the time it takes to settle into my new environment. I will show you a quiet kind of JOY when you treat me with respect, which is why my name fits me so purr-fectly. I am truly a JOY to be around. I am mellow, friendly and do not demand a lot. I am confident my new people will come along soon, giving me a home filled with loving kindness. If you need a little JOY in your life, please come adopt me today.

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!

  • Siamese
  • Spayed/Neutered
Hi, I am JINGA, a very handsome 1 year old male Seal Point Siamese kitty. Because of housing restrictions, my mom could no longer keep me and had to bring me to the shelter to find a new home. At first, I may seem reserved, but once I get to know you, I appreciate some head rubs and sweet talk. I am a loving, smart and playful kitty. I have been around other cats and dogs, and did well. I have not been around children. Before my mom found me, I was homeless and abused. Needless to say, I LOVE being an indoor kitty and hope my new home will allow me to stay inside where I will be the happiest. If you have a place in your heart and home for a kitty like me, please come adopt me. I would love to find my happiness again.

Hi, I am MAGGIE, a beautiful 2-year-old somewhat Bengal-ish looking brown tabby with swirls of chocolate, orange, and cream. I was adopted from the shelter as a kitten, but recently returned because I had a complicated relationship with the resident cat. I peacefully coexisted with the dogs in my home. If children are respectful and do not try to hold me, I am usually okay with them. Actually I don't like anyone picking me up and holding me, but do enjoy sitting with my people. I need a patient loving person who has a quiet, calm home where I can take the time I need to rebuild my confidence. If that sounds like you, please come adopt me today. I would love to find my happiness again.

My name is PIPPI, I'm a lovely gray and white 2-year-old mama kitty who recently had three beautiful babies. I was a wonderful, protective mother to them and got them off to a good start in life. Now it is my turn to be the center of attention and find a loving new home. I'm a confident, affectionate kitty who is curious, likes attention from my human friends, and is very playful. There were other animals in my home, but I was so protective of my kittens that I didn't spend any time with them. Won't you come meet me and see if I am just the kitty girl you've been hoping to find?

  • Domestic Short Hair

Hi, I am CHASE, a good-looking 2-year-old brown tabby boy. My previous owner brought me to the shelter to find a new home because there were too many animals for the size of the house. At first, I can be wary of strangers and get agitated with unfamiliar noises. Once I get to know you, though, I am a lovely, personable boy who might just be a lap cat eventually. I also love to play. Since I have always been an indoor-only kitty, this must be the case in my new home. If you have experience with cats like me and are willing to allow me the time to get adjusted to my new life in your calm loving home, please come adopt me today. I would really love to find my happiness again.
