I'm Ursula, a beautiful queen who is about 6 years old. I'm very affectionate and enjoy being brushed gently. I'm slightly overweight and would benefit from a diet, but can you really blame the humans for showering such a sweetie with extra treats and food?

 . PATCHES .
  • Domestic Short Hair
  • Spayed/Neutered
Hi, I am PATCHES, a beautiful 10 year old Calico girl with lovely soft coloring. I adore being petted and will roll over for belly-rubs. I enjoy being brushed, which makes my already soft fur even softer. I dream of a home that will match my quiet energy and offer lots of lap time. Oh how I love laps! Because of my age, I should be an indoor only kitty. A home with older children is best because I do get a bit anxious around wiggly younger children. If I sound like your cup of tea, please come adopt me today. You won't regret it, and I will be fur-ever grateful! I AM A FABULOUS FEATURED FELINE AND MY ADOPTION FEE IS ONLY $25!

 . BRUISER .
 . BRUISER .
  • Domestic Short Hair
  • Spayed/Neutered
BRUISER, EDDIE and ROMEO are 13-week-old brothers who are some of the cutest little classic Tuxedos you've ever seen. All three of them have a minor neurological issue that makes them a little wobbly when they walk or play. No one has ever told THEM that they are different however, and their zest for living knows no bounds. Their love for life includes cuddling with people and with each other, playing nonstop, purring, climbing, jumping on and over each other, and wearing themselves out until they end up in an exhausted heap-sound asleep. These little boys act like every silly, snuggly kitten you've ever known; but because they are a little unsteady at times they need to be INDOORS ONLY.

 . IZZY .
  • Domestic Short Hair
  • Spayed/Neutered
Hi there. My name is IZZY, I'm a 13 week old girl, and cute as cute can be. I'm the black bouncing beauty in my litter which also consists of brown tabbies, QUINTIN and XANDER. We are all adorable of course, but I have to tell you a secret: I have a mightier purr than my brothers, and tend to turn it on sooner. Just saying. We have typical kitten energy and offer cuddles galore, but sometimes we hold back a little bit, just until we feel comfortable with you. Hopefully you will find it in your heart to adopt 2 of us together. It's easy to do with the shelter's 2-for the price of 1 program. Kittens really love to have a cuddle/play pal, plus it's double the joy for you!

My name is XANDER, I'm a 13-week-old boy, and look very much like my brother, QUINTIN. Our sister IZZY is a fuzzy little black baby, whereas we are both brown tabbies. All of us are energetic, playful kittens who can be a bit shy at first. Once we know you however, we promise to keep you on your toes and young at heart. That's our job description and we're sticking to it! We would love to be adopted, using the shelter's 2-fur-1 program, with a sibling. If you think it's fun to have one kitten, just imagine the fun of having two-plus, kittens really like having a snuggle buddy and forever playmate.

When we first meet you we might be a tiny bit shy, however once we get to know you, we promise to keep you young at heart. If you adopt two of us together using the shelter's 2-fur-1 program, just think how youthful you are going to feel! Please come visit us today. We're waiting!

Hi. My name is DEKU, pronounced Deck-oo. I was raised in a foster home with my brother, and we had some adult cats for company. I am outgoing and adventurous, but also a bit insecure and I suck on my brother's ear for comfort.

 . PEAR .
 . PEAR .
  • Domestic Short Hair
  • Spayed/Neutered
My name is PEAR and I'm 9 weeks old. I have a twin tabby brother named APPLE JACK, and an orange brother named----yes, you guessed it---ORANGE. We make quite the peachy trio! We have abundant energy and adore playing together. Once we've exhausted ourselves, we sleep in a heap, dreaming our kitten dreams until it's time to wake up and play again. In between we enjoy human affection, and become little snuggle bugs until a toy catches our eye. Then we're off and running again. Kittens especially like sharing their home with a kitten pal. With the shelter's 2-fur-1 program you can take home two of us for one low price. Double the fun, and double the amount of time we will be pulling on your heartstrings.

 . KITTY .
 . KITTY .
  • Domestic Long Hair
  • Spayed/Neutered
KITTY is a beautiful 4-year-old Calico girl. Right now, she is a bit scared and prefers hiding in her hut type cat bed where she feels safe and secure. She enjoys gentle pets and sweet nothings. Give her a little time and KITTY will blossom into a wonderful companion for someone lucky enough to adopt this sweet girl. Cats often need time to adjust to their new surroundings. Although KITTY has been around children and other cats, she will need a patient owner who is experienced with timid cats and will not place her in overwhelming situations. When bringing KITTY home, it is important to remember she is going to need time and assistance to feel comfortable in her new environment. Do you have a place in your heart and home for KITTY? If so, please come adopt her today. She will be fur-ever grateful.

 . JASMINE .
 . JASMINE .
  • Domestic Short Hair
  • Spayed/Neutered
JASMINE is a wide-eyed, mainly black with white, year old girl who is very shy and confused about her new shelter environment. So far her comfort zone is under her bed with only her little white feet sticking out. It takes her awhile to feel relaxed with people so we are sitting quietly with her, talking softly and letting her know that she is safe. Jasmine will need a calm, quiet home and a patient, cat-savvy human who will let her take all the time she needs in order to feel comfortable and loved. Do you have a big enough heart and a calm enough home to help Jasmine blossom? Once she gets over her timidity she will be the loveliest of companions. -

Hi, I am WYLDER, a handsome 9-year-old kitty with large golden eyes. My previous family moved and could not take me with them so I am now looking for a new family and home. Head and neck scritches with a little sweet nothing goes a long way. I feel the love when you brush me. In my former home, I was a great nap partner, but I am not ready for that quite yet.

  • Domestic Long Hair
  • Spayed/Neutered
CHI is a 6-year-old longhair black and white female with a black patch over one eye, but there is nothing pirate-like about this lovely lady. She is a sweet, social kitty who meets and greets everyone and if petting does not come immediately, she rubs against peoples’ legs and mews softly. She considers it her right to be adored, but not too much. She will let you know when she has had enough. Having CHI in your life will bring balance and happiness. So, please won’t you consider adopting her today.

  • Domestic Long Hair

My name is SABRINA, and as you can see, I am an especially lovely, 3-year-old, long-haired princess kitty. Shelter life is not quite the palace I was hoping for, but people are kind to me here and are letting me find my comfort level in my own way. Treats help, I've discovered. If you are a gentle, patient person who will allow me plenty of time to adjust in my new home (even if it isn't a palace) you will help my inner love-bug to emerge, and we can be good friends.

Hello, I'm STELLONE, a 3 year old shorthair black kitty. My previous owner brought me to the shelter to find a new home, and although it took awhile to feel comfortable here, now I'm feeling great!

If I you have the time it will take to make me feel safe in my new home, please come adopt me today. My adoption fee has been prepaid by a generous donor.
