Kitty and Ambrosia - Special Adoption: 2 for 1
Adopt Kitty and Ambrosia Together, and the Adoption Fee Will Be Waived For the Second Cat.

Kitty -  I am a 7 year old neutered male who came to my foster home two months ago. In my previous home I was left alone after my human became ill and then passed away, so I didn’t get a lot of attention. I'm am set in my ways and my foster mom says I have a kitty attitude sometimes, but what kitty doesn't? I don't like to be picked up, but I love to sit on your lap or next to you on the couch or bed. Sometimes, if you pet me, I will start wagging my tail and I may swat you. I can play rough, but I am learning how to play since I never played much before. I sometimes will give play bites but I don’t hurt you, I am just showing my love to you. I do not like wet food but love my dry food, and I can't get enough of those yummy Temptation treats, which I am learning how to ask for and take from my human. I don’t like being alone because I was alone for so long. I love having my foster mom with me all the time when she is home. I would not do well with young children or dogs. A quiet home would be good for me.
I even made a fur friend here and I would love to find a home that would take both of us. My friend  is Ambrosia, a spayed female who is 2 or 3 years old.  We love to run around together. Ambrosia loves wet food and treats as well. She is very shy and runs away when you try to touch her, but she will come to you for treats. We need a someone special who has lots of patience, and we will reward you with lots of love.

Both cats are spayed/neutered, up to date  with vaccines, and negative for FIV and FeLV.
They are currently in a foster home. If you are interested in meeting or adopting them, email, or use the link above to complete and email us an application.

Peanut Butter c 2021

Peanut Butter

Peanut Butter might be a senior cat, but he is a wonderful cat! Peanut Butter is a beautiful, long-haired, 15 year old male who was surrendered when his owner moved. Peanut Butter is very sweet and gentle. He has become adjusted to shelter life, and is very affectionate, and even playful. Peanut Butter eagerly greets volunteers who go into his playroom. He seeks attention, and loves being petted and brushed. Peanut Butter also enjoys chasing the string on a fishpole toy. In his former home Peanut Butter was the only pet; he has never lived with children, dogs, or other cats. Peanut Butter is hyper-thyroid, and requires Rx food and/or medication to control his thyroid condition. Peanut Butter will be a delightful pet for the person who gives him a home for his golden years.

Slyder 6 2021


A special person is needed to give Slyder a loving home. Slyder has had a very tough time.He came to us as a stray with ear problems that required extensive surgery at Tufts to remove benign polyps. During all the treatment and medication Slyder was a sweet boy, and never aggressive. While recovering in a foster home, Slyder enjoyed running free and watching birds through a window. Slyder is an affectionate, gentle, quiet, neutered male who is about 4 years old. He will be a loving pet for the person who chooses him.
