Cassidy bed 2021


Cassidy came to the shelter as a stray. He is probably around ten years old. Cassidy is up to date with vaccines, and his blood panel indicates no issues. Although very sweet and gentle with humans, Cassidy does not like other cats. He  is curious, enjoys walking around the shelter to explore, likes to drink water from the faucet, and finds his favorite spot on a cat perch. Cassidy loves people (and food). He will sit at the door to his playroom, looking at volunteers, and waiting for someone to go into his room and pet him. Cassidy is a super affectionate lap-cat. Sit in a chair and he will jump into your lap and stay there to be petted forever. At the shelter Cassidy is eating a prescription diet of Hill’s I/D for his sensitive stomach.

Jay a 2021


Jay was adopted from us eight years ago, but surrendered because of his owner's health. Twelve year old Jay is an outgoing boy who seeks attention. In his former home Jay enjoyed petting, laps, and sleeping with his owner. Jay got along with another cat in the home, but he has not lived with children or dogs. Jay is current on vaccines, and a recent blood panel showed normal results.

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 living in a foster home. 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’ve learned to like wet food; I 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, where someone is home during the day..
In my foster home I get along with the resident cats, and I made a friend with another cat who is looking for a home, 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, and who has had a litter of kittens.  We love to run around together and play with toys. Ambrosia loves wet food and treats as well, and she is absolutely crazy about Fish Flakes treats. She is very shy and sometimes runs away when you try to touch her, but she will come to you for treats. Ambrosia is getting better about being petted, and she is a purr machine. She loves attention, but on her terms. 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 need a quiet home, with no small children, and with someone who is home during the day.
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.

Millie 2021


Millie is currently on maternity leave, but she will be available for adoption soon, after she is spayed. Millie is a 2 year old, short hair female who was surrendered with another cat when their owner moved. Millie is friendly and non-aggressive, but she is skittish and shy at first, and she will need a patient owner as she adjusts to a new home. Once she gets comfortable, Millie is a love bug who purrs contentedly when scratched behind her ears. Millie will be a fantastic pet for the right person.

Penny a 2021


Penny is a 3 year old, indoor cat who was surrendered because of a change in her home situation. In her former home Penny was affectionate, inquisitive, playful with toys and catnip, and enjoyed petting. She can be shy at first, but she loves attention once she feels comfortable. Penny should be the only pet in the  home.

TiddlyWinks red 2021

Tiddly Winks

When Tiddly Winks first came to the shelter as a stray she was somewhat feisty, but while at the shelter she has mellowed. Now, if she trusts you, she is likely to jump into your lap.  She can be playful, and she likes petting and treats. We estimate that Tiddly Winks is about 2 years old.  Tiddly Winks doesn’t get along with other cats, so she should be the only cat in the home.
