CAT ADOPTION ALERT: WINNIE AND GUS – A FRIEND IN NEED IS A FRIEND INDEED

WINNIE is a one year, three-month-old brown and black tiger female cat. Winnie was found in an industrial area, living in a vacant factory with other cats. Winnie had a damaged left paw, and it was so damaged you could see the bones of her foot. It was not a new injury, and we suspect she may have tangled with an animal in the area. The damage was so bad it cost Winnie her leg. GUS is a two-year-old black and white male cat Gus wandered into a backyard, scared and hungry. A kindly resident fed him and took him in,...

CAT ADOPTION ALERT:  ARCTIC GEM – A LILAC POINT SIAMESE IN PROGRESS

ARCTIC GEM is an eight-year-old lilac point Siamese female cat. Arctic Gem was acquired for breeding purposes, and she’s been quite the workhorse in her lifetime. The breeder is experiencing health issues, and Gem came to us.

CAT ADOPTION ALERT:  ROCKY BALBOA – THE MINI PANTHER

ROCKY BALBOA is a two-year, six-month-old black cat. Rocky was found in an inner-city neighborhood, much the worst for wear. Rocky was missing hair from his back and chest, and his chest was so scabbed that we wondered what wild animal could this poor boy have encountered – a bear?? Despite what this boy experienced in trying to survive on the streets, his personality is incredible. Rocky is so happy to be warm, fed, and to have a comfy bed to nap in. He’s very affectionate, and will bound over to see you...

Dominic was found wandering a residential neighborhood, and this poor boy’s ordeal in the struggle to survive outside was apparent.

He had cuts all over his body. To get him back in physical health...

CAT ADOPTION ALERT:  CHARLIE – I FOUGHT THE STREET, AND I WON

CHARLIE is a three-year-old buff and white male cat. He was found living under a pile of garbage to stay warm and safe, and was brought to us. He was very ill with an upper respiratory infection, and one eye was so infected it was closed. Charlie was limping quite badly, and needed to rest. We suspect he was abandoned, for as he becomes more confident that he is safe and cared for, he’s becoming much more social and curious about his environment. Charlie is very sweet, and grows more affectionate with each...

ZELDA is a two-year-old female black cat. Zelda was found trying to survive in the outside world, and getting ready to bear her young. We can only imagine the terror and grueling life this young girl endured on the streets. Despite Zelda’s fear and uncertainty she held fast, and stayed by her babies and cared for them. A kind and generous foster parent took Zelda and her four kittens in, and Zelda made great strides in her foster home. Zelda learned that humans could be kind and gentle, and more and more she...
