DORI is a one-year old brown and black tiger female cat. Dori was found underneath a porch in an inner city residential neighborhood, and was terribly frightened and very hungry.

ROMEO is a two-year-old black male cat. We suspect Romeo may have been abandoned, for new tenants to a house brought Romeo to us.

ABE is a one year, six-month-old grey and white male cat. Abe was found in an inner city residential neighborhood, and it was very apparent this young man was seriously injured.

CAT ADOPTION ALERT: DAISY – THE MAINE COON CAT, NOT THE FLOWER

DAISY is a seven-year-old Maine Coon tiger with white chest female cat. Daisy has a bit of an odd tale in how she came to us; her former owner left her in the waiting room, secure in a cat carrier and a folder with her health records nearby.

CAT ADOPTION ALERT:  COOKIE – THE CAT, NOT THE CONFECTIONERY TREAT

COOKIE is a seven-year-old grey and white male cat. Cookie was surrendered to us by his former owners, for they acquired a dog that disliked Cookie. We think there is more behind the story however, because the day Cookie came to us he drank copious amounts of water, and we suspected diabetes. Tests showed indeed our Cookie was diabetic. Fortunately, it is food controlled now, and we keep him on a diet suitable to maintain his health and well-being, which is Fancy Feast (original). Cookie is a lap cat from the word...

CAT ADOPTION ALERT:  FRANK – FACEBOOK RULES!

FRANK is a four-year-old long-haired buff male cat. Facebook saved this boy, no doubt about it. Many people remarked about seeing this boy on Niantic Avenue, and how beat up he was, and the awful things he was eating to survive. Good people tried to rescue him, but in his fear and isolation he would scurry from them, afraid of being hurt or worse. A determined volunteer went looking for him, and he came to us. This poor boy had a horrible wound, and he was very hungry and so thin. Frank is a sweet boy, and he’s...

SCARLETT is a one-year-old black and white cat. Scarlett was found on the outskirts of a farm, and trailing behind were her small and sick kittens. Scarlett was so very thin, and she’s petite to begin with, and just a baby herself it was a wonder any of them survived their ordeal struggling in an outside environment.

SARGE is a seven-year-old grey and white male cat.

SLUGGER is a six-year-old grey and white male cat. Slugger was rescued from a junkyard, where it appears he lived most of his life – his ears are crinkled, testimony to the struggles he endured to survive. Slugger went into foster care, and we wondered if this boy could ever learn to be anything but withdrawn and frightened. Turns out he could, thanks to the kindness, patience, and gentleness of his foster family. Slugger spent the entire first month rooted in his litterbox, eyes darting back and forth, and...

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??

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.
