CAT ADOPTION ALERT: FINN – ALL THE WORLD’S A STAGE

Posted by on Sep 18, 2017 in Adoption | 0 comments

CAT ADOPTION ALERT:  FINN – ALL THE WORLD’S A STAGE

FINN is a one-year, six-month-old black and white male cat. Finn wandered into a backyard one day to take advantage of the food left down by a kindly resident. Finn was dirty, thin, and bore a few cuts. He had been owned at one time, and this made him an easy target for other street-wise male cats to bully him. The resident who spotted him could see Finn’s loneliness and fear, and brought him to us. We are so glad she did, because Finn is an exceptional feline. His wide green eyes take in all the hustle and...

CAT ADOPTION ALERT:  PANDA – A LONG-HAIRED TEDDY BEAR ON FEET

PANDA is a five-year-old long-haired black and white male cat. Panda came to us because his owner and his family are moving, and they cannot take Panda with them. Panda is having difficulty adjusting to shelter life, and the depression and loss is very visible in his beautiful green eyes. He especially loves teen-agers, as his former owner had a young lady in the household. He is very affectionate, and loves to roll over to show his tummy. Panda likes other cats, and loves to hang out on the couch with his human....

CAT ADOPTION ALERT:  STORY AND WHISPER – A BONDED LILAC POINT SIAMESE PAIR

STORY is a one-year, eleven-month old lilac point Siamese male cat. WHISPER is a one-year ten-month old lilac point Siamese female cat. Both Story and Whisper originally came to us from a breeder who was experiencing health issues, and decided to re-home these two beautiful felines. Both Story and Whisper lacked some social skills, and that was understandable given their background for a specific purpose, but got along quite well with other cats. Our volunteers and staff worked diligently to convince these two...

DOG ADOPTION ALERT: ABBY – THE ADORABLE CHIHUAHUA

ABBY is a four-year-old tan and white female Chihuahua. Abby came to us because her previous owners increased their working hours, and Abby was left alone for too long time periods. Abby loves other cats and dogs, and she would be an ideal companion to another pet. Abby loves car rides, is very intelligent, and loves to play: her favorite game is “Fetch!”. Abby is very sweet, and came to us accompanied by all her little outfits; she’s quite the fashion statement! If you’re looking for a great companion...

CAT ADOPTION ALERT: LEWIS– PLAY WITH ME!

LEWIS is a one-year old black male cat. Lewis was found in a residential area that unfortunately has a high turnover of renters. When he first came to us, he was so hungry he ate voraciously everything we placed before him! He at one time was owned, because he is very social. He likes other cats, and enjoys human companionship. Lewis is a sweet and adorable young man. He has a very silky coat, sparkling and curious eyes, and a deep meow that is quite unique. If you’re looking for an energetic and happy fellow,...

CAT ADOPTION ALERT: CLARENCE– A LONG-HAIRED BOY YEARNING TO BE LOVED

CLARENCE is a five year, six-month-old long-haired male orange cat. Clarence was found in a high turnover rental area, and he gravitated to a backyard where the kindly resident would put out food for stray cats. Clarence was the worse for wear; he was being attacked consistently by other cats. Clarence was very thin, uncertain, and his eyes were running perpetually when he first came to us. This poor boy was so exhausted he slept for days after arriving. Now that he is safe, with medical care and ample, nutritious...

CAT ADOPTION ALERT: MAYZIE – WHEN BAD THINGS HAPPEN TO GOOD CATS

MAYZIE is a one-year, two-month-old grey and white female cat. Mayzie was adopted from us last November as a kitten. Unfortunately, Mayzie’s owner lost her job, and found it necessary to move in with one of her children. Two cats were already residents in the new household, and that was the limit residents were allowed. Mayzie’s owner was devastated to have to return Mayzie to us, but the vagaries of life gave her little choice. That Mayzie was well-loved and well-cared for is evident, for she loves to greet...

CAT ADOPTION ALERT: SUSU – IF YOU’VE GOT A LAP, WE’VE GOT A CAT!

Susu is a one-year old black and white female cat. Susu was found in a residential area that unfortunately has a high turnover of renters. She was owned at one time, because she loves human companionship and loves to be held. Susu has a very easy-going manner, likes being in the safety of the shelter, and likes other cats. She’s a sweet cutie, and we laugh because when folks come to visit, she bounds to the front of her cage, sits and crosses her paws, and waits patiently for the visitors to come to her! If...

CAT ADOPTION ALERT: BETTY– A BEAUTIFUL CALICO GIRL

BETTY is a five-year-old female calico cat. Betty was found in a foreclosed house; the real estate agent who stopped in to see it heard her distressed crying. We have no idea how long Betty was there without food or water; when she came to us she had a matt so severe on her back that it was causing her intense pain. We had to shave her back to free the mat from its forceful pull on her skin and to alleviate the pain. Betty loves visitors, and cries to be stroked. She’s very vocal, and loves to talk. Betty will...

CATS ADOPTION ALERT: MOCHA AND MAX – AN ADORABLE PAIR OF TWO, ONE A CALICO TOO!

MOCHA is a four-year, five-month-old female calico cat. MAX is Mocha’s sibling and is a four-year, five-month-old black and white male cat. Their owner needed to move, and could not take the pair to the new residence, so they came to us. They are very much bonded, and are lost without the other. Mocha tends to take the lead, and Max is more than willing to let his sister go first! It was a very difficult transition from home life to shelter life for these two, and they were both very frightened and distressed...

LANA is a one year, four-month-old black and white female cat, and LEO is her one year, four-month-old black and white male sibling. Their former owner unfortunately experienced financial difficulties, and the pair came to us. They are both petite, with sparkling emerald green eyes and distinct black and white markings. They are very much bonded, and play, eat and cuddle together. Lana and Leo love human companionship and attention, and are very happy to bat a toy or two your way so you’ll play with them! If...

CAT ADOPTION ALERT: HONEY BOO- A SWEET AND CUDDLY FELINE

HONEY BOO is a one-year old grey and white female cat. Honey Boo was found by a customer of a convenience store, who saw Honey Boo and her four kittens huddled in a corner near the store. Honey Boo couldn’t walk, her front leg was fractured and infected to the bone. Honey Boo and her little ones came to us. Honey Boo’s leg is much better now that it’s cast and getting weekly bandage changes. She’s so cute…when she walked, thumping along, the puzzled expression on her face while she tried to figure out...

CATS ADOPTION ALERT: ANABELLE AND FRANCHESCA – AN UNIQUE COMBINATION OF CALICO AND TORTOISESHELL

ANABELLE is a three-year, three-month old female tiger and calico cat. Franchesca is an almost four year old tortoiseshell female cat. Their former owner had several cats, and was relocating. Unfortunately she could not take all the cats, so Anabelle and Franchesca, the bonded two of the household, came to us. Anabelle is very playful, and will roll over multiple times, gently grabbing at your hand to play with her and give her attention. Franchesca, the more reserved of the two, ambles over to join in, and we...

CAT ADOPTION ALERT: MADISON – PLAYDATE? I’M IN!

CAT ADOPTION ALERT:  MADISON – PLAYDATE? I’M IN!

MADISON is a two-year-old medium haired black and white male cat. Madison’s original owner wanted him to be an outside cat, so out he went. Madison lived under the porch, and a neighbor took him in. When he came to us, Madison had a nasty flea infestation, a cut leg, and was very thin. Madison also has a deep dislike of other cats, so we suspect he may have run afoul of a fellow feline or two. He was recently adopted from us, but his new owner’s hours increased dramatically at her employment, and this left...

CAT ADOPTION ALERT:  GUINESS – A PLAYFUL KITTEN-AT-HEART

GUINESS is a five-year-old black and white male cat. Guiness was adopted as a kitten, and has always been very playful and desirous of attention. As his owner is elderly, she has found that these endearing features of Guiness are unfortunately stressing her due to her age. So, this big boy came to us. And Guiness does love his attention! To gain it he’ll do lots – from rolling around and waving his paws at you, to head butts and rubs against your legs. If you’re looking for an adventurous, playful feline,...

CAT ADOPTION ALERT: FIGGY –DID YOU SAY BEAUTIFUL CALICO? THAT’S ME!

Posted by on Aug 9, 2017 in Adoption | 0 comments

CAT ADOPTION ALERT:  FIGGY –DID YOU SAY BEAUTIFUL CALICO? THAT’S ME!

FIGGY is a five-year-old dilute calico female cat. Though we don’t know the whole story, we suspect that Figgy’s young owner returned to her parents’ home, and Figgy could not tolerate the change. Calicos tend to be oriented most strongly to their owner(s); neither Figgy nor the other residents of the home were able to foster a bond with each other. Coming to the shelter was traumatic for Figgy, for it was an experience as alien to life as she formerly knew it. For two days she huddled in a corner and...

ROLO and SNICKERS are both one year, six-month-old brown and black tiger male cats. Both boys, along with two females, all came to us from the same household. Their former owner had experienced a financial setback, and was forced to change residences. The cats unfortunately could not go with her. Both boys are very much bonded, and they make us laugh, because they give grooming a new meaning! Rolo and Snickers make sure they are always clean and presentable, grooming each other quite consistently. They sleep...

CAT ADOPTION ALERT:  THOMAS – WANTED: A BFF WITH PATIENCE AND UNDERSTANDING

THOMAS is a four-year, two-month-old grey and white tiger male cat. Thomas was adopted from us as a young kitten, and he was somewhat timid and withdrawn. His new owners thought they were doing Thomas a kindness by allowing him to retain these characteristics, but he really needed socialization. It’s apparent that Thomas was well cared for, for he’s a beautiful and healthy boy. His family recently celebrated the birth of their new baby, but the baby’s unaccustomed presence drove Thomas into hiding. Hiding is...

CAT ADOPTION ALERT: ABE – LOOKING FOR LOVE

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. Abe had such a wound on his neck, and was in such intense pain, that he couldn’t put his left paw down. The wound was badly infected, and Abe was running a high fever because of it. We suspect our boy ran afoul of an unfriendly dog. He was very thin, hungry, and much the worse for wear. Now that his health and diet have improved...

MAILEY is a two year, six-month-old grey and white tiger female cat. Mailey unfortunately suffered an insecure life at her former residence; she was not fed properly or in sufficient quantity, and one day when she went near her owner’s food her owner struck her, then brought her to a park and abandoned her there. Two dogs chased Mailey up a tree, and a neighbor, seeing what had occurred before and after, went and paid for two young men to rescue Mailey from the tree. Mailey is very friendly, affectionate, and...

The children in the household acquired younger cats, and Alvin felt overwhelmed with the new additions.

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...

MIRA is a three-year, eight-month-old calico female cat. Mira was adopted from us in February of 2016, and unfortunately Mira’s residence had a change in circumstances, and Mira was returned to us. That Mira was well-taken care of and loved is apparent, for she is stunning in both looks and personality. Mira absolutely loves to be talked to, and will come right up to you, head tilted slightly to look up at you while you chat away with her. She loves to have her head scratched, and she’s no slouch when it comes...

CAT ADOPTION ALERT:  SYDNEY – DID YOU SAY SNUGGLE? I’M IN!

SYDNEY is a fourteen-year-old grey and white tiger female cat. Don’t let Sydney’s age fool you…she’s super healthy, affectionate, and robust. Her zest for life and love and laps are a wonder to behold. Sydney thinks she is her most adorable rolling over for you and showing you her…well…somewhat ample tummy. We agree with her; she is awfully cute when she does that! Sydney has a sad tale, she was adopted over eight years ago from a shelter, and her owner recently passed away. Despite having a companion...

CAT ADOPTION ALERT: CHUBBS – SAFE AT LAST!

CHUBBS is a one year old black and white male cat.  Chubbs was found in an industrial area with some residential housing, and he was very ill. Chubbs had a horrible upper respiratory infection, and without medical intervention he probably wouldn’t have made it. He was dirty, beat-up, and covered in scabs from wounds. Now that he has regained health, Chubbs has become an affectionate and easy-going feline. He loves other cats, and he loves his head scratched. He makes us laugh, because first thing in the morning...

CAT ADOPTION ALERT: SLUGGER – FERAL TO FABULOUS

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...

MR. BUTTONS is a four and a half old grey tabby male cat. Mr. Buttons was found in a residential neighborhood that experiences a high-turnover in renters. We suspect Mr. Buttons was a family cat at one time, and possibly abandoned. His foster parent advises us when he bonds with you, he bonds! Mr. Buttons loves to sleep next to his foster parent at night, and has a particular fondness for soft blankets. During the day Mr. Buttons loves to play with his toy mice, and wave string in front of Mr. Buttons, and he’s...

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,...

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...

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...

EVAN is a four-year-old grey male cat. We suspect at one time Evan had his own home, and somehow came to reside in a home that had numerous cats. We think this may have overwhelmed Evan, and that going from a quiet home to a tumultuous and chaotic environment may have shattered his confidence somewhat. Evan is blossoming under the care of our volunteers and staff, and we’ve discovered he loves to have his nose rubbed! He’s a beautiful boy, with startling green eyes that peer at you in hope, mixed with...

Yet she remained hopeful, and even though the hectic pace of our shelter overwhelmed her, when a friendly visitor arrived Gigi’s purr could be heard from across the room. Gigi was placed in a loving foster home where she has blossomed into a lap cat that loves to curl up on the cat condo near the window, munch on tasty cat treats and...

DALE is an eight-year-old medium haired orange and white male cat. Dale spent most his life in a backyard, where the kindly resident made food available to him. One day, however, Dale seemed quite ill, and the concerned resident contacted a volunteer, who went to assist Dale. When Dale arrived at our shelter, he was literally dying. Dale was malnutritioned, with ulcers in his mouth and a sorely needed dental surgery. He had matts so severe he could barely move, and he was suffering anemia. Not anymore! Dale is...
