CAT ADOPTION ALERT: HAZEL – A BEAUTIFUL LONG-HAIRED PART CALICO GIRL

HAZEL is a two-year-old tiger and calico female cat. She was found in a residential neighborhood, and trundling along behind her were her five kittens, four of which were rag dolls! That told us right away this young girl was unique. A neighbor had recognized her from the neighborhood, and suspected her former home had not provided the best of care for her, and ultimately abandoned her. This kindly neighbor took her in and fostered her, and she blossomed under her care and ministrations. Hazel was a great mom, and...

CAT ADOPTION ALERT: MARCEL – PICK ME! PICK ME!

MARCEL is a five-year-old orange male cat. Marcel came to us from an owner that is moving, and cannot take all of her several cats. A year ago another cat came into the household and took an intense dislike to Marcel. This poor boy had a pretty significant cut on the top of his head from that dislike! Marcel, we have discovered, loves children and is very affectionate with them. Marcel is playful, and loves to cuddle. He also loves it when you to talk to him, and he comes bouncing to the front of his cage to...

CAT ADOPTION ALERT:  MILLIE – MOVE OVER BEACH BOYS, MILLIE’S GIVING GOOD VIBRATIONS!

MILLIE is a four-year-old black female cat. Millie was found outside in a backyard, and in tow were her six kittens. Millie was extremely anxious and nervous, and rightly so, the chances of survival for her and her little ones were slim. Millie was a great mom, and now that all her babies are safe and secure it’s Millie’s turn! Our shelter staff and volunteers have worked diligently with Millie, and she is blossoming into an ideal feline companion. Millie loves to be petted, and she’s discovered cat toys,...

CAT ADOPTION ALERT: CHUNKY – MEDIUM HAIRED, AND JUST LIKE THE CANDY, SWEET AND RICH

CHUNKY is a two year, ten-month-old medium haired black and white male cat. Chunky came from the area that was in the news last February, when a resident of the neighborhood was accused of pouring bleach on food left for the stray cats in the area. Chunky was in bad shape; he had ear mites so severe one ear was left close to his head. He had various wounds and scars from his ordeal to survive outside, and was terrified and withdrawn. Our shelter manager worked extensively with him, and Chunky is a different boy...

HONEY is an approximately fifteen year old orange and white female cat. Honey’s owner needed to relocate to a nursing home, and a friend of hers took Honey for her. Honey’s new caretaker needs hip replacement surgery, and is concerned for Honey’s well-being and care as she has not been able to place her with another care-taker.

CAT ADOPTION ALERT: SPIKE – BFF WANTED, CAT BED A PLUS

SPIKE is a three year old grey male cat. Spike was formerly a resident at a high-kill shelter, and his name was on the list. Fortunately an individual recognized his potential, took him, and brought him to us. Spike was underweight, nervous, and with an upper respiratory infection. Good food and antibiotics started him on the road to health, and Spike thinks a cat bed is the greatest invention! Once Spike was on the mend, our staff and volunteers diligently worked to convince him human beings were pretty decent,...

CAT ADOPTION ALERT: JASMINE – NOT JUST A PRETTY FACE

JASMINE is a seven year old black and white female cat. We received a call from another rescue organization regarding two cats they thought were originally ours. We went to get them, and discovered these were offspring of Jasmine, so we took her also! She was very ill, with a severe upper respiratory infection. Despite the constant handling, poking, and prodding Jasmine was a gentle and affectionate feline. She’s a big girl, and has the personality to match. Jasmine is very affectionate and very playful.

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

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...

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...

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...

CAT ADOPTION ALERT:  MIRA – A PRETTY AND PERSONABLE CALICO

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. Mira had difficulty transitioning back to shelter life, so a kindly volunteer took Mira in as a foster. Mira’s foster home is quite the household, with children, a dog, and a fellow feline. Mira at first was somewhat reluctant to participate in household affairs, but now comes running when her foster mom calls her....

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: MR. BUTTONS – CUTE AS A…YOU GUESSED IT…A BUTTON!

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,...

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...
