Buster is FIV+ (which means he's been exposed, not that he'll
necessarily get sick -- though of course he may). He also came
in with the worst ear infection I've ever seen (he's healed
But the big story about Buster is his disposition: all he wants
out of life is petting and loving and he gives it back multiplied.
This is a cat who gives you his belly to rub and doesn't maul
you when you rub it. A real sweetheart.

Roll (seen here with Crisco) and her sister Rattle are a year old and fully vetted. They appear to be part Siamese: they
have the elegant bone structure.
Roll is a little thing, a bit shy but responding to holding and petting. She's turning into quite the cuddle!
Rattle is more aloof -- more of a cat's cat.
They don't have to be placed together.

Victor was brought to me by the woman who's been feeding
him outside. She has to move back to her country and is trying
to find safe havens for the cats she's been caring for.
Victor is a big, sweet guy -- trusting and gentle. He'll make some
lucky person a wonderful pet.

Gabriel is a lovely young cat. When he was found he had an
entropion: an eyelid folded the wrong way and rubbing against
his eye. It was surgically corrected, but his right eye is smaller.
He is also positive for FIV -- which means he's been exposed,
not that he'll necessarily get sick. And he is NOT contagious.
He's got a great personality.

Randolph was found outside with a feral colony -- but he wasn't
feral. Somebody must have dumped him there.
He just came in today and is a little shell-shocked, but he seems to be
a sweet guy.

Update: He's becoming very friendly, talking to me when I'm near
his cage, rubbing his face on my hand and enjoying petting. He'll
make someone a lovely pet.
Daisy has the softest fur you'll ever touch. She's a gentle cat,
quiet and loving. Truly a daisy.

Destiny, despite his feminine-sounding name, is a male cat --
He was brought to me for no other reason than that his owner
had gotten tired of him. He's about five years old, perfectly
He was depressed when he first arrived, but is now adjusting
nicely, responding to petting, exploring the premises and
making friends with my dog. A dignified gentleman.

Pookie was found wandering the street. He was a full grown
tomcat, not neutered, so maybe he was put out because he
smelled bad. He's fully vetted now -- and one of the sweetest
cats I've ever met. He was purring while I vaccinated him!
He'll make somebody a spectacular pet.

Cookie was found wandering, evidently just abandoned.
He's an active, playful young guy (not yet full grown).
Friendly and talkative.

Melanie looks like a black cat at first glance, but she's really a
very dark tiger. Gorgeous!
I found her in an alley, already spayed (my vet found a scar
when he shaved her belly). What's her history? Why was she
When I found her she let me pick her up, carry her two
blocks, through doors and past my dog -- but then she got
upset because she didn't like being caged. She's gradually

Noah was rescued right after a flooding rainstorm.
He's an affectionate, very vocal cat, good with my other
animals. A sweetie.

Cuddles was just returned to me after being adopted four
years ago: her owner is traveling and trying to find friends
to care for her cat turned out to be too much trouble.
So Cuddles is here again, slowly getting used to living in a
shelter again. She'd rather be an only pet.
I hope she's adopted soon and can be the one and only
beloved pet she used to be.

Double and Darling are littermates. They have been here a
very short time and are still very shy, so they require adoptive
homes where people will be patient and willing to work with
All their veterinary work has been done.

Update (July 15):
Darling now arches her back with pleasure when I scratch it --
and Double is also starting to respond. They're shaping to be
very nice cats.
Both now come trustfully to me to be handled.
Little Bear came to me in a shopping cart: his caretaker had
left her abusive boyfriend and was about to go into a homeless
shelter herself. I had no cages open and the cat would be hard
to place: black, eight years old, overweight...
So I said no. The woman cried. She talked about putting the
cat out on the street. And all the time Little Bear lay there
quietly, giving me a long, steady look.
I don't know what happened to the woman, but Little Bear is
here -- and he's simply wonderful: follows me around, wants
to be petted, gives me his belly to rub. As nice as a cat can be.

Damon, Domino, Dusty, Dawn and Dusk arrived as feral kittens: never handled.
The surprising thing is how docile they were from the first moment, allowing me to apply Revolution and lift
them into their cage without trying to scratch or bite. Yesterday I vaccinated them without incident. Today
they'll all be neutered (Dawn and Dusk are the females) and then they'll be ready for homes.
I expect that in a few days they'll be welcoming, not just tolerating, petting: they're amazingly intelligent.

They are now neutered and progressing with their socialization.
The only problem is that Damon has a retained testicle and the vet wants to wait until he's older -- so he's not
September 11: Dusty was adopted.
