Cats for Adoption
Crisco has been with me since he was a big kitten -- over
two years! -- but has not been adopted. He's a very sweet
cat, a little timid at first, but affectionate and cuddly.

Lucky (Crisco's brother) was adopted over a year ago -- but
returned today because he wouldn't use the scratching post.
The children in his former family miss him bitterly. One of
them wrote:
He takes a little while to settle down. He is on the skittish
side, even once he gets to know you. He enjoys sleeping on
people's laps and prefers one on one rather than a group of
people. Once he gets to know and trust you he is very loving
and friendly. He enjoys chasing after balls and playing peek a
boo.
He hasn't been skittish with me at all: he already found the cat
bed and liked it when I petted him there.

Pastel came in with a litter of kittens, all of whom have been
adopted; now it's her turn.
She was spayed today and is now ready for a permanent home.
What is she like? Gentle, affectionate, calm. Good with the other
animals. An ideal cat.
And yes, she's half Siamese, blue eyes and all.

Nelson was discovered sitting on a windowsill pleading to be let
inside. He had clearly been abandoned.
He's a big, very confident cat, affectionate and soliciting
attention. He's the kind of cat who needs a lot of interactive play
or another cat to wrestle with. When he's bored he can get nippy,
but he's not at all nasty -- just a little rough.
Nelson also likes dogs -- I mean really likes them! So if you have
a dog who'd like a feline friend, come meet Nelson.

Lucy is a friendly redhead found wandering outside -- already
spayed!
She's talkative and loves attention.
Who wouldn't love Lucy?

Debbie and Julie were born to a feral
mother and brought to me scared and
with nasty eye infections.
They're calm and healthy now and have
been spayed.

Debbie was adopted June 25.
Brutus is an older cat (how old? no idea) with a mellow
personality. He came here in terrible condition: ragged, filthy,
and missing all his front teeth.
I had him tested for feline hemobartonella, which can cause the
kind of damage I saw in his mouth -- and yes, he was positive.
The good news is that the disease is completely curable and he
has now been treated. He won't get his teeth back, but his coat
is becoming smooth and sleek.
If you're looking for a cat who's just plain nice, Brutus may be
for you.

Bluette showed up in someone's yard. She must have been dumped
because she was friendly, not feral.
She's a tiny creature, perhaps three months old. She's been fully
vetted and there are no health issues.
And her motor is in excellent working order.

Maxwell was a surprise: I had my trap out because I'd seen an
unfamiliar cat outside -- and when I looked out the window
there was this huge tomcat I hadn't known existed! Turns out
he's a darling: very gentle and friendly.
He's completely vetted now and ready for a new home.

Buster was brought to me by the same person who gave me
Brutus -- and although she swears they came from different
colonies they look and act like brothers.
Buster (unlike Brutus) 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 under treatment and healing nicely).
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.
