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.

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?

Julie was born to a feral mother and brought to me scared and with a nasty eye
infection.
She has now been completely vetted and is ready to make friends and enjoy a new
home.

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.

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. And Buster, like
Brutus, tested positive for feline hemobartonella and is under
treatment.
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 healed 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.

Shake, Rattle and Roll (Shake is the boy) are a friendly, lively set of kittens. They're about four months old and fully vetted.
The females (all black) appear to be part Siamese: they have the elegant bone structure.

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.

Twink is a delightful kitten, about four months old, who was
living under a dumpster when she was found. She must have
been abandoned there, because she clearly had a home once:
she's purry and friendly.

Mary-Beth is a stunning tiger longhair with a tail like a
feather boa. She is also very sweet.
She appeared in a colony someone was feeding, clearly a
dump (she was so friendly). She was spayed today and is
ready for a home.
