Meet our Cats

Special Needs Kittens

We have some very special kitties currently in foster. Itsy, Willie & Sneakers have been living with one of our volunteers since they were 7 weeks old. Their mom was infected when she was rescued. Her and another sibling have already been placed.

These three beautiful kittens have tested positive for the feline leukemia virus. This is by no means a death sentence for them. They are happy, healthy and normal in every way. They must be placed in a home with no other cats OR in a home with other FeLV positive cats, where they will live happily... For more information on these sweeties, please inquire at PALS.  They will be restested one final time in late February at our (PALS) expense. There is a small chance that they may test negative. Serious inquiries only please. A completed adoption application will be needed to start the process. Apointments to meet these kitties in their current foster home will be set up after your application has been approved.

Beth is a beautiful 4 year old female. She just returned from a relaxing week in foster where she thrived in her own space without the confines of a cage. Beth is rather sedate and craves a soft voice and gentle hand to pet her. Beth will need to be an only cat as she prefers not to share the spotlight.

Cleo is a 6 year old petite, friendly and loving girl.  A bit shy at first, she will melt in your arms to be loved.  Cleo has quickly become a favorite with our volunteer staff with her gentle, affectionate nature.



Dear Cody is a love bug, once he gets to trust you.  This handsome 6 year old gray tabby loves to give head butts, rubbing your legs, and asks for ear scratches and petting.   Like many cats, he does not like to be held for a long period of time.  Cody does enjoy the company of other cats, once properly introduced.

Susie is a stunning 10 year old Red Patch Tabby.  She is petite and friendly and in excellent health.  Susie does not like other cats so her ideal home will be a quiet home where she can be the queen.

peach1 800x800Peach, with a soulful face and a tiny meep, is a one-year-old female tabby looking for a somewhat quiet home. She doesn't shy away from meeting new people, and will greet you with an extended paw or a little meow, but she has let her foster mom know she is not a fan of the vacuum, blender, doorbell - or other cats. Peach loves indulging in a bit of human food (a piece of chicken here, a smidgen of roast beef there) and is most friendly when dinner is served. Having come from a loud environment, Peach enjoyed curling up in a comfy bed in the closet while in foster care, and sought out sunny window ledges for her naps. She is, however, still a young kitty, and has been playing with the feather wand and cat nip toys. Although she may not like to be picked up at the moment, she does like being around you and will most likely choose the foot of your bed as her new favorite sleeping spot.
