Our COOL CATS Welcome You to
Connie's Cat House!
Dedicated to the memory and generosity of Tri-Lakes Humane Society supporter, Constance DePriest.
Beginning Monday, November 27 through Sunday, December 17, we will be featuring the cats/kittens just below at the PetSmart Adoption Center (PAC) on S. Glenstone in Springfield. So, if you are looking for that "purrfect" Christmas gift for a loved one,
this is the best idea ever!!!
Georgette Mistletoe Brownie
We are waiting to meet you and would love to wish you and everyone a very "Meowy Christmas"!
Anastasia is a beautiful little Tortoiseshell kitten, 5 months old and spayed and ready to go home with you today. She is still a little shy, but getting more outgoing every day. She is very sweet and loves to be petted and held. She is just a little shy with new things and new people, but we know once you get this little beauty home all that shyniess will vanish. Her Tortoiseshell colors are very unusual, more gray and black than gold and black. Cool!!!
Anton is - without a doubt - the biggest cat we have ever seen and not a Maine Coon!!! He is 5 years old and neutered, weighing in at 28 lbs.!!! Anton is still a little shy, but moving him into our laundry room and having a wonderful volunteer work with him, has helped his disposition a lot! He loves to be petted and brushed. Anton's person passed and no family to care for him, so he and several friends and relatives came to the shelter. You must come and meet Anton, he doesn't require a lot of attention, just a nice home to live in and a little exercise and diet food :)
as you will notice - their names end in a "T" - usually we start names with a certain letter, now we are trying to be creative. And you may notice they all look just a little scared - and they were a bit :( but both are much better now. Bart loves to be petted and isn't too bad to be picked up. Mozart loves the petting, just not being picked up. They are 6 months old now, neutered and ready to go home with you today. They get along together fabulously and would be the purrfect pair to adopt together, because Bart would help Mozart with that little bit of shyness he still has. In fact, they are on our "2FURR" adoption list! That IS Purrfect!!!
Biscotti & Brownie
are both super sweet and friendly. Biscotti is a most handsome cream/silver Tabby kitten, Brownie has the cutest brownish/red face with huge black stripes in his coat! They are 6 months old and neutered. They were rescued as tiny kittens and taken very good care of until we had room. They love to be petted and love to play. They will make their person very happy and would love to go home with you today - maybe as a pair? They get along fabulously!
Gingerbread is a very handsome buff colored American Shorthair with that really cool swirly coat, 5 months old and neutered. He was the tiniest bit shy in the beginning, but not any more. He is super sweet and affectionate, loves everybody and loves to be petted. He's the last available kitten in his family and he's ready to go home with you today. Come meet Gingerbread, we're sure you will love this little guy instantly!
Elsa is a beautiful Tortoiseshell cat, 1 year old and spayed. She was taken in as a stray, but loves people and loves to be with them, so we're pretty sure she was somebody's best furrever friend. She is very friendly, loves to be petted and is not a bit shy - except maybe a little camer shy :) Elsa would love to meet you and go home with you today. Very nice girl!
Goldie (and her reflection:)) Mariah Ruth
are super cute and super sweet kittens, 7 months old. Frankensense is neutered, the sisters, Ruth, Mariah and Goldie are spayed. They each have their own individual little personalities, but not really a shy one among them. Goldie was so cute squished between the window and a cage, that we couldn't resist getting her reflection in there :) Frankensense was not sure about moving day (upstairs to downstairs), but Mariah and Ruth were okay with posing for photo day! Come meet this little family and see which kitten best suits your eye :)
Fredrick is a very nice cat, 2 years old and neutered, and a very handsome white cat, too! His person had too many cats so brought Fredrick and a few others to the shelter. He is very sweet and loving, never meets a stranger and would love to meet you and go home with you today. Fredrick is a no-trouble-at-all cat, as well and seems to get along well with other cats. Purrfect!
Georgette & Mistletoe
are really nice kittens, just weren't sure what the camera was about. They are both very friendly, love people and love to be petted. They are very playful and get along together fabulously. They were taken in as tiny strays, but taken very good care of and well socialized before coming to the shelter. They are 5 months old and spayed (both girls). They would love to meet you and go home with you today - maybe as a pair, if you have the room :)
Herman is such a nice boy, he was a little shy at first, but much better now. He is all white except for his little gray cap and nice black tail. Herman is a pretty big boy, coming in at about 18 lbs.! He is 2 years old and neutered. Herman and (we think maybe brother, Toby) lived with a mom and daughter who were having to move and couldn't take the boys with them. Herman is very sweet, does love to be petted and is way ready to go home with you today, maybe with Toby, too?
Lana's disposition has improved a lot since first coming to the shelter :) She is 1 year old and spayed, a pretty little Tortoiseshell cat. Her person had too many cats, so Lana and 4 kittens (not available yet) came to the shelter when the kittens got old enough. We think once you get her home she will be a real sweetheart - and we think she will be a great in/out cat once she's aware of her surroundings.
Lexie was taken in as a stray by an elderly couple who then realized they weren't able to care for her. She is 2 years old and spayed. Lexie is a pretty white and black cat, but she's terribly shy right now. We know that will all change once you get her home. She loves to be petted, just not much on being picked up yet. But hey! there are a lot of cats like that! She just needs a little TLC!
Phoebe is a pretty, mostly white cat with yellow stripes in all the right places. She is 3 years old and spayed. Phoebe's person had to move and couldn't take the cats along. She is a sweet cat, still a little shy, being new to the shelter, but that's gotten much better in just a short time. She has a very soft coat and she loves to be petted and brushed. Phoebe is a no-trouble-at all cat and she's ready to go home with you today!
Picasso is a most handsome white cat (his brother got adopted) with 1 blue eye and 1 gold eye!. His person took him in as a tiny stray and took very good care of him until we had room. He is a very friendly, affecetionate cat, never meets a stranger and loves everybody. Picasso is 7 months old and neutered and ready to go home with you today. He seems to get along well with other cats, too. Picasso is a sweetheart that you will love instantly!
Pixie is the cutest little kitten, 3 months old and spayed. She came to the shelter because her person had too many cats. She loves people and loves to play. She's not a bit shy and she would love to go home with you today. She was taken very good care of in her home, there was just soooo many :) Pixie will make someone that purrfect Christmas present and she's ready for her Christmas bow :)
Praline was somewhat feral when she came to the shelter and she certainly was not up for posing for the camera! She is 2 years old and spayed, a beautiful Dilute Tortoiseshell cat. Praline came from a subdivision that has a TNR program, but no one offered her a home after she was spayed. So, safe and sound at the shelter, she is now letting us pet her and pick her up and hold her. We think she will make someone the purrfect little best friend with just a little TLC!
Sassy is a beautiful buff colored longhair cat 5 years old and spayed. Her family had to move and couldn't take her along. She loves people and loves to be petted. Sassy never meets a stranger and would love to meet you and go home with you today. She is really soft right now because we recently shaved her and if you can keep up with that there will be no matts to bother her and she does like to be brushed. Beautiful girl and very sweet!
Sky is the cutest little silver Tabby kitten with lots of white underneath and the biggest light green eyes ever! He is 4 months old and neutered, super sweet and affectioate. Sky never meets a stranger and he would love to meet you today. His person had a life change and became unable to keep him. Sky will make someone the purrrfect little best friend and he's ready to go home with you today!
Toby's just sure you've never seen a cuter, big round face! He and his maybe brother, Herman, mother/daughter, but they had to move and couldn't take them with. He is super sweet, loves people and loves to be petted. He's a very handsome boy, wearing his orange colored cap, 2 years old and neutered. Toby would love to meet you today and check out Herman, they get along together very well :)
Tom has moved into the laundry room with Anton and they are getting along fabulously. He loves to lay on the beds when they are piled at least 4 high :) We think he thinks maybe he's the "Prince and the Pea" :) He is 4 years old and neutered, a very handsome silver Tabby cat that has a little bit of a skin issue. We think the most of his skin issue was stress from having to live in a cage most of the day, so now that he's in the laundry room, his hair is growing back and he's quite handsome! Tom loves to be petted and loves people. He's better if you don't pick him up, but he will definitely climb right into your lap whether you are ready for him or not. And, Tom is DECLAWED!!!
Treasure has a sister named Fern and this little pair are super cute and suepr sweet, just a little shy. They are 3 months old, both spayed and ready to go home with you today. Treasure is a super cute little black kitten very sweet and very playful. Fern is the cutest little gray Tabby kitten that loves people and loves to be petted. This would be the purrfect pair to adopt together. They get along fabulously and they are quiet, not too rambunctious and very sweet! Purrfect!!!
Velvet has really come around, not shy now at all, She is 4 years old and spayed. Velvet's person moved away and abandoned her, so she's had a rough go of it and needs just a little TLC and a new home to come back into her old self again. She is a pretty cat, mostly all white with yellow spots in all the right places and 1 tiny black spot on her back :) Velvet would love to meet you and go home with you today. She does love to be petted and she would be so happy with a nice, new lap to take naps in!
Please remember, even though they are living in your barn or outbuilding - they still need to be fed! Don't just turn them out and forget about them! THANK YOU!
Aspen is a cute kitten, 5 months old and spayed, but we're not sure if she will ever make it as a house cat. She and siblings were brought in as slightly feral (without us suspecting). She has had all her shots and is ready to go home with you today, but she might be best living in your barn or outbuilding - and we think one of her siblings below would like to go home with her :)
Flurry is one of the more friendly, tame kittens in this little family. He is 5 months old and neutered and isn't he handsome. He does like to be petted occasionally and doesn't act like it bothers him too much. He would probably make a good in/out cat and as he gets used to his surroundings and new person, we think he will warm up some.
Oaken has the cutest little face, doesn't he? He is another one in this family that might come around and make a good in/out cat. He is okay with being petted and almost seems to like it :) He is 5 months old and neutered, wants to be a sweet boy, just can't get it mustered up quite yet :)
Oakley would definitely be the barn cat type - don't you just love that face :) He is 5 months old, just like siblings above and has no intentions of coming around to be a indoor (house) cat - but he would like to be an indoor (barn) cat, we're pretty sure. So if you are thinking you need 2 kittens to grow up in your barn here's a nice selection to choose from!
