Our COOL CATS Welcome You to
Connie's Cat House!
Dedicated to the memory and generosity of Tri-Lakes Humane Society supporter, Constance DePriest.
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 :)
Bandit is a very handsome boy, 2 years old and neutered. His person had a sudden family emergency and wasn't sure when she would return home, so felt all the cats (4 of them, 1 already adopted) would be better at the shelter where we could find them a new home. Bandit was a little nervous at first, but he's way over that now. He is a sweet boy, loves to be petted and talked to. He gets along well with other cats and will make someone the purrfect lap time, nap time companion!
Carmen had her kittens under her rescuer's house, now kittens all have homes and Carmen is waiting for her new person to come pick her up today. She is a very sweet little cat, only about 1 year old and spayed. She is mostly white with cute little brown Tabby spots in all the right places. Carmen is very sociable, loves people and would love to meet you today. She's ready to go home when you say you're ready to take her!
Chester is the sweetest, most affectionate cat and if you know your yellow Tabby cats, you would know he fits that description to a "T"! He is 1-1/2 years old and neutered. Chester's person had a life change and became unable to care for him. He loves people and loves to be with them. He also gets along well with other cats. Chester would love to meet you and go home with you today!
Chet is the nicest boy, very affectionate and loving never meets a stranger and would love to meet you. He is the purrfect yellow Tabby boy cat - with all those yellow Tabby traits, super sweet and loves everybody. His person had a sudden life change and became unable to take care of him. He is 1-1/2 years old and neutered. Chet will make someone very happy, especially if you are looking for a lap cat and a cat to love :)
Colton and Noah
are 12 weeks old and neutered. They were taken in as tiny strays and taken very good care of until we had room. They are super sweet little boys that love people and love to play. Noah is the most shy, Colton not really shy at all. Noah has a more buff colored Tabby coat, and both really cute. They would love it if they could be adopted together! And you know, we always say - 2 kittens are better than 1!
Cricket is the sweetest, most affectionate little Tortoiseshell cat, ever! If you know your cats, you know that sometimes Tortoiseshell and/or Calico cats can have a bit of a "cattitude", but not Cricket! She loves everybody and loves to be with people, loves to be petted and held. She is 1 year old and spayed and pretty, too! Cricket showed up at the Cracker Barrel for breakfast one morning, but since she couldn't go in and set at a table, she was brought to us :)
Darren is such a nice boy, 3 years old and neutered. We think he may have gotten displaced from his home after all the floods. He showed up at a local convenience store that was located right next to all the flooding. Darren has a sore on his nose, either from working his way to safety or in the carrier he was delivered to us in - not sure. He is a wonderful cat, loves people and loves to be with them, also seems to get along well with other cats!
Fluffy and a couple of cat friends came to the shelter because their family had to move. She is still a little nervous and shy, but she's a pretty little cat with a soft medium length coat, mostly white with gray Tabby spots in all the right places. We think once you get Fluffy home, all that shyness will go away. She is a sweet girl that does like to be petted.
Friskie might have been friskie when she was young, but now she's a no-trouble-at-all cat, very well mannered, quiet, sweet and affectionate! Purrfect! Friskie is 4 years old and spayed. Her person had to move to the nursing home and no family to take her. Friskie is a pretty cat with that purrfect gray Tabby coat and lots of white underneath. She would love to meet you and go home with you today. Very sweet girl!
FuManChu is one handsome boy, wearing that little "fumanchu" :) He is 3 years old and neutered and we think there might be a little Turkish Van in his background - looking at his markings. His person had to move and couldn't take him along. FuManChu is very sweet and loves people. He loves to be petted and lots of lap time and nap time. He is a very quiet cat, no trouble at all and will make someone the purrfect furrever best friend. FuManChu would love to meet you and go home with you today!
Gizmo is a pretty little gray Tabby cat, 2 years old and spayed. She and a couple of cat friends came to the shelter because their family was moving. Gizmo is still a little shy, but does love to be petted. We think she will get over that shyness once you get her home. She is a sweet girl, just needs a little TLC and she has the cutest little face!
Itty Bit is 5 years old and spayed, a really pretty Tri-Color cat, but still a little shy :( She and her mom had to come to the shelter because their person became unable to care for them and no family. Itty is a beautiful cat and does like to be petted. We think once she gets to go home with you she will adjust and fit right in. She is a sweet girl, just needs a little TLC.
Jazz is a very handsome, shiny black cat that could see no point in getting up or showing off for the photo session! He is 3 years old and neutered, never meets a stranger, but never makes a big deal about it. He is a cool, calm, collected boy that minds his own business and expects the same from you :) Purrfect companion for the person that just wants a cat to lay around and get fat - dont' expect him to catch mice :)
Jefferson is one handsome boy and super, super sweet! He never meets a stranger and would love to meet you! His family had to move and couldn't take him with. Jefferson is 3 years old and neutered, ready to go home with you today. He is an American Shorthair mix with those cool swirls in his black/gray coat. There was no adjustment time for Jefferson, he moved right in and felt purrfectly at home. And, he seems to get along well with other cats!
Jose and his sister (now adopted) were born in their rescuer's basement who was able to keep mom. He is 6 months old and neutered. He is still very shy, but we think once you get him home that will all change. Jose is a very handsome brownish/gray Tabby cat with a super cute face. We think little Jose just needs a little TLC and maybe you are just the one to give it to him :)
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!
Mae is still a little shy, but already much more outgoing. She is a beautiful cat with very cool markings in her coat! She is 1 year old and spayed. Her family had to move and couldn't take her and sister (now adopted) along. Mae loves to be petted and she's okay to be picked up, just doesn't want a lot of it just yet. We think that will all change once you get her home, and she knows she has a permanent person and home.
Natasha is a very pretty Torbie cat, 1-1/2 years old and spayed. You know a Torbie is a mix of Tabby and Tortoiseshell! She and a friend came to the shelter because their person was having to move. Natasha is a little shy, but not bad, she does love to be petted, just not much on being piced up. She will be the purrfect best friend for someone that wants a cat, but not to be smothered by one. She would love to meet you today and talk about it!
Pepsi was a very shy cat at first, in fact we couldn't get a very good picture of her to post :( But not any more! Now, she is all hugs and kisses and a few swats when it suits her :) She is 3 years old and spayed, a Torbie cat, that's kind of a Calico/Tortoiseshell/Tabby cat. She has a really pretty Tabby coat with lots of cool colors and just the cutest face. Pepsi has put on a few lbs. since coming to the shelter and we think with a little more exercise in her new hom, she can drop those. She loves to play and she can have a little "cattitude", but still a very sweet girl!
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!
Pilgrim was not a happy "catter" when he first came to the shelter, but he has adjusted very nicely and pretty much has taken over! His person had to move to the nursing home and no family. Pilgrim loves to be petted and taken on over. He loves attention, especially at nap time, which he prefers to call lap time :) Pilgrim is a pretty big boy, coming in at 18 lbs. He is a very handsome Tuxedo cat and is ready to go home with you today. Pilgrim is 3 years old and neutered. Nice boy!
Prima is a 2 year old, spayed Russian Blue mix and spayed. Her family had to move so she and a couple of cat friends came to the shelter. Prima is very sweet and loves to be petted. She does have a little "cattitude" and when she's done being petted, she will let you know :) She is a small little cat, only about 8 lbs.! Purrfect! And she's really shiny :)
Rusty is the most handsome brown Tabby cat we have ever seen and his markings are simply gorgeous! He is 2 years old and neutered. His person became unable to care for him and no family. Rusty loves people and loves to be petted. He's still a tiny bit shy, being new to the shelter, but that's normal and we're pretty sure it won't last long. Rusty would love to meet you and go home with you today - he's more than ready!
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!
SilverPaws actually disappeared from this page - - and we're not actually sure how that happened! He is a most handsome 4 year old Domestic Longhair cat that does have a bit of "cattitude" which you don't usually see in Longhair cats or Male cats - but SilverPaws has it goin' on! He is very sweet and loves to be petted, just don't overdo and don't pick him up! Other than that, you're good :) And we have noticed he tends to like men better than women. He really is a sweet boy and we think once he gets into his very own home, he will be the love of your life!
Tiana is a beautiful black cat, 6 years old and spayed. Her person had to move and couldn't take her with. She loves to be petted and she will rub up against you, she's just not much on being picked up. She says I can jump up to anywhere "I" want to be, so why would you have to pick me up! Tiana does have a little "cattitude", but we just think it's because she knows how beautiful she is with those big gold eyes. Tiana also likes men better than women - so if one of you lucky guys out there is needing a new "lady cat" friend .............
Tom just looks a little cranky in this pic, but not in this one :) He is 4 years old and neutered, a very handsome silver Tabby cat that has a little bit of a skin issue, but already much better since we have him on a special diet - which isn't expensive! 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!!!
Zelena might have been shy for 1 whole day! She is 3 years old and spayed, ready to go home with you today. We just love her little black nose! Zelena's person passed and no family, so she and a few family members and friends came to the shelter. She is a very nice cat, no trouble at all, loves people and loves to be with them, but she won't be underfoot. Purrfect!
