Paris Hollywood Lettie
Lila Zucko Alison
Maro Mattea Kane Sandy
Stop by for a visit - we would all love to meet you!
Anastasia is a beautiful little Tortoiseshell kitten, 4 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!!!
Alison is a pretty little Torbie kitten, and spayed. She and brother (now adopted) were left in a box at our gate. She is a sweet little kitten, very friendly and outgoing. She doesn't seem to be a real rambunctious kitten, just very sweet and affectionate. She loves people and loves to be with them. Alison has the prettiest coat of many colors! She would love to meet you and go home with you today!
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 :)
Bart Bogart Mozart
as you will notice - all 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 are a bit :( Bogart is also getting much better and likes a little petting. Bart seems to be warming up, too and you can actually pick him up if you are quick :) Mozart may not come around at all and would make someone a nice barn cat once he's a little older, maybe take Bogart along, too, to keep him company! They are 6 months old and neutered, ready to have a new life!
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!
Eclipse & Magic
are the two cutest little black kittens and so, so sweet and affectionate. They are 4 months old and spayed, were fostered a while so they have lots of social skills. They never meet a stranger and are always ready for lots of love and affection. They each have their own individual little personalities, but you won't be able to resist - we're sure!
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!
George has the biggest eyes, the better to see you with :) He is a super sweet and affectionate boy. You can never pet him too much and he keeps coming back for more. George is 6 years old and neutered, a very handsome brown Tabby cat with big green eyes! His person had a life change and left George and friend with a neighbor who was unable to keep them. George would love to meet you and go home with you today. He is a super, super nice boy!
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!
are 4 months old and spayed. They were taken in as strays and taken very good care of until we had room. Hollywood and Nevada are scheduled for spay on September 28, ready for your pick up on September 30. Paris made it on the bus for the last s/n trip so she is ready for pick up today. Thy are very sweet and affectionate, not a shy one among them and what a nice variety! Hollywood the gray Tabby with lots of white underneath, Nevada mostly white with a black overcoat and that cute black spot on her nose and chin and Paris seems to have that Colorpoint Shorthair look!
Hunny is a beautiful gray Tabby cat with a very sweet personality. She was taken in just in time to have her kittens under her rescuer's tool bench. They were all taken very good care of until the kittens were old enough to come to the shelter. Hunny is about 2 years old and spayed. She loves to be petted and loves people. We think she will make someone that purrfect best friend and she's ready to go home with you today.
Jasmine is a beautiful kitten, 3 months old and spayed. She has a super soft silver Tabby coat with lots of white and the cutest little pink nose. Jasmine was found as a single tiny stray and taken very good care of until she was old enough to come to the shelter. Now, she would love to meet her new furrever person and go home today. She is just as sweet as she is beautiful and she's ready!
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 :)
Kai is the cutest little kitten and so very sweet! He is 3 months old and neutered, a little silver Tabby with lots of white underneath and the cutest face. Kai was brought to the shelter when he was only about 5 weeks old. He was eating good on his own, but he wouldn't eat anything with a little canned milk first :) He had to have his mile every day up until about 2 weeks ago! And of course, we spoiled him as long with that as we needed to :)
Kane is just the cutest little kitten, mostly white with a gray Tabby back and a cute brown nose. He is 3 months old and neutered. Kane and siblings came to the shelter when they were tiny, but now he's ready to go home with you today. He is very playful, loves people and is not a bit shy. He will make someone the purrfect little best friend, furrever!
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!
Lettie Lilith Lila
are, of course, Lyra's (just below) kittens who were all left in a box at our gate one morning. They are now 12 weeks old, Lilith is spayed, Lettie & Lila didn't make it on the last s/n bus, but are scheduled for spay on October 12, so they will be available for pick up on October 14. This little trio is very playful, very sweet, not a bit shy and will be ready to go on the 14th, so make your plans and get ready.
Lucy is a really pretty, very sweet little yellow Tabby cat, about 1-1/2 years old and spayed. Her person took her in, not realizing that Lucy does not like dogs, so she brought her to us. But that is good to know and now, Lucy would love to go home with her new person, but please don't have a dog, or she just won't go :) She is very sweet and loves people, loves to be petted and played with. She will make someone the purrfect best friend and she's ready to go home with you toda - if you don't have a dog!
Lyra is a beautiful black cat with huge goldish green eyes. She was left in a box at our gate with 3 tiny kittens (not available yet). She is a very sweet cat, loves to be petted and loves people. She's truly a no-trouble-at-all cat and won't be in your way. She's 6 years old and spayed, a very mature lady that knows how to act :) She would love to meet you and go home with you today. She is a very sweet girl!
Mandy is a really pretty black and white cat with huge gold eyes. She was a little shy in the beginning, but not so much now. She is very sweet and loves to be petted. Mandy was taken in with her tiny kittens which all found new homes, but her rescuer was unable to keep her. Mandy is about 1 year old and spayed, ready to go home with you today. Very sweet girl!
Maro was just sure he could jump up on that scratching post :) Oh well! He is 4 months old and neutered. Maro is a most handsome yellow Tabby kitten, very playful and very friend. He and Rex are now best friends and would make the purrfect pair to adopt together. Maro never meets a stranger and he's always ready for the next game of chase, roll and tumble!
Mattea is still available from the kittens Sunday (now adopted) was taking care of. She has the sweetest little personality and cutest little face! Mattea is 4 months old and spayed. She is very playful kittens, loves people and is not a bit shy! She also gets along very well with all the other kittens in Connie's Cat House. Come meet Mattea, we think you will love her instantly!

He is a very sweet boy, loves people and loves to be with them. He's a playful, curious kitten that never meets a stranger and he also gets along well with all the other cats and kittens. You will love this little boy the minute you meet him!
Michael is such a fun kitten, 12 weeks old and neutered, super playful, super sweet and loves everybody. He, brother (now adopted) an older sister and mom were left in a carrier at the neighbors house. He never meets a stranger and gets along really well with all the other kittens. Michael would love to meet you and go home with you today, maybe with another friend, as well!
Hunny 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!
Sandy is 5 months old and neutered, the sweetest more of a buff colored Tabby kitten. Sandy was found at a campground, starving and ready to get out of there. His rescuer finally caught him and brought him to the shelter. Sandy is very sweet, loves people and loves to be with them. He was lonesome at first, so we introduced him to Zucko and they are the best friends ever. This would be the purrfect pair to adopt together!
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!
Shelby is still available - there was a little mix up in the adoption event and both sisters got adopted, but Shelby didn't get the chance to go to PetSmart that week, but she's ready to go home with you today. She is a beautiful kitten, 5 months old and spayed. Shelby might have a little Siamese mix or even Turkish Van mix with beautiful blue eyes, and little black caps on her ears :) She loves people and loves to be with them. She loves to play and gets along well with the other kittens!
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!!!
Treasure has a sister named Fern and this little pair are super cute and suepr sweet. 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!!!
Tyler is the most handsome boy, 2 years old and neutered. His person became unable to care for him and no family. Tyler never meets a stranger. He's very friendly and outgoing, very sweet, but not a needy cat. Just likes to be petted when you are ready to pet him. He loves people and loves to be with them. He is truly a no-trouble-at-all cat and he's ready to go home with you today!
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!
Zucko is such a nice boy, 5 months old and neutered. He was found as a single stray, but didn't like being by himself, so we introduced him to Sandy and they have become best friends. Nothing more sweeter than 2 male yellow Tabby kittens. Zucko has a very sweet personality, never meets a stranger and would love to meet you and go home with you today - hopefully with his new best friend, Sandy!
