Look who wants a forever home!:




Hi, I’m Cash, and I should be cool, since I’m named after Johnny, but really I’m just a goofy kid. I get into contests with my sister June to see who is better at chasing our own tails. I love to get petted and I’m always purring and purring and playing and playing! My foster human calls me Bright Eyes cuz my big gold eyes always look surprised. I have grown up with Rosa, June, and Folsom, and hope I can be adopted together with one of them. I’m about 4 months old, spayed, up to date on shots, and microchipped. To meet me and my siblings, please call my foster home at 202-210-5409.


Hi, I’m Folsom, and I’m a pretty sleek and handsome guy if I do say so myself. (Cash is my twin, but I’m more debonair, right?) I like to pretend to be cool, but if I see a string toy or catnip mouse, look out, I am a wild and crazy guy who just wants to have fun. I’m a little shy around new humans, but I’m always won over by some good scritches and a nice lap. I have grown up with Rosa, June, and Cash, and hope I can be adopted together with one of them. I’m about 4 months old, spayed, up to date on shots, FIV/FeLv tested, and microchipped. To meet me and my siblings, please call my foster home at 202-210-5409.



Hi, I’m June, and I’m a real sweetie pie of a kitten. I have a gentle soul and love to get petted and take naps on my human’s chest. I also love to wrestle and run around like crazy with my kitten-mates. My best talent is chasing my own tail, and it sure makes my human laugh a lot. I have grown up with Rosa, Cash, and Folsom, and hope I can be adopted together with one of them. I’m about 4 months old, spayed, up to date on shots, and microchipped. To meet me and my siblings, please call my foster home at 202-210-5409.


Hi, I’m Rosa, and I’m a little purring and playing machine! I love to be petted and get cuddles when I’m not dashing around chasing all my fun toys. I love to play hide-and-seek-and-pounce with my foster human because it makes her laugh so much. And I love to show my adorable spotted belly for some belly rubs. I have grown up with Cash, June, and Folsom, and hope I can be adopted together with one of them. I’m about 4 months old, spayed, up to date on shots, FIV/FeLv tested, and microchipped. To meet me and my BFFS, please call my foster home at 202-210-5409.

Cuddles is a 1.5 year old orange/white shorthair American neutered cat. He is chipped and has his shots. He was found as a stray but is very friendly. He gets along with other cats but is respectful with dogs. He is a very loving boy. If you show affection to other cats he will come right away and demands to be shown affection as well. He does not like to be picked up but comes to you when you sit on the bed and call him. He uses the litter box and he loves to sleep in an enclosure such as a larger carrier. He will greet you when you walk into the room and let’s you know when it is time for food. He loves the Friskies soft food and the Taste of the Wild grain free dry food. He also eats other dry food such as the Purina dry food.

Ginger is about 3 yrs. old, a unique and unusually beautiful calico/tortoiseshell spayed female who is friendly and affectionate. She was abandoned by someone who moved away and taken in by a neighbor. She is very affectionate, and loves to greet you while purring and rubbing against your legs, though cuddling may not be her "thing" (yet). Her best friend is Austin, who is also up for adoption.  She will adjust to other cats, and is unknown with dogs and children. She is vaccinated, FIV/FELV-tested, microchipped, & litter-box-trained. Contact Kerry at (520) 227-4735.


Austin is about 7 yrs. old, an orange-tabby-&-white neutered male who is very friendly. He purrs when you pet him and loves attention. He is tolerant of some other cats, unknown with dogs & children. His best friend is Ginger, who is also up for adoption.  


Austin cannot eat fish because he has feline herpes and fish causes him to break out in a rash, but he is unaffected in any other way. He is vaccinated, FIV/FELV-tested, microchipped, & litter-box-trained. Contact Kerry at (520) 227-4735.




Daisy is a special tabby lady who is being fostered along with her sister, Marigold. Daisy has a pretty, unique smile due to some crooked teeth. She loves to play with string teaser toys and she is an aerial artist! She can jump very high, performing twists and flips to catch the feather on the string. She likes very gentle pets and sometimes gets edgy and will gently nip you if you aren’t petting her the way she likes. For this reason, she should probably go to a home with adults and older children. She and her sister, Marigold, love each other and love their foster mom, following her wherever she goes in the house. They both love running water and enjoy a drink and a chance to play in the bathroom sink. Contact: 202-210-5409



Marigold is a stunning tabby lady who is being fostered along with her sister, Daisy. Marigold is a bit shyer with people than her sister and took a few days longer to warm up to her foster mom. However, she really went all in when she decided to let her new mom love her. She has a beautiful, deep, melodic meow and enjoys having conversations with her foster mom. She and her sister, Daisy, love each other and love their foster mom, following her wherever she goes in the house. They both love running water and enjoy a drink and a chance to play in the bathroom sink. Though shyer than her sister, don’t be fooled, Marigold is the queen of the cats, and Daisy follows her lead. Contact: 202-210-5409



My name is Stefano and I am about 14 months old. I love playing with toys, getting the zoomies, and soaking up some sun, but mostly I love being by your side and getting lots of loving! I have been around many other cats and a couple of dogs as well as a young lady human. I enjoy wet food, especially Friskies, dry food, Rachel Ray’s Nutrish Indoor, and of course treats, Temptations. I am used to Tidy Cat Multi-Cat litter as well. My favorite toys are jingle balls, crinkle toys, springs, and boxes of all sizes. I am 100% snuggler and cuddler and am looking for my furever home. Could it be you?



My name is Yin, but sometimes my foster mom calls me Yinifer. I am less than a year old and came from a hoarding situation in St. David. I am the sole survivor of my litter and have had a tough time getting healthy and strong enough to be adopted. I love to play with toys, hide in boxes, and wrestle with my foster siblings. I also enjoy my quiet time and personal space. I am not big on being held, but do enjoy getting loved on. I will probably be very shy at first, but food always helps me come out of my shell! My favorite foods are Friskies and Fancy Feast Seafood flavors, Rachel Ray Nutrish Indoor dry food, and Temptations treats. Foster mom puts Tidy Cat litter in my box and I like it. I know that I will miss my foster mom and siblings, but I know that it is time I spread my paws and soar and the strong, independent cat that I am meant to be!


My name is Thomas. My sister, Geri, and I are both under a year old. I really hate cameras and as you can tell by the look on my face. I am none too happy that my foster human was taking one of me. I have four white socks that my foster mom says makes me a proper gentleman! My sister and I were born in an abandoned car in Golden Acres. When we first came into care, I did not want to be touched or held and ran from my foster mom. I am still very shy, but do like to be loved on at my discretion. My sister and I are a bonded pair, so we are looking for a home big enough for both of us. We both get zoomies and enjoy wrestling with each other. Our favorite foods are Friskies wet food, Rachel Ray Nutrish Indoor, and Temptations treats. We also use Tidy Cats Multi-Cat Litter. Can we come home with you?

My name is Geri, and please do not judge me by this picture. I really hate cameras and as you can tell by the look on my face. I am none too happy that my foster human was taking one of me. The camera put on more pounds than I have lives! I am a very sweet girl, along with my brother, Thomas, that were born in an abandoned car in Golden Acres. When we first came into care, I did not want to be touched or held and ran from my foster mom. I am still very shy, but do like to be loved on at my discretion. My brother and I are a bonded pair, so we are looking for a home big enough for both of us. We both get zoomies and enjoy wrestling with each other. Our favorite foods are Friskies wet food, Rachel Ray Nutrish Indoor, and Temptations treats. We also use Tidy Cats Multi-Cat Litter.


My name is Ruby and I am about two years old. When I came into my Foster mom’s care, I did not play, like to be touched, or picked up. Now I LOVE to play and run zoomies around the room. I also enjoy getting pets, but am still not completely crazy about being held. I am a VERY deep sleeper and get easily startled if I am touched while sleeping so now my foster mom always says my name before she touched me when I am napping. I like playing with jingle balls, springs, and crinkle toys that I can get my pack paws into. I am used to using Tidy Cats litter in my box for my potty needs. For meals, I like Friskies wet food, Rachel Ray Nutrish Indoor dry food, and Temptations treats. Even though I have been socialized with many other cats, I think I would do best as an only cat as I will probably be shy at first anyways. Do you have room in your heart and life for me? I hope so!


My name is Picara and I am less than a year old. I was found on the streets of Sierra Vista as a very small and frightened kitten. I was so scared that my foster mom named me Picara because it means sassy. I can still be pretty sassy, but have calmed down quite a bit and actually have learned to enjoy getting loved on. I also love doing zoomies with my foster siblings, playing with all kinds of toys, taking siestas during the heat of the day, and of course eating! My favorites are Friskies wet food, Rachel Ray Nutrish Indoor dry food, and Temptations treats. I prefer to use Tidy Cats litter for my potty needs. I have been socialized with a variety of cats and a couple of dogs, but am not certain of small humans yet. Could you possibly be my furever family?


My name is Mojo, or Mojito. I am a Domestic Short Hair Calico (female) and am less than a year old. I have beautiful golden eyes and a very playful spirit. As a kitten, I loved to hide in very small spaces so that my foster mom couldn’t find me. She called me Mojo because it was like magic that I could fit in such places. I can’t fit in them anymore. I love to run zoomies and wrestle with my foster siblings and play with all the toys in our room. I also love to lay in the sun and hide in boxes to jump out and surprise my foster mom. My favorite meals are Friskies wet food, Rachel Ray Nutrish dry food, and Temptations treats. I also use Tidy Cats litter in my box. I am very affectionate and would love to become a member of a family!



My name is Max and I am about 2 years old. My foster mom thinks I am the result of a love match between a cat and a bush baby because I have such large round eyes that I always look surprised. I am very quiet and laid back and prefer to find a secluded place to curl up for a nap. At first I did not like to be held or touched and would run and hide when foster mom approached. I have since learned to trust, but will probably still be shy at first. My favorite thing is first thing in the morning when breakfast is being served, I get a loving scritch on my head and a gentle “good morning, handsome” from foster mom. I have not discovered toys as of yet even though there are tons of them here. I like Friskies wet food, Rachel Ray Nutrish Indoor dry food, and Temptations treats. I am also used to Tidy Cats litter. I would love to find my furever home, but think I would do best in one that is quiet without small children for now.



The name is Bond, James Bond, and I am less than a year old. I was found wandering on a farm in Hereford all by myself when I was about 4 weeks old. I have a distinctive kink in the end of my tail that just adds to my character. I love to hunt bugs, moths, and flies as well as play with all kinds of toys and hide from villains in boxes. In order to keep my energy up to rid the world of evilness, I prefer to dine on Friskies wet food (not pate please), Rachel Ray Nutrish dry food, and Temptations treats. For my privy, please provide Tidy Cats litter. I also take my water, shaken, not stirred.



Hi! My name is Betty Boop and I am less than a year old. I am a Domestic Medium Hair Diluted Tortoiseshell and am very vocal, especially at mealtime. I consider myself a diva and will allow you a few pets, but am not very fond of being held. Please do not take it personally, but I do have some trauma in my past. I go crazy for Fancy Feast Seafood Pate and enjoy the occasional Rachel Ray Nutrish Indoor dry food. I am not big on playing with toys and prefer soaking up some sun in a window and allowing the world to bask in my beauty.


My name is Ollie. I am approximately 14 months old. I am happiest curled up somewhere in the sun, but also enjoy getting pets throughout the day. My favorite thing to do is to be your personal food quality control person. I insist on ensuring whatever you are eating is of the best quality! Personally, I prefer canned Friskies, Rachel Ray Nutrish Indoor dry food, and Temptations treats. I am used to using Tidy Cats litter for my potty needs. I am not a huge toy cat, but will play with jingle balls and springs, and of course boxes as forts. Is it possible that you are my furever home family?

Available for pre-adoption. Douglas is a male black/white tabby approximately 10-12 weeks old. Douglas had a really questionable start in life. At 7-8 weeks old he weighed only 1 pound 1 ounce.

These furbabies have recently been adopted!:




Update:  Adopted, June 2022!

Sir Lancelot is a 1-yr.-old gray-&-black long-haired neutered male cat who is especially friendly & gentle. He is very loving & will lick your hand. He has had a rough life, as he came from a horrible hoarding situation, but it has not stopped him from being a wonderful boy. He is good with other cats and unknown with dogs & children, but judging from his mellow personality, he probably would do fine with them. He is vaccinated, FIV/FELV-tested, microchipped, & litter-box-trained.

Update:  Adopted with sister, Cotton, June 2022

Cashmere was abandoned with her twin sister, Cotton, when she was quite young…her former owner just packed up her home but left all the fur-babies behind to fend for themselves. She has been in Foster care for the past several months and while still a bit shy, can be held and pet but doesn’t like an iron grip restraining her. Cashmere isn’t exactly a fan of being brushed but will allow it if you are persistent and patient. She loves treats, especially DELECTABLE SQUEEZE UPS and Friskys Party time original…these gals will need a patient home with someone who will give her time to adjust but will encourage her to come out of hiding ( treats and play work like magic). Of the two, her sister, Cotton is just a bit braver, more inquisitive and is faster to accept change. Cashmere has overcome so much in her short life and is now ready to move into her furever home.


Update:  Adopted with sister, Cashmere, June 2022

Cotton was abandoned with her twin sister, Cashmere, when she was quite young…her former owner just packed up her home but left all the fur-babies behind to fend for themselves. She has been in Foster care for the past several months and while still a bit shy, but is happy to be cradled in reassuring arms or on a comforting lap, she doesn’t mind getting brushed, her sister Cashmere isn’t exactly fan but will allow it if you are persistent and patient. She loves treats, especially DELECTABLE SQUEEZE UPS and Friskys Party time original…they will need a patient home who will give her time to adjust but will encourage her to come out of hiding ( treats and play work like magic). Of the two, Cotton is just a bit braver, more inquisitive and is faster to accept change. You can tell her apart from her sister, Cashmere, by the little dark fleck on the side of her nose. Cotton has overcome so much in her short life and is now ready to move into her furever home.
