Orlean is a very special kittie looking for the perfect adopter. When he was rescued, he couldn't stand up and we thought he might have permanent neurological problems, since an xray showed no injuries. We weren’t sure if he would be able to walk, but with lots of love and good nutrition and encouragement, he slowly healed and now at 5 months old, he is just like any normal kitten. He runs all over the place and jumps and climbs right up to the top of the cat tower. His back legs are a little weak and wobbly sometimes, but that doesn’t stop him for one single minute. He is constantly playing and loves to wrestle with his kitten and cat pals. He is a big star in his foster household! Orlean doesn’t really like to be picked up and is wary of strangers, but he loves to be petted and he will follow you anywhere when it’s mealtime! He is neutered and up to date on shots. Contact 202-210-5409. Starting Weds,10/13, Orlean will be at the Sierra Vista PetSmart adoption center waiting to meet you! Go meet this special boy.
Thistle is definitely misnamed! His name should have been Missile. He’s a very active 3- to 4-month-old male. He’s not only active, he’s super sweet and loving. All you have to do is look at him and he’ll start purring! He is up to date with vaccinations, neutered, and microchipped. He is friendly with both kittens and adult cats, small dogs, and children. For more information or to meet Thistle, call his foster mom Dori (520-458-2997).
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: 765-918-6853.
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.

Bernie is a sweet older adult taken from a tragic home because his human was no longer able to care for him and her other furry-ones. It is clearly evident by his personality that he was well loved. He is an AMAZING beast who thrives on human affection. He is happy to sit and get lovins. If you stop giving him scritches before he is ready, he will pull your hand or arm with his paw to re-engage you. He hates to be separated from his humans and may yowl loudly to express his displeasure which immediately stops once he rejoins his clan. If you are seeking a companion, he is your guy. Contact 765-918-6853.
Meet Butters. Epitome of companion. Utterly unfazed by our dogs. Big handsome guy. Cuddles close for lovins, sleeps at night on the foot of the bed or sometimes the dining room chair. Happily will spend hours snuggled up close and will nudge his human with his paw to say he’s ready for pets to begin! Butters is about 5 years old, neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped. Contact: 765-918-6853.
Meet Cookie, a beautiful, shy, brown/orange/tan tabby girl. She is quite the chatter box who regularly has exchanges with the patriarch of our family. She is very curious and wants to meet you on her own calm and cautious terms! She feels at ease in her kennel and has no complaints to getting her lovins from the top perch of the kennel. She is happy to explore when most of our active household is either sleeping or running errands outside of the home. She is completely unaffected by the house all abuzz as long as she can watch from a place where she feels secure. Cookie is about 2 years old, spayed, and up to date on shots. Contact 765-918-6853.
Hi, I'm Melanie. I am a sweetheart, kind and gentle. I was found on the side of the road with my two kittens (who are almost ready for adoption too), and I have mothered several others who were orphaned and needed my care. I’m a sleek and beautiful young lady, about 1 year old, I get along with other cats, and just want to be loved. I like wet food (naturally!) and like to run around and play. I am spayed and up to date on shots. Contact: 765-918-6853.
I am a quiet, laid back, and sweet cat. I prefer to be the only cat, as I am a god, but I do love humans. Dogs, not too sure. I make a great companion and love to cuddle. I had a rough start and am looking for love. I love wet food. I am about 3 years old, neutered, and up to date on shots. Contact: 765-918-6853.
Sedona Stix is my name. Playing hard, lounging around, getting treats and tons of lovins is my game. I was found orphaned when I was just a couple days old so I’m what they call a bottle baby. I have spent my days living in a home with 7 other wee ones, 7 adult cats, and two dogs, one large and one smaller than me. I did weekly visits to assisted living homes visiting for an hour with the kind residents who can no longer have furbabes of their own so I am used to being handled and LOVE the attention. After a visit there or a busy playtime I just love to snuggle up by my human and nap for a couple hours. I don’t know if you noticed in my photo but my foster momma says I’m a special fella…I have thumbs…they say it’s called being polydactyl. Polydactyl cats are also called “Hemingway Cats.” Hemingway cats, mitten cats, or whatever we are called, are stunning creatures. Want to see one up close and purrsonal? Well, if ya do, all you need to do is ask to meet me, but I warn you now, once you meet me your heart will be mine!!! PS I was a bit younger in these pics, I'm about 5 months old now!

Hi, I'm Rodrigo. I come from a very large family, 5 brothers and 1 sister. Stefano, Ricardo, and Ollie are my brothers. I am long and lean, and a playing machine! Climbing to new heights, chasing away problems, wrestling with crinkly things, and playing with all kinds of toys are the best ways to spend the day. I am an explorer so I will be delving into all the spaces in my new home. I started my life being very shy, so I may need a little extra time and patience to warm up to my new family, but I will definitely come around because I have found that I love cuddles, kisses and pets! I have been socialized with many other cats of varying ages, as well as two very large and dimwitted dogs. As far as tiny tykes go, I don’t know because I haven’t been around any in my short life, but I much prefer to be handled gently and with love. Contact 765-918-6853.
Hi, I'm Ricardo. I come from a very large family, 5 brothers and 1 sister. Stefano, Rodrigo, and Ollie are my brothers. I am a laid back, fluffy cat that likes to chill out in a sunny spot, but will play when it suits me. I find bugs fascinating and fun to bat around. I am still kind of shy so please give me a little extra time to warm up to my new life. Once I do, I may act aloof to pets, scritches and kisses, but secretly I do enjoy them. I have been socialized with many other cats of various ages, as well as two very large and ridiculous dogs. As far as small humans go, I don’t know because I haven’t been around any in my short life, but I do prefer to be handled gently and with love. Contact 765-918-6853.
