UPDATE:  ADOPTED!!!!     

Hi, I’m Tina, and I’m kinda shy and I’ll take a little time to get used to you. You’ll find out I’m a gentle gal and I want to be petted and get scritches and play with you once I know you. I have gorgeous green eyes and sleek long hair in case you haven’t noticed! I’m on the skinny side so I’d like you to spoil me and fatten me up please. I’m all black but I’ve got these cute white tufts under my chin and behind my ears—I wasn’t cooperating when my foster mom tried to take photos, so you’ll just have to believe me! I’m about 5 months old and ready for the good life. I am at the Sierra Vista PetSmart adoption center right NOW waiting to meet you!

UPDATE:  ADOPTED!!!!

Hi, I’m Gizelle and I’m a gorgeous tortie gal, about 8 months old. I’m pretty shy and you’ll see that I have a bit of a head tilt. Doc tells me this is just fine, it’s just the way I am, we’re not sure why. I ask that you be patient and calm with me and let me get to know you, as I’m kinda wary at first. I do love to play once I’m relaxed, and I get along well with my cat-mates. Dogs I’m not too sure about, I haven’t met many yet. Contact: 765-918-6835. 





Hi, I'm Melanie. I’m a sleek and beautiful young lady, about 1 year old. I was found on the side of the road with my two kittens (who have been adopted into their forever homes), and I have mothered other wee ones who were orphaned and needed my care. I get along with other cats, and love to be loved. I’m very social, and even though I’m not always in the mood to be a lap cat, I really like to have your attention! And I run around and play like a kitten cuz I still feel like one! I especially can’t resist those dangly string toy thingies….. I am at the Sierra Vista PetSmart adoption center right NOW waiting to meet you!



Hi, I'm Zeus. I am one big and handsome and magnificent feline! I'm a pretty laid back guy, but boy do I like to play and run around when you tempt me with those great toys! I prefer to be the only cat--since I am a god, after all--but I do love humans. Dogs, not too sure, I haven't met many. I make a great companion and love to cuddle. I had a rough start and am looking for love. I'm about 3 years old, neutered, up to date on shots, and I even had a recent dental. Contact: 765-918-6853. I am at the Sierra Vista PetSmart adoption center right NOW waiting to meet you!


Zeppo is a fun, playful, and handsome boy who can entertain himself with just about anything he can bat around the room. He is a little mischief maker, you can see it in his eyes, he loves to pounce on his toys and his feline friends. He is a little bit shy but is curious and loves to be petted. He gets along well with other cats; unknown with dogs and children, though he would do better with older children. He is about 6 months old, neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped. He is ready for new adventures! Contact: 202-210-5409. 



Meet Nigel but we all call him Monk. He is a sweet, affectionate guy who LOVES to get his cuddles during the evening hours...he has been known to be quite relentless when trying to secure some undivided attention from his people. He came into foster care quite unsocialized and spend his first three weeks hiding and hissing...now he is just the epitome of a social butterfly. He participates in a pet therapy program once a week visiting with folks in assisted living facilities and when at home he is either napping or zooming about with the other cats and little dog who he shares our home with. He is pure black...even the pads on his feet are black and he has stunning copper eyes. He is about 6 months old. He also lives with a husky mix dog but he is far less of a fan of our larger dog. He tolerates her being around but does not engage her in play. Contact: 765-918-6835.


Orlean is a very special kittie looking for the perfect adopter. When he was rescued, he couldn't even stand up and we thought he might have neurological problems, since an xray showed no injuries. But with lots of love and good nutrition and encouragement, he showed that anything is possible and now at 6 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 stiff, 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 will follow you anywhere at mealtime! Contact 202-210-5409. 



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. Contact: 765-918-6853. 



Reeses is a playful girl who takes a little bit to warm up to you, then once she does, she is your best friend. She is extremely interested in all things critter—flies, bugs, fish…... She loves to sit and watch the fish from all angles of the tank including the top! Reeses is about 5 months old, and used to living with young children and small dogs, though she’s not sure yet how much she likes the dogs. Contact: 765-918-6835. 





Snickers is a very talkative girl who wants to tell you alllllll about it! She is very friendly and not shy, and in fact she is the only one of her siblings (York, Mars, and Reeses) that really does well with the small dogs in her foster home. She is used to being around children also. She is about 5 months old. Contact: 765-918-6835. 





My name is Hocus and I am about 4 months old. My brother, Pocus, and I are rescues from a hoarding situation in St. David. I am the love bug of the two of us but enjoy playing chase with him throughout foster mom’s house. I also love playing with little mouse toys. I am very shy at first because of where I came from, but once I warm up to you, I become a clown and will seek you out for attention and affection. I am comfortable around other cats and even some dogs. I enjoy dry and wet kitten food. I am also proficient in the use of the litter box. My foster home has several other cats and dogs, so I am well socialized. Contact: 765-918-6835. 




My name is Pocus. My brother, Hocus, and I are about 4 months old and were rescued from a hoarding situation in St. David. I am the shyer, more reserved one, but will play chase with him occasionally. My perfect day is just finding a nice, quiet spot to watch the world go by, only pausing to eat dry and wet kitten food and take a nap. I am also a master of using the litter box. I have been socialized to many other cats and a couple of drooly dogs. My brother and I are not a bonded pair, but I would probably be more comfortable and warm-up a little faster if he went with me. Contact: 765-918-6835. 





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 Simone and I’m a gentle little sweetie pie. When you pick me up, it seems like I’m curling into a ball because my spine has a funny curvature to it. Who knows why, but doc says I’m fine. I also have a bit of a limp in my back leg, but it doesn’t stop me from running around and chasing toys, believe me! I’m a bit of a shy girl but once you start loving on me, I’ll love you back. I’m about 4 months old and ready to be spoiled, please. Contact: 765-918-6835.  



Available for Preadoption: My name is Jasmine and no one is sure of my age, but I think that I am around 2 years old. My kittens and I were rescued on the edge of Fort Huachuca after the fire. I am very loving and very vocal. Besides my own litter of six kittens, I am also a surrogate mom to three other little ones that were found wandering alone. I will be available for adoption in about a month, after all my babies are weaned and I get spayed. I am being socialized to other cats and kittens, as well as two dogs (which I currently do not care for, but that is because I am protecting my babies). I like treats and canned cat food, and am litter box trained. Contact 765-918-6853.  




I’m Travis, and ok I just have to admit that I know I’m a heart-stealer. I mean, have you seen these green eyes of mine? And my long, soft fur? I will captivate you as soon as you see me. And I’m also super nice and friendly and fun. I’m about 9 months old, I get along with other cats, and I’m ready to come home with you and be your loving companion. Contact: 765-918-6835.
