What a serene and elegant beauty! Madelena is a mostly white calico with unique markings; she has a few orange calico spots on her head and back, and a dark striped tail. Madelena is a calm and quiet kitty who is very sweet and open to affection; she melts right into you when you hold her. This gentle and peaceful girl would love to come curl up happily in your home. Come meet her soon! DOB 2010

Happy Tails: Felix

Felix is doing very well. We renamed him Oberon but for now we call him Obi because Oberon is a big name for such a little kitty.
Here are some photos of him. He forgets to put his tongue away a lot. :)

Kittens of the Week: Jack and Angelica

Jack and Angelica are two of the sweetest, most loving little kittens you'll ever meet. Favorite things include each other, people hugs, purring, and running around the room on little toothpick legs.

This brother and sister pair are adorable; both of them are mostly white with grey markings. Angelica loves to be held. Jack does too, but he's a little more independent. They are regular domestic house cats, but they have short, soft hair and big ears, characteristics of the Cornish Rex breed, which give them an interesting, exotic look. They were hungry and scrawny when they arrived, but they are getting cuter everyday. Sweet sweet kitties. DOB May 2011.

There are over 25 kittens available from the Goathouse right now. A few of them are in foster homes but most are at the Refuge; you can meet them all on the website kitten page. Tell your friends, tell your family, please help us get these babies into loving homes. And come visit us soon for complete Kitten Immersion in the Kitten Cabana!

Cat of the Week: Commander

Commander is a nice guy! He's a dark orange tabby fellow with golden eyes and a sweet disposition. He enjoys napping and lounging but is always more than happy to accept affectionate petting from a passing human hand! About his name - we don't know the story, but it's a funny name for such a mild-mannered cat. Commander would love to be your best kitty friend. Come meet this little buddy soon.
