Kittens of the Week

Meet Ashe, Logan, Rusty, Joey, and Chiclet!

These five adorable male kittens are living in a foster home but are available for adoption through the Goathouse Refuge. If you would like to meet any/all of these babies, please call or email the Goathouse office, and their foster mom will arrange a time to bring them to the Goathouse. DOB June 2011.

Ashe and Logan
These tuxedo brothers "sing" for their supper. Where the other kitties meow when they want something, Logan and Ashe have a very extended meow that sounds a bit like an aria. They are nearly mirror images of each other and do everything together, including sleep, and they must be adopted together.

The short-haired orange tabby is named Rusty. He's a sweetheart.

Joey is a fluffy angora orange tabby who is very sweet and playful, and the most laid back of the bunch.

The mostly white and orange tabby is named Chiclet. He is the comical one.

Happy Tails: Nicodemus, Snappy, and Miro

We love Happy Tails! Here's a report from the family who adopted Nicodemus, Snappy, and Miro.

"I adopted Nicodemus and two kittens on Labor Day weekend and want to let you know that all three of them are doing really well. We changed Miro's name to Saavik, but Snappy is still Snappy and happy. The kittens are best of friends! They often sleep together, eat together, and play together. Saavik often bring out the kitten in Niko with some play wrestling and running around the house; the "old boy" seems to enjoy it.

Nikodemus enjoys sitting on the couch and hanging out on the deck with me. He also likes to snuggle next to my legs in bed, though not every night, and has started to hop into my lap as well as my daughter's. The three kitties bring lots of joy to my household. My kids and I really love them and I already can't imagine life without them--nor do I want to."

Cat of the Week: Dixie

Meet Dixie, a lovable girl with a white chest and mittens, and thick calico fur the color of autumn leaves. She's such a sweet kitty with a shy, gentle personality. She's not the kind of cat who comes running up and jumps in your lap, but when you approach her, she's happy to see you, and grateful for the petting and attention. Dixie has been at the refuge since 2008, patiently waiting for her person to come. She will make someone a great little friend - maybe that someone could be you?

Happy Tails: Gracie and Chris Jr.

A nice note from the family who adopted Gracie and Chris Jr.~

"These are pictures of former Goathouse kitties Gracie and Alfred (formerly known as Chris, Jr. -- honest, he picked the name himself! I called him King Alfred the first night he was home with me in May, and it was the first time he came to me & fell asleep immediately in my lap).

Alfred and Gracie are both just wonderful, hilarious, loving, fun kitties to live with. My older cat, Wick, loves them both too. They make me happy every day, and I try hard to return the favor. Hope you enjoy these, please share as you like!"

Cat of the Week: Sassy

Sassy is adorable. She's a bright-eyed and sprightly little girl with fabulous grey and white tuxedo markings. An adult cat who is so tiny that she looks more like a kitten, Sassy can be a little bit shy at first, but once you make friends with her, you'll see that she's a gentle and loving girl who enjoys eating treats from your hand and being petted. She's been at the refuge for over a year now and would love to have a home of her very own. Please come meet Sassy soon!
