Cat of the Week: Boudacia

Boudacia is a lovely young tabby who arrived at the refuge in September 2011 with 4 tiny kittens (Queenie, Midas, Sawyer, and PeeWee). She was such a good mama cat, but her babies are growing up and getting adopted now, and Boudacia would love to have a home of her own where she can be doted on. She's a loving and friendly girl who will be a wonderful addition to your family. Come meet her soon! Approx. DOB Fall 2010

Cat of the Week: Aunt Pearl

Aunt Pearl is a lovely young girl, a mostly white calico with beautiful markings and sweet eyes. She’s an affectionate kitty who loves to make biscuits while you pet her; it’s fun to see her do the classic "pushy paws" kitty dance.  Aunt Pearl gets along with other cats,  loves people and attention, and also enjoys playing with toys.  She'd love to come curl up in your home and provide unconditional kitty love. Come meet Aunt Pearl soon! DOB 2010

Cat of the Week: Big Tom

Big Tom arrived at the refuge in January 2011. The poor guy was in bad shape; he was hungry and skinny, and had an infected eye and an injured nose. He's healthy now and not as shy as he was at first. He's finally feeling comfortable enough to make friends and let us see what a charming and lovable fellow he really is! Big Tom is laid-back and undemanding; he enjoys relaxing on a warm blanket in the studio building and cuddling with his best friend, Commander. These two handsome fellows would make a wonderful pair of easy-going house cats.

Cat of the Week: Emma

Emma is one of the sweetest and most cuddly kitties you'll ever meet. All she wants is to love and be loved (and a comfy cat bed is nice too!). An adorable tabby with an orange stripe on her head and a cute white splodge on her nose, Emma has a prize-winning purr which you'll hear when you pet her. She's an experienced house cat whose family moved away and couldn't take their pets with them, so Emma has been through a lot of sad changes in the past year. Please give this gentle and beautiful girl a second chance at having a forever home. DOB 2009.
