Cat of the Week: Rosalinda

Isn’t she a doll? Everyone who sees lovely Rosalinda notices her amazing jewel green eyes and perfect tabby markings. But she’s more than just a pretty face, this girl is brimming with personality. Rosalinda loves to talk and has an unmistakable squeaky little kitty voice. It’s lots of fun to listen to her tell you all about her day and gossip about what the other cats are up to.

When she came to the refuge a year ago, Rosalinda was unhappy and tense about being around so many other cats.  She’s more relaxed now but even so, she would love to have a home of her own where she can get lots of attention and petting, and have a best friend to chat with on a daily basis. Her brother, Pancho, was adopted a couple of months ago, and we’d love to see Rosalinda go to a loving home too. Come meet her soon! Approx DOB June 2010.

Cat of the Week: Augusto

Augusto is a sweet and easy-going teenage kitten who is getting more and more handsome every day. He came to the refuge last summer along with his sisters, Lorena and Clavel. The girls have been adopted, and Augusto is ready to go to a home of his very own too.  He's pretty laid back for a kitten, but he does love to  play and explore. An all-around nice guy, Augusto gets along with everyone - kittens, cats, and people alike. He's not the kind of cat who will come running up to you, but he's always happy to get some affection from volunteers and visitors. Everyone needs at least one tuxedo cat! Augusto would be a great addition to your family. Approx. DOB May/June 2011

Cat of the Week: Mao

You're simply not going to meet a nicer cat than Mao. He's a talkative and handsome fellow who loves people and gets along great with other cats. Mao has been through some tough times; for the first six years of his life, he had a family and home along with his twin sister, Ming. But then through no fault of his own, his family was forced to surrender their pets. Mao was so sad and scared when he first came to the Goathouse a year-and-a half ago, but he's settled in now, and enjoys napping on top of a cage in the Studio building and being petted by volunteers. He's not a needy cat, but he's oh-so grateful when anyone pays attention to him. His former owner told us that Mao is great with children - he's playful yet gentle, and loves to play fetch just like a dog! His sister, Ming, has been adopted, and we really hope that someone will fall in love with Mao and give him a home of his very own too. Come meet him soon! DOB 3/2004.

Cat of the Week: Luna

If you're looking for an outgoing and loving little cat, Luna is your girl. She's a beautiful, solid white teenage kitty who will reach her kitten arms up to you, just begging to be held. She's very affectionate and will crawl into your lap and make herself right at home. Luna enjoys playing with the other Goathouse kittens and would love to go to a home where there's another cat she can romp and cuddle with. Super cute when she was a baby, Luna is getting more beautiful everyday.  Come meet this adorable and friendly girl soon! Approx DOB May 2011.

Happy Tails: Raggedy Ann and Teddy Ruxpin

We love Happy Tails! A nice report from the family who adopted this brother/sister duo:

You were absolutely right about Teddy and Raggedy Ann - they're so cuddly, loving, and playful, and I couldn't have picked a better pair! Tomorrow will mark the two week anniversary of our little family, and I'm thrilled about how the cats have settled in here.
 Raggedy Ann has become very talkative and playful; she's extremely curious, and loves people watching and nibbling on unsuspecting toes. When they first came, Teddy was very timid, and it was so sweet to see how his sister took care of him. He's become a lot more open and confident, and he's eating extremely well now (he was very thin when he first came). He enjoys cuddling with stuffed animals, and when he's not too sleepy, he likes to play with his kitty toys.

Cat of the Week: Sarah

Isn't she adorable? Sarah is a roly poly little cat who loves people and has a great personality. You can definitely tell that she used to be someone's sweet little house cat before! Sarah was pulled from the county shelter where her owner had surrendered her.  This cutie pie loves to be petted, held, talked to, and carried around. She purrs up a storm when you pay attention to her. Please give this beautiful girl a second chance at having a forever home. Approx. DOB 2001
