Cat of the Week: Lucky

Lucky came to the refuge in February 2012 along with six other experienced house cats whose owner lost her home and could no longer keep her pets. He's a handsome young tabby-and-white fellow with fantastic markings and a gentle personality. Change isn't easy for kitties; Lucky was sad and scared at first but he's doing his best to fit in at the refuge and make new human friends. He would be so happy to get a second chance at having a forever home, and it would be even better if he were adopted with one of his best friends/ family members (Fred, Bimbo, Ziggy, or Hank). Come meet this sweet boy soon. DOB 2010.

Cat of the Week: Nikko

Nikko is a bright-eyed and shiny black kitty with a white locket on his chest. He can be a little bit timid when you first meet him, but it doesn't take much time or effort to make friends with the little guy (he loves to play with dangling toys!). Nikko came to the Goathouse from a now-closed no-kill shelter in South Carolina, and he's used to living indoors-only with lots of other cats. He would really love to have a family and forever home of his very own where he can get lots of affection and playtime and be someone's special cat rather than just another black cat in the crowd.   Come meet him soon! DOB 2010.

Cat of the Week: Charlie

Beautiful Charlie is so friendly and out-going that you can't help but fall in love with her! She's a brown tabby teenage girl with fluffy fur like a Maine Coon. Charlie is very curious about her surroundings and eager to make friends with people. She loves to play with toys, and sit on people's laps and be loved. Charlie spent the first six months of her life living in an indoor-only home until her owner surrendered her because she couldn't take care of her. So Charlie is an experienced house cat who really deserves a second chance at having a forever home. Come meet this sweet baby doll soon! Approx DOB May 2011

Cat of the Week: Joshy

Joshy is a cat with a lot of heart and soul. He's an extremely handsome tabby with speckled markings and a long face that makes him look like an Egyptian temple cat. And what a friendly and affectionate fellow he is! This sweet boy is so grateful for any pettting and attention he receives.  Joshy loves people, loves other cats, and would really love to have a home and family of his very own. Come meet this incredibly nice fellow soon -  he's a dreamboat. DOB 6/2009.
