Cat of the Week: Annie

Annie is an adorable little fluffball kitten who is growing up to be a real beauty. She's a bit of a scaredy cat at first, and would do best with someone who can spend time bonding with her and be patient while she comes of her shell. Once Annie feels comfortable with you, she's a real sweetie who purrs when you pet her and loves to play with dangling toys and other kittens.  Her brother Patrick and sister Fiona have both been adopted; now it's Annie's turn! Please consider adopting one or more of our teenage kittens - teenagers are just as playful and fun as tiny kittens but are a little bit more calm and well-behaved. We know that Annie will blossom in the right home with the right loving person!   Approx DOB Fall 2011.

Cat of the Week: Lil Bit

Lil Bit has a broken heart. Until recently, she had a home with a person she loved very much, but then her owner had to go into assisted living and couldn't take Lil Bit with her. Lil Bit is bewildered and sad; she's homesick and really misses her person. She's a sweet and gentle cat who has always lived an indoor-only life where she enjoyed playing with her toys and sleeping in the bed with her owner.  Lil Bit gets along with other cats and with dogs but would be okay being an only-cat too. Lil Bit just wants a second chance at having a loving forever home! DOB 2008.

Cat of the Week: Parsley

Parsley is an out-going and affectionate young guy who is very interested in being friends with people! A handsome boy with fantastic tabby-and-white markings, Parsley came to the Goathouse from a now-closed cat shelter in South Carolina where he lived an indoor-only life with many other cats. He gets along with everyone, people and other cats alike, and has got an eager-to-please look that will steal your heart.  Parsley would love to have a home and family of his very own where he can get (and give) lots of love and cuddles. Come meet him soon! DOB Feb. 2009.

Cat of the Week: Baron

Baron is a mellow and friendly fellow who would love to join your family. One of our Flickr friends said that Baron is "the George Clooney of cats" which is a perfect description of this handsome guy! But Baron has more than movie star good looks, he's got a charming and lovable personality too. Baron came to the Goathouse from a now-closed no-kill shelter in South Carolina, so he's used to living indoors-only with many other cats. We don't know his background, but he has grey velvet fur and  amazing green eyes characteristic of a Russian Blue.  He's a beautiful cat in all ways. Come meet Baron soon! DOB Sept. 2007.

Cat of the Week: Goose

Meet Goose! She's an outgoing girl who is very friendly and playful. Goose is mostly white with black spots like a cow, and she has fluffy fur that is silky and beautiful. She's curious and affectionate, and will roll around on the floor at your feet asking for attention. An experienced house cat whose owner could no longer take care of her, Goose is more than ready to be someone's special kitty companion again. Goose is declawed on all four paws, so she will need a strictly-indoor home. Come meet this beauty soon! Approx DOB 2005.
