Cat of the Week: Bimbo

What an awesome little guy this is! Bimbo is an experienced house cat who came to the Goathouse with six other cats whose owner lost her home and could no longer take care of her pets. Bimbo is a talkative boy who loves to cuddle and be held. A real sweetheart! He loves people and attention, and he likes to hang out in the refuge kitchen and talk to the volunteers while they work. This handsome, friendly, and loving fellow really deserves a second chance at having a forever home. Please come meet Bimbo soon! DOB July 2009.

Happy Tails: Dawn

Her new name is Twiggy! A nice report from her new family:

This is one sweet sweet kitty. We could not be more grateful for what she has brought into mom's life. She took a while to warm up but has bonded beautifully.

She has a cardboard box we keep her toys in, and she throws the toys out and plays in the box and then hides the toys all over the apt to find later. Later we find the toys back in the box. She sleeps with mom during all her naps. She has her quiet places but uses them less and less.

Thank you again for helping us adopt our new girl.

Cat of the Week: Juno

Juno is a sweet brown tabby girl with a round face and inquisitive, gentle gaze. This little lapcat loves people! She is so very happy when visitors come to the refuge and pay attention to her. She loves nothing more than to relax in a warm human lap.  Juno came to the refuge in the Spring of 2012 with her five kittens in tow. Some of them have been adopted, but Nacho (orange tabby) and Rutuu (brown tabby) are still looking for a home too. Wouldn't you like to bring this special girl home (and maybe one of her kittens too!)? Approx DOB is 2011.

Cat of the Week: Logan

Logan is a handsome young orange tabby who came to the Goathouse in February 2012. He was so scared when he first arrived and is still very intimidated about living with so many other cats. Logan can be a little bit shy at first, but it doesn't take long to make friends with him. Once he realizes that he can trust you, he is very loving and soaks up affection like a sponge. Logan really needs a safe and loving home where he can relax and enjoy life. This sweet and gentle boy will be a wonderful best friend and house cat for some lucky human.  Come meet Logan soon! DOB 2010.

Cat of the Week: Amber

Amber is one of the prettiest little tabby girls you've ever seen, with bright green eyes and a sweet face. She came to us in autumn of 2011 after her owner surrendered her to a public shelter. Amber was so sad and bewildered to find herself homeless; she had a "why me?" look in her eyes that was heart-breaking. She really wants to be someone's special house cat again! Amber loves people, other cats not so much. She would be so happy to be your one-and-only cat friend. Amber is living in a foster home right now so contact the Goathouse office to make arrangements to meet her. Please give Amber a second chance at having a forever home. DOB 2005.
