Cat of the Week: Abigail

What a little sweetheart! Abigail is simply adorable. She's a pretty tortoiseshell teenager who loves to play with people and with other cats. It's a lot of fun to watch this free spirit kitty in action, and then when she's tired of exploring and playing, she'll snuggle right up in your lap for some cuddle time. This loving and gentle cat will bring joie de vivre to your home! Come meet Abigail soon (look for the cute tortie with a black nose and an orange right foot). Approx DOB Fall 2011.

Cat of the Week: Toodles

Toodles is a total lovebug!  This cute young calico girl has a gentle and affectionate personality.  It'll melt your heart to see how happy this kitty is when you pet her - her eyes light up and she rubs her little head against your hand. So adorable. Toodles was pregnant when she came to refuge in spring 2012; she was such a good mama cat, but now she's ready to be someone's baby girl herself. She'll be a wonderful best friend and companion for some lucky person. Please come meet Miss Toodles soon!  She's as sweet as they come.  DOB Spring 2011

Cat of the Week: Omar


Meet Omar,  a handsome and friendly black kitty with beautiful eyes and a big solid head! He came to the Goathouse in February 2012 along with 14 other cats who had to leave a no-kill shelter in South Carolina. He's used to living indoors with many other cats, so he would be a great addition to a multi-cat family. You can often find Omar lying on the table at the entrance to the Goathouse - stop by and say hello, give him a pat, and hear him purr! Please consider giving this cuddly sweetheart a home of his own. DOB 2010.

Cat of the Week: Pumppy

This is one sweet sweet kitty. When you pet this pretty girl, she gets completely blissed out; she closes her eyes and rolls around in happiness. What a love bug! And she's such a beauty with fabulous dark tabby stripes and swirls. Pumppy loves people and gets along with the other kitties. She'd be a perfect addition to your family!

Pumppy came to us this summer with two kittens, Quinn and Owen. Her babies have been adopted, and now it's Pumppy's turn! She's ready to give kitty kisses and unconditional love to the lucky person who gives her a forever home. Come meet Pumppy soon! DOB 2011.
