Cat of the Week: Chocolate

A sweet and gentle black cat with beautiful green eyes and chubby cheeks, Chocolate came to the refuge last February from a no-kill shelter in South Carolina where he lived indoors-only with many other cats. He's a peaceful and mellow kitty who loves to be petted. And what a handsome guy he is, like a big cuddly teddy bear cat. Black cats are often overlooked by people interested in adopting - all we are saying is give black cats a chance! Chocolate would love to spend the holidays with a loving family in a forever home of his very own. Come meet him soon. DOB 2010.

Kittens of the Week: Nacho and Rutuu

How can you resist these precious faces?!? Nacho and Rutuu are brother and sister, and they are both beautiful, playful, loving, and completely adorable. Nacho is a dapper orange and white boy, and Rutuu is a gorgeous tabby who is growing up to be a beauty just like their mama cat, Juno (who is also availalble for adoption). The kittens were born in March 2012, and they are growing up fast.

Both Nacho and Rutuu have a guardian angel who wants to see them in a loving forever home and has sponsored their adoption fees! So with an approved application, you can adopt one or both of these kittens for free and use the money you saved for a future vet visit or to buy them a bunch of cool kitty toys.

We like for our kittens to be adopted in pairs (learn why "Two Kittens are Easier Than One.")  and Nacho and Rutuu would be a fantastic pair! But if you have another young cat at home already, you can adopt one kitten. And if you are unable to adopt at this time, perhaps you would like to sponsor the adoption fee for one of our fantastic kittens or cats?

There are over 50 kittens available for adoption at the Goathouse now. Please help us spread the word - we would love to see these babies in forever home for the holidays!

Cat of the Week: Ziggy

Ziggy 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 tabby-and-white fellow who was pretty scared at first but is feeling much better. He now enjoys exploring the refuge grounds and making new human friends! Ziggy loves people and attention so much - give him a treat or a pat on the head, and he'll follow you around for the rest of the day. He really wants to be someone's special house cat again. Ziggy would love to be adopted with one of the other cats from his family (Lucky, Bimbo, Fred, or Hank). Come meet this cute and friendly boy soon. DOB 2007
