Chia is an easily loveable guy who will grow quickly on your heart.  He would do better in a quieter home with plenty of lap time to bond with his new family while being brushed.  Chia is also polydactyl (extra toes) and our volunteers give him two thumbs up!

She has great litterbox habits, is up to date on all of her shots, and has been spayed and microchipped.

Sunny and Sammy (aka Ebony) are close-knit  brothers who were dumped in the remote part of a local cemetery.  They were living in a large brush pile.  Sunny and Sammy were live-trapped and immediately vetted, and we learned that Sammy’s tail had been de-gloved and he needed a tail amputation.  Sunny had a small hernia and also required surgery.  Both boys have recovered from their surgeries and the emotional trauma and are ready to look for a new home together.  Sammy still has a little tail stub that he uses very expressively!

As a teenage mom, poor Monday is nearly a kitten herself! Even though she has not had much experience with motherhood, Monday is so caring towards her litter, and she will give each one of her six kittens kisses on the head. Monday was nervous upon moving into her foster home, as she was a stray and was never in one house for too long. Her tail would quiver and shake with anxiety. Now that she is comfortable, Monday loves to lay on laps and tolerates being picked up and held, and her tail never quivers anymore. Monday will need a little bit of time to adjust to her fur-ever home, because she will be nervous (rightfully so!). But once she gets over her initial fears, Monday loves to play and purr for her humans. She will be a great companion for a lucky family.

Even though Luna Belle and Audio are not related, they have been friends since they were tiny kittens. In summer 2014, Luna Bella arrived in her foster home with one of the worst eye infections we have ever seen. I took months of care and numerous treatments, but we were able to save both of Luna Belle’s eyes. She still has some occasional discharge, but is overall doing great. While she was recovering, Audio, who is only a few months older, took to her right away. The two of them bonded and were eventually adopted out together.

DOB 5/1/14 (Audio) and 7/22/14 (Luna Belle)


Have you ever thought about adopting a pair of cats that will keep each other company and entertain each other? Here is your chance! Chansey and Logan are two fun, playful cats who love nothing more than chasing after the laser pointer and playing with each other. They are not too fond of being picked up, but enjoy pets and brushing. And, more than anything else, they enjoy entertaining you with their antics.

DOB 6/1/16 (Chansey) and 1/10/17 (Logan) 


Meet Stella Ann! Well, it’s hard to miss her since she is usually waiting right by the door, trying to make sure that she is the first one to get food and attention. Stella Ann loves treats and has an adorable begging routine. She would do best in a home without young children though.

DOB 9/15/13


Jake is very friendly and playful. He is probably going to be a bit bigger than his brother Trooper. (*)

Looking for a cat with LOTS of personality? Then look no further! Even though his feline roommates are sometimes annoyed with his antics, Jamison enjoys being the class clown. Although he has a grown up body, he still is a kitten at heart. His favorite toys include laser pointers, feathers, ribbons and crinkly kick toys. Jamison loves to play and has so much energy that he would do best without other cats or young children. He has done well with dogs though.

DOB 1/14/15


Hello, My name is Mable, I'm an amazing little kitty who likes to keep to myself. Once I'm comfortable in a new surrounding, I'll venture out, but while I like to be petted and loved, I get a little attitude when you pick me up by surprise. But don't let that scare you, I really do want you to bring me home and make me part of your family. (*)


Curry has been with us since he was a little kitten. He has always been wary around people and he is a bit shy, but he can be affectionate if he is given time. With a little patience, he could be your new best friend! Curry loves to be up high and survey the rest of the cats, so he would really enjoy a cat tree or other sort of perch in a new home. He is bonded with his “girlfriend” Bailey, so we would love for them to find a home together. (*)

DOB 9/11/2018


Bailey came to Pet Refuge as a very shy, scared kitten. Thankfully, one of our very dedicated volunteers discovered that she LOVES baby food! With some time (and lots of baby food), Bailey came out of her shell and is now a very sweet girl to those she knows. Bailey is still a bit skittish and will need to spend some time with a potential adopter before she opens up to them. Once she gets over her initial fears, Bailey is a splendid cat and would make a great companion for a very lucky family. She is bonded to Curry and we would love to see them go home together. (*)

DOB 7/23/2018


My name is Blanca. My foster mom thinks I'm between 1-3 years old. I showed up on my foster mom's front porch when it was below zero. I was very hungry, thirsty, and sickly. I had a pretty bad ear infection you see, and didn't have any hair on my ears. The vet said I would have lost part of my ears from frostbite had I not been rescued. I've adapted quickly to this idea of being an indoor kitty. I like belly rubs, playing with my jingle ball, and snuggles. I currently have a room to myself. (*)


Piper is a gorgeous gal with beautiful, bright green eyes. The volunteers love her round, squishy babyface. Piper is unsure of the other cats and mostly prefers to watch their activities from the comfort of the cat tree. Piper would love a quieter home with lots of hiding places for her comfort. Piper enjoys attention and particularly loves head rubs. She is an absolute sweetheart! (*)

Abbie came to Pet Refuge with a litter of kittens. Now that her kittens are grown and ready for adoption, then Abbie is, too! Abbie is a regal cat who enjoys watching the activity of the cattery from her “perch”. She is very loving and receptive to petting when people come to visit her. Would you be able to give this lovely girl a permanent throne in your home? (*)

DOB 8/8/2018


Miss Trinity is quite the talker! She loves to greet her foster mom and is great at carrying on a cat-versation. Trinity is quite affectionate and will rub up against the legs of her foster mom. She loves head rubs and scratches behind the ears. Trinity absolutely loves canned cat food, and could easily eat a can or two a day by herself. Trinity’s coloration is called classic black tabby, as she has gorgeous swirls and spirals on her coat. She would be a wonderful cat for any household. (*)

DOB 12/14/2018


Marian spent her summer at Marian High School, going in and out of the service building on campus. A kind man would bring her food, even on the weekends. Once she started boarding the buses with the children, which wasn’t safe, she was brought to Pet Refuge to find a permanent home. Marian is a friendly, sweet girl who loves to be around people. She mostly likes to lounge around, and she enjoys being petted. She is spayed, litterbox trained, up to date on shots, microchipped, and gets along with cats and dogs. (*)

DOB 2/14/2019


Hi my name is Suzie. I'm a shy little thing that loves to just lay in the sun and soak up life. And I would love to soak up life with you in a forever home. (*)


Eugene used to live on a farm in New Paris, but was friendly enough to bring inside. Eugene loves to be held and enjoys head rubs. He is all white except for a patch of black fur on the top and side of his face - a pretty unique look! He has the most stunning yellow eyes. Eugene gets along with other cats and tolerates dogs. (*)

DOB 10/8/2018


My name is Kashmir and I am a sweet, sassy, beautiful girl. I don't care to be held, but I love to be brushed and will crawl in your lap. My favorite things are chasing jingle toys, lounging on the cat tree and crawling into bed with my foster mom and dad. (*)
