SENIOR CATS

FEATURED CAT

CYPRESS

Cypress is a nice, easy-going tabby cat with striking eyes and a beautiful striped fur coat. She likes to always be aware of her surroundings. She loves to follow you around and find out what's going on around her, and then makes a show of curling up somewhere comfortable so you can come over and give her some attention.
DOB 5/17/2009

BUZZ

Don't let Buzz's fluffy hair fool you – under that gorgeous black coat, this big beefy boy tips the scales at a whopping 18 pounds! He is a very calm cat and would do well with another calm cat in a quieter home. Buzz is front-paw declawed.

DOB 8/1/2013

TOBY

Although I am a handsome and a very sweet boy I sometimes do get a bit nervous.  New places and new people are very stressful.  I like people and cats once I get to know them.  I like soft food and pets but please do not touch my head.

DOB 4/2/2011

ALICE

Alice is a very independent cat. She does enjoy it when people talk to her and if she is in the mood she will allow you to pet her. But Alice knows that she is from a regal line and demands to be treated as such. Alice would do best with someone who has experience with cats.

Update Sept. 2020: Alice had a mammary tumor, so she had surgery to remove an entire mammary chain. She has recovered well and is back to her old self.

DOB 9/18/2010

Bagheera_20200702.jpg

BAGHEERA

I am the panther-man with white whiskers.  I am told that I am a bit standoffish but I just prefer to be petted when I am in the mood and by my rules.  I can be bribed with some soft food sometimes.  I do not care for the other cats much because I am the lone panther-man who likes to go his own way. 

DOB 7/27/2007

LOKI

Loki is a shy cat who tends to stay in the background. But if you take the initiative to approach him, he will gladly accept a petting on the head. His unique tail shape gives him some character too!

DOB 8/15/2011

DOONEY

Dooney may need time to get to know you, but she loves to be pet and brushed once she trusts you. She gets along with other cats, and will sometimes cuddle with some of her other calmer roommates.

DOB 1/20/2009

Shadow_Shelter-300x262.png

SHADOW

Shadow's family moved to a place that did not allow cats, so Shadow suddenly found himself without a home and in a very strange and scary place. He is nervous and hides but we are hoping that in time he will learn that people are here to help him and there are good things going on. Shadow needs a home that is quiet and filled with love and patience.

DOB 7/27/2007

Pipp.PNG

PIPP

Pipp is a volunteer favorite at the cattery. Pipp came to us after her owner passed away, and we’ve watched her blossom ever since! Pipp will draw you in with her piercing green eyes and hot tortoiseshell coat. She’s quite engaging and likes to be around humans. Pipp is inquisitive, playful, and very food oriented (bring on the baby food; just leave the baby behind). She would make an excellent addition to a quiet and loving home, and her “tortitude” will be sure to make life more fun. (*)

DOB 5/1/2013

SABRINA - **ADOPTED**

Our volunteers have described Sabrina as a "people person." She is friendly to visitors and loves to be brushed and petted. She usually will try to get your attention from a high shelf at the shelter.

DOB 7/10/2010

MOLLY

Molly is a sweet senior girl with a big personality.  Molly was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism, but is well controlled with her current oral medication.  Molly LOVES snuggling in bed with her foster mom and dad, lounging in sunbeams and having her ears rubbed.  Molly does very well with other cats and has lived with a small dog in the past. (*)

She loves to follow you around and find out what's going on around her, and then makes a show of curling up somewhere comfortable so you can come over and give her some attention.

DOB 5/17/2009

STASH

As you might have already guessed from looking at his picture, this handsome boy was named after his adorable little milk mustache. In addition to his good looks, Stash also loves attention… but he is not shy to let you know when he’s done getting pet. He would do best in a home without young children and would do well as an only cat. 

DOB 5/8/2012

Wendy_Kitten%20(3)_edited.jpg

WENDY

Wendy is a very shy and gentle type of cat.
Once I brought her home she blossomed, she likes to be around people, always following us around the house and laying next to us.
Her eyes are mesmerizing and her fur is as soft as silk, she is not a lap cat but she will give you all the love and affection on her own way. (*)

DOB 5/14/2007

KITTY ZOEY

I am a feisty girl who likes things my way.  If you want a fun, spicy girl look at me.  But I rule.  I prefer a quiet home with no dogs or young children.  Although I like some older children and mellow cats.  I will stand up on my hind legs to take a treat out of the hand of one of the volunteers that I like. 

DOB 3/2/2010

LUNA

With his cute little snaggletooth, Luna is a playful guy who loves treats and being brushed.  While he may not readily hop onto your lap, he will endlessly chase a laser pointer around. Does well with other cats. 

DOB 2/20/2010

GINGER

Ginger is such a sweet, mellow cat! She loves lounging around all day and is the perfect couch potato. She will happily cuddle up with her foster parents for a nap anytime! Ginger is also a social butterfly, who will excitedly run up and greet all guests. She will purr and roll over for love and affection. When she isn’t lounging or on a lap, Ginger really enjoys being brushed! She will come running and start purring at the sight of her favorite brush. This sweet, affectionate girl enjoys being the center of attention, and needs to be the only cat in the home. Ginger would be the perfect, most loving companion to anyone! (*)
DOB 4/7/2013

TONY TORNADO

Tony Tornado originally got his name because he liked to zoom all over the place, playing hard to get, especially around people he just met. However, he has mellowed quite a bit over the years and is a much more laid back cat these days. He's definitely not a fan of being picked up, and would rather interact with you on his own terms.

DOB 5/1/2009

GUMMY BEAR

Gummy Bear was not happy when she came back to the shelter! When a volunteer would try to take her box to clean little Gummy Bear would yell "my box, my box, you can not have it". But the volunteers kept talking to her and explaining that we really just want to clean this for you and make things nice and will give it back. Gummy Bear has come a long way since then and now she sometimes lets us see how cute she can be. (*)

DOB 11/15/2005

PATRÓN

Patrón is very nervous about people and will need plenty of time to be comfortable in a new environment. Sometimes he'll watch his buddy Coach for social cues to make sure everything is okay. Once he's built his trust with you, he loves to have his back scratched! He does not have any teeth, but that does not stop him from eating dry food.

DOB 7/24/2009

COACH

Coach is one of the best lap cats at the shelter. Sometimes he won't even wait until you're fully sitting down to get on your lap! He is bonded with Patrón, but is definitely the more social cat of the pair.

DOB 1/20/2009

MINNIE MAE

Minnie Mae tells us that she has a lot to say sometimes and likes people.  But she has had a lot of stress in her life and sometimes needs to be a grumbly bear.  Minnie does tend to think outside the box, possibly because it is uncomfortable for her digging in the litter since she is 4-paw declawed.

DOB 11/10/2010

Jeffy_cat-300x255.png

JEFFY

Jeffy says that although he feels a bit shy if he does not know you he really is curious about you and all that goes on around him.  I enjoy sitting on the high shelves so I won't miss anything. (*)

DOB 4/3/2010

Panda_cat_2014-286x300.png

PANDA BEAR

Panda Bear got his name from not only his Black & White coloring but also from his rounded ears that were a result of frostbite damage. The poor little guy has spent most of his life outdoors without much human contact and he originally came to us in need of some socialization. However, he has turned into quite the little social butterfly these days. 

DOB 9/1/2008

STELLA ANN

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 9/15/2013

MACK

Mack is a very handsome talkative boy who enjoys it when his human friends give him attention. Although Mack tolerates the other cats he really would much rather be the only cat in his own house.  All these cats are very hard on him and although he is very laid back and a totally cool dude sometimes it is just too much for him and he feels a bit grumpy about the shenanigans of those other cats.

DOB 4/23/2005

MINNIE

Minnie is a shy little girl who came to us 4-paw-declawed. Once she knows and trusts you, Minnie likes to be held and petted. Unfortunately, Minnie has developed an aversion to the litterbox due to her declawing surgery and will sometimes go outside of the box. She will need a special owner or, in the meantime, we would appreciate donations to help us with her ongoing care.

DOB 4/1/2005

LAYLA

Layla is a classic brown tabby and she is cute as a button! When Layla first made it into Pet Refuge in February of 2010, she was unsure of people and was hiding for a few days. Layla has come a long ways in her foster home. She loves her playtime, especially her squeaky mouse and feathery toys. She is also enjoying the company of other cats and kittens and will need an active playmate in her new home! Yet while Layla is doing well around people she knows and trusts, she is still shy around strangers. (*)

DOB 12/1/2009

MAX

Max is a darling playful fun loving boy. With his activity level we are hoping to find someone who is experienced with the more mischievous side of cats. Max loves attention and action. He is the adventurer and explorer of the crowd. Shortly after Max was returned to us, he stopped eating and became very sick. Luckily, he has fully recovered and is doing great these days.

DOB 1/11/2008

BABY CHOO

Baby Choo is a very active and nosy young man. He likes to be into everything. He is not big on being picked up and held, but he loves to be petted and will let you know when he wants to be loved on. He does well with other cats (after a short adjustment period) and enjoys running around the house playing chase games with them. (*)

Zoey_Shelter-300x200.png

ZOEY

"Brush me, I'm beautiful!" Princess Zoey is a big, Black & White, loveable girl whose favorite things in the world are a good brushing and a nice belly rub. In fact, she likes being brushed so much that you'd think she was perpetually getting ready for a date! Zoey is good with other cats, and is very eager for you to bring her home to her new palace. Zoey is currently on Cosequin for bladder health and will have to be on this medication for the rest of her life. (*)

DOB 11/20/2006

SUSHI

Sushi is a sweet grey female. She enjoys being petted and playing with toys on strings. Sushi also gets along well with other cats. She is a bit shy in new surroundings and around new people, but once she gets used to things, she is a very happy girl. She loves canned food and napping in the sun. (*)

AFRIKA - **ADOPTED**

Unlike most torties, Afrika is a petite lovebug who loves nothing more than to cuddle up on your lap! Afrika is very gentle and would love a quiet home where she can spend her golden years getting lots of love and attention. Afrika is front-paw declawed and does well with other calm cats and older children.

DOB 10/1/2006

RUSTY - **ADOPTED**

I am a sweetheart, the volunteers told me so.  I love attention and soft food.  I can be very chatty, because I want to tell you all about my day and let you know about everyone who passed by the window.  Come and see me and I will fill you in on all the activities. Rusty is front declawed. (*)
