Sammy was born on May 15, 2016. He's distinctive looking with a buff tabby head and tail and the rest of him is white except for four buff spots on one side. Sammy is so sweet and lovable and likes other cats! He's neutered, tested for feline leukemia, dewormed and has his distemper vaccines. He'd make a great addition to your family!
Buster is a special needs cat! He's a beautiful brown tabby, about two years old and very lovey but gets excited and sometimes bites. Buster can't be with children but needs an adult(s) who will work with him and gain his trust, in hopes that the biting will stop. He was injured the night before he came to us and his back legs didn't function to support him but nothing was broken and he has had a full recovery. Buster is neutered, dewormed, tested for feline leukemia and FIV and has his vaccines. He could possibly be an indoor/outdoor cat under the right circumstances. Could you find it in your heart to give this kitty a home?
Sky is a three year old, beautiful, brown tabby who cared extremely well for her kittens and is now looking for someone to love her and give her a home of her own! She's a very loving and playful kitty and might be best as an only cat but would probably be fine with others with a proper introduction. Sky is spayed, dewormed, tested for feline leukemia and FIV, is vaccinated and has a microchip. Under the right circumstances, she could be an indoor/outdoor kitty. Could you give this sweet girl a forever home?

Duchess is a grey stripped tabby; Female, age guessed to be about 2-3 years old. She was an outdoor cat who is still somewhat wary of people. She is slowly adapting and will often let you touch her, as of now we can not hold or pick her up. Her foster sees great potential for her to be a loving lap cat, she needs a patient human willing to work with her and earn her trust. Duchess will be spayed and vaccinated once her kittens are weaned.
Natasha was born May 10th, 2017. She's been spayed, tested for feline leukemia, dewormed and has some vaccines. Natasha was rescued living near a busy street and is a little shy at first. She has an endearing chatter which she does more than she meows. Natasha is a delightful little girl who loves to play! Could she chatter at your house?
Samara is a super affectionate beautiful calico 16 year old kitty. She does not mind other cats but prefers human company. She just recently had a dental and a full blood panel with excellent results. Samara does take a thyroid pill every day for hyperthyroidism but this medication is very inexpensive, about $20-30 for 100 pills. Can Samara live out her golden years in your house?
‘Stache is a very lovable, 7 year old black and white indoor female cat (spayed, vaccinated, with microchip, FELV/FIV negative). Originally from the holy city of Jerusalem, ‘Stache and her three sisters made the long journey to Madison, WI in 2016 when their owner had to relocate. Since then, her owner relocated again to Turkey and sadly, cannot keep her. ‘Stache has a wonderful, calm temperament – she is gentle, somewhat shy, yet tolerant of other cats and dogs. She ADORES humans and demands attention. She is really quite vocal, which is endearing. She will come to your lap at all times and will immediately approach you when called. I used to work the night shift at a hospital and would return home at 6 am to find her waiting for me on the balcony, plaintively meowing! She does get attached to whoever is taking care of her. She climbs into my bed every night and waits for me to arrive, as part of our nightly ritual.
I truly wish I could keep her, but I think another lengthy plane trip may prove to be too much for dear ‘Stache. I am therefore looking for a dependable, forever home for my beloved cat, which is now living with my elderly parents who cannot take care of her. As an alternative to permanent rehoming, I am also considering reliable foster options for ‘Stache and am willing to cover the financial costs of food and litter on a monthly basis (and to pay for any veterinary expenses). If interested in fostering, we can connect to rescues in Madison and in WI who would showcase the cat.
Sybil is a beautiful, long haired, brown tabby! She's a big kitty, but not overweight, who is just over a year old! She gets along with kids and dogs and loves to play! Sybil is very loving but on her own terms and will seek your attention when she's ready. She loves being talked to and is a good listener, too! Sybil is spayed, tested for feline leukemia and up to date in vaccines. Could she play at your house
Reuben is a healthy 8 year old neutered male 9.3 lbs, orange tabby, front declawed. He was adopted by an older man as a kitten and lost his home when his owner became too ill to keep him. Reuben is is slowly warming up after this transition and would love to be in a quiet forever home. He is tolerant of other cats and dogs who are not in his face. He is starting to learn the joy of toys, likes to be able to see what is going on from his cat tree perch even if not brave enough to venture far. He eats dry food only but loves it moistened by a little water. Excellent litter box habits. He does not like loud noises and being chased so would be best in a home with older and respectful children. Orange cats are super friendly and loyal, adopt Reuben today!
Slinky is a small healthy active 1 year old spayed Tortoiseshell female. She was adopted from a farm by a young owner whose social life interfered with providing proper cat care. Slinky is active, playful and cuddly. She has lived with cats and dogs and is fine with school age children. Never been around infants or toddlers. Can you let Slinky slink around your house.
