Gloria was a stray mom cat who first came to Feline Rescue a few years
ago. Since then, she has had a hard time finding just the right forever home. Gloria is
a character. She is sweet but can be sassy too (she’s a typical tortie). She's shy at first, but once comfortable she's not shy at all. Gloria is vocal, and her foster family
enjoys listening to her silly noises.
Gloria is about 5 years old and likes to stay active. Recently
Gloria has the most fun playing with a little foster kitten named TJ, who was a stray rescued from animal control without his mom or family. Perhaps Gloria
sort of misses being a mom.
Gloria and TJ have so much fun chasing each other up and
down the hallways in their foster home. They are each good at playing independently
too. And they both love to watch birds and squirrels out the windows. This can
keep them entertained for hours.
TJ is a typical orange tabby kitten, easygoing and sweet
with people. He’s rambunctious and will keep you in stitches with his antics. He’s a snuggler too.
So if you can’t decide between adopting a kitten or an
adult, adopt both! You will have snuggly and sassy. And you’ll always be
entertained. Gloria and TJ make a fun pair!
Tom was rescued almost three years ago. He had spent the winter outside
and was in rough shape.
Tom was dirty and scared but was taken
in by a kind person who taught him to trust again. He looks great now!
Tom loves to hang out on a lap and will sometimes sleep next to his
people in bed. Wherever the people are, he's usually nearby. Tom needs a
little time to warm up to strangers, but he's gotten a lot better over
time. If you feed him, you'll be his best friend. He LOVES food. Tom is
about 6 years old.
Maisy joined the family about two years ago as a foster cat. She is about 5 years old and was
rescued from an outdoor colony in December, just before it got really
Maisy was very shy and scared but has
since become more comfortable and has learned to seek out affection from
people on her own terms. She loves living indoors, though she's still easily spooked by loud noises and
sudden movements. Maisy has learned a lot from Tom, and they are now
partners in crime.
that Maisy’s foster needs to move out of state and can’t take both
Maisy and Tom along, he’s decided that they can't be separated so it’s better to help find Tom and
Maisy a new home where they can stay together. They have been together
for more than two years and love to play and snuggle with each other.
Shy Maisy will adjust better to a new home with her best pal Tom along.
Tom and Maisy have been very lucky so far. Now they need good luck once
more to find their forever home. If you are looking for a sweet pair of
cats, please consider this gentle orange guy and his sweet little friend.

Looking for a big, sweet guy to keep your lap nice and warm this winter? Look no further than one of the following experienced lap warmers. Chief, Gibbs, Kramer and Mr. Short are four fabulous older male kitties being cared for in our foster program who are in need of a home and lap to call their own.
Oscar the Grouch was found in a trash can earlier today. Not only did he stink to high heaven but his right eye was not in its socket. It's not a recent injury but it's not one that's healed fully or properly. Gangrene is setting in (another reason he stinks). He was rushed to our vet where he is receiving medical attention. The extent of his injuries is not quite fully known yet. He's getting blood work (and a bath!) and will soon have surgery to repair his ocular cavity. He will recuperate in Foster care.
Oscar would like to point out that he's not grouchy. He's actually taking his ordeal in stride. He's being a good little patient and even put up with a bath and being poked and prodded by the vet. He's keeping his spirits up and is particularly happy to not be living in a trash can anymore.

A year ago, Hughie was a lonely and shy stray kitten rescued from animal control. Lulu was a 6-week-old kitten fending for herself outside in the early cold snap after her mother and siblings were trapped and brought inside without her. Once rescued, Lulu met Hughie in foster care, and from there life got better and better for both of them.
Here's an update from Mercedes, who adopted the best friends together:
I was just musing about how happy I am to have them in my life! They are both doing awesome. So much personality, and wonderful to see how they've grown and opened up.
Hughie is still a shy guy, and has that flight response from his feral streak, but he loves snuggles and he's perfectly comfortable around me. He follows me around and helps me get ready for work and sleeps curled up on my feet at the computer. He's very playful when he thinks no one is watching, and he carries the crocheted toy you left with him everywhere.
Lulu is a great influence on him, and makes him braver than he'd otherwise be. He's gotten big and strong (12.5 lbs) and he's built like a panther, but he's so gentle and sweet...
Lulu is a character. She's affectionate, brave, and a natural hunter. She is "cat" incarnate. Tiny and fearless, she keeps the house bug free, while cuddling in my lap every second she gets. She loves to be talked to, and is so adorable it hurts.
Both of them sleep with me every night, and they love each other to death. They're both model citizens. I couldn't imagine life without them.
Thanks again for bringing them into our lives. The work you do is so great.
