If you’re looking for VERY special cat companion, Wonder would love to meet you. She’s a 9-year-old, medium-haired girl who also happens to have been blind since birth. Wonder was surrendered to us when family members became allergic; it took her a couple days to get her bearings but she very quickly became the sweetest, most affectionate cat you can imagine. Once she hears voices nearby she’s ready to find a lap to snuggle in and will happily sit for marathon petting and brushing sessions. Catnip toys are also a big hit with her. Wonder navigates perfectly well in her large enclosure, and locates her bowls, litter box and favorite bed with no problem. This adorable girl is looking for a calm home, where she can be the only pet.
Do you have a sunny window and a comfortable lap to share? Life at the shelter is a little chaotic for our gentle Molly. She is an around 8-10 years old, front declawed, and just wants a quiet place to call home. She isn’t too interested in playing but she adores cheek rubs and pets.
One look at Gnarly and it’s hard not to fall in love. He’s a handsome, three year old Maine coon mix, looking for a forever home. He’s a friendly, social guy but prefers not to be held or carried around. Most toys don’t interest him, but his foster family found that he adored carrying fuzzy mice around the house. He previously lived with a large dog and they were best buddies, so we expect he would do well in a home with a canine sibling. No small children for him though – he would find them a little too overwhelming.
Don’t be fooled by Hemlock’s perpetually grumpy face — he has an endearing personality. We estimate that he’s about 10 years old, and recently had most of his teeth pulled. We’d love for him to find a comfortable home to spend his retirement years. He came from a home with other cats so we think he’d be okay with an older feline friend.
LOUIE & BELLA
These two are quite a stunning pair. Louie is a Pixie-Bob and weighs in at over 20 pounds. His smaller sidekick Bella is no slouch either, though she’s small by comparison. We’re still getting to know this bonded pair, but so far it’s clear that Bella is the more outgoing of the two. She loves being brushed and will happily climb into your lap for pets. Both cats are front declawed, and are about five years old.
This is Nomad, also known as the Party Crasher cat. He was discovered living under someone’s couch a couple of days after they’d had a party. Doors had been left open so Nomad apparently wandered in and made himself comfortable! He has been the perfect guest since arriving at the shelter, and we would love to find this wandering boy a place to call his own. We’ll never know his history but it’s clear from his condition when he came in that he’d had some rough times. He doesn’t ask for much – plenty of food, a comfortable place to sleep, and someone to brush and pet him – a lot! He’s FIV+ so he’ll need a home where he is the only cat, or one with other FIV cats. If you’re looking for a special cat to snuggle and spoil, there’s no better candidate than Nomad.
POP & SNAP
Pop and Snap came to the shelter as 4-week-old feral kittens. They went into a foster home for socialization with humans. They now love being sweet, playful, gentle, funny snuggle bugs! They will need a quiet home with cat-savvy parents who understand that they are shy and will need time to adjust to a new home. Former feral kittens, once they trust you, become extremely loyal to their people and the snuggliest and most loving kitties!
Ice is a handsome, affectionate cat looking for a quiet home. At age 11, he’s not too interested in playing – he’d much rather sit on your lap or hang out and observe his surroundings. As is common in cats his age he is taking thyroid medication, which he happily devours in a pill pocket. Ice would probably prefer to be an only cat, though he might be okay with a calm and welcoming feline roommate. He definitely needs an adult household – small children are not his thing!
COFFEE & SYLVIA
Sylvia and Coffee were trapped in the Fall of 2015 as kittens living with their mom and their brother on the street. They were spayed and vetted and after a slow start with socialization in their first foster home, they were ready for their forever home within 6 months. However, the first adopters allowed their brother to escape their building so Sylvia and Coffee returned to their rescuer for more foster. The 2nd adopters were caring and spent the time to slowly gain the girls’ trust, but unfortunately divorced. The cats lost their home as the husband who wanted to keep them, had to move out of military family housing back into the barracks. The sisters are in search of a quiet home as they are escape artists when stressed. Once you gain their trust, they are very playful, loving cats! They would be best as the only cats (Sylvia is less tolerant of other cats than Coffee). This sweet pair is currently in a foster home, so if you would like more information about them, or would like to make arrangements to meet them, please email us at EASadoptions@gmail.com.
SAMI – In foster
Sami is a 6-year-old Bengal cat who was surrendered by his owner for inappropriate urination. We have no way to know what was causing this problem, but we feel it might be the result of being intimidated by the other resident cat. He has been in a boarding facility for several weeks and has used the litter box appropriately in that environment. There is no reason to believe the problem is caused by a medical condition, although he does have a heart murmur that requires further investigation. One of his eyes is blind or partially blind and he has recently been an indoor/outdoor cat.
This is what we are seeking in a foster home for Sami:
- Ideally, some experience with the Bengal breed
- No other cats (preferably no other animals for now)
- No small children
- A commitment to keep him indoors
While the foster home could certainly become his forever home if they chose to, this is really a plea for someone to take him into their home and evaluate his behavioral and medical condition. We need to determine the severity of his heart murmur and develop a treatment plan as that could be contributing factor. The shelter would cover medical costs during the foster period. If interested, please complete this online foster application and mention Sami the Bengal in your comments.
DORA – In foster
We are pleased to introduce Dora! It has been a long road for this amusing girl, but she is finally ready for her forever home. She was rescued by some kind people who found her living in their backyard and brought her to the shelter. At first it was impossible to tell for sure how feral she was and whether we would be able to socialize her. It took a little time and some patience — on her part AND ours — but she has blossomed into a playful, intelligent and affectionate cat. She’s currently in a foster home where she enjoys bird videos, playing with wand toys, and hanging out with her foster mom. Dora will need a calm home with an experienced and patient person to help her get comfortable in her new surroundings. If you’d like to find out more about Dora or make arrangements to meet her, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
M.J. – In foster
M.J. is a quiet senior cat looking for a quiet, calm place to live out her golden years. She enjoys being brushed and getting some pets, but is equally happy to be on her own just observing what’s going on around her. She requests no young children, please, and would ideally be an only pet.
TINKER TAYLOR – In foster!!
Tinker Taylor is a beautiful, playful 1-year-old cat who needs to find a very special home. She has an incurable neurological condition that impacts her movement and bladder. To learn more about Tinker, click here.
