Hi… my name is Buttercup,

Once upon a time I lived with another cat and my human mom but after a few years, that old green-eyed monster, jealousy, reared its ugly head and I lost my home. Then I went to live with a senior couple (who moved and couldn’t take me along), so I’m back again, and “available” as they say in the personals! I’m a “meeter and greeter” kind of lady who likes being near you, not necessarily on you, but I love you just the same! I’m an almost 8-year-old tabby girl with a distinctive “golden” paw (that’s how I got my name – like I dipped it in a tub of butter!), and I’m sure when it’s just you and me, life will be a bowl of cherries!

Hi… my name is Gracie,

Adopted with Sophia 3-4-17

Gracie comes with Free Vet Care for Life

In my “first life,” I lived with my friend, Sophia, and a houseful of kids and dogs for seven years. Even then, we much preferred the older, quiet humans to the raucous “others,” and after they had to relinquish us, we went to live with a single, older lady and life was finally serene. Sadly, after our mom died, there was no family to take us in, so we’re both back again, looking for that “third time’s a charm” place (hopefully together!). I’m an affectionate, declawed “meeter-and-greeter” type who, at almost 15 years, will have free vet care for life (and offer a whole lot of “thank you” love if you take me home!). “Seniors for seniors” is my mantra, so why not let it be yours, too?

Hi… my name is Tazra,

Adopted 3-11-17

Tazra comes with Free Vet Care for Life

Okay, let’s be up front here. I’m a 20-year-old lady (so I have free vet care for life) who’s getting a smidge creaky around the edges ­­– my hearing isn’t quite what it used to be, I tend to nap and watch TV a lot, and I occasionally miss my litterbox (well, I get in it, I just hang over the edge a bit!) – but hey, there are a lot of people in Green Valley with the same “ailments!” I like to sit in your lap and get ear and chin scratches though, and I still play with toys occasionally, so I’m not a total stick-in-the-mud! Someone once said, “Blessed be the person who takes in an older cat, for their time with us is more important than our time with them.” I’m hoping you believe that!

Hi… my name is Merlin,

Adopted 2-25-17

OK, I guess I need to go to an “anti-bullying” class ‘cause that’s what cost me my home! When my dad’s girlfriend and her cats moved in I wasn’t in a very welcoming mood, and have to admit that I did intimidate them a bit too much (hey, I was there first!), so unfortunately my housemate, Scarlett, and I were the ones that had to leave. Dad said I got along “to the point of playfulness” with the dogs in residence though, was very loving with people and kids, and “played with anything.” Well, I guess I’ve learned my lesson, so if you’re looking for a “playful, kittenlike, bold, outgoing, gentle, and tolerant” (with everyone but felines!) addition to your family, I’m your guy!

Hi… my name is Sonni,

Adopted 2-14-17

Petite and sweet – that’s me! I didn’t live with my dad for very long when he developed serious health issues and simply didn’t have the energy to devote enough time to my sister, Nova (who has already found a new home, lucky thing!), and me. He loved us dearly though, as we were both pretty laid back and spent a lot of time in his lap while he scratched our ears and gave us “to die for” head rubs. Since I’m still considered a youngster at 11 months of age, I’ve got years and years ahead of me to lavish my love on a new person or two, so when you decide that feline love is what you crave, I’ll be here waiting!

Hi… my name is Malia,

Adopted 2-13-17

They say, “All things come to those who wait,” but I sure hope that I don’t have to wait too long, ‘cause I’m pretty anxious at the moment in this strange (and very busy!) place. My friend, Sasha, and I have always been laid back, quiet ladies, and since we lost our home, it’s really been hard on us. The wonderful caregivers here are doing their best to reassure us that life will be good for us again someday, but I’ll bet it’d be much easier for us to believe that in a quiet home of our own. I’m a 4½ -year-old tabby lady, who’d give anything to share life’s slower pace with you (and maybe with Sasha too!), so won’t you make my dreams come true?

Hi… my name is Zoey Ann,

Adopted 1-16-17

No one knows how I lost my eye, but if it makes no difference to you, I can assure you it makes no difference to me, ‘cause it doesn’t bother me one bit! After my mom lost her home and moved to California, a friend took me in until a relative was to have taken me, but that never happened. My temporary home was loaded with other critters – dogs, cats, rabbits, and guinea pigs – and I just never adjusted to that many other creatures vying for space and attention, so here I am, hoping for a quiet place where I can “have it all”! I love being petted (my rumbling purr will be your first clue!), and adore people, so why not be my “second eye” and let’s look at life together!

Hi… my name is Asdis,

Adopted 2-24-17

Yeah, well, it is a strange name, but when you learn that it’s Icelandic for “goddess,” then you’ll agree it’s pretty appropriate! And it’s pronounced just like it looks, unless you’re British, and then you’d call me “Ahz-deece”! And now you probably know more than you want to about my name, so on to the more important issue of me! I’m a totally delightful longhaired tabby (some say I look like a small Norwegian Forest Cat, so maybe more on the “Nordic” theme!), who’s a typical sweet, curious, active, love-everyone girl. My mom discovered she was allergic to me shortly after she became pregnant, so although my 10 months with her (and her dogs) were great, now I’d like to spread the joy. How about with you?

Hi… my name is Vanessa,

Adopted 3-6-17

Here’s some of what my rescuer said about me: “Vanessa was born on Memorial Day 2016. She will let you pick her up and pet her (although she acts indignant about it!), her favorite toy is a crumpled up piece of tin foil, and she can be a (playful!) ‘head batter’ at times!” I was always an outdoor cat (along with a whole passel of others), but fun as that might have been, that just wasn’t safe for me, so now I want a nice warm indoor home where I can turn my attention to a human or two instead of those little furry creatures called mice! At my age, I’ve got lots of living and loving to do, so why not help me discover the joys of a real home with you?
