Hi… my name is Cuddles,

It’s amazing what plastic surgery can do! Although I may look like a Scottish Fold cat, actually I had aural hematomas, and when they did surgery to treat them, they decided to add a bit of “personality” to my ears! My dad had twelve cats that he left with his mother when he moved (happily for TALGV, she found homes for eleven of them!), so now it’s me needing one, too. She said that I’m very gentle, like to play with a laser, love to be loved, and am a true lap cat. I didn’t get along with the aggressive cats in my tribe (who likes a bully?), so it’d be kinda nice to be an only child for a change! Why don’t we get together and discuss it?

Hi… my name is Eleora,

Adopted 5-17-17

“Good with everyone, eats anything, plays with anything, likes to cuddle.” Not to toot my own horn, but you can’t get much better than that can you? Given all those positives, you might wonder why I’m here. Well, my not-so-little family (which included four kids ages 5 to 15!) is moving out of the country, and my housemate, Louie, and I weren’t able to go along. I’m just a “teenager” who has morphed from the darling fuzzball kitten I was when I first arrived at TALGV to a gorgeous loves-everybody boy, so now’s your chance to take advantage of all the years I have ahead of me and let me make your life as full of love as I did my erstwhile family’s!

Hi… my name is Louie,

“Likes hunting (indoors!), plays with anything, loves hanging around with other cats and their owners, knows his name, and is very clever.” If I’m such a dynamite guy, you might wonder why I’m here. Well, my not-so-little family (which included four kids ages 5 to 15!) is moving out of the country, and my housemate, Eleora, and I weren’t able to go along. I’m 2 years old, and although sometimes a bit independent, love cuddling and having my ears and chin scratched, and am a gentle guy who never uses his claws when playing. With my silky medium-haired tabby coat and winning ways, I know that your life will be a whole lot more exciting once I’m part of it!

Hi… my name is Buddy,

Won’t someone out there let me live up to my name again? I really was a good buddy with my humans, but oh, those dogs – definitely not my bowl of cream! Turns out cats are not my fave either, so I’m yearning for a place where it’ll be just you and me, strolling down the avenue of life. And at just 18 months, we’re going to have lots of walks to take (indoors of course!) and time to get to know each other. My family said that I was “stationary” most of the day (like many cats!), but come dark, the real me emerges: calm, friendly, and cuddly! I know it won’t take long for you to realize that I’m just the furry friend you’ve been searching for!

Hi… my name is Daisy,

Adopted 5-14-17

You know how most cats hate water don’t you? Well, the volunteers said that when they gave me a much-needed bath and brushing out, I purred the whole time! Maybe it’s just that I wanted attention so badly that I was grateful for anything! My young mom brought my kittens and me into TALGV to save us because her landlord was threatening to abandon us in the desert (he was definitely not a cat person!), so we’re all mighty thankful for that! I’ve had quite a few babies in my 3 years, but now that I’ve been spayed, I can get on with the business of just enjoying life and being the playful companion I’m meant to be. Won’t you give me a chance to do just that?

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,

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!
