Hi… my name is Katie.

Adopted April 8, 2016

Sometimes the best of intentions go awry. My folks had hearts of gold and, like lots of people, just couldn’t say “no” when a stray cat arrived in their yard. After they’d accumulated 20 of us (none neutered!), they realized that they needed help finding us safe homes. So TALGV’s Outreach Program came to the rescue, and we’re here now and ready for just that — homes of our own. My mom said, “Katie has always been indoors and is very loving, but at times can be independent. She enjoys being on your shoulders and rubbing faces and purring. She’s intelligent and obedient, and although she tolerates other cats, would probably like to be an only child.” ‘Nuf said — just come meet me to see for yourself what sweetie I am!

Arrived March 26, 2015

PS If ANY cat considers you for adoption, you know you’re pretty lucky, but if one of our few FIV cats picks you, you can be sure you’re REALLY special!

NOTE: FIV is a virus that can only be passed among cats (humans or dogs are never affected), and only through blood. Since cats rarely fight to the degree of drawing blood, FIV positive cats can live long and healthy lives with both other FIV positive cats and friendly non-FIV cats. So don’t let those letters scare you — they’re practically like everyone else and they’ll love you even more for choosing them!
