Hi… my name is René,

Adopted 10-29-17

I guess it’s nice to be on Facebook, but not because you’re a girl without a home! It was nice that caring neighbors posted my pictures in an attempt to find my owner, but they didn’t have any luck, so here I am, in all my orange, black, and white glory (you can’t miss ME in a crowd!) ready to trade the “fame” of the Internet for a normal life! I may have been a “streetwalker” for a while, as I have a tipped ear (indicating I’d been trapped and spayed), but there’s not a feral bone in my body, so I belonged to someone once. And I’d sure like to belong again! At just 3 years old, think of all the time we’ll have swapping life stories!

Hi… my name is Mariah,

Mariah comes with FREE Vet Care for Life

When they were handing out unique looks, I must have been at the head of the line, because with my one-of-a-kind nose, I won first prize! Like many calicos, I’m can be on the shy side, but once you get to know me, my “sweet specialness” comes to the fore (my mom said I’m an “amazing” cat!). Unfortunately “domestic problems” necessitated her moving in with a family member allergic to cats, so now I’m searching for another quiet home where it will be just me and my human sharing a life’s worth of experiences. And at 13 years old, I’ve got lots more living to do, so I can’t think of one reason why it shouldn’t be with you! Oh, and I come with Free Vet Care for Life!

Hi… my name is Callie,

Adopted 11-4-17

Play, play, play, sleep. Play, play, play, eat. Play, play, play, curl up in lap. Repeat. That pretty much sums up what I’m hoping my day will be like with you! When a lady ran into TALGV, said she’d driven two hours, plopped me down in my carrier and left, the volunteers were pretty stunned, so given that “grand entrance,” my past is quite a mystery! But what isn’t, is that I’m am one sweet, super inquisitive, and affectionate girl who somewhere along the line lost my right eye. That doesn’t stop me one bit though, and I’ve been entertaining visitors and volunteers alike with my antics, so if you let me do that for YOU, life couldn’t get any better for both of us!

Hi… my name is Kitz,

Adopted 9-10-17

It’s the dream of every cat to live the “Life of Riley,” but when that ends, it sometimes makes it a challenge to adapt to the changes. That’s what happened to my housemates, Fricker, Foophus, Daisy Mae, and me when my young dad died unexpectedly and there was no one to take us in. His mom said that although we’d lived “sheltered and spoiled” lives, we were very nice gentle cats who were just happy spending our days with each other and our person. I’m a lovely 6-year-old calico lady (who needs to shed a few pounds!), and although I know that I’ll never really “replace” my dad, there’s going to be a wonderful new someone who’ll let me enjoy the “good life” all over again!

Hi… my name is Chance,

Adopted with Dice 9-2-17

I guess someone had gambling on their mind when my littermates, Keno, Dice, Slots and I were named! We were just wee things when we arrived so went to live with a foster mom until we “made weight” and could come to TALGV to show off our wares (if you look real close, you’ll see a heart and a diamond on my right side, so I’m SURE to bring good luck!). Well, we’ve been languishing here for too long now because there’s just so much competition in the kitten department, but spend some time with any of us (hunker down and let us “do our purr thing” in your lap!), and you’ll wonder how we got overlooked! “Kitten” pretty much says it all, so why not take two ‘cause we’d be twice the fun!

Hi… my name is Patches,

Adopted 8-7-17

Yeah, I know, everyone loves cute little kids. Well meet the exception to that rule! I honestly tried, but they’re just too unpredictable and active for a fairly staid 8½-year-old lady like me. I did “tolerate” the dog and cat that I lived with, but at times I got a bit “snippy” with them too, so I guess I’m destined to be the sole companion of an older settled person who can appreciate me and my many charms “on my terms!” My mom lost her home and had to move in with her kids who have tons of toddlers, so my mission is to find a special someone who understands and loves the quirky ways of felines. I just know that’s you, so let’s have a friendly chat!

Hi… my name is Abigail,

Adopted 5-2-17

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 me and my real mom and her new kittens 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 a bit of a rough time in my short life, but I’m hopeful I can now get on with the business of just being the playful companion I’m meant to be. Won’t you give me a chance to do just that?

Hi… my name is Bella,

Adopted 4-8-17

Bella comes with FREE Vet Care for Life.

I know my mom would be happy knowing TALGV was caring for me and searching for just the right new home, because she was a long-time volunteer and knows how much compassion the caregivers have. At heart I’m an essentially shy lady with strangers, but with my person, I’m sweetness itself and a lady just looking for love. Everyone agrees that a home with an older, quiet person would be best (like my life with mom and my feline housemate), so if that describes you, won’t you consider me? Since I’m 14 years old now, I come with free vet care for life, and with beautiful looks and a serene personality what more do you need?

Hi… my name is Callie,

Adopted with Stella 3-7-17

I just want to know one thing: why is it that dogs often get to go with their owners when they move and we cats draw the short straw? I’d say that’s racial profiling, except my mom really did love me, so I guess maybe she didn’t have a choice. At any rate, my sister, Stella, and I are going to miss the family, but we’re both so enchanting, that I’m confident we’ll find new digs soon. Mom said, “Callie is very active, playful and loves mouse toys, and will come up to you to be petted (but lets you know when she’s had enough!).” If you ask me, that’s just typical cat behavior, so come take a gander at me, spend a little time, and let’s see what we can work out!

Hi… my name is Mandy,

Adopted 2-7-17

Mandy comes with Free Vet Care for Life.

After my mom died, her daughter wanted so badly to keep me, but one of her other cats (who she called “my neurotic Bengal!”) simply made my life miserable. She said, “Mandy deserves a better home than I can provide. She is a good kitty, loves to be brushed, eats only dry food, and always uses her litterbox. She loves to sit in a window (and if the window is open, that’s even better!), take long naps under a light blanket, and at her age deserves a loving home and a warm lap to sit on.” I’m a beautiful 14-year-old calico lady (with free vet care life) and have a sweet, affectionate nature, so won’t you let me spend the rest of my life making yours happy?
