Hi…my name is Gypsy,

Anyone familiar with the “big-eyed waif” art of Margaret Keane will recognize me immediately! And indeed a “waif” I was! A couple headed for emergency care saw me sitting by the side of the road and despite their hurry, scooped me up and dropped me off here on the way (thank you, nice people!). I think maybe because I’m so slim (that’s a euphemism for “skinny”!) my eyes really do pop, but that just makes me all the more striking. Add to that my almost-black torti coat (there really is some orange in there!) and you have a girl who’ll knock your socks off when she’s filled out and “all growed!” This would be the perfect time to take me home and let that happen!

Hi… my name is Savannah,

Comes with Free Vet Care for Life

It’s pretty obvious that my mom was fond of torties ‘cause she had three of us! And despite what you might have heard about standoffish “tortitude,” we’re all just as loving and affectionate as can be. Oh, we’re pretty frightened at the moment since mom went into a skilled nursing facility and our lives have been turned upside down, but just sit and spend some time with us and you’ll see how much attention and petting we really crave. I’m a 15-year old lady who comes with free vet care, so it sure would be grand if you’d take me home (maybe with one of my housemates?) and let me get back to the important business of being your constant companion.

Hi… my name is Sophia,

Adopted with Gracie 3-4-17

Sophia comes with Free Vet Care for Life

In my “first life,” I lived with my friend, Gracie, 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 14 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 Priscilla,

Priscilla comes with FREE Vet Care for Life!

When my mom gave my housemate, Fluffy, and me to her friend when she moved, she thought I’d be able to stay forever, but the three resident cats immediately got their collective noses out of joint, so we only got to stay for a week. Since we’d lived with other cats and a dog before, Fluffy and I really tried to make friends, but it was just a “no go.” I’m a 12-year-old lady (so I come with Free Vet Care for Life!). My foster mom said that I’m on the shy side but loving nonetheless (that seems to be a trait of a lot of torties!), so I’d like to propose a merger, one that will yield great rewards for us both!

Hi… my name is Penny,

Adopted 2-27-17

I hear through the grapevine that there are quite a few stray cats out there days (we felines are supposed to be indoor only critters, ‘cause it’s a big dangerous world out there)! Well, I was one, too, but now that I’ve been rescued, I’m hoping I can find a nice, safe, loving home, and I promise that I’ll never want to stray again! As with all foundlings, it’s hard to know what kind of life I’ve led before, but I’m sure that in the future, I’ll let you know every day that I’m happy to be “off the streets” and hunkering down with you. At just 4 years old, I’ve got lots of livin’ and lovin’ to do, so let’s do it together!

Hi… my name is Kami,

Adopted with Kaze 10-23-16

Humans can be pretty hard to understand sometimes! My family (mom, pop, kids, and dog) moved out of state a while back and left my brother, Kaze, and me in the yard! We’d all gotten along so well, so I said, “Hey guys, you forgot us,” but I guess they didn’t hear me. Fortunately, the neighbors minded us for a while (they said, “They came to us for love and food,”) but they couldn’t keep us, so now we’re looking for a family that will cherish us for the sweethearts we are (and never, ever dream of leaving us behind!). I’m a 5-month-old torti girl who’d love to stay with my brother, but if not, I’ll be happy to grace your life alone.

Hi… my name is Avila,

My mom said I earned my name because I’m a devoted-to-my-person kind of lady and really can be a true “shadow”! (Avila was my name here at TALGV when I was adopted almost three years ago.) Unfortunately, when my dad died, mom really needed to try to get some semblance of order in her life and because of health problems, could no longer care for me like she had before. In my first home, my people trained me to sleep in a crate and I was okay with that, but I’ve learned to much prefer cuddling up with a human at night, so if you’re the kind of older, quite person (no little kids or wimpy dogs, please!) who likes a “bed buddy,” I’m made for you!
