It’s raining cats and kittens and there’s no end in sight. If you have been thinking about adding a feline friend to your home, we’ve got oodles of cats and kittens. We’d like to introduce you to a few right now.


Rae – Our sweet Rae is just over a year old, with the cutest personality. She loves to play, but most of all she loves attention. She will keep you guessing what she’s going to do next. We tried her in our cageless community room, but it stressed her out too much with all the chaos, so she will need to live in a quieter home. She doesn’t seem to mind cats, but we don’t think she would do well with dogs.


Iris – Beautiful Iris is a big lovebug. If you are looking for a cuddler, she’s your gal. She’s an older kitty who would so appreciate being in a home again. You could look at this expression every day and wonder just what she is judging you about today. No matter what it is, she will love you anyway. If you need a best friend, Iris would love to apply for the job.


Wiggles – Wiggles is a super cute lady who came to us as a surrender in early March due to no fault of her own. She is about three and a half years old and as full of life as she can get. She can be temperamental and doesn’t like the company of cats, dogs, or children. This zesty girl would do best in a home where she can do her own thing and have things to climb (she loves to sit up as high as she can.) We think she may thrive in a barn setting where she can do her own thing but still have some human interaction.

Visit Rae, Iris, Wiggles, and our other cats during our open hours or by appointment. Fill out our application at to get preapproved.
