Miss ‘East’  came to our shelter in July of 2023 in rough condition. She was malnourished, dehydrated, and appeared to have given birth not long before she came to us. It has taken her a while to be well again, but she is now thriving. She is shy at first, but always happy to have her head scratched. She will meow and “chirp” (adorable) when she wants some attention. We are estimating her age to be between three and five years old.


Ladies and Gentlemen, meet our sweet ‘Stevie’! Named after the fabulous Stevie Nicks, our “Stevie” is quite the songbird herself. She rushes to greet you, singing away as you enter our community room, where she lives. She will happily stay right by your side until she hears the jingle or crinkle of a toy – then run as fast as she can to get it!

“Stevie” came to our shelter back in May from a bad situation, along with her four babies, who have all since been adopted. She is about two and a half years old and ready to live her best life in a wonderful and loving home.
