This week’s cat blog is full of supermodels. Almost every kitty I photographed had exceptional camera skills. Get ready to lose your heart to adoptable adult cats (and one young kitty on the cusp of adulthood).
Let’s get started!
Young Cat Speckles
First up is an adorable 11-month-old female cat named Speckles. She thought my camera was really fascinating. Look at her huge pupils!
Speckles is a very calm little kitty. Most cats her age are rambunctious in their kennels, and they spend their days running and leaping and playing. Speckles is different. She watches all of the traffic going by without making much fuss. Often, she has one little curled paw beneath her body. It’s adorable.
Speckles has been described as a timid cat, but she warms up to new people quite quickly. She allows for full-body pets and cuddles, and she has a purr you can’t quite believe. Speckles gets along nicely with other cats, but we’re not sure about her history with dogs.
Young cats tend to go quickly. If you’re interested in her, please come soon!
Playful Cat Sinatra
Do playful, opinionated kitties make your heart sing? Prepare to fall in love with 1-year-old Sinatra. This cat could be just what you’ve been searching for.
Sinatra is a dramatic flopper. When he thinks you’re not going to pet him or play with him, he throws himself down on his bed like this with a dramatic sigh. If you keep ignoring him, he’ll try to climb up your legs or jump up into your arms.
Sinatra is very playful, and he does like to run and jump. Wand toys make him extremely happy, and he has really enjoyed our catio at the shelter. Sunbathing is one of his special skills.
Sinatra can also be a little sassy, and he has been known to express a few opinions with his teeth. (He’s sorry!) He will need an understanding family that will use positive training methods to help him learn to trust. He tends to get really flashy when he thinks you’re about to punish him, so positive training will be very important to his future. We can tell you more about that.
Sinatra can get along with other cats quite nicely. He has very good manners. But we don’t think he’s ever lived with dogs or kids before. Since he can nip, kids might not be the best choice for him.
Can you take this guy home?
Gorgeous Cat Ira
I adore brown tabbies, and we have a beautiful girl in the shelter right now. Her name is Ira, and she’s about 4 years old.
Ira came to the shelter due to an owner illness, and we didn’t get a detailed history about her past. That means we’re not sure if she’s lived with dogs or kids. She is living in a suite with other cats now and is doing well, so we can say that she does nicely with almost all cats.
Ira is sensitive, and she doesn’t enjoy shelter life. She tends to stick to her perch and stay there, and that means she isn’t easy for people to meet. We’re hoping that a family with shy cat experience can take a chance on this girl and give her the happy ending she so deserves. She will probably need a bit of time to adjust to your home, and she may never be an adventure cat. But she will repay your kindness with so much love.
Can you help her?
Senior Cat Mittens
Next up is 10-year-old tuxedo kitty Mittens. He is absolutely adorable, and he’s so well behaved too!
Mittens was part of our foster community for quite a few months, and we were all thrilled when he was adopted. But allergies brought him back to us. His family reported that he was a perfect cat, but the health issue was too severe for them to deal with.
Mittens has been described as talkative, chatty, and a lap cat. He gets along nicely with other cats, but he has no history of life with dogs.
Mittens does have an ongoing urinary issue and will need a special diet to keep him healthy. But that’s his only real concern.
Can you give this special senior his happy ever after?
That’s it for this week! If you see a kitty on here you love, come down to visit. They go faster than you might think is possible! And if you don’t find someone you love, remember: This is just a sample of the cats we’re trying to find homes for. There’s bound to be love within our walls.
