I have several wonderful cats to tell you about this week, including one long-time resident and one very wild and crazy kitten. I’m hoping you’ll fall in love and choose to make one of these felines a treasured family member.
Let’s get started.
Young Cat Lorcie
First up is this sweet white cat named Lorcie. She’s about 2 years old, and she has beautiful blue eyes. She thought my camera was pretty interesting, too.
Lorcie came to the shelter with a litter of kittens, and now that they’re all grown up, she is looking for a home of her own. We’re glad she is safe and done with life as a mom cat. It seems like her life wasn’t easy.
Lorcie should have a very long and wonderful tail, but half of hers is missing. What remains is kinked and curled from prior fractures. We’re not sure what happened to her, but we’re glad that part of her life is over.
Lorcie can be a tiny bit shy in the shelter, but she loves to be talked to and cuddled after proper introductions. She gets along nicely with other cats, and she seems interested in playing with her neighbors. We’re not sure how she feels about dogs.
Silly Kitten Harmony
Next up is an absolutely beautiful little kitten named Harmony. With her good looks and pretty ways, she should be long gone with the right family. And yet, she remains here at the shelter. She’s been waiting for a home since August 24. Let’s make this her last day in the shelter.
This kitty has personality plus. She’ll amaze you with her ability to wrestle with and subdue toys that are three times as big as she is. And if you have a wand toy, hold onto it tightly. She can slap that baby out of your hands with lightening speed. You must see it to believe it.
It’s hard for cats with so much energy to wait for homes in the shelter. She can’t wait to leave a kennel behind and join a loving family. But her new family must be devoted to playtime to keep this girl happy. Dedicated play sessions with you, and plenty of interactive toys for her alone time, will be crucial.
Harmony has lived with other cats, but she didn’t always get along with them. Her rough and rowdy play style is too much for some other cats. If you have a kitty that likes to play rough and tumble, she might be a good match. But if your cat is shy and retiring, it might not be love at first purr.
Harmony has met dogs, and she was afraid of them. She will need a slow introduction to dog friends, or she might like to avoid them as roommates.
We all love this busy little bee of a kitten (and her adorable play growls), and we’d love to see her go home soon. Can you help?
Long-Term Resident Liam
Next up is my favorite current shelter cat. His name is Liam, and he’s just over a year old. He’s been waiting for a home since August 2, and that makes his wait one of the longest in the shelter among our current cats.
In his home, Liam was described as mellow, easy going, and a lap cat. He loved to be picked up and cuddled. And he adored to play with toys and with other cats. He also really loved the kids in his family.
When he arrived, Liam was nervous and worried about shelter life. He tried to make himself intimidating, so people would avoid him. I’m happy to report that he has completely changed his ways during his long stay.
Now, Liam rolls and coos and purrs to entice people to spend time with him. He also plays with toys to show you how strong he is. He has a lovely little chirp and cheep for conversation, but he doesn’t mewl for attention all the time. If you’re busy, he will just wait for your return.
Liam has lived with other cats before, so he can join your crew with the proper introductions. He has no dog experience that we know of. He has been afraid of children, so he’ll either need kind human playmates or an adult-only home.
Senior Cat Jack
Next up is an adorable gent named Jack. He’s about 10 years old, and he really has a distinguished face, don’t you think?
Jack is a very chatty kitty that loves to hold conversations with his visitors. He seems to have quite a lot to say! He loves to be petted and cuddled, and he even allows families to pick him up during their visits.
Jack was a community cat for quite some time, but he got along nicely with the local cats and dogs. He also did fine with kind children.
It’s not clear how such a wonderful little cat became a stray cat living outside in the community. But it’s clear that someone loved him and treated him kindly during his early life. Let’s reward that and get him home today.
Sweet Cat Ramone
The last kitty I’ll share with you this week is also a senior at 8 years old. He’s a very pretty grey cat and wonderful piercing eyes.
It took a very long time to get this photo, as Ramone was much more interested in meeting me and getting petted than he was in posing for photos. He just absolutely adores people of all ages. He loves to be petted and cuddled, and he also likes to be picked up and carried from place to place. He’s a volunteer favorite, simply because he is so very affectionate.
Ramone has a sensitive digestive system, and he needs a specific food to stay healthy and happy. This is a mandatory diet, as he really does get sick if he eats something different. This is his only real demand.
We’re not sure if Ramone has lived with cats before. He lived with a dog once, but that pup had an active play style this kitty didn’t appreciate. If you have a dog, gentle introductions will be important.
That’s it for this week! If you see a cat you’re in love with, be sure to come down and say hello very soon. Cats get adopted quicker than you thought possible. And if adoption isn’t right for you, consider joining our Golden Hearts Club program! Your monthly donation will make happy endings possible. Find out more about it here.
Please note that this is the last cat blog for a few weeks, as I’ll be out of the office for a bit. But watch this space in late October, when I’ll have more cats to share!
