|Maddie is a 5 month old beautiful
longhair kitten with quite the extraordinary disability. You see, Maddie
suffered some sort of crushing injury to her spine when she was about 3
weeks old. This has prevented her from using her back legs but doesn't
stop her from getting where she wants to go! Maddie is a spunky,
playful, loving little girl who enjoys playing with dogs and cats alike.
Climbing onto the couch and into the cat tree are among Maddie's finer
moments, proving that she refuses to allow her disability to define her.
She is very well behaved for her daily
baths and grooming sessions, which are a requirement as she isn't able
to use a litter box and has little to no control over her excretory
functions. Her adoptive family would need to learn how to help Maddie
express her bladder (your vet can show you this quite easily, and she is
used to this in foster care) and perhaps wear diapers to help keep her
She is currently pretty small for diapers
and eventually wriggles out of even the tiniest of sizes, but she is
very patient during the putting-on and taking-off process. She has a
very loud motor-like purr and gets very excited to see her people. She
will require a patient and understanding home but I promise -- you won't
regret adopting Maddie!

||SPECIAL NEEDS: Meet Beeber!
Someone in my neighborhood contacted me stating they had a cat who had
problems with his eyes, and they needed help. When I arrived and saw his
eyes I knew without a doubt nothing could be done; however, I took him
to the veterinarian who confirmed my fears.
He also tested FIV positive but don't let
this scare you! FIV can only be passed through cat-to cat transmission
usually through a bite wound or a scratch, and Beeber has never bit or
scratched, and occasional transmission at the time of birth. I contacted
the owner to let them know the outcome, and they said they didn't want
him back, so I took him in. He's a wonderful 1-2 year old neutered male
who is up to date on his rabies shot. He sees shadows and does very well
in the home. He is super loving and very friendly. He honestly doesn't
let his vision problem affect his life. His personality shines every day
in how sweet he can be, and he shows how even with a disability you can
persevere and lead a wonderful and happy life!
Please contact Dawna Dove at 540-820-3358
if you are interested in providing Beeber a "fur"ever loving home.

||PERRY - Perry is a light
orange tabby kitten close to a year old. He doesn't mind entertaining
himself, but enjoys company for a nice scratch behind the ears and
cuddles. When it comes to relationships, he's a patient guy who doesn't
leap in paws first, if you know what I mean. With a little time he will
bond with you through playtime. Perry loves to explore and find new
toys. He's around a year old and will bring you years of happiness. Perry
is positive for Feline Leukemia. Please do your research before
adopting. Perry has been retested and is FLV/FIV NEGATIVE! All adoptions include spay/neuter, vaccinations, microchip,
and testing. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
||DEVIN - Devin is an adorable
orange tabby kitten overflowing with love to share! He is around 6months
old and knows how to make a toy out of anything: pencils, post-it notes,
potatoes. If you're looking for some laughs and someone to liven up the
party, think about inviting Devin. He is an adventurous cat, but he'll
always make time for cuddles! Devin has tested positive for Feline
Leukemia. Please do your research before adopting. All adoptions
include spay/neuter, vaccinations, microchip, and testing. Please
||Hey, I'm Eddie! Let's PLAY!
Playing is my favorite thing to do, next to being petted and gettin'
loved on. The shelter staff and volunteers think I'm the greatest 'cause
I've got a really outgoing personality, AND I'm good with kids, AND I'm
not shy at all! I'm young, too; only 2 years old. I think the only thing
holding people back from adopting me is 'cause I've got "FIV", but all
that means is I might need to visit a vet a little more often than some
cats, even though I'm real healthy right now. I dunno about all that, I
just know I want to get out of this cage and get some play time in! I
also want someone to cuddle with. Hey, can you come visit me some time?
I'll show you all my favorite toys! By the way, I was found as a stray
in Burlington Township, so if you see my former owners around, let them
know I'm here...
This cat has tested positive for Feline
Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV). FIV+ cats can live long, happy and healthy
lives without medical intervention. FIV can not be transmitted to people
or other non-cat animals, and it is only transmitted between cats
through serious bites. FIV+ cats are more difficult to find homes for
because people are intimidated by this condition, but we encourage you
to talk to your vet about FIV to see if your home is right for this cat!

Jack and Diane were abandoned as babies on the side of the
road. One of our doctors rescued them. Jack and Diane are now
approximately 16 weeks old. Both kittens are siblings. They are
spayed/neutered and fully vaccinated. Sadly, when we had them at the
hospital for routine veterinary care, they both tested positive for
This means they must live in a home with no other cats. There is a
slim chance they could develop FIP which is fatal. However, chances are
very, very good they will live a normal life. The virus is not
contagious to any other species but cats.
Loving Touch Animal Hospital in Stafford County, VA, will provide
free veterinary care for a year to anyone who adopts these babies.
These poor babies need someone with a big heart and a loving indoor
home to allow them to have a family for Christmas and for always. There
is no greater calling than saving the lives of two innocent creatures.
Could you be that special person with a huge heart for animals?

||Lucas is a beautiful, sweet, mature,
neutered, flamepoint siamese. He is partially incontinent from a tail-pull
injury when he got outside several years ago. He has nerve damage at the
base of his spine. His tail is intact, but he can only lift it partway.
The vet felt leaving his tail intact would be fine, although he can
probably not feel or move the lower 2/3. He has improved a lot since his
initial injury; however, it appears he will never recover full use of his
tail or bladder control. He's a wonderful cat and otherwise is completely
healthy according to tests that were done to check. He is good about
pooping in the litter box. He just pees sometimes in the "wrong"
He's pretty easygoing. He tolerates dogs
and gets along well with most other cats. He loves attention, and he'll
"talk" to you and give you head bumps and "kisses". He
really wants to be outdoors to enjoy the sunshine and roll in the grass.
I'd love to find him a home where he can be safely outdoors either in a
safe yard or a large enclosure. Contact me if you think he's a good fit
for you, and you would truly love and take good care of him for the rest
of his days. I don't want him to be a reclusive barn cat, but a part of a
loving family, which is what he truly loves.
If you are interested in Lucas, email me at
firstname.lastname@example.org . I am in
the Houston area, but willing to drive a reasonable distance for the right
||Kiwi - The sweetest cat you'll ever
meet. 1 year old male domestic long hair with tuxedo fur. Kiwi was shot
several times before he was picked up by the local shelter. One bullet
became lodged in his spine, causing urinary and fecal incontinence. We
currently do not have the means to pay for the additional expenses that
come with these problems--changing diapers and the like. We hope that
someone out there has it in their heart to adopt this loving, deserving
kitten. He has been neutered and has all his shots. Please contact ASAP.

||Queenie is a two and a half
year old, gray/brown tabby Manx who is extremely playful, loving and
talkative when she gets to know you. She will come to you wherever you
are and meow at you until you love on her and she will roll over to show
you her belly and nudge your hands when you stop petting. She loves
playing with strings like any other cat and likes to chew on cords so
you have to keep track of things like headphones and charger cords.
she loves her scratching trees and when she stretches her butt wiggles
which is one of the cutest things you could see. She often likes to
hide in small dark places like closets and under beds. She is skittish
of knew people and animals but warms up fairly quickly to just about
everyone and loves to snuggle with other animals and will often follow
them around and play with them. She was born with Manx syndrome which
is a genetic condition that causes the spine to grow short causing a
short or lack of tail in the Manx breed and often causes defects where
the spine does not grow to the end of the back and so the nervous system
does not connect to the hind quarters. Queenie's spine extends far
enough for her to have minimal control of her hind legs which allows her
to move around easily but makes her hop like a bunny rather than walk.
She has very little to no control over her bladder and bowels and so she
often has accidents while she is sleeping or walking around the house.
She often knows when she is going to the bathroom or has gone to the
bathroom and she will try to bury it wherever it happened or sometimes
she will try and get to the litter box. I have recently become unable
to provide her with the care she needs and deserves and she needs a
loving and patient owner who has the time and means to care for her.
|My name is Austin Frisk and
live in Modesto, CA and I can be contacted by email at
by phone at 209-846-4009, calls and text are okay. Please do research
on Manx syndrome so you know as much as you can and are prepared to take
care of a cat with those needs and love her for the rest of her life.
Cats - Sight problems
|Just over 6 month old brothers Verny
and Sammy are in need of a forever home after being rescued from a
neglectful situation. When they were only 4 weeks old their whole litter
got very sick yet they were neglected and the necessary medication that
could of easily helped them was not given to them.
After being nursed back to health they
are now happy and healthy kitties. Sadly due to the neglect Verny is
blind in both eyes and Sammy is blind in one eye. They do not require
any special medications or on going treatments. Despite their rough
start they are playful kittens, full of love. They are tolerant of
children and enjoy playing with other cats.
Verny (the long-hair) is very curious,
and loves to explore new places. Sammy (the short-hair) is always shy in
the beginning, but once he becomes comfortable with the environment, he
will be more affectionate and cuddly than Verny. Verny loves to play
with toys - any toys that crinkle are an immediate attraction for him,
and he is even talented at chasing a toy on the string, as long as he
can hear it dragging over the carpet or floor. Sammy likes to knead soft
blankets, chase the laser-pointer, and is a cuddly lap cat.

|Tri-Sox is a 2 year old female
that was a feral up to about a 10 months old. I began feeding her as a
stray and noticed her limping one day. Two months of regular trips to
the Vet and it was determined that medical concerns required removal of
her leg. The infection would not respond to treatment and it was feared
it would spread, endangering her life.
It was a very hard a decision but the
right one...she is now healthy (she does not know she is handicapped : )
, neutered and has been indoors for nearly a year and has become quite
social. She begs to be pet, jumps in my lap and even started purring
recently when pet...
She is great company and deserves a forever
home. I am losing my space and need to find her a home.

||Hope is a three year old gray tabby
that is very sweet and loving. She was separated from her mother at a
very young age and now has a problem with chewing on available fabric.
We've kept her separate by keeping her in a cat condo and letting her
out when we're around to keep an eye on her.
She's very loving and sweet, and always
wants cuddles. She's been raised around other cats and a dog. She's been
raised indoors only.
