"My name is Patty and I'm a
paraplegic which means my back legs don't work well enough so that I can
stand up. They tell me I was stepped on as a little kitten. The nice
people at Polson Animal Clinic got me a cart so that I can run around the
clinic, but I can also pull myself around without my 'wheelchair'. The
folks here really like me; I'm very cute and loving and have just enough
sass to keep them on their toes. Will I get better? I don't know. They say
miracles happen, and in the meantime, I'm enjoying life.

||"Tuffy" is a special
needs kitty looking for a permanent home. He was found abandoned
at a rental home, and has tested positive for feline leukemia.
Tuffy is a great cat that LOVES attention. He will follow you
around from room to room and will sit on your lap and want to be petted.
He has a great personality and is always in a good mood. He is a
trooper that has been through a lot of neglect in his life, but he is on
a good path now and needs a loving home. I am willing to cover
future medical costs, including neutering and vaccinations. We are
in Houston, TX. Contact Alison: email@example.com

Fun facts about Puck!
He loves to be held upside down like a baby.
He is a purr machine.
He rolls over for belly rubs on command.
His foster mom works full time. He's fine being left alone during the
day and he's happy to be lying next to you when you are home. He's very
He has good littler box manners and eats like a champ!
Puck tested positive for FeLV with is feline leukemia. FeLV is usually
transmitted between infected cats when the transfer of saliva or nasal
secretions is involved. Cats with FeLV can live years... or they can live
Puck is otherwise healthy. And he's the sweetest cat you'll ever meet. He
deserves a chance! Puck is currently being fostered in a home with a few
other dogs. HE IS DOING GREAT! He loves dogs and people. He's a complete
We are looking for a home with a big heart to adopt our special needs
Puck. Maybe you have a FeLV positive cat and you need a buddy? Maybe you
want an only cat? Maybe you want a cat buddy to be friends with your
canine companion? If so, Puck would be happy to be considered!
We cannot place Puck in a home with other FeLV negative cat (s) or in a
home where he will be let outside.
Thanks for making adoption your first option and for considering PUCK!
||Our group recently took in Buster, an
ex-stray who tested FIV positive. He is a young cat - our vet is guessing
he was 10 months to a year old when rescued in June 2010. Buster shows no
signs of ill health and is actually more active than most cats who aren't
FIV positive! He loves people and will carefully "stand up" with
his front paws on visitors' legs so he can be petted more easily.
Originally Buster was rescued from a multi-story parking garage, as the
people who worked in the adjoining building asked for help. Buster was
obviously someone's pet at one time, as he actually kept trying to get
into people's cars and ride home with them.
Besides the FIV status, Buster's only other challenge is that he is
aggressive towards other male cats, even though he was neutered upon
arrival. However, he's a bit of a flirt with the female cats
and seems to have taken a shine to one in particular, washing her head
when she'll let him. He's cuddled up with her in his photo although she's
a bit hard to see.
Interested adoptors may call Buster's foster mom Linda at 214-356-9126, or
email her at firstname.lastname@example.org
||What a face! Just looking at this unique mug
should bring a smile to anyone's face. Chester is a real dapper
gentleman and has manners and tuxedo to match. He is quiet and
affectionate and he makes great company. Chester often hangs out with his
foster mom while she does chores around the house, simply providing
companionship while she works. What a great cat!
If the adoption does not work, at any point
in the cat's life, I will always take the cat back. Chester
is up-to-date with routine shots, house trained and neutered.
for a new Star in your sky? Well, look no further, here I
name is Star. I am a domestic short-hair with pretty green
eyes and am all black except for three white "lightening
bolts" on my right side. These came from a very bad fight I
had a while ago. I am about two years old, and was once someone's
pet a long time ago. I either ran away or was abandoned. I
have never been microchipped. I am spayed and am now up-to-date on
my shots. Just last week, I adopted a family in Kailua, Oahu,
Hawaii, and they were nice enough to bring me into their house during a
rain storm. I have a sweet personality, I love to be loved and
love people and other cats. My adopted family would have liked to
keep me, but they have other cats, and I tested positive for FIV
(probably from that bad fight that left me with the "lightening
bolts"). I am otherwise healthy and happy. During
my time out in the wild, I lost some teeth so I have a hard time eating
kibble; I prefer canned food or kibble softened with water.
I am great in the litterbox. I love to play and make friends.
Because I was outside for a while, although I am EXTREMELY people
friendly and will come up to you for love and spend time in your lap, it
takes me a little while before I am comfortable with new friends
carrying me. I am looking for my new forever home with other FIV
positive cats or as your one and only Star.
you would like to adopt me, please contact Lahela Hite at email@example.com with
your contact information and put "Star" in the subject
line. My adopted sister will take it from there.
|Sergent Pepper was
relinquished by his family when they lost their home, but this young
four year old was obviously very much loved. He is very cuddly and
affectionate, loves to play and have his belly rubbed and revels in
human attention. As you can see, he is also as handsome as a cat can be.
He would thrive as an indoor only, single pet for the loving, big
hearted companion or family who adopts him.
He is negative for felv but has tested
positive for fiv. He is otherwise very healthy, up to date with routine
shots and micro chipped and neutered.

- Needs to be OUTDOOR Cats
Lucas is a beautiful sweet 8-year
old, neutered, flamepoint siamese. He is partially incontinent
from a tail-pull injury when he got outside a couple of 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 it doesn't seem like he can feel or move the
lower 2/3. He has improved since his initial injury, but it appears he
will never fully recover full use of his tail or bladder control.
I never considered putting him down,
because he's a wonderful cat and completely healthy otherwise, as
far as I know. He just pees sometimes in the "wrong"
places. He is a total loverboy sweetheart. He's pretty easygoing. He
tolerates dogs and gets along well with most other cats. 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
If you are interested in Lucas, email me
I am in the Houston area, but willing to drive a
reasonable distance for the right home.
||Broadway, Male Neutered, 5 pounds,
very playful, active, loving kitten, loves other cats, dogs, people
Broadway is a playful gray and white kitten who loves to be around
people and other cats. He's a unique little guy, with six toes on each
of his front paws. He's also part Manx, and was born without a tail.
Because of his shortened spine, the nerves around his rear end didn't
develop properly so sometimes he has trouble making it to the litterbox!
:) Otherwise, he's a healthy, active kitten who enjoys a good game of
soccer with his favorite toy.

||Meet Scooter - I am about 1 year
old and I weigh about 4.7 lbs. Both of my rear legs have been broken in
several places. They were untreated breaks have caused them to fuse
(start healing) back without giving me movement in the knees. My back
legs do not bend in the middle. I can stand but choose not to much. I
might more once the injuries heal more and I become stronger. Animals
learn to work with what they have as you have seen many times I am sure.
I am slightly underweight but trying to find food as an injured
stray was really hard to do. I DO get in and out of my litter box but it
takes me a minute or so but I am NOT messy in my cage at all. I
would be great in a wheeling unit or a single story home. As I
mentioned, I do get around and wish more than anything that I find a
loving home. If you would like more information on Scooter, you can

|Female tabby (unusual "marble"
marking pattern instead of the traditional "stripes" most
Age: about 3 years
Size: 5 pounds 4 ounces (her illness has stunted her growth and
so she will not become any larger)
Personality: VERY loving and playful, shy around strangers but
warms up quickly to them
Likes: Cat nip (small amounts), laser pointer, balls of paper,
string (watch your shoe laces!)
Tricks: Will sit on command for a treat
Shots: up to date
Spayed: No (Her weak immune system due to her illness has made us
afraid of having any operations done on her so she must be kept inside
at all times.)
De-clawed: No (She is good about using those cardboard scratching
*Disabilities: Feline Herpes, an eating disorder, chronic ear
Rain was very sick when rescued. I took her to the vet and was
told that she has Feline Herpes. The vet explained that they can have
"flair ups" when highly stressed. That was her only flair up,
it has remained dormant in her for the three years I've had her. Feline
Herpes is highly contagious to other cats and so she cannot be exposed
to healthy cats. She also has an eating disorder. Her brain does not
register when she is full so she will continue to eat whatever food is
out for her until her body vomits it up. By simply controlling her food
intake this can be avoided. She eats about 1/8 cup of food three to four
times a day. Any larger portion of food will make her sick. Rain also
suffers from chronic ear infections. There is nothing that can be done
except to treat it when she gets one.

Age: about 3 years

Tricks: Will sit on command for a treat

De-clawed: front paws ARE De-clawed, back ones are NOT
*Disabilities: Feline Herpes, litter box challenged
Chuck Norris has Feline Herpes. He contracted it by being around Rain
before we found out she had the virus herself. He cannot be around
healthy cats in order to keep from spreading the virus to them. Had one
"flair up" when he first contracted the virus but the virus
has laid dormant since then and he has never had a "flair up"
since. Chuck Norris was abandoned at birth and so struggled to
understand the concept of a litter box due to not having a mother cat to
teach him. We find that using Cat Attract litter works on keeping him
using the litter box, however, it must be cleaned DAILY or else he will
not use it. He must have a responsible owner who will do this task.
|IMPORTANT: Both cats have
a phobia of water!!! This is not a regular "cats hate
water" thing, this is a real phobia. Avoid giving baths and wash
them with pet powders or wet towels instead.
My cats have been raised with each other. I would prefer them to be
adopted into a home together but will allow them to be adopted
separately if a home for both cannot be found. I'd rather them live
apart than die in a shelter. My husband and I have no children so they
have never been around children. I would recommend a home that has
either a single couple family or else has older children who are
responsible with cats and know how to act around them. They have never
seen a dog before so I cannot say how they would act in a family with a
dog. Their personalities though are laid back for the most part. Both
love to snuggle and sleep with me every night. On a personal note: These
cats are my babies. Having to find them a new home is ripping me apart
but I cannot let my marriage end over them either. I beg of you to help
me in whatever way you can. If I cannot keep them then I just want to
know they are in a safe and loving home!

Angie is a gorgeous pure white long
haired cat with blue eyes, almost the color of the cat bed in the
picture. She is around 7-8 years old, spayed, fully vaccinated,
FELV/FIV negative, has had a dental and blood work to make sure she is
healthy. She is loving and sweet, and good with cats & dogs. She is
fully vetted, has had a dental, all shots, and has become very used to
other animals. She loves to be petted now, although she still startles
easily because of her lack of hearing. She is a really sweet 7-8 ish
girl, who is no trouble at all. Uses the box perfectly and likes
water with ice in it! She would love a home where she got lots of
attention. She had to learn to snuggle A quiet
adult home would be perfect. We are willing to transport, and my email

||Charity – DOB 5/26/10 – Female
My name is Charity. My mom, Mercy, was rescued before we were born.
My sisters, Faith & Hope, were born with me, and our foster mom took
great care of us. When we were big enough to start walking around,
the vet noticed we have luxating patellas. That means our kneecaps
sometimes pop in and out. It doesn’t slow us down a bit! I
may need an operation when I’m an adult, but the vet said we might not
need anything done at all! I’m looking for that special home that
understands I may not be able to jump up on things like some kitties do,
and would give me the operation – if I need it – when I’m full
grown. I've been FIV/FELV tested, spayed, microchipped, and vaccinated. If
you would like to know more about me, please contact Karen at email@example.com
or call 314-638-5128. Located in St Louis
Tony is a 6 yrs old neutered tuxedo
cat. We do not know how he lost part of his leg. He was being fed by a
person in their yard and they decided they didn't want him because he
had a diarrhea problem. We put him on raw food diet which stopped the diarrhea.
If he is adopted he will have to be on a raw diet so he has normal bowel
movements. He also does not like other cats or dogs he will attack them.
He loves people and is so sweet and loving.
