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 with questions.

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 contact with questions.

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!  Located in Burlington Cty NJ

Incontinence - May Need to be OUTDOOR Cats
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" places.

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 . I am in the Houston area, but willing to drive a reasonable distance for the right home.

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.

Hi - my name is Peter, and I'm a special guy looking for a special home. I'm a big guy with a big personality! I'm a love bug with a loud purr and a powerful head butt. I like to be petted and will lay next to you for rubs for a long time. I have a cute little high pitched meow that seems out of character with my tough guy exterior. I still have a bit of kitten left in me and I like to play. I love to be brushed. After a careful introduction, I am getting along well with the resident cats and dogs in my foster home and I am good with kids. I am a little overweight, but slimming down nicely with limited quantities of wet food daily.

Sadly, I have hit a rough patch lately. My tail was recently amputated, and I have a cute little nub left to wave around. I have some residual neurologic issues associated with the tail injury, and can leak a little urine at times. I use the litter box appropriately, but can also dribble a bit where I am sleeping. My foster mom hopes that I will improve with medication and/or acupuncture therapy. I also have an eye injury that has been slow to heal. I will need to be evaluated by an ophthalmologist. I'm a great cat with a great personality that is waiting for the right home. I'm still a young guy with a long life ahead of me. I will need someone that will be patient and give me all of the love and attention that I deserve.

Cats with Minor Disabilities - Skiddish, Diabetic, physical imperfections,  etc

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.
