We have a volunteer that will follow-up on these listings on a regular basis.  If you do NOT respond to the "status request" - your listing will be automatically removed.  It's not fair to individuals that are interested in helping the cats listed here - and not have any response to inquiries.  Thank you.

Incontinence - 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 truly loves.
 
If you are interested in Lucas, email me at twriter@fastmail.net. I am in the Houston area, but willing to drive a reasonable distance for the right home.

Blind Cats - Sight problems

Every now and then we rescue a kitty who's story is so special that we want to shout it from the rooftops - and Stevie and Ray are two such kitties! Incredibly adorable little Russian Blue cats, these brothers are cute and cuddly twins with beautiful soft blue-grey coats. Only upon closer inspection will you see that these kittens are different from other kitties - Ray was born with no sight, and Stevie has just limited sight in one eye. Although it would seem that a blind cat would have a very sad and difficult life, these little guys prove that nothing could be further from the truth!

These kittens are unaware that they are in any way different from other kitties, and once they become familiar with their surroundings, they act like other kittens with perfect sight! They love to frolic, wrestle and chase each other around, enjoy playing with their many toys, and they LOVE to eat! They are very aware of their litter box and are experts in its use! If you've read the book "Homer's Odyssey" by Gwen Cooper or viewed "Oskar the Blind Kitten" on You Tube, you will already know that a blind kitty can be a fabulous companion pet, and these boys are more than willing to offer you a double dose of unconditional love! 

If you would like to consider giving these special little angels a wonderful life in your happy home, please contact us by email at catsinneedfullerton@yahoo.com or by phone at (714) 315-8259 and we'll fill you in on their details and make the introductions. Perhaps you'd be interested in adopting both of these darling siblings! This very special duo would be a terrific addition to a compassionate, animal-loving family!)

Meriweather: One year old, Domestic Medium Hair, Neutered Male

Looking for that best friend to cuddle with on long cold nights, spend the days lounging around, and fill your heart with never ending love.  Meriweather is the cat you have been looking for.  This outgoing guy loves to be held and nap on your lap.  Being a cat, he is also independent, playful and will curl up in the most wonderful hiding spaces that you never even knew you had in your home.  Meriweather does have some medical issues which cause him to move suddenly, this may startle other pets or people who are not used to his behavior.  He also loves to make a mess out of any food he gets.  These issues do not deter him and he is active and outgoing. Merriweather is a wonderful boy who is looking for his perfect and loving furever 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 is rchshumane@yahoo.com. Thank you so much for your help! (Angie is Deaf)
