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 felines.bchs@gmail.com 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 felines.bchs@gmail.com with questions.

ARISTOTLE- Aristotle has been with us since February 5, 2013. This gorgeous white kitty is having trouble finding a home for one reason: He is positive for Feline Leukemia Virus. But this is no reason to overlook him! He is about 4 years old and very sweet. He loves to play, cuddle, and investigate everything. His deepest, most sincere wish is that one special person will look past his illness and see him for what he really is: an awesome cat, with lots of love to give! Aristotle has a reduced adoption fee to help him find his forever home

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 twriter@fastmail.net . 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.

Located in Waynesboro, PA.

Thank you!

Marti is a very affectionate older cat (age unknown). She suffered an unknown spinal or neurological injury that has resulted in her not being able to use her back legs properly. She walks with a wobble and has difficulty jumping up and down from places, though this does not stop her from trying! She is also nearly deaf and sometimes meows quite loudly. Marti uses the litter box, but needs a box with a low rim so that she can get in and out easily. I took Marti in when a neighbor found her, but unfortunately she has to remain in the basement because of my resident cat who has not accepted her and “hunts” her when she is out. I assume her disability makes her look like an easy target. If you are looking for a cat who will give you lots of love and attention, she is the girl for you.

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.

It is evident that Lyla has had a hard life. She was abandoned on the doorstep of the shelter and it was quickly discovered that she only has three legs. Lyla is missing her rear right leg but she doesn't let her disability stop her. She is sweet, intelligent, and would make an excellent lap cat. She wants to be pampered and spoiled and in return she will give you a lifetime of love and happiness. Lyla also has diabetes. 
Lyla's disability makes her special needs. She may need help getting up and down stairs and getting on and off of furniture but this is nothing when you see the love and wonderful companionship she has to offer you! She has been spayed, front declawed, vaccinated, and is likely around 4 years old.

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. He loves other cats - recently his buddy at the shelter was adopted.
