Join us for an Open House at some of our cat foster homes on Monday, Jan 18 (Martin Luther King Jr. day). If interested, please fill out an application now, and you will be contacted with additional information, including locations of the participating foster homes. 

Participating Cats:


Harriet is such a funny girl! She currently lives with adult cats, a dog, and children, and she tries to keep up with what everybody is doing! If you are reading, she will try it too. If you are watching TV, she'll do that.


They call me Kiki and everyone says that I'm a real cutie! I'm still a little shy but my foster mom loves me lots so now I love to do yoga kitty stretches so she can rub me all over and even tickle my feet.


Erwin is a confident cat with a big personality! He enjoys interactive toys and loves being the center of attention. He is independent, but can be a lap cat at times, and enjoys assisting his foster mom at the computer. Erwin is assertive in going after what he wants, and may let you know if he does not think you are paying enough attention to him.


Max is a very sweet, friendly and lovable boy who will melt your heart when you meet him. He is just absolutely adorable and sweet, with a nice touch of mischeviousness added in! Max can be a talker, esp.

Andy Rooney

Andy Rooney, aka Andy is a loving, sweet and playful young lad, a great all around young cat who is always happy to see you. Andy is a talker and a toucher who likes to lay at your feet or perch where he can reach out and touch you.


Lily can be a cuddly snuggler or she can sometimes choose to go off on her own. Never fear, when dinner is near she will always be near! Lily shows her sweet and affectionate side which are always on her terms.

Mama Boo-Boo

'Mama' came to us with the name Boo-Boo. She was a great mom to a few of our kittens, and so became known as Mama Boo-Boo. Mama is a small kitty with delicate features. She is very gentle, loving and affectionate and always likes to see where you are and what you are doing.


Chester can be a bit shy at first with new people and cats. However, after a couple of weeks he settles in quite nicely to new surroundings. You will often find him sitting and looking out the window chirping at the squirles and birds or curled up on the couch with one of his foster siblings.(Anna,


Meeting Delta is a delightful and unforgettable experience. One look at her and you are immediately smitten with her gentle aura and striking good looks. Delta is a sweet and loving young lady who loves getting petted, brushed, and curling up with you to take a snooze.


Jax is an all around lover boy. His purr motor starts the moment he sees you and goes nonstop while jumping into your lap. He is a delightful kitten, extremely sweet, friendly, playful and affectionate. Whenever you sit down or take a nap, Jax will be right there with you, warming you like your personal arm wrap.


Beta is a very sweet, gentle and laid back gentleman. The only difference between Beta and other cats is that he has three legs instead of four which comes with an endearing hop when he walks! He does everything just as well as any other cat, including jumping up and down and using the litter box without any special props or assistance.


Nitika, aka Tika, is a very special girl, initially reserved until she gets to know you. She enjoys getting petted, stroked and loves it when you talk to her! She perks up when she hears your voice and will often talk back to you, getting up and stretching in hopes that you will come over to pet her.


Jude had a rough start in life. Separated from his mother very young, he was malnourished and very sick when he was rescued. With TLC, companionship from his foster siblings, and lots and lots of good food, he has bounced back! Jude may always be small but he is super sweet and playful.


Living with sweet and gentle Roxy aka Miss Lady, has been like watching a rosebud in bloom. She is a sweet and gentle soul who loves to be close to her human, giving nose bumps, sweet kisses or gently taking treats. Roxy enjoys sitting with you while you pet and brush her.

Did You Know: Cats use their whiskers to determine if the space they are entering is big enough for them.
