Participating Cats:


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.


Kaitlyn is sweet, gentle, and very friendly. She is currently in a foster home with her (already weaned) kittens, a dog, and human children, and she loves everybody. She especially likes to snuggle with the kids while they work on homework, but she also likes to play along with the frolicking kittens.

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.


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.


Jude is a sweet, quiet boy who is just starting to come out of his shell after a very tough time. He loves to sit in your lap while watching the other kittens tumble. This lovely kitten always appreciates your company and will let you hear his rumbly purr after cuddling for a while.


Paco is Mia's big brother, just starting to grow into his paws. He's very spunky and still has his kitten energy but I think he's going to be a big lapcat when he grows up. He is an absolute lovebug and starts purring the moment he is with a person.


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.

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.


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.


Chippe is a sweet and well behaved boy, quiet and unassuming with a very gentle disposition. He is happiest when getting attention from his person and he always enjoys curlng up and taking naps with his foster mom. Chippe is a friendly, playful and affectionate kitten who is very aware of everything going on around him.


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.


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.


Noah is an amazing little boy. He is shy and timid at first but does great once he gets to know you. He loves looking out the window at birds and squirrels. He can also be found running around with his foster siblings or curled up with them on the couch.

Queen Elsa

Elsa is such a warm and loving girl. She starts purring as soon as you pick her up. When she isn't running around playing with her brother and sisters, she can be found snuggled up with her 4 year old foster sister of the human variety.


Chino is a sweet, friendly and affectionate young cat who is always happy to see you. She enjoys getting attention and lots of pets and cuddles from her human. Chino can be an independent girl but don't let that fool you.


Saddie is such a snuggle bug. If you're looking for a lap cat, she's your girl! She would love to curl up in you lap and purr away. She also enjoys the company of her siblings and foster siblings and would like to find a home with one of them (Queen Elsa, Anna, Logan, Noah and Chester).


Simi, fondly called Yoga Kitty, loves rolling and stretching from side to side, just as if he's doing yoga!, Simi is a sweet, gentle and affectionate kitty who enjoys getting petted and loved on. He will always take time to let his foster mom when he wants special attention and lap time.


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.


Sean is a super-friendly, confident cat, who loves everyone he meets. He is very active, and likes to play with dangly toys. He has gained weight rapidly since he started getting regular meals, and will need to be fed measured meals so he does not get overweight.


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,


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.


Harriet is a sweetheart! She is a bit less rambunctious than the slightly older kittens she's being fostered with, but she is so sweet and gentle. She lives with kittens, adult cats, a dog, and kids, and she's accustomed to everybody, but she doesn't like the dog much.


Duncan is a friendly boy who loves attention. He likes to greet you at the door when you come home. Duncan LOVES to play. He will run as fast as he can to chase a feather toy when you wave it around.


Mia is Paco's adventuresome little sister. She loves people, always comes to greet you and likes to be near you, but she is most excited about playing with a new toy or figuring out how to climb the bookshelf. She was the littlest of the litter but with three brothers she can hold her own.

Did You Know: Cats cannot taste sweets. Their tastebuds cannot detect sugar.
