Black Cat Appreciation Day

Celebrate Black Cat Appreciation Day on Friday, November 28! Meet your new best friend at an adoption event this weekend or browse our black kitties online.


Cameo is an ever-so-gentle girl and an undemanding companion. She is the kind of cat that will always be quietly nearby and paying attention, but never on top of you. She and her sister Cassidy would be a perfect fit for the "work at home" person who would like un-intrusive cat companionship.


Abbie sticks close to her people or her foster brother, Enzo. She likes to perch on her foster mom's shoulder or in the crook of an arm or in the kitten nest with her brother. She purrs almost non-stop. She chirps happily and plays very gently with the other kittens in her foster home.


My name is Clary. I was rescued under a bush near a restaurant by 4 women who went out to get some food on their lunch break. As soon as they got out of the car I squawked as loud as I could to get their attention.


Like her brother and best buddy Peeps, Pansy is a friendly, gentle, people-oriented kitty who appreciates some special attention from her foster mom. She is super-playful and loves all of her many toys and really enjoys a good morning romp with her brother.


Kizzy is a friendly and playful little girl kitten who just wants a happy life (1) playing with her kitten sibs (2) sitting in your lap and purring while you adore her and (3) to eat your turkey sandwich before it is all gone.


Peeps is that wonderful combination of purry affection and charming goofiness. He approaches life with wonder and boldness and will even venture into the shower when the water is running! He and his sister Pansy can usually be found together, playing with toys, exploring, or getting a drink out of the bathroom faucet.


Kimmy is a friendly and playful little girl kitten who just wants a happy life (1) playing with her kitten sibs (2) sitting in your lap and purring while you adore her and (3) trying to eat your cereal before it is all gone.


Charlie is the best of both worlds- very outgoing, yet enjoys cuddling. He loves playing with his brothers and sisters, whether it's chasing them around the room or falling asleep in a pile! He always seems to be purring and is one of the first to greet you when you come in the room.


Olive and Lucy are darling siblings that love life. They are outgoing, cuddly, and playful. They greet you at the door and love to romp around and then settle down for a good long snooze. Olive is especially cuddly and drapes herself across her foster family.


This wonderful little kitten always has something to say..."Pet me, pick me up, feed me, I want to snuggle!" He adores sleeping with his foster mom and always lets her know when the food dish is empty. He has a knack for getting underfoot, but hopefully soon he will learn how to walk NEXT do his foster mom instead of UNDER her feet.He


Kip is a sweet spunky kitten who loves to be a part of the action! He loves to play with his kitten friends and also enjoys being pet. He is full of energy and sometimes will even hop around the room playing with shadows.


Cherry is playful, friendly, active, fun and everything you could want in a kitten. She loves to snuggle on your lap and greets you at the door with her sweet meow. There could not be a nicer kitten.


Lucy is a fun and feisty little girl that keeps up just as well with her big brothers! She is a wonderful snuggler and the first one to curl up in your lap. As much as she loves to play with the other kittens, she really prefers the cuddle up with a person, purring while she dozes off.

Mama Mia

Mama Mia is an absolute sweetie who has loved people from day one! Although she doesn't tend to do much lap perching, she will eagerly greet her foster mom and lay close to her to watch TV. She is a prize-winning nuzzler and loves having her belly rubbed! She will often climb onto the back of the couch and affectionately rub all over the top of her foster mom's head.

Did You Know: On average, cats live 15 to 18 years. The oldest cat on record lived for 36 years and one day!
