These are the cats we currently have available for adoption. Cats at the top of list are the newest arrivals.
Finnegan is a large, very friendly Maine Coon type tabby. He was a stray in the Diamond Point area. A Good Samaritan found him and posted flyers in the neighborhood and notices in the local papers. When no one claimed Finnegan, his rescuer brought him to us. After only two days in our intake area, Finnegan is as relaxed, friendly and affectionate as can be. He is hard to photograph because all he wants to do is be near someone, be petted and loved. He purrs up a storm, kneads his paws, and gives back the love. As soon as he has had his veterinary check, he will be ready to go to some lucky family.
Harper is a beautiful young shorthair who was adopted in 2016. She had a wonderful home with a loving “mom” until recently, when her mom’s job made it impossible for her to keep Harper. She found a new home for Harper, but her new caregiver was no match for Harper’s insatiable curiosity. Barely out of kittenhood, Harper’s skill set includes opening cabinet doors and pulling out drawers. However, it was her fishing expedition in the aquarium that was Harper’s downfall. Harper’s former mom retrieved her and brought her to us to find a new home. We are pleased that she is back with us – she is a wonderful cat and will provide years of entertainment and an abundance of love and affection to the right family.
Socks is a young (1 1/2 year old) tuxedo. His previous caregiver loved him very much and cared for him, but had to give him up because of an allergy in the family. Socks is gentle, well-mannered, and will be a wonderful addition to some lucky family.
Squeeky is an adorable little Russian Blue type girl, about 6-7 years old. She came to us when her previous caregiver had to go into assisted living and could not keep her. Squeeky has an interesting and unusual trait – she loves to be petted, but instead of the typical purr, she emits a soft little growl. So, when you visit her, you will know that you are appreciated, loved and her friend when she growls! She has been an only cat, and would probably fit better into a single-cat household. If you love Russian Blue cats, you will definitely want to meet this little cutie.
More about Molly coming soon
Paisley is such a friendly, happy little girl. She has a beautiful soft gray and white coat. Her favorite thing is to entice visitors to sit down, so that she can crawl up on their shoulder and snuggle. Originally adopted in 2016, she was recently diagnosed with diabetes. She was returned to the shelter when her adoptive parent was unable to care for her. She’s adorable, and will make a wonderful companion to some lucky family with the skills and resources to care for this special needs cat.
Cookie is a very friendly and affectionate black and white “cow cat”. She was a stray who found a home with an elderly gentleman. Her “dad” recently passed away, and Cookie was brought to Safe Haven to find a new forever home. In spite of losing her home and her person, she has quickly adjusted to life at the shelter, and seems quite comfortable with her new surroundings. She is fast becoming a favorite with the staff and volunteers. She loves being petted, and will give head butts to whatever is handy – the person petting her, the wall, the floor – you name it! She will make some lucky person a wonderful companion.
More about July coming soon
Bradley, like his namesake, is a huge tank of an orange tabby. Mellow and laid back, big and brawny, this gentle giant would be a great addition to most families. He loves being petted and scratched, and rolls over on his back to have his tummy rubbed. He was dumped as a stray and rescued by folks who are now having to move to a home where, sadly, they can’t have pets. Middle aged and in great health, Bradley would love to meet you today.
Gracie is one of those gorgeous show-stopper calicos with an attitude to match. Left behind after her owners moved, Gracie is very friendly and social, with a great personality and plenty of confidence. Most calicos prefer to be only cats, and Gracie would love to be the queen of her own palace. Probably around five years old and In great health with a beautiful spotted coat and a large round face, this charmer would love to grace your home!
Meet Slivee, a beautiful long haired gray and white. Slivee is a little over four years of age. Although she did not have much of a home life in her past, she is very friendly and people-oriented. This gorgeous girl is very mellow in nature, gets along with other cats and would be a welcome addition to any cat fancier’s family. Come meet Slivee and see if she is just right for you.
More about Abigail coming soon
Radar was a young stray living in an area where some folks were not kind to such cats, and he was in grave danger. We were so happy to welcome this nice fellow into our shelter, as he is loving and friendly, and so wants a home of his own. Still a bit excitable as he was just neutered, Radar loves attention and is very interactive. He gets along with other cats, but can be a bit energetic at times. If you are looking for a fun, cute and playful cat, Radar is the ticket!
Leo is a HUGE fellow—long, tall and solid, he tilts the scales at 22 pounds! Leo came to us from another shelter where his feisty attitude had put his life in jeopardy. He had been nippy with a young child in his home, and had a propensity for smacking staff who were cleaning his cage. We have found him to be a good boy—while he can be overly stimulated, he is a really nice cat. He should be adopted by folks who are cat savvy and not intimidated by a big cat with a tiny bit of attitude. If you want to meet our Large Leo, please give a call!
Lexi is a gorgeous long haired tortie – smart, funny and full of attitude. She is such a joy to be around. Friendly and affectionate, she loves to be the Queen Bee and would prefer to be the only cat in her new home. Lexi is a 12 year old in good health. She is a full-sized girl and will be a wonderful lap cat and interactive companion. If you can provide Lexi with a loving home in a single-cat environment, please give us a call; we would be pleased to show you this special girl.
Merlin is just drop-dead gorgeous!! A big, long-haired Siamese mix who was adopted as a very tiny baby kitten from a box, he never received the social skills he should have learned from his mom and siblings. As a result, he didn’t do well in his busy adoptive home with two young children—sometimes being too aggressive with the kids as he entered the teenage phase. After a couple of months with us, he has become the most charming boy—he LOVES to be petted and puts his big paws up in your lap the minute you sit down. He can’t wait for visitors to his room—following them around talking and hoping to go home. It was heart-breaking recently when another cat in his room was adopted and Merlin immediately went into the crate yearning to be the chosen one! If you are a cat savvy person wanting a REALLY affectionate boy who will be your best buddy, then Magical Merlin might be just the match for you….give us a call to meet this special kitty.
Pippin and Priscilla are a pair of tortie sisters who have been together their entire lives. Adopted from us a few years ago they were just recently returned because their person had to move. The girls have always been on the shy side of things but they are very sweet well behaved cats accustomed to an indoor/outdoor lifestyle. If you are a lover of torties and are patient enough to get through their initial shyness you will be rewarded with the love and affection of two very special girls by allowing them to share your home.
Sadie came to us when her 90+ owner had to move into a care facility. A fifteen year old calico from the same home was, happily, adopted by one of our Board Members. A beautiful little black and white girl with a short tail, Sadie was waaaay too thin. She proved to have hyperthyroidism, and was successfully treated with radioactive iodine, and will have no further problems! She is now regaining her weight and settling into a more relaxed frame of mind. A loving and friendly little girl, she is very devoted to her brother, Sam.
Sam is an absolutely gorgeous long-haired Siamese mix who arrived with his sister, Sadie. Initially a little shy and confused by the dramatic changes in his life, Sammie is now very comfortable with us and with the other cats in his room. Having lost his “mom” then his “dad” and home, this fellow needs a quiet and understanding family. This beautiful and really loving boy is worth the time and energy to make him feel at home in a new home!!
If you really want to make a difference for a wonderful pair of cats, then come meet our Sam and Sadie today! At twelve years of age, they are past the age most easily placed, but if you might consider this very bonded pair, you will be so glad that you gave them another chance at a home!
Toby and Willie are approximately eleven years old. The brothers have lived together their whole lives, and must be adopted out as a bonded pair. The boys are healthy and have been well cared for. They are just two stunningly beautiful and well behaved boys looking for a loving home to share quality lap time with their new people. Please come on out to Safe Haven and meet our Toby and Willie and see if they are just right for you and your family.
Bobbie is an adorable special-needs Manx kitty. She came to us in the fall of 2012 when we received a call from an elderly gentleman that there was a kitten dying under his deck. When we arrived, we found a tiny kitten in a real mess, but she had no intention of dying – this little girl is a fighter! Bobbie has done very well, but as is common with some Manx cats, she does not have good bowel and bladder control. While this has greatly improved, she still requires special care and attention, and will probably do so for the rest of her life.
Funny, affectionate, playful, and full of energy, Bobbie is a pistol-pop!! She is alternately kissing your face and grabbing your hand for play. We ADORE her, and have put a lot of thought and energy into providing her with as stimulating an environment as possible. However, at the end of the day, this remarkable kitty needs to be with a loving family, preferably with no other cats – she thrives on being the only four-legged member of her family. If you have the time, space, energy and ability to deal with such a special girl, please give us a call. Bobbie Jo is well worth the effort she will require!!
Lucy-Alice is an adorable, outgoing little short-hair calico mackerel tabby Manx with a white bib and green eyes. Born in October of 2010, Lucy-Alice was originally adopted from Safe Haven as a kitten. She returned to Safe Haven in March of 2014. She is very sweet and loving, craves attention, and is a gentle soul. She did not display symptoms of Manx Syndrome, a condition affecting many Manx cats, until she was a year and a half old, and her issues are relatively mild. She loves having visitors, and thrives on the attention readily given to her. She is such a sweetheart and so full of love for people that it’s hard to leave after spending time with her. Lucy-Alice would really like to be in her new forever home – will that be with you?
Fagin, 13, is a green-eyed, short-haired black male who can best be described as a “big lug” full of love once you get to know him. When the brothers first arrived as young kittens, Fagin was in need of major dietary changes. He was gaining weight rapidly, and ended up so overweight that he could barely walk … and only for short distances. Now, many pounds lighter, Fagin easily roams his areas of Barker House, is able to get through the cat door to spend quality time in the sunshine, and can actually climb the three-level cat tree in their room. Fagin and Thistle are bonded brothers who rely on each other for affection and comfort. Both brothers are a little shy and need time to adapt to changes. They are a duo who know how to pull at your heartstrings and who need to be adopted together.
Thistle is a sleek, black, polydactyl 13-year-old male. He has magnificent copper-colored eyes and a sweet demeanor that will melt your heart. Thistle is diabetic and requires twice daily insulin shots. Fagin and Thistle are bonded brothers who rely on each other for affection and comfort. Both brothers are a little shy and need time to adapt to changes in their environment or life style. The brothers make a great team, and they do need to be adopted together.
Tilly is an exceptionally nice young tortie. Apparently left behind when her owners and the trailer they were living in drove away, Tilly showed up at a nearby home. Luckily, the kind folks there fed and sheltered this girl in their greenhouse through the freezing cold and snowy weather. Tilly is just a sweet as sugar—affectionate and gentle and loving attention. She is so grateful for her cozy bed and tasty food that she spends her time purring and kneading in appreciation. Medium in size and large on personality, Tilly would be a welcome addition to most any family!
Sunny is an interesting cat—found as a stray in Sunland, this ear-tipped but very social boy had a micro-chip originating from a shelter in Walla Walla. He was trapped and neutered along with many other community and feral cats and was placed by the rescuer, but she doesn’t remember by whom. He was advertised and proper authorities were notified locally, but no-one has claimed this lovely big fellow. Unfortunately, along his journey, Sunny picked up the FIV virus and will need to spend the rest of his life indoors and would love to be the only cat, even though he could certainly share a home with well-behaved roomies. He is big, beautiful and everything you could want in a nice male cat. Sunny loves both his canned food and attention—he is just such a nice guy!! If you want to make a special cat happy with a home for the holidays, please make Sunny your 2017 Valentine!!
Louanna is a sweet Russian Blue-looking cat with a demure and loving manner. Dumped in a rural area, she has been living under a deck for the past year where she was terrorized by a large male cat in the area. She is SOOOOO happy to have a cozy warm bed and plenty of delicious food to eat—she purrs nonstop and kneads to let us know just how pleased she is to be rescued. If you are looking for a gentle and kind little cat with a lot appreciation for a loving home, then Louanna is the girl for you.
Misty was returned to us due to an allergy on the part of a child in the home. Around six years old, Misty is a gorgeous tabby who, unfortunately, just had to have all of her teeth pulled due to a condition called stomatitis. She has recovered nicely and will now do well for the rest of her life and never need a dentistry!! This is one gentle and lovely cat who enjoys a quiet lap and a home where she will be treated as the treasure she is. We had this girl as a tiny kitten, so we are especially devoted to her and hoping that she will find the perfect home soon!
Hank is a large, handsome, debonair gentlecat wearing a tidy gray tuxedo to match his charming manner. Living as a stray for some time, Hank was rescued by a kind neighbor who brought him to Safe Haven. He is such a good guy—gentle, friendly and affectionate, nice to other cats and tolerant of dogs. Probably two-three years old, Hank would make a great addition to most any family. Please give us a call to meet this special fellow.
Ralphie is a very beautiful three year old Maine Coon mix. He has the looks of a Maine Coon, but weighing in at 10 pounds, he doesn’t have the size. Ralphie came to us because someone in his family was found to be allergic to cats, so now their unfortunate loss is someone else’s golden opportunity to adopt a great cat. In his past, Ralphie was known to get along with children and dogs, and is really one outstanding boy.
Lover Boy was abandoned or dumped near a vacant house on Finn Hall Road. He was fending for himself for many months until a good Samaritan began feeding him a few weeks ago and discovered him to be so terribly matted that his fur was coming off in clumps, and he finally ended up being shaved. Despite this neglect, he lives up to his name. He is the sweetest boy ever, and just wants to be close to people and be loved. Now that his fur has grown back, and he has been vet checked, someone is going to be very happy to take him to his new home.
Clara was returned to PFOA when her owner had to go into assisted living. She is one of the kindest and sweetest declawed cats we have ever had. Around 10 years old, Clara is in good health and looking forward to a lot of good years in a quiet and peaceful home where she will be able to live out her days without having having to say goodbye to her family again. To meet this exceptionally nice girl, give us a call.
Sylvester is a very handsome shorthair tuxedo kitty who originally came to Safe Haven about three years ago. He had been living under an apartment building after his first family moved. He waited for them to come back for some time, and was finally brought to Safe Haven to find a new home. It didn’t take long for this sweet boy to be adopted by a very nice retired lady, and for the last three years he and his “mom” have been inseparable. He was such a happy kitty until the end of December, when his beloved caregiver passed away. Sylvester was immediately brought back to Safe Haven. He is clearly heartbroken at the loss of his mom. He just lays in his bed and meows pitifully when people talk to him. In addition, this FIV positive kitty needs some major dental work, so his mouth may be quite sore. We will get him the needed dental work and continue to shower him with affection. We will update this listing when Sylvester has recovered from his dental work and is ready for his new forever home.
Harvey is a one year old short haired tabby who showed up at a Good Samaritan’s house in the Morse Creek area during this last bit of cold weather. They advertised him on Pet Posse while he stayed in their laundry room, but no one claimed him. With three cats of their own and the family getting ready to leave on a three week vacation, they contacted us and asked if we could take Harvey in. How could we say no? Harvey is very friendly, loves people and gets along well with other cats. He is going to be a great addition to some lucky family.
This little orange beauty came to us as a stray from a West End trailer park. Trapped by Good Samaritans, she is very sweet and gentle, but still scared and wondering what happened to her. In a quiet gentle home, this adorable young kitty will blossom and be the perfect companion. She loves to be petted and enjoys a good snuggle. Please meet our little Heidi—if you have time and patience, this is the perfect little cat for you!
Pinky is the luckiest three legged cat in the world!! Not only did he find a Good Samaritan to feed him for several months when he was a stray, but the same kind gentleman took him to the vet after he found Pinky hiding under his lawn chair with a badly broken leg. Pinky’s injuries were so severe that euthanasia was considered, but because he is such a nice cat, the veterinarian offered to amputate the leg and try to find Pinky a home. When PFOA was contacted about taking this fellow, we gladly offered to be part of the team effort to rehabilitate and rehome this great cat!
Pinky is recovering beautifully and the amputation of his rear leg is almost invisible!! While still learning how to be a tripod, he is remarkably agile and comfortable. He eats like a horse, and loves petting and attention. While he will always need to be an indoor cat, now, Pinky should live a long and normal life. If you are interested in meeting this remarkable survivor who has lost several of his lives and one of his legs, please make an appointment to meet our Pinky!
Bozwald is one of those big mellow orange “galooty” boys who head butts and rubs and purrs, but also wants to run and play as a teenager should! Unfortunately declawed as a young kitten, this seven month old came to us when his owner unexpectedly passed away. He is just the perfect cat—large, laid back and lovely! Check Bozwald out soon—this boy will find a home quickly!
