Billy found himself homeless after a death in the family. Fortunately for Billy, some of the neighbors were aware of his plight and saw to it that Billy had something to eat and a place to stay. Those very same caring neighbors contacted one of our most caring volunteers and together they brought Billy to Peninsula Friends of Animals. Billy is a large (15 pounds) brown tabby with distinctive white markings, a very good-looking boy. He is about 10 years of age, very friendly, and is going to be a great companion for some lucky person. Call and make an appointment to meet this great cat today.
Nigel is a handsome young shorthair gray and white kitty. He has a wonderfully curious and affectionate personality. is a very special guy, very easy going and confident in every way. He was adopted from us in 2015 and recently returned. For reasons unknown, he left his home and was turned in to a veterinary in Lynnwood. Although they were notified, his family did not come to get him so he came back to PFOA.
He loves being around people, and will trot at the heels of visitors hoping for a lap, pat on the head or cuddles. He’s very talkative – not loud, just often! He appears to get along well with other cats, and he absolutely loves, loves, loves dogs! His best buddy in a previous home was a dog, and he would be overjoyed to have a new home with a cat-friendly dog! Nigel is an overall wonderful cat with a greaaat purrsonality, and we think he will quickly charm a new adoptive mom or dad. From observation, it appears that Nigel would readily take to a leash and harness, and he rides in a car exceptionally well, making him a good candidate for someone who wanted a cat who can travel. With his self-confidence and friendly ways there are probably not many home situations that Nigel couldn’t adapt to. He is just a gem of a cat. Come see for yourself!
NOTE: The video was taken in 2015, when Nigel was about a year old.
Leonardo is a big four year-old brown tabby. He is very friendly and people oriented, is rumored to get along well with dogs but is not so fond of small children.
These two boys, while not brothers in the strictest sense of the word, are very bonded to each other. Spatzi is a beautiful Siamese mix, and his companion of the last ten years is Spanky, a very handsome tuxedo cat. These are two of the gentlest souls you will ever meet. They are the text book example of well-behaved, loving cats. Spatzi is the more outgoing of the two, often greeting you at the door with a friendly meow and a leg rub. Spanky tends to be more laid back, often lounging in a bed or cat tree. He is easily approachable and loves to be petted and fawned over. Come and meet these two handsome boys and you will discover their purrfect personalities for yourself!
Blay is a beautiful all-white medium hair girl. She was originally adopted from us as a kitten in 2012, and went home with her sister, Quinn, and her mama, Luci. Her person recently lost her home, and could not find a rental that allowed cats. She was forced to return them to us. Her person tells us that Blay is a real love – she loves everyone. She is curious and loves attention. She has no problem meeting new people, and even does well with dogs.
Quinn is Blay’s sister – she was also adopted from PFOA as a kitten in 2012. She is an all-white shorthair with the most amazing eyes – one is blue and one is green. She is slightly shy, but is a total love bug. She loves nothing more than to get attention and find a comfy place on someone’s lap.
Luci is the mother of Blay and Quinn, and was adopted with them in late 2012. She has no problem letting them know that they are princesses and she is the cat who would be queen. Like her daughters, she is a beautiful all-white cat with golden eyes. When it comes to people, Luci is very lovable. She will mark you heavily with a cheek rub and roll about in a playful manner. She absolutely relishes any loving you give her and will reciprocate in kind. Because of her royal status Luci would be happiest with a family she could have to herself. She would probably accept other pets just so long as they recognized her royal status. Perhaps it is time for a feline monarchy in your home! Come meet this benevolent and lovable royal girl.
All Nathan and Nikki have ever wanted was a person who would love them and a stable home environment. Up to this point these two needs have rarely coincided with one another for this beautiful pair. Nikki, a gorgeous Russian Blue type kitty, can be rather shy initially but once she warms up to you she is an absolute sweetheart. Her brother Nathan is a handsome tuxedo who is more confident and friendly. They are really great cats and are going to be a great addition to someone’s family.
Max is a wonderful, all-black senior kitty who looks and acts like a young adult. He came to us with IBD, which is now under control with a change in diet and some exercise. He is very affectionate, loves to give head butts and purrs and kneads his paws when he is getting his much-desired attention.
Meet Thomasina, a delightful little gray tabby of about 8 years of age. Thomasina was adopted from us several years back but had to return because her caregiver passed on. While we are saddened by this news we are delighted to have Thomasina back with us. Like many, she was a little owly upon arrival but is quickly mellowing and is returning to her sweet, good-natured self. Thomasina loves to rub her cheeks on things including the legs and hands of her visitors. She’s an attractive and vibrant girl just waiting for the right home. Come meet this outstanding little gal!
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.
July is a very nice little tortie who was returned to us when her caregivers could no longer take care of her. She was adopted from PFOA about six years ago. At about eight years of age, she has developed arthritis and has some significant back pain. We are giving her several medications to help with the pain, and her mobility has improved somewhat. We have her on a high fiber special diet, which she will probably always require, along with medications to keep her relatively pain-free and healthy. She would be perfect for a single cat home and for someone who wants a very low key cuddly cat. July wants nothing more than to curl up in an easy chair with her special person, and happily purr away.
Abigail is a beautiful 4 year-old brown tabby, not quite height-weight proportionate. She could stand to lose a few ounces, and we have her on a diet to help her do just that. She is quite a character, as her photos indicate, and has a mind of her own – she knows exactly what she wants and when she wants it, and will not hesitate to make her wishes known. She loves heights – her favorite place is the top of the tall cat tree in her room. She also loves being on her back, with her head hanging over the edge of the cat tree. If you like independent cats (and have a tall cat tree), Abby may be the gal for you!
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!
Kit Carson is a handsome orange tabby with white trim who has two extra digits on each of his front feet. This boy exhibits behavior indicative of a cat removed from his mother too early where his cat sense and manners are not as good as they should be. His behavior is unpredictable when meeting new people or in a new environment. On the other hand, many volunteers as well as staff members have held him in their laps, petting him while he contently purrs away, sweet as can be. His ideal family would be very cat-saavy, able to read cat body language and respond to his needs.
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.
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?
Thistle is a sleek, black, polydactyl 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 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.
This little darling is being called Eclipse because she was caught in a trap at PFOA on August 21 after hanging around the shelter for several days as a stray. She is an absolute sweetheart in every way, very affectionate. Eclipse is less than a year and half of age, very petite in size and has a slight kink in her tail. Eclipse was, at some point in her life, part of a trap, neuter and return program, which is why one of her ears is clipped. However, this little gal is far from being feral. She is a little shy at first but otherwise elegant and civilized. Come meet this charming little gal.
Willow is a beautiful 16 year old longhair calico. She was adopted from us as a kitten and was just returned due to her owner’s circumstances.
Mo is a beautiful Ragdoll young boy. At just over a year old, Mo is the friendliest little guy you could ever hope to meet. We think he might have a mild case of cerebellar hypoplasia. This is a totally non-life threatening and non-debilitating condition; it only affects motor skills and coordination. Mo came from an environment where his condition and needs were misunderstood so he hasn’t been given the support he needs for a normal life. Now that he is with people who understand him, Mo is going to make a great companion for some lucky person who doesn’t mind a cat with a wobbly gait.
Whitney is a beautiful long haired tabby with very distinctive tri-color markings and extra toes on her front feet. She is probably three to five years of age with a very sweet lovable personality. Come and meet this most charming girl.
Daisy is a very petite and very sweet calico girl. She loves to roll on her back for belly rubs while pointing her toes. Having grown up as a stray, she does take a little while to warm up to people (especially men), but once she does it is non-stop loving coming your way. Daisy is about 1 to 2 years old, and was found living under our special needs facility, Barker House. Who knows what she has been through?
We think Daisy would do best as an indoor only cat, since she has no desire to go outside. She would prefer a quiet home, with adults, because the activity and noise level of children are not her cup of tea. All Daisy wants is love and a warm lap to lie in. We are sure that once she gets settled in and acclimated somewhere, Daisy will be the queen of the household as all calicos tend to want to be.
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.
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.
Molly is a sweet gray and white girl who was adopted from us in 2015. Unfortunately, her caregiver/companion recently passed away, and Molly returned to us to find a new forever home.
Brownlee is one of the prettiest Siamese boys we have had in a long time!! He is right around one year old and with his piercing blue eyes, Brownlee is a stunner! Brownlee was living as a stray for several months. Several bite wounds on him indicate he had to fight for his existence. He does not seem to be overly aggressive towards the cats he has met while at PFOA. We suspect that his wounds may be of a defensive nature.
Brownlee was rescued by a kind family who wasn’t able to take him in, as they had an older cat who was not receptive to having a new roommate. Consequently, Brownlee has come to live with us. Initially cautious after his rocky months as a stray, Brownlee is quickly learning how to trust and enjoy his new surroundings. This especially nice and beautiful fellow would love to have a safe and adoring home to call his own. Give us a call if you wish to make the acquaintance of beautiful Brownlee.
One year old Noah is such a cute boy! With his large curly haired head and his sweet, gentle personality, he just makes you laugh! Brought to us when his family could not keep him in an apartment, Noah is a kind and mellow cat. Enjoying his snuggly bed and loving his five star menu, Noah has quickly become used to the high life at the shelter. This boy won’t stay with us long, so make an appointment to meet Noah today!
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!
