Fluffy Butt

It’s hard to be dignified with a name like Fluffy Butt, but I do my best! I’m a sweet 12 year old girl who appreciates the finer things in life – petting upon my request, naps in a sunny windowsill and delicious treats. Could I enjoy them with you?

Rocky Road

Rocky Road is an approximately 8 year old boy who is on the hunt for a new family! Rocky Road loves, loves, loves to be pet and will keep bumping your hand for more and more. He is a curious fella, always quick to want to know what is going on. We don’t know much about his background, but he’s hoping to start a new story with YOU!

Hi everyone, handsome Felix here! I’m a sweet and mellow adult boy, neat and well mannered. I’m a staff favorite – some even call me distinguished! I was a shelter guest last year and was happily adopted but came back because my new owner had some severe and unexpected medical issues. I’m so ready for my happy forever home… could it be yours?


Oh man–Polo is a catch! This boy is gentle, sweet, mellow, and easygoing. Polo is about 4 years old and looking for a new home. He loves to be pet, but isn’t too needy about demanding attention–he prefers gentle head bumps and leaning into the petting. Polo has been observed having a seizure – he has not been observed having any more seizures and there is no treatment recommended. He may never have a seizure again, or this could be something he deals with from time to time. He is a happy, healthy cat otherwise!


Please meet handsome Aloe! He’s a wonderful boy just 8 years of age who has lived with dogs, cats, and kids. He’s very mellow and sweet and really affectionate too. He’s a staff favorite – just look at that face! Please come in and check him out!


Hello, the charming Jeeves here, at your service! I’m a mellow and loving girl about 7 years old. I love affection and pets, and would like nothing more than to hang out with YOU! I came to the shelter because my owner passed away, and I’m used to being an indoors-only kitty. I have gorgeous soft fur and am an all-around sweetheart. Please come in to meet me!


What a gorgeous girl! Please meet the lovely Velvet, a striking lady with seal point markings. She may be 13 years old, but she’s outgoing and affectionate and just loves attention! Velvet would be a perfect calm and friendly companion for some lucky person or family… come meet her today!
