Fred 1 2023


Fred is an easy-going, friendly boy who might be about three years old. Fred is long-haired, and looks as though he could be part Maine Coon. He is neutered, and up to date with vaccinations. Because Fred is such a nice cat, we hope someone will overlook his special needs and give him a home. Fred is considered a special needs adoption as he sustained a spinal injury at some point in his past. He does not seem to have complete feeling in his back end. He always uses the litter box but also leaves small droppings outside the box as well.

Fred is Sponsored by Patti.

Gremlin, a long-haired beauty, is approximately three years old. She came to the shelter as a stray, after being found hiding under bushes, probably lost or abandoned. Gremlin is a very sweet, non-aggressive girl, but she is also very timid, possibly because of traumatic events early in her life. Gremlin is doing well in her foster home where she feels comfortable and is affectionate. She loves to sit in her cat tree in the sun, and look out the window. Because of her timidity, Gremlin will need a patient owner who will give her time to adjust to a new environment, and a home with no dogs or young children. Gremlin is a special needs cat because she has a congenital heart defect. She will require medication throughout her life. She takes half a pill in the morning, and half in the evening, mixed into wet food, without a problem. Gremlin will need  monitoring with a vet.

Gremlin is Not at the Shelter.
Gremlin is in a foster home. If you are interested in Gremlin,
email to request an application and make arrangements to meet her.

Gremlin is Sponsored In Memory of Marilyn Gerling.

Seven 3 2023


Seven is the sweetest girl! She loves people, petting, and attention. She was matted when she came to us, so she was shaved, but she will be a beauty when her fur grows back. Seven seems to get along with other cats and with children, but she is  not fond of most dogs. Seven is a 7 year old, long-haired torti. Seven is a special needs cat because she is diabetic and requires insulin once daily.

She is in a foster home. If you are interested in adopting or meeting Seven, email
