There is a special group of cats at the shelter who need a new home.  All of them have resided at the shelter for months.  It is time for them to leave and start the next chapter in their lives.  They are affectionate and friendly with people.  They co-habitate with the other cats but would be very happy being the only pet in a family.   All of them would make wonderful companions for an older person or couple.  They show no interest in “the great outdoors” so they would make great indoor companions.   They have so much love and companionship to share – please help us find a home for them soon. 


Additional information on each cat is shown on the “Cats for Adoption” page of the website.​

  • Believe it or not; a group of cats is called a clowder. 

           (Currently at the shelter we have a charming and cute clowder of cats.)

  • Cats sleep 70% of their lives.

  • A cat has five toes on his front paws and four on the back unless he’s a polydactyl.

  • Polydactyl cats are often referred to as “Hemingway Cats” because the author was so fond of them.

  •  A cat can jump up to 6x its length.

  •  Cats only sweat through their foot pads.

  •  Cats are often lactose intolerance so stop giving them milk.

  •  Mark Twain loved cats.  One of his favorite quotes was “If man could be crossed with the cat, it would improve man but deteriorate the cat.”
