Randolph was found outside with a feral colony -- but he wasn't
feral. Somebody must have dumped him there.
He just came in today and is a little shell-shocked, but he seems to be
a sweet guy.

Update: He's becoming very friendly, talking to me when I'm near
his cage, rubbing his face on my hand and enjoying petting. He'll
make someone a lovely pet.
Update: He's not only pettable, but positively mushy and demanding.
A real sweetie!
Rattle was so shy that I sent her to be fostered with a couple
who are really good at getting cats to engage with people. They
She's definitely more comfortable now than she was when she
first got here. It took her a while, but she's now letting us—and
even strangers—pet her. (She's particularly permitting of that
when she has a feather or string in her paws.) She purrs
regularly now, and comes up to us from time to time. She likes
to stroll around in front of us and roll on the ground in front of
us when we watch TV, as if she wants us to pay attention to
her. Toys with feathers seem to be the trick with her—she is
absolutely obsessed with anything feather-related. Strings also
do the trick. She basically loves playing with just about
anything, especially if it has feathers.

Gregg is one of the smartest cats I've ever encountered:
I kept finding him strolling around on the floor after I'd
caged him for the night and eventually I witnessed him
very deliberately pushing the latch up to release himself.
I've stopped even trying to cage him.
He has also (after getting over his initial fear of the new
premises and my dog) become a very sweet, gentle
friendly guy who gets along with everyone.

Double is an odd little cat: a bit shy, but curious and sometimes
willing to be petted.
Lately he's become much more friendly, looking into my eyes
and purring when I stroke him.
And very photogenic!
He's a year old and small for a male.

Victor is a big, sweet, cat -- once the neighborhood
welcomer until his feeder became ill and sought an indoor
place for him.
He's fine with other cats and friendly with people as long
as he can withdraw when he's had enough. If you're
looking for a laid-back, not overly demonstrative buddy --

Melanie was very friendly when I found her on the street, but didn't do well in a
cage. She has been staying with a foster family; this is what they say:
Every time we come home, she would run to the door to greet us. Whenever we
moved to a different room, she would slowly follow us into that room. Even when
one of us uses the bathroom we would open the door to find her there waiting for
us! Sometimes she can be a bit shy about being petted, but it's usually not a
problem—she's not shy at all about rubbing herself all over your legs, even if you're
just a visitor. All in all she's a very sweet kitty, and has come to love meeting new
people. I'm quite confident she will have no problem adjusting to a new home.

Misty had kittens when she was too young and came to
me very run down. She has now gained weight and was
She's a dear, gentle little thing.

She now lives in my bedroom, where she can get some
exercise. She walks with a wobble (possibly from an old
injury), but is otherwise fine. Randolph (above) has taken
her under his wing and washes her head.
Keke was brought to me by a family that was moving
and when he first came he was mad at me for taking his
people away: very cage-aggressive.
Now that he's been here awhile and is no longer caged
he's showing himself to be a sweet, quiet cat who enjoys

Sherwin Williams has some white fur along his back
and side that makes him look as if he rubbed against wet
He's a very nice cat, affectionate and snuggly.

Luke (white face) and Leah were found outside and brought to
me. They are calm, friendly souls; every time I walk past their
cage I can hear them purring.

Leah has been adopted. Luke is lonely... December 11
Dancer and Dipsy (brother and sister) came in as feral kittens (never handled and scared). They have adjusted well and can
now be handled and petted easily. (Sorry about the sideways image!)

Cricket is a tiny thing, sleek and graceful. She's six
months old. She likes to explore and is also very friendly.

Deacon was found desperately trying to get onto a
church. He's a young cat and had been neutered before
he was abandoned; all he wanted was to get back indoors.
He's an exceptionally mellow, friendly cat.
Why isn't anyone looking for him?

Clarence was abandoned in the lobby of my building, tied to
a radiator. Had his owner died? Moved?
My vet said he's about six years old - and that had I not
brought him in as quickly as I did he would have died: his
X-rays showed the worst intestinal blockage the vet had ever
Now Clarence is completely recovered (but on a high fiber
diet which he may continue to require). He's a very nice cat,
calm and friendly.
And yes, he's a lynxpoint snowshoe Himalayan mix:
long-coated and blue-eyed.

Jonah was the only survivor of a bottle-raised litter.
He's a dear little thing, quite without fear, and very playful.
