Randolph was found outside with a feral colony -- but he wasn't
feral. Somebody must have dumped him there.
He's been with me for a couple of years now (he hides when
company comes, which makes him hard to place) and has blossomed
into one of the sweetest cats I've ever encountered: he asks to be
petted (loves handling) and has befriended the cats most in need of
nurturing. Here he's giving Double a good washing. And he's the only
cat Misty feels safe playing with.

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.

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.

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

Clarence is a delightful cat: affectionate to the point of
He's living with other cats here, but would probably be
happiest if he were the only pet: he wants his person all to
He does, however, need to remain on a veterinary diet to
keep his bowels working right: he has a history of
becoming blocked on ordinary cat food.

Flora (top) and Molly (bottom) are here under false pretences:
Flora was adopted from me as a kitten four years ago, the adopter
promising to return her to me if she was no longer wanted. But
instead she passed her along to a despicable liar, who already had
another (older) cat.
The liar eventually moved to housing where they were not welcome
and begged me to hold them "just one week" until his girlfriend could
That was at the beginning of July.
There have been multiple stories and excuses, but the bottom line is
that both cats are still here.
So I'm putting them up for adoption.
They're nice cats. What the liar did isn't their fault.

Molly has been adopted.
And Flora, now that she's living where she can be outside the
cage during the day, has shaped to be very, very affectionate.
Violet was one of a litter born to a feral mother in
someone's yard. Her siblings were too wild to be
socialized by the time I was told about it (they and their
mother are being TNRed), but Violet had the
intelligence to make friends with her caretaker and is a
very nice, friendly young cat.

Chibi (her name means "little" in Japanese) was brought to

Half Mask came in along with five siblings, the last of
whom was adopted last night.
She's now alone in her cage, crying because she has no
I hope she'll be adopted soon.
