Adoptable Pets

Button is cute as a button! He really is. He’s actually turned out to be kind of a big boy. He’s a gorgeous ticked brown tabby with a really bushy tail for a short-haired kitty. It takes a minute for him to trust a new person, but once he does, he’s a lap-cat, AND a playful guy. He’s also a talker. He showed up at one of our Lawrenceburg cat colonies one day talking up a storm. He was tame, so we think he was dumped. He obviously didn’t belong there. If you are looking for a companion who pays attention to you, talks to you, snuggles, and plays, Button is the one! Oh, and he also really loves a good belly rub.  button2 button2
Joey is a large white cat with tabby spots on head, ears and tail who is an absolute sweetheart! Joey’s major selling point is this: if you are looking to add to a household that already has cats or dogs, he’s the one. He gets along well with other cats and dogs, and takes a more passive role. He is never pushy, and will automatically take the lower spot in the crowd, which is helpful if you already have a “top cat.” While Joey is not a lap cat, he likes to sit right next to you on the couch, but is not pushy. He is a very big boy – not fat – just has a tall and long body structure. He’s a pretty quiet guy, and you won’t even realize he’s next to you on the couch until you reach for the remote and find a big white fluffy guy instead. Also, if you are one of those people who do NOT like “talkers,” Joey is not a talker (while Button most definitely IS). He likes to play if you have an interactive toy.  But he’s basically just a very chill dude.  joey
Willie has come a long way since found lying in a back yard in Frankfort starving and dehydrated. He is a bit shy with new people, but once he trusts you, he will hop up on the couch to sit with you at night. He is shy and passive cat. He needs patient people, though, and probably no children. He also loves other cats and dogs. He’s a little on the older side at this point, but he would still make a wonderful companion. He’s a very, very sweet boy, and he also has the most amazing amber eyes I’ve ever seen on a cat!  willie2Willie
Skittles had been hit by a car in Lawrenceburg and was initially paralyzed. We worked with her, doing physical therapy, and eventually she was able to walk – and run – again. Even while she was recovering and could not move her back end, she wanted to play, and we would hold toys up and let her play with her front paws. Once she recovered, we discovered she is a very active girl. Now, you can kind of tell by the way she moves that she had an injury, but it doesn’t seem to bother her. She is both playful and loving. She gets along with both cats and dogs. She loves to snuggle with humans and cats, and she ADORES dogs. She actually likes to play really rough with dogs. And she likes to tuck herself under blankets and into bags. On the side where she was hit by the car, the fur grew back in white, in the shape of a wing, where she almost got her angel’s wings. Instead, she became a little miracle who stayed on earth.  skittlesskittles
 Blue is a very sweet kitty who gets along with other cats, but does not necessarily want to hang out with them or snuggle them. She also gets along with dogs, although again, she’s not buddies with them. She’s a people-cat, and very much so. She will follow you around and wants to be loved on all the time. This is a girl who will sleep with you, greet you at the door, etc. She does have issues of getting on the table and counters and does not seem to learn from the spray bottle or clapping – just seems to get her feelings hurt and never seems to "get it." She may not be very smart when it comes to learning things. But she does have a very big heart. So if someone is interested in adopting her, they REALLY would have to be ok with the fact that she IS going to get on the table and things like that and never learn – because I don’t think she will change, and she sees any correction as meanness and seems to feel truly hurt by it. So don’t ask about her just because she’s beautiful and you want a cat who looks like a Russian Blue if you are not willing to accept her flaws in exchange for an EXTREMELY loving cat. ONLY INQUIRE IF you are willing to accept these flaws please.  Blue & milly blue4
Stallone was found hit by a car in Lawrenceburg, and one of his back legs was shattered. Eventually, that healed. But he was left with other issues from the impact of the car – chronic liver failure. For this issue, he is on medication and requires regular blood work to be sure his liver is still functioning. He is healthy and happy, but the problem is that the vets cannot tell us how long he can live this way. As of his last check up, his liver numbers were completely under control and within normal range with the medication. But there is no way for us to know how long that will last, and we have to be upfront about that. He is an extremely sweet cat who gets along with other cats and he loves dogs.  11080908_10206486762668267_4033830500787259853_n stallone
Cleo was at one of our Lawrenceburg feral cat colonies and had to be pulled in for a couple of reasons. The main one was that we were alerted by a regular walker at the park that Cleo was approaching people walking dogs on a regular basis, and that he felt she was in danger (his dog, for instance, would attack a cat). The problem was, Cleo loved dogs. She didn’t entirely trust people, but she thought dogs were all awesome. Since she lived at a park where people walked their dogs regularly, this put her in danger on a regular basis. Cleo has come to trust us to a degree, but is still very shy. So her ideal home would be one with a patient human, at least one cat-friendly dog, and other cats, because she loves other animals and that is the only way she’s going to feel comfortable. A home with only humans would probably not be a comfortable place for her. She is extremely sweet and gets along with everyone.  cleo3 cleo2
Little One was rescued from a Lawrenceburg trailer park where over 75 cats were roaming. We trapped, neutered, and released over 50. But Little One had so many scars on her body and was so small, that we feared she wouldn’t make it we released her. She was clearly getting beat up. We have made some progress gaining her trust, but she is still semi-feral. She needs a patient home with other cats. She LOVES other kitties and needs a buddy. She also likes dogs.  Little One
Squeak is a very sweet cat who is mostly white with black spots on his head and a black tail. He is a smaller cat for a male. And as his name suggests, he has a ‘squeaky’ little voice. He is sweet, loving, and playful. Gets along fabulously with other cats. We are currently listing him as ‘special needs’ because he has cataracts already, as well as ‘tipping lenses’ – which means that eventually he may lose his sight.Cats and dogs both get along very well without sight in our experience, so it’s nothing to be fearful of. We don’t know for sure that Squeak will ever go completely blind, and we have no idea if it does happen, if it will be one year from now or ten years from now. He began life at a hoarder’s house, though, and this sweet boy deserves a safe loving home of his own someday. UPDATE: 07/16/12 Squeak is blind in one eye now, but like stated above, it doesn’t slow him down a bit!  squeak
Mimi is a sweetheart of a kitty that showed up at one of our feral cat colonies. Obviously not feral, this girl would wait anxiously for us to appear with food, and always giving us a thank you in return. At the time, we did not have the ability to bring her into the program, but thankfully, we were able to. Mimi is about 2-3 years old and gets along with other cats, dogs, and older children. She does seem to be more of a “guy’s cat,” as she trusts and loves her foster dad more than her foster mom, but if desperate, she will ask her foster mom for attention, too! She is a sweetie who deserves a forever home and knows that she will never have to face the harsh outside world again!  mimi (2) mimi
Rue is a very sweet older girl found sick and malnourished in Lawrenceburg. This poor girl has had a rough life until we found her. Now a pampered lady, Rue is very affectionate and sweet. She is also a polydactyl, or ‘Hemmingway’ cat, which means she has an extra toe on her front feet. Rue has occasional mouth ulcers which require an inexpensive shot every six weeks to keep under control  rue
Silver is one of our senior kitties who started out as feral. When her Lawrenceburg colony location was being bulldozed, we had to pull her in. We were going to relocate her to a barn, but while trying to find a place, she started to get tame. She is now tame, but she also has developed some health issues. She has some food allergies which cause irritable bowel, so she requires a special diet and medication to keep her on track. She also has some ear irritation from her allergies. We are still in the process of working out her treatment plan, so she is on hold until we are certain her issues are completely under control.  silly goodCo
Cash is one of our FIV boys who was in rough shape before he came. He was in Frankfort in the condition you see in the before picture. You can see his amazing transformation. He is a sweet and loving guy who just really wants attention and would love a home of his own. After

Isaak is another feline leukemia positive kitty. He is semi feral, but he is coming around to us. He adores Nate, and Nate adores him, so they keep each other company.  isaak
