Cowboy

Cowboy

 
 

Cowboy is an adult male who lost his home when a baby was about to arrive.  He had become feisty and bit the dad and it seemed too risky to the couple to keep him so they had to make the tough decision to surrender.  Cowboy does not do well with other male cats so he was not a good candidate for the SPCA.  

Cowboy is a gorgeous polydactyl kitty and has 7 toes on his big front feet which look like huge mittens.  He is not fond of people and likes only minimal interaction.  If treats are involved he can be petted for a few seconds at most.   He is very expressive and when a nap is interrupted he can look like Grumpy Cat.  

Cowboy is healthy and has no medical issues.  It would be good if he got a bit of exercise as he is a teensy bit chubby.  He is a quiet cat who likes to nap a lot.

Cowboy needs a home with great patience since much trust-building is needed and he will always be an independent type.  He is available for a foster or adoptive home, but we would require that the potential adopter come to visit him several times first to get to know him and be sure they are able to deal with this type of cat.  He is capable of biting so can only be around mature adults who understand that he needs to be given space.  We must keep in mind he was surrendered due to being capable of striking out and not considered safe to be around children.  

He would be best as an only-cat or with one female cat as he seems to get along with nondominant females who he ignores but at least has no problem with them.  He needs a 100% indoors home with no assess to the outside as he would be an escape risk.  

He is a great cat for someone who loves cats but does notneed a cuddly cat.  He is an interesting fellow who is happy with lots of quality alone time.  He would be a great "roommate" for someone who is gone to work during the day.  Over time he could be a great companion for the right person.

TORRI THE TORBIE

Torri is a lovely torbie (tabby-tortie combination) girl who hopes there is a quiet and caring person she can learn to trust and who will have the patience to give her a home of her own forever.  She is a healthy spayed female.

Torri may be around 8 but we can't be sure.  She gets along with nondominant cats after she gets to know them.  Torri was very shy at first and hid a lot when we first got her.  Even with coaxing she was not comfortable with people approaching.  We gave her time and space to feel safe.   Gradually Torri allowed gentle petting but she would wince a bit and then run even with gentle approaches.  She would usually disappear as people came near.

With patience Torri has become very trusting of the other cats and is not hiding.   With people she knows she is much less fearful now and allows light petting and only runs from people she doesn't know or if she is startled.    

We feel that in her very own totally 100% indoors (no patio time, screens on windows, etc.) foster or adoptive home, either as an only cat or with a very mellow nondominant cat who likes other cats, she will flourish with patience.  It will be very rewarding to watch a wonderful kitty like Torri evolve with love and time in a quiet home with a person who understands her need to move slowly.   She is not a cuddly lap cat but would be a friendly companion for someone, even if they are gone to work during the day.  We feel she needs patience to develop a trusting relationship. 

Archie

Archie

 
 
 

Archie became a stray after his owner died. He came to us with broken toes and was somewhat in bad condition due to being attacked by other cats. He is FIV positive now after a rough time outside. He is an adult neutered mail and we can only guess at his age at maybe 8 or 9?

It took awhile for Archie to heal and he also had a skin condition that is now under good control with proper food. He is a sweet cat who gets along with other cats but can be dominant and pushy with some. Archie is fine with people he knows but with new people he is not only super shy but can be very very scared. Archie needs a home with an extreme amount of patience as he does not like change at all. After all he has been through and the time he has been here recuperating (fine now though!) he thinks of this as his home and has panicked when meeting new people. With patience he could be a very nice companion.

Archie must be 100% indoors (secure screens in windows and no patio time) as he would be an escape risk due to being easily scared of new circumstances. An apartment or condo with door to a hallway (not outside) and enclosed sunroom would be best for him.

With his FIV positive status he is healthy now. We cannot predict the future but hope he has many years ahead without health issues.

About Madeline

Maddie is a great cat and super affectionate. However, she is currently on three meds for a vomiting problem, one med for thyroid, and has a hernia which is very unusual as her entire bladder is in the hernia! She is under vet care and her problems are under control and she is stable.

She does not do well with other female cats and even if she senses them outside her door she will occasionally pee on something to mark the area. We still have hopes that with a home of her own with no other cats – and kept on her meds – she could be a great cat for a kind and caring person.
