Nalla arrived alongside her big brother Biggie immediately after her surgery. Upon her arrival, she was very timid and wary of her surroundings, but this soon changed. Nalla is a curious but shy kitty. She is always interested in everything that is going on around her, but she is not always willing to participate in the activities. Although she loves to be petted she is does not feel comfortable coming to you for affection; she would rather be approached slowly. Once she is comfortable, however, she absolutely loves the affection! Like her brother, she loves to flop onto her back and enjoy a nice massage. Her very soft purr is quite soothing. Nalla’s favorite pastime is playing with toys. She loves a feather and string toy where she can run and jump to catch the feather, and really enjoys teaming up with her brother to play. In play, she is quite bold and will take the lead, but in a relaxed social setting she would rather sit by herself and take in the action. Nalla’s favorite place to be is curled up on a cozy bed for a day long nap. She will make a wonderful addition to a gentle and caring family. I would guess she would prefer to be around adults and older children who wouldn’t startle her as easily.
Nalla need to find a forever home ASAP, she is in Foster Care, please contact the shelter if you are interested in Nalla or her brother Biggie.

Biscuit "Biggie"

Biscuit, whom is now 'Biggie' is a very large and formidable kitty weighing a healthy 10.5 lbs. Biggie arrived to my home immediately after his surgery and was quite nervous and wary of his new surroundings. Within a few hours he was exploring his new home albeit with some hesitation. Once he was recovered from his surgery, he became bolder in his explorations and was soon coming out to the living room to greet me, have a snack, and check out his new housemates. Upon three days of his arrival, Biggie adjusted and became a new, healthy, happy, affectionate kitty. As soon as I enter from my day at work, I can count on Biggie greeting me at the door and looking for some affection time. His favorite thing to do is flop onto my feet, roll on his belly, and purr while I pet his lovely soft, furry coat. He has adjusted to his new surroundings with ease and happiness. Not once have I heard a hiss nor a meow, and I know that Biggie appreciates his new home and his big breakfast each and every morning. He is an absolute joy to be around and I feel completely confident that he will make a fantastic kitty to any new and caring family. He gets along well with other cats and, although initially timid, he very much enjoys the company of any and all caring humans.
Biscuit needs a forever home ASAP, he is presently in foster care. Please contact the Shelter if you are interested in this lovely cat.

Spring additions for the Shelter

This photo is a new kitten that had been just born recently, just a reminder of the issues the Shelter will be dealing with in the Spring. Springtime is a time for new energy and excitement but also brings litters and litters of unwanted kittens. If everyone would spayed and neutered more cats the general poplulation of kittens could become more manageable.
