Bailey (Born in 2002)
Bailey resides in Tuxedo Junction's special “Pee Palace” because he tends to mark his territory or have accidents outside the box. He is painfully shy around anyone he is not familiar with.
Ellie (Born in 2003)
We have never heard of autism in cats, but this is the closest way we can think of to describe Ellie's special personality traits. She seems to not quite know how to be a cat.
Brandi (Born in 2004)
Brandi is such a pretty girl, but she never outgrew her fear of people. She so much wants to be friends with other cats, but she is scared of them, too! Most other cats can sense this, and they harass her. So she tends to keep a very low profile, although she does enjoy playing with toys when she thinks no one's watching.
Brandi has progressed to the point that she does not always run when a human enters the room, and if the human will lie down, she might even come close enough to get head scratches and tummy rubs.
Brandi gets prescription food to prevent bladder stones, for which she had surgery a few years ago.
In addition to being very scared of most people, even when she is able to relax with a human, she doesn't show affection or pleasure in typical kitty ways. It took her over two years with us before she figured out how to purr!
Ellie receives medication for arthritis, but is in good health otherwise.
(Born in 2007)
Available for Adoption
Friendly and talkative, Spencer is fun to hang out with. He enjoys chattering at the birds he sees outside the window, and although he is not particularly snuggly, he recently has been checking out human laps for brief periods.
Spencer is in good health, is neutered, tested neg/neg for Felv/FIV, microchipped, and is up to date on vaccinations.
Tess (Born in 2007)
Available for Adoption
Tess thinks she is a feral cat, although she enjoys all the perks of living safely indoors, including three squares a day, sunny windowsills, and toys (especially balls). She was found as a stray and came in to Tuxedo Junction with a leg injury, but after her recovery and attempts to socialize her to humans, she has remained stubbornly anti-human for the most part.
Tess is available for adoption to someone who is familiar with pseudo-feral cats and doesn't mind being hissed at! It is possible that in a different setting she might come around to some extent, but anyone who takes her in would need to be willing to love her just the way she is today. She is very fond of Owen and Spencer, and would likely have fewer adjustment issues if adopted with either of them.
Tess has lost her top teeth to dental disease, but she has no trouble eating – in fact, she is on the chubby side! Otherwise, she's in good health, has been spayed, tested neg/neg for Felv/FIV, microchipped, and is up to date on vaccinations.
Gracie (Born in 2002)
Gracie is a cheerful kitty despite chronic eye and sinus problems that cause congestion and a nagging cough. She is very tolerant of the frequent face-washings she must have to keep her face clean from her eye discharge is as sweet as can be!
Avery (Born in 2002)
Rescued as a scrawny, malnourished kitten, Avery grew into big, friendly boy, with a squeaky meow that doesn't match his heftiness. He adapted well to being partially blind in one eye from an injury that occurred when he was small. He receives daily medication for hyperesthesia.
Avery was a little scrawny kitten living in a tree whose entire family had fallen victim to coyotes.
Today, as seen on the left, he's a big happy boy whose lack of clear vision in his right eye and hyperesthesia does not prevent him from enjoying life.
