Scarlet (formerly named Tinsel)
Adoption Fee: $125
Scarlet came to us on 12/31/19. She was surrendered to AHS by a person who had found her outside, and kept her in their home for about a month. She was reported to be friendly, but also a little skittish. At AHS, she liked to be petted, but would not come out of hiding, which makes her a far more suitable candidate for a foster-based rescue. Scarlet’s foster mama has diligently worked with her, and has turned her into a cuddly, affectionate kitty that loves to be petted. She still likes to hide, and is still skittish, but has shown to be playful, easy handle, and affectionate with someone she knows. Scarlet was about five months old, as of 1/20/20.
Lila May (formerly named Kitty)
Adoption fee: $50
Don’t be fooled by the scowly expression! We assure you, Lila May is a real peach. In our defense, we haven’t had her all that long, and so we don’t have a good quality photo album for her, quite yet. She is lovely though, as you can see. Lila May (Kitty) came to us on 12/17/19. She was surrendered to AHS because a member of her family was allergic. She was reported to be friendly, but not fond of getting belly rubs. She was friendly for a while at the shelter, but grew overstimulated from too much human interaction, and was offered to rescue partners, because she’s a better fit for a foster home environment. In the time that she’s been with us, she has shown to be very friendly and mellow, but not fond of other cats. Lila May has not lived with children, and we believe she would do best in a home with one or two quiet adults. As of 1/20/20, she is approximately 12 years old.
Adoption fee: $125
Tormund was part of a feral family that we trapped during the summer of 2019. Most of his litter proved to be quite stubborn, and Tormond, so far, is the only one to become social enough to be placed for adoption. As of 1/20/20, he is approximately 8 months old. He is playful, affectionate, and quite adorable. He’s a little hesitant around people he doesn’t know, but just sit quietly, allow him to sniff you, and he warms up very quickly. We believe he would do great in a home with other cats, and one or two quiet adults. Young children would probably be a little too much for him, but one or two older children would probably be okay.
Adoption fee: $100
Pumpkin was brought in as a stray on 10/21/19. We thought she might be feral, as she would not allow us to approach her. We caught her in a live trap, and brought her to the vet, where we learned that she is approximately one year old, already spayed, but not microchipped. Upon being brought indoors, we discovered that she’s incredibly sweet and friendly. She seems to want the indoor life. As no one has come forward to claim her as theirs, we are placing her for adoption. We believe that Pumpkin would do best in a home with no other cats, but would probably do fine with children over the age of seven. She has a mellow personality. Loves to be picked up and cuddle in laps, and she is very easy to handle.
Adoption Fee: $50
Tinker Bell came to us on 10/7/19. We pulled her from an AHS shelter, where she was not thriving. In her foster home, she has become sweet, cuddly, and playful, although she gets a little cranky with too much petting. We believe Tinker Bell would do best in a quiet home with one or two adults, and children over the age of 12. It is unknown whether she gets along with dogs or cats, but we would be willing to try her in a home with maybe only one, very mellow cat or dog. She is spayed, up-to-date on shots, FLV/FIV negative, and not declawed. She was believed to be approximately 9 years old upon intake.
Adoption Fee: $75
Maxy came to us on 1/16/19. He was in danger of being euthanized in a local shelter, because he was very scared, and not getting along well in the shelter environment. Originally, he came from a home where there were too many animals. While there, he was exposed to another cat that tested positive for FLV, but Maxy has been tested and retested, and he is negative. Within one week at Suzie’s Cat Refuge, he blossomed into a sweet, lovable boy! He loves other cats, but he’s shy around people he doesn’t know. He was, at one point, suffering from digestive issues as well as skin inflammations, which we believe were due to a combination of food sensitivities, and overgrooming behavior, which he might have simply been doing out of boredom. We have him on a good quality wet food, which has resolved his digestive issues, and his over-grooming problem ceased, once we paired him up with another cat, who, like Maxy, is a friendly, active, and playful cat. We believe Maxy would do best in a home with at least one other friendly and playful young cat, and no small children. He was approximately 1-2 years old at the time we brought him in. He is neutered, and up-to-date on vaccinations.
Adoption Fee: $75
Jack was found as a stray, and brought to Suzie’s Cat Refuge on 10/28/18, unfixed, underweight and very hungry, but lots of love in his heart. He was scanned for a chip, but none was found, and every effort was made to find an owner. He has shown to be a very sweet cuddly boy, although hesitant around strangers. He loves other cats, although cats that value their personal space might find him a bit much. He would be best suited for households with other young cats that don’t mind a lot of rough play. His FIV/FLV combo test was negative, and he has already been dewormed, and neutered. Upon evaluation, it was noted that he has severe gingivitis that will likely lead to stomatitis, a painful inflammation of the gums that will most likely result in the loss of all his teeth. Eventually, he will probably require a full-mouth dental extraction. He recently underwent surgery to have four of his teeth removed. Once all of Maxy’s teeth are gone, the inflammation should clear, and he may simply need to be on a wet-food-only diet. Jack was approximately 1-2 years old at the time we took him in.
Adoption Fee: $100
Ladybird came to Suzie’s Cat Refuge on 12/12/18. We pulled her from a local shelter where she would have been euthanized, because she was stressed and not getting along in the shelter environment. She was surrendered to the shelter because she had been living in home where there were too many animals. Ladybird is approximately 10 months old. She spayed, up-to-date on shots, and FLV/FIV negative, but she’s currently a little underweight, and recently recovered from an upper respiratory infection, which most likely resulted from shelter stress. Since she has been in her foster home, we have found her to be sweet, playful, and full of sass. She loves to be petted on her head and back, and she has a very loud purr! She can be mildly nippy at times, but they are mostly just love nibbles, and she’s never bitten hard enough to break the skin. She sometimes tolerates being picked up, but it’s not her favorite thing. She loves to chase string and mouse toys, and she enjoys interacting with the other cats in her foster home. Her history around children and dogs is unknown, but we suspect that older kids are probably okay, and dogs may be as well, with proper, slow introductions.
