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.

Chloe came to Suzie’s Cat Refuge on 4/22/19. Her owner was no longer, financially in a position to care for her, and they were having to move in a hurry. Had we not taken her in, she would have been release outside and left to her devices. Chloe was about 8 years old at the time of intake, and she is spayed, up to date on shots, and tested FLV/FIV negative. Sadly, she is front-declawed. She was pretty cranky when she first moved to her foster home, but has really come around! Especially after getting some painful fur mats shaved off. She has turned into a real love bug, and is ready to go to her forever home. She has a known history of living peacefully with a dog. We are still determining if she likes cats.
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.
Status: Adoption pending!
Erin came to us on 1/9/19 from a local shelter, where she was in danger of being euthanized because she wasn’t getting along well in the stressful shelter environment. She was originally found abandoned in an apartment with several other cats. She was approximately 8 months old at the time we brought her in. She is spayed, up to date on shots, and tested FLV/FIV negative at the shelter. In her foster home, she has been sweet and affectionate, but mildly skittish, and hesitant with people she doesn’t know. She is also incredibly playful and energetic, and she has lots of fun playing with the other cats in her foster home. A quiet home with one or two adults, and children over the age of 10 would be ideal for her. She has no known history with dogs, but we suspect she would do fine, as long as they are introduced properly.
Adoption Fee: $100
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.
