Cats Available for Adoption

AMBER

Amber
Amber (age 8) only wants one thing in life: a person of her own. When Amber was abandoned in an empty apartment, SARG stepped in. She’s been in a foster home since then. The foster mom loves this little girl, but Amber wants and needs a person of her own. In her foster situation, she has to share a person with several other kitties. Amber wants her own place, her own person. She could share with one (maybe two). If one calls her to come for attention, she comes on the run, burbling her excitement (and occasionally drooling...just a little bit!). She talks as long as she’s being petted, turning and rubbing against her person. And when no other cats come around, she’ll settle down, cuddling close to her human friend to sleep. But when another kitty arrives, that’s Amber’s signal to walk away. Amber is able to live with other cats, and she lived with a dog before she was rescued, but she needs a loving person of her own.

EVA

Eva
Eva is a striking white girl with one blue eye and one amber eye. Despite being all white, she is not deaf. She had been adopted but has returned to SARG because of allergies in the home. She's a real little lover as well as gorgeous -- and she loves to pose for the camera! She was born in the spring of 2018, one of three siblings who were strays in Morgan County. One of the siblings was killed by a predator, but Eva and her brother were taken in by SARG.

HAN SOLO

Han Solo
Han Solo is two-pound, grey-and-white 8-week-old kitten (as of 11-6-2018) who wants to be held almost all day. He loves everyone he meets but is not overly fond of dogs. He is a cuddly handful of cuteness with long legs and beautiful grey and white markings. We think he will be a very tall and long kitty.
More photos of Han Solo.


WALL-E

Wall-e
Wall-e is the class clown. He is a 2-year-old, medium-haired grey tabby with a huge plumed tail! We believe he is very hard of hearing. But what he lacks in hearing he makes up for in personality. Since he doesn't hear the vacuum, he loves to chase it and also be vacuumed by it! His foster mom often comes into the kitchen to find Wall-e lying on his back with his feet sprawled out behind him -- affectionately she calls him "dead kitty" -- but he is just asking for a belly rub! Wall-e loves attention and will follow you all around the house. He gets along well with other cats, and dogs don't bother him a bit. In fact, Wall-e loves dogs and barking doesn't bother him at all. If you are looking for a kitty that will make you laugh, look no further, Wall-e is the kitty for you!

BAGHEERA

Bagheera
Bagheera is a 2-year-old male domestic long-haired cat looking for a forever home! A true panther at heart, he loves sitting in windows and stalking squirrels! He loooooves people and is very tolerant of dogs, but would probably be happiest as an only cat.
More photos of Bagheera.


BINX

Binx
My name is Binx. I'm a big, loving, short-haired tabby boy, approximately 8 years old and weighing 15 pounds. I'm affectionate--I love to be petted and kissed on the head, and I enjoy spending time with my human peeps! I'm a talker and absolutely love playing in a water fountain. I love looking out the window where there are so many fascinating things to see! I prefer a home with no other kitties. I get more attention that way! My foster says: Binx loves spending time with us on the sofa in the evenings. Once he gets all comfy he'll roll over on his back and stretch out, it's hilarious!! He has A LOT of personality and is VERY affectionate. He desires to be in the same room with you hanging out whether you're cooking, eating, or watching TV. Usually if I lie down on the sofa he'll jump up and lie down in front of me and go to sleep. He truly just desires to be loved and to feel safe. If you're carrying anything in your hands and walking toward him, he sometimes becomes uneasy. If he gets scared for any reason he'll run under the bed and hide until he feels safe again. He loves his water fountain!! He'll bite at the water coming out, stick his head sideways and lick the water coming out, or put his paw in the stream of water, then bring it up to his mouth. I laugh every time I see him do it. If you are interested in adopting Binx from SARG, please call Jan Baker 612-382-2832 or Angie Chance 423-384-4658. Large, covered litter box, pet bed and water fountain are included with adoption.

EBONY

Ebony
Ebony is a very sweet, short-haired black cat. She is a one-year-old polydactyl with a stub tail (possible Manx mix?). Polydactyl cats have been popular among sailors as ship's cats and are thought to bring good luck at sea. They are also known as Hemingway's cats since he became fascinated with them after being given one by a ship captain. He named her Snow White and she had numerous kittens, about half of which were polydactyl. As Hemingway wrote in a letter, "One cat just leads to another." Even if you are not a sailor or a famous author, Ebony could still be the cat for you.

BONNIE

Bonnie
Gentle, sweet-natured Bonnie has been nurtured and treasured by her senior companion for this kitty's whole life. Bonnie has lived with her elderly companion in a nursing home for a couple of years, but sadly, her companion is struggling with dementia and is no longer able to provide the care that Bonnie needs. This middle-aged kitty (age 10) loves to snuggle in her hand-crocheted blanket made by her owner. Although Bonnie would probably be happiest as an only pet, she can learn to adapt to dogs -- even large ones, particiularly when they are older, quiet dogs. Bonnie is a beautiful, sweet kitty looking for a new family and a new home. She'll reward you with snuggles, gratitude, and love.
More photos of Bonnie.


LUNA

Luna
Luna is a pretty, black kitty with striking white whiskers and eyebrows. She is almost 2 years old as of February 1, 2017. She prefers a quiet household without dogs or young children for her forever home, although she does well with the other cats in her foster home. Her foster mom has decided that Luna would be a great companion for a person who is a night-owl; she is at her friendliest late at night and comes to be petted and share the couch.

HEIDI

Heidi
If you want a cat with loads of personality, then Heidi is the cat for you. She loves to play -- especially if it involves chasing around the room with a sock (who needs expensive cat toys?), but she also loves to snuggle in bed with you at night. Heidi likes to help you with the computer, and she often adds to your emails with her own original compositions when she walks across the keyboard. Heidi is fine with other cats and is ok with dogs, but would probably do better in a dog-free house. She is great about using the litter box. As you can see from the photos, Heidi has beautiful white and orange coloring, riveting green eyes, and a very unusual tail which lies almost flat across her back -- adding to her adorable quirkiness. Heidi is probably not the cat for you if you are bothered by loud purring, which she will do whenever you give her some attention. Please help her find the forever home she is waiting for.

ROSEMARY

Rosemary
Rosemary is about 1½ years old. If you've ever had a calico, you understand Rosemary's temperament. The vet calls her "saucy." She loves being around people. She is not a lap cat but loves to hang out with you wherever you are. Whether you are working on the computer or sitting on the couch reading a book, Rosemary is sure to be there sitting next to you. She really loves attention and would do well in a home where she would get a lot of human interaction. We think she is part Norwegian forest cat. The cold weather is no deterrent to her spending time on the screened-in porch.
More photos of Rosemary.


CARTER

Carter
My name is Carter and I'm a beautiful light orange tabby with pale green eyes. I have very soft, silky fur and love being petted. I'm about 2 years old and a big boy -- I weigh about 17 pounds. I'm a very confident, social and loving boy. You know I'm happy and in love when you hear me purr! Toys are great fun and I love those little squiggly plastic cat toys! My potty manners are excellent! I live in a foster home with six other cats and 3 German shepherds. I have adjusted very well to being an indoor cat. My foster mom has a sun porch that I can access from inside the house and I've gotten quite skilled at using the cat door. I love watching birds from the window and snoozing on the cat tree. I love to play and would be happier with another cat to play with. My foster mom keeps a bowl of fresh water in the bathtub, and I love to get fresh water there every morning. It is so much better than drinking out the same water bowl as the dogs.

MORRIS

Morris
Morris is a male orange-swirl tabby, and possibly a Manx mix, since his tail is only about 2 inches long. He is about 4 years old and was a stray in the Wear's Valley area who wanted to come inside. Morris does love to play with string, laser and toys; really loves catnip on his scratch box and toys. He was quite a wild child when he came to his foster home, but has calmed down and gets along pretty well with the other cats. He does fine with the dogs in the home -- two very large German shepherds. He does not like to be picked up, but does sleep on the bed and will cuddle. He likes to lie on a person, especially early in the morning. He loves being petted and does get in laps, but is a work-in-progress on becoming a true lap cat. He loves the cat tree on the sun porch and talks to the birds outside. He's a striking boy with his classic swirl tabby pattern in dark red-orange and his half-length tail.

GODIVA

Godiva
Godiva is a very loving cat who loves to come and see what you are doing. She is 3½ years old as of January, 2017. She enjoys being petted, especially when you are reading or lying down. Godiva also loves to play with anything that has a bell or a feather. She will jump for the toys and come running when she hears the bell. She likes to be active and is naturally curious. Godiva has moved to Louisville, KY, with her foster mom. She is still available for adoption through SARG as always, but we can arrange a meeting with her foster mom in Louisville.

Happy Tails -- Cats Adopted or Pending


CHEWY

Chewy
I'm so little! Only 1.5 pounds! I'll fit in your hand and I love doing that. They named me Chewy because I'm so fluffy and cute! And I love to cuddle, so that's an added bonus. I'm only 6 weeks old as of 11-5-2018 and I'd love to find a forever home with someone who would cuddle me and play with me too.
More photos of Chewy.


MILO

Milo
Milo -- named after the kitten in the movie, "Milo and Otis" was discovered at a nearby park, alone, emaciated and covered with parasites and black oil of some kind. The folks at the animal shelter were not sure he would survive, but Milo is a tough little creature, and he is now thriving. Milo is about 8 months old, has a lovely soft champagne coat, is wonderful at using the litter box, and is great with dogs and other cats. He is curious, into everything and extremely entertaining to watch. But most of all, he is a lap-cat. He will just jump into your lap and lie there, purring contently. This is a bit of a problem if you need to get up, but a very sweet problem to have. Please consider opening your home and your heart to this very special young cat.

BAXTER

Baxter
Baxter is a handsome, declawed, ginger Maine coon who loves being petted. He is 8 years old, super friendly, and wants to be around people. He is ok with other cats and previously lived in a home with small children and a dog. During the routine vet check, it was discovered that he is diabetic. He is now on a special diet and gets an insulin shot twice a day. His foster mom reports that giving him the shot is easy. It's much easier that giving a pill to a cat. He gets the shot in the scruff of his neck while he's eating. He doesn't even flinch.

GEORGE

George
George is a grey tabby, about 13-15 weeks old as of 9-14-18. George loves to slither and flop until he finds the perfect spot on your chest to snuggle. Especially after he's had a good play session of fetch with his favorite sparkly crinkle toys! Yes, he actually carries the toy back and drops it in his foster mom's hand to throw! He's not much of a talker, but when he does use his voice, it's the prettiest trilling sound! He's always happy to see his foster mom, and no matter how playful he is, he's very gentle with his teeth and claws.
More photos of George.


ELSA

Elsa
Elsa is about 7 months old and was a stray found in Oak Ridge. We know that her mom was a Siamese, so she is a Siamese mix. She is great with dogs (see her gallery), friendly, and doesn't mind being held. Her foster family's pit bull mix, Zoe, has claimed her as her own.
More photos of Elsa.


CELINE

Celine
Celine, named for Celine Dion, is a 2- or 3-year-old Himalayan who has spent her life on the street until now. She is a polydactyl with extra toes in front. This sweet girl ended up a mommy several times. Now she's spayed, has her shots and is ready for a protected life as an indoor kitty. She's a beauty and just as sweet as she is pretty -- she is a real love-bug.
More photos of Celine.


FLASH

Flash
Flash is a flashy black boy with a white star on his chest--a very friendly boy who wants to be held. He was born in the spring of 2018, one of three siblings who were strays in Morgan County. One of the siblings was killed by a predator, but Flash and his sister were taken in by SARG.

ECHO

Echo
Meet Echo! The video below shows his long journey from a very, very sick, stray kitty to his current happy and healthy state in his foster home. We'll have more details about him soon.

NOELLE

Noelle
Noelle is a gorgeous, long-haired three-year-old cat with mesmerizing green eyes, a soft silvery coat, and a beautiful fluffy tail. When she first came to SARG she was a little nervous around people, but time and some loving attention have completely transformed her into an affectionate, sweet companion. She does fine with other cats and dogs, although she might do best with older children. Noelle is completely litter-box trained, and she even helps her foster mom when her mom writes on the computer! Won't you be the person to give this lovely cat the forever home she deserves?

THOR AND WONDER WOMAN

Thor Wonder Woman

Thor and Wonder Woman are 6-week-old siblings (as of 7/19/18) from rural Knox County. Thor is a cuddly little boy who just wants to be held and loved. Wonder is a striking dilute calico with unusual markings. She's independent, but loves cuddling with people or siblings. Her foster mom says "Wonder is having a blast. She plays and plays then wants to sit on me and sleep. She wants to be where I am always. She loves playing with feather toys and entertains herself for hours. She loves affection when she's ready to rest and wants to sleep next to her person. Her favorite activity is watching YouTube cat videos on the cellphone. She's a lot of fun to have around."

Eddie is 6 weeks old as of 5/13/18, male, friendly, and lively. He has extra toes -- a polydactyl or Hemingway cat -- so his feet look huge!
