Cats Available for Adoption
The Comics Kittens
SARG received five kittens within 48 hours --
two pairs of siblings and a single.
All were rescued by friends of SARG. As a theme, we're calling them the
Comics Kittens -- names chosen from either Marvel Comics (Mystique,
Freya, Thor) or DC Comics (The Flash and Diana Prince, aka Wonder Woman).
Any one of these little treasures would make a great addition to your
family. All are friendly, happy, sweet little kittens. As we learn more
about each one, we'll update their information on this site.
FREYA AND FLASH
Freya and Flash are 16-week-old siblings (as of 7/19/18) from Morgan
County -- their other sibling was killed by a predator. Flash is a
flashy black boy with a white star on his chest--a very friendly boy who
wants to be held. (We'll have a photo of him in a day or two.) Freya is
a striking white girl with one blue eye and one amber eye. As is true of
about half the cats with this color combination, she appears deaf. But
she's a real little lover as well as gorgeous -- and she loves to pose
for the camera!
THOR AND DIANA PRINCE
Thor and Diana 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.
Diana is a striking dilute calico with unusual markings. She's
independent, but loves cuddling with people or siblings.
Mystique is a 5-week-old Russian blue mix from rural Knox County. Such a
tiny bundle of lovable fur! She loves to be held and is a real beauty.
She spends her time cuddling with Thor and Diana.
Elsa is about 5 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.
Another photo of Elsa.
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.

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.

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: Once we had a plastic strap
from a box--he played with that thing FOREVER and carried it around in
his mouth and to his room. It was hilarious. He is skittish and sudden
moves freak him out a bit. Once you earn his trust, he follows you
around A LOT. He constantly wants to be in the same room I'm in. He's
VERY loving. All he wants is for you to pay attention to him and pet him
A LOT. He is VERY vocal. He's funny. He'll bite at the water coming out
of the water fountain and absolutely LOVES treats. He'll stand up on his
hind legs for them and meows for them too. He does take treats from your
hand gently. We believe someone has abused him. If you're carrying
anything in your hands and walking toward him, he becomes uneasy. If he
gets scared for any reason he'll run under the bed and hide until he
feels safe again.

Leo or Liquid Kitty, as we love to call him, is a 2-year-old,
long-haired tuxedo with a ragdoll personality. He loves to be held and
cuddled and melts into you when you pick him up! Leo sleeps next to his
foster every night. He purrs at the touch of a hand and sits in your lap
while you watch TV or work on the computer. Also, Leo likes to be
brushed, which is a plus for a long-haired kitty. He would be the
perfect companion for someone looking for a lap kitty.

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.

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 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.

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 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.
Amber is a black, spayed female with big amber eyes -- hence her name. She
is a kitty with "attitude," who likes to be in charge. She's being
fostered in a home with two male cats, and she pretty much rules the
household. She had been abandoned by her owner, who left her in an
apartment. She lived with a dog in that household, and had no problems
with a large dog. Amber loves to play, both with toys and with the other
cats. She doesn't like change; a new owner will need to give her a week
or so to adjust to new surroundings. But once she is comfortable, she's
a loving, delightful companion.

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 weigh about 12 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.

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?

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

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
Mack is a medium-haired, smoke tabby baby boy, 7 weeks old as of 6/26/18.
He plays gently, according to his foster mom -- no teeth or claws -- and
he likes to play with pine cones and be with people. He likes other kitties
and is not afraid of storms. He is sure to bring loads of fun into someone's
More photos of Mack.
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

Lady Violet, the Meow-ager Countess, is a sophisticated 4 year old cat
seeking permanent residence at a loving home. Her qualifications include
a calm personality, a snuggly disposition, and a love of her cat and dog
foster siblings. If you are looking for a sweet cuddly companion with
beautiful green eyes, inquire about Lady Violet today!

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!

GRACE AKA DUSTY
Grace, aka Dusty, is such a sweet little black tortoiseshell Persian
girl. She has the most striking copper eyes her foster mom has ever seen
-- and cute, curly whiskers. Grace is 10 years old and came from a
loving home, but her owner passed away and she is now looking for
another family to give her a home. She has all her vet records and is in
great health. Grace loves to cuddle, especially at night. She isn't
bothered by the foster's big dog and doesn't mind other cats either. She
is a very easy-going girl who would fit perfectly into any loving home.

Bravo is a silver and cream swirl tabby. He is 5 months old and has had
some interesting experiences in his young life. Bravo went to a cat show
for agility! Yes, cats do agility too. Bravo was a natural. He placed
4th with a time of 28.85seconds! You can see his video on YouTube!! He
had so much fun running around that course it was crazy. He is now
registered with the CFA (Cat Fanciers' Association) and whenever he
enters another competition he will continue to accrue points towards
higher and higher levels. Bravo lives in a foster home with 2 other
kitties and a big dog! He cuddles every night with the teenage girl.
Bravo is looking for a comfortable lap to snuggle in a and a string toy
someone will wiggle for him to chase. Maybe you might even want to show
him in agility! Such fun.

Looking for a stunning beauty of a cat? Picasso has fur so white it
almost looks lavender and he has brilliant copper eyes -- very unusual
in a cat. His long tail with the question mark at the end and the shape
of his head indicate that he has Siamese or another Oriental breed as
part of his lineage. He's about three years old, gets along well with
other cats, with children, and was with dogs when he was a kitten.
Picasso LOVEs to play, and doesn't mind playing with toys by himself --
he's got energy to burn and just wants to run it off. If you want a
smart, active, loving boy, Picasso could be your new kitty. After he
gets used to new places, he hangs around the family, waiting to be part
of all the action. He has another plus: he's deaf -- he won't hear the
loud TV or the kids shouting. He's just serene through all of it.

Hi, my name is Domino. I'm a little 4-month-old Siamese mix all dressed
up in my black and white tuxedo and half-mustache! I've been told that I
have lots of energy, and while I don't know about that, I can tell you
that not a ball will roll by without a good old pouncing from me! But I
also love to cuddle up at night. Right now, I sleep with my foster
teenager. I love to play as much as cuddle! I also live with a couple
other foster kitties and a giant dog! Golly, he is huge! Luckily for me,
he seems to like us cats. As you can tell, I like to talk! (and purr!
Purring's my favorite!) I will be the first one to greet you at the door
when you come home -- purr, and I love to greet people who ring the
doorbell. That's a really great sound, and you never know, maybe they
will pet me? (purr-purr) I just love to tell everyone about my
adventures. Like the one time I almost fell off the stairs! Well, the
ball was going to escape and I had to make sure it didn't. So, what did
they expect me to do? I leapt and almost leapt right down the entire
flight of stairs! Well I'll have to be a little more careful next time.
Are you looking for a kitty like me? I will love you forever! Purr.

HANSEL AND GRETEL
Once upon a time, there lived 2 baby kittens. Hansel, an orange/buff
medium-haired little man, and his sister Gretel, a medium-haired muted
tortie. They had a rough start and became lost in the woods without any
bread crumbs to find their way home at the young age of 5-7 weeks.
Without bread crumbs for food or guidance, they both became extremely
malnourished. Little Hansel weighed only 4 ounces and even lost the use
of his back legs. Gretel was in much better shape at 1.25 pounds.
Luckily, with her loving encouragement and determination, after
a while they happened upon a mysterious house filled with treats
in the middle of the woods. This house of treats wasn't occupied by a
bad witch, but a good witch and her husband. Their hosts knew how dire
the situation was, and they did everything within their magical powers
to bring Hansel and his sister back to health. Little Gretel bounced
back quickly with lots of snacks and meals. Little Hansel needed much
more hands-on care. He almost didn't pull through, but the couple was
able to bring him very slowly back to health with luck and with his
sister's loving support. Soon he was regaining the use of his tiny back
legs. After a while, the two kittens were finally able to meet the rest
of the house's furry members. The home was filled with 8 other kitties
of all ages. The oldest, gentlest, and wisest kitty had been able to
join them sooner than the rest, and he taught them all about kitty ways.
The home also had 3 large, scary beasts they called dogs. After a while
the kittens learned to trust these rowdy big protectors, brother much
sooner than sister. Hansel now has full use of his back legs. He is
daring and adventurous, with the heart of a lion. Gretel has a strong
personality and keeps her brother in line. She is more cautious, but she
warms up quickly to new friends and situations. They are about 7 months
old as of December 2017, and they are now looking for their happy ending
and a new, treat-filled forever home. They can be adopted as a pair or
individually, but they would love to stay together. Both are up to date
on all shots, altered, microchipped, and fully vetted.

UNSINKABLE MOLLY BROWN
Molly Brown was adopted as soon as she came to us!
Katie is a 9-year-old calico kitty who is declawed on her front paws.
Unlike some calicos, who can have a bit of an attitude, Katie is very
sweet and affectionate and loves to be petted and held. She weighs a bit
over 9 pounds and has a very soft, strikingly colorful coat. She
probably would be most happy as an only kitty.

"Do you believe in love at first sight? You've only seen my photo,
and I'm already convinced that you will love me! My name is Isabella, and
I'm a 9 years young Maine coon mix. I enjoy long toy chases through the
living room and moonlit naps in my cat tree. I have dog and cat foster
siblings with whom I love to nap. Nothing scares me, and I am friendly to
every new person I meet. You should be warned, I am an extreme marathon
snuggler! My foster mom says that I sometimes act more like a dog than a
cat because I love to be around her all the time. I follow her while she
cooks and cleans and sit with her any time I get the chance! So what do
you think? Will you give me a chance to be your forever kitty?"
