Cats Available for Adoption


Midnight is a super-sweet, 12-week-old (as of 3-31-2019) oriental-mix kitten. He loves to cuddle up to you and also run around chasing his feather. He makes us laugh with his antics -- jumping and flipping to grab that feather. Midnight is such a little guy, but he isnít afraid of anything, even the 80-pound Labradoodle he lives with. Someone is going to be very lucky to adopt little Midnight.

Heidi is a sweet, loving 2-year-old cat with a touch of sassiness. She sports the orange and white colors of the Tennessee Vols and she even loves chasing the laser pointer light around the house, as though it was a football. But anyway, who needs football, when you have an entertaining cat like Heidi to play with? She gets along beautifully with other cats in the house and is fine with dogs. And she is used to being around children. Heidi loves to cuddle and purr and will follow you around the house like a little affectionate shadow. She is perfectly litter- box trained. Heidi would love to find her furrever home. Won't you be the one to give it to her?

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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 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 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


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.


Shadow is a tiny, 12-week-old (as of 3-31-2019) little oriental-mix kitten. As his name says, he is your shadow. He loves to play any game you are involved in, especially if it includes a feather toy. Shadow will also curl up on your bed at night and cuddle to your heart's content. He is such a funny character, bounding all over to discover new adventures. He is the perfect mix of playful and cuddly that everyone is looking for.

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.

Personality and looks...what more could you ask for? Frank Sinatra is so-named because of his beautiful blue eyes, but his foster mom prefers to call him Frankie. Frankie is a stunning and very sweet flame-point Siamese. He is one year old, loves to cuddle and play, and is wonderful at using the litter box. If you are a lover of the Siamese breed and are a sucker for amazing blue eyes, then this might be the cat for you!

Han Solo
Han Solo is a 5-month-old, grey-and-white tuxedo kitten with a wonderful personality. He is the right mix between playful and cuddly that everyone is looking for. He loves to sleep by your side at night and cuddle up for a nap on your lap while you watch tv, but when the red dot makes an appearance he is all play, chasing that little dot until he falls over tired. Han loves his water drinking fountain, drinking out of it and playing in it as well. He is very tall for his age and we believe he will be a tall thin cat. Dogs don't seem to bother him and he is friends with all other cats. He will make a great addition to any home.

Are you looking for a Maine coon mix? This handsome MC boy might just be what you're looking for! Shamrock came to us near death after a severe mauling by another cat or another animal. He was a stray, taken to the local shelter, and then immediately to a nearby vet. No one expected him to survive. But he did. So we named him Shamrock -- for luck. This boy is a fighter, and now he'd like to find a forever indoor home. He loves people, loves attention, loves to play. He accepts other cats and is tolerant of dogs. We consider him a special needs kitty because he's FIV positive. However, the most recent research about putting FIV and non-FIV cats together shows that the two types can co-exist well with no danger to the non-FIV cat. You can read the results of a recent study here. And if you already have an FIV kitty, Shamrock could be the perfect companion for your cat. He's about five years old, so he has a lot of years left -- even if he has used a couple of his nine lives!

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.

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.

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 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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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."
