Cats Available for Adoption

HELP!
Meet a special SARG kitty who needs a long-term foster home. A permanent foster provides love and food and litter and care. SARG provides for the medical needs. (...See more adoptable cats following Belle ...)



BELLE

Belle
Belle is about 16 years old. She was originally a SARG kitty, adopted by an older lady who now can no longer care for Belle. So Belle came back to us, as do all SARG kitties that can no longer be cared for by their adopters. Belle loves to be around people. For a short time, she was in a Humane Society in Jefferson County where she had the run of the place -- other cats were in cages. Belle was a greeter, sitting on the couch. She would probably work best in a home where she's the only pet, but she can tolerate other four-legged critters if they leave her alone. Belle has hyperthyroidism and needs daily medication, but the vets tell us she's good about taking it.

Please help us find a long-term foster home for Belle!




ROGUE

Rogue
Hi, I'm Rogue. My five sisters and I were born on approximately July 25, 2022. I decided to be different from my sisters -- I'm the only grey girl of the bunch! I too was one on the smaller girls, but I continue to grow like a weed. I am very affectionate and I love to play. I am great with other cats and kittens (especially my sisters) and I do not show any fear of dogs. I am litter-box trained and I love my wet and dry cat food. I will be spayed in the near future, but I am up-to-date on vaccines for my age. I am also current on my flea-control and heartworm-prevention medicines. I have a corneal scar from when I was sick when I first came to my rescue home. However, I'm told this should not cause any further issues for me.

SHORT TAIL

Short Tail
Do you want a cat who is eager to help you with whatever you are doing? If so, we have the cat for you. Short Tail is an orange tuxedo tabby Manx mix bob-tail. He is about a year old (as of 5/9/2022). Those gorgeous amber eyes will just melt your heart. He is very friendly and he views every lap as a place to cuddle. He loves people and gets along with other cats. We haven’t tried him with dogs. If you aren’t doing something that he thinks needs his expertise, he is often found sitting on the screened porch or by a window, observing the activities of the birds and chipmunks in the yard. His other favorite activity is wrestling with Long Tail.

LONG TAIL

Long Tail
Long Tail is an orange tabby Manx mix half-tail/bob-tail cat. He’s about a year old (as of 5/8/2022). He is shy so it takes a while for him to warm up to new people. Once he does, he loves to be petted. Long Tail does get along with other cats; we’ve not tried him with dogs. Besides observing nature from various windows and the screen porch, his favorite activity is wrestling with Short Tail. He would do best in a home with just one or two people.

JAKE

Jake
I’m Jake and I love to play! I’m a grey tabby kitten, about 9-10 weeks old as of early August. My brother Elwood and I love to run wild around the house, jumping and flipping and just having fun. When I get tired, I want to sit on my foster parent’s chest near their neck and just cuddle. You can say I’m a bit of a cuddle bug. I love all sorts of toys but my favorite is an empty paper bag or box. My foster Dad says I’m a good boy when I get my nails clipped. This week I get a new foster sister who is a dog, so we’ll see soon how well I get along with her.

ELWOOD

Elwood
I’m Elwood and I’m the adventurous and frisky one of this duo. I love to run and chase my brother Jake. I’m a grey tabby kitten, about 9-10 weeks old as of early August, and I am really full of energy. My two favorite things in life right now are playing and eating. I really do love food, any food, I don’t care. I love to cuddle after playing hard, but I’m also independent and like to do my own thing at times as well. I don’t mind getting my nails clipped, I’m pretty good. This week I get to find out how much I like dogs, I’m always up for an adventure!

ONYX

Onyx
Large, perky ears. A face shaped like a narrow piece of pie. A long body with an even longer, narrow tail. Legs with springs in them. All of this spells "Siamese." Even though Onyx is black, it's pretty obvious that he's one of those kitties called the Black Siamese -- all the body and behavior signs, wrapped up in glossy black fur. Onyx was born on or around 4/21/22, so he's in that active teenage stage where he's learning all about the world. He loves to play (of course ... he's a kitten!) and plays actively with the three adult male cats in his foster home. But in the evenings, he wants to cuddle on foster mom's lap, and is perfectly willing to wedge his way past the older cats on the lap to get the most space. If you're looking for love in a shiny black package, little Onyx may be the boy for you.

Happy Tails -- Cats Adopted or Pending

FLUFFY

Fluffy
Have you ever wanted a sweet, gentle, older Maine coon mix kitty? If so, Fluffy (aka Prince) may be the fur boy for you! A brown tabby Maine-coon mix, he came to SARG when his owner died. This lovable boy had been much loved by his owner, who had taught Fluffy to "shake." The accompanying video shows the owner and Fluffy demonstrating that “"trick." Fluffy has been around other cats in his previous home. Since he lived with a single man, we know he does well with men, and he relates well with the female staff at the vet clinic where he's currently boarding. Fluffy is a healthy boy -- he's been thoroughly checked and tested by our vets. We believe he's between 8 and 10 years old. And of course, he's up to date on his shots and is microchipped. If you’ve always wanted a Maine-coon mix kitty, here's your chance!

FRANKLIN

Franklin
Franklin wants nothing more than to hang out with his humans on their lap and get lots of active cuddles in! However, he's also happy to chill out alone when you're gone. His favorite spot to hang out when he’s alone is looking out the window at the bird feeder. Though occasionally playful, he's not the kind of cat you need to buy a lot of toys for. A warm bed or lap, and some tasty food, is about all it takes to make him happy. He would likely do better in a quieter home and seems to be scared of dogs, but he may be all right with other cats if introduced at his own pace. Franklin is truly a special little dude with a funny little personality and would be a great companion for someone looking for a lap cat. When he meows he opens his mouth really wide, and it makes it look like he's screaming, but the smallest, gentlest meow comes out instead. His sweet little serious face and big tomcat head will win you over immediately. You can find him on Instagram at @kingfranklinthefoster to see more videos—pictures don’t do him justice.

BUBBLES

Bubbles
Bubbles is a fun, energetic, short-haired, grey tabby about 3½ months old as of 8-13-2022. Given the features of his tall, large ears with small tips, and long narrow pointy face, we believe him to be part Siamese. He is a huge lover and a wonderful LAP CAT! Even at the young age of only 3½ months he loves to cuddle in a lap and purr forever. He has a buddy to play with in his foster home named Squeak. Bubbles and Squeak play very well together. Bubbles purrs all the time and is very cuddly with a giant personality. His foster mom is always laughing at something he is doing, and it’s super fun to watch him play with a string toy. Bubbles would do best in a home with another kitten or young cat who will play with him.

SQUEAK

Squeak
Squeak is an adorable Maine-coon mix, brown-and-white kitten. His face is all white, called a piebald marking, and he makes cute squeaky noises, so his name was easy. Squeak is around 10 weeks old and 3½ pounds. Thats big for his age, so he is going to be a big kitty. Squeak is a little fluffy ball of energy. His favorite thing to do right now is run around and play with his toys, which sometimes include his foster brothers. He gets along well with both the foster family's cats and dogs. But when this little kitten has had his fill of playtime, he is the perfect cuddle buddy. If you like a kitty that makes biscuits, then Squeak is the one for you. When he is ready to settle down from playing he is the biggest biscuit maker his foster mom has ever seen. Air biscuits, biscuits on your tummy, biscuits in the crook of your neck, biscuits everywhere. He will even burrow in the crook of her arm and make biscuits there. Squeak is absolutely adorable.

MOUSE

Mouse
Meet Mouse! This little guy is a bundle of energy, cuddles, joy, and sheer entertainment. As of June 20th, he's about 10½ weeks old and weighs just a little over two pounds and squeaks when he meows (hence his name). Don't let his weight fool you though, he loves to eat! When he hears the food bag rustle, he comes flying. He was the smallest of the litter of 11 Maine-coon-mix kittens and is currently being fostered with his sister Mocha and his mother Percavelle. He recently attended Lavender Festival and helped to work the SARG booth for a full 6 hours, loving every minute of attention that was showered on him and impressing everyone who stopped by for a cuddle or a picture. After playing long and hard, his favorite thing to do is snuggle up to your neck and crash. Warning: apply only if you have a high threshold for pure adorableness and personality! *Comes with a catnip-filled cheese toy. Mouse and Mocha are littermates with Chocolate and Moose.

BLONDIE

Blondie
Blondie is a gorgeous Himalayan mix of indeterminate age -- probably about 8-10, rescued from Anderson County Animal Shelter. We were told she was surrendered when her owner died and no one in the family wanted her. Blondie is beautiful and shy. She pretty much lives in a closet or sequestered space. We don't know her story, but she's obviously frightened of the world around her. She uses her litter box and comes out to eat. And at those times, she'll let people pet her and love on her. But then she returns to her safe place. She'd do best in a home that can provide a closet or small room where she can feel safe. Blondie may become more adapted to life in the real world over time with love and care.

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.
