Cats Available for Adoption
Blueberry is just adorable -- the perfect lap cat! She is a medium-haired
charcoal Siamese mix, approximately 6 months old. We named her Blueberry
when we got her because her hair would stick up at odd angles like the top
of a blueberry. She has grown into the most beautiful and regal young kitty.
Blueberry likes to cuddle a lot! Any time you are in bed she is curled up
touching you in some way -- either against your legs, on your lap or on your
chest. She likes to sit in your lap and watch TV, too. Whatever her foster
mom is doing around the house she is right there wanting some attention.
Blueberry also likes high places -- the top of her cat tree or the top shelf
in the closet make great places for naps when no lap is available. Blueberry
gets along with the other cats in her foster home, but she would do just
fine as an only kitty too.

This past fall, five little kittens lost their mother. But never fear,
SARG rescued them. Three of the five have now found their "furever"
homes. One of the remaining ones is Martha Washington, who is a very sweet
gray tabby about 12 weeks old as of 12-19. Curiosity is her middle name –
she is always checking everything out, and every new Amazon delivery is
thoroughly vetted by her. She is a lap-cat, but in her foster home she
has to take turns with the other lap-cats that live there. She needs to
be in a home with at least one other kitty, or with people who are home
most of the day, since she is very much a people-cat.

Introducing Pluto, a beautiful, green-eyed, one-year-old,
part-Siamese, and totally-black male cat. Pluto, named
after the cat in the terrifying and gruesome Edgar Allan
Poe short story, "The Black Cat" is anything but terrifying.
He is cute and adventurous, uses the litter box, does beautifully
with children, is not scared of dogs and gets along with other cats.
He can morph from being sweet and cuddly to playful and mischievous
in a nanosecond. Pluto loves attention, and who needs cat toys? He
will play for hours just pushing a pencil around the floor. During
this COVID pandemic, here is a furry friend who will provide hours
of entertainment and love while you are stuck at home. Please help
find this very special young cat a furever family..

Luna is a pretty, black kitty with striking white whiskers and eyebrows.
She is about 5 years old as of May, 2020. 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

Update January 9, 2021: Thanks to all who have inquired about and
applied to adopt these little ones. We have had high interest in them
and are now working through the applications and queries that we have,
and we are confident that we will be able to select homes for them from
the responses received to date. Again, thanks to everyone who has been
kind enough to offer these babies a home.
A Litter of 5! SARG has a litter of five kittens that were born on
Nov. 19, 2020. Two of them are male orange tabby, two are female
grey/brown tabby, and one is a female calico tabby. All are super-friendly
playful kitties that are very lucky to be alive. Having been born right
at the start of winter they were found by a dear friend of SARG and
taken in right away. These kitties have already had one appointment
with our vet, and they are healthy, strong, and growing just as they
should. They will be ready for their forever homes on January 15th.
SARG will, of course, pay for all the necessary shots, microchipping
and spay/neuter with our veterinarian.
Chairman Meow is a 9-week-old (as of 12/19/20) bundle of fluff
and energy. He is very much a people-cat and wants to be wherever
the people are in his foster home, so he'd do best in a home where
a human is present a fair amount of the time. We do know already
that Chairman Meow needs a home with at least one other kitty --
probably one that's under three years old. And this is a very
social kitten who loves people, feline friends, and laps.

Have you ever wanted to play fetch with a kitty? Well, Desi
wants to play fetch with you! He is better at fetch than most
dogs!! Desi is a short-haired brown tabby about 7 months old
(as of Christmas 2020) who loves attention. He follows his
foster mom all over the house, usually with a small ball or
toy in his mouth. He is just waiting for a good game of fetch.
When he is done playing, he is ready for a snuggle on your
lap – Desi is such an amazing lap cat! Desi is also ready
to cuddle at night. He sleeps on the bed, usually at your
side snuggled against your leg, or at your feet, and he sleeps
like a log all night long. He also gets along with all the
other cats in the foster home, older cats and younger ones
that he can wrestle with. Desi will make a great addition to

Alexander Hamilton is an orange-and-white tabby boy -- lots of
energy and love.

Apollo was named after a Greek god known for his beauty. This
striking black-and-white tuxedo kitty -- about seven years
old -- is looking for his new forever home. Apollo has recently
lived with another cat, so we know he’s cat-friendly. He’s also
very people-friendly -- his previous owner says he's "all about
his people." He is only available for adoption due to serious
health issues of his previous people. Our vets say he is friendly
and sweet. He’s ready for the next chapter in his life.

Lucy is a sweet, cuddly, 4-month-old (as of September 15)
girl with great big eyes.
She is tabby with calico markings and little white feet.
Lucy loves to give you kisses all the time, and as soon as
you pick her up, she is purring. She cuddles her foster mom's
teenage daughter all night, sleeping right up on her pillows.
Lucy has never met a stranger and enjoys being held by everyone.
The foster home she is in has several other cats/kittens, and
she gets along with all of them.

Our Butters boy is approximately a year old and is an unusual,
unmarked yellow color -- only his tail has tabby stripes -- thus
his name of Butters. Butters loves human attention, wants to be
with people and be loved on. He’s good with other cats, too, and
appears to not mind dogs. We’re just getting to know him as of 11/4/2020.

This bewitching kitten is Sabrina, a 5-month-old tabby
with an enchanting personality! She loves to romp and play
all day, and would make a great friend to another young cat.
She adores dogs and gets along well with other cats. Sabrina
is soft and snuggly and loves interacting with people. She
has a lot of energy and is spellbound by all of the toys to
play with in her foster home! Will you take this magical
kitten into your heart and home?

those lovely blue eyes.

George Washington is a Siamese mix, possibly blue point --
it's a little hard to tell yet. Notice the lovely blue eyes.

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.

George Bailey is a gorgeous Maine coon mix boy of about 4½-5
years old. He's in a foster home with another cat, so we know he
gets along with other cats. George was a stray found in a barn
who was taken in by a family who ultimately decided they couldn't
keep him. He had been chipped at one point, but attempts to contact
the original owner went nowhere. SARG has re-chipped him so that
his chip information is up to date. Now he's looking for a true
"forever" home. George appears to like people and will
sit on laps. As we have him longer, we'll discover more about
this stunning boy.

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

Do you want a sweet, cuddly kitten to call your own? If the answer
to that is yes, then Brianna could be the cat for you. She is a black
Maine coon mix with medium-length fur who is about 3 months old (October 4).
Her days are filled with being sure everything is running smoothly in
her foster home and playing with Kon-Tiki, another foster.
More photos of Brianna.

Kon-Tiki is a 5½-month-old (as of October 13) Maine coon mix.
He is a black-and-gray tabby with medium-length fur. He has a
bob tail -- whether by birth or by trauma, we don’t know. He
may be mixed with Manx as well as Maine coon. Regardless,
what tail he has is a bushy brush. When he’s not busy exploring
and playing with his toys (which is most of the time), he will
sit in your lap and reward you with loud purring.

About two years old, Maggie (with her 3 kittens) was rescued from
the Oak Ridge Animal Shelter. Now that the kittens are in their
furever homes, Maggie is looking for her final home. Maggie is a
very sweet cat who loves to be wherever you are. She follows her
people, and will sit in a lap and purr contentedly. Since Maggie
does not appreciate other cats, she would be happiest in a home
where she is the only cat. She is a polydactyl
on both front feet, meaning she has extra toes. Polydactyls (also
known as "Hemingway cats," since he rescued many over the
years) were prized by sailors for their extraordinary climbing and
hunting abilities. They were believed to bring good luck. So if
you want a beautiful, loving kitty to bring you good luck, put in
an application for Maggie.
