Cats Available for Adoption
Pansy is 9 weeks old and came into SARG a month ago (late
October) with her little brother through a local shelter.
They were weak, emaciated, and flea-ridden. She was brought
to the vet, where unfortunately her brother passed away.
She went to her foster as a solo kitten to live with two
papillon dogs, and there she strengthened and healed. One
month later she is 100% kitten -- all sugar and spice.
Smart, curious, playful, and snuggly, she loves toys that
dangle and jingle. When tired she finds her foster mom and
climbs onto her shoulder or in the crook of her neck,
purring and sometimes making up dough before going to sleep.
Pansy needs a true cat-loving home that will enjoy her social
behaviors. She plays on her own nicely, but she wants to
interact. In a perfect world she would have a playful cat or
dog companion too. She's litter-trained and eats wet and dry
food. The foster states, "She not the average cat. She
shows a delightful personality and somehow she makes me feel
loved and important. I think she is one of those

After being abandoned by his family and living on the streets
for a few years, Franklin is ready to settle down in a quiet
home where he can lie on a warm lap to his heart's content. His
greatest love is human affection, and after a few days of figuring
out that the house was a safe place, he now runs out to greet his
fosters every time we walk in the door of his area. You will fall
in love with his big head and serious face, and how he looks like
he’s yelling when he does his cute little whispery meow. He is an
active cuddler, so we will often be holding a book with one hand
and petting him with the other.
Franklin has an issue with his back legs that causes him to walk a
little funny, but diagnostic tests have ruled out any serious causes
(we are continuing to figure out the issue, and will cover the costs
of any treatment after adoption if needed). He’s still able to move
around and jump up onto a couch height, but because of this he has
no interest in cat trees or anything higher up!
Because of his past, it seems like he would be happier in a home
without dogs, but it’s unclear whether he would do well with other cats.

RON AND HERMOINE
Meet Ron and Hermione! Hermoine is the one with the
white blaze on her forehead. These siblings are 7
weeks old as of November 18. Rescued with their mom
at two days old, these kittens have been handled and
loved on constantly by the staff at the vet clinic that
they currently call home. But now they are ready to find
real homes and real families. They can be adopted
either together or separately.

Do you want a cat with incredibly soft fur who is
also a snuggle bunny? If so, then Licorice is the
cat for you. He is about 4 months old (10/29) and
his fur is medium length; based on his looks compared
to other cats we’ve had in our program, we believe
he may be part Persian. When he arrived at his foster
home, he was totally black. Now small streaks of
white are appearing in his fur. His foster mom did
some internet research on this characteristic. Black
cats carry a gene that suppresses tabby stripes.
If this gene is not completely suppressed, you can
see some faint tabby markings. Licorice’s tail has
some slight white stripes. If you provide a lap for
him, he will reward you with loud purrs. This little
one is a miracle baby--he was starving in an
overcrowded shelter where this little mite was in
great need of care and substantial food. SARG scooped
him up, and we're so glad we did. He's a sweet,
loving little fur boy. There are two other kittens
in his foster home, and he loves wrestling with them
and then finding a person to cuddle. He would do best
in a home with adults and middle school and older kids.

Holmes is an orange tuxedo tabby bobtail who is
about 6 months old (10/29). Those gorgeous copper
eyes will just melt your heart. He is very friendly,
and he views every lap as a place to cuddle. 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 the other kittens in the foster
home where he lives. This striking boy loves people—
and wants to hang around with them 24/7.

Watson is an orange tabby bobtail (he has a half
tail) cat. He’s about 6 months old (10/29). He
is shy, so it takes a while for him to warm up to
strangers. Once he does, he loves to sit with his
humans and be petted. Besides observing nature
from various windows and the screened porch, Watson’s
favorite activity is wrestling with the other kittens
in his foster home and playing "chase the kitty."
He would do best in a home with just one or two people
who will give him time to adjust to a new situation.
He’ll reward you by being a loving companion.

Mr. K's foster dad has this to say about him: "Mr.K is one
lucky 12-week-old -- as of Aug 9, 2021 -- male orange tabby! I
was walking down the road a few weeks ago when I heard a few
faint mews comming from a hedge of bushes across the street.
I went to investigate, I looked into the hedge, and he was
looking at me. I motioned for him to come out, and I asked
him if he would like some food and a place to stay. You
could see the joy in his eyes! He was dancing between my
feet as I headed home. He was so hungry I think he ate
about 40 cans of cat food before he slowed down. He was
one skinny guy. Life is an adventure, isn't it? Now, I could
have never imagined that this cat was so special. He's very
playful, intelligent, caring, respectful, and he's great with
his litter box and food area. Yep, I'm the lucky one. He's
also very respectful of my 9-year-old cat -- maybe because he
outweighs Mr.K by 10 pounds. Ha! But I do think he would like
a roommate who is closer to his age. He is a true joy to have
around. If he's not playing, he likes getting on the couch
with me and snuggling and being petted. He has a cat bed, a
stadium blanket, a scratcher, and his toys. He's had his
first shots and has no issues. I've had many cats and this
is a good one. I'm glad he's here!"

POUNCE WAYNE (aka BATCAT)
Pounce lives up to her name! She is a very playful, precious, and
affectionate 4-month-old kitten. She gives her foster family
"hugs." The first time you experience it, your heart will
just melt! Do you stay at home? She would love to be your constant
companion. Work all day? Coming home to her would be the highlight
of your day! She wants to curl up on your lap and cuddle or play.
You can’t help but laugh and smile at her silly antics and sweet
meow. She runs straight over for loving as soon as you walk in the
door. She is up to date on her shots now, microchipped, spayed and
ready to find her forever home.

CLARK KIT (aka SUPAWMAN)
Clark is a 4-month-old male drama cat. Having 3 other siblings, he
learned early on the easiest way to get attention is to lie down in
your path and stretch out as much as he can to get your attention!
He’s very laid-back and relaxed, but he also loves to play. He
manages to sleep in the strangest positions. His goofball antics
will keep you laughing. He has medium whispy hair that gives him
a roguish, wild look. His curiosity leads him to want to stick his
head into anything and check it out -- including Yeti cups and
refrigerators. He is up to date on his shots, neutered,
microchipped, and ready to provide comical entertainment.

Happy Tails -- Cats Adopted or Pending
Sassy Sasha is what Sasha's foster mom likes to call this quirky,
sweet, 7-year-old Maine-coon-mix cat. Sasha has huge green eyes and
thick, luxurious black fur. She is friendly and playful but calm,
and she will let you know when she wants something, like attention
or food, with a gentle swipe of her paw and a loud meow.
Sasha greets all visitors at the door and likes to stay and
"chat" with them. Definitely very curious.... She is
comfortable with other cats and dogs and is perfectly litter-box
trained. It is very easy to fall in love with this very special
cat with lots of personality and catitude. Please open your heart
to this beautiful feline and help her find the permanent home she
so richly deserves.
Rosie's foster mom says "Rosie is the most cuddly little
lap-cat I’ve ever met. She’ll lie down on you as soon as you
sit, happily purr on your shoulder if you pick her up, and loves
to just sleep nearby or watch when you’re busy. She is very
curious and especially likes looking out the window,and exploring
new cat trees and tunnels, but her favorite thing besides
people is food. She has done really well with our dog, and
has even cuddled with him, so I think she would be happy in
many types of homes including with respectful dogs, other
cats, and small children. Rosie truly is the ideal cat, and
she’s ready for a new best friend!"
Luna is a pretty, black kitty with striking white whiskers and eyebrows.
She is about 6 years old as of June, 2021. 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

How could anyone not fall in love with beautiful, 6-year-old,
domestic-long-hair, part-Maine-coon cat, Leo? This little
black ball of fluff with mesmerizing green eyes is completely
litter-box trained and gets along beautifully with everyone --
dogs, cats, children, etc. In fact, he is so friendly and
outgoing, he greets everyone as they come in the front door.
His foster mom thinks that perhaps he is a dog in cat's
clothing. If you are interested in adopting a loving companion
with movie-star looks, then Leo is the perfect cat for you.
Simone is a female 10 to 11 weeks old and has a clean bill of health!
She has started on flea and tick prevention, received dewormer and
her first vaccination. Simone has a lot of personality and loads of
kitten energy, and she wants to play all the time -- preferably with
her foster family or her red jingle ball. She likes to sleep with
her family and snuggles in close every night. She immediately
begins to purr and snuggle up when you pick her up or pet her.
Simone is a special little baby and someone is going to hit the
jackpot when they adopt her. Her next appointment for booster shots is

OREO AND PEPE LE PEW
Looking for a snuggle bunny? One of these two boys might
fit that bill. Oreo and Pepe LePew are lively, cuddly, sweet,
four-month-old, black-and-white kittens (as of May 8). They are
people-oriented and really want a human lap to sit in. They
can be adopted separately or together. They never met a toy
they didn’t like to play with.

ARTHUR FURRY (aka AQUAMAN/FURRYMAN)
He’s the fluffiest and most cuddly of the supaw cats. While he looks
larger than his brothers, he weighs slightly less. He keeps his foster
family laughing with all his silly clown antics, then he loves to sit
and cuddle to wind down. This kitten LOVES to play! He has a white
spot on his belly and a few wild stray white hairs on his chest and
paws but otherwise is black with black stripes, and when the sunlight
hits his coat you can see dark brown highlights.
More photos of Arthur.
DIANA PURRINCE (aka WONDER WOMAN)
She may be much smaller than her brothers, but Diana can take on
her own villains without them! She’s usually the first one to
figure out most things and her brothers follow along. Her hobbies
include eating, playing, cuddling, and sleeping. A comical mustache
adorns her dainty precious face. This furry little escape artist
has much interest in human activities, objects, and technology.

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.
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.

Video of Carter playing with 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
