Cats Available for Adoption
Hi. I'm Lexie. I'm 2 or 3 years old. When you first see me you probably
think, "What a pretty grey cat." In fact I am a silver-grey
dilute Tortie. But look at me a second time, and you will see all of my
blonde highlights. I may have gone a little heavy on the blonde under my
green eyes, but I honestly don't think a hairdresser could have done any
better!!! I like to do figure-8's around your legs, and when I am exhausted,
I collapse on your feet. Once we get to be pals, I like to nap on your lap,
so have a good book handy.

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

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

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
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.

If you love spunk, charm, affection, mesmerizing, huge green eyes, and
an adorable stubby tail, then April is the perfect cat for you. She is a
petite (5 pounds, 8 ounces), one-year-old cat who looks and acts like a
playful but loving kitten. And if you have your heart set on having a
lap cat, then you will fall head-over-lap for April. In fact, her foster
mother is typing this description on her computer while April is
snoozing comfortably in her lap. April is totally litter-box trained and
gets along well with other cats and dogs. Many cats are shy when meeting
new people, but not April. She will often leap right into a visitor's
lap and begin purring contentedly. This sweet tabby (born in the month
of April) is looking for her forever home. She can't wait to go home

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.

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

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.
More photos of Eva.
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!

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.
