Our Featured Feline


Eddie loves people
I follow my foster mom everywhere--she says I'm amazingly affectionate. Right now, I need my humans all to myself--I can't share my space with another cat. It might be because I come to AnimaLovers from a sad, recent past; my foster mom found me crying in an alley after I was abandoned by my owners. So, maybe I'll be able to get along with other cats in the future; but, right now, I need to just share some lovin' with kind people.

And, AnimaLovers really wants to see that I get a loving home, so I am available for a very special adoption fee! Please call AnimaLovers if you'd like to meet me--348-3903, and press 1 for the adoption line.
Little Penny is really sweet and incredibly loving and cuddly. She loves to cuddle on laps, and then flip to her back for a tummy rub! This brings on exceptionally loud purring, making her whole body vibrate! She is also very bright and knows her name.

In addition to loving humans, Penny loves looking out the window and watching all the outside activity. She loves to eat and loves treats. Penny is Just an all-around great cat! You can call 348-3903, and press 1 to meet her. Top of Page
I'm Trixie, and I'm an adorable 3-month-old girl! I was in a high-kill shelter in Alabama when an AnimaLovers volunteer heard about me and offered to help me find a home. I'm a cute little bundle of fun and energy. I'm very curious and playful, enjoying cat toys and interacting with the other kitties in my foster home. I'm also outgoing and lovable. I like spending time with my foster parents. I love to be held and sit on their laps. I'll purr when petted and sleep curled right next to them. If you're looking for a loyal little love bug, look no further and call 348-3903, and press 1. Top of Page
My name is Mischa and I'm 9 months old. If you're looking for a sweet and petite companion with a one-in-a-million personality, you have to meet me! I enjoy lounging in my cozy pet bed and I love my cardboard scratcher. I do have a playful side and have fun interacting with the other cats in my foster home. I definitely need a friendly cat companion because I get along so well with other cats. I'm also happy to receive attention from the humans in my life. I greet my foster mom at the door. I enjoy being petted, and you'll enjoy petting me because my fur is as soft as silk. My foster mom is totally in love with me, and she'll have a hard time letting me go. She says I'm extra special and my forever family will be so lucky to take me home! Call 348-3903, and press 1 to meet me! Top of Page
I have a lot of items on my "Like" list: Toys, catnip, cardboard boxes, dogs, other cats, and humans! When I'm tired of playing with all my toys and friends, I like to snuggle up with my humans. I'm ready to meet you--just call 348-3903, and press 1. Top of Page
Just walk into the room, look at me, or talk to me--and I will PURR! I just love attention!! Love me, and I will love you right back. Since I'm just a kitten, I also love to play with my toys, but I would really like to play with you! Call 348-3903, and press 1 to meet me! Top of Page
I'm a young boy (and quite handsome, too!). I love to play with my toys, but I also love quiet time with my humans. I love snuggling and sleeping with my foster parents. I'm just happy playing and snuggling! If I sound purrfect for you, call AnimaLovers to learn how you can meet me--348-3903, and press 1. Top of Page
I was found living by myself on the streets; so, I might be a little shy when I first meet you. But, once I get to know you, I am one of the sweetest, most affectionate boys you will ever meet! I love to be held and cuddled, and I love snuggle time. And, since I'm still young, I also love to play with my toys. And, if that information wasn't enough to want to meet me--I am also great with other cats!! So, please, give me a forever home; start by calling my AnimaLovers friends at 348-3903, and press 1 for the adoption line. Thanks! Top of Page
Felicity and Fletcher are 3 1/2 month-old siblings that were discovered in a box in Troy when they were tiny babies. Felicity might be a little shy until she gets to know you, but she is a sweet and friendly girl. Fletcher is very self-confident and had no trouble settling in. In their foster home, they are good-natured kittens and quite sociable. They enjoy attention and purr when petted. Since they are young kittens, they are both playful and love to chase each other around the house. Their antics can be very entertaining! They also love other cats and are friendly with all the other felines in their foster home.

Call 348-3903, and press 1 to meet them. Top of Page
My human passed away, but AnimaLovers promised to find me a new human (or a family of humans) to love me and give me a new home. I'm very friendly, and I like to be held. Have a dog? No problem; I like them, too. So, if you are interested in meeting me, please call AnimaLovers at 348-3903, and press 1 for the adoption line. Top of Page
Sam and Sara are a young brother and sister pair. (Be sure to click on either Sam's or Sara's picture to see how cute they are when they are together!) Both of them can be independent, but they also like to hang out with their foster mom. Sam lets his mom carry him, and Sara thinks it's great that she's allowed to sleep with her foster mom!Since they are so active, we were surprised when the vet diagnosed both of them with heart murmurs. They are currently on meds and will require a recheck in six months. They are playful, loving, and would love a home of their own. And, we think there is a home out there with loving humans that will be happy to provide that for them! If that's you, please give us a call at 348-3903, and press 1 for the adoption line!

Squiggy was adopted!
I'll bet you can tell by my cute picture that I'm very friendly! I'm very outgoing; I will be happy following you around while you do your people work; but, when you're ready to relax, I'll sit on your lap! Oh, and I like cats, too. So, if you're looking for a very friendly (and cute!) young boy, call AnimaLovers at 348-3903, and press 1. Top of Page
Cali is a beautiful Tortie. When she first came to live with her foster family she was a little shy; but, her foster mom spent lots of time with her, and soon she was a playful and happy little kitty! Now, Cali likes to lie on your lap, and she happily purrs when you pet her. She also gets along fine with the other cats in her temporary home. If you’d like to meet her, just call 348-3903, and press 1 for the adoption line. Top of Page
Bartholomew "Bart"
I showed up in a feral cat colony in Albany, but I was friendly, so the volunteers who trapped me asked AnimaLovers to find me a safe home.

I’m social, charming and easy-going, and love being petted. I also like being picked up and cuddled, but my very favorite thing is to plop next to you to read or watch TV. I’ll sit with you forever.

You need to know that I have something called FIV: feline immunodeficiency virus. There are a lot of misconceptions about FIV. (Please read more about FIV on the home page.)It is contagious to other cats (not dogs or people), but it isn’t spread by eating from the same bowl or grooming; it’s spread by deep bite wounds when unneutered cats fight over “the ladies”. Being FIV positive does mean I have a compromised immune system, and if I’m exposed to disease I may catch it more easily than a non-FIV positive cat. That’s why it’s important that I live inside and get good vet care, like routine shots – but you’d do that anyway, right?

I hope you’ll join AnimaLovers in their hopes of getting more FIV-positive cats great homes—and, you can start with me!! Call 348-3903, and press 1 to meet me! Top of Page
Blake is a gorgeous, fun-loving little boy; he enjoys zooming about the house with or without his cat friends chasing him! He loves racing up the cat tree, playing with rubber balls, and is happy playing by himself!! AnimaLovers took him from a shelter that has a slow adoption rate, with hopes that we can get him quickly adopted. He would love to go on to his permanent home; please call to meet him--348-3903, and press 1 for the adoption line. Top of Page
We are such handsome brothers, and we are also laid-back boys that get along with other cats...and human kids! And, being rather mellow, we would probably even get along with friendly dogs. We are looking to go to a home together, since we tend to have anxiety when we are separated. And Andy needs to be on a Sensitive System food for the rest of his life because he gets an upset tummy if he doesn’t. We are eager to get to our forever home, and, if you are looking to add a pair of cats to your family, we believe that we are the best possible choice! Please call 348-3903, and press 1 to meet us.

I am so owner moved and couldn't take me. I am a sweet and affectionate girl who loves to give and get attention. I used to sit on my owner's lap (even though I'm not petite!). I was good at mothering other kitties in my home, too. I only want to go to a nice home where I will be loved, again. Please meet me and consider taking me home. Call 348-3903, and press 1 to find out how you can meet me. Top of Page

I’m a very, very active boy who loves to play, run and wrestle with my foster siblings (boy and girl cats from 5 months to 13 years old!), but when I’m ready to relax, I love snuggling, being petted and sleeping curled up next to my foster mom. I also love hanging out at the very top of the cat tree. I’m curious and outgoing and constantly look for something to keep me busy. I’m very smart, know my name, and come when mom calls. I can be a little overwhelming for low key, shy cats – I love to go, go, go! But my foster sister, Hannah, understands me and loves to play with me. We chase each other and wrestle – and are usually found in the same room, although not always next to each other. Please let us come home with you!

I was born on a farm after someone dumped my mom there. Luckily, the nice people who owned the farm took us all to the vet – and then asked AnimaLovers to please help us find homes.

Although I was a little scared in my foster home at first, after spending a few months learning to live with people, I’ve become a very affectionate girl. I'm a teensy bit shy and may even hide in a quiet place when I come to your home, but only at first! Once I get to know you and figure out that you like to pet me, I’m very sweet and will snuggle with you all the time. 

I’m very smart and know my name – now that my foster mom and I are buddies, I come when she calls me. I usually sleep snuggled next to her or draped over her legs! It would be great for me to have my friend Balki adopted with me--it will help me know I’m in a safe place – and give me someone else to cuddle with! Take me home and you won’t be sorry, I promise. Please call AnimaLovers to meet me: 348-3903, and press 1 for the adoption line. Top of Page
