Kaylee—AnimaLovers's Featured Feline


AnimaLovers rescued my mom when she was pregnant. When I was little, I had an ear infection that left me with a slight head tilt (makes me even cuter!) and a little trouble with my balance. I am super friendly and love a lap to sit on. I like cats, dogs and I think I’d also do well around children. I just love company and like to follow my foster parents; I can't wait for them to sit down to play with me! After playing, I’m happy to sit on a lap for a little nap! on their lap.

AnimaLovers is making it very easy for my perfect family to adopt me by offering to waive my adoption fee. I would LOVE to be in my new home by the holidays, so if you think you would like to learn more about me, please call the AnimaLovers volunteers right away at 348-3903, and then press 1 for the adoption line!

I was abandoned by my original family, and then I thought I'd found a home but that owner had to give me up. I really am such a nice boy (in addition to being very handsome!). I'm sweet and gentle, and my foster parents say I am so easy to have as a member of a household. I may be a little shy at first, since I've had a few rough turns in my life; but, I will settle in pretty quickly, and then I'll show my true self--affectionate, outgoing, and loving! I would really love to find a permanent home by the holidays; please call 348-3903, and press 1 if you'd like to meet me! Top of Page
Sweet Pea
Sweet Pea certainly deserves her name! she was a totally loving mom, raising her babies in a foster home with many other animals. Sweet Pea is still a very young cat; she is sweet and loving, but she is still very playful. We will be very happy when she finds the kind and loving home she deserves. Silas is like his mother Sweet Pea--very sweet and loving; he is very bonded with his brother Sebastian. Sebastian is playful and fun-loving, and loves to run. He loves the world!

Another cute kittie that is lots of fun!Abbott is six months old, very friendly, out-going, and afraid of nothing! Since he is a very high energy boy, he needs a feline companion (AnimaLovers will be happy to recommend another kittie you can adopt with Abbott!)

To meet him, just call us at 348-3903, and press 1. Top of Page
Domino is a 4-month-old kitten that was rescued with her siblings from a city neighborhood on a busy street. She was extremely scared when she first came to her foster home, but she has really come a long way. She loves being held and will lie in her foster mom's arms purring for the longest time! She likes a cuddle cup cat bed or a cubby in a cat tree where she can hang out. And once she's comfortable, she will lie on the top of the cat tree or on a chair, and you can approach her with no problem. She will immediately purr when you pet her.

She might do better in a quieter home. She loves wet food, which is one way to butter her up and earn her trust! She does love other cats and would probably benefit from being in the presence of an outgoing, friendly kitty companion. To meet her, call 348-3903, and press 1. Top of Page
Many of us at AnimaLovers really enjoy a cat that has a really strong personality; if you concur, you will want to meet Snuggles! Snuggles is a 2-year-old rag doll mix.

He likes to follow you around and will meow to grab your attention to get you to pet him. He enjoys playing with toys and will do just about anything for a treat. He is very curious and likes to be near you to see what you are doing. He was diagnosed with an eye condition and his foster mom has been giving him medicine that he takes orally and has been working well. Call AnimaLovers at 348-3903 and press 1 to meet Snuggles!

I am the sweetest, friendliest and most loving adult cat my foster parents have ever met! My owner was evicted and left me behind. A very kind neighbor took me in and contacted Animalovers to find me a forever home. Since I am completely gentle, I would be an ideal pet for children, the elderly, absolutely anyone. I like attention almost all the time and I enjoy being in a lap or beside you. I even greet you at the door and love to cuddle up with you in bed at night. Kitties simply don't come any sweeter than I am. Whoever adopts me will have truly struck gold! Are you ready to meet the most loyal friend you will ever have?

Winston is a young and very handsome boy. He has a great time playing with the other cats in his foster home, especially zooming around the house playing chase. He also loves getting human attention, which is accompanied by having his chin and ears scratched.

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
