From his owner:

'We are multi-cat household and one of our male adolescents has become an intolerable bully to the newest, smallest addition to our family.  We need to find him a new home -  one where he is the smallest or only cat.  He will be 4 in March; I rescued him (and his sister) after he was found in the terrible 2010 weather  He is spayed,  fully vetted and up to date with all shots and needs nothing until November, 2014.  Our vet will send records as needed, or I can provide paid bills from his appointments.  He tolerates anything (dogs, babies, toddlers, cold weather), is an indoor/outdoor kitty (litter box trained) and is very sweet.  A perfect cat except he beats chases our year old tiny cat to the top of 80' trees!  Currently we keep them separated but this is extremely inconvenient and they both deserve more freedom.  I think he would be especially wonderful for an elderly person looking for low maintenance company.  Please contact me with any questions (540-480-2884);' -Jan Painter

About Cat's Cradle of the Shenandoah Valley

About Our Rescue Group...

Founded in 1998, Cat’s Cradle seeks to end euthanasia of healthy adoptable cats and dogs in Shenandoah Valley through aggressive spay/neuter of owned animals and TNR (trap/neuter/release) of feral cats.

We also have a network of foster parents and an active adoption program for cats. In 2009 we opened an adoption center in Harrisonburg. We do not euthanize for space.

Please visit our website at: for more information.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We show our cats at PetSmart in Springfield, VA on most 1st and 3rd Saturdays, at the PetSmart in Harrisonburg, VA on some Saturdays and some Sunday afternoons, and at the Petsmart in Waynesboro on Saturdays. We also show cats at our adoption center at 124 S Main St. in Harrisonburg 11-6 M-F, and 11-5 Sat and 11-4 Sunday.

Please visit our website: for other adoption events and hours for showings or call the adoption center at 540-433-1135.

Our Adoption Process...

Please see our website: for a copy of our adoption application and adoption contract. Adoption fees vary, but generally run around $135.

All our cats are spayed or neutered before adoption, and fully vetted. We have an adoption center in Harrisonburg, but we also make extensive use of foster homes until adoption.

We generally prefer indoor only homes, and our contract specifies that the cat(s) will not be de-clawed.

We have some cats that cannot be adopted into an indoor situation. For these, we seek safe barn or out-building locations.
