Important Note

Gracie is best friends with Socks. Please adopt both of them so they can stay together!

Meet Gracie & Socks! Gracie is a 3 or 4 year old grey tabby who is curious, sassy, independent, and loving. She's a talkative girl who will always let you know what is on her mind, but it's up to you to learn to translate cat, as she refuses to learn to speak human. She is initially standoffish until you have proven your worth to her, but once it's been established that you're worthy she will shower you with affection in the form of rubbing against your legs, licking any exposed skin, and curling up on your chest while purring. Her other favorite activity is playing and scampering about with her brother from another mother Socks. Tuxedo Socks was found abandoned on the street and is estimated to be between 3 to 4 years. He was brought home and after a short period of transition he and Gracie became fast friends. Socks is the more cautious of the pair and will hide in the presence of new people, but eventually his curiosity (and stomach!) will get the better of him and he'll come out to visit. Like Gracie, he can be quite the talker, but generally only when he specifically wants something. Like food. Socks is very fond of food, and seems to think that every meal is his last one. Socks is also a cuddler, and he loves to snuggle on laps or against chests. Ideally we'd like for this bonded pair to be able to stay together.

About Tails High, Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

Our Organization

Tails High is a cat rescue and adoption organization based in Alexandria, Virginia founded and staffed by compassionate volunteers who find joy in placing stray, abandoned, or homeless cats and kittens in permanent loving homes. We know that there is a perfect rescue cat for everyone.

In making wonderful feline-human matches, Tails High is dedicated to helping both rescued cats and kittens and their human families by providing wonderful cats to people looking for a sympathetic ear and a soft purr. We believe that cats are ideal companions: highly intelligent, and therapeutic.

Our Cats

All our cats and kittens have tested negative for feline leukemia and FIV, are current on their vaccinations, and have been or will be spayed or neutered prior to adoption. We spend a lot of time playing and cuddling with our rescue kitties, as well as socializing them, and making sure they learn to love their people as much as their people love them.

Our Adoption Process...

We have a Foster-To-Adopt program that allows you to test the cat in your home for a period of time on a trial basis before finalizing the adoption. In fact, when you have another pet in the home (whether it’s a dog, another cat, birds, rabbit, ferret, etc.) or you have young kids or elderly parents living with you, we recommend that you do a Foster-To-Adopt to make sure it is a good fit for you and your family as well as resident pets and the Tails High cat or kitten(s) you’ve selected. Our goal is to make every effort to match people with the cats or kittens that fit their lifestyle and vice versa.

What costs are involved in adopting a cat from Tails High?

All of the cats and kittens at Tails High are fully vetted at the time of adoption. They are FELV/FIV combo tested, vaccinated against rabies and distemper, and they have been spayed or neutered to protect against the feline population increasing.

As of May 2015, the adoption fee is $145 for single cat or kitten and $225 for a pair. This is a huge savings to the adopter considering if you took the same cat to a veterinarian for a spay or neuter surgery and vaccinations the cost would be upwards of $300-500 per cat.
