Sly is Sponsored by: Rick Maifeld

Sly was rescued from Petaluma, CA. Sly was one on my special needs cats when I was Vet Tech at the (old) Healdsburg Shelter. He was adopted, but the living situation (over time) just didn’t work out, due to an alpha cat and a dog in the home. So Sly’s mom asked if I (SNAP Cats) could take him. And, or course, we/I said yes!

Sly had a lot of issues in his mouth when he was with me at the shelter. We removed bi-lateral sublingual tumors from under his tongue (three times because they grew back), treated him for gingivitis, and extracted many bad teeth. Eventually Sly had all of his teeth extracted and that cured all of his problems. Sly’s now pain free, in great shape, and loves his wet food treats!

Sly is a wonderful, loving, attention-seeking cat that deserves a nice, quiet home without much noise or disruption. He loves head butts, rubbing up against you and chin scratches. And, because Sly has no teeth, he cannot transmit FIV to other cats. Can you give Sly the home that he truly deserves? Thanks!

About SNAP Cats

About Our Rescue Group...

Animal shelters, cat rescues and sanctuaries in Sonoma County (and the U.S.) are full. Innocent cats are being killed due to lack of space and/or funds. The first cats to be killed are special needs, elderly and feral cats, or cats who aren’t deemed “adoptable.” That’s unacceptable.

SNAP Cats is the only rescue & sanctuary in Sonoma County dedicated to special needs cats. SNAP Cats' specific focus is rescuing these cats, housing them, then finding them loving homes. We believe, if given a few more days or weeks or months, an older or special needs or feral cat can find the home that they deserve.

Therefore all cats at SNAP Cats, regardless of health, age or temperament, are available for adoption or foster care. Those who cannot or are not adopted, due to age, illness or temperament, are able to live out the remainder of their natural lives in a peaceful, healthy, serene environment, free from judgment or harm.

Come Meet Our Pets...

SNAP Cats is open by appointment only. Please email or call to set up a day and time to come see our kittens and cats.

Our Adoption Process...

Adoption fee is a donation in an amount that the adopter feels is appropriate. All prospective adopters must fill out an adoption application, then meet with an adoption councilor. For local adoptions we perform a home inspection.
