Message from the owner:


“Buster is almost 2 years old now. He's an orange, medium-haired cat. Buster was originally orphaned, and has been around my large (60 and 70 pound) dogs. He does well with them, and enjoys playing with them and bossing them around. He's a typical cat, so he likes being petted and then tells you to stop. He's a great combination of independent and social. Buster has only been an inside cat, as he is declawed as well. He's up to date on all of his shots, very well litter trained, and very playful. Whatever family is lucky enough to adopt Buster will also receive his enclosed litter box, toys, food bowl, and his favorite blanket, which he likes snuggling and kneading. (Buster would be the perfect first cat for a family!) I LOVE Buster and would love to keep him as a part of my family, but I recently accepted a job as an international teacher in Shanghai, China. China has strict limits on pets, so unfortunately Buster cannot accompany me. I was originally looking for a family that might allow me to have him back when I return, but I know that is not fair or really feasible. I only ask that he go to the BEST, most LOVING family around, and preferably that family sends me periodic pictures and updates - kind of like an open adoption.”

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.
