Hello, my name is Carissa and I've had kind of a rocky start to life. You see, My first family took me home fully intending to love me and keep me safe. However, life got in the way and things went downhill from there. My human couldn't take care of herself let alone take care of me and I was found neglected and literally starving to death. Yes, It has been a hard knock life for me so far but I haven't given up hope! I do need a person who has the time, patience and love to help me heal and feel secure again. I'm great with kids and love to curl up at the end of the bed to sleep at night. I forgot how to be held and cuddled but I'm sure I can learn how when in a home willing to teach me how to trust again. Instead of pitying me, see the strength I possess to be whole again and give me the chance to create a life of happy memories.If you would like to meet me, please fill out an adoption application

Your application will be reviewed upon receipt. Once approved, arrangements will be made for you to meet the cat at one of our weekend adoption events

To ensure a certain cat is available to view at an event, please contact us by 7:00 pm Friday and we will do our best to accommodate. Please check the upcoming events for more information about Classy Cats adoption events dates and locations.

About Classy Cats

About Our Rescue Group...

Classy Cats is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit Texas Corporation registered with The State of Texas as a feline rescue & adoption agency. But, Classy Cats isn’t just another rescue and adoption group. Our founders and volunteers have been working cat rescue & adoption work for better than 20+ years, & collectively we have approximately 70 years of experience. We know our cats.

Our work is a labor of love and we work very hard to socialize and care for those cats we find homeless or on death row. All of our cats have been rescued from area animal shelters & pounds, or have been acquired from individuals who were no longer able to care for them

We specialize in companion animals for your home. We want to help place the cats in a home that will be a lifelong companion for them by ensuring you find the right personality for your needs.

Everyone in our organization volunteers their time and energy toward saving cat’s lives & finding them the best possible home. That means matching the cat to what the adopter wants in a cat, not just placing the cat in any home that wants a cat.

Our primary goal, in addition to placing as many homeless cats as possible into perfect homes, is to educate the public about the importance of spay & neuter and low cost locations that can provide this service.
