I'm Winston (aka Winnie) and I am the cat's meow just look at how handsome I am!  I might be a bit timid at first, but once I learn to trust you we'll be the best of pals.  I love running water - faucets, showers, bathtubs - you name it, I'll come running when I hear water running somewhere, something about it!  I let you know when I'm happy, want a belly rub and when I need some time to myself - my tail speaks for me.  I'll teach you how to read my tail if you give me a chance.  I like to play with feather wands, string toys or really anything that rolls on the floor and I'm also learning that fingers aren't  toys - my Foster Mom has been a very good teacher!  I will love you with cuddles and even asked to be held at times.  I've had foster kitty companions and with time and patience, I got along great with them.  I do better with nice non-dominant kitties though.  I had a small doggie companion in my former home, so if you have a sweet doggie that likes kitties, I should be fine with him/her too.  I startle easy - I don't do well with loud noises (vacuum cleaner, blow dryer and sometime a washer or dryer) not sure why - so if you don't mind protecting me from these things, I will show you my deepest love and appreciation by talking to you - I love to talk, I've been told that I have a cute little "meow" for such a big guy like me - I guess that makes me even cuter, don't you think?

If you can't adopt me right now, perhaps you will consider being my temporary Foster Family?  Please email and ask how you can become my Foster - that would make me very happy too.  Thank you for your interest!

Texas CARES was established in 1992 and is a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization. All of Texas CARES' funding comes from donations and fundraising events.

Our Goals:
*To find permanent homes for our animals

Our Adoption Process...

Texas CARES' cats and kittens ARE NOT FOR SALE.
Cats and kittens are adopted by completing an adoption application that will be reviewed by the Texas CARES volunteer staff. Potential adopter(s) will be notified of the status of their application. This process can take 48-72 hours. Applications for adoption can be obtained from a Texas CARES volunteer or found on our website: Adoption fees are tax deductible donations.
