Good Heart, Hard Life
“Hi! We’re good-hearted, nice girls – sisters, we think – and we’d very much like to grow up to be complete cats. When we first arrived, we were too shy for either of us to just step right up in front and start performing. Not anymore! Attention - yes! Charm - plenty! I’m Tuffy, and I’m a small orange tabby – very tabby, very orange. And I am Wizard, and I am very, very black with alert and watchful yellow eyes.”
“We won’t pussy-foot around – even though, between us, we’ve got eight feet with which to do so. If we were people, you’d say, ‘Those nice little girls came from the wrong side of the tracks….” We’re not sure what that means – looks like we’re north of the tracks right now – but, yes, we’re not even a year old, and, until we got to Feline Rescue, we were having a hard, hard life. Somebody finally dumped us here, along with a bunch of other scruffy young ones. Honestly, Dolly Parton should do a song about us.”
"We quickly acquired some great mentors at Feline Rescue. There was Henry Schultz - such dreamy eyes, and now we have Mufasa, an orange scamp. They played Henry Higgins to our Eliza Doolittles, and now we are pure charm and fun. Tuffy just loves laps - and she can purr. Wizard will amuse you while Tuffy loves you up. Such good mentors - our guys!
“We think our mom cat wasn’t very healthy. Tuffy now has the FIV, which means she’s fine and healthy but really has to watch her immune system – and eat well – which we weren’t able to do before. Wizard says she tilts her head to one side because someone at Hogwart’s goofed up a spell casting. Tuffy says, ‘We never got to Hogwart’s, and my sis just has a crooked neck.’”
“We’re just about as good-hearted as two young women from the south side of the tracks and the back side of the holler could be. We’d like nothing more than a warm, safe, loving home where we could sit in a cozy window and sleep in a big, real cat bed – even, maybe, on a people bed. Wow – wouldn’t that be something!”
"We're giving people another chance. If you’re warm and loving, we’d like to know. You don’t have to be Dolly Parton to adopt us – although we wouldn’t mind if she did. All you need is your own good heart and $235. We suppose you could adopt just one of us if that's your wish, but, frankly, we'd both feel better with each other.”

By adopting a Feline Rescue cat you will be supporting a caring, no-kill shelter and making room for one more homeless cat. We are always looking for good, safe, loving homes for our many cats and kittens. We want to be sure placements are a success for both parties, so before we send our feline friends home with anyone, we ask you to fill out a basic questionnaire. Since we work with cats everyday we will be able to suggest a perfect match to your needs. If a sponsorship fits your schedule better, you may support a cat of your choice and we will send you pictures and updates. All of our cats are feline leukemia/FIV tested, fecal tested, neutered/spayed, vaccinated and all of our kittens are vet checked, fecal checked and given their first set of shots. All receive high-quality veterinary care and exams. We charge an adoption fee to offset these costs. Adoption Hours: We are open seven days a week for adoptions, but our hours do vary because we are staffed entirely by volunteers. Call (651) 642-5900 for specific times and more information.
